One of my goals as a Child Care Business Owner is to maintain a healthy and safe environment for young children. This is one of the reasons why I follow weekly health tips by Dr. Don Colbert.
Also, spring is a great time to review your health & safety practices or better yet….incorporate some new spring cleaning strategies.
Today I am going to share with you five of the Dos and Don’t of Spring Cleaning tips that has been recommended by Dr. Colbert in his article “Spring Cleaning Dos and Don’ts You Might Not Know.”
Do Clean your air with House Plants. *** Be sure to check to see that plants are not poisonous.
Don’t- use synthetic lawn care chemicals. The toxins in synthetic lawn care chemicals can make their way into your home daycare or center through the windows and through the soles of shoes.
Don’t Use Air Fresheners. The cleanest and safest odor is no odor at all.
Do reduce allergens. Switch to hard surface floors like tile and hardwood. Remove curtains and use easy-to-dust blinds for window coverings.
Don’t use conventional pesticides and herbicides in your garden. They leave toxic residues on your food, and dangerous chemicals from fertilizer can get soaked up into the food through the roots. Use natural ways to protect your garden from bugs.
