Have you ever reached under your kitchen sink or into a bathroom cabinet for a bottle of household cleaner and wondered, “How toxic is this?” You want to use more natural cleaners for the safety of your home and family, but you’re not sure where to start.
I understand. Because I used to feel the exact same way.
You’re overwhelmed by the vast amount of information available.
You’re disappointed by cleaners that have failed to live up to their promises.
You’re skeptical about the effectiveness of natural products and the advice you find online.
You don’t know where to start.
At Bren Did, you’ll learn healthier ways to clean that are simple and effective. You don’t have to have a degree in chemistry, make your own soap, or give up your dishwasher.
The Journey to Natural Cleaning
I’m Bren, founder (and namesake) of Bren Did, and I want to help you learn how simple and effective green cleaning can be!
Since reading my very first cleaning label and deciding I could make my own furniture polish, I’ve spent 7 years researching and writing about natural cleaning. I’ve even been featured in places like the Wall Street Journal, Southern Living, and One Green Planet.
But it didn’t start out that way. When I first started, I was just a mom concerned about exposing my children to harmful ingredients.
I started researching cleaning ingredients and testing safer cleaners. Little by little I began to tune out the marketing and product advertisements telling me how I should clean and began to trust my own knowledge and experience.
