Today’s Podcast Topics

Anemia:
The main thing to note with anemia is that it’s best to closely monitor your levels with a health care provider (every 3-6 months, or so).  For a complete list of iron food sources, which are usually more effective than supplements, this post has all the details. But for a non-constipating iron supplement source, iron bisglycinate is relatively easy on the GI tract.

 

Natural Cleaning Products:
We like having an arsenal of ingredients at home to use for everything which includes vinegars (apple cider vinegar or white), tea tree oil, baking soda, witch hazel, borax, essential oils, dried lavender (for mothball prevention and as a dryer sheet replacement), Dr. Bronner’s castile soaps, and microfiber cloths.  

Soap Nuts are a great alternative to conventional laundry soap. 

Brittany loves these wool dryer balls for maintaining clothing new-ness: Smart Sheep 100% Wool Dryer Balls

Room freshener: essential oils and water in spray bottle

Furniture polish: 4-to-1 ratio of olive oil and vinegar with a few drops of lemon oil

Dishwasher solution: Brittany uses Dr. Bronner’s Orange Soap and Alex uses this mix (that works for hard water)

Floor cleaner recipe

Fruit and Vegetable Rinse

Scouring Powder

Chemical Free Disinfecting Wipes

Glass and Window Cleaner

 

Hydration Sources:
We love water with himalayan pink salt, coconut water, sparkling (mineral) water, and homemade gatorade mixes (like this one by Laura from myradicalroots.com).  We also talk about considerations with water such as the sustainability factor, timing around meals, and our thoughts on alkaline water.
