Hi there! I’m Marge Sweigart, proud mom of five and grandmother of nine (and counting). I’ve been married to my best friend, Steve, for more than three decades now.

If you’re like me, you want your home to be a safe and healthy refuge for yourself and your family.

We can't always control the conditions "out there", but we can take steps to control the quality of the environment inside our own homes.

My Mission on this site is to help make your home a safer and healthier place to live.

I didn't really think seriously about these things until I became a parent. But becoming responsible for the well-being of other human beings turned on the light for me. I committed myself to doing whatever I could to give my family a loving, safe, and healthy home.

One of the first things I did was to make sure that our water was free of any kind of toxins. Sure, the city adds chlorine to the water to kill germs, but who wants to drink chlorine? And the water may be clean when it leaves the treatment plant, but who knows what it might have picked up on the way to the house? Not to mention the ancient plumbing in my house! So I did my research and bought a filter for our drinking water.

From there, my interest in healthy living expanded to areas like using natural non-toxic cleaners, eating clean organic food, and purifying our indoor air.

My kids are all grown now, but I still want my home to be as safe and healthy as possible. I love learning, and I love sharing helpful information with other people. I've found some great products and resources for making healthy homes. I started this website so I can share it with you. We're all in this together!

How I Create Content

All of the articles on this site are planned, written, and edited by me.

I work hard to make sure that everything I publish is accurate and truly helpful to my readers.

My evaluation of products is based on personal experience in many cases, as well lots and lots of research, interaction with manufacturers, and analyzing online customer feedback.

Sometimes manufacturers will send me free product samples to review, but I never receive any kind of payment for writing about them.

So, you can be sure that I’m giving my honest opinion when I write.
