Emma Elwin is continuing her home detox, this weekend it was the kitchen's turn.
I am continuing my home detox and this weekend it was time to clean out the kitchen. The first thing I put in the sorting bin was the plastic kitchen tools, like bowls and spatulas. The stick pan I swopped to two old cast iron pots. There are not enough studies when it comes to determining whether the stick pan (teflonpanna in Swedish) is dangerous if used right. Still I feel that any product that have to contain toxics in order to work (in this case perfluorooctanoic acid) has nothing to do in a kitchen. The old cast iron pots are not only prettier that our shiny plastic looking pots, they also add some extra iron to your food. Perfect during pregnancy when you need some extra iron! Another thing I did was to switch our plastic lunch boxes to these metall ones, so far I am super happy with these new boxes and for soup I will just use a glass jar.
