From food, water, and kitchen goods, to personal care and cleaning products- even clothing and common household items like phones and childrens' toys- Detox Your Home takes a deep dive into the products we use on a daily basis, to expose the harmful toxins lurking in our most intimate, everyday environments.

Industrialization has created a world that puts products before human and environmental health. Our resources are depleting along with our health. Dimmick takes a deep dive into the toxins found in our very own homes, and shows how you can limit your exposure and take control of your own health. From clothing to food to the cleaning products we use every day, she shows how you can avoid exposing yourself and your family to the hidden toxins and improve every part of your life.
