Green cleaning products are better for your health, your home and the environment. So it’s time to bid farewell to those toxic cleaning supplies under your kitchen and bathroom sinks in favor of eco-friendly alternatives that are safe, nontoxic and free of harmful chemicals. And it’s also time to ditch disposable cleaning items like sponges, paper towels and Swiffer cloths and replace them with reusable goods. If you’re searching for consciously made cleaning supplies that will safeguard your health and home, here are some of the top supplies you should keep on hand.
Whether you’re a budding chef or a seasoned gourmand, cleaning up after a meal is probably your least favorite part of cooking. But it doesn’t have to be unbearable. After cooking up a storm, make cleanup a breeze by using this scouring pad to clean your pots and pans. Made from environmentally friendly silicone material, the soft dish washing brush won’t hurt your hands or the dish—which makes it a kitchen essential.
You might also want to keep one of these wooden handle pan brush cleaners on hand. Its durable bristles are designed to easily get rid of food and stains, and it’s safe to use on non-stick surfaces. Pair these supplies with an all-natural soap like Puracy’s natural dish soap, a plant-based liquid soap that is non-toxic and chemical-free. And don’t forget to invest in a refill mop replacement head so you can keep your floors looking spick and span.
In addition to a toilet scrubber and mop, you’ll also want to keep all-natural toilet bowl cleaner, glass cleaner and tub and tile cleaner on hand. Using natural, plant-based formulas will make your bathroom sparkle without causing toxic fumes or bringing tears to your eyes.
Multipurpose Surface Cleaner
Cleaning isn’t just about making sure there’s a place for everything. It’s also about making sure that all of your counters, tables, sinks and other surfaces are cleaned regularly with environmentally friendly products. To safeguard against dirt and bacteria, keep a multipurpose surface cleaner on hand at all times.
We’re especially fond of this ready-to-use spray from Ecos, a family-owned company that makes its products from all-natural ingredients. Made from essential oils of oranges, this spray is ideal for non-porous surfaces like hardwood floors, painted walls, vinyl, and stainless steel. It’s also a great grill and oven cleaner. Simply spray some of it onto the surface you want to clean and then use a magic sponge eraser cleaner to make things sparkle in a matter of minutes.
By using these cleaning products, you can make your interiors look new while also protecting your family from unhealthy toxins. And you can reduce waste by investing in durable cleaning items instead of paper towels and other products that need to be thrown away after one use. By following these tips, you can rest assured that you’re starting 2020 off on a good note for your family and for the environment.
