Things I’m loving this week… Natural Cleaning Products
I love to use natural products wherever I can. This also translates to my cleaning products too. Natural products go way beyond beauty and personal care. I’d love to share and maybe introduce to you some of my favourite products and brands!
You would be fooled into thinking that bleach is the safest and most sterile, but there’s a reason for that stench! There’s an ugly truth to why it smells that way and it’s not good! Bleach is full of the most harmful ingredients…and yes it gets out stains and cleans your toilet but actually it’s full of chemicals and corrosive ingredients.
The most important things to avoid in modern cleaning products are fragrance, parabens, sodium laureth sulfate, formaldehyde and phthalates. These ingredients are full of nasties that are damaging for your body and have been known to lead to certain cancers so it’s definitely worth investing in some nice natural products.
Don’t forget sometimes the best cleaning products are also homemade but for those of you who simply just don’t have the time (admittedly me) here’s a whole host of natural cleaning products, good for the environment and good for you!
I love Ecover and it’s really easy to source, the products are stocked in a lot of health food stores and online. My kitchen and laundry room are full of their products, they’re fab and really work.
In addition to the kitchen cleaners I love using Ecover’s laundry liquid it makes my clothes smell delicious, and really gets out some stains!
Method produces several types of natural cleaners, each made with biodegradable, non-toxic, and naturally-derived substances. They’re fab and really get off that grime.
This hand soap is gorgeous, for the amount of times we wash our hands it’s so important to have a natural cleanser to make sure we’re not giving our bodies a load of chemicals through our skin.
Great for babies! This high chair cleaner is such a great idea as we all know just how dirty and covered in food they get.
This drain cleaner is such a necessity. I spend a lot of time cooking so I get lots of food down the sink and then I end up with water everywhere, which takes ageeees to go down. Well that disappears with this lovely product!
Attitude is another great brand to know about. All the products are free from toxins and super safe to use. They specialise in baby and pet care which are great for your poochy friends!
Another great addition to the things I’m loving this week is this furniture cleaner – I love it! I have a great big wooden table and benches at home and this polish gets it looking spick and span in no time – it’s is great for unfurnished and furnished wood.
Ironing,..I find a lot of people either love it and relax doing it, or completely dread it and often leave their clothes a little creased!
I’m not sure about you but I get through a lot of cloths from scrubbing away! I love these natural cloths I feel like I’m doing the environment no harm! These cloths are non-GMO, unbleached cotton and mirabilite.
If you love your wooden floor to be shiny, then you’ll love this floor cleaner! It’s designed especially for wooden floors which means it won’t cause any staining, or damage to those gorgeous floorboards.
A cleaner dishwasher does indeed mean cleaner dishes! There’s nothing better than a shiny dishwasher and this all-natural dishwasher cleaner is just great for that!
