Ecofriendly cleaning products are quickly becoming popular due to their lack of toxins, support for local communities, and avoidance of animal testing. This article will break down some of the basics of natural cleaning products.
You may think that nothing can compete with your disinfectant wipes, but there are natural all-purpose cleaners that work on granite countertops, tiles floors, wooden cupboards, and more. There’s no ammonia, phosphates, or bleach. It’s totally non-toxic, which is better for you, and has much more natural scents.
When you’re looking for natural cleaners, check to see if they are USDA certified bio-based. This means it’s 96% organic. It works well and is non-toxic for babies and pets.
There are laundry detergents too. They have B corporations that signify a product is better for workers and the community where it’s made, as well as the environment. What’s more, these products avoid animal testing.
Laundry is a great place to start as your clothing is touching your skin. Your skin absorbs all of these chemicals, which can be harmful over the long term. To keep your skin healthy, switch to natural products without toxic chemicals.
You can also make DIY cleaners. Distilled white vinegar has high acidity and can break down buildups of grease, soap scum, and brine. It can clear out cloudy glass and plasticware, and can even unclog your sink when used with hot water.
