Eco friendly cleaners for your home

by | August 23, 2018

There are innumerable cleaning brands out there that boast things like “clean”, “all-natural”, or eco friendly cleaners so it’s hard to know which products are safe to use and which are not. The most eco-friendly and natural cleaner to use would be a homemade product. I know not everyone is interested in DIY projects but it is extremely easy to make homemade cleaners! Not only do you know the ingredients are safe, you can also help avoid waste by using reusable glass bottles.

To make an all-purpose eco friendly cleaner, I combine water and organic distilled vinegar in a 16 oz glass spray bottle using a 2 to 1 ratio. Then I add 20 drops of lemon essential oil and that is it! It is so easy and you are getting a safe and powerful disinfectant cleanser from the vinegar and essential oil. Other citrus oils (lime, orange, etc) would be a great option too!

If you’re not interested in making your own eco friendly cleaners  but still want to purchase products you can check out some of the following:

Seventh Generation. This brand uses recycled packaging and sustainable sourcing. They have a wide range of eco friendly cleaners and products, from paper towels to glass cleaner to laundry detergent.
