Making the switch to more eco-friendly and natural cleaning products can feel confusing and daunting when there are so many options out there to choose from. However, living greener doesn’t have to happen all at once. Making small changes product by product can help you slowly make the change to a greener home.
Luckily we’re here to make your life a little easier with some top things to look out for when making your choices to live in a cleaner and safer space.
Read The Ingredients Found In Cleaning Products
An essential element that makes a cleaning product a natural cleaning product is its ingredients. A red flag for any ‘natural’ cleaning product would be to find ingredients that you do not recognise or cannot even pronounce. What makes a cleaning product natural is more what isn’t found in the ingredient list than what is found. Bleach or ammonia are ingredients you don’t want to find in a natural cleaner.
Instead, look for ingredients that are naturally derived, non-toxic and safe. Ingredients that will still keep your space sanitised and clean but are greener include citric acid, lactic acid and peroxide. These ingredients won’t harm the environment or your body.
Take Note Of The Packaging
Using more natural cleaning products is a great start at creating a greener home. When buying greener products, you also want to find more environmentally-friendly packaging. This includes being able to reuse your storage containers again and again.
How Effective Are They At Cleaning?
The natural cleaning products you choose need to have natural ingredients and be less toxic to the environment, but they still need to be effective at cleaning and sanitising your space. This means cutting through grease, dirt, grime, germs and neutralising foul odours. The products you choose need to be able to remove harmful microorganisms found around your home, including your bathrooms, kitchens and waste bins.
