Open up your windows and shake out your rugs, because it’s time for the (dreaded and beloved) fresh start that is spring cleaning—and that doesn’t mean covering your home in noxious chemical cleaners. These eco-friendly natural cleaning products will leave your home sparkling without the harsh smell.
1) Better Life All-Purpose Cleaner
From wiping down counters to cleaning up carpet spills, this natural all-purpose cleaner from Better Life gets the job done. It’s safe for all surfaces (including fabrics), and is free of synthetic fragrances, parabens, alcohol, dyes, sodium lauryl, and other irritants.
2) Seventh Generation Toilet Bowl Cleaner
Toilet bowl cleaners don’t have to come with a harsh chemical smell. This biodegradable plant based formula from Seventh Generation contains no chlorine, synthetic fragrances, or dyes—but it’s still tough on hard water and stains. This cleaner is also septic safe and cruelty free.
3) Bac-Out Stain and Odor Remover
For those serious wine stains and pet accidents, Biokleen makes a greener cleaner that eradicates stain and odor. The enzyme blend contains no chlorine, ammonia, butyl, glycol, or pollutants—but this full-strength blend still saves your carpet and laundry.
4) Caldrea Dish Soap
Caldrea makes a natural, biodegradable dish soap in so many exciting scents that you might actually look forward to doing dishes. Sea salt neroli is almost spa-like. Partial to basil and blue sage? They’ve got a soap for that.
5) Skoy Cleaning Cloth
If you find yourself going through rolls and rolls of paper towels, try a Skoy cleaning cloth instead. One biodegradable reusable cloth replaces 15 rolls of paper towels. That’s a whole lot of paper waste and money saved.
