Eco-Friendly Cleaning Products

Everything in moderation. Interacting with harmful chemicals won’t hurt you if its an occasional thing, but if you’re making contact with surfaces covered in dangerous cleaning liquids every day, it can add up to long term health problems. Not to mention, putting these products down the drain can seriously affect the quality of water in your community–using eco-friendly products will keep your neighbors safe as well. In addition to this, you help the environment and save money. Here are some popular products and the better ones you can swap them for.

Swedish Dishcloths

Swap Lysol wipes for Swedish Dishcloths. These ultra-strong and absorbent reusable cloths feel like paper towels, but don’t break down. They can be used with diluted vinegar or another gentle soap then rinsed and allowed to dry.

Amazon, 3 pack Swedish Dishcloths, $14

Bathroom Cleaner Tablets

Swap Scrubbing Bubbles for Blueland’s Bathroom Cleaner Tablets. Drop one of these tablets into a spray bottle or bucket whenever you need to clean–this bulk option saves you a ton of money. The eucalyptus-mint surface cleaner gets rid of grime without the use of bleach. Perfect for porcelains and tile, always under $2. Blueland also offers glass cleaning tablets, dishwasher tabs, hand soap, and multi-surface cleaner.

Set of 9 tablets for $13, Equal to 9 large bottles of bathroom cleaner.

Palm and Wood Scrubbers

Replace your plastic scrubbers with these ones fashioned out of palm and wood. They work better and look better too.

Palm Scrubber, Zero Waste Outlet, $7.98. Comes in many different handles and sizes.

Laundry Paste

Your clothes touch your skin all day, every day. If you have sensitive skin, soaps with chemicals and fragrances can be nightmarish. This laundry paste is made only with baking soda, olive oil, rosemary, yucca powder, and soap nuts. Cut off a small piece to use, or dissolve the whole block in a gallon bucket. Less than 10 cents per load.

Lastly, consider making the switch to reusable Swiffer pads.

You can find reusable pads like this all over Etsy.
