Now more than ever, a clean household is essential for keeping everyone healthy and happy. But as we’re spending much more time at home, finding more natural cleaning products that reduce your exposure to harsh chemicals just makes sense.
No one wants to compromise on performance though, so we’re bringing you some natural cleaning alternatives that still blitz through tough stains, limescale and messes – inevitable when everyone’s knocking about the house! Check out our favourites below – we’re sure they’re going to become yours too.
The kitchen all-rounder
We love a set that does it all, and this impressive selection from Ecozone is no exception. Complete with Washing Machine & Dishwasher Cleaner, Appliance Descaler, Tough Limescale Remover, Drain Cleaning Sticks and Tough Degreaser Kitchen Cleaner Spray, it does the whole kitchen, the bathrooms, plus all your essential appliances and surfaces, ridding them of limescale, build-up, grease and more.
The best part is that all the products boast natural and plant-based ingredients, so you’ve got the best of both worlds. You can sort out the washing machine while the family’s sitting in the kitchen or spritz the kitchen sides without having to worry about sensitive skin – no toxins here!
Power through the washing up
Not many people enjoy washing up, but Tincture washing up liquid might just convert you. Its anti-bacterial formula powers through grease and food, using plant-based, biodegradable ingredients, plus, its free from harsh chemicals, phosphates, SLS, parabens and synthetic fragrances, making it ideal for your skin if you’re not a fan of washing up gloves.
It’s even presented in a fabulous re-usable bottle, hygienically developed with silver technology to keep your carbon footprint on track.
What we love most is that it smells gorgeous, as it’s infused with 100% natural essential oils. It really encapsulates Tincture’s mission to combine cleaning with wellbeing. What’s more, we didn’t know that washing up liquid could actually look chic beside your sink… until now!
The Bin Blitzer
Getting the bins clean and odour-free is one thing nobody wants to compromise on in the name of going natural. Luckily, with this special cleaner from Ecozone, you don’t have to.
It boasts a powerful plant-based, anti-bacterial formula with a refreshing citrus fragrance to banish odours in an instant. We love its easy spray bottle, as you can get the job done in seconds.
Cleaning those clothes
Since clothes sit against your skin all day long, a more natural way to get them clean will be a welcome addition to your routine, especially if you’ve got little ones running around or sensitive skin. Nellie’s All-Natural Laundry Soda packs a powerful punch thanks to its powder formula, so you only need about a tablespoon in each laundry load.
Since it’s ingredients are natural and hypoallergenic, it doesn’t produce irritating soap suds that stay on your clothes after they’re dry. A little goes a long way, so it’s as good for the environment as it is for your skin!
For targeting tough stains
If there’s one thing you need in your cleaning arsenal, it’s a stain remover that you can grab in an instant to treat stubborn spots and marks on your clothes, without having to dump them in the washing machine. Enter Nellie’s Wow Sticks, which really are as amazing as they sound.
They’re activated with water, so they can be kept dry in the cupboard ready to use, and all you have to do is wet the stain and rub the stick over it to lift it away. The secret is a blend of lemongrass and sweet orange, which not only effectively removes unsightly marks but smells great too, so you won’t have to deal with nasty chemical odours or long-standing stains.
Don’t be deceived by its lovely vintage-inspired packaging – this stick busts through tough stains to leave clothes looking spotless, and each one lasts about 23 months when it’s used regularly. And you get three!
After discovering these, we’re ready to go au naturale at home without putting in extra work, and if you love what you see too, check out our entire cleaning range here.
