Organic Versus Other Household Cleaners

If you’re like most people, you’ve been conditioned to think that only chemicals can clean your home to be as spotless as that magazine page, but what you may not have been told is that those same chemicals could also be harming your family, children, or pets.

That’s why we always use the most natural and safe cleaning products when we come to your home.

Here are some of the advantages with the most common household cleaners we’ve found when it comes to using natural or organic cleaning solutions versus the traditional chemical cleaners.

Toilet Bowl Cleaner

A good toilet bowl cleaner needs to be tough on odors and great at getting the grime off of porcelain. The problem with many chemical solutions is that they can damage the surface of the porcelain, which is what leads to irremovable stains in the bowl. By sticking with natural cleaners, we use natural abrasives to scrub your toilet clean and remove any odors, but without scratching the porcelain.

Window Cleaner

A number of cute pictures continue to circle the internet that involves (primarily) children and animals contorting their faces against a window, tongue out. As cute as it is, it can also be dangerous if the window has any cleaner residue remaining. Many commercially-available products contain chemicals that can lead to cancer over time.

That’s why we use an all-natural cleaner that uses vinegar and other naturally-derived products to leave your windows with a streak-free shine.

General Surface Cleaner

When it comes to cleaning general surfaces, finding a natural solution is particularly important to avoid damaging the variety of surfaces you have in your home. Because most surfaces are easily accessible to children and pets, a natural solution will help prevent the accidental ingestion of even small amounts of chemicals that can lead to big problems.

As it turns out, you don’t need harsh chemicals to disinfect your surfaces and keep them clean and safe for your family.

Laundry Detergent

We highly recommend that you choose an eco-friendly laundry detergent for you and your family. Because your clothes are in close contact with your body, using harsh chemical detergents can lead to a number of skin problems that may or may not be traced back to the detergent you’re using.

Fortunately, there are some detergents that not only work as well as chemical detergents for getting your clothes looking and smelling great, they are also ecologically-friendly and typically extremely cost-effective.

Laundry Stain Removers

If you were worried about being able to remove stubborn stains without using chemical cleaning solutions, worry no more. There are several all-natural laundry stain removers on the market that can compete as well as their chemical counterparts but without the dangerous and potentially harmful chemical components.

Liquid Soap

When it comes to washing nearly anything – including your own body – Castile soap is by far the best option. We highly recommend choosing one of the many scented Castile liquid soaps that are available for all of your household needs.

These soaps can be used to wash your hair, your body, surfaces, dishes, or anything else, really! Some people even use them to brush their teeth, so you know you won’t have to worry about Junior using this for syrup like you would most soaps.
