One way to truly have a green home is to incorporate eco-friendly cleaning tools and products into your everyday life and routine.
A common misconception about eco-friendly products is they don’t work as well as mainstream products and that couldn’t be further from the truth!
Below are 5 eco-friendly cleaning tools that will get you started creating your sustainable home. Once you try these your home will be cleaner and greener.
Hate cleaning the bathroom like most people? I’m with you.
My life changed once I started wearing rubber gloves while cleaning the bathroom.
I suddenly didn’t mind cleaning the toilet or sink because I knew my hands weren’t getting down and dirty.
These If You Care household cleaning gloves are made from fair trade certified natural rubber and are made of 100% renewable resources.
Wash these gloves with soap and water when you’re finished using them each time.
Hang them to dry and they’ll be ready to use the next time you have a dirty job.
Have you fallen in love with Swedish dishcloths yet?
They’re an amazing dishcloth made from cellulose and cotton that are stiff when dry and soft like a washcloth when wet.
These dishtowels are perfect for washing dishes and household cleaning tasks like scrubbing showers and bathtubs. And they’re so gorgeous!
Toss them in the dishwasher or washing machine when they’re ready to be cleaned and lay flat to dry.
Eventually, the dishcloth will break down and you can add it to your backyard compost pile.
They come in tons of different colors and patterns so I’m confident you’ll find the perfect set for your home.
What’s better than a clean shower and bathtub?
If you want to stop buying most commercial cleaners, then you need Castile soap ASAP.
Castile soap is biodegradable, made with plant-based ingredients, and completely all-natural.
You’ll find endless ways to use it but here are a few ways I suggest: wash your body, hair, food, dishes, laundry, floors, pets.
Many DIY cleaning recipes call for Castile soap and once you start using it you won’t want to stop.
I suggest the unscented version for cleaning and almond for washing your hair and body.
Once you start making DIY cleaners you’ll need reliable spray bottles to store them in.
I’m in love with these glass amber spray bottles because they’re gorgeous and have held up for years in my home.
One of my favorite parts of using glass bottles for cleaning solutions is the bottles don’t stain or hold onto smells.
For a while, I was refilling old plastic bottles with DIY cleaning solutions but the smell from the previous recipe always lingered. I no longer have that problem so I highly recommend these.
I make a basic DIY window/mirror cleaner for these bottles. Mix 1 part vinegar and 1 part water in a spray bottle and shake. Spray the solution on windows and mirrors and wipe away with a dry towel to prevent streaking.
What are cloth diapers designed to do? Absorb and keep babies dry and comfortable.
And that’s why these affordable cloth diapers work so well for cleaning around the house.
These cloth diapers are lightweight, absorbent, and not cute – so you will not mind using them for extra dirty jobs.
Save your nice towels for displaying or as kitchen napkins and clean with these cloth diapers.
Use them to clean the bathroom, kitchen, or mop the floors.
The cloth diapers are very thin so you can pack them in a diaper bag easily for on the go messes.
