6 Natural Cleaners That You Need To Try

Are you looking for safe natural cleaners to clean your home? Keep reading to discover some cleaners that are made with natural ingredients and are safe to use around children and pets.

 My health matters to me as well as the health of my family. Having a clean home is important to me as a dirty home may be filled with germs or other dangerous things like mold. As I clean my home, I am careful in what I use to clean my home. I will only use safe non-toxic cleaners in my home.

 While you may think it is okay to clean your home with common cleaners like bleach or common disinfectants, it really is not as those cleaners have ingredients that may be affecting your health. I have asthma and I immediately react to chemical cleaners with coughing. Just walking past the cleaning aisle in the store or being near a cashier spraying the convoy belt sets me into an asthma attack. 

Everyone is affected by chemical cleaners and chemical fragrances

 Everyone is affected by chemical cleaners and chemical fragrances, some just have noticeable symptoms. You may say that those toxic cleaners don't affect me. While you may not react when breathing in those chemicals, they are going into your lungs and body. Your body may be reacting in other ways that don't produce noticeable symptoms like asthma or headaches. Those gut problems may be related to chemicals. If you breathe in the chemicals they can get to your gut through swallowing as your sinuses are connected to your throat. 

Don't get me started on people who wear perfume!

 My lungs are ultra-sensitive and most cleaners affect my respiratory system making it hard for me to breathe. I can't even be near people wearing perfume. Common household cleaners are loaded with chemical crap fragrances that linger in the air and breathing those fragrances affect your lungs. While you think that your allergies are caused by plants, the cause may also be chemical fragrances. Check out this article Do You Know What Is In Your Perfume?

Ready to use safer natural cleaners?

 You may be reading this article as you already use cleaners made from safe ingredients or you want to start cleaning with natural cleaners in your home. You may not even have a clue about the dangers of using chemical cleaners. The reason does not matter to me. I just want to share some amazing natural cleaners that I have discovered. Some of these cleaners, I have been using for years and others are new to me.

1. Dr. Bronner’s Liquid Castile Soap

 I love using this 18-in-1 pure castile soap for my hand soap. This soap is concentrated, versatile, and effective at cleaning. The castile soap is Made with organic and certified fair trade ingredients. You will love all the 7 different scents that this soap comes in. The best part is the soap fragrance is scented with organic essential oils. If you don't prefer scent they also make an unscented version. 

 What I love most about this natural soap is that one 16-ounce bottle of Dr. Bronner’s Liquid Castile Soap makes 8 containers of hand soap. You simply use the concentrated soap and add it to water. While I only use this castile soap for hand soap, this product can be used for 18 different uses from laundry soap to even toothpaste.

2. Gear Hugger’s Heavy-Duty Degreaser

 Most degreasers are made with toxic ingredients that harm the environment. Gear Hugger Heavy-Duty Degreaser is a water-based, plant-powered, non-toxic solution that is made from upcycle waste from the production of tequila. This degreaser is easy to use, fast-acting, and safe for people, pets, and the planet. 

This degreaser is non-flammable and free of petroleum, fossil fuels, and VOCs. You will love how Gear Hugger eliminates grease, grime, and dirt with a shiny finish with no residue. This degreaser cleans gears like bike chains, car parts, and more.

3. ProofPlus™ Pet Stain & Odor Remover

 If you have pets or young kids, you need to check out this stain and odor remover. Kids and pets make messes with their bodies. From wetting the bed to peeing on the carpet and getting sick in bed, these guys have a bad aim when it comes to bodily fluids. Their messes leave behind bad odors and stains that can be tough to remove.

 ProofPlus Pet Stain & Odor Remover cleans even the toughest dried-on and foul-smelling stains by attacking the source of the smell. This powerful formulation uses 10X Enzymatic Technology to kill odors and it provides effective stain removal when your pet makes things unexpectedly messy. This PFAS-free & non-toxic safe spray can be used on many surfaces ~ hardwood flooring ~ laminate flooring ~ carpets & rugs ~ tile ~ upholstery ~ fabric car interiors ~ & more.

4. Dr. Bronner's Sal Suds Liquid Cleaner

 I recently discovered Dr. Bronner's Sal Suds Liquid Cleaner and I am still learning about all the many ways that I can use this natural cleaner. I got a few samples of this household cleaner from Expo East.

Dr. Bronner's Sal Suds Liquid Cleaner is not a soap but instead is a concentrated hard-surface all-purpose cleaner. Like their castile soap, this cleaner has many uses. It is made with plant-based surfactants, natural fir needles, and spruce essential oils. It is also made without any synthetic dyes or fragrances. The Sal Suds is perfect for general household cleaning (dishes, floors, laundry, etc.), and it cleans and rinses with exceptional power, yet it is mild and gentle on the skin. Sal Suds Liquid Cleaner is equally effective in hard or soft water. I love using the Sal Suds in my laundry and it does a great job of tackling smelly odors.

5. ElectriFresh Odor Eliminator

 ElectriFresh Odor Eliminator is a unique product. This odor eliminator breaks the mold of mediocre cleaning products with innovative technology using shelf-stable Electrolyzed Water, which is Water x Salt x Electricity. These natural compounds created are Hypochlorous Acid & Sodium Hydroxide and they do a great job of eliminating odors.

 I was excited to see if this product could tackle bad odors in my home. So I sprayed the ElectriFresh Odor Eliminator into my son's stinky shoes. I was amazed that this electrolyzed water took away the stinky foot smell. This spray does not cover up the odor with chemical fragrances made with harsh chemicals. You can use the spray everywhere. From garbage cans, cat litter boxes, and furniture to bathrooms, cars, and more. Just spray it into the air or on the smelly surface.

6. Force of Nature

 If you are concerned about your family's health then ingredients matter when cleaning your home. You don't have to use those harsh cleaners to disinfect and sanitize your home. Say hello to Force Of Nature ~ the little appliance that uses electricity to convert tap water, plus a capsule of salt, water & vinegar, into a does-it-all cleaning powerhouse. 

 Force of Nature makes a powerful cleaner that kills 99.9% of germs and is an EPA-registered disinfectant. This environmentally safe cleaner is a sustainable swap that’s powerful enough to replace bleach, kitchen, glass, bathroom cleaners, deodorizers, and disinfectants. So you can toss all those bottles of scary chemicals. Force of Nature is proven to be just as effective as those toxic cleaning products. Force of Nature cleans grease, grime, mold, mildew, sticky messes, and soap scum,

I use vinegar to clean with especially hard water problems. I recently put it in my counter top ice maker to clean out the build up. It helped a ton.
