Can you clean without your house without using all those harmful chemicals?
The answer is always YES!
But how can you make everything sparkle and clear of nasty bacteria without using all those anti-bacteria products?
It is easier than you think. There are some amazing products that have been formulated to achieve the same result as the chemically loaded ones, but these do not have any of the harmful ingredients in them.
A Clean Kitchen
The Kitchen is often the place that has multiple chemical based products, as you use your dishwashing liquid to wash dishes, powder for the dishwasher, surface sprays to clean up from meal prep, stainless steel for appliances. And if you are like me you might have glass cleaner, bbq cleaner and a few others as well.
Here are some amazing products for you to use in the kitchen without all the nasty chemicals:
1. Washing Dishes
KinKin Naturals dishwashing liquid and their dishwashing powder are some of my favourites. Made in Queensland using all safe ingredients they actually work a treat and leave your dishes clean and sparkling. The liquid makes a good lather so you still feel like you dishes are clean.
This is followed by Abode Products
Abode dishwashing liquid is another favourite and comes in a variety of fragrances. Abode has been created by Australian building biologist, naturopath and healthy home expert Nicole Bijlsma. So she really knows her stuff.
2. Surface Sprays
Abode also do a great range of surface sprays and again with a variety of fragrances.
Simply Clean are another great Australian Made company that have produced a wide range of home care cleaning products that are completely non-toxic and as gentle as possible on human health and the environment. Their lemon myrtle products are some of the fastest moving and they smell great.
While not exactly a spray I have to mention this bi-carb paste, it is the best. Not only does it smell great but it works wonders on my benchtop. Founder Kim, wanted a way to rid her home of harmful chemicals and found that going back to basics was actually the way forward.
This is another area that is easy to swap but often takes a bit of convincing as people often have very particular products that they like to use. And to be honest I have tried a lot of different products myself. But one of my favourites is the following:
Simply Clean Laundry powder is the one most often used in my laundry. I love the lemon myrtle smell and this acts as an anti-bacteria killing off any germs. But it also gets your clothes clean. A great option that offers different sizes as we carry the 1kg, 1.75kg or 4kg. If you would like a bigger option then let me know. The do bulk range up to 15kg.
If you prefer a liquid to a powder then this is my favourite
Abode Blue Mallee Eucalyptus Laundry liquid is one of my favourite smells but the Lavender and Mint is also a hit. These are some of our most popular sellers. And they do a wonderful job at cleaning your clothes.
If you need a soaker, my favourite is this one
Kin Kin Naturals soaker has been great over the Christmas time as I soaked all my white linen tableclothes to remove red wine and fruit stains. I also just add it into my whites and I soak many a bath mat in it to remove the smell of cat urine! My cat has taken to peeing on the bathmat that a said male always forgets to hang back up!
So you can see there are plenty of options for cleaning without the use of harmful chemicals. There is a vast range is vast and the cost is very reasonable if not comparable to some of you cheap chemical brands, so give it a try, you won't be disappointed and neither will your body.
Are harmful chemicals hiding in your Laundry??
