Your natural Spring cleaning essentials
Switching to chemical-free cleaning is like a breath of fresh air – once you try it, you’ll never go back! Our suggestions below can tackle even the grimiest jobs. We have natural surface cleaners, floor cleaners, glass cleaners, oven cleaners, and even ‘wash yourself’ multi-task cleaners!
If you’re looking for one, does-it-all product, make it this. We can’t do without Dr Bronner’s concentrated Castile Soap, because it cleans pretty much anything! It can be used in 18 different ways – check out our blog about this wonder soap here! - including cleaning. Gentle and effective, use it throughout the home for any surface and floor, then clean yourself up as well, because believe it or not, it’s suitable for hair and body – even the most sensitive skin. Made with organic oils, it’s free from synthetic preservatives, detergents, or foaming agents. Simply choose your favourite natural fragrance and dilute according to use. We love the Unscented variety (and you do too – every review is 5/5!), just add essential oils for a custom cleaning and aromatherapy session in one!
One of the worst things about oven cleaning is the chemicals that cloud your home! Well, not anymore! Cinderella Oven & BBQ Cleaner is an Aussie-made oven cleaner that cuts through grease without relying on irritants like petroleum distillates, ammonia, or phosphates. And it smells like passionfruit!
This 100% natural, use-anywhere-and-everywhere cleaner uses a clever combination of antifungal and antibacterial concentrated extracts, including Witch Hazel Bark and Lemon Aspen, to help keep all your surfaces clean and germ-free. Use it on cooktops, benchtops, stainless steel, and more.
Safe to use on any surface including wood floors, Koala Eco Mandarin & Peppermint Floor Cleaner is a powerful plant-based antibacterial formula made with Australian essential oils, that freshens and cleans your floors naturally. These products are grey water safe too, so cleaner for you and the environment.
Mould removers are known for their ferocious fumes, but Abode’s naturally derived and bleach-free Mould Control Spray gets rid of mould without any chemicals, making it safe to use around the whole family, even those with sensitive skin and chemical allergies. As it’s bleach-free it doesn’t just mask and whiten the mould, it kills the mould spores which can affect our health! Use it in bathrooms, kitchens, or anywhere that mould thrives. And remember - if you are still getting ongoing mould, it’s best to speak to a trade professional to find and eliminate the cause.
This all-natural glass cleaner boasts a beautiful blend of essential oils including Lemongrass, Camphor, and Blue Gum Eucalyptus, combined with white vinegar. The result is a streak-free, fragranced finish which is also antiseptic, antifungal, and antibacterial. Squeaky clean without toxic fumes, we are loving this product!
And to wipe it all down…
Go natural with your cleaning cloths, too! Don’t forget to add these to your kit!
These soft and super absorbent sponges are made from plant-based cellulose – which is a great, eco-friendly alternative to regular cleaning sponges! No micro plastics here just plant based materials that wont sit in landfill or pollute our oceans.
Swap single use paper towels for these colourful reusable beauties! You get 12 100% and biodegradable cotton cloths on a roll, just like traditional paper towels, which are perfect for any cleaning journey. These unpaper rolls by Bare & Co. are plastic free, absorbent and when you’re done cleaning with them, simply wash, line dry, and reuse! No waste, which is what we love.
