We’re simplifying the switch to plant— and mineral—based cleaners
A home should be a place of refuge, a place where you and your loved ones feel comfortable, protected, and happy. At the core of this is a sense of safety and security, an environment of peace that comes from knowing that your home is filled with people and products you trust.
With so many under-regulated and misleading household cleaning products on the market, knowing what is safe and what isn’t is overwhelming. But we’re here to reassure you that a sparkling-clean home doesn’t require harsh chemicals. In fact, those chemicals my leave behind residue that is even more harmful that a little soap scum.
Vote with your dollar
Luckily, you don’t have to give up one and live with the other. There is an ever-increasing number of effective cleaning solutions that don’t include toxic ingredients—you just have to be informed about what to look for. A great place to start is by committing to not buy products that include ingredients on a list available online called the Stockholm Convention Dirty Dozen. When you choose to purchase products from companies that make eco-friendly and naturally derived solutions, you’re supporting a world where humans and nature live together in harmony—the way it was meant to be!
Make your own cleaners
Skip label reading altogether and make the cleaning solutions yourself! You can make many easy DIY formulas from ingredients you probably already have in your pantry. DIY cleaning staples include vinegar, baking soda, citrus fruit, borax, and Young Living essential oils.
Switch to Thieves cleaning products
