With spring in full swing, a lot of us are thinking about (dreading) that annual deep clean of our homes.
I don’t know about you, but I LOVE the feeling after a good deep clean. There’s something about a beautiful clean home with everything in its rightful place that makes me feel zen.
But before you get started, let’s think about the plethora of products we have stored under the sink… Just the amount of plastic alone makes me anxious let alone all the toxic chemicals in each.
It’s time to not only spring clean your home but to really rethink our daily cleaning habits. Do we really need those 7 different spray bottles for each room in the house?
It is time to ditch all of your old household cleaning products that are packaged in plastic and opt for more sustainable options.
To make life a little easier for you, here is a round up of our favourite brands to help you make the switch today.
THE DESIGNER CLEANING SET
BRAND: Cove Cleaning
Life in the 21st century is all about convenience and with convenience comes single use products.
Cove cleaning inspires us to make a change toward sustainable cleaning through their uber-chic designs. Who wouldn’t want a set of these under their kitchen sink?
These highly concentrated formulas are beautifully packaged and designed to reduce waste. Each refill package can also be recycled at your nearest REDcycle drop off location.
HOW TO USE: other than the laundry liquid, just add water to the brim of the container after refilling with the concentrated formula.
You’ll love the beautiful fresh clean scents each of the solutions offer. My favourite has by far been the Eucalyptus Surface Spray. Oh, and did I mention it’s natural?
THE ONE PRODUCT FOR ALL CLEANER
If you’re brave enough to make the ultimate switch to using just one product for all your surfaces, then this is for you.
Koh Universal Cleaner is one powerful cleaning solution that does the job of twenty products combined.
Formulated alongside scientists at the University of New South Wales, Koh Universal Cleaner is free from harsh chemicals, fragrances, phosphates, and parabens. It’s allergy-friendly and recommended by the National Asthma Council Australia’s Sensitive Choice™ program.
Koh Universal Cleaner is eco-certified by Good Environmental Choice Australia (GECA) and approved by Cruelty-Free International.
THE CLEANER THAT ALSO CLEANS OUR PLANET
BRAND: Zero Co
It’s really as simple as 1, 2, 3… with Zero Co.
Waging a war on zero waste, Zero Co has designed and created dispensers from plastic waste collected from the ocean, while the refill pouches are designed and created from plastic waste from landfill.
Every refill pouch is refilled and reused over and over again. How? Your package comes with a reply paid satchel to send back.
THE PURE AND POWERFUL LAUNDRY DETERGENT
One product for clothes, sheets, towels and even whites.
The Dirt Company’s laundry detergent is 8x more concentrated cutting the amount of packaging by half, swapping plastic for aluminium packaging and the refill packaging can also be returned to be reused and refilled.
For a zero-waste laundry detergent that is free of chemicals with natural ingredients that are better for our planet, Dirt is your answer.
