Just as effective as non-eco cleaners, they’ll leave your home sparkling without the environmental impact. We stock heaps of these amazing products and we can tell you now: they’re flying off the shelves. Here’s a list of our very best ecological cleaning products for a super-green spring clean.
The Delphis Range
If you’ve not heard of Delphis yet, you’re missing out. These incredible cleaners boast industrial strength and a bucketload of eco credentials. The ingredients are all natural and cruelty-free, they come in bottles made from 100% recycled plastic sourced from UK shores to reduce emissions… they even hold two royal warrants. Check out our blog to find out more about this amazing brand and why all the eco professionals - and the royals - love it!
These top eco cleaning products are cruelty-free, vegan, hypoallergenic and an Ethical Consumer best buy. Their bottles are also made from 100% post-consumer waste bottles, so you can buy safe in the knowledge that you’re not adding to the vast quantities of virgin plastic that are produced worldwide.
Ecover cleans up without leaving a trail of toxins in its wake. These products are made using plant-based and mineral ingredients with no nasty chemicals, meaning they’re kinder on your hands as well as the environment. The Ecover Zero range is ideal for those with allergies as they contain 0% fragrance and colouring - perfect for sensitive skin. The laundry detergent is ideal for babies’ skin too.
For Delphis, Bio-D and Ecover we stock refills in large 5L containers, so you can cut down on your plastic usage even more. Why not try buying one of these and pouring it into a smaller bottle whenever you need a top-up?
The Method Range
Whether you’re after an anti-bac all purpose cleaner, toilet cleaner or even a hand wash, Method’s natural cleaning products are a great shout. This green brand offers all sorts of heavenly-smelling products that are non-toxic, biodegradable and even assessed by independent scientists to ensure environmentally friendly quality and safety for people. Plus, their bottles are made from 100% recycled plastic, meaning a lot less waste ending up in the oceans and a lot less energy used to create virgin plastic. With plastic breaking down into micro particles and entering the food chain*, Method’s recycled bottles are great news for the planet.
Not only has this traditional, trusted cleaning product been used successfully for decades, but it’s highly versatile too. Use it for cleaning glass and mirrors, removing limescale build-up, adding to washing machine cycles and so much more for a whole-home clean. It now even comes in a recycled plastic bottle made from post-consumer waste.
Known for its abrasive and deodorising properties, bicarbonate of soda has been used for over a century to clean, scour, deodorise and even soften water. In fact, there’s almost nothing it can’t do. It can be used as a carpet freshener, oven cleaner, sterling silver jewellery polish, surface cleaner… all sorts. And it’s extra-powerful when combined with white vinegar – simply sprinkle the bicarb onto your surface, spray on some vinegar which will make it fizz, and then wipe it off with a cloth after 30 seconds or so. It also gains eco points for being packed in 100% recycled cardboard!
These versatile little gems are naturally occurring and biodegradable, and can be used to do all kinds of jobs, from deodorising the washing machine to removing moss and algae from the patio. They also soften water so you can save money on expensive detergent when doing the laundry, which is ideal for hard water areas like the south of England.
Replace your standard laundry detergent with this natural alternative that requires no powder, liquid, tablets of gels. Filled with two mineral pellets that last for up to 70 washes, it creates a powerful cleaning foam to lift dirt and grime from all your clothes whilst still being great for sensitive skin. Plus, because you won’t have to buy expensive detergents, you’ll save money while helping the environment.
Made from pure soap with no additives, fragrances or palm oil, these liquid soap flakes are an easy way to clean clothes, fabrics and more. Use them in your laundry to clean delicate fabrics or around the home to clean furniture, floors and surfaces.
Keep your drains free-flowing and clean-smelling using without the need for harsh chemical drain unblockers. These sticks use powerful natural bacteria and enzymes to break down grease, fat and food blockages, helping to remove bad odours from kitchen and bathroom drains. They keep working continuously to help prevent blockages and each stick lasts approximately one month. This pack includes 12 sticks which is enough to keep your drains clear for up to one year.
This effective descaler is made from natural ingredients for fast and effective cleaning with a low impact on the environment. The natural formula makes this eco cleaning product biodegradable and phosphate-free, making it suitable for a multitude of uses, including kettles, irons, shower heads and more.
