Spring Clean With These Sustainable, All Natural Household Cleaning Products
How clean are your cleaning products?
Spring has officially sprung, and it has many of us gearing up for an annual deep clean. While the aftermath of a good household clean is always good for the soul, it’s not always great for your health or for the environment. Conventional cleaning products often contain toxic chemicals associated with skin and respiratory irritation, and other health issues. Plus, the majority are packaged in single use plastics, which aren’t doing the environment any favours.
To make your transition towards a more sustainable home easier, we’ve rounded up our favourite natural, eco-friendly cleaning products. From chic packaging to beautiful botanical scents, these products make cleaning cool again.
1. Cove Cleaning
Prioritising sustainability, Cove Cleaning encourages consumers to rethink how we use products. Rather than packaging with single use in mind, Cove Cleaning products come in refillable aluminium bottles that are designed to be kept forever. After your first purchase, you can stock up on refillable pouches; a system designed to reduce wastage. The formulas themselves are vegan and non-toxic, featuring fresh, natural scents like mint, lemon, and eucalyptus.
Developed in collaboration with an organic chemist, Koala Eco products harness the power of native Australian botanicals to rid your spaces of germs and bacteria.

Combining fragrance with science, Bondi Wash uses Australian botanicals and other essential oils to create effective products that are safe for your household and the environment. With scents like Tasmanian pepper, lavender, lemon tea tree, and mandarin, the scents emanating from Bondi Wash’s range make the cleaning process enjoyable.
If you’re game enough to simplify the cleaning process altogether, Dr. Bronner’s Sal Suds Liquid Cleaner makes the case for switching to just one product.

Popular American homeware brand Williams Sonoma makes biodegradable, environmentally-friendly kitchen and surface cleaning formulas free from parabens, chlorine, and other toxic chemicals.
