FAQs

Do natural cleaning products work?

The answer to this question really depends on how you define “work.” Natural cleaning products do work as they do the job they’re designed to do — they remove dirt, grime, and dust from areas you’re using them to clean. Natural home cleaning products like bathroom cleaners and kitchen cleaning supplies, however, usually don’t disinfect (which means kill 99.9% of germs within 10 minutes of applying) unless it’s stated on the bottle or in the product description for an item.


If you’re specifically looking for natural household cleaning products that kill 99.9% of bacteria, germs, and viruses, then you’re going to need to hunt out those natural cleaning products that are also a disinfectant like this Grove Co. All-Purpose Disinfectant Cleaner. Those types of cleaners will tackle both the dirt and dust but also the bacteria and germs that hang around, too.


How do you clean toilet stains?

There’s nothing worse than a stained toilet when guests arrive at your house — it’s pretty gross but also embarrassing, too. If you need a quick fix for getting rid of stains on your toilet, follow our lead:


  1. Start by sprinkling either baking soda or Borax on the stained porcelain in your potty — there’s no need to use both so just pick your preference
  2. Spread the powder around using your toilet brush
  3. Then, use your toilet brush and a little elbow grease to scrub the stained spot
  4. Measure out one and a half cups of white vinegar and pour it into your toilet
  5. Leave your toilet alone to soak up these products for up to 30 minutes (You can grab a book to read or listen to a short podcast while you wait)
  6. Use a cup and your toilet brush to rinse the stained area and your toilet
  7. Your stains should be gone, but if they’re still there, you’ll want to repeat the steps above to get rid of those pesky, persistent stains

Are natural cleaning products safe to use around pets?

Yes, in fact, we highly recommend ditching the toxic, chemical-filled household cleaning products when it comes to cleaning a home with kids or pets in it. These harsh ingredients can harm those you love most. Instead, opt for household cleaning supplies made from biodegradable, plant-based ingredients. These types of natural cleaning products are specifically made with people and the planet in mind, and not only are they nontoxic and healthy for your home, but most of them are also sustainably made for an eco-friendly pick.


What happens if you pick household cleaning products with chemicals in them? Well, a lot can happen even if you don’t notice it for some time. Chemical-filled cleaning products automatically let out harmful chemicals into the environment and can hurt the people, animals, and environment where they’re being used. The Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) claims that phosphorous, nitrogen, and ammonia are among the worst and most harmful chemicals found in household cleaning products today.
