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. Many of the natural alternatives to big name conventional brands work just as well as their counterparts, tackling dirt, grime, and grease with equal effectiveness.

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 Seventh Generation Disinfecting Bathroom Cleaner. Those types of cleaners will tackle both the dirt and dust but also the bacteria and germs that hang around, too.


Are natural cleaning products safe to use around pets?

Most natural cleaning products are healthy for homes with kids or pets in them, but we recommend researching ingredient lists to make sure your products are actually natural and not just victim to greenwashing. Opt for household cleaning supplies made from biodegradable, plant-based ingredients, from companies with the statistics and certifications to back up their claims.
