FAQs

How do I switch to natural cleaners?

So, you wanna go green. Congratulations! Swapping your conventional cleaners for plant-based ones is a great way to keep your home clean naturally and help out the earth. If you're worried about completely overhauling your cache of cleaning products, don't worry — there are two super easy places to start going green.

The first is your kitchen. Even a simple swap, like natural dish soap instead of the traditional stuff, is a move in a more eco-friendly direction. The second spot to swap is in your laundry room. Give your old detergent the boot and snag a natural laundry detergent instead. When you're ready to tackle other cleaners, just take a gander at our guide to switching to natural cleaning products for more green cleaning tips.


What’s an all-purpose cleaner?

All-purpose cleaners, aka multi-purpose cleaners, are like the swiss army knife of cleaning products. These hardcore multitaskers can clean a ton of spots in your home with ease. Countertops? Check. The outside of your toilet? Yep! They can even clean the interior of your car, and some all-purpose cleaners will effectively clean glass, windows, and mirrors, too.

That being said, there are a few spots where you shouldn't use multi-purpose cleaners, like wood. Wood surfaces require products specially formulated for wood. Unless your all-purpose spray says it's okay to use on wood, you'd do best to find a natural wood cleaner instead. The same goes for glass and mirrors — while most all-purpose cleaners can be used on these surfaces, some will just leave foggy streaks. Always check the directions on your cleaner before you clean anything you're unsure about.


How do you deep clean a kitchen?

The kitchen is one of the most-used places in your home — and subsequently, one of the dirtiest. While daily maintenance is a great way to keep your surfaces spotless, sometimes you need a little more oomph to get the job done right. That's where a deep clean comes in.

Not to brag, but we're kitchen cleaning experts. We even made an ultimate kitchen cleaning guide that's jam-packed with useful tips, helpful hints, and a slew of natural cleaning products that'll lessen the amount of elbow grease you need to degrease your oven and de-gunk the inside of your fridge. Mark off a Sunday on your calender, save our guide to your phone, and have fun cleaning!
