Cleaner Home Products & More

This blog post has been in the making for a few years now! I started working on using cleaner products in the house about two years ago and I finally found some that I love. Every so often I still have to throw a mix of bleach in there (not great) but I'm working on alternatives for that as well (baking soda for white tub/shower). I'm also going to share some household items I've been loving and a few on my shopping list.


When shopping for cleaner products I try REALLY hard to avoid anything with scents. Usually scent is where the toxic chemicals come from, but scent-less can be very hard to find. I have even started trying to use essential oil based candles instead of regular scented candles. I do feel better using plant based/organic/clean products even if they have some scent. Method, 7th Generation, and Simple Truth (Kroger brand, can't link it) are my favorite cleaning supply brands because they work well. For anti-bacterial wipes I like Everspring (Target) and Method. Can't link them because they're literally impossible to find right now, lol. I clean my hard floors with the Swiffer Wet Jet and I save the bottle of cleaner it comes with to then mix water and lemon/thieves/tea tree essential oils and use that once it's empty. Since it's plastic, I only fill it enough for a one time use and then rinse it out. I'm also linking my awesome $20 vacuum that I use on my hard floors and for quick pick ups. It's the best $20 ever spent! I have an option for almost everything- dish soap, bathroom cleaner, window cleaner, laundry detergent, etc. Everything I've linked, I have tried and loved. Sometimes I also mix thieves oil and water for an all purpose cleaner and vinegar/water/lemon oil for glass cleaner. You have to mix these in glass bottles if you're going to use pure essential oils. You can also make essential oil "Febreeze" this way. Lastly, I use microfiber cloths for dusting and sometimes I will use my Method wood cleaner on wood furniture. I like these cloths because you can just wash and reuse and they pick up so much.


I hope this helps you if you're starting on your clean home product journey! I've tried quite a few methods and brands for cleaner products and not all have worked. I'm glad I found products I love so I can stick with keeping a "cleaner" home. Let me know if you have any questions!
