Organic Cleaning Detergents
Many of us do not realize how toxic our daily household detergents can be!
They contain chemicals, irritants, and pollutants that affect not only sensitive individuals, pregnant women, the elderly, pets, children, and wildlife, but all of us, too! Yet, they are sold in regular grocery stores as harmless products.
Conventional detergents contain toxic ingredients and chemicals that are cheap to produce, harsh on us, the planet, and the environment. They are linked with asthma and respiratory damage, skin allergies and irritations, development and reproductive toxicity, posing cancer, and environmental hazards. You can check your current detergent's toxicity rating here at EWG.org
That’s why we need to have the right information that allows us to buy a better detergent to protect us, our family, pets, and the environment. Use your nose and eyes. Read the ingredients list. Avoid fragranced products and colored liquid products.
To be sure that it is really natural, pick a USDA Certified Organic detergent that guarantees it is made with at least 95% organic ingredients, produced in a rigorously eco-friendly way. NO GMOs, pesticides, or toxic ingredients are allowed. A USDA Certified Organic product protects us from conventional toxic brands and at the same time from deceiving greenwashing brands that pretend to be natural, but they are not!

Greenshield Organic All-purpose
🍃💕Organic Holiday cleaning! The Holidays are for friends and family coming over to visit us! To keep our house a healthy place, we need to ditch conventional cleaning products and use natural ones!
🍃💕I only use USDA Certified Organic products, because there is no government regulation of the words: “organic” or “ natural.”
🍃💕Besides many popular brands such as Clorox, Ajax, Lysol, Mr. Clean, Arm & Hammer, Up&Up, Windex, with products rated F- toxic by ewg.org, there are many "greenwashing" products around. Many greenwashing companies are filling their “natural" products with synthetic petrochemical, oleochemical emollients, thickeners, detergents, fragrances, and preservatives.
Brands such as Method, Safeway, Green Works (a Clorox company), Babyganics, and Mrs.Meyer’s are still classified toxic by ewg.org, with products classified D and F.
🍃💕That’s why I choose to buy from companies that are USDA Certified Organic. GreenShield Organic is placed on the podium of winners in the Healthy Cleaning Guide of EWG, their products are rated on the top for safety and transparency. Their Laundry Detergents, Multi-Purpose, Organic Glass Cleaner, Organic Pet Stain & Odor Remover and Organic Baby Collection are USDA Certified Organic, Cruelty-free, Leaping Bunny Certified, Vegan, Gluten-free.
🍃💕Also, they are Biodegradable, and their clear plastic bottles are made by incorporating sugar cane resin which reduces the amount of new petroleum-based plastic being used.
🍃💕These are my choices! What are yours?
Seventh Generation Chlorine-Free Bleach
In this period we keep our house cleaner, disinfected and we wash our laundry more often.
"Conventional Chlorine Bleach" is a disinfectant that’s been around for almost a hundred years, but that aside there are lots of problems with using bleach.
First, it’s not an effective cleaner, so you’ll need to use something else to perform that task. It also comes with very slow contact times (amount of time a surface must stay wet to kill germs). Finally, it is irritating to skin, eyes and breathing it in all day long isn’t great for your lungs.
Hydrogen peroxide is a great disinfectant and great alternative to traditional bleach or alcohol.
I keep it in a spray bottle and spray on many surfaces including kitchen counter, handles, doorknobs, bathroom and cell phones.
No “bleachy” smell, the color-safe formula can be added to every laundry load as a chlorine bleach alternative
Eco-friendly - biodegradable- septic safe. 0% dyes, fragrances, chlorine bleach, phosphates or artificial brighteners
Made for both standard and HE (high efficiency) washing machines
