Organic Floor Cleaners

Many of us do not realize how toxic our daily household detergents can be! 

They contain chemicals, harsh preservatives, 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 Floor Cleaners 

Conventional floor detergents contain toxic ingredients and chemicals that are cheap to produce, and 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. 

To keep our house a healthy place, we need to ditch conventional cleaning products and use natural ones! ​
❌ ​Besides many popular brands such as Clorox, Ajax, Lysol, Mr. Clean, Arm & Hammer, Up&Up, and Windex, with products rated F- toxic by, there are many "greenwashing" products around.

Greenwashing Floor Cleaners

❌ 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 as toxic by, with products classified as D and F. ​

❌ Many "natural cleaners" contain controversial ingredients mixed in their almost natural formula such as preservatives, dyes, fragrances, surfactants, bleach, alcohol, quats, hydrogen peroxide, or any other harmful chemicals. 

Methylisothiazolinone:  preservative skin sensitizer, linked to allergies, lung, neurological, and organ toxicity. Plus it is very toxic to aquatic life. Check at the bottom of the page the greenwashing brands.


👉Many of you already know that I don’t recommend

Branch Basics: contains sodium phytate, responsible for damaging the aquatic environment! 

Force of Nature: contains Hypochlorous Acid HOCl, an acid that forms when chlorine dissolves in water, and Sodium Hydroxide NaOH, aka Caustic soda!!

Since there is no government regulation of the words: “organic” or “ natural.” ​We need to buy organic products and to spot them we need to carefully read the labels. That’s why we need to have the right information that allows us to buy a better detergent to protect us, our family, our pets, and the environment.  Use your nose and eyes. Read the ingredients list. Avoid fragranced products and colored liquid products.

To keep our house a healthy place, we need to ditch conventional or greenwashing cleaning products and use natural ones!


Organic Floor Cleaners

Many of you asked me for a safer floor detergent recommendation! Here is a guide for flooring
Right! They are not many natural options on the market, and that’s why I was determined to find the best, non-toxic floor detergents on the market!
👉I collected the approved brands and they are listed on this page. At the bottom of the page, there are the not recommended brands. 

They are a just few natural and organic floor cleaners that are safer, not greenwashing, and transparent. 

Made with natural ingredients, biodegradable, kid-friendly, and pet-friendly. My favorites are packed in eco-friendly bottles such as glass bottles or sugar cane resin which reduces the amount of new petroleum-based plastic being used. ​

❌Not recommended

I don't recommend Branch Basics The Concentrate, because it has a controversial ingredient!

INGREDIENTS: Purified Water, Decyl Glucoside, Chamomile Extract, Coco-Glucoside, Sodium Citrate, Sodium Bicarbonate, Sodium Phytate.

Sodium Phytate in-household cleaners according to  Phosphates in detergent cause lake pollution and eutrophication.
Why do we need to pay $50 for a cheap detergent made with sodium phytate responsible for polluting our lakes??!

I prefer Dr. Bronner's: for only $12 you can use it as personal care and household cleaner including dishwashing, safer ingredients, and no lakes pollution.

Sure it is better than Clorox, but why spend all that money on something that is just ok and also associated with general ecotoxicity concerns by

I wish bloggers out there would make more responsible recommendations.




Not recommended brand: full review here

Force Of NatureI don't recommend this because it has a controversial ingredient!

This is a disinfectant, not a household cleaner since its formulation generates a form of chlorine!!

Even though it is much less than in a conventional bleach it is still chlorine!

In fact, the company states: "Those individually allergic to Chlorine should avoid direct contact as it may cause irritation with symptoms of redness, itching, and swelling."

Even you are not allergic to it, you are still breathing and touching chlorine. I find chlorine to be also not eco-friendly!

Their chlorine is in their Hypochlorous acid (HOCI) and Sodium Hydroxide (aka Caustic soda) that is formed during the electrolysis of vinegar, salt, and water. 

Chlorine and caustic soda sound eco-friendly to you?

Not recommended brand!

For a full Blueland review check here.

Here you can see their three cleaning products. The tables have all these unnatural colors bosted by synthetic colorants.  



synthetic Sodium Benzoate, synthetic potassium sorbate

The fragrance is a mix of natural and synthetic blends, which means a toxic blend, synthetic yellow colorant. 

synthetic Sodium Benzoate 

BATHROOM CLEANER: Sodium Lauryl Sulfate, irritant and polluting, synthetic potassium sorbate, again toxic fragrance and synthetic pink colorant.

WINDOW: synthetic Sodium Benzoate, synthetic potassium sorbate, and blue colorant

❌Not recommended 
Screen Shot 2021-12-11 at 7.18.29 PM.png

I don't recommend Better Life Floor Cleaner because it has harsh preservatives. There are so many safer alternatives that are not necessary to use this brand. 

INGREDIENTS: Purified Water, Lauryl Glucoside (Plant Derived), Decyl Glucoside (Plant Derived), Glycerin (Vegetable), Mentha Piperita (Peppermint) Leaf Extract, Citrus Limon (Lemon) Peel Extract, Mentha Viridis (Spearmint) Extract, Citrus Aurantium Dulcis (Orange) Peel Extract, Citrus Grandis (Grapefruit) Fruit Extract, Elettaria Cardamomum (Cardamom) Seed Extract, Citrus Aurantifolia (Lime) Peel Extract, Citrus Auranitum Bergamia (Bergamot) Fruit Extract, Citrus Tangerina (Tangerine) Extract, Citrus Nobilis (Mandarin Orange) Peel Extract, Methylisothiazolinone (Preservative, less than 0.01%).


Methylisothiazolinone: is a widely-used preservative; it has been associated with allergic reactions. Lab studies on the brain cells of mammals also suggest that methylisothiazolinone may be neurotoxic. NIOSH reports that this substance is a skin irritant. You can learn more here.

Plus it carries California proposition 65 Warning

❌Not recommended

I don't recommend Naturally It's Clean Floor Enzyme Floor Cleaner because it has a controversial ingredient!

INGREDIENTS: Water, Plant-Based Enzyme Blend, Caprylyl/capryl Glucoside (Plant-Based Surfactant), Tetrasodium Iminodisuccinate (Biodegradable Anti-Spotting Agent), Sodium Formate (Natural Stabilizer), Dipropylene Glycol, Benzisothiazolinone, And Sodium Hydroxide (Preservative), Orange Natural Essential Oil Fragrance, Carmine (Natural Colorant).

BenzisothiazolinoneEuropean Union Ecolabel program data shows this substance has very high acute toxicity to aquatic life. The European Union Ecolabel program reports this substance is not anaerobically degradable. 

The US EPA reports benzisothiazolinone is a moderate skin sensitizer.
