Organic Glass & Window
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
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, Windex, with products rated F- toxic by ewg.org, there are many "greenwashing" products around.
❌ 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 ewg.org, with products classified D and F.
🍃That’s why I choose to buy from safer, more responsible, and transparent companies that are
USDA Certified Organic, better for us and the planet. 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.
Since there is no government regulation of the words: “organic” or “ natural.” I only use USDA Certified Organic products.
They are a few natural brands, even if they are not certified, they are safer and transparent in their ingredients list and they meet my criteria I approve of them. They are all listed on this page.
recommend also a few not certified brands that meet my safety criteria.
💕These are my choices!
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!

Miessence Household Cleaning
🍃BioPure is a highly concentrated, all-natural household and industrial cleaner containing powerful probiotic bacteria, antioxidants, and enzymes that break down grease, grime, and dirt and neutralize odors.
🍃 BioPure means cleaning without chemicals and its living benefits continue to work even after the initial application.
The probiotic properties of BioPure ensure it is eminently safe for humans and the environment, and uniquely effective as a surface-active agent to ionize and digest organic matter for surface cleaning and odor reduction. Can be used safely in septic systems and is fully biodegradable.
🍃 BioPure can be used as a general-purpose household cleaner, for floors, kitchen surfaces, mold and mildew areas, and bathrooms. BioPure is a probiotic cleaning liquid and works differently from anti-bacterial products, which attempt to kill bad bacteria. BioPure utilizes beneficial bacteria to regenerate and repopulate with healthy bacteria so they can dominate harmful, disease-causing (pathogenic) bacteria. This creates a natural, healthy and clean environment. When used consistently, BioPure prevents the re-emergence of pathogenic bacteria.
INGREDIENTS: aqua (purified water), certified organic molasses, naturally occurring probiotic bacteria and symbiotic yeasts, organic mineral powder, sea salt, certified organic oryza sativa (rice) bran extract, certified organic vanilla planifolia (vanilla) fruit extract
