Organic Glass & Window Cleaner

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.

The majority of cleaning products you will find at conventional grocery stores or online are chemically based and have strong artificial scents and harsh ingredients.🙊 They are mainly chemicals and even their bright colors look so unnatural.🙈

🌎As an environmentalist, to me is important that the cleaning products I use are made respecting nature, animals, and are made with eco-friendly ingredients.

Conventional Cleaners 

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  EWG.org ratings

To keep our house a healthy place, we need to ditch conventional cleaning products and use natural ones! ​
❌ ​Besides many popular brands such as CloroxAjaxLysolMr. CleanArm & HammerUp&UpWindex, with products rated F- toxic by ewg.org, there are many "greenwashing" products around.

Greenwashing Cleaners

❌ Greenwashing companies are filling their “natural" products with synthetic petrochemical, oleochemical emollients, thickeners, detergents, fragrances, and preservatives. Brands such as MethodSafewayGreen Works (a Clorox company), Babyganics, and Mrs.Meyer’s are still classified as toxic by ewg.org, with products classified 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.

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, pets, and the environment.  Use your nose and eyes. Read the ingredients list. Avoid fragranced products and colored liquid products.

 
Organic Cleaners

They are a just few natural and organic floor brands that are safer, not greenwashing, and transparent. The list in their ingredients and meet my strict criteria. 

On this page will find only the most natural and safe floor detergents on the market, kid-friendly, and pet-friendly. They are all listed below.

Some are 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! Not sure how a USDA Certified Organic Seal looks like? Look here.

They are Biodegradable, and some of them have 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! Here is an ewg.org guide for flooring
