What better way to spruce up than with earth-friendly spring cleaning products? Check out some natural cleaning products below and add them to your shopping list. It’s time to get clean and go green!
Once you’ve tidied up a room, found new homes for old items and realized you spilled tomato paste down the side of your fridge the last time you made chili, the need for an all-purpose cleaner is at an all-time high. J.R. Watkins Naturals All-Purpose Cleaner is able to clean up almost any mess without toxins or environmental guilt. The Natural No086 scent has lemon peel oil taken from the rind of a lemon and is a natural, cleansing mood enhancer. Sans formaldehyde, parabens and ammonia, J.R. Watkins Naturals All-Purpose Cleaners avoid harmful ingredients and toxic fragrances.
Dirtying your clothes is an unavoidable outcome. Cleaning your clothes with natural ingredients, however, is a choice. Biokleen’s Citrus Laundry Liquid doesn’t contain artificial fragrances or colors, and uses citrus and grapefruit seed extracts to make your clothes smell fresh. You won’t find chlorine, ammonia, phosphate or any hazardous materials in this laundry liquid. Whether you need to wash grass-stained jeans, shirts smeared with mustard or delicates worn to the gym, Biokleen’s Citrus Essence Laundry Liquid is a proven option that doesn’t harm you or the environment.
Spring cleaning is a lot of work, and sometimes you need to rock out while making your home smell and look good. Rockin’ Green’s Melody Odor Neutralize & Fragrance Spray is an eco-friendly odor neutralizer that can help get out the smells your pets and kids leave behind. The biodegradable plant-based and petroleum-free spray comes in two scents, Unplugged and Amped Up. Unplugged has hints of cookies, sandalwood and “sunshine,” and Amped Up reminds you of “love,” lychee and “unicorns.” Sure, it’s hard to know what unicorns smell like, but you can be certain phosphates, phthalates and artificial fragrances are not found in this melodic spray.
If you clean most of your house, but can’t look outside because you haven’t cleaned your windows since you bought the place, it might be a good idea to invest in glass cleaner. Sun & Earth offers a natural, safe glass cleaner that is biodegradable, non-toxic and hypoallergenic. Spraying down your windows can sometimes be harsh to your senses, but this product’s non-synthetic light citrus scent can take away streaks without making your head hurt. This glass cleaner is vegan and has zero chemical preservatives or dyes.
It’s easy to work up an appetite, particularly when you’re inside cleaning all day. Get outside and crack open that dormant grill.

It’s biodegradable and can help restore shine by removing baked-on food and grimy grease. Get to spraying and have your grill ready in time for your next BBQ.
Keeping whites white is almost impossible, especially if you can’t stand the intense smell of bleach. Don’t fret.

The bleach alternative is cruelty-free and doesn’t contain animal by-products. In addition, the company’s founders, not animals, test this product.
