Why use eco friendly cleaning products?

1. No nasty chemicals in your home

If you’re a family or individual with pets or children, this reason alone is a good one to make that change. There’s a reason why some cleaning products are just so good, melting away at that grease or limescale. What’s not to love? Well, the reality is that ease of cleaning comes at a cost to you and your families health with the inhaling of toxic chemicals such as, chlorine, ammonia, phthalates and many more. Ever heard the saying nothing in life comes free? Unfortunately this is the case for most cleaning products, if it can do that to tough grease then imagine what it’s doing to your insides – so switch to one of our top 10 solutions and work that tiny bit harder on that limescale or grease, your health will be thankful.

2. On a mission for a cleaner clean

Did you know Ecover use 100% of post-consumer recycled plastic for their bottles? All made in a certified zero waste factory. Many cleaning brands are similar, putting their purpose at the heart of their business and not just in what they sell, it’s who they are. Choosing to clean green has impacts well beyond what you see in your home.

3. Cost efficient

With many leading suppliers entering the market for green cleaning solutions, the competition has become high. This means that green cleaning products and all their mighty benefits are competitively priced and even cheaper than leading brands. Many eco cleaning products are also multi-functional, meaning you won’t have to buy different products for each section of cleaning that you tend to do with chemical-laden counterparts.


Do eco friendly cleaning products work?

If your expecting them to work exactly as chemical products then you might be slightly mistaken, of course chemical products will melt away that limescale more effectively then eco cleaning products. But according to the FDA there’s little evidence to suggest that anti-bacterial soap products are more effective than natural soaps. Try out our ecover limescale remover compared to your existing one and see what you think! They are more or less the same, but you might need a couple more scrubs on the ecover, although the benefits seem to outweigh the negatives.
