No matter what, it always happens.
Each time I go to clean my home, my throat gets scratchy and the cough and sneeze fit begins. I know it’s due to the chemicals in my cleaning products, so over the past year or so, I’ve been looking into eco-friendly cleaning products and chemical-free cleaning products.
Once I stumbled across The Green Laundress via Twitter, I knew I had to give them a try.
Created by Erica, The Green Laundress produces non-toxic cleaning products made with all-natural ingredients you can pronounce and are familiar with.
I learned that the Multipurpose Spray can be used for practically anything. I cleaned my kitchen sink, counters, living room coffee table and bathroom mirrors with it and it left clean surfaces without streaks.
The spray only contains a handful of ingredients: Distilled water, castile soap, citric acid, and a blend of essential oils – which I love.
If possible, no matter if I’m looking at a skincare, beauty, food or household product, I try to make sure they contain less than six healthy ingredients.
Despite the castile soap addition, don’t expect any bubbles or a sticky soap-like consistency. It’s very light and carries an airy scent.
Now on to The Green Laundress Tub Scrub – which really surprised me.
It contains baking soda, castile soap, distilled water, cream of tartar, citric acid and essential oils.
I began with a mostly clean tub, but what I wasn’t expecting was the amazing shine I ended with. The tub scrub rinsed well and had a similar scent to the Multipurpose Spray.
Before using the scrub, I wasn’t familiar with the use of cream of tartar for cleaning, which is found in the product. After doing some research, I learned cream of tartar is great for removing rust stains, shining stainless steel, polishing your stovetop and more.
While it was great that I learned this – I was disgusted to learn we actually eat this (read your food labels ladies).
Overall, I very much enjoyed the eco-friendly cleaning products from The Green Laundress. I love supporting women-owned and black-owned business and I’ll definitely be ordering her all-natural laundry soap soon.
