I’m not going to lie, finding green cleaning products that work and that I’m happy with has been a bit of a journey for me. (Journey [jur-nee} verb, defined as; taking waaay too long and way too much money.) And that’s why I am sharing my favourite products with you, in the hopes that my “journey” will save you both precious time and money!
My favourite cleaning product brand to date is Sapadilla, they’re eco-friendly, they smell amazing, they work, and they’re Canadian! Their line includes several products, but my faves are the countertop spray, liquid dish soap and all-purpose cleaner.
Laundry detergent has always been a pain for me, literally! Most detergents leave me with a breakout of itchy hives or a burning rash, so I often stick to plain old baking soda. But for more soiled items I like to use The Honest Company’s Oxy Boost – it’s one of the only detergents I found that doesn’t irritate my skin.
Now, on to one of the cleaning categories that has been the bain of my existence for many years… dishwasher soup. Yes, that’s right, dishwasher soup – one of the main characters in my fore mentioned “journey” to green cleaning. If you’ve attempted to switch over to eco-friendly dishwasher soap then you probably know what I mean. Some leave a soapy scum, some leave streaks, some leave your dishwasher looking like a bomb went off inside of it, and others just straight up don’t work! That being said, I finally found Bio-Vert Automatic Dishwasher Tabs and haven’t looked back since. Trust me they work!
My other go to items are my DIY Glass Cleaner, baking soda, vinegar and essential oils. These items can be used for a myriad of cleaning situations and are super versatile.
And last, but not least, I like to use an eco-friendly and pet-friendly toilet bowl cleaner. Because you never know when your furry friend might decide to take a dip or sip in the toilet. I don’t have one in particular brand that I use all the time, but am enjoying The Honest Company’s Honest Toilet Cleaner right now.
Happy, healthy cleaning everyone!

|Sprouted Tip: I’m lucky enough to find most of my favourite cleaning supplies at my local health food store, but I also love shopping for eco-friendly and non-toxic products on The Detox Market Canada and Well.ca. They carry the above products – and they’re Canadian!|
