What if we told you that some of the best and most effective household cleaners out there are plant-based? Yes, it's true!
If you're like most people, you probably think of plant-based cleaning products as those hippie concoctions that don't work all that well. But we're here to prove that theory wrong and help you learn more about them.
So, what exactly are plant-based cleaning products?
These are cleaning products that are made with natural ingredients that come from plants. This includes things like citrus oils, essential oils, and even some soil minerals.
For example, Haus Naturals Granite Cleaner is made from Decyl Glucoside, which is a mild, gentle, and biodegradable ingredient derived from corn and coconuts. It doesn't irritate your skin. You can even find this ingredient being used for self-care and beauty products.
Do plant-based cleaning products actually work?
The short answer is yes.
Plant-based cleaning products are just as effective as their chemical-laden counterparts. They might even be more effective because they're less likely to cause harm to your surfaces.
Harsh chemicals can break down dirt and grime. However, these same chemicals can also damage the surfaces you're cleaning. Over time, they can wear down the finish on countertops and wood furniture, making them more susceptible to scratches and stains. They can also cause tiles to become dull and faded.
The better option.
Now that you know more about what plant-based cleaning products are and that they're an effective alternative, we guess you’re wondering...
Why would I switch over when what I've been using has always worked?
The answer is simply because it's the better option.
Every day, we use products that contain harmful chemicals and pollutants that can damage the environment & negatively impact our health.
These harsh chemicals have fumes that can be accidentally inhaled, and can burn your skin upon contact. If these chemicals can hurt us this way, then it's easy to imagine how harmful they can be for plants and animals.
Plant-based cleaning products are the better option if you want to ensure your family's safety and preserve our environment. You'll feel good using them in your home because you know you've opted for a more sustainable and eco-friendly way to clean.
