My Top 5 Essential Oils For Cleaning

I started to make my own cleaning products last year because I became very aware of how much plastic waste is created from buying the standard household cleaners we find in the supermarket aisles, I was more conscious of the fact that these contain chemicals which can be harmful to both my children/pets as well as the environment plus you can end up spending an awful lot on something that may not last very long. For me, eco cleaning is everything that these products aren’t: safe, non-toxic, cost-effective and work efficiently. Another big positive here is that you can use whatever essential oils you like to help to tackle those cleaning jobs and to also add a wonderful aroma. No artificial perfumes here, all natural, pure (if you look for the right oils) and fresh scents. So, which are my top 5 essential oils for cleaning? Let’s find out…

When I began my eco journey I knew I wanted to make a difference wherever and however I could. It started quite small but has since blossomed into a big project which provides me with lots of fun challenges. Plastic waste and chemicals are 2 areas that I have focussed on quite a lot and when I was looking under my kitchen sink I was astonished by how I had been reeled in without a second thought. We are all ‘sold’ these products as making our lives easier, being the best at cleaning, the best price, the must-have to keep your home clean but in actual fact, it’s not true at all.

Review | Eco Cleaning with E-Cloth

*Gifted Products

I really do like a clean house but I really detest having to use chemicals. I have become far more aware of the amount most people use every single day around their homes and this not only affects the environment but can also affect your health, your children’s and any pets you may own too. I’ve recently been making my own cleaning products in order to steer clear of all of these toxins but then e-cloth got in touch with me and told me they had cloths that enabled you to clean using only water!! Yes, just water. Well, I knew I had to find out if this could work for me and I just had to see the results for myself. I was kindly sent the general purpose cloth, glass and polishing cloth, water spray bottle, shower cleaning cloths, washing up pad and the pad and tablet cleaning kit from e-cloth to review.

Review | Vegan Dish Washing Block

In my constant quest to find products that are both eco-friendly, animal-friendly and plastic-free I am always excited when I see other people using new items on Instagram. When I saw a few posts on a vegan dish washing block I knew I had to give it a go because the washing up liquid was one of the last plastic-filled items on my kitchen worktop. I purchased the block back in September ’19 but wanted to be able to give you a good review of it over time rather than a rushed one over a couple of weeks or so.
