Whether you have adopted a vegan lifestyle or just want to be more mindful about your impact on the environment, finding eco-friendly ways to clean your home will have a hugely positive impact. In short, there are two key components to consider – the cleaning agents and the cleaning tools. Here at Snooty Catz, we have a range of natural cleaning alternatives to help you improve both elements.
Switch to chemical-free cleaners
Standard chemical-based cleaners will increase the carbon footprint while breathing in the chemicals isn’t ideal for your family’s health either. Switching to chemical-free solutions that use entirely natural ingredients will make a significant improvement.
Another option is to create a homemade product using natural ingredients at home. For an added scent, you can turn to items like lemon juice or white wine vinegar.
Once you have found the right chemical-free home cleaners, you can look to add bathroom soaps and eco-friendly shampoos. This way, personal hygiene and home cleaning will both be under control.
Use plastic-free applicators and containers
In addition to the cleaning materials themselves, you should consider the impact of your applicator choices. Where possible, switching to containers like amber glass will be very useful. It means avoiding plastics that can take centuries to decompose. You can also keep reusing these bottles which is a win for you and the planet.
You can also look to use wooden brush handles that use bamboo bristles. Similarly, coconut scouring pads and other products made from natural ingredients should be selected.
When choosing high-quality products, like our selection here at Snooty Catz, the added longevity will add to your eco-friendly practices too. Keeping the home clean and green never looked easier.
