Non-Toxic Cleaning Products

All Purpose Cleaner / Dish Soap / Toilet Bowl Cleaner / Cleaning Scrub c/o

This might sound lame but I honestly get really excited about non-toxic, all natural cleaning products. Maybe it's the Kourtney Kardashian in me (kidding) but I love keeping as many things as I can, organic in my home. I have been slowly changing over all of my cleaning products over and wanted to share a few I love. 

I discovered this Greenshield Organic all purpose cleaner at Whole Foods a few months ago. I initially bought it because of the value I was getting. The price was less than $6 for a 32oz bottle. I Use it for pretty much everything. I use it in every single area of my home. My dining room table, kitchen, bathroom, mirrors, windows etc... It's USDA certified organic and is derived primarily of plants and other natural ingredients. It does a great job of keeping my house squeaky clean.

I get my Honest dish soap from Target because, 5% off using my Target card. Holla! K. I love this stuff. I've used other natural dish soaps and some of them just don't do a very good job on greasy pans. This stuff gets it's allllll out and looks pretty sitting on your sink at the same time.

Why do I feel slightly weird talking about my toiler bowl with you guys? Hmmmm. I use the Seventh Generation toilet bowl cleaner. I hate using toxic chemicals in my bathroom because its such a small space so this stuff is a great option. I can clean my toilet without passing out from harmful fumes. 

I received this soft cleaning scrub from Mrs. Jones Soapbox a few months ago and fell in love with it right away. First of all, it smells like the most delicious almonds and you'll want to eat it right up. Don't!. Secondly, my tub and tiles have never shined the way they do after I use this stuff. It is some kind of miracle worker and I don't think I'll every use another scrub for my bathroom. Highly recommend guys.

What are some of your favorite all natural cleaning products? I love finding new ones.

Clever, huh? I love that I can take whats normally a summer food and bring it right into the holidays by transforming it a bit. This recipe takes just a few minutes to create which is awesome when you are trying to spend quality time with family during the holidays.
