The Truth About Eco Friendly Products for Cleaning

Nontoxic cleaning products greatly improve the quality of life for you and those you care about. Eco-friendly products for cleaning leave your home and workplace clean. But they sanitize and refresh without toxic chemicals. This means less opportunity for skin rash, eye irritation, and respiratory illness. But how effective are these cleaning products and what, exactly, do they contain? 

What Defines an Eco-Friendly Cleaning Product?

Simply stated, an eco-friendly cleaner is one that has low impact or no impact on the environment. It doesn’t deplete the ozone or contain carcinogens that contribute to cancer. It’s generated from renewable sources and features a low VOC (Volatile Organic Compound) content. Products that qualify as eco-friendly are easily biodegradable. This means they won’t spend decades taking up space in the local landfill. They’re also nontoxic to marine life and don’t catch fire easily.

That’s a long list of positives for a chemical that needs to kill germs and bacteria while removing dirt and grime. But it’s entirely possible. Today’s market is filled with all types of eco-friendly cleaning tools and disinfectants. And all are safe and effective alternatives to harsh chemicals. They’re deadly to germs and bacteria, but safe enough for children and pets. But what, exactly, do they contain? 

What Are the Active Ingredients in Eco-Friendly Cleaners?

The active ingredients in these nontoxic cleaning products make them good choices for general cleaning and include things like:

  • Sodium Bicarbonate (baking soda)
  • Vinegar
  • Lemon Juice
  • Castile Soap
  • Hydrogen Peroxide
  • Tea Tree Oil

Cleaners like these will freshen and sanitize spaces without leaving behind caustic fumes or dangerous toxins. 

Are Nontoxic Cleaning Products Really Effective? 

Nontoxic products can be very effective at killing bacteria and mold. They also disinfect surfaces and remove odors from the air. They can degrease and remove dirt and debris, too, especially if they create foam or suds. Additives such as hydrogen peroxide or citric acid are safer alternatives to bleach.  Surprisingly, they sanitize areas just as well. And plain old soap and water should never be overlooked as valuable cleaning supplies. In fact, using soap and water before applying disinfectant or sanitizer increases the cleaning power of your favorite vegan products.
