10 natural cleaning products for a healthy, eco-friendly home

Degreasers, detergents, softeners, window cleaners, bleach and other products are all familiar to us because we use them every day. However, scientists are constantly reminding us that these same products contain substances that are harmful to our health and the environment. By opting for safer alternatives, such as eco-friendly household products, we are helping to protect our planet and our health.

10 natural cleaning products for a healthy, eco-friendly home

In this article, we invite you to discover the many benefits of using natural products in your daily life.

The benefits of a more natural household

There’s a long list of toxic substances in our conventional cleaning products. All of them are allergenic, irritating, corrosive and harmful to the environment, yet they can easily be replaced by natural ingredients. Ecological cleaning is healthy and practical. You don’t have to look far! Many of the products you need to clean your surfaces are already in your cupboard! White vinegar, bicarbonate of soda, lemon and Marseille soap are all readily available. What’s more, natural cleaning is more than effective. The natural ingredients in ecological cleaning products are of the highest quality and just as effective as the products we use every day!

Citric acid, a multi-purpose essential to have at home

This product is an excellent natural scale remover and a powerful descaler in powder form. It descales washing machines and coffee makers and is 100% biodegradable. It’s an eco-friendly product that’s a must-have at home. As the main component of lemon, this multi-purpose product is an excellent substitute for the many detergents sold in supermarkets. It can be used for a variety of household cleaning tasks, such as :

  • descaling the washing machine or dishwasher by putting it directly into the drum
  • to disinfect work surfaces and chopping boards
  • removing limescale from taps and sinks, for example, by diluting citric acid in warm water and spraying the mixture on
  • to clean the bottoms of frying pans, saucepans or casseroles by heating citric acid and water in them

Microfibre cloths

Their fine polyester and polyamide fibres make them highly effective and heat-resistant. These mops clean every surface and every nook and cranny. With these mops, you can use less product and even just water.

Black soap, the essential partner in your home

Essentially made from oil and black olives, black soap is available in liquid or solid form and is a good natural, biodegradable cleaner and degreaser. It’s ideal as a base for washing-up liquid or as a floor cleaner. It can be used indoors and outdoors to thoroughly clean floors and surfaces, as well as windows and stains on your clothes. Tip: dissolve it in a little hot water, as it is highly concentrated. It’s also an excellent insect repellent for your plants.

Essential oils to perfume your home

To combat unpleasant odours and purify the air in your home, essential oils have everything you need: just a few drops are enough to perfume, purify or disinfect your home. There are many scents to choose from, each with its own virtues: lavender for its insecticidal action and stress-relieving benefits, lemon for purifying and purifying the air, tea tree for boosting the immune system and preventing mould. They’re easy to find in chemists, ecological shops and certain supermarkets.

Clay stone to shine and protect objects and surfaces

Clay stone is a real miracle solution! This 100% natural all-purpose cleaner cleans, degreases, shines, renovates and protects many objects and surfaces in your home. It can also be used to shine your jewellery and give it a new lease of life. Simply rub your jewellery with the stone, a soft cloth and warm water, and the oxidation disappears. What’s more, it can be used to remove dirt from rough or waxed parquet without damaging it. You can also use a little clay stone with a soft cloth to remove stains and black marks, as well as candle wax, for a floor that’s as good as new!

Now you have all the tips you need to make your home shine in a healthy, environmentally-friendly way!
