Looking for "Green" Housecleaning Products

Updated on March 07, 2010
S.F. asks from Dayton, OH
49 answers

I have decided that I would like to stop using chemically based housecleaning products. I know there are several brands of "green" housecleaning products on the market and wanted to know if anyone had any expereince with any of them. Are they harmful to children? I had originally thought I would find recipes using baking soda, vinegar, etc to clean in order to keep toxic items away from the boys. But with so many items on the market I would be interested in trying them first. My primary reason for the switch is to rid the house of potentially life threatening items for my children. Secondary to that is it is an obvious way to help preserve our environment for our children. Thanks for any help.

I've done a lot of research and have a lot of knowledge about this, so here goes:

First, my advice!
1. Don't trust products that claim to be natural but don't list their ingredients very specifically. There is absolutely no regulations on products claiming to be natural! Many products will claim to be natural in order to meet the increasing demand for such products, but really they are not. If you can't pronounce the ingredient, chances are, it's not natural.

2. Buy the book "safer for baby" from Whole Foods. It lists ingredients to stay clear from.

3. Bleach is bad. Very bad. It's harmful to the environment and harmful to our skin. Avoid all products with bleach! Lemon juice is a great whitener/brightener in the wash!! I just add a few tablespoons to the bleach compartment in my washer.

4. If it's fragrant, it's probably asthma in a bottle. I can't even go down the cleaning aisle at the grocery store without having an asthma attack. Don't buy cleaners, air fresheners, etc that have scents UNLESS they SPECIFICALLY say they are scented with ESSENTIAL OILS. Fragrance is NOT an essential oil! Essential oils are the oils of plants.

Here's what I use:

1. BIOKLEEN products. Wow. These products ROCK. All Natural and very pure. You can get them at KROGER in the natural market section! How awesome is that? I love their all purpose cleaner and their dishwasher soap.

2. 7th Generation products. I like their toilet bowl cleaner and LOVE their orange degreaser. It's fabulous!

3. Earth friendly products. They have an enzyme cleaner (stain remover) that is phenomenol! It actualy removed cat pee from my carpet. True story! AND, my 1 year old daughter got a hold of it, somehow got the lid off, and drank a fair amount (all within just one minute, while my husband went to the bathroom) and never got sick. Very safe.

4. Vinegar and baking soda. Excellent cleaners.

I make a scrub that is out of this world- very natural, smells great, works on EVERYTHING- tubs, sinks, stainless steel, formica, walls... people that I've made it for say I should sell it. If you're interested, feel free to email me! I'm not looking to get rich, just want to help make the world a little more green without going broke in the process. I will use recycled containers- yours or mine. Preferably glass (like mayonaise jars or mason jars), but plastic is ok as long as it wasn't a chemical cleaner container in its previous life.

My cleaning kit has my scrub in it, vinegar, hyd. peroxide, tea tree oil (mixed with water- great antibacterial), BIOKLEEN all purpose cleaner, Earth Friendly products window cleaner and stain remover, and the 7th generation degreaser. I use my scrub and vinegar the most and really, that's all you need! Vinegar is a natural germ killer without going overboard like the chemical ones.

I could go on. If you want more info, feel free to email me!

Be careful about products labeled natural or "green." they may still contain harmful ingredients. An organization called the environmental working group rates health and beauty products according to their toxic ingredients. they may do the same for cleaning products. I think the website is ewg.org.

I agree with a lot of the responses that vinegar and baking soda is the way to go. It will clean almost anything.

answers from Louisville on

When choosing to use "green" products you must consider the content of the products and the sustainability pratictes of the manufacturer. Two organizations I know of that rate the content are "Green Seal" and "LEED" If your concern is for safety and enviroment you should try to determin the sustainability pratictes of the manufacturer. How are the products packaged, are they concentrated(less fuel for transportation,less plastic/cardboard). You must also remember that "harsh" chemicals are used in regular products because they work. When using alternative ingredients results will suffer or the cost will be higher. You must decide if its worth the cost or elbow grease. There is no regulation on what a company can call "Green". Anybody can say anything about any product. Look for a outside organizations approval of the products in question. Yes I work for a Institutional chemical supplier (no household products). The husband.

Hi S.,
There are many products out there that have started going green and not using all the harsh and toxic ingrediets. Some work well,some don't but are very expensive. I have had a cleaning business for 25 years, and trust me I have tried them all! I now have a wholesale membership with a wellness company that has really been the answer for me. Not only do they work so much better than ANYTHING out there..toxic or not, but they're less expensive. Beyond the cleaning products, you would be shocked to know what's in all of the bath and body products, skin care and cosmetics, air fresheners...you name it. I just read an article about something called phthaltes. they mentioned it being in baby shampoos, lotions and powders which causes reproductive problems. I already know of formaldehyde being in all these products as well (look for quanternium 15) that's a trade name for a formadehyde releaser. It's a known carcinagin. I had asthma for years, and since switching stores, I don't have asthma any more. I don't have to pay for Singulair, inhalers or use that supid nebulizer!

I was introduced to some cleaning products (as well as other home / health / beauty care products) at Shaklee by a friend of mine. Not long after I ordered some products, my then 2-year old son, ate some of the dishwashing detergent as quickly as my back was turned to answer the phone. I called poison control immediately and told them about the product, and that it didn't include phosphates and other harmful chemicals. The operator told me that that made things better compared to other products. He threw up; I had him drink a lot of water; and no other symptoms ever arose. Safe!

If you're interested in checking them out, you can visit www.shaklee.net/healthydecisions. There is also a CD called "The Real Dirt On Clean" that you can review before you purchase. I'd be happy to send you one, or you can call the distributor directly - just let me know if you're interested.

"Get Clean" was featured on Oprah’s "favorite things" show – twice! And it was also on when Dr. Oz was on her show. You might be able to find it by doing a search on her website.

Get Clean was also featured in Time Magazine's Style Design issue as one of the best products of 2007.

If I sound like an advertisement for their products, I probably am. I've been happy with them all so far.

Hope this helps.

Honestly, with the exception of things like laundry and dishwasher detergent, I have found it easiest to just use household items to clean--vinegar and baking soda are the two I use most. And they're really cheap!! There's a great book called "Greening your Cleaning" that gives a ton of ideas on how to use more green things to clean your home. As for detergents--I use trader Joe's laundry detergent and seventh generation dishwasher detergent. Good luck!

Hi S.,

I am an avid user of Melaleuca products as well as Seventh Generation. Melaleuca products can only be obtained through their website; (www.melaleuca.com) you have to be a preferred member, however. This months open membership is $14.50. Seventh Generation products can be purchased at Wild Oats Market or visit their website (www.seventhgeneration.com) to find other stores and/or view their product line. Target I know sells the Seventh Generation dish soap and I love it. Visiting Wild Oats Market and Whole Foods Market (actually one in the same) you will find a wide selection of "green" products. I even buy the reusable, cloth grocery bags, the only thing is remembering to take them with you to the store. LOL

Wish you the best.

I have done 2 years of research about toxic chemicals in everyday household products. I am now spend a large portion of my time educating consumers so they know what they are exposing themselves and their children to on a daily basis and, more importantly, what the health risks are.

To learn more, you can go to my website: www.GoGreen4Health.com. On it you will see recent news articles on the topic, video clips, health trends, and a lot of other useful (shocking and eye opening) info.

As a result of my research I was fortunate to find a company that offers all non-toxic products for your home (cleaning, personal care, organic foods, etc). They are a member of the BBB Hall of Fame and all of their products are GUARANTEED to be better, safer and LESS EXPENSIVE than what you are currently using. And they get shipped right to your door. So you save time and save money! I have partnered up with them so I can help families detoxify their homes. I'd love to tell you all about it! Simply fill out the contact me form on my website (or email me thru this site) and I'll call you ASAP!! You can also read the testimonials on my site to see how these products have helped other families. (The reason why I love my job!)

I commend your efforts to protect your children. Its so important. If we don't do it, who will?! And why risk our children's health when we don't have to?!

Hope to hear from you soon! Have a great day, S.!

I agree with the other mom, baking soda and vinegar. Baking soda is a great alternative to comet cleanser and vinegar is fantastic for disolving hard water stains.

Also add to the list hydrogen peroxide. It's a great disinfectant (you put it on wounds) and can be used any where you would use bleach or a lysol product. It is even safe to use as a mouth wash or gargle (although it might not taste as good). Hydrogen peroxide is the active ingredient in oxi-clean, so add a little to your laundrey. Just be aware that hydrogen peroxide is sensitve to light and will break down if not stored in it's original brown bottle.

I use mostly seventh generation products, available at whole foods, a co-op, or our local kroger. I don't like the glass cleaner as it streaks badly and have gone back to vinegar and newspaper - though that has lead in it so you have to make sure to keep that out of reach of the kiddos as well as washing your hands afterward. I don't like Clorox "green" stuff - it's still Clorox. Also, as opposed to Clorox wipes, I like using the Seventh Generation baby wipes....sometimes with a lil rubbing alcohol for disinfectant and shine on hardware. Here's their website: http://www.seventhgeneration.com/

We also use (and are happy with) Allen's Naturally Laundry Detergent.

Hi S.
What a great goal you have - and one that is easily attainable. There is a company that was concerned about these same things forty years ago (long before it was a popular topic) and they have been testing and producing products that fill your need for these many years. In third-party tests, their products out-performed all other brands ("natural" and other) and cost a fraction of what the ones available in stores cost. One product can be a baby wash (same pH as our skin), window cleaner, all purpose cleaner, degreaser and water conditioner that makes water "wetter" for growing things. The entire line of products is biodegradable and extremely concentrated which is doubly good for the environment, and economical to use. Here's a site where you can both learn and purchase. Best of luck in your quest. http://www.shaklee.net/changinglives/prodHou

We use the "Ecosense" line of products from Melaleuca. They are all water based. So basically you pour 1/4 cup of the solution and the rest water into the spray bottles they send you. These products are safer for your home. You can't buy them in a store. They actually sent us a DVD with the products. The DVD is facilitated by two moms who explain the value in using the Ecosense products. We were introducted to the products by a friend who is an independent representative for Melaleuca. They offer everything from cleaning products to food products (and a whole lot more). We have been customers for about 3 months now and love the products. We actually order off of the internet and they arrive within 2 days. The products can be a bit pricey but last a while and they are better for your household, so it's worth it. You can find out more info. at melaleuca.com. Feel free to email me for more specifics about the products.

A quick response to a comment from Traci - LEED rates buildings, not products.

On the healthy cleaning front, I've used Biokleen products (especially their laundry detergent and enzymatic cleaner Bac-out) for years, and REALLY like it. You can buy the laundry detergent in a big, 5 gallon tote or pump container and have enough for about a year. Reduces packaging, too. You can do that with the Bac-out as well, but I haven't needed that much since I had a diaper pail!

Citru-solv is a great general cleaner, and can be diluted to a variety of strengths for a variety of purposes. Straight, it will clean adhesive from surfaces, and even get off the excess foam from those cans of spray insulation. Beats having acetone in the house!

Doc Bronner's soaps are very environmentally sound, and are organic and fair trade as well. They come in great, essential oil scents like peppermint, lavender, tea tree oil, and NONE! Their Sal Suds formulation is great for floors and grubby surfaces, and has a nice, piney scent from its ingredients.

Seventh Generation and Ecover both offer a good range of cleaning products. We tend to favor Ecover's stuff, especially the liquid dish soap and toilet bowl cleaner. Another poster is right - you can order them in "bulk" from Amazon. You can also find them locally at Whole Foods, Clifton Natural, Susan's Natural World, and the health food store on Colerain.

We have not had luck with any health food store dishwasher powder yet. Bums me out, but it needs to work for us to stick with it.

On a basic level, there's little you can't clean with baking soda and vinegar. I buy the biggest, cheapest containers I can find (try places like Sav-a-Lot and the Dollar stores) and use them for the bathroom, kitchen, etc. Baking soda is a great replacement for scouring powder, and doesn't expose you or your family to bleach. It's also great for brushing your teeth.

Before we had our first child, we went through the same process of making our house less toxic. It was well worth it, since besides having a house that doesn't need locks on every cabinet, we tend to have less respiratory issues than a lot of families I know.

For those who seem to think everything needs to be heavily scented to impart cleanliness, nothing smells better than a CLEAN house, with no heavy artificial fragrances to get in the way.

Good luck!

Hi S.. I admire and respect your desire to "go green". I have been wanting to try some of these products myself. I recently joined a marketing company because I was so impressed with their health and beauty products. A few weeks ago one of my team members was raving to me about their cleaning products as well. I am sad to say that I haven't taken the time to try them yet, but it's on my list for when I place my next order. For me, I wanted to get my family on the vitamins first, and then I'd think about trying out all of the other great products.

You can find them at

www.marketamerica.com/rebeccahill

On the left of the webpage click on Home and Garden. Then you will see environmentally friendly cleaning products. You can read all about them and see what ones you would be interested in trying. I think I will get the EcoSolve starter kit. It's like $20 for a 4 piece kit. Because they are so concentrated, I heard they last forever!

If you decide on any, let me know what you think of them.

I have been cleaning green for some time now and you can spend money on the stuff at the health food store - I don't necessarily trust the stuff at the conventional supermarket, but in the end a spray bottle of vinegar water, vinegar water for mopping and a non abrasive scrub and good old elbow grease does the trick better than ever.
If you are the kind who likes to spend the money on stuff, we all know that is fun : ) - then you should also check out the "Method" brand Target sells, they are reasonably priced.

I have started my own business with an International Wellness Store. My goal is to eventually work from home. I have my business posted under "Choose 2 B Toxic Free". I would love to give you all of the details. You can message me back with your phone number, or go to www.LiveTotalWellness.Com/AnitaM click "More Info", fill in the blanks and I'll get right back to you. Kudos to you! It can feel weird to make these changes at first, but you will have peace of mind your family is safe!!!

Hi S.,
I mostly use seventh generation, but i always check the warning labels on cleaners before I buy them. I'm comfortable w/ 'green' products that say "If ingested, drink a glass of water" (That's much more comforting than "Call poison control"!).

I'd stay away from a brand called "restore". It's non-toxic, but doesn't work well (for me at least)

Whole foods or Mustard Seed can point you in the right directions...

Good Luck,
M.

I like the Clorox brand green products. They seem to work as good as my old stuff.

Shaklee has great products. They have been around for 50 years, and they were *green* before green was *cool*.
The Healthy Home Starter kit is really great!

Clorox has a brand new line out simply called Green.

And I've used Simple Green before and loved it.

And I haven't found a better carper cleaner than white vinegar and baking soda. ;-) Cheap, too!
