Eco Cleaning Your Home 

Whether it's cutting down on plastic waste or reducing your meat consumption, everyone is looking for methods to reduce their carbon footprint and lead a sustainable lifestyle. Along with the upsurge of environmentally friendly living has come a new trend in cleaning.

Eco cleaning, also known as green cleaning, is a way of cleaning your home and belongings in a sustainable way. Often times people neglect to think about the effect that their cleaning products have on the environment. It may be those one-use surface wipes you use to clean up a mess on the counter or the aerosol and plastic containers which go to waste once your cleaning products are done. 

We're all responsible for building the world into a more sustainable place, which is why we've compiled a list of ways to implement the top eco-cleaning techniques into your home cleaning routine, so you can rest assured that your lifestyle is sustainable. 

Use Multi-Purpose Products

One fantastic way to turn your routine into an eco-cleaning practice is by investing in eco-friendly multi-purpose products. Often times when you buy a product for one specific cleaning purpose, such as a stain remover, it will include plenty of toxins that are harmful to the environment. However, multi-purpose products tend to be greener, making them a great choice for your eco-cleaning routine. 

You’ll even get more use out of them! Instead of having harmful products taking up space in your cupboard, you can have a multi-purpose spray which removes stains, freshens up materials, and is environmentally friendly. 

Reuse Your Toothbrushes 

Plastic toothbrushes add up to 50 million pounds of waste to landfills! However, did you know that they also make excellent cleaning companions? While you may think your old toothbrushes are long expired from use, they can come in very handy for scrubbing things and getting to awkward areas. 

For instance, if you’ve ever tried to handwash a water flask, you’ll know how difficult it is to get to those corners with a regular sponge. However, a toothbrush with some soap will be able to reach all of those spots with ease, all while throwing you into the eco-cleaning and green cleaning lifestyle! 

Buy Reusable Kitchen Towels 

While they might look like they're made of paper, kitchen towels cannot be recycled due to the pulp which it is made from, which is produced using toxic chemicals. Despite this, kitchen towels are plenty of people's first choice when it comes to wiping up a stain, which will significantly degrade your eco-cleaning credentials! 

Instead, invest in a reusable kitchen towel that you can wash and reuse. There are bamboo towels that mimic the feel of a regular kitchen towel and are just as effective – you might even opt for a reliable cloth instead! 

Baking Powder will Be Your Savior 

You've probably used baking powder to make a cleaning solution before, but did you know it's one of the best eco-cleaning products out there for your home? Baking soda is an excellent green cleaning companion since it has so many uses. It can be used to clean your toilet stains, freshen your fridge, a shower scrub, and can even be used to get to those nasty grease stains that won't come off of your pans! 

The best thing is that baking powder is non-toxic, making it an eco-cleaning go-to material for green cleaning! In addition, it's derived totally from natural resources, making it much more environmentally friendly than its famous cleaning companion, bleach, as well as plenty of other synthetic cleaners on the market. 


If you're looking to provide fantastic eco-cleaning techniques for your home, then there are plenty of straightforward steps you can implement right away to make your cleaning greener! 

First off, be sure to invest in eco-friendly multi-purpose products and reusable kitchen towels so that you're getting your money's worth out of your sprays and wipes. 

Next, get savvy with your used materials by using old toothbrushes to clean those awkward spots that a sponge just can't reach. Finally, and most importantly, make sure you're stocked up on baking powder since it is an eco-cleaning fanatic's best friend for cleaning the house with natural and environmentally friendly resources.
