14 Apr Three eco-friendly spring-cleaning tips
Spring is here, the clocks have gone forward and we are now enjoying more daylight.
The lighter days are lovely, but they tend to show up the dust bunnies that were happily hidden until now.
Which all points to the fact you might be looking for eco-friendly spring-cleaning tips?
Read on for three of our suggestions to use less plastic, reduce landfill and keep some extra money in your pocket.
1. Stop buying new bottles for cleaning by investing in a spray bottle
Most cleaning around the house starts with a cloth and a bottle, and most of them involve water too.
To save money on products and keep the recycling bin empty, we recommend ditching single use plastics for a clear glass spray bottle that can be used for any water-soluble cleaning liquids.

2. Ditch the disposable Jay cloth, keep landfill lower.
So much fabric ends up in landfill every year. Much of it takes years to biodegrade. I’m sure you’ll agree that it’s better to use less fabric in the first place, and one way to manage this is switching to reusable dish cloths and cleaning sponges. The compostable sponges that we have are simply the best, good for you and good for the planet. These simply break down in your food waste when there is no life left in them and you have zero waste cleaning!

3. Cut down on your chemical cleaning, help keep our waterways clean & toxins from your house
The amount of water pollution that ends up in our rivers and lakes due to domestic use is really high.
By looking at how you use chemicals to clean your home you can take the first step.
Have you heard of Natural Bleach? which is also known as percarbonate of soda.
It’s a safe, non-toxic alternative to harsh chlorine bleach. Simply dissolve in warm water and safely use as a powerful stain remover, to disinfect your toilet, brighten whites and eliminate odors.
