Why I Changed To Natural Cleaning Products

The reason I changed to natural cleaning products really came down to my own health journey, one thing that has become extremely important to me is making sure my household is as toxic free as possible. While there are somethings that our household is still transitioning from, there are a few non negotiables:

-My skincare & beauty products
-Household natural cleaning products

I am all about meeting people half way, and when we decided to finally swap out our cleaning products to natural cleaning products, it wasn’t an overnight fix. I proposed to my partner that we needed to use natural cleaning products, and his rebuttal was twofold:

“they won’t be as good”
“they will be too expensive & we have all of the products we need already”

So, I set out to introduce him to the very effective world of toxic free natural cleaning products that won’t break the bank.

Did you know that the Environmental Working Group (EWG) reviewed the safety data of over 1000 ingredients used in commercial household cleaning products. The results were pretty shocking studies have shown, that more than half ingredients used in generic cleaners can be harmful to the lungs, and a whopping 1 in 5 ingredients that can trigger asthma (even in healthy individuals).

I want to feel confident that I have provided the safest toxic free household environment for myself, my partner, loved ones and fur kids. Walking down the aisle at Woolworths, which is where one of my favourite Aussie brands comes into the picture.

  1. I saw this on your instagram story and then went straight to the supermarket to stock up!! I now use it for everything!! I love adding in a cap of it into my washing machine ontop of the detergent! Smells heavenly.

    1. This makes me so happy to hear!!
      I have finally converted my partner too – he now loves it!!

  2. Hey Keira! What did you say was the easiest way to get off labels on your glass jars? Did you use this stuff? I went and stocked up in bulk on the weekend of the oil!! Just ordered some spray bottles so I can start making up

    1. Hey Sarah,

      Use 1 part vegetable oil and 2 parts baking soda make it into a paste. Then add a cap full of euco oil and rub it generously over the labels. You will need to wait a few days but it makes dissolving the glue very easy.

      Once removed I put them in the dishwasher for a cycle. 🙂

  3. I have really been hesitant to make my own DIY stuff – coz i thoguht it just wouldn’t work.
    buttttt – gave this a crack and I love it! so much more cheaper too and it smells divine!

    1. YAY!! I love the eucalyptus smell and it really does save $$$
