Safe Cleaning Products: Non-Toxic Cleaners for Every Need

*Affiliate Disclosure

I’m all about helping folks create safe Filtered homes free of toxins. It’s pretty much my jam. And one of the easiest ways to detox your YOUR home is by switching out all those dangerous cleaners for safe cleaners.

But you say you don’t know where to start?

Well that was before you landed on this little patch of the internet. Because I’ve done all the research and vetted tons of products just to make your life a little easier.

So are you ready to take a big ol’ step toward a safer less toxin home?

Let’s do this! (and yes I get abnormally excited about these sorts of things—no judgement pretty please)

Safe Cleaning Products: Non-Toxic Cleaners for Every Need | via FilteredFamily.com

What’s wrong with conventional cleaners?

What’s NOT wrong with them?

For starters they are loaded with toxic chemicals that are irritating to the eyes, skin and lungs, like chlorine, ammonia [1], hydrochloric acid, and ammonium hydroxide [2]. Others are known carcinogens like perchloroethylene [3]. And the ironically named and often toxic air-freshener which is a known source of volatile organic compounds (VOCs) [4]

I could go on about the hazards of conventional cleaning products but that would make this a very long post. Instead I want to focus on the safer options available to you.

When I was transitioning to a Filtered toxin-reduced life I found myself spending hours and hours on research.

It was confusing and I found myself in a minefield of misleading claims and labels.

Know, I know you are busy. You don’t have time for hours and hours of research. But I don’t want any obstacles between you and toxin-reduced living so I’ve done all the work for you. So you can get what you need and get back to your spectacular life.

All the products in this list are rated A (best) by the Environmental Working Group (EWG), on a scale from A to F. A being the least likely to cause harm and F being the most likely to cause harm. That’s right nothing but the best for you.

Now that said I still recommend exercising common sense. Make sure you always clean in a well ventilated space, avoid direct skin contact (use gloves), and avoid getting products on your eyes or ingesting (duh).

And finally this isn’t an all-inclusive list, there are other great products out there but I’ve done my best to include a variety of options in each category so you have plenty to choose from. If a category only has a few options that’s because there weren’t many highly rated products to begin with.

Here goes, check out the list of top rated cleaning products for all your cleaning needs!
