The Best Natural Cleaning Products For Your Home

Ever wonder if the “green” cleaning products you’re buying are actually environmentally friendly?

Are you unsure which cleaning products are bringing toxins into your home, despite their health-conscious branding and packaging?

It can be hard to know what you’re actually buying when you know there are products that just slap a green label on the packaging and insert the words “green” or “natural” into their branding, while still containing harmful chemicals.

Natural cleaning products can not only make your home safer (bye-bye flammable and toxic chemicals!), they can also protect the health of you and your family and cause less harm to the environment.

We wanted to make it super easy for you to walk into the grocery or drug store and buy some truly safe, green, and natural products for your home.

All of the products we recommend in this article are based off of the Good Guide’s product rating system, developed by a team of over 50 scientific and regulatory professionals with expertise in chemical-containing products.

On the Good Guide site, we took a look at the following types of household cleaners:

  • All-purpose
  • Glass
  • Toilet bowl
  • Laundry detergent
  • Dishwashing liquid

Then, we took a look at some of the most common, locally-sold brands that advertise as natural/green products:

  • Green Works
  • Method
  • Safeway Bright Green
  • Seventh Generation
  • Nature Clean

The Most Consistent and Highest-Rated Household Cleaners

Two common, locally-sold brands consistently achieve the highest rating on the Good Guide site, across all of their products. These are:

  • Green Works
  • Safeway Bright Green.

The remaining brands we researched tend to fluctuate more — some of their products rate 10 on the Good Guides scale of 1-10, while others rate as low as 4 or 6, depending on the product. These are:

  • Seventh Generation
  • Method
  • Nature Clean

The good news is, if you’re ever unsure about a product, you can just pop it into the Good Guide’s search bar.

Here’s to keeping your home green, clean, and chemical-free!
