What’s Really Lurking In Conventional Cleaning Products?

The sad reality is that cleaning products that are use to clean our homes are leaving behind air pollution and poisons.  These are products people use day in and day out and often don’t think twice about.  The toxic load they put on the body is downright scary.  Not to mention the accumulative affect they have when used over and over.  

I’m sure you’ve experienced initial affects from using conventional cleaning products, such as being light headed, getting a chemical burn or having watery eyes.  However, those are minor in comparison to the long term affects associated with consistent use of conventional cleaning products.  Cancer being one of the major downsides to constant exposure of toxic cleaning products.  

Ingredients To Avoid In Cleaning Products:

  • Parabens
  • Triclosan
  • Ammonia
  • Perchloroethylene or “PERC”
  • Phthalates
  • Sodium Hydroxide
  • Chlorine 
  • Bleach
  • Phenols
  • Quaternary Ammonium Compounds, or “QUATS”

Parabens- (This includes methyl-, propyl- ethyl-,butyl-) This is an ingredient we see often in beauty products but it’s also found in cleaning products.  It’s a hormone disruptor also known as endocrine disruptor.  Been known to cause reproductive problems too.  Has been found in breast cancer tumors, may cause male infertility and early puberty.

Triclosan- Drying of the skin, skin irritant and has been linked to eczema.  Endocrine disruptor and has been found to have 1, 4 dioxane, again cancer causing. It can be found in laundry detergents, hand soaps, dish soaps- anything that gets super sudsy.  Avoid any soaps that use the word “antibacterial” on them.  They more than likely contain triclosan if they have antibacterial on the label.

Ammonia- Irritation of the eyes, skin and throat. Also can burn the skin when it comes in to contact with it. Excessive exposure may lead to liver and kidney damage. It can be found in bathroom, floor, carpet, glass, upholstery and stain cleaners.  

Perchlorethylene of “PERC”- Causes dizziness, headaches, nausea, skin irritations and respiratory issues.  Long term effects are neurological problems, liver and kidney damage and cancer. Found in dry cleaning, wood solvents, cleaning solvents, aerosol products and carpet cleaners.

Phthalates- These are found in products that contain fragrance.  So many cleaning products contain fragrance.  From all purpose cleaners, bathroom cleaners, carpet cleaners, air fresheners, laundry detergent and dryer sheets.  They cause hormone disruption, and reproductive issues in males and females. 

Sodium Hydroxide- Found in many solvents and cleaners.  From oven cleaners to drain cleaners. It can cause burning in the eye, throat and skin.

Chlorine- Bad for the lungs, has been linked to thyroid issues, skin irritations, and linked to dementia in the elderly.  Can be found in many disinfectant cleaning products. Chlorine bleach and ammonia are big toxic culprits when it comes to cleaning products.  and you should not mix them together.  If mixed they form chloramine gases which are toxic to the lungs

Bleach- Found in laundry products, toilet cleaners, many whitening cleaning products, and used as a disinfectant too.  Causes skin irritations, respiratory issues, liver and kidney damage.  You cannot mix with other cleaning products as it can cause serious chemical reactions.

Phenols- These are found in any cleaner that has the word “sol” in it.  From solvents, to air fresheners, detergents, flame retardants and disinfectants. Can cause liver and kidney damage, as well as skin irritations and central nervous system damage.

Fragrance- Fragrance is also a huge offender when it comes to conventional cleaning products.  Companies try and mask the scent by using artificial fragrance.  Artificial fragrance is a recipe for a toxic chemical cocktail.  Since fragrance is considered a “trade secret by the FDA, companies don’t have to share what’s in their fragrance.  All they have to do is list the word fragrance on a label.  So you have no idea what’s actually in a product when you see the word fragrance.  As mentioned earlier, phthalates are found in fragrance- another toxic offender.

This is an exert taken from The EWG article, “Not So Sexy.”

“The average fragrance product tested contained 14 secret chemicals not listed on the label. Among them are chemicals associated with hormone disruption and allergic reactions, and many substances that have not been assessed for safety in personal care products.”

Half the products now are loaded with so much fragrance to mask their smell that it practically knocks you off your feet!  Artificial fragrance, in my opinion, is one of the worst things-I can smell it a mile away.  Have you ever walked into someone’s house and the first thought was someone must have been cleaning because the scent is so intense?  I know I have.  That’s artificial fragrance at work.

Quaternary Ammonium Compounds, or “QUATS”- These are found in many disinfectant products.  They are meant to kill germs.  A lot of people think these are necessary for everyday use but they aren’t.  Unless you plan on doing something intense like a medical surgery, you don’t need these for everyday use.  They are lung and skin irritants, have shown to cause reproductive problems, and birth defects in mice. These also create superbugs which end up being resistant to other cleaning products and antibiotics.

Something to keep in mind.  The cleaning products are bioaccumulative in nature.  Since these are chemicals we use all the time, they build up over time.  That’s where the real danger comes in as long term affects are not something you want to be dealing with.  Isn’t it odd that the very products we use to clean our houses with end up causing us more harm than good in the long run?  It’s time to swap out the cleaning products and save yourself from toxic chemical exposure.

So I’ve compiled my complete natural cleaning product guide.  I’m sharing what I use and what works when it comes to natural products. Trust me, you won’t even miss your old stuff!

Best Natural Cleaning Tools 

natural cleaning products
Love e-cloth natural microfiber cleaning cloths!

I wanted to give a brief introduction about e-cloth before I continue sharing their products.  The basis of e-cloth is that it offers a chemical free cleaning experience using only water.  It does this through micro fiber technology, proprietary equipment, and manufacturing techniques.  

**Also, with many companies on the market offering similar microfiber cloths and products, learn why I chose e-cloth here.

e-cloth Glass & Polishing Cloth (Kitchen/Windows/Mirrors)

This cloth has been another winner from e-cloth.  One side is more grainy and perfect for getting rid of residue, while the other side is smooth for polishing.  Both sides remove 99% of bacteria just using water-I love it!  I just spray some water onto the stainless steel, then use the grainy side to remove any residue(make sure you go in the direction of your grain so you don’t scratch anything).  Then I would use the smooth side to polish.  It did clean my stainless steel well, but it didn’t leave it sparkling like I wanted.  I contacted e-cloth and asked what the solution might be to get the “sparkle” effect.

They recommended the Glass and Polishing Cloth.  So I got that, gave it a try, and bam-my stainless steel sparkled like new!  The best part is it not only works for shining up stainless steel, but also for cleaning windows and mirrors.  I would spray a little water onto my window or mirror and wipe away.  No streaky residue.  Are you hearing me people?!  There was absolutely no chemical used to clean my stainless steel, windows or mirrors!  Let’s just say I struck gold.  I also used the Stainless Steel Cloth to clean my granite counters, and my countertops never shined brighter.  I highly recommend these two products.  They tackle so many cleaning jobs with no chemicals.  Plus, no paper towel was wasted, just wash and re-use!  Get E-Cloth 2 Glass & Polishing Cloth

Deep Clean Mop

I’ve had this mop for over a year and a half and it’s been awesome.  I used to have a Shark steam mop.  It pushes out really hot steam that cleans your floors.  However, I learned that steam can actually get under your wood floors and get moldy.  I then was on the hunt for something else and found the Deep Clean Mop.

This mop uses a microfiber cloth to clean the floors.  It attached to the mop with velcro.  You just get the microfiber cloth wet and then it cleans your floors getting rid of 99% of the bacteria.  It is so easy to use!  I just throw it in the washer after use.  I also will spray some Branch Basics All Purpose Cleaner on the floor as I mop for added benefit.  My floors look clean and feel clean!  Get it here! 

Natural Scour Pads

Scrub brushes and scour pads can really load up on germs quick.  Most people don’t change out their scrub brush or pad.  The germs and bacteria can build up over time, even parasites.  

My friend Steph from @stephdufordlifestyle shared with me a tip that she does and I’ve been hooked ever since!  You buy a large pack of natural scour pads and cut each up into 6 or 8 squares. Then just use one new square for each day and throw away the old one at the end of the day.  No more harboring bacteria or through a new sponge each day. Steph uses a new cut up pad for each meal as she has multiple allergies in her house so this is not only for sanitation but also safety purposes.  

I don’t have any family allergies so I just use one square per day.  Scotch Brite Natural Scour pads is what I use and I buy them off of Amazon for added convenience. These scour pads are made from 50% agave plant and packaging is 100% recycled. I used to buy the Twist scour pads but I can’t seem to find them in bulk anymore.  So I’ve resorted to the Scotch Brite Natural Scour pads for now since they come in a pack of 12.  I don’t have to buy them for several months after. Get them here! 

Best Natural Cleaning Products

branch basics
I have found the very best household cleaners – and they all offer something a little different while still being effective.

Branch Basics Household Cleaner

This is the cleaner I have most often in our home. I love that it can literally clean anything and everything!  From counters, bathrooms, floors, to my kid’s carseats- it does it all.  It doesn’t have a weird scent either.  It really doesn’t smell like much to me.

You buy their concentrate that comes in a liter sized bottle and then make all the cleaning formulas. So there’s an all- purpose cleaner, a glass cleaner, bathroom cleaner, and laundry.  I use the all-purpose cleaner and laundry the most.  It cleans everything so well without the harmful chemicals.  I also have their Oxygen Boost as well.  This is a great grit to use to help boost the effectiveness of the concentrate.  You can add it to your laundry cycles, as a scrub for toilets and sinks, help with stains- so many uses.  It’s so helpful! Check out my full review here.  Use code: gurlgonegreen to save 15% off Branch Basics starter kits (excluding the Trial Kit). Get Branch Basics here!

Force of Nature Cleaner

This is another product I always have in my house.  I wanted to clarify a key distinction between Force of Nature and Branch Basics.  Force of Nature is a disinfectant, while Branch Basics is a soap.  They do two totally different things. I think they are the perfect compliment to each other. I always use Branch Basics first to clean with and then Force of Nature after to disinfect. Force of Nature can’t be used as a laundry detergent, like Branch Basics or hand soap.  It’s meant to disinfect. So once the surface has been cleaned with Branch Basics, I will then spray on Force of Nature and let it sit for 10 minutes. Then come back and wipe down.

I use it to disinfect anything from countertops, toilet seats, floors, toys, makeup brushes, steering wheels, toothbrush heads, as an air freshener- especially in trash cans, shoes- really anything you want to disinfect.  

The Force of Nature formula is made using three ingredients, water, salt and vinegar.  I am no chemist, but how it is explained by Force of Nature is that you place all 3 ingredients in the electrolyzer. The electricity breaks down the water and salt molecules so that their elements can form 2 new ingredients: hypochlorous acid and sodium hydroxide. It is the vinegar that makes the environment ideal for this to happen by keeping the pH at just the right level. Check out my full review here to learn more.  Get Force of Nature here and use code GURLGONEGREEN40 to save 40% off their bundles!

Thieves Household Cleaner 

I’ve been loving this all purpose cleaner.  I use it for my countertops, floors, bathrooms, dusting- really anything!  I love that it not only gets things shiny but actually is disinfecting them as well.  It makes everything smell fresh and clean too.  You get a bottle of the concentrate and then make your spray.  It has lasted me so long!  I still have half the bottle left and I use it for everything.  I bought the bottle in February and it’s now May. This does have a scent, so if you like something unscented I would get the Branch Basics.  They’re similar but without a scent.  Check it out here!


This is another product that I always have on hand. It works great at acting like a scrub for toilets, sinks, or anywhere I need a little abrasive. It also works great at getting quartz countertops white again if I have a berry stain or tumeric that spills.  I just make a paste of water and Bonami and it lifts the stain.  I’ve used this on outdoor furniture, play sets- so many uses.  It’s a must!  Get it here.

FAVES: a DIY natural dish soap, to my favorite dishwasher detergent and silicone scrub brush.

Dirty Labs Dishwasher Detergent + Booster

Dirty Labs is the best non toxic dishwasher detergent in my opinion for a couple reasons.  First, the ingredients are clean but it also actually cleans your dishes- they come out sparkling and streak free!  Even food that was stuck on- it doesn’t mess around.  The second reason is they really take sustainability to the next level with their packaging.  The container is made out of recycled cardboard and there are no plastic pouches involved. They really have thought of everything. Get them here!

Branch Basics

Branch Basics wins for the best non toxic dish soap. If you aren’t familiar with Branch Basics, you can make all of your cleaning products from their one concentrate – making it so convenient. And while up front the concentrate may seem more expensive, when you see how little of it you need to use it is actually quite affordable. Not to mention it is super effective! Use code gurlgonegreen to save 15% off all Starter Kits (excludes the Trial Kit). Get Branch Basics here!

Simple Dish Soap Recipe from Live Simply Blog

This dish soap recipe is my fave!  It’s so easy to make-literally takes a minute, it’s so effective, and it’s toxin free!  Plus, you’re going to save a ton of money, since you’re not buying it pre-made.  The recipe uses Sal Suds from Dr. Bronner’s and love it.  I also use it for cleaning my floors sometimes when I want a little soap.  For the full dish soap recipe head to Live Simply’s Blog here!

My favorite natural laundry stain remover and dryer balls instead of fabric sheets.

Laundry Detergent

A couple thoughts on natural laundry detergent.  I’ve found different water can effect how well a natural laundry detergent works.  Just keep that in mind.  Also, if you’re used to using conventional detergents that have so much fragrance in them it knocks you over, be warned that these will NOT be the same.  Your clothes might not even smell fresh to you for the first few times because you’re used to synthetic fragrances.

Synthetic fragrance is so strong and can mask a multitude of things.  But here’s the thing- it’s completely unnatural and you’re going to have to retrain yourself when it comes to what smells fresh and clean.  So don’t give up!  Give it time.  If you really want some more “smell” to your clothes.  Add some pure essential oil drops to some wools dryer balls and add them to your dryer.  I’m so used to not having synthetic fragrance around that I can smell it a mile away.   Just be aware and don’t throw in the towel.  You may just need to retrain your nose to what real scent is!  Check out my blog post on artificial fragrance and perfume below- it will make you realize you don’t want to be near synthetic fragrance in anyway.

I love using this for getting toilet bowls white and removing stains from tile.  You just mix a little with water to form a paste and add it on.  I leave it for a while and then come back and scrub it off.  You can add it to laundry loads to keep things extra fresh, which works especially great for laundry that is extra soiled.  It’s my new favorite cleaning product!  It’s the natural alternative to Oxi Clean I tell people.  Get it here! 


I’ve tried a couple other soap nut brands over the years, but these by far were the best ones I have used.  They really do work!  I know it looks different than a traditional laundry detergent but I’m telling you, they will not only clean your clothes but get them smelling fresh too!  These are also a great budget friendly option too and really one of the most natural ways to wash your clothes since they are literally using dried fruit shells. Get it here!

Molly’s Suds Liquid Laundry Detergent

This laundry detergent worked so well.  I did get the Citrus Grove scent but it’s not powerful at all.  Their scents are made from a combination of essential oils and plant essences.  They don’t allow any petrochemicals, solvents, dyes or pesticides in their fragrances.  

My clothes and towels smell fresh and clean and there was no residue left on them.  Even the workout clothes smelled great!  It worked well on getting my younger kiddos clothes clean as well.  I would definitely recommend this and will purchase again. It feels like a traditional/conventional liquid detergent that I know many are used to but doesn’t have any of the sketchy ingredients. Get it here!

Thieves Laundry Detergent

I’ve fallen hard for this laundry detergent!  It works so well.  I had my eye on it for a while and kept putting it off because of the price tag.  It retails for around $40 for 32 oz.  I knew that wouldn’t last me long.  But then my friend filled me in on a secret.  You actually dilute the formula into three 32 oz containers!  Which had me sold.  

I can’t recommend this enough if you’ve been searching for a natural laundry detergent that gets your clothes smelling fresh and clean.  It gets all the grubby clothes, plus my hubs workout clothes smelling so good.  They use enzymes and the power of Thieves essential oil to clean the clothes.  Get it here! Also, I am not a sales rep for them but my friend Steph Duford is.  She introduced me to Young Living and so if you do buy it, please buy it from her!  Her # is 22470440.  Thank you!

Branch Basics Laundry Detergent

I really love using Branch Basics laundry detergent.  The ingredients are great and it actually cleans my clothes. It doesn’t have any scent either. It’s great for kids and baby clothes too.  Plus, you can easily make it with their concentrate making it a more budget friendly option in the long run.  Can’t recommend it enough! Get it here and use code gurlgonegreen to save 15% off all starter kits (excluding the Trial Kit)!

Puracy Laundry Stain Remover

This is hands down the best stain remover I’ve ever found!  It works so well.  At the end of the day my kid’s clothes can look pretty gnarly.  This keeps them in tip top shape.  I spray it on, let it sit for an hour and then use some water to scrub and get the stain out.  As good as new!  If you don’t want to wait for the stain remover to set in, no problem.  I’ve often just sprayed it on and rubbed it in the stain.  It takes a little more elbow grease sometimes but comes out!  I’ve also used this on my carpet and it works great too.

I’ve had people ask me about the ingredients before because EWG doesn’t rate it as good.  Remember EWG is a computer system and can’t take into consideration all of the things.  This is something they missed.  Read it here.  Get the stain remover on Amazon here!

Wool Dryer Balls

Say goodbye to fabric softener and fabric sheets.  Literally one of the worst things you can use in your house!  Filled with toxic chemicals that lead to depression, central nervous system disorder, headaches, dizziness and vomiting.  Check out Dr. Axe’s full article here on the dangers of fabric sheets and fabric softeners.  If you want your clothes to be static free and have a fresh smell, add some wool dryer balls to your dryer.  Add a few drops off essential oil to each wool dryer ball.  I like Branch Basics Wool Dryer Balls here!

Aleavia Hand Wash
Aleavia’s Hand Wash is microbiome friendly and so gentle!

Aleavia Hand Wash

I was so excited when Aleavia launched this. It doesn’t dry out my hands and isn’t stripping them of the beneficial bacteria.  It is microbiome friendly like all of their other products. The scent is so fresh and love how soothing and gentle it is. Use code GGG15 to save 15% off you Aleavia order. Get it here!

Follain Everything Soap

I’ve been using Follain’s Everything Soap for years now.  It comes in Lemongrass and Lavender. I prefer the Lemongrass, smells so good without being overwhelming. I’ve received compliments on the soap when people come over. I buy the liter sizes and then just fill up glass bottles I bought from Amazon.  Works great! Get it here.

Kosmatology Foaming Hand Soap

I LOVE this hand soap!  Best organic, natural hand soap I’ve tried…hands down.  I’ve struggled with finding a hand soap.  It either wasn’t pure, or didn’t foam.  This baby does it all, and has the best ingredients.  Not to mention, it doesn’t dry out my hands!  Everyone needs this in your kitchen and bathroom…trust me.  They have them in several scents-they all smell good!   Buy it here!

    My product choice from E Cloth USA would be the Glass Polishing Cloth. Wonderful post Suzi, I’ve been researching what best to use in my home for cleaning as I am a new home owner and want a fresh, natural and healthy beginning. It is wonderful to hear your methods and know more products! Thank you for this.

  2. Kim

    Thanks for sharing! I’ve been cleaning my sink with lemons and baking soda/vinegar lol, but I’d love to try e-cloth’s Kitchen Dynamo along with our natural cleaners!

  3. Gloria

    Would love to try out the dusting glove & the kitchen/bathroom washing up pad from e-cloth. Thanks for all your informative posts.

    Stainless steel cloth 🙂

  5. Annie

    Awesome tips and recommendations! Quick questions:
    1) for the first laundry powder, do you have to use warm/hot water? I wash everything in cold (energy saving) and have heard that some natural detergent, especially the ones using soap nuts work best with warm/hot water. I currently use Charlie’s and it works pretty well with cold water and Nelly’s for brightener. Will be Checking out Molly’s soon too.
    2) for the soapnut (eco nuts), I read some of the reviews saying that you need to use warm/hot water, are you finding that?

    3) the link to the bleach alternative is linked to the Shark steam Mop 😛 I found it using Bing, but thought you might want to update it 🙂

    Thanks again!

    • Suzi

      Hi Annie! Thanks for the heads up about the link-I changed it.I use both warm,hot and cold on both of the laundry detergents. It depends on what I’m washing. I haven’t used either of those detergents you mentioned but I’ll look into them. Yes, I’ve heard that about soapnuts too. I haven’t found it to be true for me. I wash some things on cold and some on warm or hot as I mentioned and haven’t noticed a difference either way. For me I always wash my towels on warm or hot…haha it’s the clean freak in me that thinks they’re not clean unless they’re washed on hot! Not as good for the environment but I everything else I do is pretty environmentally friendly

      • Annie

        LOL! Thanks so much! Appreciate the feedback. I’m going to give the nuts a try as I’ve been really curious about them for a while. If they don’t work as well for me, I’ll give the powder a try 🙂 What do you use for brightening? BTW, since you use essential oils, I LOVE adding a few drops of lemon oils to my laundry. They come out smelling amazing and it takes away any yucky smell the wash might have. Bonus, I have found my washing machine to be cleaner too. 🙂 Thanks again for a great list!

  6. jane

    hi suzi,
    for the e-cloth wash up pad, do you really follow their directions and only use water to wash all your dishes? or do you use organic dish soap? i understand their products gets rid of 99% bacteria, but i still….makes me curious a bit

  7. Susie @ Pins and Procrastination

    Thanks so much for featuring my dishwasher detergent- I’m glad you liked it! I love your cleaning tips and I definitely agree with most of them.

    • Suzi

      Of course! It’s the best recipe I’ve tried. Plus, it lasts me forever. I now need to follow you on Pinterest 🙂

  8. Kristy

    This post is great timing, thanks for all the great info–I’ve been wanting to try Buckaroo Organics Laundry Detergent! I’m having a baby this summer and am wondering if you can use the Buckaroo for your kids laundry or if you only recommend the Molly Suds sensitive version? Thanks!

    • Suzi

      Yeah, I definitely think it’s great to use Buckaroo for kid’s clothes too!

  9. Monika

    Have you tried Branch Basics cleaning products? Nontoxic, effective, and versatile. (I have no affiliation with the company; I just like the products. Thought it might be something you’d like to try.)

    • Suzi

      Yes, I have heard of them- thank you!

  10. Hannah M.

    Hi Suzi! What washing soda do you use for your bleach alternative?

  11. Kim

    Hi Suzi,

    For an all around household cleaner do you prefer Thieves or Branch Basics?


    • sean swope

      Thieves! 🙂

  12. ashley

    Out of ECOS oxi-bright whitener, Molly’s Suds oxygen whitener, and the live simply homemade bleach alternative, which is your FAV for whitening clothes? I mostly need it for toddler stains and hubby’s work shirts. I’ve tried molly’s but am debating if I should buy again or if one of your other recs is better. Thank you! AMAZING post – will be sharing 🙂

  13. Amy

    On the list of ingredients to avoid, it says sodium hydroxide, but one of the all-purpose cleaners and disinfectants you rave about has that ingredient in it. The Force of Nature says it changes it’s chemicals to hypochlorous acid and sodium hydroxide once electrolyzed, so would that actually mean that we should avoid it?

    • Suzi

      Hi Amy,

      It’s all about concentrations. It’s on the list to avoid because in conventional products the concentration is way too high! 1-5%. Force of Nature contains a tiny concentration of just 0.0000003% (not toxic). In all-purpose cleaners, typical concentration levels are from 1-5% (3 million to 17 million times the concentration as in Force of Nature).
