Toxic-free cleaning

Organic bathroom cleaner

Lovely! A fresh cleaned house. Everything smells like lemon or pine cones. But are all those cleaning products actually that healthy? Of course, we all know that most cleaning products are anything but healthy. But during my research I was shocked by the effects of all these fragrant bottles of poison.

One package per day

Research from the University of Bergen (Norway) has shown that the regular use of cleaning sprays is just as harmful to your lungs as the daily removal of a pack of cigarettes. During their research, they followed 6,000 people for twenty years. The study showed that the lung function of women who were busy with cleaning spray on a daily basis was comparable to the lung function of someone who smoked a pack of cigarettes a day for at least ten years.

Dangerous substances

But it’s not just the cleaning sprays that are the culprit. Almost all standard cleaning products are full of hazardous substances. All-purpose cleaners and bathroom cleaners that contain carcinogens, substances that can cause respiratory problems or that affect fertility. In addition, the simultaneous use of cleaning products can also strengthen the effect. And the remains of these types of cleaning products eventually end up in our system through our food, the air, our clothing and through the (ground) water. Not to mention the environmental pollution that all these chemicals cause. Therefore, choose natural cleaning products instead. These clean just as well or even better than chemical cleaning products. In addition, environmentally friendly cleaning products are better for yourself, your family and nature.


You can get started yourself and DIY your own cleaning products. There are plenty of natural cleaning products and with this you can make your own cleaning spray, toilet cleaner or stain remover.

Baking soda is such a real all-rounder. You can really use this for almost anything. Use it as an abrasive, dissolve it in water and use it as an all-purpose cleaner or use it together with vinegar for a clean toilet.

Vinegar is also a multifunctional natural cleaner. Use it as a descaler, to wash the windows or as a fabric softener.

Or use green soap to clean your kitchen, to clean the bathroom or to remove stains.
