Basic Products You Need
You can purchase products through Earth Concerns Cleaning or support your local store. Products need to be eco-friendly for the health of staff. For health and safety, staff cannot use products containing any amount of chlorine bleach or ammonia.
- All Purpose Soap – or a vegetable-all-based soap like Liquid Dish Soap
- Baking Soda (unless you do not want any scouring in bathtubs and sinks)
- Glass Cleaner – or vinegar and water in a spray bottle
- Toilet Bowl Cleaner – or washing soda – or borax
- Disinfectant Cleaner – or Hydrogen Peroxide (non-chlorine bleach)
- Optional: specialty cleaners, for example, wood floor, oven, stainless steel,…
Hydrogen peroxide can be applied after staff have cleaned the surface with soap and water. Nature Clean Non-Chlorine Liquid Bleach (see product line-up below) is 5% Hyrdogen Peroxide. We do not use chlorine bleach for staff health and the world environment.
Attitude All Purpose Disinfectant Cleaner is a wonderful addition to our product line-up (below), cleaning while disinfecting.
