AD/PR Products – The following products have been gifted to me in exchange for a blog post. You can find my disclaimer here.

Although not everyone enjoys cleaning, it is an essential part of life. Often people think that being eco-friendly is expensive, but as I’ve said before, being eco-friendly can save you money! Eco-friendly cleaning products tend to be cheaper than other sustainable products. Plus, there are so many benefits to them that I will discuss in this post.

What is eco-friendly cleaning?

I don’t know if there is an official definition, so I’m just going by what I believe.

Eco-friendly cleaning is when you are using a sustainably sourced product that is vegan, natural-derived ingredients and hasn’t been tested on animals. By using eco-friendly cleaning products, they should reduce single-use plastic and your carbon footprint.

Introducing an eco-friendly cleaning brand: NeerSol cleaning tabs

Did you know that most cleaning products contain 90% water? Although water is essential, it is incredibly hard to store, energy-intensive and heavy to carry which rapidly increases its carbon footprint.

To get around this NeerSol have created cleaning tablets that you add to a bottle you already own and just add water! Currently, their 3 categories are all-purpose cleaning, bathroom cleaning and glass cleaning.

How does it work?

The process of making up your bottle of NeerSol cleaning spray is super easy.

  1. Find out how many ml your bottle will contain.
  2. Work out how many tablets you will need: 350ml → 1 tablet, 700ml → 2 tablets
  3. Put the number of tablets you require into your bottle.
  4. Add lukewarm water.
  5. Wait until it has dissolved.
  6. Start using your new cleaning spray!

What are the benefits of NeerSol cleaning products?

Better for the environment

This is an obvious one, but what I haven’t told you so far is how NeerSol products benefit the environment. Apart from reducing single-use plastic.

  • They don’t test on animals
  • The products come in a recyclable paper box
  • Plant-based
  • 100% natural essential oils that aren’t overpowering
  • Supports 2 of the UN development goals: 12 → responsible consumption and production 14 → life below water
  • Fit through your letterbox
  • Reduces your carbon footprint

Less clutter

I’m not saying become a minimalist if you don’t want to, but buying NeerSol products will decrease the amount of clutter you have in your house. The small box of tablets will take up hardly any room compared to your stocked up plastic bottles of cleaner. Cleaning is so much easier if you have less clutter as there will be less dust. Additionally, I always find that I am less stressed when there is less clutter.

Fewer chemicals

This is a massive benefit of using an eco-friendly cleaning product! NeerSol products do not contain parabens, phosphates, ammonia, triclosan, VOCs and EDTA. This means that they are so much safer to use around the house as they don’t contain these hazardous and toxic chemicals.

It’s not very healthy to be breathing in harsh chemicals all the time, especially for the elderly, children and even pets!

Saves money in the long-run

I know I go on about it a bit, but being eco-friendly can truly save you so much money. 1 litres worth of NeerSol product costs £1.75. Compared that to other eco-friendly brands that cost between £2.80 and £5, NeerSol is a lot cheaper. Plus a well-known non-eco-friendly cleaning company charges between £1.70 and £2.50.

Choosing the eco-friendly option is only 5p more and has all these incredible benefits.

Makes cleaning more fun

I had to include this benefit because let’s be honest, cleaning is more fun when you have helped make the product. Maybe it’s the child in me, but adding water to a tablet is pretty cool. Plus, the tablets are coloured which means the liquid is coloured – does it get better than that?

I have been using the glass tablets for a few weeks now and the spray worked really well! If you can, please support their crowdfunding campaign* so that even more people can be eco-friendly when they clean.

Best wishes, Cx
