Grunge Buster ~ Full Circle Home

Spring cleaning has been in full swing for the last month. We have been trying green tools and environmentally friendly cleaners left and right to bring you the best. Our favorite tool for the shower has been the Grunge Buster, a grout and tile brush by, Full Circle Home. The bamboo handle on this cleaning tool is perfect for scrubbing tile and that always hard to clean grout. The brush itself is made out of recycled plastic and has softer outer bristles for the tile and tougher inner bristles for the grout. Simply stand it on its end when you’re done for it to dry quick and discourage bacteria buildup. We have a rectangle sink in the office and at home, this brush is also perfect for cleaning out the creases then tend to collect buildup in this shape of sink.  We give this eco-fabulous, sustainable tool our green stamp approval.  You can secure your Grout Buster through Amazon or on Full Circle Home for a steal, at $6.

Rosemary & Peppermint Countertop Cleanser ~ Sapadilla

Every countertop in our house is clean and sparkling from this fabulous plant-based cleanser made by the very green, Sapadilla.  This eco-friendly company uses alkyl polyglucoside, a naturally derived and highly effective sugar as the cleaning agent in all of their products.  The rest of the ingredients are made from renewable resources like coconut, palm and corn oil, as well as 100% pure essential oil blends without synthetic additives.  The aroma of the Rosemary & Peppermint is fresh, clean, light, and probably the best smelling cleaning product I’ve ever used.  Sapadilla, makes their products in small batches to guarantee quality and consistency here in the beautiful Pacific Northwest.  The boutique company never tests on poor little animals and is free of harsh or questionable chemicals.  If we haven’t convinced you already, they contribute 1% of all revenues to 1% For The Planet.

Side note:  The Full Circle Home Cellulose Cloths are the perfect tool to use with this amazing product.

Lean & Mean Scrub Brush ~ Full Circle Home

I am loving Full Circle Home’s Lean and Green scrub brush.  I used this brush to clean our outdoor teak furniture.  The handle was incredibly comfortable and easier to maneuver than the ‘typical’ handle brush.  The tough bristles did the job quickly and effortlessly.  The Lean  and Mean stands up on its end for quick drying.  Made out of post consumer and post industrial recycled plastic, the unique design helps to prevent bacteria buildup.  We have hooks in our home and office to keep things from piling up.  Full Circle Home is on the same page we are, they placed a convenient hole on end of the brush to hang it up and store.  Don’t fret if you have a real mess that needs a scrub, the lean mean scrub brush can be washed safely in the dishwasher.   Pick yours up at Amazon for $13.

Cellulose Cleaning Cloths ~ Full Circle Home

Full Circle Home sells these eco-fabulous cellulose cleaning cloths to replace your old dated and wasteful paper towels.  These reuseable cloths are plant-based and biodegradable, but sturdy enough to be freshened up in the dishwasher or in boiling water.  I use them in my office kitchen to wipe up annoying coffee spills and to do the dishes.   We use them at home too on the counters, for spills, wiping dishes down, everywhere.   They are sold in pack with three cheerful colors; sun, sea, and a scarlet.  The cloths dry like any sponge but with a dab of water they come to life again.  Be green and save green, these handy cloths are only $6 on Amazon.

Einshine Shines

Einshine, is best in stainless steel cleaner and polish on the market.  This ecofriendly cleaner and steel polish eliminates all of those pesky fingerprints from your sleek appliances in a cinch.  I use this gluten-free hypoallergenic spray with my microfiber cloth to quickly clean and polish every machine in my office and home kitchen.  Better Life products are never tested on animals and safe for waterways and marine life.  It is so refreshing to smell natural chamomile and lavender and not the harsh chemicals that are so overpowering in other products.  Einshine make our appliances sparkle and green which is a win for our spaces.

Sparkling Clean Dishes

I have recently gone through an array of ecofriendly dishwasher detergents to bring you the best. Through my at home research Method’s Smarty Dish proved to be the best in removing bits of food and that pesky lip gloss residue.  I did also  notice that the fluid detergents don’t seem to be as effective as the tablets.
