We extensively researched all aspects of the cleaning products available and their ingredients and saw the need for a cleaning solution that was effective, yet gentle on the environment and ourselves.
If you are starting out on your journey towards detoxifying your home, welcome! We hope the information below gives you a good idea of why it is so important to make the switch to natural, nontoxic cleaners as well as your options. If you are simply keen to know more about Cleanz and its effective yet gentle nature, please read on.
Studies have shown using soap and warm water to be as effective as most conventional household cleaners. Studies have also proven that long term exposure to chemicals found in conventional cleaners can lead to a plethora of health risks.
Unlike traditional cleaners, natural, nontoxic cleaning products like Cleanz do not leave harmful substances in the air for you to inhale. With products like Cleanz, the air stays unpolluted so you don’t have to worry about chemical poisoning, skin irritation and respiratory infections.
As well as keeping the air safe and clean, Cleanz removes bacteria from surfaces instead of killing it. Bacteria adapt and grow more resilient against anti-bacterial cleaners, so instead of getting rid of them all, antibacterial cleaners potentially create stronger strains of bacteria.
Importantly, the dangers of children encountering nontoxic cleaning products over conventional ones, are far less.
In terms of the environment, the products we clean with go down our drains or evaporate into the air around us. Conventional cleaners contain harmful substances that end up in our waterways and can turn more toxic, affecting our water quality, harming marine life, and reentering the food chain.
If not our waterways, chemicals evaporate and turn into volatile organic compounds that degrade air quality and contribute to outdoor smog.
With nontoxic products like Cleanz, you know what you’re using at home is equally as friendly on the environment as it is on your family.
Most household cleaners come in 500ml bottles. Cleanz comes in a 1litre bottle along with 4 other small bottles for you to divide the solution amongst, depending on its use (bathroom/glass/all-purpose/foaming cleanser). These small spray bottles are for permanent use. By using a solution like Cleanz, you are saving up to 16 plastics bottles from going to landfill each time you purchase the 1litre bottle. Much of today’s plastic waste ends up in the ocean as tiny particles that marine life digest and then in turn we digest. So, the fewer bottles that go to landfill, the better.
At Cleanz we offer a nontoxic cleaning solution that does all the work for you, simply add water and you are good to go. However, there is also the option of making your own natural cleaners by using everyday ingredients that you find in your kitchen cupboard.
We understand that trying to find a cleaning product that is effective but gentle on your family and the environment, can be overwhelming and confusing. To keep it straightforward, it pays to remember that traditional cleaners are laden with harsh substances; even products that claim to be green or eco-friendly often have toxins in them. So, to ensure you are doing the best by your home, health and the environment, always choose a natural, non-toxic cleaner.

In this blog we look at this really murky pool of information about microfiber, its Positives, Negatives, the alternatives, and how green those alternatives are.
When I say murky, I really mean really murky. You can find a bunch of info saying how bad microfibre is, written by companies that promote/ sell alternatives, and then when one starts digging into the alternatives, you learn that they are not so squeaky clean either.
We're well aware of the health risks linked to heavy metals, pesticides, and herbicides. However, many traditional household and personal care products harbor less-discussed hazardous ingredients that contribute to the toxic load in our bodies. This accumulation of toxins, termed “body burden,” can potentially disrupt hormones, compromise the immune system, and heighten sensitivity to allergens.
Here are some straightforward yet impactful ways to reduce your family's exposure to toxins this year:
