Once I started to care more about what I put in and on my body, it was only natural for me to start wondering about what I breathe into my body.
First I stopped using a plug-in air freshener filled with toxic chemicals last year as I am certain it was making my throat sore. I now only use natural plant based scented candles and essential oil incense sticks instead.
Next I started to worry about the surface sprays I regularly used around the home, which had a pretty noticeable chemical smell. It just can't be good to breathe these in several times a day.
I'd also much rather my toddler and baby weren't breathing in any unnecessary chemicals too. I began to change over to more natural plant-based cleaning products a few months back and now wherever possible we only use non-toxic and plant-based cleaning products in our home. They are usually a little pricier, but I believe it's worth it to protect our health and the environment.
After all, once we have used them in our home they are washed off into the environment or end up in landfill causing harm to wildlife, polluting land, air, soil and water. Using chemical laden surface sprays at home is bad for us and the planet.
Having become more eco-conscious with my cleaning routine at home, I was very keen to review Eco Diva's Ultimate Eco Cleaner when they approached me.
Eco Diva eco-friendly cleaner review
The best thing about the Eco Diva Ultimate Cleaner is the fact it comes in a concentrated bottle. One bottle of concentrate makes 14 whole spray bottles. There's no need to worry about buying cleaner for months, plus you also reduce plastic production and consumption. This is so much more environmentally friendly and the way all similar products should be made going forward.
It does seem quite expensive at first to buy the starter pack or the concentrate, but when you think about how many bottles you get, it's actually cheaper in the long run. I was easily spending £2-£3 on other environmentally friendly surface cleaners, so up to £42 for 14 bottles. This means I can make a saving of at least 50% by switching to Eco Diva, whilst also benefiting my health and the environment.
The ingredients are:
I really can't see any reason not to make the switch!
