I make all my own. That is the only way.

i own and operate a cleaning company in naples, fl. we have tried different brands for green cleaning, and a lot of them work up to a point. So far nothing has worked like bleach does, to remove mold or mildew. Normally green cleaners only work on relatively clean areas. Not meant for deep cleaning.
Simple green is good, but could still make you sneaze.
Wow green makes good cleaning products, but a bit on the expensive side.
Same thing for Melaleuca.
But i would recommend these next two products:
1. Snap, which are highly concentrated, so usually you can mix one ounce per gallon, so you don't get exposed to the cleaners, even though most of them are eco-friendly.

2. Lotus Liquid Ozone cleaner. This is a new product we have been using, is a machine that makes water into liquid ozone, and cleans stronger than bleach. I would say it is the only true green product, with absolutely no chemicals that works just as good, if not better than bleach. You can follow this link to my suppliers page, which has more information on how it works.

I hope this information is of help to you.

Try Essential Oils

Answered 9 years ago by artistics


I use Charlie's Soap brand products; they make laundry detergent (HE) both powder and liquid. They also make allpurpose indoor/outdoor cleaner which is wonderful to get stains and spills out of carpets. They have a new kitchen cleaner which I haven't used, but all are green products and the customer service of the company is wonderful! I use Charlie's Soap to wash sheets for my massage therapy, so it helps get oils, lotions, and creams out of materials.

None of the green cleaners I've bought have cleaned as well as Windex with ammonia and the dishwasher detergents get low ratings at Consumer Reports. You can try cleaning with water and a microfiber cloth. I use a product called Nok Out as an odor eliminator and Nok Out Broad Spectrum Disinfectant which are non-toxic and practically odorless. In fact, they recommend applying the odor eliminator to your underarms a couple times a day instead of antiperspirant/deodorant if you don't want those chemicals used on your skin.
