We’re becoming more and more environmentally conscious (rightly so), so it seems appropriate that we start thinking of ways to bring natural, organic cleaning into our favourite place in the home: The kitchen. We tried and tested some of Earthsap’s eco-friendly cleaning essentials made with naturally derived, safe, nontoxic and biodegradable ingredients – here’s what we thought.
Tackle grimy surfaces throughout your kitchen with this kitchen cleaner formulated to dissolve grease and grime on all kitchen surfaces, naturally and safely. This cleaner combines naturally derived ingredients for a natural way to get rid of kitchen messes. It’s great on all surfaces, including cooker tops, work surfaces, sinks and tiles. Plus, it has a spray nozzle that makes for faster and easier cleaning … and we love the scents!
