Are your cleaning product safe and environmentally friendly?
Mrs Martins Microbes and I collaborated on this article to help you kick-start your change to more environmentally responsible cleaning-products. Follow the instructions at the end of this article to win a complete starter pack of her cleaning products for your home. This giveaway is sponsored by Mrs Martins and Microbes, but her products are my personal first choice of cleaning products for my home.
How many of the products you use in your home has large danger signs on the back of the bottle? These are the products you wash your dishes with, clean your oven with and throw all over your floors and every surface in your house. With many of these products, the smell alone is enough to make you sick.
It doesn’t matter whether you live in the bush or in the city, a bio-degradable, safe cleaning products stays the best option.
We, the people of Southern Africa, love the great outdoors and nature. We are passionate about conservation and fume at the thought of rhino poaching, but we sometimes forget that nature conservation starts at home. It starts with the sustainable use of our natural resources.
Mrs Martin’s Microbes are responsible, intelligent and safe!
So how does it work? An active indigenous bacteria produce enzymes that can clean dirt. Please note that the bacteria are indigenous to the Southern part of Africa, this means that it will also work in countries neighbouring South Africa, like Mozambique, where I am already using it.
It is biodegradable, environmentally friendly and contains no harmful chemicals.
My personal favourite is her product, Odour. In a farmhouse, there is always something that could possibly smell. I use it on our cat litter between changes, on my laundry basket with cloth nappies when it has to stand a day or two, where my toddler spills something that could smell, like milk and just about everywhere. This past summer with all the rain made my couches smell mouldy. I sprayed lightly with Odour and the smell was gone. It has a light and subtle fragrance and works really well.
These days there are many eco-friendly products on the market. What made Mrs Martins stand out for me is the competitive pricing. Green products are often much more expensive than their mainstream counterparts. This is not the case with Mrs Martin’s Microbes, go and look for yourself!
