Swapping Out Cleaning Supplies with Grove Collaborative

Almost three years ago, I began my own “journey” to reduce the number of harmful ingredients in my makeup, skincare and cleaning products in our home. I started small and swapped one thing at a time. Today, I want to share a guide for anyone looking to create a cleaner, greener home in small steps in partnership with Grove Collaborative!

The Grove Collaborative is a website that sells natural cleaning products and personal care items and ships them to your door on your preferred delivery schedule. I have been trying it out for the past few months and have found a lot of new favorite products that I’ve never been able to find locally. If you want to try it out you can now and you will get a FREE cleaning essentials kit valued at over $30 with any $20 purchase. Just follow this link and you’ll immediately have these items added to your cart:

  • A Free Grove Glass Spray Bottle
  • A 3 Pack of Grove Cleaning Concentrates (Glass/Tub & Tile/All Purpose)
  • A Two Pack Microfiber

You’ll also get a free trial of their VIP access which means free shipping on anything/everything. Which, cleaning products can weigh a lot so that’s a great benefit! Here are my three tips for getting started with swapping to natural cleaning products: 

1. Stop buying any products that have artificial fragrance (if you check the ingredients and it says ‘fragrance’ or ‘parfum’ it’s probably an artificial fragrance). This small step completely changed my life.

2. Find your own go-to brands. I have found that choosing brands you like and trust is a shortcut to add new items to your routine without feeling like you have to fully research each purchase. In our home, most of my cleaning products are Seventh Generation and now Grove products.

3. Swap one product at a time.

Don’t let yourself feel guilty or overwhelmed. Just swap one thing at a time as you run out of it! This was and is a huge key to my process. Even after three years, I am still making tweaks to the products we buy. And that’s OK!

I firmly believe it’s better to make small steps than no steps at all.

Above are some products I have tried and loved. You can find all of these products at this link. I make a lot of my own cleaning sprays, so these reusable bottles are amazing!I LOVE making my own cleaning sprays either with Grove’s cleaning concentrates or with castile soap and essential oils.

This bamboo brush that bubbles up is so great! You just add soap and water to the bottom of the container and it’s always ready to use.I want to take a minute to share some other things that I have loved from Grove as well (more in the personal care category). I love the brand Babyganics (we use their wipes and their sunscreen as well). Finding clean products for Nova is something I am extremely passionate about. I was shocked to learn that many products made for kids and marketed as “gentle” have very bad scores (I use the Think Dirty app and the EWG website to score products). It freaked me out a bit, but I’ve since found so many amazing companies that make great products for kids! There’s a whole section on Grove for babies and kids.

Jeremy loves and uses this deodorant. I use this cleansing oil. I carry this hand sanitizer spray in my bag. And I absolutely love this sheet mask. I use this soap to add essential oils to my bubble baths in a safe way.
