Top 5 GREEN Kitchen Cleaners


1. Earthsap Window & Surface Cleaner

This is really the best window cleaner that I have ever used. Usually the window cleaners are so soapy that it takes a HUGE amount of ‘elbow grease’ just to get it streak-free. Not this one!

This glass cleaner cleans with no streaks and is 100% solvent free. It contains no toxic chemicals such as synthetic alcohol, no ammonia which can be a respiratory irritant, and no glycol ethers. There are also no fumes, so with this spray you can actually breathe while cleaning the windows!

It can be used to clean glass, marble, mirrors, steel and other hard surfaces.

How I use it: I spray two times for a window or mirror and wipe with a microfiber cloth. Works like a charm!

2. Earthsap Cleaner and Degreaser

If you ever have greasy, stubborn-to-clean pots in your kitchen, you need this product! Who would have thought that a degreaser can be so efficient without harmful chemicals?

This heavy duty solvent and general cleaner has a great dirt and grease cutting formula. Cleans using only natural extracts while harnessing the full power of nature. This can be used for general cleaning of countertops, appliances, sinks, greasy pots and pans, wall marks, floors, metal, vinyl, linoleum, steel, ceramic and braai grids.

How I use it: Before washing dishes, I just squirt some in the greasy pots, and by the time it’s their turn to be washed, the grease comes off easily! I really like this product as it makes the pots shinier too.

3. Better Earth Cleaning Spray

 This is definitely not a heavy duty product, so please don’t expect Mr.Muscle when using this. The reason I put it on my Top 5, is because I really enjoy it as a counter top cleaner. Just a few sprays is all you need, and it removes coffee stains, and also small messes like tomato sauce.

This fragrant cleaning spray will leave surfaces fresh and clean. Can also be used on glass surfaces. It won’t work for a dirty stove, but it is a really gentle cleaner so you can pretty much try it on anything!

4. Earthsap All Purpose Cleaner Scrub

 Now this is the right product for a greasy stove top! It works very much like the traditional handy andy we all know. It degreases and removes obstinate stains without scratching. It also removes mould and mildew. It cleans and degreases efficiently using only natural ingredients that do not pose any health risks. What makes it different from mainstream products, is that it is kind to your hands and sensitive skin due to its plant extracts.

It can be used for sinks, tubs, pots, pans, counter and stove tops and steel.

How I use it: I use a squirt or two for the stove, and wipe with a damp cloth.

5. Better Earth Dishwashing Liquid

Many people have trouble finding a “green” dishwashing liquid that actually works. I can highly recommend this. It’s strong dishwashing formula that foams nicely and cleans your dishes until their sparkly! What I like about it is that it is kind to the hands, but still tough enough to degrease.
The smell is so fresh and uplifting, it makes the crappy job of washing dishes a little bit better!

How I use it: Squirt a generous amount into hot running water.
