Whether your goal is to decrease the clutter and up the pretty or make a switch to more eco-friendly cleaning products the time is now. Never before have cleaning products been this lust-worthy. Beautiful aesthetics + kind to the earth = we are sold. Here are five reasons to make the switch. Your home (and health) will thank you!

Save time

Busy, busy, busy? Liquid concentrates should be your new best friend! Forget highly specialized cleaning agents (think Lysol for the kitchen and Chlorox for the bathroom). Time to reset, condense, and declutter. Most concentrated cleaners pack a more efficient punch and can be used on multiple surfaces in the home.

Save Space

It goes without saying that if you are condensing five products into one you are freeing up some valuable space. Up the pretty by decanting detergent into big glass jars, or stashing products into baskets. Who says doing laundry has to be a drag!

Save money

This is the most obvious and immediate benefit. Hurrah! Over at HAVEN we do the happy dance and run to Veronica Beard stat. All joking aside, there may be some serious savings to be had. “The price per ounce of a cleaner made from concentrate compared to RTU cleaners can save you as much as half of your yearly cleaning budget,” says Marilee Nelson, co founder of Branch Basics.

Save energy

Less waste is an obvious win for every household. Not only are you reducing the amount of plastic packaging in your home but many claim that the actual production of concentrated cleaners saves natural resources requiring less processing, less labelling, reduced filling of bottles and reduced plastics use. Win win!

Inside and Out

At HAVEN we embrace the holistic philosophy: transform from the inside out. We cross check the products we use against the EWG’s Guide to Healthy Cleaning and it is shocking how easy it is to miss the mark. The good news? With so many clean choices on the market it’s never been easier to make the switch.

The packaging of the  Grove Collaborative  concentrates kit is a home run. Any excuse to swap plastic for glass is a huge win for us. As is the fact the concentrate is made from plant-based ingredients and essential oils. Haven’s favorite scent: lavender and thyme.
