Eco-friendly cleaning products provide a viable alternative to “Standard” products on the market. These products differ from standard products in terms of ingredients, biodegradability, and safety.

Pros: Ingredients that are mostly natural in origin. Some of these ingredients include lactic acid, citric acid, and enzymes. Eco-friendly products are also less likely to aggravate allergies and respiratory conditions like asthma or cause skin reactions unless you’re allergic to certain plants and oils that might be found in the ingredients.

Cons: Eco friendly products simply cost more and are harder to find suitable for all cleaning categories. The only specific product that can’t readily be replaced with green products is bleach. However, you can get the same results with other green products.
