Is it just me, or does cleaning your house (er, apartment, I keep forgetting I haven’t moved yet!) make you feel dirty instead of clean? Stick with me here.. When I clean the counter tops, coffee table, mirrors, etc, I get cleaning supplies all over me. Okay, usually just my hands, but sometimes I can be a big ole klutz. I hate the smell, I hate the feeling. So many harsh chemicals! Have you ever looked at what’s in the cleaning supplies? We’re all overly cautious about what we put into our body, use on our face and hair, but have you ever stopped to think about what you’re cleaning with?
Open Nature Cleaning and Household Products
Just in time for our move (and the spring cleaning that Austin will be doing….), we got a box of new Open Nature™ cleaning and household products. All of the products are dye free and are never tested on animals. The cleaning line includes products that are biodegradable, fragrance free and perfume free, and are certified Safer Choice by the U.S. EPA. All Open Nature paper products are made with 100% recycled paper and are certified by the Sustainable Forestry Initiative. Wow that’s a mouthful.
In case you skimmed over the big words, it means is these products don’t leave you feeling icky as you clean. Speaking from experience, the products work on even the toughest of messes (I never once claimed to be the clean one in my household).
Where to Buy Open Nature Cleaning Supplies
You can grab your own Open Nature household cleaning and care products exclusively at your local Tom Thumb or Albertsons store in the Dallas Fort Worth metroplex. Call me a creature of habit, but I’ve gone to the same Tom Thumb since moving to Dallas four years ago (side note, where did time go?!). If you want to check out my go-to store, put this into your GPS for later… 5809 E Lovers Ln, Dallas, TX 75206. For those of you not in the Dallas Fort Worth metroplex, have no fear, there are stores near you, too! You can visit any of the below stores to pick up products to build your own your spring cleaning tool kit:
Vons / Star Market / Shaw’s / Safeway / Randalls / Pavilions / Jewel-Osco / ACME Markets
Open Nature Products
Open Nature All Purpose Cleaner
We used this to clean up the counter tops in the kitchen and bathroom, as well the doorknobs and outside of the toilet. The cleaner is dye-free, lemon scent (but not too overwhelming), disinfecting and U.S. EPA Design for the environment Certified.
Open Nature Glass and Window Cleaner
Not to state the obvious, but we used this one on our glass coffee table and bathroom mirrors. I’ve had a hard time finding a mirror cleaning that worked well AND didn’t leave a stench behind… found it! This cleaner is non-toxic, lemon scent, biodegradable and US EPA Safer Choice Certified.
Open Nature Paper Towels
These towels are caught between the “heavy duty, I’m not paying this much for paper towels” and the “well, they don’t suck, but they aren’t the greatest”. I have no major complaints about them, but don’t see myself only using one sheet for a clean up. They are made from 100% recycled paper and Sustainable Forestry Initiative Certified Sourcing.
Open Nature Dishwashing Liquid
Honestly, haven’t had a chance to try this soap! Austin told me it worked well though, so we’ll take his opinion on this one. It’s made from biodegradable cleaning agents, dye and is fragrance free.
Open Nature Water Lily & Jasmine Hand Soap
I’m not too picky when it comes to my soaps because I am terrible at using soap in the kitchen (stop with the dirty looks, I KNOW this is a terrible habit), but I really love the smell of this one. It’s made with no phosphates, phthalates, parabens or artificial colors.
