Most of the chemical products we depend on for cleaning and maintaining our homes come with dangerous and toxic ingredients that could result in long term health concerns for the family. Moreover, the manufacture and disposal of these products also contribute greatly to environmental pollution — contaminants in chemical cleaners can pose detrimental effects to water bodies and marine organisms.

But you could make a difference by making conscious decisions for your home. To help you get started, here’s our list of sustainable and eco-friendly home cleaning solutions, all under Rs 800.

1. PureCult Floor Cleaner

The PureCult Floor Cleaner has a no-rinse concentrated formula, and is made using eco-friendly and plant-based ingredients, with natural antimicrobial agents and pure essential oils. It claims to contain no toxic ingredients like sulphates, phosphates, bleach, and ammonia, as well as no artificial colour or fragrance.

An added bonus is the aroma this cleaner will leave your home with — it contains natural fragrances with a blend of geranium and lavender essential oils. These oils also have anti-fungal and bacterial properties.

Review: “This floor cleaner by Pure Cult is a must-try. It is free of all the harsh chemicals and keeps the floor sparkling clean. Also, it smells heavenly, unlike other floor cleaners that smell full of chemicals. I am extremely happy with the quality Pure Cult delivers each time,” writes Moushumi Pal in Amazon reviews.
