Cleaning with products with less chemicals gives you the ease of my mind that you’re accomplishing a safe and effective clean without any risk. There are a lot of chemical-free cleaning products on the market these days, or you can be good to the planet and your wallet and make them at home!

If you’re worried that you’re not getting a thorough enough clean without strong chemicals, we have solutions for you. Here are three safe cleaning tips that will help you thoroughly remove bacteria without the need for strong chemicals.


1. Use The Magic of Microfiber

At O-Cedar®, we make it no secret that we are huge fans of microfiber. We use this high-impact material in our most popular cleaning products like the EasyWring™ Spin Mop and the RinseClean™ Spin Mop. Both have earned their clout for their unique benefits, which include mop heads made from microfiber. So what’s so magical about it? It’s made up of billions of tiny fibers that remove over 99% of bacteria with just water* eliminating the need for harsh chemically-based cleaners.


2. DIY Cleaning Solutions: Make Your Own!

To save time vetting safe cleaning products, simply create your own effective cleaning solution using common household ingredients! Vinegar, baking soda, and castile soap are great organic cleaners. Check out our article on how to make organic cleaning sprays for recipes and uses.
