We use only what you need to clean your home: a gentle formula of baking soda and vegetable soap made with organic coconut oil. The scented version is made with organic essential oils—no mysterious “fragrance” blends that contain undisclosed ingredients.

Our Gentle Home Cleaning Scrub is effective on most hard surfaces, including stainless steel, porcelain, ceramic tiles, and stovetops. It is not intended for use on natural, sealed stone, or non-stick cookware.

All of our ingredients are MADE SAFE® Certified, Leaping Bunny certified cruelty-free, and vegan. We list every ingredient, including scents, on the front label so you can see what’s in your cleaner.

Our plastic-free cleaning powder is packaged in a recyclable paper and steel canister.

Available in unscented and peppermint tea tree.

Net wt. 12 oz. (340 g).

Start by wetting the surface you want to clean with warm water. Then sprinkle on a small amount of cleaning powder and scrub the surface using a wet rag, sponge, dish cloth, or brush. The baking soda in the powder acts as a mild abrasive that helps scrub away tough stains. Once the area is clean, rinse the surface with warm water to remove any remaining powder and wipe dry using a clean rag or cloth.

Our Gentle Home Cleaning Scrub works best on hard surfaces that are resistant to scratches and other abrasions, such as stainless steel appliances, stovetops, and porcelain and ceramic tiles. It is not safe for use on natural or sealed stone or non-stick cookware. We strongly recommend testing the cleaner on a hidden spot with treated or delicate surfaces such as stained wood, painted walls, and fabrics.

The powder is 100% biodegradable and septic-safe, making it safe for use in tubs, sinks, and toilets.

Our All-Purpose Home Cleaner spray is a perfect pair with our cleaning powder. These solid soap refill tablets dissolve in water to create an effective all-purpose cleaning spray without the need for plastic bottles. It works great on many surfaces that are too delicate for the Gentle Home Cleaner Scrub, such as natural stone countertops and wood floors.

Ingredient disclosure and transparency is the cornerstone of our business. We list every ingredient on the front label of each product and here on our website. Our Ingredients page lists the technical name, chemical identification (CAS number), country of origin, and additional details for every ingredient we use.

You'll never see the word "fragrance" on our ingredient labels. This catch-all term allows companies to hide ingredients that are potentially harmful to the health of people and the planet. In the US, hundreds of ingredients in the "fragrance" family have never been tested for their impact. Every product is available in an unscented base formula. We also offer products scented with organic essential oils. 

Sodium Bicarbonate, also known as baking soda, is an odor neutralizer and a gentle abrasive that is effective at removing tough stains and dirt.

Our vegan, plant-based Vegetable Soap is made from organic coconut oil that is processed into soap, resulting in the following ingredients:

Sodium Cocoate is the chemical name of organic coconut oil that is saponified, or 'made into soap’. It's the chemical that grabs onto both dirt and water to do the cleaning.

Glycerin is chemically a type of alcohol and is naturally created when the oil is converted into soap. We do not add any additional glycerin to our soap. 100% of the glycerin present is a byproduct of the soapmaking process and is vegan and cruelty-free.

Organic Cocos Nucifera, or organic coconut oil, is left in the soap after conversion to sodium cocoate. This is because we use sodium hydroxide, or lye, in the conversion process, and leaving excess oil ensures there is no remaining lye in the finished product. Our coconut soap has only a very small amount of excess oil, so it is designed to get tough jobs done without leaving oil behind.

Water is used in the soapmaking process to dissolve the lye and help evenly mix the oils and lye together for a complete saponification reaction. After saponification is complete, the water evaporates. There is only about 5% water in the finished soap, making it more shelf stable than a liquid soap that would require a preservative due to the high percentage (about 60%) of water.

Organic Mentha Piperita Leaf Oil, or organic peppermint essential oil, is a scented oil derived from peppermint leaves. It is a natural, plant-based alternative to synthetic fragrance blends and adds a festive, invigorating scent to our cleaning powder.

Organic Melaleuca Alternifolia Oil, or organic tea tree essential oil, is a scented oil derived from tea tree leaves. It is a natural, plant-based alternative to synthetic fragrance blends and adds a medicinal, woody scent to our cleaning powder.
