Shipping calculated at checkout.

Eliminate waste with our bucket return program.

Our Gentle Home Cleaning Scrub is a people- and planet-friendly cleaning powder made with safer ingredients and eco-friendly packaging.

This gentle cleaner is just as effective as big name powder cleaners but is bleach-free, chlorine-free, dye-free, synthetic fragrance-free, and preservative-free.


Our zero-waste cleaning powder bucket is an eco-friendly option for heavy cleaners. We send you a full 5-gallon bucket of our concentrated cleaning powder—the equivalent of more than 53 Gentle Home Cleaning Scrub canisters! 

The price of each bucket includes shipping to your home and return shipping to our factory. Keep the box it comes in and send the empty bucket back with the included pre-paid shipping label.

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.

Due to the size and weight of these buckets, there are no refunds or returns on these buckets. We strongly advise trying our Laundry Starter Bundle or standard Laundry Powder canisters before upgrading to a 5-gallon bucket.

Available in unscented and peppermint tea tree.

Net wt. 40 lbs. (18.1 kg).

      Our Ingredients — Meliora Cleaning Products

      Safer Ingredients, Listed on the Label

      Our cleaning powder is MADE SAFE® Certified, meaning it meets the strictest ingredient screening requirement in the industry. MADE SAFE® certification means that a product has been Made With Safe Ingredients™ that are not known or suspected to harm human health, animals, aquatic life, or ecosystems.

      This powder cleaner is made from baking soda and vegetable soap. It is free of bleach, chlorine, dyes, preservatives, and other harsh chemicals commonly used in cleaning powders. The scented variety is made with organic essential oils, not synthetic fragrances.

      Our Packaging — Meliora Cleaning Products

      Plastic-Free, Eco-Friendly Packaging

      Our eco-friendly cleaning powder is concentrated and packaged to minimize waste and environmental impact. By making a concentrated dry powder, we eliminate the need for added preservatives or unnecessary plastic, like hidden liners or PVA pods and sheets.

      Powder cleaner is lighter and more concentrated than liquid cleaner, making it more energy- and cost-effective to ship to you. It also takes up less space in your home—our can is only 3.75 inches tall and 3.2 inches wide.
