The eco spring cleaning guide

Looking to go green with your spring clean? We’ve got the ultimate guide to making your spring clean routine easy, efficient and much more eco-friendly. From washing up to wiping down, switch to chemical-free and reusable products for a pristine finish that keeps the planet happy too.

Remove nasty chemicals

Cast away nasty chemicals. Not only are they damaging the environment, but you’re also breathing them in with every spritz and spray. Switch to non-toxic cleaning products instead, which you can find in our Lakeland cleaning range. With a product for every area of your home, scents you’ll fall in love with and packaged fully recyclable materials, we can meet all of your eco needs.

Sustainable cleaning cloths

Ditch the paper towels. This is a super-sustainable swap that not only cleans your surfaces but your conscience as well. We love the Mabu Biodegradable Cleaning Cloths, which are naturally bacteria-resistant and have eight layers to ensure dirt, debris and even stains rinse clean away, over and over again.

Home Efficiency

Up your energy efficiency game. When you’re giving your home a seasonal spring makeover, take the opportunity to ensure your appliances are doing their bit for the planet too. Switch devices off rather than leaving on standby to stop them draining electricity. And if you fancy a feng shui move, relocate your fridge to a shadier part of the kitchen so it uses less power to keep your food cold.

Bleach alternative cleaning

Put the brakes on bleach. Bleach is one of the harshest ingredients in commercial cleaning products, especially ones for tackling bathroom bacteria. Swap out those potent products for Wilton London Bathroom Cleaner, which uses the power of nature to fight germs and climate change, all at the same time.

Eco glass cleaners

Green clean your screens. Some window and glass cleaners are highly toxic and can often damage screens, worktops and cause skin reactions. It’s time to switch to a natural-based alternative, such as Wilton London Glass Cleaner. With no nasties, you can get a sparkling finish with no streaks and smears, plus all your glass and mirrors will smell lemon fresh too – it’s a no brainer.

Now you’re equipped with an eco-friendly spring cleaning guide, it’s time to put it into practice. Get your home gleaming, free from toxic chemicals and do your bit for the planet as well – talk about multi-tasking! You’ll find lots more planet-friendly cleaning ideas to help on our website.
