Every March and April I spring-clean my entire house. I can’t say it is something I look forward to, but the fresh smell and cleanliness afterward are quite rewarding. There’s a plethora of cleaning products on the market, but I always opt for green sources. You really have to read the labels, not all brands who claim to be green or eco-friendly truly are, and this is so disappointing. One brand that lives up to its green claim is AspenClean.
AspenClean is based in Vancouver, Canada, and they have been providing organic, biodegradable, eco-friendly products for over a decade and introduced their full line of AspenClean products in 2009. AspenClean has the only Eco-Cert certified cleaning products in Canada, are 100% natural, use organic essential oils, and are vegan-friendly. This brand completely resonates with my views about using only non-toxic to scrub the home. I got a chance to try out their whole line, and I’m quite impressed, they actually work fabulously. Here’s what do and do not contain.
Natural ingredients derived from plants and minerals
Organic essential oils
Biodegradable plant-derived ingredients
Designed to be matched with our high-tech microfiber cloths
Post-consumer material in all packaging
Reusing and Recycling
Social and Environmental Responsibility
Ethoxylates and Sulphates (SLS/SLES)

The AspenClean All-Purpose Set was voted winner in the “Natural Cleaning Products” category. Product of the YearTM is the world’s largest consumer-voted award for product innovation. It is a distinguished award voted by consumers and is recognized around the world.
The first thing you’ll notice about AspenClean products is the lovely scents they have. The room gets filling with the refreshing fragrance of essential oils. Essential oils are not only safe for people and pets; they have such powerful cleaning ability too.
The All Purpose Cleaner is so versatile; you find that you can use it anywhere. I find myself spraying walls, railings, door knobs, window frames and even my workout equipment. It has the splendid scent of grapefruit and lavender and lots of cleaning power.
The Glass Cleaner is will quickly clean glass, mirrors, windows, fixtures and appliances without leaving any streaks. I’ve used other glass cleaners, and they always leave a cloudy streak that tough to get rid of, so I was really happy this product instantly clean all the surfaces without any residue left. It has the essence of lavender and lime oil, and this combination smells great.
The Kitchen Cleaner is my superhero; it honestly cleans any surface. It’s foam cuts through greasy easily leaving it sparkling and smooth. I love using it on my kitchen counters. Food will sit on the counter so having a clean surface is important. Also, my cats feel they have the right to walk on my counters, so I find myself cleaning my counters several times a day. This product has the lovely scent of bergamot (which has sort of an orange sent) and Grapefruit; it leaves the kitchen smelling so clean and fresh.
The Bathroom Cleaner is ideal for watermarks and bathtub scum, but I’ve used on every surface in the bathroom. I usually spray the bathtub and let sit for a few minutes, and you can actually see it removing dirt as the foam slides down the tub. The tub, sink, and even the chrome come out glistening. What I really like is that you don’t have to scrub so hard, the product does most of the work, and that’s okay with me. It has the awesome scent of lavender and lime; it’s so fresh and invigorating.
The SuperScrub Powder is awesome; it will tackle any cleaning job no matter how tough and dirty. It’s not fussy about any surface and works so effectively. I’ve used it on the bottom of pots and pans, and they come out really nice. I’ve also used it to clean patio furniture and potting products. It’s great for inside or outside the home.
The Microfiber Cloths are just as important, and they have their own line of attributes. They are man-made from polyester 80% (the scrubbing and cleaning fiber), polyamide 20% (the absorbing and quick drying fiber). They’re super absorbent, holding up to seven times its weight in water. They’re lint-free, hypoallergenic, non-abrasive, and will eliminate up to 99.9% of bacteria. I enjoyed using them; they are a little bigger than other ones I’ve used but they are also thinner and by far more cleaning efficient.
With the cleaning power of these organic and environmentally products, you can’t go wrong. Green is the way to go, and AspenClean is the brand that walks the walk. I love them!
