With all the shortage of cleaning products and materials, I was wondering whether mums are using natural or chemical-free products or whether it’s not so much of a concern since Coronavirus? What products are you using?

  • My absolute go-to product which I use for nearly everything is a simple
    mix of morning fresh dishwashing liquid and water in a spray bottle. I sometimes add a few drops of soluble eucalyptus oil as well.

  • I have always been fussy about hygiene, so the pandemic didn’t change much for me around the house. I am glad that there are more hand sanitizers and wipes available at supermarkets and shops.

  • I haven’t had to change products, and yes, I still choose chemical free most of the time. I just feel it’s healthier for the family in the long run.

  • I’ve read that only bleach or alcohol disinfects so just using vinegar or lemon etc may not be enough against viruses.

  • Late last year I started using the Koh cleaning system. It was the simplest, best decision I have ever made to do with cleaning. It is helping me keep on top of the cleaning as I literally only have one product I need to grab for the entire house. But as an additional precaution, I spray all surfaces over with Glenn 20 before I go to bed to ensure the house is sanitised. My son has just recovered from pneumonia (even thought we have been home for 5 weeks now) so I am being very cautious. My house is the cleanest it has been EVER!

  • I haven’t changed anything I’m using, except that I use a disinfectant wipe to go over door handles once a day, and I used not to do that.

  • We are careful and sparing with using cleaning products and they last a good amount of time.

  • I still had some so yes, but will depend on availability going forward

  • We have continued to use a combination of different cleaning products.

  • I’ve always used a mixture so nothing has changed during the last month.

  • Do you know the brand Bosisto’s ? It’s natural and free of chemicals and I love it.

  • I’ve been using whatever I can get but haven’t found I’ve needed to change much at all

  • The only thing I haven’t been able to get my hands on is disinfectant spray. I’ve always used it to spray down my daughters play area and the bins etc. I’ve been using a vinegar and water solution instead.

  • I haven’t noticed a shortage of cleaning products :/ I’ve always used shop bought products I never found the natural clean, clean enough for me

  • I use Earth Choice. Still some chemicals but lower than other brands.
