I hope you all are doing well!
In today’s post we’re talking about natural cleaning products that can be used in the kitchen. I’m focusing on store bought versions today, but I’ll be sharing DIY options in another post.
Most of the products I’ll be listing can be found on Amazon, so they’ll be easy to find online, even if you can’t find them in an actual store near you. Some are a little more “natural” than others, in my opinion, but I’ll let you be the judge of what you choose to use in your own home. 😊

So let’s get started!
Puracy Multi-Surface Cleaner can be found on Amazon, and one 16 oz. bottle of concentrate makes one gallon of cleaner. It is a naturally derived, plant based product which can be used on an array of surfaces.
Better Life cleaner is a product free of dyes, synthetic fragrances, sulfates, and petroleum solvents. The unscented cleaner has a short ingredient list, and according to its description it can be used beyond the kitchen counter tops, even on things like the shower and upholstery.
Mrs. Meyer’s Multi-Surface Cleaner is a product that I use, and probably one of the nicest things about this brand is the wide array of scents to choose from! If you’re someone who wants a nice scent to accompany your cleaning, then Mrs. Meyer’s might be the way to go. However, I will note that this brand does contain some synthetic fragrances, and I wouldn’t necessarily consider it ultra pure, so that’s something to consider if you want a more natural product. You can visit their website for a full list of ingredients and the purpose of each one.
Shaklee Organic Super Cleaning Concentrate truly is super concentrated, requiring only 1/4 tsp. per 16 oz. of water for general cleaning, and even less for mirrors or windows. On their website, they say to use 1 1/2 tsp. per 16 oz. of water for degreasing things like the oven or microwave. The website also states that this product is nontoxic, with no toxic fumes, chlorine, or hazardous chemicals.
Method is probably a brand most of you have heard of, and the all purpose cleaner can be used on most surfaces, such as counter tops, tile, stone, and glass.
Seventh Generation is another brand most have probably heard about or used. The Amazon description describes it as being a nontoxic, VOC free formula, and it can also be used on marble, granite, and stainless steel.
Branch Basics has created a cleaning concentrate which boasts a long list of features, including being non-toxic, non-GMO, hypoallergenic, fragrance-free, and containing no parabens, phthalates, synthetic preservatives/fragrances, alcohols, etc. It is more pricey than other brands, but it’s worth taking into consideration if you’re looking for a natural cleaning product.
Molly’s Suds ingredients are described as being completely free of synthetic fragrances, dyes, petroleum, and solvents, and as being safe for people with chemical and fragrance sensitivities and allergies. This cleaner is good for use on countertops and other sealed surfaces.
The Laundress Surface Cleaner is described as being safe for food, family, and pets, and is scented with essential oils (although “fragrance” is included in the ingredients list). It is good for use on typical kitchen surfaces such as marble, granite, finished woodwork, stone, and stainless steel.
On Guard Cleaning Concentrate is another product that I use in my home, and it contains pure essential oils of wild orange, clove, cinnamon, eucalyptus, and rosemary. It contains no added preservatives and can be used on hard surfaces in the kitchen, bathroom, etc.
Thieves Household Cleaner is another cleaner made with pure essential oils, and is described as being a solution which can be used on virtually every surface of your home.
Well, that’s all for now, although this certainly is not an exhaustive list of natural products! These are just the ones I included in my post today. I encourage you to do your own research and find the cleaners that you are comfortable with using in your own home. 😊
Have a great day!
