10+ Vegan & Cruelty-Free Household Cleaners

Finding vegan and cruelty-free products can be somewhat of a hassle. Often, we have to shop online or go out of our way to shop at a health store. Surprisingly, this is not the case with cruelty-free household cleaners. Many are available at your local supermarket or pharmacy.

Are you looking for cruelty-free household disinfectants as well? Although you can somewhat disinfect your home surfaces with vinegar, baking soda, and tea tree oil, these natural products are not strong enough to kill powerful bacteria like staphylococcus. To disinfect your household surfaces, you need a product that has been registered with the Environmental Protection Agency as a disinfectant.

In this post, I will introduce you to 11 household cleaners that you can trust to be vegan and cruelty-free, including 3 EPA registered disinfectants.

***Note: Avoid Green Works cleaning products. The company is owned by Clorox***

Tip: Steam is a sure fire way to disinfect your home, and the only ingredient needed is water. Health inspectors accept steam as a way to sanitize and disinfect restaurant kitchens, so why not your home! You can use a steam vacuum for your floors, and a handheld vacuum for your counters and other hard surfaces.
