No matter what sort of home you live in, everyone uses cleaning products. Most of us want to use the most eco-friendly cleaning products available, provided that they're affordable and accessible. We also want products that work well.
Along with the daily grind of responsibilities, running errands, and keeping up with groceries, buying household items, like cleaning products, can fall to the side. The easiest solution? A subscription service that automatically sends products to you when you need them, ensuring that you never run out of your detergent or dish soap.
A unique cleaning subscription service is Cleancult, which is special for two main reasons. First, their products are entirely non-toxic. They are all plant-and mineral-based, as well as biodegradable. Even cooler? They're serious about giving back. For each load of laundry purchased, they are donating one load to a person in need in Puerto Rico.
What comes in the subscription box? Customers will receive laundry pods, an all-purpose cleaner, and dishwasher packs. Customers can choose to have the boxes arrive once a month, once every two months, or once every three months.
"We give back to the community through laundry because it's an often overlooked part of disaster displacement," Ryan Lupberger, CEO and cofounder of Cleancult, explained to Bustle in an interview. "When someone moves to a new home, area, or temporary shelter, they often have no way to clean their clothes."
"We are not owned by a big corporation trying to 'greenwash' but are instead trying to change the status quo. We believe that by basing ourselves in a strong community, listening to our customers, and trying to be leaders and not followers, we can use cleaners as a tool for change in your life," the company explains on their Indiegogo page.
How do you actually get a subscription? Easy. Just check out their site. You have three options to choose from: The Young Professional, The Conscious Couple, or The Fearless Family.
The Young Professional ships every three months, The Conscious Couple every two months, and the Fearless Family arrives once per month. You can also choose their products individually, which include the all-purpose cleaner ($5.99 per bottle), dishwasher pacs (8.49 per bag of 18), laundry pacs ($8.49 per bag of 18), dryer sheets ($5.99 per box), and dish soap ($5.99 per bottle). As of now, their new products will launch August 15.
For those who are more interested in DIY solutions, there are plenty of easy ways you can make your own cleaning products at home. This is a good way to know exactly what you're putting into your home, especially if you have allergies, children, or pets you're concerned about.
