Environmentally conscious spring cleaning

Spring cleaning is just around the corner! This task not only requires a lot of time and preparation, but also has an impact on the environment. A clean home feels even better if the cleaning is environmentally friendly. Not sure where to start? Don't worry, Klaaar will help you on your way!

Maintain a sustainable mindset

Maintain a sustainable mindset during spring cleaning and make conscious choices to reduce the environmental impact. Fortunately, there are many ways to approach spring cleaning in the most environmentally friendly manner possible!

Use natural cleaning products

Replace chemical cleaning products with natural products, such as vinegar, baking soda, lemon, etc. They are as effective and powerful as classic cleaning products, but not harmful to the environment.

Use reusable cleaning materials and minimize packaging waste

Opt for reusable cleaning products, such as sponges, brushes or microfiber cloths and avoid disposable alternatives. This way you reduce waste during spring cleaning.

Choose cleaning products that you can reuse with refills or purchase products in bulk. Avoid products that are “over-packaged” and look for brands that use eco-friendly packaging or are even completely plastic-free. With Klaaar, you're covered for plastic-free landry strips. Say goodbye to heavy plastic detergent bottles!


Avoid chemically contaminated water

Residues from chemical products wash away with the water and end up in the sewer. The chemically polluted water is harmful to the environment and affects water quality. Avoid this by using biodegradable cleaning products and minimizing the amount of residue washed away with water.

Clean up and recycle

Sort items while decluttering and recycle or donate items you no longer need. Try to avoid throwing away items in good condition as much as possible. Thrift stores and various charities gladly accept donations.

Eco-friendly cleaning and organizing

Use sustainable storage solutions, such as baskets made from natural materials or boxes made from recycled or repurposed materials for tidying up.
