Video: 7 natural cleaning products featured on FOX31 Denver


Jenna Blumenfeld of Delicious Living and talks about seven innovative, natural cleaning products on FOX 31 Denver's Good Day Colorado. Featured in this video are:

Eco Nuts Natural Laundry Soap

Package- and chemical-free, Eco Nuts are actually dried, sterilized berry shells from a tree found in Nepal, India and Indonesia. People indigenous to the area have been using Eco Nuts for centuries to wash their clothes.

Simply place 4-5 berries in the included muslin bag, and throw into the washer with your clothes—they naturally suds. The best part? Each berry can be used up to 10 times, making this an über-affordable, not to mention waste-free, way to launder.

Bambooee Reusable Bamboo Towel

An astonishing 3,000 tons of paper towel waste are produced each day. Bambooee is an innovative way to reduce paper towel consumption in the household, without sacrificing integrity. Tear off one of the 20 organic bamboo sheets, and wash up to 25 times along with your clothes. A plus? The more you wash each sheet, the more soft and absorbent it becomes.

Drainbo Natural Drain Cleaner

If you cringe when you use chemical-heavy conventional drain cleaners, don’t despair. Drainbo Natural Drain Cleaner not only works exceptionally to cut through the grease and oil that clog drains, but with its millions of microbes, it promotes septic system health. Drainbo also continues to break apart matter once it reaches your local water treatment center.

Better Life What-Ever Unscented All-Purpose Cleaner

Better Life is a cool company. Founded by two dads (one of whom is a chemist), its ingredients are entirely derived from plants. Punchy, bright packaging and clever product names like Take It For Granite and Simply Floored make this natural cleaning brand have potential to appeal to mainstream consumers. Plus, it cleans where other natural products fail.


Made from organic cotton and eco-friendly dyes, PeopleTowels embrace the idea of “precycling”—taking measures to reduce waste in the first place.

Heavily involved with charitable initiatives, this responsible company is spearheading “Clean Hands, Clean World.” The program will collect leftover soap from hotels, form them into bars, and wrap them in a specially-designed PeopleTowel. The package will be delivered to areas of the world where hygiene is an issue.

TWIST Scour Pads

While TWIST has been around for a few years, their Scour Pads are new. Made entirely from plants, the product is the perfect tool to degrease a dirty pot or pan. Its scrubbing power rivals a conventional, petroleum-based sponge.

Grab Green Gardenia 3-in-1 laundry detergent

Grab Green laundry detergent comes in small 1-inch pods. Simply throw a pod into your washer and the plant-based film encapsulating the powder dissolves, allowing your clothes to be cleaned naturally. The company’s new gardenia scent is lovely, too.

They stated that cleaners were all natural and no chemical ingredients, the brands they talked about have synthetic chemical preservatives. The only one that is truly natural is the soap nuts! Love the bamboo paper towels and that they can be re-washed and re-used a few times, but then why wouldn't I just use my kitchen towels? hmmm...

I Love Eco Nuts! The best brand out there - great to see it featured - definitely deserves the attention.

Twist is another favorite company of mine. Looking forward to trying the new scour pads.

All consumer products must have some system in place for preservation of the product in order to give it a shelf life. However, there are a lot of options when it comes to which system/materials you use. Better Life employs systems adapted from both the food and skincare industry to preserve the BETTER LIFE products instead of using parabens, formaldehyde donors and other harsh preservatives found in other cleaning products. Depending on the specific product, we use things like fruit acids and essential oils/extracts to help preserve the product. However, these alone will not safely preserve the product. Therefore, to ensure quality and a 3 year shelf life, we use a completely biodegradable synthetic ingredient at less than 0.01% to supplement the system. These systems that we have developed are safe, environmentally responsible and ensure quality in our products.

We love GrabGreen products. Just as effective as the toxic stuff. The very first company to put the laundry detergent in a pod. Now everyone it doing it! What a compliment.

I use regular distilled white vinegar for cleaning all surfaces in my kitchen and bath. The smell subsides as soon as it's dry. I also use it for spraying on veggies before rinsing and using them. Vinegar is the oldest germ killer known to man and is the least expensive as well. Two gallons at Sam's Club is less than $4.00.
