Disinfecting Cleaning Supplies: What We’re Stocking Up On

March 6th, 2020

With recent concerns around the rise in COVID-19 cases, we’re taking extra care to keep our immune systems in top shape and making sure to regularly disinfect our surroundings.

To support our members during this time, we have been steadily building inventory in the Immunity, Cleaning, and Pantry Staples categories. If an item is temporarily out of stock, know that we’re working hard to quickly re-stock it. We promise to never engage in surge pricing and are committed to shipping your orders as fast as possible.

So let’s stock up! Here are some of our members’ favorite nontoxic cleaning supplies for keeping germs away during cold and flu season.

Household Cleaners

Seventh Generation Disinfecting Multi-Surface Cleaner, Lemongrass Citrus
This multi-surface cleaner is designed to kill 99.99% of household germs and is safe for hard, nonporous surfaces. Bonus: It’s also free of synthetic fragrances and chlorine.

“This is a must for cold and flu season. I try to avoid using bleach so this disinfecting multi-surface cleaner is a must year-round, but especially in the winter. It’s true what it says on the label—you can use it to clean up just about everything.”—Shala from Midland, Michigan

Aunt Fannie’s Eucalyptus Cleaning Vinegar
Spray Aunt Fannie’s Cleaning Vinegar directly on stoves, countertops, windows, and floors, and then wipe with a mop or cloth for clean surfaces that have lasting shine. This scent uses eucalyptus globus oil as the first ingredient followed by mint oil for a squeaky clean, invigorating aroma. All of Aunt Fannie’s Cleaning Vinegars are made with food-based ingredients but boast commercial-grade cleaning power.

Aunt Fannie’s Cleaning Vinegar Wipes – Fresh Lime Mint
