While this post is sponsored by Branch Basics, everything is 100% my own opinion!
At the first scent of warmer weather and soft breezes I always have a sudden urge to clean my home and make everything new again. With baby girl on her way, I want to create an environment that is safe and welcoming. A home where I can rest easy knowing nothing is harmful to her little newborn body. Creating a safe home environment is more than dousing your tables and counters in cleaning products. Have you ever read the labels of all the cleaning products from your local store? They’re filled with harmful chemicals. Even products that have “green” or “all natural” labels often contain ingredients you want to avoid too, such as "fragrance", ethoxylated alcohols, and methylisothiazolinone preservative. How can we preach about staying away from processed or harmful foods, but feel perfectly okay with using harsh chemicals on every part of our house? I’m not okay with this!
This is why I turn to non-toxic cleaning products that are plant and mineral based, free of harmful preservatives, non-GMO and above all, human-safe. I’ve been a big supporter of Branch Basics for these reasons, plus they don’t test on animals and are completely biodegradable.
I’m obsessed with these products. More than that, I’m truly inspired by their story. I can get behind any brand that came from humble beginnings; the three founders Allison, Kelly and Marilee really put their all into their products. Read their beautiful backstory here.
My days are often packed to the brim and I’m constantly moving from place to place. It’s hard to set the time aside, break out all the cleaning supplies and get to work on the house. Branch Basics made it really easy. Simply use their Concentrate in one of the bottles you desire at that moment (I tend to go for their All-Purpose cleaner) and fill tap water to the “water” line then top with Concentrate to the “soap” line, shake it all up and then you are ready to spritz away! It’s so easy and SAFE that I can get Kai and Leo in on the action, perfect right?
Some other added perks are:
It works REALLY well - on everything from sticky smoothie bowl messes to stains (a plus when you have boys)
It's safer, with better ingredients - no harmful chemicals hiding behind the word "fragrance" and no irritating preservatives
You can use it on laundry too! – 1 TSP of Concentrate goes a long way, learn how to use in top loaders & front loaders here (mom life hack!)
It truly streamlines your cleaning routine - one versatile Concentrate for everything, convenient to re-fill, and declutters your cabinets
Saves you money – Start with their Starter Kit, which comes with reusable All-Purpose, Bathroom and Streak-Free sprayers and a foaming wash + Oxygen Boost which is perfect for a laundry booster, pre-treating stains and tough on bathroom grout!
Less waste & more sustainable - Concentrate and empty spray bottles are used again and again, plus The Concentrate is biodegradable
As a mom, it’s important to consider every object and product in your home and how it helps or harms the environment you’ve worked so hard to create. You want nothing less than magic and perfection in your home and it starts with pure, safe products.
