Eco-Cleaning Products - What's in the Cleaner?

Ecology and sustainability are the buzzwords of our time. This does not stop at house cleaning. But what can eco-cleaners really do?

Anyone looking for sustainable products today does not necessarily have to go to a health food store. Many supermarket and drugstore chains jump on the green train and offer in addition to the chemical-based cleaning products also a wide selection of alternative brands. But is bio equated with better and more environmentally friendly?

World improver or sham?

The basic idea behind eco-cleaners is to put less pressure on the environment - primarily on the waters. The ingredients of the chemical and biological cleaner hardly differ. The biggest difference is that the surfactants - the cleansing substances - in the eco-cleaning agents are not derived from petroleum. Instead, vegetable raw materials such as palm kernel oil are used here.

But beware: even so-called palm oil does not enjoy the best reputation by far. Particularly in Indonesia and Malaysia, the cultivation of palm plantations is a huge victim of rainforest areas. It is important to convince yourself twice about the sustainability of a purported bio-cleaner. Does the oil used really come from controlled, organic cultivation? In case of inaccurate or confusing information, the demand at the manufacturer helps. The Bio-Cleaner, however, brings with it an unrestricted environmental advantage: Mostly the packaging is made of recyclable plastic.

Euroblume as a sign of compatibility

When it comes to cleaning performance, the ecologically more valuable cleaning agents are in no way inferior to conventional ones , Some wiener even better than their counterparts. The products bearing the so-called "Euroblume" - the EU Ecolabel - are among the most compatible and environmentally friendly. Which does not mean that all makes without a euro flower are bad. Used citrus oils or similar additives are often the reason for the absence of the seal, as they can be particularly difficult to break down in the sewage treatment plant. In terms of price, the difference between sustainable and chemical cleaners ranges from a few cents to two euros.
