Greenfrog Cleaning Products Review

Having a family where all of us have some sort of skin complaint, I am always on the look out for products that will work for all us. This includes cleaning products because I am allergic to rubber gloves so have no way of protecting my hands when doing the household chores.

Greenfrog are a new independent company who are situated in Brighton. Greenfrog aim to provide their customers with an ethical and more environmentally friendly alternative product instead of purchasing items from some of the bigger corporations.

Their cleaning products are filled with natural and organic ingredients, so when I was asked to review some samples from their range, I was eager to try them because I am fed up of walking around with dry, sore hands after cleaning.

In the package I received was : Natural Washing Up Liquid, Natural Handwash, Natural All Purpose Cleaner and a bag of Soapnuts.

The main ingredients in each of their products are wild berries called Sapindus Mukorossi, commonly know to the rest of us as soap nuts. These berries are known to have natural cleansing and antibacterial properties, making them a perfect ingredient to add to a cleaning range.

Natural Washing Up Liquid

Now I have to admit when I first used this, I was skeptical because their wasn't lots and lots of bubbles, I'm used to washing up liquids leaving lots of soapy suds. 

I first tried this on a pan which was covered in burnt on food. I left it to soak for an hour and couldn't believe how easily the food came away, I didn't need to stand there scrubbing away. 

Infused with lemon and neroli, it left my dishes sparkling clean and smelling wonderful too. Priced at £1.69 for a 500ml bottle, as you only need one small squirt each time you use it, it is well worth the money one bottle will go a long way.

Natural Handwash

The whole family has been using this hand wash. Made with aloe vera, peppermint, honey and geranium, it smells divine. 
As it has no chemicals in the ingredients, it didn't irritate my children's eczema and it leaves your hands feeling silky smooth after. 

And of course the ingredients carry antibacterial qualities which means all those nasty germs will be gone.

Priced at £3.99 for a 500ml bottle, it is no more expensive than some of the bigger brands out there and it certainly does the same job, if not better than it's competition.

Natural All Purpose Cleaner

Now this cleaner is again free from any nasty chemicals so you have no need to worry about your children touching any surfaces after you have cleaned. This product was even shortlisted in the Olympia Products, Europe, winning the silver award for "Best New Natural Living & Home Product".

Again infused with geranium and neroli oils, it cleans away dirt and grime with ease, leaving a pleasant smell which lingers for quite a while afterwards.

Priced at £2.49 for a 500ml bottle, I would recommend it, cleans just as well as leading brands but leaves a better smell in my opinion and with the added bonus that it doesn't irritate your skin, what's not to love?

Soapnuts

These clever things are a great eco-friendly way of getting your laundry clean. Fab for sensitive skin.

The soapnuts themselves don't have a scent, this means you can add your own essential oils to your wash if you want your clothes smell of some sort of fragrance, you can pick your favourite smells rather than being stuck with the same old laundry detergent smell.

Just 6-8 soapnut shells can be used for up to 3 washes and seen as you get a bag of 50 nuts for £3.79, you will definitely be saving yourself money. 

The only thing I found was that they weren't so good at getting rid of stubborn stains but you can add your normal stain remover to your wash so this isn't a huge problem.

All Greenfrog products are harvested, packaged, produced and bottled at the foothills of the Himalayas and transported by train before being shipped, minimising their carbon footprint. Each product is quality controlled at every stage of the making process, meeting all relevant European standards and certifications. 

I would highly recommend checking this company out. By buying these products, you will be saving yourself money in the long run, keeping your kids away from nasty chemicals and you will also be doing your own bit for the environment, it is a win win.!!!

You can find Greenfrog on both facebook and twitter if you would like to keep up to date with all their latest news and goings on.
