But in order for you to avoid reading up on them all and trying to figure out which ones are best, we've done the work for you. Keep reading for 10 green cleaning products from Target that will cater to every task, from kitchen countertops and tile shower walls to dish soap and laundry detergent.
Ecos Magnolia & Lily Liquid Laundry Detergent
Ecos Magnolia & Lily Liquid Laundry Detergent ($10) is a gentle way to wash your clothes and is great for anyone with sensitive skin. This scent in particular is subtle and comforting and will do a damn good job of eliminating any sweat stains from clothes.
Everspring Wool Dryer Balls
These Everspring Wool Dryer Balls ($9) eliminate the need for heavily scented dryer sheets or fabric softeners that oftentimes contain chemicals that can irritate the skin or are hard on the environment. Simply toss all three of these guys in the dryer to kill the static and reduce drying time. Pro tip: shake a drop or two of your favorite essential oil directly on the wool balls to add a natural scent to your clothes!
Twist Scrub Sponge
These Twist Scrub Sponges ($4) are super cool. Unlike most standard sponges, these, which come in packs of three, are made from a mix of cellulose and cotton, making them completely free from dyes and plastics. Even better, you can extend the life of each sponge by placing it in boiling water when it starts to get grubby, and toss it in your compost pile when it's served its purpose.
Seventh Generation Clementine Dish Soap
Seventh Generation does a fantastic job at creating clean and green products that really deliver. This Seventh Generation Clementine Dish Soap ($3) in particular has a fresh scent while still being able to nix tough grease and leave your dishes sparkling clean.
Lemongrass Citrus Disinfectant Spray
This Lemongrass Citrus Disinfectant Spray ($4) is an eco-friendly disinfectant! The multisurface cleaner is a great help in the kitchen, as it's safe to use even on food surfaces. To disinfect, coat your countertops in this stuff, let it sit for 10 minutes, and boom — germ-free goodness.
