Green cleaning is a beautiful thing!
Yes, cleaning can be a tough chore too, but it does make one feel better about themselves and their home and is totally worth the effort. And even more so when using products that are environmentally friendly and make your home smell nice.
Sapadilla is a relatively young eco-friendly house-cleaning products company, founded by a young couple, Jill & Steve, who live and work in North Vancouver, BC.
A couple of years ago, they have approached me to re-formulate their two scents, Rosemary + Peppermint
and Grapefruit + Bergamot
. The results are finally out in the shops and boutiques carrying the line!
The new packaging looks different - it comes in a glossy plastic and the silhouette is a little different too (see picture). The scents are different too (I'm pleased to say that they are much better tan before) although they retained the original concept. The old packaging (and scents) may be still in stores (they come in a matte plastic bottles, and have different ingredients). The new ingredient lists will include the following essential oils:
The new Rosemary + Peppermint is a little like candy-cane and includes peppermint, rosemary, cloves and orange. It gives a very clean aroma to anything it touches. I like it especially in the kitchen, where it can cut through the cooking smells and the grease when washing the dishes or the oven.
The new Grapefruit + Bergamot is mouthwatering delicious lemony citrus and includes litsea cubeba, lemon, orange, bergamot and grapefruit. It really makes me feel happy to clean so I use it everywhere else in the house :-)
Sapadilla currently offers 3 household cleaning products:
Counter-top spray, which helps to disinfect and clean surfaces such as counters, tables, desks, etc.
Dish soap detergent - to wash you dishes by hand.
All-purpose cleaner concentrate - which can be diluted in water or for removing tough stains in the kitchen or bathroom. You can also dilute it in water to refill the spray bottle once it's ran out and have more counter-top spray.
