Our grandmothers, or great grandmothers depending on your age, used to make their own cleaning products out of simple, safe ingredients. The shift towards chemicals in cleaning products was partially due to the lack of animal fat during World Wars used to make soap. For example, it wasn’t until the 1940s that phosphate compounds were added to create laundry detergents with synthetic surfactants.
Unfortunately, this change from homemade natural cleaning products to synthetic detergents and compounds created an unhealthy home for humans and the environment. Toxic cleaning ingredients cause a range of problems from minor skin irritations to cancer.
Returning to the basics, AspenClean has created a line of all-natural cleaning products. They even offer a cleaning service for the lucky people of Calgary, Vancouver, and Toronto.
Our eco-friendly cleaners are based on Grandmas green home cleaning methods and are formulated using cosmetic-grade natural ingredients like baking soda, organic essential oils and simple soaps. Plus, we added a high-tech twist with our range of microfiber cloths, which are so effective in picking up dirt and grime that stronger cleaners are simply not necessary.
We were sent six AspenClean cleaning products to try made from organic ingredients and the first to earn the Environmental Working Group‘s Verified Status, as well as EcoCert. Both certifications are to be trusted and verification of the true eco-friendly and sustainable nature of these cleaning products:
- Natural Laundry Detergent Lavender & Lemongrass
- Natural Laundry Detergent Eucalyptus & Rosemary
- Natural Laundry Detergent Unscented
- Bathroom Microfiber Cloth
- Natural Bathroom Cleaner
- Natural SuperScrub Scouring Powder
Starting with my favorite AspenClean product, the microfiber cloth is much larger than I expected. It is a great product for eliminating the use of disposable paper towels. I used it with the bathroom cleaner to clean my granite counter top and toilet. It was very absorbent and effective.
There are only two places I use paper towels when cleaning: the toilet and windows. AspenClean also makes a microfiber cloth designed for windows I would love to try and ditch paper towels once and for all!
AspenClean uses a color-coded system to help you remember which microfiber cloth goes with which cleaner and part of the home, so that once you remove the packaging, it’s easy to remember. Blue is for the bathroom!
The AspenClean Bathroom Cleaner has a lovely gentle smell and did not irritate my skin. It cleaned my granite vanity top effortlessly, including removing built-up Dr. Bronner’s soap drops. Infused with organic lavender and lime, this spray cleaner is 100% natural, biodegradable, and effective. It’s made in Canada, and the bottle is 100% recycled plastic except for the colorant. AspenClean is so honest in their efforts to be eco-friendly, they even disclose this minor detail many companies would ignore.
Next, I used the AspenClean Super Scrub powder to clean my copper bathroom sink and toilet bowl. This all-natural cleaning product contains organic tea
AspenClean makes laundry detergent in three different varieties (unscented, lavender and lemongrass, eucalyptus
My favorite scent is definitely lavender and lemongrass. I love this combination! The scent is not overpowering, at all,

AspenClean offers the following cleaning services:
- House Cleaning
- Move In / Out Cleaning
- Post Construction Cleaning
- AirBnB / Vacation Cleaning
- Carpet & Upholstery Cleaning
I really wish they were available in my area!
When searching for an AirBnB, I look for ones that say they use eco-friendly cleaning products. I have learned from experience that I get headaches when sleeping on sheets with strong chemical fragrances and the scent of toxic cleaners. That “freshly cleaned” smell is exactly the opposite. It is a warning of poor indoor air quality and a toxic home environment.
We get a lot of eco-friendly cleaning products to review, and there are very few that really stand out. AspenClean is one of them! I am pleased to have discovered this brand and look forward to exploring more of their product line!
