One of the easiest ways to cut down on bottles is refilling and we're back to doing local refills with our Bio-D cleaning products.
But why do we use Bio-D? Bio-D are Hull-based, small family business who created a range of cleaning products that are good for the planet but also affordable. With the option of buying many of their products in bulk, up to 15L and with most of their products are made from recycled plastic they're a great option for those of us not ready to switch to DIY options. All of their products are vegan and leaping bunny certified, plus all Bio-D products are natural and plant-derived (free from triclosan, phthalates, palm oil, petroleum-derivatives, GMOs, formaldehyde, chlorine bleach, synthetic fragrance).
The main thing we get asked about is 'smell' as we're conditioned to nice smelling cleaning products; Bio-D products have fragrances derived from essential oils and but also have fragrance-free products available. We use the Lime and Aloe handwash, Lavender washing up liquid and bathroom spray and confirm they all smell gorgeous!
Plus Bio-D Multi Surface Sanitiser, All Purpose Sanitiser, Home & Garden Sanitiser and Sanitising Hand Wash are all BSEN1276 approved meaning they have been tested against a range of bacteria, including E-coli, salmonella and MRSA and can be used in catering environments. So what's in the range: 💚Toilet Cleaner - free from bleach. Works by removing waste rather than sterilising it. 💚All Purpose Sanitiser, Glass and Mirror and Bathroom Cleaning sprays- for cleaning surfaces throughout the home 💚Multi Surface Sanitiser - for heavy-duty cleaning such as ovens, sinks and floors. 💚Home & Garden Sanitiser - for disinfecting patios, paths, decking, driveways, green houses, water butts, waste bins, septic tanks, sinks and drains 💚Floor cleaner - effective on vinyl, laminate, ceramic flooring. The linseed oil in it conditions wood. 💚Laundry products - all free from enzymes, optical brighteners, phosphates (scented and fragrance-free options are available in liquid and fabric softener, but powder is unfragranced). The washing powder in brown bag is lined with LDPE plastic, we use it for our nappies . 💚Handwash-this isn’t made from recycled plastic, but can be reused, recycled or bought in bulk which is what we do. 💚Laundry Bleach - oxygen-based and accredited by Allergy UK. Ideal for keeping laundry bright and extra sanitising. Bio-D is an Ethical Consumer Best Buy and it's easy to see why. A super simple way to switch up your cleaning without any hassle or extra expense and if you choose to bulk buy or refill it's even better value. Why not give it a try?
