Therefore, as a customer, you’re actively contributing to protecting clean environments alongside other endeavours, such as creating sustainable jobs in waste-picking communities in Kerala, India. Hence, choose Bower Collective for an eco-conscious experience.

3. Bio-D Multi Surface Cleaner
Bio-D Multi Surface Cleaner is an all-purpose product for many surfaces. Hence, it can be used on sinks, baths, cookers, floors, tiles, work surfaces, and paintwork. This product contains orange oil, a powerful degreasing agent that adheres to the BSEN1276 food grade standard, protecting against bacteria like E-coli and Salmonella. Importantly, it is derived entirely from plant-based sources, and this gentle formulation makes it safe for various surfaces and does not contain harmful ingredients such as MIT, BIT, or MI, ensuring a healthy cleaning solution. For tough stains, you can apply it directly to a cloth without diluting it.
4. Bide Eco-Friendly Toilet Cleaning Scrub
Introducing Bide Eco-Friendly Toilet Cleaning Scrub – a planet-friendly solution for a sparkling clean toilet. Bide's scrub is sustainably made, non-toxic, plant-based, and vegan, providing a convenient, refillable, zero-waste, and safe option. It offers a plastic and chemical-free alternative for maintaining a pristine toilet. More specifically, the gentle abrasiveness of Epsom Salts tackles stubborn stains, while the combination of citric acid and bicarbonate of soda works well as a limescale remover. Simply, for effective use, sprinkle one tablespoon around the pan and bowl, let it sit for 15 minutes, and then scrub with a brush. For your convenience, you can choose from three sizes: 800g (38 cleans at 33p/clean), XXL (2kg, 95 cleans at 32p/clean), or Bulk Buy (4kg, 190 cleans at 30p/clean).
5. Ecoleaf Bathroom Cleaner (Green Apple)

6. Dri Pak Citric Acid
Derived from citrus fruits, this non-toxic and environmentally sound descaler is a standout classic. Appliances encrusted with limescale suffer from reduced energy efficiency as they must first heat the limescale before performing their intended tasks. Hence, using Citric Acid by Dri Pak saves energy and money by reducing electricity consumption and extending appliance lifespan. An excellent limescale remover on shower heads, taps, and coffee machines, Citric Acid’s versatility also makes it a great alternative to white vinegar. In just 15 minutes, it can effectively descale kettles. Although safe, it is still important to handle it carefully to avoid eye and skin irritation and potential vomiting if ingested.
