In my quest to reduce exposure to toxins anywhere I can, I had been struggling to find a household cleaner. Not only am I sensitive to lots of chemicals, but I am really triggered by many scents and fragrances…are any of you with me? I know anyone with mast cell or histamine issues like me will totally get that!
I had been seeing Force of Nature Clean all over instagram in accounts of many people I follow and respect and finally decided to give it a try.
About a week after I started using it I had an AHA moment. I had been reaching for this spray bottle left and right, and I usually avoid ALL spray cleaners like the plague! I have even been known to run in the other room if my husband breaks out the one he likes (I really have!). I casually said to him “Do you know why I really like this new cleaner?”, and he replied “Yes. Because it has no smell.” BOOM. He nailed it. It in fact does have a very mild smell, some have likened to very mild pool water, but it just smells fresh and clean and there are no added nasties to trigger me. I am using this now everywhere and I have to say, it works really well. Don’t just take my word on it, go to their website and read all about it. They have the science there to back it up for those of you that are science-y like me and need a little proof.
I also love that it is a greener option since you don’t have bottles to toss and there are no nasty chemicals to harm your home, or our environment for that matter. You receive capsules in the mail that you mix with water and activate in the device (left in the picture) to create the cleaner. It’s fun to watch as it bubbles like mad. The capsules contain only salt and vinegar in just the right ratio and you add the water to create electrolyzed water. Yeah, go read about it. They have a nice video that will take you back to high school chemistry, well maybe more like middle school chemistry. It’s cute and easy to follow and will give you everything you need to know about it.
My only hesitation so far was the plastic spray bottle, although I know glass might not be appealing to everyone. I did contact the company and they told me the liquid can certainly be transferred to a glass spray bottle. I have and like this one, so I may give that a go, although I don’t plan to toss this bottle, as that would defeat the purpose. Maybe in the future they might offer a glass bottle upgrade to the kit? (Hint hint…hope you are you listening Force of Nature?)
