Way before there were “green” products there was Bon Ami. Developed over 120 years ago, Bon Ami was the gentle alternative to the harsh quartz-based cleaning powders around in the 1880s. Today, Bon Ami continues to make cleaning products that are gentle on both its users and surfaces – everything is biodegradable, nontoxic and hypoallergenic. I’m especially a fan of their all purpose cleaner and dish soap (super gentle on hands). Every Bon Ami product comes in the most simplistic option of “Free & Clear”, as well as a fun, scented option – Tangerine Thyme.
If you think about how much you clean over the course of your life, it is truly an investment in your health to not only go natural with your food and beauty products, but also your every day cleaning supplies! I know many people are probably doubtful of the effectiveness of natural cleaners and I’ll be honest, I don’t think there’s any natural product that can match the strength of bleach, but they are many effective, natural alternatives out there – like Bon Ami, like good old white vinegar, etc. Give it a try!
