Cleaning takes up a huge part of my life. Not only is it my main job along side my side hustles, but I just generally love to clean too. So it’s no wonder that I often talk of cleaning, mainly on my Instagram account.
Long before Mrs Hinch took the UK by storm, I loved nothing more than popping to the shops and finding new products to try. As I’ve got older, I now tend to stick to my favourites. My cleaning cupboard has a lot less products in it than it used to. I try to clean more sustainably and stick to multi-use products.
One major problem with my love of cleaning is how many single use plastic bottles and packaging I get through each month. It was something I was really starting to become conscious of. When I was approached by a company to see if I would like to try Neat cleaning products, I knew this could be the answer to my prays.
Who is Neat?
Neat make beautifully scented cleaning products that not only perform brilliantly but also help us to cut down on waste too. Did you know that a typically cleaning product in your home is made up of 90% water? By switching your conventional cleaning products to Neat instead, you could help towards saving 20,238 tonnes of plastic. That’s the equivalent of 4000 full sized elephants. In addition to that you could also help towards saving 522 million litres of water. Incredibly, that’s the equivalent of 208 Olympic sized swimming pools.
Neat aims to have less trucks on the road and less plastic waste. so what happened when I started sustainably cleaning with Neat?
Getting Started With Neat
As I’ve mentioned above, I prefer a multi-use product. After browsing their website for a little while, I finally decided on the Neat Anti Bac Multi Surface Cleaner Refill Starter Pack. With plenty of lovely scents to choose from, I opted for the Mango & Fig scent.
The refill starter pack does exactly what it says. It gives you everything you will need to start your Neat journey. Included in the pack is an aluminium bottle and a refill glass bottle with your chosen scent. The fact that its a glass bottle means it is so much easier for you to recycle it. You could also repurpose it too if you’re more creative.
So how does it work? You simply fill the bottle with 470ml of tap water before carefully pouring in the refill solution. Secure the nozzle and give it a good shake. After that, you are good to go.
My Thoughts On Cleaning Sustainably With Neat
Firstly I have to mention the scent because it’s amazing. Obviously I can’t comment on the other scents in the range but the Mango & Fig one smells incredible. I don’t like overpowering scents that a lot of conventional cleaning products have because I’d rather something more subtle and homely feeling. Not only that but when they are overpowering, I tend to find that the scent doesn’t last more than a couple of hours. The Neat cleaner is different to that. It is just the right amount of scent, which lasts for days, not hours.
One thing I really love about this Neat cleaner is that it’s designed to last. I know I can use the aluminium bottle over and over again. Its lightweight, even once you have filled it up, making it super easy to take around the house with you. The designers of Neat have really put a lot of thought into their bottles. Each have a silicone base that gives extra protection where it needs it. It makes it feel so much better when placing on hard surfaces because its quiet considering the bottle itself is made from aluminium. It’s also very aesthetically pleasing too.
In terms of using it for cleaning, the Neat Anti Bac Multi Surface Cleaner has been a joy to use. It leaves a lovely finish to any surface I’ve used it on, including mirrors. It has even cut through grease on the cooker too. As someone who has got through a lot of different cleaning products in her time, this is definitely one that I’m keeping. I’ve already started looking on the Neat website to see what other scents and products they have. I hope you have enjoyed reading all about sustainably cleaning with Neat and I’d love to know how you get on with their products too.
