Sweet Stuff: Aspen Clean Products

Sweet Stuff: Aspen Clean Products

In just one more way that I know I’m getting old, I’m recently finding myself more and more bothered by the smell and fumes of traditional cleaning products. I feel so bad for the young guy who does maintenance in our building. I have to hold my breath when we ride the elevator after he’s spruced it up with the crazy-toxic cleaning products the condo provides him. Even standing over the sink while squirting some dish soup into a pot can give me a headache. Sadly, I can’t just avoid the whole cleaning chore. (Right? Okay, okay, just checking!) 

I’m really keen to try this line out of Vancouver. Aspen Clean is a natural home cleaning service from B.C. Their in-house line of non-toxic, professional grade cleaning products was so popular they decided to make them available for retail. All the products are 100% natural, biodegradable, vegan and stamped with the tough-to-get Ecocert recognition (Ecocert is a European authority on organic and ecological certification). I’m particularly interested in the Lavender and Tea Tree SuperScrub Natural Cleaning Powder because I always feel like no matter how many eco brands I try I end up reverting to something really nasty for a scrubbing powder. But I think I’ll start with this Whole House Cleaning Kit – kind of a sample pack with a bit of everything – there’s a glass cleaner, a bathroom cleaner, a kitchen cleaner and an all-around cleaner. Since the products use essential oils, they’re scented with lavender, lime, grapefruit and bergamot. None of which sounds like a headache to me. You can order the pack for $66 from the fabulous online resource Lavish and Lime.
