Here are a few natural cleaning hacks right in time for the busy time associated with return to school.

By Stéphanie Dion

In Canada, September represents back to school and routine for many families with children. After a hectic summer with vacations and a laid-back schedule, when the dust has settled and you turn around to look at the house, you are most likely to wonder “what happened in here”. 

Perhaps this is the time to change our approach and get more family members involved in getting our home back in order. Keep reading for our top time-saving natural cleaning hacks.

Encourage The Kids To Drop A Potty Bomb

One of the best natural cleaning hacks to get your children to help clean is to make it fun. Here’s to the new way of naturally cleaning your toilet. 

Our potty bombs are made with a secret blend of baking soda, citric acid, peroxide, fragrance, and color. Each toilet bomb will fizz in your toilet bowl, cleaning it and refreshing the odors.

This will be the chore where your kids may fight to do! It’s one of our best-selling items because of its usefulness, simplicity and it is fun.

These guys are great. While I’m waiting for them to do their thing I tidy up the rest of the bathroom. They’d be really fun for kids.

No Dishpan Hands Here!


If you are packing a lunch for your children and are trying to be eco-conscious, you likely have more containers and dishes to wash. 

For all containers that are not dishwasher friendly, we have a natural solid dish soap that is made with renewable coconut-based surfactants and is scented with essential oils.

This natural cleaning hack is that after the soap is done, you can use the glass jar as a new eco-friendly lunch container.

Laundry Hack

If your children are anything like mine, when they get home from school they do not look like how I sent them in the morning. Crazy hair, ripped pants, and stains in places you have no idea how they got there.

Our laundry detergent butter is developed for sensitive skin. It is made with coconut-based soap. The only other additives are washing and baking sodas. After washing, we have a scent-free option or the scent will be light because we use quality essential oils for the scented options. 

The natural cleaning hack for the mysterious stains is to use our solid dish soap. Wet the fabric, rub the soap in, let it stay for ten minutes, then add it to a normal load. This is a great way to get the most out of your products.

Bonus Natural Cleaning Hack


Are you children old enough to make their own snacks after school? When you open the microwave door are you greeted with an explosion of splatter? 

Here’s a natural cleaning hack from HGTV to clean that up in no time…

Fill a microwave-safe bowl with water and a lemon wedge. Run it in the microwave for five minutes. After it is done, wait two minutes for it to cool down. Open the door, remove the bowl and wipe down the microwave. Easy peasy, lemon squeezy.


September is stressful enough without having to worry about cleaning the house. Let’s make it fun and easy.
