One of the best perks about cleaning homes is meeting and conversing with the people who live there. In one of my latest projects, I met a woman who was very much into natural cleaning products (hence the reason for hiring Germz Be Gone). She was very knowledgeable about a number of natural cleaning products, but seemed to be most passionate about the natural laundry detergents she uses. She said she’s used quite a few different brands, types, etc., but found her favorites she used every day. Below is the list of what she recommended, plus a few more I added to the list that I really like.
It’s important to note that these are natural detergents. The last thing you would want to do is “clean” your clothes with a bunch of chemicals only to leave behind toxic scents and residues.
Natural detergents are usually formulated with plant-based ingredients and/or enzymes making them eco-friendly, yet very effective in cleaning.
Nature’s Miracle Laundry Boost – My client swore by this stuff! She has a couple dogs, a few cats, birds, and even humans in her home, so, according to her, they get their fair share of stains and unpleasant odors around the house. This stuff knocks out all that.
When I get requests for removing urine smells out of child car seat fabric, this is the stuff I turn to. It’s powerful plant-based detergent coupled with the action of enzymes makes it perfect for people who have pets too.
Melaleuca Mela Power Laundry Detergent
Being super concentrated, what I like about Melaleuca’s Mela Power Detergent is it doesn’t take a whole lot to do wash your clothes. Add just 1/2 oz. to the wash and that’s it! It may appear pricey, but the concentrated form pays for itself in no time.
I’ve been using probiotics exclusively in my cleaning business for almost a decade now. Customers are always surprised at how clean their home or office is after using probiotic cleaners. While the surprise sets in, they realize there is no lingering-perfumy odor left behind. It’s as if their home has been magically cleaned down to the microscopic level. In effect, it has.
Without getting too sciency, probiotics chip away and devour a very thin, hard film made by germs which actually cover/hide dirt and grime. This film is called biofilm. Believe it or not, most cleaners and chemicals (including bleach) can’t penetrate biofilm, resulting in dingy looking surfaces and incessant odors. Probiotics are not only super effective at destroying biofilm, they actively eat up odors at the source. It’s no wonder my clients can tell the difference between the services I offer versus my competitors.
Probiotic cleaners, like the ones from Chrisal or PureBiotics, are nontoxic–safe for pets, plants, animals, and the environment–and won’t cause you harm like their harsh, toxic counterparts. Add probiotics’ cleaning power and sanitizing properties and you have an extremely effective tool to improve the hygiene of your home or office.
You can try some yourself and see how the benefits of probiotics influence your life. I highly recommend PureBiotics. They seem to be undergoing a rebrand of sorts; transforming from Chrisal (a brand I’ve used and trusted for many years) to their newer moniker, but the products are still the same effective probiotic cleaners my clients have grown to love and request. Plus many of their products are concentrated which makes probiotic cleaners a very economical option over toxic-chemical cleaners.
PureBiotics even carries probiotic products for bath and body, oral hygiene, even farms and animals.

I use probiotics in my cleaning business and my own home and you should too. I’ve used Chrisal, AirBiotics and even have my own brand: Germz Be Gone. No matter the brand, though, make the switch from chemical cleaners ASAP.
With over 13 years in the cleaning business, I’ve noticed quite a few improvements over chemical cleaners, which is one reason why I made the switch to probiotics:
no odors in the home (and we have dogs). Trash stinking? Just spray a little probiotic on it (in Chris Rock voice. lol)
stainless steel on the fridge, oven and dishwasher is streak free and sparkles
countertops bling since there is no biofilm to dull their shine
grease is broken down by the enzymes the bacteria create to digest it…making for easier wipe up.
in fact, everything is easier to get up since the biofilm gets broken down.
microbiology lesson: probiotics and other bacteria communicate through “quorum sensing”–colonies of bacteria taking votes on which actions to take for themselves. For instance, if bad bacteria have the numbers (the votes) to infect their host, they will turn on their virulence and infect. If not enough votes, no infection. Doesn’t it make sense to outnumber the bad germs then?
