Non-toxic cleaning products that actually work, like the Glass Cleaner Concentrate Tablets pictured here.

What are the best non-toxic cleaning products for my home?

As you might expect, the best non-toxic cleaning products are the ones that actually work. They also tend to be products that don't include ingredients that add unnecessary color or dilution for products, just to give a certain aesthetic or save money in products. At Ware, we focus on household cleaning products that have natural and non-toxic ingredients, formulas that are at least as effective as the store-bought alternatives, and smell incredible (thanks to essential oils that are often active ingredients). An additional benefit of the clean ingredients in these products is that they are often safe for folks with heightened chemical sensitivities whether because they have babies in the house, are battling cancer, or managing eczema.

We thoroughly test products before we ever bring them into Ware, so we can stand by them in our own homes as well as yours. We also search high and low to find producers that are as local to our Asheville shop as possible. This means you can make a purchase for your home, while supporting small-batch, regional businesses rather than SC Johnson or Clorox. If you're into that kind of thing.


Refillable and non-toxic cleaning products for your home.


Here are a few of our favorite non-toxic, and low-waste cleaning products that are ready to ship anywhere in the US or Canada:

  1. Laundry Powder: This effective and HIGHLY concentrated powder (it only takes a tablespoon of powder for a medium load) has quite the cult following. It's our best selling product in the store by far. It works so well that people with careers in restaurants and construction swear by it, as do parents who use cloth diapers or have little ones with sensitive skin. The same is true of the growing number of folks with extreme skin sensitivities like eczema and psoriasis who swear by this stuff. Oh, and it's made 45 minutes from our store by professional cleaners. (If you need even more simplification, we've laundry detergent sheets with your name on them.)
  2. Dishwasher Detergent: Another best-seller, this detergent just works. For those who have harder water or a metal-lined dishwashing machine, we recommend adding white vinegar to the rinse-aid reservoir.
  3. All-Purpose Cleaner, Glass Cleaner, and Bathroom Cleaner Concentrate Tablets: The ultimate in shippable low-waste and effective cleaning. Truly. One tablet mixes with warm water to make 16 ounces of cleaning liquid in whatever spray bottle you already have. Or you can buy one of ours. It's hard to compete with the price of these as compared to just about any other non-toxic household cleaners on the market. 
  4. Dishwashing Block: One of the earliest solid dish soaps on the market, and still the best. We love this dish soap and so do more than a thousand of Ware customers. Just rub your dish brush on top and get to cleaning those dishes. It doubles as a dreamy stain remover on clothes and carpets alike. We also like to draw on our stove top with it like a crayon and then scrub the weeks of cooked-on food away. (If you need liquid dish soap - or your household does - we've got a wonderful option for that, too!)
  5. Toilet Bowl Tablets: Drop one in your toilet. Let it dissolve. Scrub scrub scrub. Sparkle sparkle sparkle.
