4. Dr. Bronner's Sal Suds Liquid Cleaner

From the venerable Dr. Bronner's, Sal Suds Liquid Cleaner is a concentrated hard-surface all-purpose cleaner that is, like most Dr. B products, wildly versatile. Like, for laundry, countertops, mopping the floor, or even mixing with baking soda to make a powerful scouring agent for bathtubs and sinks, notes literature for Sal Suds. "It is made with plant-based surfactants and natural fir needle and spruce essential oils (no cheap, harsh pine stump oil), without any synthetic dyes, fragrances or preservatives. Perfect for general household cleaning (dishes, floors, laundry, etc.), it cleans and rinses with exceptional power, yet it is mild and gentle on the skin," the promise. Also, bonus points for being 100 percent cruelty-free, as certified by the Coalition for Consumer Information on Cosmetics, and it will biodegrade rapidly after doing its job.
