I received complimentary products in exchange for my honest review.
I love discovering new natural cleaning products. Like many of us, I want to get rid of as many nasty chemicals from my home as possible. Not only are they potentially bad for our health, I want to eliminate the possibility of poisoning my children and pets should they get into the cabinet under the sink.
Enter Puracy with their line of plant-based cleaning products.
Puracy sent me their hand soap, laundry detergent, multi-surface cleaner, and dishwashing liquid for review.
With having a child still in diapers I am washing my hands a lot. I love hand soaps that smell nice but am not typically a big fan of fake smelling soaps. What exactly does a spring breeze smell like anyway? I loved this soap. The pump bottle looks nice on my counter and the lavender & vanilla soap smells earthy and delicious without smelling fake.
Ingredients: Purified Water, Sodium Lauryl Ether Sulfate (Natural Cleanser), Aloe Vera-Based Surfactant (Proprietary Plant-Based Cleanser), Vegetable Glycerin (Plant-Based Hand Softener), Citric Acid (Plant-Based pH Adjuster), Lavender Essential Oil, Vanilla Essential Oil, Methylisothiazolinone (Preservative)
The free and clear laundry detergent is just that, free and clear of scents or dyes. I prefer that my laundry not smell like anything other than clean so I was glad that it wasn’t scented. It is 4x concentrated so a little goes a long way. I use about 1/4 cup because we have very hard water and our clothes were clean. No stains or stinks were left behind and there wasn’t any fading. My only complaint is that when I put the cap back on the bottle some detergent drips down the side of the bottle and on my shelf. It’s not a huge deal but you may want to wipe the bottle off before putting it away.
I even tried it on a couple of loads of my cloth diapers and it got them clean without any issues. In general I prefer powdered detergents for my diapers so I wouldn’t use this for them full-time personally, but if you wanted to try it does work. This detergent does contain enzymes which some people may not want to use but personally I prefer an enzyme detergent on my cloth diapers. Enzymes eat away proteins (ie: urine and feces) so you are left with fewer stains, but this is my personal preference.

I’m not going to lie, I’m a messy cook. When I’m done with dinner you’d think the Swedish Chef had been there. This means that I need a good cleaner. A natural surface cleaner is most important to me since it comes close to where I prepare food. I don’t want to risk getting a bunch of chemicals and junk in my dinner. Puracy’s multi-surface cleaner smells good and worked well without all of the added toxins that commercial cleaners have. I loved it.
Ingredients: Purified Water, Decyl Glucoside (Plant-Based Cleanser), Alcohol Ethoxylate (Sugar-Based Cleanser), Vegetable Oil Surfactant (Plant-Based Cleanser), Natural Green Tea & Lime Fragrance, Benzisothiazolinone (Biodegradable Preservative)
First I have to say that the green tea and lime dish soap smells amazing! It has a good consistency similar to any other commercial dish soap you would buy at the supermarket but without all of the scary ingredients. It lathers up well but doesn’t lather as much as a commercial soap, but that’s okay. It isn’t the bubbles that get your dishes clean. I don’t do a lot of hand washing but the dishes that I did wash with this came out clean just easily as they would with any other dish soap. Did I mention that it smells wonderful?
