After many years of working as a domestic cleaner it became apparent that, although there are many enjoyable elements, there are also adverse effects associated with the job. After doing an eco clean with natural products for an afternoon, I felt far better than when using synthetic cleaning products.
Beneficial To You
While using chemical cleaning products such as bleach I often had side effects such as sore eyes, dry and cracked skin and wheezing particularly in winter when windows are not open as much. Since changing to natural, eco friendly cleaning I can honestly say that these things have disappeared, along with the extreme tiredness that seem to hit me every afternoon. It really is better to go natural. My case is obviously an extreme one due to the amount of hours I work using cleaning products constantly but does demonstrate the cumulative effects of the harmful toxins in many commonly used cleaning materials.
Once I made the switch to using only my own naturally made products, I knew immediately that I would never go back.
As well as the associated problems with toxins, the amount of plastic usage day to day was of great concern. By using our own natural and zero waste products I have managed to save around 20-30 bottles per week from being recycled or disposed of. If only a small percentage of the country changed their habits, we could save a huge amount of plastic entering either recycling centres, landfill sites and most importantly, the world's oceans.
We have now produced a whole range of handmade natural products that leave sparkling, fresh results throughout your home. Our products harness the power of nature and leave behind no harmful residues only wonderful natural aromas from premium pure essential oils. We never add fragrance oils as these are artificially mixed in a laboratory and we feel that natural is best.

Beneficial To The Environment
The chemicals used in the majority of synthetic cleaning products can be harmful, dangerous and polluting to your home and the water system. Volatile Organic Compounds (VOC's) are chemicals that pollute the air around us and are used in many products such as cleaners and air fresheners. They have been known to have an adverse affect on health with continued long term usage and can exacerbate existing conditions. They are also not easily identifiable on the ingredients list on products making it difficult for consumers to avoid them if they wanted.
The plastic pollution problem cannot be underestimated or ignored anymore. Plastics make up a large portion of the waste that is filling our oceans and the equivalent of a truckload of plastics enter the oceans every single minute. Once the plastic and other waste find their way into our beautiful, blue oceans they are a danger to all marine life. Over 1 million marine creatures die every year through plastic pollution and it is estimated that 90% of all seabirds have ingested plastic. The UK supermarkets alone produce 800,000 tonnes of plastic each year with this set to rise and around 50% of all plastic produced around the world is intended for single use. These facts are just a few of the eye-watering statistics that are available regarding this huge problem. By using Mrs Sparkle's Natural Products, we can all make a difference to these numbers and help our seas and wildlife. After all, Little Changes Mean a Lot.
