When I think of Staples, I think of office supplies. And, in my small little mind, office supplies are papers, files, paperclips, staplers, etc. I completely disregard the fact that you still have to keep the place clean. Because of this I’ve never even thought to shop for cleaning supplies at Staples.
But, crazy enough, they do sell cleaning supplies, and in fact sell many cleaning supplies that are eco-friendly. I try to limit the number of harsh chemicals in our house since I have not only a child, but 3 cats, so being able to have the choice of safer products is very important to me.
Staples provided me with a couple products to try, including all purpose cleaner and disinfecting wipes. The all purpose cleaner is ammonia and phosphate free, and because of that I find it safe to use on my kitchen counters. It provided me with the same clean I would expect of any brand name cleaning product, and I don’t have to worry about harsh chemicals on the surface or in the air. It’s also scent free, so people with scent allergies need not worry.
The disinfecting wipes, made with plant based ingredients, have been helpful for spot cleaning. I’ve used them to clean up all of our remotes (which actually was a little gross after I realized how long it has been since we cleaned them well), our computer keyboards, and smaller surface areas.
Besides these two products, Staples carries many more eco-friendly cleaning and home products. Just a few include:
- Glass cleaner free of alcohol and ammonia
- Paper towels made from 100% recycled fiber with a minimum of 40% post consumer content, whitened without chlorine bleaching
- Toilet cleaner that can be safely used daily on porcelain and porcelain enamel
- Hand soap to keep you clean and healthy
Beyond that, they also sell many sustainable paper products including printing paper, cups, cutlery, plates, files, ink and paper and more.
Have you ever shopped at Staples for cleaning supplies? Am I the last person on Earth to realize you could buy them there?
