Having a clean and tidy home is one of the greatest forms of self-care. Cleaning and organizing the space where you spend most of your time can reduce stress, boost your mood, and keep your immune system strong.

With Spring right around the corner and a global pandemic still raging, the matriarch of curly tresses wants you to clean like a pro. Here are three Black-owned cleaning products to help you protect your peace and support the culture.

1. Reel Paper 

Remember that time the world shut down and wiping your bum became a privilege? While some companies went searching for more trees to meet the demand, the owners of Reel were already stocked with a budget and eco-friendly option. 

Founded by Lagos native, Derin Oyekan, Reel toilet paper, and paper towels are made of 100% bamboo. Due to its unique composition, bamboo is naturally designed for strength and has fibers that make it softer than products made from recycled paper and wood. 

Whether you’re drying off your Golden Goddess wine glass or wiping down your Nourish to Flourish cutting board after a tasty meal, try using a Black-owned, biodegradable Reel paper towel to help ensure we leave behind a better world for the next generation.  

2. Good Vibes

The standard kitchen countertop contains 488 bacteria per square inch. With most of our families still sheltering in place, that number can rise dramatically throughout the day. 

Good Vibes all-purpose cleaner is a powerful, plant-based home sanitizer that helps reduce the transmission of harmful germs and bacteria. Created by Ymani Efunyale, the multi-purpose disinfectant outshines the competition by offering tantalizing scents like sandalwood, frankincense & myrrh, and ocean views. 

So the next time you want to watch your Bloom Wildly garden flag blow in the wind, let this Black woman-owned multi-surface cleaner make your windows shine!

3. Pur Home

There’s a famously repeated notion that “When you look good, you feel good.” With pandemic-induced depression on the rise, using Pur Home’s non-toxic laundry detergent, and whitener is a great way to keep your clothes looking stylish and ready to wear.

With a primary mission of causing no harm to mother Earth, CEO Angela Richardson set out to create a collection of simple and sustainable cleaning products. Pur Home also works to educate consumers about recycling and reducing waste by finding other uses for containers and sourcing from companies that are ethical in their production of ingredients, and do not pollute.

From hand sanitizer to bathroom cleaner and dishwasher tabs, this minimalist-minded Black woman-owned home goods company is a trailblazer in ecological advancement and a highly praised solution for your Spring cleaning needs. 

As you get ready to tackle stubborn stains or a seriously cluttered closet, try out a few of these minority-owned cleaning products and let your peace bloom wildly.
