The safe and eco-friendly cleaning products are not only what the environment needs but is also great to keep the hygiene quotient high in the times of the pandemic
We are living in difficult times and being conscious about health and hygiene has become the topmost priority. More so, at present, when we all are locked up in homes and need to keep our living spaces clean and safe. But what should you buy? If hygiene and effectiveness is on your mind then there are brands and varieties a dime a dozen in the market and each loaded with harmful chemicals. Not to mention, the endless amount of plastic that goes into packaging and dispensing!
So how do you know what’s safe and yet effective enough? Introducing Blueland Cleaning Products, as seen on ABC’s Shark Tank, Season 11. During the pitch, shark Kevin O’Leary aka, Mr Wonderful found this product viable enough to invest in and pushed the business forward.

What is Blueland?
Founded by Sarah Paiji Yoo, Blueland produces cleaning products formulated from safe, eco-friendly ingredients and distributes them in reusable packaging. Driven by her personal experience as a mother with a newborn child, Yoo was determined to reduce the use of plastics and use safe cleaning products at her home. And thus, the range of Blueland Cleaning Products was born.

4 Tablets. Each color-coded is matched with the corresponding bottle: blue for cleaning glass, pink for the bathtub and tiles, yellow for multi-surface cleaning and gray for the hand soap.
Cleaning tablets makes 20oz, and soap tablet makes 9oz of cleaning solution each.
All you need to do is fill the dispenser bottles with water, add the tablet, let it dissolve and go on a cleaning spree!
