***SHOP CLOSURE***

Don't panic, we are just taking a well deserved break. As the postal service is struggling to distribute all the packages it's receiving, we have taken the decision to close the shop until the New Year. There is very little chance that any orders placed from today would be received before the 24th December, and too many items risk being lost or damaged...

It's been a very challenging year, to say the least. Cleaning our homes has never been so important, and I thank every one of our humble customers for continuing to support us. It means the world to know that our humble cleaning stuff is helping to keep you clean, and safe from harsh chemical biocides and synthetic fragrances.

Although our lives will slowly return to some kind of strange normal, the virus is still active, which means that cleaning will always be very important, however, disinfectants/biocides should always be used with extreme caution due to the fact that these products kill all bacteria. Good and bad. Biocides can also irritate the lungs and cause coughing, especially for people that already suffer from conditions such as asthma.

It's not what people want to hear, but regular and thorough cleaning of the busiest areas of the home will always be the best way to keep our homes clean and as safe as possible. That means things like door handles, work surfaces, taps, kettles, fridge doors and handles as well as TV remotes, the computer mouse, and touchscreens.

One day, this pandemic will be over, but cleaning will always be one of the best ways to keep our homes safe spaces. There is no long term benefit to over using industrial strength chemicals, so less is more. Less harmful chemicals, more simple and regular cleaning cleaning.

We look forward to seeing you again in 2021. we wish you all a safe and happy festive season, and a hopeful New Year.
Thank you,
Marie

No dirty secrets!

Since cleaning products became commercialised in the 1930's - it was cheaper to use synthetic petrochemical ingredients than traditional soap. Nowadays, the cleaning industry is worth billions, and is mostly dominated by names like P&G, Unilever and SC Johnson.

These comapnies have been creating chemical cocktails without any thought for the impact on the environemnt, or for human health. With increased numbers of people suffering with allergies, people are now seeking more natural products to use in their home. Since our launch in 2015, we have been completely transparent with our ingredients so that people can see exactly what's inside - we don't think anyone should be expected to buy products that conatin 'secret ingredients', but the big brands still work this way, and it's not good.

I'm not a scientist, but cleaning up is really simple, but the big brands would rather make it seem more difficult than it really is in order to keep you buying their harmful, money making formulas. We think it's time that people get to choose exactly what they are using in their homes, let's face it, we don't blindly buy any other products these days. Don't get greenwashed, get fresh instead.

    Hello. I'm Marie, the Chief Scrubber at humblestuff HQ. I have been a self employed domestic cleaner since 2005, so I've used a lot of highly toxic cleaning products. That's why I created humblestuff - to make cleaning greener.
