Are your home cleaning products antibacterial? We do not use harsh chemical-based antibacterial agents because research shows that these are detrimental to our health. Learn more in our anti-bac blog.
Are your natural home cleaning products effective? We have thoroughly tested our products against mainstream alternatives to ensure they achieve the same effective clean, but with much safer ingredients. Despite being 100% non-toxic, our house cleaning products are able tackle mess just as efficiently as mainstream brands, leaving your surfaces sparkling and home free of nasties.
How long does one cleaning refill last? Most customers get through one refill (a full bottle) every 2 months.
What surfaces can I use your home cleaning products on? Our multipurpose cleaner removes grease and grime from wood, stone, tile and most sealed surfaces. Our bathroom cleaner removes limescale, soap scum and watermarks from tubs, tiles, ceramic, stainless steel and porcelain. Spray, let stand for a few seconds, wipe away with a clean dry cloth.
What do your house cleaning products smell like? Our eco friendly cleaning products are fragranced with natural and organic essential oils. In the Starter Kit Duo, the multipurpose is geranium and the bathroom is eucalyptus.
Why do you use essential oils to fragrance your products? We are firmly against synthetic fragrances which contain harmful chemicals. Instead, we fragrance our cleaning refills with spa-smelling organic essential oils which have been used in cleaning for centuries due to their natural antimicrobial and antibacterial properties.
Are your home cleaning products free from toxic chemicals? We only use plant-based, non-toxic ingredients to keep your family and the planet safe. All our ingredients rate highly on the Environmental Working Group (EWG) and European Chemical Agency (ECHA) for human and environmental safety.

How do I mix your home cleaning products? Spruce is super easy to mix and use. No scientific experiments needed. Simply empty the refill contents into your corresponding refillable Eternity bottle, fill with tap water slowly and get cleaning within minutes. No need to shake. Use only one refill pack per bottle. We recommend using room temperature tap water for best results.
How do I properly dispose of the home cleaning refill packaging? Our refills are packed in 100% plastic-free, home and industrial compostable paper. Dispose of it with your food waste (which we hope is not sent to the landfill). Cut it up in small bits and compost at home. The pack will turn into rich fertiliser for your plants. Alternatively, dispose of it in your regular waste bin. Do not recycle with paper or plastic. All outer packaging is plastic-free, recyclable, and printed with biodegradable inks.
Are Spruce eternity bottles eco-friendly and recyclable? We have carefully designed our bottles to last over 100’s of cleanings so you never have to dispose of your bottle. Our bottles will not break, leach or discolour. Our bottles are made of aluminium which is infinitely and most commonly recycled material worldwide. In fact, more than 75% of the aluminium in use today is recycled. Enjoy your refillable bottles guilt-free.
