Are Spruce cleaning products antibacterial? We do not use harsh chemical-based antibacterial agents – essentially pesticides – because research shows that whilst these claim to kill 99.99% of bacteria, this bacteria can simply recolonise and repopulate from a single cell just 20-minutes later. The harsh ingredients in these products contribute to health problems like hormonal imbalances and asthma, and cause more harm to your health rather than keeping you safe. Instead, we carefully select natural and plant-based surfactants for an effective yet safer clean.
Are your natural cleaning products in the Super Sprucer Starter Bundle effective? We have thoroughly tested our natural cleaning products against mainstream alternatives to ensure they achieve the same effective clean, but with much safer ingredients. Despite being 100% non-toxic, our products are able tackle mess just as efficiently as mainstream brands, leaving your surfaces sparkling and home free of nasties.
How long will the Super Sprucer Starter Bundle last? Surface Sprays: The eternity bottles are designed to be refilled infinitely. Each cleaning spray refill pack makes a full-sized 500ml bottle which lasts most customers around 2 months. Floor Cleaner: One pouch lasts up to 25 cleans on average. Sponges: One sponge typically lasts 1 month depending on frequently you use it, and for what purpose. Dry thoroughly between uses to increase the longevity.
What surfaces can I use the Super Sprucer Starter Bundle products on on? Multipurpose: tiles, countertops, stone, wood and most sealed surfaces. Bathroom: tubs, tiles, ceramic, stainless steel and porcelain to remove limescale, soap scum and watermarks. Glass & Mirror: glass, mirrors, and stainless steel. Floor: sealed wood, tiles, stone, laminate, lino and other hard surface floors. Sponges: for washing up and wiping any surface.

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 sprays with spa-smelling organic essential oils which have been used in cleaning for centuries due to their natural antimicrobial and antibacterial properties.
