Are your cleaning sprays 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 sprays effective? We have thoroughly tested our eco cleaning sprays against mainstream alternatives to ensure they achieve the same effective clean, but with much safer ingredients. Despite being 100% non-toxic, our cleaning spray set is able tackle mess just as efficiently as mainstream brands, leaving your surfaces sparkling and home free of nasties.
How long does one cleaning spray refill last? Most customers get through one refill (a full bottle of cleaning spray) every 2 months.
What surfaces can I use your cleaning sprays on? Our multipurpose cleaning spray is designed to remove grease and grime from wood, stone, tile and most sealed surfaces. Our bathroom cleaning spray has been perfected to remove limescale, soap scum, and watermarks from tubs, tiles, ceramic, stainless steel and porcelain. And our glass and mirror cleaning spray will achieve a streak-free shine on glass, mirrors, stainless steel and other shiny surfaces. Spray, let stand for a few seconds, wipe away with a clean dry cloth.
What do your surface cleaning sprays smell like? Our surface cleaning sprays are fragranced with natural and organic essential oils. In the The Spray Set, the multipurpose is geranium, the bathroom is eucalyptus and the glass and mirror is peppermint.
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.
Are your cleaning sprays 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. Our products are free from bleach, ammonia, chlorine, artificial colours, synthetic fragrances, palm oil, parabens, pesticides, petroleum, phosphates, SLS and triclosan.

How do I mix your refillable cleaning sprays? 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 cleaning spray 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.
