3 simple ways to create a safe and non-toxic home for your baby

Becoming a parent means that your plate inevitably becomes very full, very quickly. Yep, parenthood brings with it a whole new need for planning, juggling and multitasking - and needless to say, it’s very easy to overlook something. Say, keeping a clean, tidy and most importantly - non-toxic - home.

You may be an excellent cleaner, mopping up spills in an instant and wiping down grubby hands in one fell swoop - but is there something you’re missing? An easy step that can make all the difference, or perhaps products that clean brilliantly, but aren’t safe around young children.

This is where Koala Eco comes in.

Koala Eco has been making plant-based products for a clean home, body and mind since 2017. Every product in range is Made-Safe certified, which means they’re non-allergenic, not tested on animals, and contain no chemical nasties or synthetic fragrances.

How do Koala Eco products clean effectively?

The main ingredients in Koala Eco products are pure essential oils from Australian native plants, which for centuries have been harvested for their medicinal and therapeutic properties. Literally the ‘essence’ of the plant, essential oils are the highly concentrated compounds secreted in the bark, leaf or fruit. Because these oils are such incredibly good antiseptics and disinfectants, you can be sure that every one of our formulas is carefully balanced and tested to contain just the right amounts: enough to be super-effective - and more importantly - still super-safe!

What is Koala Eco’s most popular product?

The Kitchen Multipurpose cleaner with Lemon Myrtle and Mandarin is easy-to-use, effective, safe and versatile. You can feel confident spraying Multipurpose on everything from fridges and food preparation benches to highchair trays, toys and changing mats, and not worry about any harmful ingredients being left behind. Lemon Myrtle and Mandarin have extraordinary antibacterial, antimicrobial, antifungal, and antiviral properties, and they also combine to make a fresh, completely natural scent.

Here are three ways to create a safe and non-toxic home for your baby:

1. Make a ‘fruit and vegetable bath’ part of your weekly routine

This is a great habit to start when you get the week’s groceries - and the kids will love to join in! Did you know that even organically grown produce is vulnerable to the effects of drift spray, human handling, mould spores, and dirt? You don’t want your children ingesting that - and a simple rinse may not suffice, which is why the Koala Eco Mandarin Fruit & Vegetable Wash is so great. It removes residual pesticides, oils, waxes and agricultural chemicals from fruit and vegetables, and leaves no aftertaste.

2. Don’t let skin sensitivities begin

The Koala Eco Lemon Scented Eucalyptus & Rosemary Laundry Liquid is an incredible option for the entire family, whether you suffer with sensitive skin or not. The gentle yet effective liquid combines two of nature’s best antibacterials in one powerful, aromatic formula. This biodegradable and eco-friendly plant-based formula effortlessly delivers a thorough and effective wash without the use of harsh chemicals, and is safe for sensitive skin.

3. Look out for keen crawlers

From the ages of 6 months until well into toddlerhood, your baby will spend a lot of time on the floor. Walking, crawling, picking things up from the floor, scraping up food from the floor - it’s all going to happen, so you should do your best to plan for it. While you could tackle the area with harsh chemicals designed to kill bacteria, it could mean that these ingredients end up straight in your baby’s mouth and on their precious skin. Koala Eco Mandarin & Peppermint Floor Cleaner combines nature’s most aromatic antiseptics in one powerful, anti-bacterial formula. This biodegradable and eco-friendly plant-based formula effortlessly cuts through grime without the use of harsh chemicals and is safe for use on any surface, especially wood.
