This post is all about cruelty free cleaning products.

Your house can be spotless while using products not tested on animals. In addition to beauty and personal care products being tested on animals, household cleaning products can also be tested on animals.

Some of the terrible animal experiments done to household cleaning products and test their ingredients includes having chemicals dripped into animals’ eyes, rubbed onto their skin, and forced down their throats. Thankfully there are various brands that do not suppose the harm of animals I have compiled that list here for you.

In this post you will find a list of cruelty-free and vegan cleaning brands that do not test on animals. All these cleaning product brands are cruelty-free and vegan. If you already have a vegan lifestyle this post will help you discover new brands that work effectively. If you don’t have a cruelty-free lifestyle this post will make it easy for you to switch to a kind lifestyle.
