The Aussan Natural line is 100% natural, non-toxic and botanical. Their products contain no manmade toxins, synthetic fragrances, dyes and preservatives. Right now, the brand includes 19 products in six categories: home, baby, pet, sport, marine and auto.
I chose to review five products from Aussan Natural: Floor Cleaner Concentrate, Fresh Fruit & Vegetable Wash, Oven & BBQ Grill Cleaner, Wheel Cleaner and Car Wash Concentrate. These home and auto care cleaners are safe for humans, pets and the environment. The products are hypoallergenic and made with food grade ingredients. This is a big plus in my book, since I am very picky about what cleaners I use around the house. No questionable chemicals for my family!
Although I usually take my car to the car wash, hubby and I tried the Wheel Cleaner and Car Wash Concentrate and found they did a great job. The wheel cleaner was easy to use and effective. It works on chrome, alloy, painted surfaces, and more. The car wash concentrate easily removed dirt and did not damage the finish. My husband was very happy that it did not leave streaks or remove the wax. And I am happy that it is phosphate-free and safe for the environment. Did you know that phosphates are one of the biggest culprits for ocean pollution? In high levels, they can kill life in rivers and oceans by causing "algae blooms".
I used the Oven & BBQ Grill Cleaner on my oven, after a quite unfortunate lasagna incident. It took several tries because the mess was very, very bad. None of that disgusting chemical smell or nasty fumes I used to get with conventional cleaners - and my oven is spotless. The cleaner works great as a degreaser, too. It does not leave a residue, and can be used on microwaves, grills, smokers, deep fryers, and more.
The floor cleaner concentrate is a low suds formula that is safe to use on sealed and finished floors. Now that winter's over, my family walks around the house barefoot - so it's important to me that what we use to clean the floor is safe. The cleaner can be used on tile, laminate, marble, ceramic, linoleum, stone, hardwood - no matter what flooring you have at your house, this floor cleaner does a fantastic job.
We eat a lot of fresh fruit and veggies and use the Aussan Natural Fresh Fruit & Vegetable Wash every day. It removes dirt and any pesticide residue from produce without leaving a residue or a weird taste. It rinses off easily and comes in a spray bottle - much easier to use than my old wash that came in a squeeze bottle. Although we buy mostly organic fruit and veggies, I feel better knowing that anything bad for me is cleaned off.
Finally, here is what else you'll never find in an Aussan Natural product: alcohol, ammonia, bleach, artificial fragrances, chlorine, formaldehyde, petrochemicals, and SLS. Hooray for green clean!
