Our Top 5 Eco-Friendly Stain Removers

The sight of red wine, blood or grease on your clothing is enough to give anyone a pang of dread. But if you’ve sworn off harsh, polluting chemical cleaners, how are you possibly going to get that stain out?

First of all, don’t be tempted to reach for that pink bottle. Stain removers can be some of the most harmful chemical cleaners we use every day – there’s a reason they’re covered in warning symbols! Not only can they cause lasting damage to the environment, but they can also harm you through contact with your skin, eyes and lungs.

Luckily, natural stain removers are plentiful, and they’re just as effective as the nasty ones. They’re often cheaper too! We’ve compiled a list of our top five eco-friendly favourites:

Bio-D Laundry & Stain Remover Bar

These plant-based stain remover bars by Bio-D have big cleaning power, without the use of harsh, toxic bleach components. They’re made in Yorkshire, plastic-free, cruelty-free and safe for septic tanks too. The bar is perfect for use on stained clothing as a pre-treatment – simply wet the bar, gently rub it onto the stain, wait a few minutes and then rinse. You can also use these bars for handwashing delicates.
