The 2016 Best Chemical Free Household Products- What Chemical Free Household Products Do We Use?

As some of you know, I have been on a journey to make my household as chemical free as possible! This change was spurred by health problems and a greater understand of the harm caused by the chemicals filling our homes and products. For those interested in finding out more I highly recommend Toxic Free by Debra Lynn Dadd and you can buy it used on Amazon for $4 including shipping (link right below) or the documentary The Human Experiment (also linked on Amazon below) but free on Netflix. 


It took us several years to convert to an almost entirely harmful chemical free household, mostly because we started before the products were widely available. However, now you can walk into most stores and find a selection of excellent chemical free products.

I will warn you that I do find some chemical free products work better than others. I have tried MANY of them to find products that work just as well as their chemical filled equivalents. While we can’t guarantee that ever item on this list is perfect, they are better for your household than chemical filled products. Here are our 2016 Best Chemical Free Household Products.

Hand Soap- Dr. Bronner’s Almond Scented Castile soap – This soap is made from olive oil and highly concentrated. We only have to buy a bottle a few times a year and we fill up all of our hand soaps (foaming works best) and body washes.

Shampoo- Renpure Originals Argan Oil – This shampoo works great for my thin hair and the matching conditioner isn’t bad either just not as moisturizing as the one below.

Conditioner- Loreal Oleo therapy Conditioner- This is a deep conditioner treatment but I have been using it as a daily conditioner for over a year and it is the best conditioner I have ever used on my thin, dry hair.

Bar Soap- Shugar Soap- I found this soap at Dollar Tree for $1 a bar and it’s so much more expensive online. It’s made entirely of vegetables and smells amazing.

Face Wash- Alba Botanicals- This face wash is great and works really well. You can also find it at Target.

Face Wash- Baking Soda– As you know, baking soda is cheap anywhere but I use it as an exfoliating face wash a few times a week.

Kitchen and Bathroom Cleaner- Rubbing Alcohol- A neighbor once told me that rubbing alcohol used to be used to clean hospitals. I use it for sanitizing and cleaning.

Toothpaste- Trader Joe’s or Tom’s of Maine- I suffer from horrible canker sores but I have realized that I almost never get them when I use Tom’s of Maine toothpaste. It’s about $5 a tube but I have read that Trader Joe’s brand is the same thing and it’s about $2 a tube and it works the same for me.

Body Wash- Trader Joe’s or Dr. Bronners- This is much cheaper from the actual store but I like the scent.

Dish Soap- Honest Dish Soap- Although the one in the picture isn’t the one that we buy we found it at Target for $3.99.

Dishwasher Detergent- Seventh Generation Automatic Dishwashing Gel Lemon Scent– This 7th Generation dishwasher detergent works great and you won’t be eating chemicals.

Hand Cream- Esos or Coconut Oil

Bathroom Cleaner- Ology Bathroom Spray

Perfume- Hugo Organics

Deodorant- Tom’s of Maine Natural Deodorant Stick, Apricot


Laundry Detergent- We make this 4 Ingredient, Dirt Cheap, No Cooking, Chemical Free, Laundry Detergent. No cooking required.Seriously you throw the ingredients in a container, mix and you are done.


Below are a few items we rarely buy but if we still bought these items these are what we would buy. 

Cleaning Wipes

Shave Cream
