Does anybody know of a website I could visit to get a list of animal-friendly household products (like washing-up liquid, washing powder, etc).<br><br><br><br>
Thanks in advance.

<a href="http://www.veganessentials.com" target="_blank">http://www.veganessentials.com</a> has some, IIRC<br><br>
Vinegar, water, and baking soda can be used to clean pretty much anything. Use a paste of baking soda and water instead of powdered cleanser; 3 part water mixed with 1 part vinegar makes a great cleaner for glass, tile, and countertops; undiluted vinegar will kill mildew; just a dab of orange or lemon oil easily replaces furniture polish.<br><br>
There is a brand called Seventh Generation that makes good, animal-friendly, biodegradable cleaning products.<br><br>
Make sure detergents and washing-up liquids (I'm guessing that's the same as dish detergent) is phosphate-free. Phosphates cause algae blooms, which deoxygenate the water and kill aquatic flora and fauna.

Shaklee has an all purpose cleaner that is organic. Can be used for multiple tasks and when I'm done I poor the solution on the plants outside. (i.e. after moping the floors) <a href="http://www.shaklee.net" target="_blank">www.shaklee.net</a>

Benny,<br><br><br><br>
Buy local, buy from sites and shops in Aussie (and this is from a Kiwi <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/wink3.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=";)"> ), and at any rate it'll cost a fortune to get stuff from overseas when you take into account money conversion and p&p.<br><br><br><br>

I highly recommend the cruelty free shop, I use it regularly. I get my washing powder, toilet cleaner etc from there, as well as skin care products.
