Why They’ll Love It: Cleaning products aren’t the first things you think of when gifting, we admit. But these biodegradable, non-toxic cleaners—available for dishes, bathrooms, floors and more—are hard not to love having on hand. We like them tossed in a festive healthy gift basket for a useful party host gift, or silently stocked (with a big red bow, of course) in the closet of a new parent who is concerned about the household surfaces Baby may consider lunch one day. The lack of harsh fumes they produce may also be particularly helpful to asthmatics or those with other breathing difficulties.
Beyond being safe for family, pets and the environment, they come in a variety of non-cleanery scents (no more spray-and-run-for-air action necessary). One of our editors is obsessed with the fresh aroma of the lemon ginger Squirt+Mop Hard Floor Cleaner—her linoleum has never gotten so much love.
