Cleaning the house is quite a chore. However, it does help when I use products that make it more efficient and easy for me to do. Throughout the years, I purchased brands that my mom used just because it’s what I used growing up. However, when I switched to a greener lifestyle, I had to explore brands and products on my own, like Full Circle.
I received several cleaning products from Full Circle to review. Overall, all the products function as they are supposed to. My favorite part about the products is how well they contributed to my eco-friendly life; whether it’s reducing waste, using recycled materials, or cleaning with safer alternatives.
Full Circle products
- Scrubbing brushes, vegetable brushes
- Sponges, towels, paper towel alternatives
- Bins, racks, waste bags
- Spray bottles
- Brooms, mops, duster
This is by far my favorite eco-friendly sponge. I have tried other plant-based sponges from green companies and conventional companies trying to break into the green market, and the walnut scrubber sponges by Full Circle is the best, in my opinion. I buy this sponge by the dozen since finding it in brick and mortar stores is sometimes not easy. Like other sponges, the scrubber does pill after a while, but not as quickly as other brands.
I love that the handle on the laid back brush is made with bamboo and the bristles are made with recycled plastic. Another plus is that once the bristles are too grungy or worn out to be used, instead of throwing away the whole thing, you just dispose of the bristles. I used this brush not as a dish-washing brush, but to scrape food off plates, bowls, etc. before putting them in the dishwasher. The one negative experience I had with this brush is that because it is made from wood, it developed some black mold spots due to moisture. It might be the result of it constantly getting wet and not drying completely. In the event that happened, I just made sure to scrub the handle very well and wash in very hot water.
A while back, I started making my own cleaning agents using vinegar, baking soda, essential oils, etc. to clean around the house. If you make your own cleaner, or thinking about it, the spray bottle is an efficient way go about it. The Full Circle bottle has measurements on the side and a built-in citrus juicer. It also comes with a recipe book for DIY cleaners. I didn’t use this bottle with essential oils since glass bottles are best for them. If I wanted to clean with a fresh lemon, this is what I used. The one thing I noticed about the sprayer is that sometimes it leaked. I’ve used it for quite some time now and it occasionally leaked at the place where you screw the sprayer. It didn’t always do that, but only sometimes. I haven’t yet figured out what it is I’m doing that made it leak. Other than that, the entire bottle still worked.
The microfiber cloth was my go-to for cleaning glass and windows. It’s actually the perfect size; not too big so it’s clumsy in my hands and not too small so that I have to get a new cloth to finish the job. There were no streaks or lint left on the surface after cleaning. As for cleaning glass, this microfiber cloth reduced my paper towel waste to zero. I can’t ask for more than that.
Full Circle product are found on many online retailer and select brick and mortar stores.
