Dissolvable plastic-free shower cleaning
The shower can be one of the most challenging places to clean, with the streaks and watermarks. This daily shower spray refill does all the hard work, leaving your bathroom sparkling.
Iron & Velvet offer a range of fragrances in their shower cleaners; Grapefruit, Clary Sage, May Chang and Fragrance Free. This starter pack comes with one of each of the essential oil fragranced products and 2 Fragrance Free, so you can experience each of them and decide which is your favourite for your next order.
Iron & Velvet's innovative water-soluble refill sachets can be used in any existing trigger spray you may have at home eliminating single use bottles, or if you prefer you could use another container and avoid the use of plastic altogether! Simply drop, fill, shake, repeat. One bottle - zero waste!
These cleaning products have been developed using plant derived, sustainably sourced active ingredients, as well as pure essential oils for fragrances wherever possible. When diluted they are over 99% natural. They are free from the normal harsh chemicals and nasties.
Other Iron & Velvet cleaning products are available.
How to use:
1. DROP your sachet into your labelled reusable bottle (labels included).
2. FILL your bottle with lukewarm tap water (your instruction leaflet will tell you how much).
3. SHAKE it up and watch the sachet dissolve to create your cleaning product.
4. REPEAT over and over again. Keep the same bottle and just add a new sachet each time. One bottle; zero waste
Ingredients: The ingredients in Iron & Velvet's plastic free cleaning sachets are based around naturally derived plant extracts and materials including pure essential oils for the fragrances. They use C12-15 Alcohol Ethoxylate and Isopropyl Alcohol at less than 0.4% and Monoethanolamine at less than 0.01% in the end cleaning solution for stabilising the essential oils and ensuring a safe pH. The antibacterial agent is Quaternary ammonium compounds, benzyl-C12-14 (even-numbered)-alkyldimethyl, chlorides which is only found in their antibacterial products.
The sachets are made from a PVOH film which has been approved for use in pharmaceuticals, so you can be sure it’s a safe alternative to plastics. Once diluted it biodegrades in just a couple of weeks and leaves no microplastics.
All cleaners are pH neutral or slightly alkaline depending on your water used to dilute and they don’t contain harsh acids or chemicals so they are suitable to use on a wide variety of surfaces. We’d always recommend testing on a small inconspicuous area first and checking with your surface manufacturer if you have any concerns.
Storage: Sachets should be stored somewhere dry and cool (they are water soluble so putting our cardboard packaging inside a metal tin might be a good idea.) Like all cleaning products, they should be stored in a high, locked cupboard away from children and pets. The sachets and the diluted solutions have a shelf life of 1 year.
Iron & Velvet manufacture everything under one roof in the heart of the West Midlands and have a small team of highly skilled staff to ensure the highest quality and lowest carbon footprint they possibly can.
Their paper and cardboard packaging comes from FSC (Forest Stewardship Council) certified sources.
