A plastic-free cleaning revolution - dissolvable sachets and use your own containers!
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!
These cleaning products have been developed using plant derived, sustainably sourced active ingredients, as well as pure essential oils for fragrances wherever possible. This means up to 70% of Iron & Velvet's products are fully natural ingredients.
The sachets are made from Poly Vinyl Alcohol (PVA) which has been approved for use in pharmaceuticals, so you can be sure it’s a safe alternative to plastics.
Reuse your own container or trigger spray bottle. Just make sure it holds 500ml of water (or 250ml for oven and floor cleaners) to ensure the correct dilution. Make sure to attach the included labels onto your container so you don’t muddle up what’s what.
Your 5 sachets of cleaning solutions come in a nifty, recyclable cardboard box with full instructions and stickers to mark your bottles.
This selection box contains:
- 1 x Bathroom Surface Cleaner - Orange & Ginger
- 1 x Kitchen Surface Cleaner - Mango
- 1 x Oven Cleaner (odourless)
- 1 x Glass & Mirror Cleaner - Apple & Mint
- 1 x Floor Cleaner - Sandalwood
How to use: Simply clean a bottle or jar big enough for your cleaning solution, pop in a sachet, follow the enclosed instructions and top up with warm water, replace and tightly seal the lid, shake a little and within a couple of minutes you’ll see the sachet dissolve and the liquid inside mix with the water to make your cleaner!
Using warm water the sachets will take around 2-4 minutes to fully dissolve with a bit of shaking. Using hot water they’ll dissolve more quickly but you may find the cleaner is a little hazy, don’t worry, it will still work the same. Using cold water will take longer but again, it will work exactly the same in the end.
Ingredients: Iron & Velvet based their products on naturally derived plant extracts and materials including pure essential oils for the fragrances, a sustainably sourced palm oil derived soap and a secondary soap made from waste plant material left over from biofuel manufacture. They also 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. Their antibacterial agent is Quaternary ammonium compounds, benzyl-C12-14 (even-numbered)-alkyldimethyl, chlorides which is only found in the antibacterial products.
Storage: Iron & Velvet recommend storing the sachets in a dry, cool, secure location, away from children and pets within 5-35°C for the longest shelf life, the same goes for diluted solutions.
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.
Don’t think they’re only concerned about plastic pollution at the expense of other environmental factors. Their paper and cardboard packaging comes from FSC (Forest Stewardship Council) certified sources and the palm oil derived soap ingredient from an RSPO (Roundtable on Sustainable Palm Oil) certified supplier.
