“Made in Germany! You Know the Germans Always Make Good Stuff!”
That was a tagline on a commercial several years ago. It was humorous and always made me laugh, because there’s a lot of truth to the humor.
So when I was asked to try Frosch green cleaners, which have been named Germany’s Most Trusted Brand by Reader’s Digest for the past 15 years, I quickly said Yes!
I’ve been to Germany several times, and I’m always amazed at the no-nonsense ease and accessibility of green living and sustainability in the country. It’s just a part of their normal lives.
So if a company has risen that high in the green cleaning category in Germany, well then, I definitely want to try it out!
Frosch was started in 1986, and though it has been exported to countries around the world since then, it is just NOW coming to American in 2015.
Frosch Green Cleaners
Using natural ingredients of vegetable origin, there’s a range of cleaning products using plant-based surfactants with minimal use from tropical sources.
The cleaning products come in a range of scents (including lavender, grapefruit, lemon and pomegranate), and unscented.
Frosch sent me a few products to try to put their green cleaners to the test.
Frosch Kitchen Cleaner and Multipurpose Cleaner
Among the products was the pH Neutral Cleaner. This is the first product Frosch created and one of its most popular.
This is a universal cleaner. Just add some of the liquid to water and clean everything from wood to tile to bathrooms. It’s safe on skin, too.
A great use for this pH Neutral Cleaner is to use it for hand washing delicate laundry items. No more Woolite when you’ve got Frosch!
Frosch Dishwashing Liquid
I tried a bottle of Frosch Dishwashing Liquid. I liked the Unscented Sensitive Provitamin Dishwashing Liquid and was really pleased with the lathering and the richness of the liquid.
Formulated with Vitamin B5, this is a gentle dishwashing detergent. I don’t like fragranced cleaning supplies, so that’s why I chose this variety. If you like more fragrance when cleaning, try out the Baking Soda, Aloe Vera or Pomegranate liquids.
Frosch All Purpose Cleaner
The Baking Soda All Purpose Cleaner easily cleaned my countertops. It has a slight fragrance, which I was surprised at. But nothing that lingers.
It is really only worrisome for those that must completely avoid all scents.
The baking soda helps cuts through grease, so this would make a great addition in the kitchen for cleaning up after cooking.
The Frosch detergent made for babies was not available when I tried out Frosch brands products. However, they do have great natural liquid laundry detergent for sensitive skin. Along with a Frosch Baby Liquid Fabric Softener.
More Green Cleaning Brands I Recommend
I like Frosch Brand a lot. There are also plenty more green cleaning brands that I would recommend, too.
Among the tops is Branch Basics. (Get $10 off when you click through with my link.) This plant and mineral based cleaning concentrate works crazy good! You can literally use it on everything from laundry to toilets to your hands as a hand wash. It’s great because once you buy the starter kit with the bottles, all you need to buy from then on is the cleaning concentrate.
