Eco Clean: Zabada

I heard through the “eco grapevine” that there was a new cleaning system available now in the US, that used absolutely ZERO chemicals… I was intrigued. I checked out the website and straight away I liked the guys at Zabada – check out their video below!

When you order the Zabada range you receive a box of gloves and fibers, and the idea is that they work using only cold water. Really? I wanted to know more about it and how it works. I checked out the website again and found videos on how to use each one (it couldn’t be more simple!) and how the special fibers are better at removing the yucky stuff in your house than any of the poisonous cleaners. How awesome is that?

For those of you who love details, here’s the science:

Zabada gloves loosen and trap the dirt in the unique fibers using nature’s super-solvent: water. It’s cleaning using a safe mechanical process, not the chemical one we’ve been conditioned to believe we need. It’s as simple as wet, wipe, drywet the fiber glove with cold water, wipe the surface using the glove, and dry with the marvel. No need to stress about cross contamination either, Zabada have taken care of that by developing different fibers for different surfaces and areas in your home.

If you’re like me, you haven’t had chemical cleaners in your house in a very long time, but what about all of the bottles? There are also many “eco” cleaners out there that have questionable ingredients too. With Zabada, gone are the days of harsh chemicals which require a Hazmat suit – welcome to 21st century cleaning. Not to mention, Zabada is helping to save the environment from more waste with their special fibers that last 2-3 years. And you can send back used cloths to be repurposed too…very cool!

Simple, effective, and completely safe.

    Exactly the kind of thing I’ve been looking for. I’ve already replaced
    my mop with one that only uses water and now I can toss everything else!
    Thanks, Alicia.

    How Zabada that? It clean without chemicals. That’s great news for moms, kids, pets and people, like me, that hate all the chem-trails and smells. Yuck. Great idea, gonna get it. Finally, Zabada has been thinking about me. :)

    Looks like it’s similar in concept to Norwex. Zabada is made in Austria while Norwex cloths are manufactured in China. Anyone know of other comparisons?
