Looking for the best cruelty free cleaning products on the market today? Well look no further!

If there’s something I know about living with dogs, it’s that your cleaning duties are never done. From muddy paw prints, to snout imprints on the windows and grubby blankets, a good owner needs to be decked out with an arsenal of top notch cleaning products.

Trouble is, the majority of cleaning products on the market today are not cruelty free.

So we’re here to help. Not only have we rounded up the best cruelty free cleaning products, we give the guarantee that these products WORK. Because let’s be honest, for a while there were a lot of cleaning products that although cruelty free, they pretty much sucked in the heavy duty cleaning department.

Not only do the products below work fantastically, most of them are part of wider ranges. Which means if you fall in love with one of the picks below, chances are you can deck your whole cleaning kit out with that brand.

Now just to find someone who wants to mop my floors for me…

    I just tried a sample of the multi-surface cleaner from The Honest Co. and love knowing that it’s cruelty-free and free of toxins. I’m trying to switch out all of my household products. Thanks for the great roundup!

  2. It is good to see that companies and making these kind of products . I have used the squirt cleaner and it is good now i will try their skin products because those seem to be very good too.

  3. These products are worth buying as i have bought some of their cleaners and they are better than the others. Try out the bug spray i use it in my clinic as well.

    Isn’t GLYCERIN an animal product? … it’s listed as an ingredient in the Williams Sonoma Dish Soap.

    Cruelty free doesn’t mean Vegan!

    Um….there is vegetable glycerin…I use it to make soap. So actually you can have cruelty products with glycerin…
