Info: Many Types of Eco-Friendly Cleaners Available
Ecozone is a long-standing UK company which makes a whole line of cruelty-free, vegan, allergy-friendly, and of course environmentally-friendly household cleaning and maintenance products. You can choose here between a variety of descalers to remove the lime and/or other types of mineral scale which build up in appliances like kettles, washing machines, dishwashers, irons, and toilets. Some Ecozone products help remove or even prevent odour build-up, as well. And for the pipes they drain to, there's also an enzymatic drain cleaner to safely break down the grease, fats, and food which can cause blockages and build up odours.
For cleaning the inside of your oven, say goodbye to those caustic fumes: Ecozone makes a fast-acting, non-caustic oven cleaning gel which uses natural abrasives like pumice, not toxic chemicals. And if you have a little cooking or ironing mishap, they even produce a small (3-inch long) block which remove burnt-on stains and rust or other residue from pots or pans or the bottom of steam irons.
The Pan & Soleplate Cleaning block can also work on some other household surfaces such as ceramics or glass -- to remove grout from kitchen or bathroom tiles, e.g. -- using just water (and a little elbow grease). It is not designed to be used on non-stick, chromed, or polished surfaces, however.

Coffee Machine Cleaner: Suitable for use on all machines; just follow the manufacturer's instructions. In general, first: ensure no coffee is in the machine and any water filters are removed. Pour 100 ml of cleaner fluid into the water tank, and fill the rest of the tank with water. Run the machine with this solution 3 or 4 times, in all (reusing the same solution), and then leave it in the tank, either overnight (if the machine has not been descaled regularly), or for 2 hours (if it's been descaled every few weeks). Then empty the water tank (either the next morning, or 2 hours later), and fill it with clean water. Run just clean water through the machine 3 or 4 times (if you want, you can run it twice with the same water the first 2 times, then can change the water); then it's ready to use it again as normal. For optimum results, you should clean your machine this way once a month, with normal use.
Enzymatic Drain Cleaning Sticks: Remove one drain stick from the packaging. Drop it directly into the plughole of a sink or basement drain, and let it go to work. Repeat every month to maintain free-flowing, cleaner smelling drains.
Forever Flush 2000, Original Toilet Block: Start with a clean toilet bowl: flush the toilet, and simply pop the unit into the tank / cistern where the water fills up (but not the bowl), where it will continue to work effectively helping to prevent stains and lime scale for up to 2000 flushes. The product may take up to 7 days be fully activated. The blue water indicates the toilet bowl is sanitary, stain free and deodorized.
Kettle & Iron Descaler: To clean a Kettle: Just boil kettle; empty the contents of one packet / sachet into it; wait 30 minutes; and Rinse.
To clean an Iron: dissolve the contents of one sachet in 400 ml of hot water; heat your iron; add the solution you just made to it (instead of just water); get the iron to steam, until it is empty; refill it with fresh water, and steam until empty.
Oven Cleaning Gel: (Not suitable for use with a self-cleaning or continuous cleaning oven.) Shake bottle well before use, and put on rubber gloves. Pour a little onto a damp cloth, and apply to the area needing cleaning (avoid contact with the oven cleaning element or lights), rubbing vigorously in a circular motion. Wipe away residue. Finish by wiping with a damp cloth.
Pan & Soleplate Cleaner: Simply add water to the block (either by dipping it in a bowl or running it under the kitchen tap), then rub it over the stained area to remove burnt-on stains and residue and to help stop the iron dragging on your clothes while ironing.
Caution: this product is not intended for use on non-stick, chromed or polished coatings. Always test in an unobtrusive area first.
Washing Machine & Dishwasher Cleaner:
For Washing Machines: Just pop a tablet into the drum of your empty washing machine (no need to unwrap it - the packaging is soluble). Run a HOT water (60C+) cycle, without a pre-wash.
For Dishwashers: Just pop a tablet (leaving it wrapped is fine) onto the bottom of the empty machine. Run a hot water cycle, without a pre-rinse.
