When we make the switch to cruelty-free products, we usually swap out our animal-tested mascara and deodorant, but many of us forget that other products in our home may have been tested on animals, too. (Think dish soap, laundry detergent, glass cleaner, etc.)
The good news is that finding cruelty-free home-cleaning products is easier than ever before. In fact, good-ole Target carries many brands that offer a wide range of products that aren’t tested on animals, so you can keep your home cruelty-free. Check it out:
Because our Sal Suds Biodegradable Cleaner is so concentrated, it's excellent for tough cleaning jobs. Here are some recipes: • Car wash: ½ Tbsp. in a 3 gallon bucket of water • Carpets: 1 drop of Sal Suds in a carpet cleaner with hot water • Laundry: 2-3 Tbsp. for a large load in a top loading washer. Optional: ½ c. baking soda in wash cycle, 1 c. vinegar in rinse cycle. Use half these amounts for HE washes Get more Sal Suds in our BIO. Photo by @intentionalism

In addition to shopping for only cruelty-free products, here are some other ways that you can help animals who are suffering in experiments:
- If a company tests on animals, raise your voice. Let it know that you won’t buy its products while animals die. #NeverBeSilent
- Inform others. Many people are unaware that countless animals suffer when experimenters drip toxic chemicals into their eyes or rub them onto their bare skin in tests for cosmetics and personal-care and household products.
- Let decisionmakers know that you’re against animal testing and that you support a ban on testing cosmetics on animals.
- Order our FREE cruelty-free shopping guides, and share them with your friends and family members to help them make compassionate choices.
