Thanks to Vermont Soapworks, a company that has been creating innovative natural and organic soap products since 1992, cleaning is now safer for the home and the environment. Liquid Sunshine Non Toxic Cleaner (NTC) is a USDA Certified Organic non-toxic alternative to conventional chemical cleaner that meets or exceeds all USDA organic food standards.
“We were seeking to create a versatile, all purpose cleaning product for laundry, dishes, kitchen appliances, bathrooms, carpets, stains, woodwork, floors, camping and literally any water-safe surface. Most importantly, it had to be safe and effective to use on the hands and body, and even as a shampoo for people with oily hair,” said Larry Plesent, CEO of Vermont Soap.
Liquid Sunshine is made from renewable and organic vegetable and botanical ingredients including saponified (turned into natural soap) organic coconut, olive and jojoba oils, essential oils, organic aloe vera and rosemary extract. It is extraordinarily mild, hypoallergenic, 100% natural and good for your skin and our earth. Because Liquid Sunshine is made with natural citrus essential oils, it has a brisk and cheerful aromatherapy scent.

It is free of artificial colors, fragrances and preservatives and contains no Sodium Lauryl Sulfate or other detergents, alcohols or d-limonene. Vermont Soap does not test on animals. Liquid Sunshine is powerful and concentrated, yet safe and even mild enough for direct use on pets and adult and children's skin.

Green Cleaning - Liquid Sunshine usage tips
For general cleaning Liquid Sunshine works best in warm to hot water. It can be used on the stovetop, refrigerator and any other water-safe surface. Scrub with sponge saturated in Liquid Sunshine and rinse and dry. It can also be used to replace fabric softener, whiteners, stain removers and dryer sheets for added savings. Below are some additional tips for usage:
Floors: Add 3 oz. of Liquid Sunshine to mop water. Clean as usual and allow to dry.
Laundry: Use about 1/3 cup per load - a little more for hard water. Liquid Sunshine may be neutralized by detergent residues in the machine so use enough to get the barest start of foam on top. You may have to use a little extra the first time. Always mix into warm water before adding the clothes. Softens clothes with natural aloe and also has a mild whitening effect. It is great for silks and fine fabrics, wool and suede (may darken).
Stain Removal: Safe and effective. Wet surface and apply full strength. Work into the material from several directions and let sit a moment. Rinse and dry.
Woodwork, Floors and Walls: Dilute 1/4 cup per 1 gallon of hot water. Clean, rinse and let dry.
Bathrooms: Use full strength on sponge and rinse. Great for all porcelain and tile surfaces.
Vehicles: Saturate sponge with Liquid Sunshine. Work over vehicle in sections, wetting first, applying Liquid Sunshine and then rinsing. Always wash vehicles out of direct sunlight.
Carpets: Replaces detergent concentrates. Works well in all carpet cleaning machines and on stains.
General Cleaning: Stovetop, refrigerator, etc. Wet surface. Scrub with sponge saturated in Liquid Sunshine. Rinse and dry. Ideal for all watersafe surfaces.
