The Ultimate Guide to Cruelty-Free Cleaning Products

The Ultimate Guide to Cruelty-Free Cleaning Products

Looking for cruelty-free cleaning products? This guide has you covered! Logical Harmony helps make cruelty-free easy!

So many people ask for help when it comes to cruelty-free cleaning products. When it comes to keeping your home clean, a lot of us grow up with a lot of brand loyalty. We grow up seeing our parents buy specific brands and once we’re out on our own, most people continue to buy those same brands. A lot of people also don’t realize that cleaning products are often tested on animals. It can be one of the last cruelty-free swaps people make.

Thankfully, it’s now easier than ever to find cruelty-free cleaning options. No matter what you’re looking to replace there are easy swaps. So whether that’s dishwasher soap, a good all-purpose cleaner, laundry soap, specialty cleaners, glass cleaner, or other options, this list has you covered.

Berkey Water Filters – My Experience with the Big Berkey

Berkey Water Filters - My Experience with the Big Berkey

I got my Berkey Water Filter in September and I get a lot of questions about it. I wanted to answer some of the most common ones I get here on the blog so that I could elaborate a bit more. Berkey Filters sent me the Big Berkey and its stand and it has been absolutely amazing to have.

I mentioned this on Instagram when I first talked about our Berkey, but the water here in Salt Lake City is… Well… Gross. Straight from the tap, a glass of water literally smells like a swimming pool. It leaves a white residue on things from the minerals in it. It’s not something I wanted to be drinking, nor did I want our cats drinking it either. And it’s not just specific to our area or our home. We’ve been out at restaurants and the glasses of water smell so strongly of chlorine and other chemicals that I have a hard time drinking the water.

We had a pitcher filter and it was running through filters every 2 weeks. Before moving to Salt Lake City, we were able to go much longer before it needed to be changed. I didn’t like the waste factor of it, but it seemed to work well enough while we looked for another option. Once we moved to Salt Lake City and the filters didn’t last long.

It was too wasteful to be going through filters them so quickly. Using the pitcher filter system wasn’t cost-effective. It was also very clear to me that our water needed something a bit more heavy-duty.

Something needed to change and I started looking at other options. I had heard about Berkey Filters before and started to really research them. I am so thankful that I was able to work with them to add a Big Berkey to our home.

My Small Dining Room Makeover & Tour with Article!

My Small Dining Room Makeover & Tour with Article!

Today I’m sharing my small dining room makeover with you! As previously mentioned here on Logical Harmony, I plan to keep adding more bits of lifestyle content. I had shared my living room with you and sharing my dining room seemed like a great fit too. I’m so excited to be partnering with Article on this blog post – thank you for sponsoring it, Article!

After working with Article on my living room, it felt like such a natural fit when they wanted to work together again on my dining room. The two rooms share a lot in common – they are small spaces and I wanted them to be functional despite the small size. They are also directly across from each other, so I really wanted to create a space that flowed well together.

I’m really excited to share my dining room tour with you! I’m just so happy with how it turned out. Similar to the living room, I started with a blank slate. After we moved to Utah I didn’t want to bring things into our home unless they were something I loved. This meant lots of meals at the coffee table, but I was okay with that compromise until I found a way to make the dining room an area I loved.
