Root is known for making cruelty-free, vegan, and natural makeup and skincare. When they added cleaning products into their inventory, I couldn’t wait to try them. Currently, the cruelty-free cleaning products from Root are the Pretty Everything Soap and the Pretty Surface Cleaner. Between these two different cleaners are both all-purpose cleansers that can be used in a variety of ways around your home.
Root sent me the Pretty Surface Cleaner to try when it first came out and I purchased their Pretty Everything Soap. I also picked up their foaming soap dispensers as well. Since I know a lot of you are looking for new cruelty-free cleaning products, I wanted to share my thoughts on the two that are currently available from Root.
The Root Pretty Everything Soap is a multi-purpose soap that you can use all over your home. You can purchase both full and sample size bottles. While Root does sell the foaming soap dispensers that are great for hand soap, this soap can also be used for dishes, laundry, carpets, floors, and even as a body wash and shampoo. It comes in a Lavender Mint scent that’s very refreshing. I love that it’s not too strong and not artificial either. Because it’s such a natural soap, I have no issues using it all over my home for a variety of needs.
On the product page Root lists measurements and dilution rates for using this soap all over your home. We have been using it as our regular hand soap, but I have also used it to clean the bathtub, remove spilled coffee from the carpet (whoops!), to clean surfaces, and as dish soap, and even to wash my makeup brushes. In all cases, I felt that it worked really well. It feels very gentle but is also very effective.

The Root Pretty Surface Cleaner is available in a refillable spray bottle, but you can also buy the concentrate for refills and additional empty spray bottles. This is a multi-purpose cleanser meant for water-safe surfaces. I’ve used it on my countertops, bathtub, desk, vanity, stove, sink, and mirrors. In all cases, it cleaned really well. Any dirt and grime wiped right off easily. I will definitely be buying the concentrate refills in the future and will continue to use this around my home.
When using a lot of spray cleaners in the past, I’ve always felt like I needed to open my windows afterward to get rid of the chemical smell left behind. Because the scent and cleaning power are natural and mostly from essential oils, you don’t need to worry about the scent. It has a really lovely scent that I actually enjoy. It’s a bit of an herbal citrus scent, but it leaves everything just smelling fresh. There’s no lingering smell of chemicals or artificial fragrances in the air.

Great review. Love Root products! I was happy when they branched out into cleaning products as well. I have yet to try them, but they seem amazing.
