Abe's Market Common Good Natural Cleaners Review

The following is an honest review in exchange for products of my choice. This post contains affiliate links.

I'm back again with another product review courtesy of Abe's Market. My shopping spree covered more than just mascara, and I was eager to try their Natural Home Products, so I'm here to share with you the rest of my chosen items: 

I chose a Natural Household Cleaner, Natural Hand Soaps, and Natural Dishwashing Soap.

Daniel got to do the honors with testing out the all-purpose cleaner

The good news: 
It appears to be free of the toxins we're avoiding.
It didn't take much to do the job when it came to cleaning the bathroom sink. 
It was strong enough to conquer some red mold even.

The bad news: 
It didn't, however, work on the bathtub.
It also smells like decomposing leaves and pine needles. Which may be your thing but wasn't Daniel's. 

I give it 3 out of 5 stars.

The hand soap:

The good news: 
It's natural, of course.
 Seems to work well and smells good. The coriander scent is a bit odd but not bad, and the lavender scent is very strong.

The bad news:
Not much besides the price. Not awful (a whole lot less than the mascara I reviewed a few weeks ago), but still more than I wish I had to pay for natural hand soap.

I give it 4 out of 5 stars.

The dish soap:

The good news:
It smells good. And again, it does appear to be free of the main toxics we're trying to avoid.

The bad news:
Its woeful performance. Picture proof:

I used a normal amount of soap and got a couple plates, a couple cups, and just a few utensils done before the suds were all gone, as you can see. I gave it a few more tries and had to use a lot at a time and it still wasn't sufficient. We gave up on it and will have it on hand for when we run out of other brands. I know you can't really compare the performance of a natural soap to Dawn, but ... you really should be able to, shouldn't you? Is it too much to ask?

I give it 2 out of 5. I would give it 1, but you gotta give it another star for being natural.

You knew if I was reviewing it, it wasn't going to be all sunshine everywhere, right? Oh to be able to give a totally positive review. One can dream right? ;) But the quest for natural is not over, and I have nowhere near exhausted the options. :) You never know what you might find at Abe's Market--they have some of everything, all natural, so if you're like me and wanting to remove chemicals and toxins from your life, there are all kinds of options for you at Abe's Market. Just because these weren't perfect, that doesn't mean there aren't all kinds of other awesome things to be found!

Have you tried this brand before? Do you have any natural cleaners or soaps you love?
