Fortunately, there are a lot of vegan all-purpose cleaner options. Here’s a list of ready-to-use spray bottles and concentrates. A lot of these cleaners are actually made by 100% vegan companies, and I’ve noted which ones are vegan and which ones are explicit about their commitment to animals. By the way, using a concentrated cleaner or DIY cleaner is cheaper and uses less plastic.

List of Vegan All-Purpose Cleaners


Sun & Earth Natural All-Purpose Cleaner
Sun & Earth vegan all-purpose cleaner

Sun & Earth’s website says “None of our products are tested on animals. None of our formulas contain animal products.” The scent of this all-purpose cleaner comes from the main ingredient, orange oil. The cleaner itself is biodegradable and does not contain phosphates, triclosan, or any anti-bacterial substances. The cleaner is also available in giant refills so you can refill the spray bottles. This cleaner received the top grade (A) from the Environmental Working Group, meaning “Few/no known or suspected hazards to health or the environment. Good ingredient disclosure.” It is made in the U.S.A.


Puracy Natural Multi-Surface Cleaner Concentrate

Mixed with water according to the instructions, the Puracy Natural Multi-Surface Cleaner Concentrate will net you 1 gallon of cleaning product, saving on plastic when you reuse your spray bottle. The Puracy brand uses only vegan ingredients and does not conduct animal testing. They are PETA and leaping bunny approved. Made in the U.S.A.


Method All-Purpose Natural Cleaning Spray*

The Method brand uses only vegan ingredients and does not conduct any animal testing or commission third party testing. Their website explicitly commits to this. They use alternative testing models and all of their products are Leaping Bunny and Cruelty Free International certified. *Method’s parent company Ecover briefly performed tests on water fleas, but after customer backlash they have doubled down on a no animal testing policy.


Seventh Generation All-Purpose Natural Cleaner*

The Seventh Generation website say “We are proud, that since our company’s founding in 1988, we have never, ever, conducted or commissioned any animal testing of our products or their ingredients.” and “all Seventh Generation products are free of animal products, and are vegan.” Seventh Generation was recently acquired by Unilever which does test on animals. It is currently unclear whether Seventh Generation will be a stand-alone subsidiary allowed to continue business according to its own principles. Either way, profits may benefit a company that tests on animals.


Mrs. Meyer’s Multi-Surface Concentrate*

Dilute ¼ cup of this vegan multi-surface cleaner with 1 gallon warm water to clean sealed, hard surfaces. The Mrs. Meyers website says “Mrs. Meyer’s Clean Day is a certified cruelty-free company for our no animal testing policy. We do not test our products or ingredients on animals, nor are our products made with animal-derived ingredients.” *Mrs. Meyer’s parent company SC Johnson tests on animals. Mrs. Meyer’s is a stand-alone subsidiary which means they can conduct business they way they always have. Either way, profits may benefit a company that tests on animals.

This concentrated formula is truly an all-purpose cleaner and also comes in a 1 gallon size that will last a long time. Put 1 quart water in a spray bottle and then add 1 tablespoon of Sal Suds to make a vegan all-purpose cleaner. For dilution instructions for many more uses including cleaning laundry and dishes, check here. The Dr. Bronner’s website says “All of Dr. Bronner’s products sold in the U.S. and Canada are Certified Vegan, except for our Organic Lip Balms and Organic Body Balms, which contain organic beeswax. All of our products carry the ‘Leaping Bunny’ seal, which means they are certified cruelty-free and there is no animal testing done with them.” This product does contain Sodium Lauryl Sulfate.


Attitude All-Purpose Eco Cleaner

According to the Attitude website: “All of our products are certified vegan – meaning no animal derived ingredients. Ever. We’re proud members of PETA’s Beauty Without Bunnies program.”


BioKleen Spray and Wipe All-Purpose Cleaner

The BioKleen website says “NO WAY! We have never ever tested a single Biokleen product on an animal, nor have we used animal ingredients in any formulation.” Also, they are not affiliated with “Bio-Kleen.” How two companies are allowed to have such similar names is beyond me when I have friends who haven’t been able to trademark their own name because of a vague similarity to some major brand.


BioKleen Concentrated All-Purpose Cleaner

Biokleen vegan all purpose cleaner

According to the BioKleen website “NO WAY! We have never ever tested a single Biokleen product on an animal, nor have we used animal ingredients in any formulation. In fact, our cleaners are specifically created with the littlest and lovingest among us in mind. In fact, Biokleen is a pet-friendly company!”

According to Leaping Bunny, all products are vegan.

Although no mention is made on their website, a customer service rep wrote (11/1/2017): “We do not use any animal ingredients or animal biproducts in any of our products, and never will.” and “We do not test, and have never tested, any of our final products or product ingredients on animals, and we do not subcontract, and have not subcontracted, any animal testing of our products or product ingredients.”


Citra-Solv Natural Cleaner and Degreaser Concentrate


The CitraSolv website says “we do not conduct any type of animal testing, nor do we condone it. Furthermore, we don’t use any animal-based ingredients in any of our products.” CitraSolv products have the PETA Cruelty-Free and Vegan seal of approval.


Allen’s Naturally

Honest Multi-Surface Cleaner 

According to their website, “The Honest Company has signed PETA’s Statement of Assurance, which states that we ‘do not conduct, contract out, or fund studies on animals in the development, manufacturing, testing, or marketing of our products, nor do we intend to do so.'” Their website describes this multi-surface cleaner as a “plant-based cleaner” and explicitly states “Not tested on animals and no animal by-products.”


DIY (Do-it-yourself) All-Purpose Cleaning Spray

1 cup distilled white vinegar (it usually comes at 5% acidity)
1 cup water
10 drops (give or take) of essential oil of your choice.
Examples: lavender, orange.

This formula is great for removing germs but may take a bit of elbow grease for getting rid of dirt. I find the vinegar smell goes away pretty quickly but some people really don’t like that smell and may want to add more oils to mask it or leave a window open if possible. Not recommended for use on marble.
