There are a lot of gentle vegan cleaners on the market, but finding a vegan scouring powder for tougher jobs is a little trickier. Fortunately, there are actually a few options from vegan brands. Scouring powders, after all, rely more on their grit and your elbow grease than on harsh chemicals for removing stains. Try a vegan scouring powder with an eco-friendly scouring pad.
