How it Works

Purchase your Eternity Bottles once, set up your refill deliveries and then simply add water!

  1. Empty a single sachet refill into your refillable Eternity bottle

  2. Fill with tap water slowly (to avoid excess foaming)

  3. Start cleaning within minutes

Each plastic-free, non-toxic refill makes a full-sized 500ml bottle of cleaning solution.

With each Starter Pack purchased, Spruce are able to collect and remove ocean-bound plastic waste equal to twenty-five plastic bottles.

The company are partnered with Plastic Bank which means they are able to support plastic waste collection in high poverty coastal communities.

My Experience

Spruce were kind enough to send me their Starter Kit Duo to test out and review.

My first thoughts about the cleaners was 'wow' the scent alone is far more pleasant than other harsh cleaners and almost smells like a spa with the eucalyptus and geranium scents.

The sprays cleaning performance was top notch too and left my countertops and tiles clean and streak free.

Set up was super easy, simply pop the sachets into the Eternity Bottles and then add water.

If you're looking for more eco conscious home cleaners I'd highly recommend trying out Spruce!
