What's a more perfect way to test out a green carpet cleaner than on cat vomit?  After my cat threw up on the carpet, I immediately grabbed the Simple Green Naturals Carpet Care bottle.  I hadn't used it before, so I thought this would be a good way to put it to the test.

Well, it worked like a charm.  Cleaned it up, left no stain, and that was that!  AND, it has no scent, which made my husband very happy.   No complaints!

Simple Green Natural Carpet Care is water based and doesn't contain chlorine. It contains some plant-based ingredients, including one derived from palm seed kernels and another derived from chicory root.  They have a full ingredient list on the label, which I think is very important because even many green products don't have that, which always makes me question its greenness!  It also has not been tested on animals.  

It does contain Sodium Lauryl Sulfate (SLS), which some people are wary of and it has been known to cause skin irritations.  I have sensitive skin, though, and I've never had problems with SLS.   Use your judgment on this one.

The packaging is at least 25% post-consumer content, made of recyclable PET plastic, and the label is printed with a soy-based ink. 

I also wanted to mention that this product is from their NATURALS line, not the standard Simple Green product.  In the past, Simple Green was accused of greenwashing, but I think it's important to take note that their Naturals line is not the same as their regular products.  The Natural products has a full ingredient disclosure list, so there are no secrets here.  I haven't used the regular Simple Green, only their Naturals...and so far so good on the Naturals line!


That's my cat.  I'll imagine I'll be using this cleaner quite regularly because of him.
