Nettoyage du printemps écolo - La Boite à Grains

In spring, 7 million Canadians clean their homes.

This seasonal activity takes on the symbolic value of purification, renewal and reconciliation.

For this reason, we strongly recommend using natural products for our spring cleaning, whatever the room in the house or even the garden to be cleaned.

The growing popularity of natural products is due to their special characteristics: not only are they biodegradable and therefore in no way harmful to the environment, they are also phosphate-free, hypo-allergenic and non-toxic.

Among the ranges that will satisfy all requirements, we can cite all the products Nature Clean, Pure, Biovert and L'écolo.

Don't hesitate to come and visit our stores to buy these different products because La Boite à Grainsit's the Outaouais' largest retailer of organic and biodegradable products since 1980.

Here are a few practical tips:


  • 1 cup white vinegar
  • 5 drops eucalyptus essential oil

Spray on and wipe off with a dry cloth


  • 1/2 cup baking soda
  • 1 cup water
  • 6 drops rosemary essential oil

After cleaning, wipe with a dry cloth. For the freezer, turn it off for 10 minutes to allow the temperature to rise. During this time, keep food on ice.
On that note, good cleaning!

Non-toxic cleaning product

  • 2 cups distilled vinegar
  • 2 cups water
  • 20 to 30 drops essential oil of your choice (optional)

Tip: Reheat in the microwave until almost hot, which will increase cleaning power for larger items. Use only a glass container in the microwave.

Toilet bowl cleaner

  • Sprinkle bowl with baking soda, spray with vinegar and let stand for at least 30 minutes. Then wash the bowl with a toilet brush.

Tip: Leave the ingredients to work for a while, especially if you want to get rid of deep-rooted dark circles.
