Autumn Home Checklist: Prioritising Non-Toxic Ingredients and Refillable Packaging for a Sustainable Season

As we find ourselves in the midst of October, with autumn leaves falling, it's a perfect opportunity to embrace the season while keeping your home clean, safe, and eco-friendly. Join us as we explore some essential tips and tricks for mid-autumn cleaning and organising that prioritise the cornerstones of sustainability.

1. Non-Toxic Ingredients for a Healthier Home


Autumn brings along its unique fragrance of crisp leaves and pumpkin spice. Instead of reaching for synthetic air fresheners and scented candles, why not harness the power of nature? Simmer some water with a few drops of natural essential oil blends like cinnamon and clove. To add some citrus aroma, Spray your room and upholstery with Miniml’s Blood Orange Multi-Surface Spray, including a 100% natural essential oil blend. These natural scents are not only safe for your family and pets but also provide a wonderful, seasonal atmosphere.

2. Embrace Sustainable Refillable Packaging


One of the standout features of Miniml is our dedication to a closed-loop system. Take full advantage of this eco-friendly approach by using the refillable packaging options. When you're done with a product, simply return the empty container for free. Miniml will clean and reuse it, eliminating the need for new containers and reducing plastic waste in their supply chain.

3. Declutter and Donate

Before you start your mid-autumn cleaning spree, gather your family for a decluttering session. Go through your clothes, toys, and household items. Anything you no longer need or use can be donated to local charities or thrift shops. It's an excellent way to reduce waste and help those in need.

4. Dust and Vacuum Regularly

Autumn brings more indoor time, so regular dusting and vacuuming are crucial. These practices not only maintain a clean living space but also improve indoor air quality. For an allergy-prone household, consider switching to a water vacuum cleaner, such as Kärcher. Water filter vacuums not only effectively remove dust and pet hair, but also help you avoid spreading the particles back into the air when opening the filter bag. This powerful device uses water as a filter system, settling all dust and dirt in a container and keeping your environment clean.

6. DIY Autumn Decor


Get creative with your autumn decor! Instead of buying new decorations every year, make your own. Gather fallen leaves, pinecones, and acorns from your garden to craft beautiful centrepieces or wreaths. It's a fantastic way to embrace the season while reducing waste.

7. Eco-friendly Garden Cleanup

Don't overlook your outdoor space. Raking leaves and tidying up the garden are essential mid-autumn tasks. Composting leaves and garden waste is an eco-friendly way to reduce waste and enrich your garden soil naturally.

8. Share Your Sustainable Journey

Finally, inspire others by sharing your eco-friendly autumn cleaning and organising tips with friends and family. Encourage them to prioritise non-toxic ingredients and refillable products in their routines. Together, we can make a more significant impact on the environment and create a greener, healthier future. 🍂🍁
