Avoiding harsh chemicals in your home cleaning products is a great way to prioritise your health and the environment. Our Probiotic Homecare Collection is a safer, more effective, and eco-friendly alternative to traditional disinfectants. They use the power of good bacteria to out-compete the harmful bacteria around your home, in a similar way to how our bodies work. Improving the balance and microbiome of your home, providing a better solution for you, your home and the planet.

What are Probiotic Cleaners?

Probiotics are live microorganisms that provide health benefits when consumed or applied to the body or surfaces. While most commonly associated with gut health and digestion, probiotics are now gaining popularity in the realm of cleaning products. Probiotic cleaning products contain a carefully selected blend of beneficial bacteria that help break down dirt, and grime, and outcompete harmful pathogens, resulting in a clean and healthier home environment.

Not all probiotic cleaners a created equal, the effectiveness of the bacteria used in the cleaner and the other ingredients added to the formula, all affect how effectively the products clean and the implications to the environment and your health.

The Benefits of Probiotic Cleaning with nookary

Safer for You and Your Home

One of the biggest advantages of our probiotic cleaners is that it's safer for you, your family, and your pets. Traditional cleaning products often contain toxic chemicals that can cause respiratory issues, skin irritation, and other health problems. In contrast, the ingredients in our probiotic cleaning products are carefully managed so that they require zero hazardous warnings once diluted. Making them ideal for people with sensitivities or allergies.

Eco-friendly by Design

The bacteria in Probiotic cleaners are fermented, rather than produced as part of an intensive chemical process. This fermentation is a much gentler process on the environment and doesn’t have any harmful by-products polluting waterways and causing harm to wildlife.

Reduced Plastic Waste

Our cleaning refills are designed to reduce your plastic waste. Our amber glass Forever Bottles are designed to be used … well .. forever, and our refill pouches are designed to be sent back to us to be reused or recycled with our recycling partner.

Restores Balance

Probiotic cleaning helps promote a more natural balance of bacteria in your home. While it may sound counterintuitive, not all bacteria are bad. Our homes are filled with a diverse range of bacteria, both good and bad. Traditional cleaning products indiscriminately kill both types of bacteria, leaving a void that can be filled by harmful pathogens. Probiotic cleaning, on the other hand, introduces beneficial bacteria that compete with harmful bacteria, helping to restore a healthy microbial balance in your home.

Long-lasting Results

Traditional cleaning products are effective at killing germs on a surface for minutes after spraying, after that germs are free to start spreading again. On the other hand, probiotic cleaners offer long-lasting results, being effective for hours, even days after you’ve finished cleaning. The beneficial bacteria in probiotic cleaning products continue to work breaking down dirt and grime as well as outcompeting with harmful bacteria, while there is something there for them to work against. This ongoing cleaning action helps to maintain a clean and healthier home environment for longer and could even mean you need to clean less!


Our Probiotic cleaning products are designed to be versatile, reducing your need to fill the cupboard under your kitchen sink with plastic bottles. Our Probiotic All-Purpose Cleaner really is all-purpose and is effective across all of your hard (water-safe) surfaces, from kitchen countertops, bathroom, floors and even your windows and mirrors. Our Probiotic Carpet & Upholstery Cleaner is effective across your carpets, sofas, carpets and all of your soft furnishings, as a stain treatment or part of your daily cleaning routine.

Reduces the Use of Harsh Chemicals

By switching to probiotic cleaning, you can reduce your dependence on harsh chemicals commonly found in traditional cleaning products. This not only benefits your health and the environment but also helps promote a more sustainable lifestyle by reducing chemical waste and pollution.

Supports a Healthy Microbiome

Just like our gut, our homes also have a microbiome, which refers to the community of microorganisms that live in a particular environment. Probiotic cleaning promotes a healthy home microbiome by introducing beneficial bacteria that can outcompete harmful bacteria. This can help reduce the presence of allergens, odours, and other unwanted microbes, creating a healthier living environment for you and your family.
