For a while, I resisted Blueland as aesthetic hype: One of those chicly packaged launches that got influencers (and aspiring influencers) everywhere raving about how wonderful they are, largely because the line of eco-friendly cleaning products looked great on the ‘gram. But after a while, the buzz got to be too loud to ignore, so I decided to test out some of its best-known products, which conveniently come packaged in its Everyday Clean Collection.
The $70 kit includes three Tritan (aka BPA-free plastic) spray bottles, along with tablets to mix with water to create a multi-purpose cleaner, bathroom cleaner and glass and mirror cleaner; as well as a powder-based dish soap, dishwasher tablets and foaming hand soap tablet (and the containers for each). The idea is that the tablet refills take up less space in your home, and you’ll go through fewer single-use plastic containers—30, by the brand’s estimation—each year. I liked the concept and the sleek branding, but I wasn’t sure how well they’d clean. Or if I’d keep up with mixing my own sprays before scrubbing my shower tiles.
