In this post, I am going to share with you my Grove Collaborative review and show you a haul from the second order I placed. I am a sucker for free gifts with purchase. Grove Collaborative (referral link) is offering a free Mrs. Meyer’s Cleaning set with your first purchase so I jumped at the opportunity. This is a generous offer because they are full-sized products and on top of that, they allow you to choose your own scents.
My initial purchase included the Tub & Tile Cleaner that I used right up. I was so happy with it, that I went to place another order which is what I’m reviewing here. Aside from the free items offered to everyone, I paid for these items with my own money.
Grove Collaborative is a “green” cleaning subscription service that you can modify at any time. The subscription model is similar to Amazon’s Subscribe and Save where you choose the items you want at the frequency you need them.
I’ve placed two orders with this site and have noticed that they also offer other full-size freebies and shipping when you spend over a specified amount.
Anyhow, let’s get on with my Grove Collaborative review.
Grove Collaborative Haul and Review
E-Cloth Kitchen Pack
Amount: one (1) 12.5″x12.5″ Kitchen Cloth and one (1) 20″x16″ Glass & Polishing Cloth
Chemical-free cleaning cloths that they claim is proven to remove 99% of bacteria with just water. E-Cloth claims that their microfiber towels trap dirt and bacteria in the weave of its fibers.
I am not a scientist and cannot prove any claims made by either E-Cloth or Norwex. I bought this to test out against the Norwex cloths which I have a few of. Supposedly, the Norwex cloths are better as far as performance and quality, but I was told that by the person I bought them from. I decided to determine for myself which I like better. One thing to note is that Norwex has silver, which is antibacterial, embedded in its fibers, whereas the E-Cloth website doesn’t say that it has silver.
At the end of the day, I’m still skeptical and will still use cleaning sprays along with these cloths. Both E-Cloths and Norwex are great to use when cleaning because they pick up all the tiny crumbs.
- Microbiome friendly
- Not tested on animals
- Suitable for sensitive skin
- No fragrance, parabens, sulfates or triclosan
Method Heavy Duty Degreaser in Lemongrass Scent
Amount: 28 oz
A naturally derived cleaner meant to clean up stubborn kitchen messes. I bought this to use in my oven and toaster oven and also for the occasional bits that get stuck on my stove surface.
This doesn’t work very well. I used it on my stove and dish soap works just as well, if not better. I won’t be repurchasing this.
- Packaging is refillable, reusable, biodegradable, compostable and made with renewable energy
- No BPA, CFC, gluten, parabens, nuts or triclosan
- Vegan and leaping bunny certified
Seventh Generation Granite & Stone Cleaner in Mandarin Orange Scent
Amount: 18 fl oz
Cleans, shines and restores granite, sealed stone surfaces. Not sure if this was intentional, but it smells like Fruit Loops to me.
I used to use the Take It For Granite cleaner by Better Life for my counters but it’s not as easy to come by. Although there was nothing wrong with that product, I can only find it on their website and I don’t want to pay for shipping. This cleaner by Seventh Generation is available at Grove Collaborative and seems to be a comparable product so I bought it out of convenience. I like it and will repurchase.
- Leaping bunny certified
- Made in the USA
- Made with organic coconut oil
- Nontoxic formula does not produce harsh fumes
Grove Collaborative Tub & Tile Cleaning Concentrate in Lavender & Thyme Scent
Amount: 2 pack concentrate which is equivalent to 2 bottles of cleaner
A very effective tub and shower cleaner that comes in a concentrated package to help eliminate waste. Just add to a bottle with the recommended amount of water and you’re good to go. Can be used on ceramic tile, porcelain, stainless steel, and fiberglass. Not recommended for use on marble or brass.
This product is the reason for my second order. It worked great and made my shower nice and sparkly, just the way I like.
My favorite shower cleaner has been an even 1:1 mixture of Dawn dish detergent and vinegar. That stuff works great, but my whole approach to housekeeping is to make it as simple as can be. The containers of vinegar and Dawn are too big to store in my bathroom cabinet, so I have been searching for something that cleans and shines just as well. I’ve tried several others you would recognize on the shelves at Target, but they never gave me that shine I was looking for.
I tried this cleaner on a whim when I placed my first order with Grove Collaborative and I’m so happy I did. As I mentioned above, I want my housekeeping to be as quick, simple and easy as possible. The small containers are perfect for my limited storage space and I can quickly grab it, pour it with water into the glass spray bottle I got for free, and spritz all over my shower when it’s time to clean.
- Leaping Bunny Certified
- Made in the USA
- No harsh chemicals, colorants or synthetic fragrances
- Scent is derived from 100% natural essential oils
- Easy to use and effective
Method Toilet Cleaner in Spearmint Scent
Amount: 24 oz
I like it this toilet cleaner just fine, but it’s hard for me to associate a mint scent with a bathroom cleaner. It’s kinda odd, but I don’t mind it. Will I repurchase? Only if it’s convenient and a cheaper option, but I definitely won’t go out searching for it.
Mrs. Meyer’s Room Freshener in Geranium
Price: $4.99 (This was free with my purchase)
Amount: 8 fl oz
This is a room freshener spray that comes in a variety of scents. I really like all of the Mrs. Meyer’s scents. This time around I chose geranium.
- Paraben free
- Leaping bunny certified
- Made in the USA
- 94% naturally derived

Grove Collaborative Review
Grove collaborative offers beauty and household products from green brands such as Shea Moisture, Real Simple, Tom’s of Main, Caldrea, Method and many more.
Aside from the Tub & Tile Cleaner and the Floor Cleaner, you can read about in my first haul, I am not ready to commit to a subscription of any of these products. That’s not to say I won’t in the future, it’s just for now I want to purchase cleaning supplies when I need them.
All that to say, I would recommend their subscription service if you want the convenience. You can learn more about how the subscription works and claim your free gift, here.
