Domestic Science: Common Good Cleaning Products

Founded by Australian-born Sacha Dunn, a former prop stylist, the mission of Brooklyn-based Common Good is simple: "We believe in safe, green, hard-working household cleaners and soaps in bottles you can refill." Common Good products (which include dishwashing liquid, all-purpose spray cleaner, laundry detergent, and more) are largely plant-based and are free of fragrance, dyes, and synthetic perfumes. Best of all, if you live in New York, you can bring your own bottle to one of several locations in Manhattan and Brooklyn (go to Common Good for locations) for reasonably priced refills. Online, select products are available at Terrain.
