1. Super Amazing Kitchen Cloths

We’ve long been fans of Trader Joe’s Super Amazing Kitchen Cloths—and for good reason. Not only can these reusable cloths absorb up to ten times their weight in liquid, they’re durable enough to last for years. Did we mention they’re only $3.99 for a two-pack?

2. Liquid Laundry Detergent

Beloved for its light lavender-y scent, Traders Joe’s Liquid Laundry Detergent is made with soy-based softeners and lavender oil, but still formulated for high efficiency (HE).

3. Fruit and Vegetable Wash

Specially formulated to remove waxes, pesticides, and chemicals, Trader Joe’s Fruit and Vegetable Wash is made with all-natural ingredients such as coconut oil and grapefruit seed. Score a 16-ounce bottle for $4 at your local T.J.’s and it’ll last you at least a year.

4. Next to Godliness Automatic Dishwasher Detergent

Trader Joe’s dishwasher pods are about as good as it gets in the dishwashing machine world. Free of harsh fragrances and dyes, these ultra concentrated packs offer a deep clean without any of the nasty chemicals.

5. Pop Up Sponges Made From Natural Vegetable Cellulose

Made from all-natural vegetable cellulose, Trader Joe’s Pop Up Sponges presently hold a 4.5 star rating on Amazon. A nod to traditional sea sponges, these textured wonders are great for scrubbing and come in packs of twelve.

6. Next to Godliness Multiple Purpose Cedar Wood & Sage Cleaner with Essential Oils

All-natural and good on everything from glass to oven hoods, Trader Joe’s multi-purpose cleaner may very well be one of the best cleaning products the store has to offer. Packed with essential oils including cedar wood and sage, this fragrant spray can do some serious housework but smells like a day at the park.

7. Liquid Dish Soap

Light and citrusy, Trader Joe’s Liquid Dish Soap is hypoallergenic, but can cut through tough grease in seconds. Made with an all-natural plant-based formula, in true Trader Joe’s form this powerful dish soap still manages to be eco-friendly.
