Clean homes are big business. In fact, the global household cleaning products market is worth more than $247 billion, according to some estimates. But unfortunately, many of the products designed to get our homes sparkling aren’t so clean on the inside—it turns out, they’re not just loaded with harsh chemicals, but also animal ingredients. Yup, there could be animal products in your cleaning cabinet. But don’t worry, there are also plenty of vegan products out there to choose from—most of which you can easily grab during your next trip to Walmart. Here are some of our top picks.

Why aren’t all cleaning products vegan?

We all know that brands often sneak animal ingredients into food products (looking at you, milk powder), but it’s also important to check what’s going into our cleaning products.

Oily caprylic acid, for example, is sometimes used in disinfectants, and while it can be derived from palm or coconut oil, it also comes from mammals. Other ingredients to watch out for include lanolin (which comes from sheep’s wool), beeswax (made by, you guessed it, bees), and tallow (which comes from the fat of cattle and sheep).


If you’re worried about animal testing, unfortunately, this also takes place in the cleaning product industry. Usually, a brand will be open about its animal testing policy, but you can also look for third-party certification from organizations like People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals and Leaping Bunny for extra reassurance. All of the options below are not just vegan, but also cruelty-free.
