We talk about mainstream conventional food products that are accidentally vegan a lot around here. But, does anyone know of any mainstream conventional (Read: CHEAP! and liable to be found in a non-specialty store) household cleaning or personal grooming products that are accidentally humane? (No animal ingredients, no animal testing) Thanks!

Paul Mitchel - not sure if this qualifies as it typically must be purchased in a beauty store, but it might

Bon Ami

It's seriously the first thing I grab to clean anything around the house. I especially like it to clean the porcelain sink in my kitchen, which is pretty much the bane of my existence.

biokleen and ecos are two others that are cf and don't use animal ingredients.

ecos is usually a good deal - the laundry detergent is about half the price of tide, for example.

Thank you for the Bon Ami recommendation, Jessi! I'll add it to my list.
Aiee - I was looking for items that I could purchase without the trip into the health food store. I'm a total cheapskate, and just absolutely cannot afford the organic everything route. I was hoping to compile a list of items that could potentially be found in a dollar store or regular market (truth be told, I don't even shop at a those, I just can't afford to.) But thank you for the recommendations, nonetheless.

St. Ives participates in third party testing, they get away with the 'not tested on animals' labeling on their products because they don't test their finished products.

We kind of already have this thread, complete with a link to a handy list: viewtopic.php?f=33&t=28433

You can make a lot of environmentally friendly and likely humane cleaning products yourself with things you likely already have under your sink. Just type "environmentally friendly _____ cleaner" or "green _____ cleaner". E-how has tons of recipes.

Even beyond third party animal testing, St Ives were bought by Unilever a year or two back. Or rather their parent company Alberto-Culver was sold to Unilever, which is why I had to stop buying cheap VO5 conditioner to use as shaving cream and had to switch to the much harder to find in stores White Rain.
