nookary, the specialist online retailer of probiotic home cleaning products that care for your home and the environment, now offers a full range of refillable cleaning products for all your hard surfaces, carpets and fabrics – plus an air freshener formula too. The probiotic range is as high-performing as it’s eco-friendly – and also smells amazing. The non-toxic cleaners not only create a safer environment in your home for you, your family and your pets, but they also – thanks to the active bacteria in the probiotic formula – continue to clean your home long after you’ve stopped spraying.
Evocatively scented with natural essential oils, the probiotic cleaners come in beautifully designed, amber-coloured refillable, recyclable glass spray bottles that any eco-aware, style-conscious homeowner will be proud of.
Developed and made in the UK, the unique, VOC-free, non-toxic probiotic formula uses specially selected live Bacillus strains of bacteria to safely and effectively clean every type of surface in the home. The All-Purpose Probiotic Cleaner cleans not just bathrooms and kitchens –it’s great for tackling limescale – but hard floors and even mirrors and windows. The Probiotic Carpet & Upholstery Cleaner will keep carpets, upholstery and fabrics fresh with a long-lasting clean and the Probiotic Air Freshener cleanses the air in your home while working behind the scenes to break down and remove bad odours for good.
Clean Less, Live More!
The good news is that nookary’s hard-working bacteria carry on cleaning long after you’ve stopped wiping, helping to keep surfaces, carpets and fabrics hygienic and germ-free in between cleans, giving you more time to do literally anything else!
Even better, switching to the nookary refillable eco-friendly cleaner range is not an expensive choice. Once diluted, a bottle of the All-Purpose Probiotic Cleaner lasts for two weeks on average. Each refill pouch contains enough concentrated probiotic formula to provide around 10 bottles’ worth of diluted cleaning solution; enough to see the average home through approximately 20 weeks of cleaning. This works out really cost-effectively at £1.80 per diluted bottle.
Not only that, the All-Purpose Cleaner is your surface, window and glass cleaner all in one, so it not only saves you from having to buy all three but is much handier and quicker to use around the house – and gives you more space in your store cupboard.
“nookary aims to help the homeowner be proud of the choices they’ve made,” says Jacqueline Smith, founder and owner of nookary.com. “We offer environmentally-friendly, natural, planet-friendly products that really do work. Once they start using them, consumers will see that our reasonably priced, beautifully practical, refillable products make it easy to achieve effective cleaning performance without compromising ecological ideals.”
The full Probiotic cleaning range comprises three products, all with fragrance options of Sicilian Lemon (Lemon & Bergamot), Tranquil Moments (Peppermint & Eucalyptus) and English Garden (Honeysuckle & Pear); and Beautifully Bare.

nookary Probiotic Air Freshener
This delicious-smelling Probiotic Air Freshener cleanses the air in your home and then works behind the scenes to break down and remove bad odours for good. Great for whenever you want to give your home a little uplift (just before guests arrive for example), to create a fresh and welcoming space you can feel proud of.
It works by using an odour counteractant within the product that binds to any existing odour molecules, preventing them from being detected by the nose. The probiotics in the product then degrade the organic matter causing the smell.

Effective, non-abrasive cleaning that’s good for you, your home and kind to the planet
Probiotic expert and leading UK biochemist Dr Emma Saunders says “Instead of using harsh, toxic chemicals that can be abrasive and can themselves release unwanted toxins to the air, probiotic formulas work with nature using beneficial bacteria to cleanse surfaces of unpleasant bacteria by using living, beneficial micro-organisms (microbes) which need energy to thrive and multiply. And their energy comes from consuming the unwanted bacteria from the surfaces.
“By releasing specific enzymes according to the type of bacteria that is present, the probiotic microbes multiply to overwhelm the harmful bacteria leaving an inhospitable environment that they cannot survive in, reducing odours, as well as the risk of transferring bacteria from surfaces to the mouth.
“In fact, research in clinical dental and hospital settings has demonstrated that probiotic cleaning is better than using chemical disinfectants which usually eliminate surface pathogens immediately but are ineffective in preventing recontamination and pathogen regrowth occurring within a few hours after cleaning.”(1),(2)
nookary’s Jacqueline Smith adds: “Other biological products often contain enzymes that are sensitive to temperature and pH and have a very limited, short-term effect on your surfaces, or contain multiple strains of non-targeted bacteria that compete against each other instead of waging war on surface bacteria. Our nookary Probiotic Cleaning range contains an effective blend of Bacillus organisms, all of which have been selected for their ability to quickly degrade organic materials such as grease, fats, proteins, starch and oils that build up on surfaces over time.
“Not only that, but nookary’s probiotic cleaners also match a specific Bacillus strain to target and breakdown individual organic compounds that ensures maximum efficacy. The Bacillus strains were also screened for compatibility to ensure they do not compete against each other but instead individually thrive as they work to eradicate germs and eliminate odours.”
