Do you want to maximise your chemical-free cleaning experience? Read this post to find out the things you should do (and the things you shouldn't) when cleaning chemical-free
Whether you’re new to cleaning with fibre technology or you’re a seasoned ENJO user, there’s no denying cleaning without chemicals is different and it can take a little getting used to.
As a zero-waste, reusable cleaning range, we offer the opposite to single-use or disposable cleaning supplies.
By choosing to clean with ENJO you’ll be using the same ENJO cleaning products for 3 years.
Choosing reusable cleaning products to clean your home also means cleaning with and caring for your cleaning products in a slightly different way.
Don't make the cleaning mistake of not using your ENJO products properly.
Here are our top ‘dos and don’ts’ for cleaning with and caring for your ENJO products.
When cleaning with ENJO don’t…
Don't use ENJO fibres on hot surfaces
It can be tempting to clean-up that stovetop spill straight away but wait, ENJO Fibres are designed to be used with cool water on a cool surface.
Hot surfaces can damage the unique wedge-shaped fibres and weave, making your fibres less effective.
Don't wet your dust fibres
Finding a healthy way to dust is the dream, especially for those with asthma and allergies.
ENJO’s dust fibres are great for removing dust for improved indoor air quality, but only when the fibres are dry. As soon as you apply water to dust, it turns to dirt and makes your job that much harder, so keep your ENJO dust fibres dry for optimal dust-busting results.
Don't tumble dry your fibres
Like applying your ENJO products to a hot surface, tumble drying could damage your ENJO fibres.
Let them air dry instead, for a longer-lasting, more effective product.
Don't wash your fibres with fabric softener
To make your sheets and clothes super soft and wrinkle-free, fabric softener coats the fibres with their softening properties.
Coating your ENJO Fibres will make them less effective at doing their number one job - lifting and trapping dirt.
Don't forget there's a money-back guarantee
Maybe you’ve been thinking about making the switch to chemical-free cleaning but doubts around ENJO’s effectiveness have stopped you in your tracks?
ENJO offers a 30-day money-back guarantee, and also afterpay and zip pay options so you can clean now and pay later.
Don't throw away your old fibres
When we say zero waste, we mean zero waste.
ENJO don’t want to see a single fibre they produce end up in a landfill, which is why we encourage customers to send their ENJO Fibres back to ENJO HQ.
Old fibres are collected and then upcycled into home insulation and car seats, for a truly zero-waste product.

When cleaning with ENJO do...
Do use cool water
The cool water acts as the solvent, helping loosen dirt and bacteria from the surface and allowing ENJO’s fibre technology to trap and lift debris from the surface.
Keeping water cool also helps save energy and keep your fibres in tip-top condition.
Do wash new ENJO products before first use
Your ENJO products will arrive in their waste-free packaging ready to be popped straight into the wash.
After they have air-dried, they are ready for their first chemical-free clean in your home.
Do use enough water
We all know water is a precious resource, and finding ways to save water at home is important.
Switching to ENJO means you’ll automatically be using less water as you clean (no buckets and no need to rinse away chemical residue), which is great.
Simply remember to add more water if you’re cleaning a particularly tough stain.
Do wet, wipe and dry
Cleaning with ENJO is about completing a very simple, tried and tested process - wet, wipe, dry.
The water is the solvent, the unique patented fibres trap the dirt, and the super-absorbent microfibre dries the surface.
A dry surface is important as it makes that surface hard for bacteria and mould to grow on, thus, keeping your surfaces cleaner for longer.
Do wash in the ENJO Laundry Bag at 40-60°C
Once you have your ENJO cleaning products you’ll be cleaning with them for 3 years, which means washing your ENJO products.
We recommend washing your products in the ENJO Laundry Bag provided with your order, this not only helps protect the fibres, but also any other garments in your load.
Wash between 40-60°C.
Do ask questions about the products
Even if you purchased your ENJO products ages ago, we want to make sure you love using them and cleaning chemical free!
Our customer care team and ENJO Business owners are ready to answer your questions and demonstrate how to use your products.
Simply get in touch.
Do become ENJOpure
ENJOpure is all about celebrating and rewarding ENJO customers who have made the change to an earth-loving, chemical-free way to clean.
Do hold a Demo
We always get the question, does ENJO really work?
If you’re interested in seeing ENJO in action, in saving money and getting ENJO products for free*, holding an ENJO demo is the way to go.
Have you held an ENJO Demo? Tell us about your experience in the comments.
