Our New Defender Household Cleaners Give You a Powerful Clean

Defender Household Cleaners

Plant Therapy has been working long and hard formulating, testing, and perfecting our new Defender Household Cleaners! The Defender Multi-Surface Cleaner and Glass Cleaner Concentrates combine the power of essential oils (yes, that Defender) with natural ingredients to cut through grease, grime, and dirt. Not only do our cleaners use natural, plant-powered ingredients, but they also help cut down on the use of single-use plastics making for a more sustainable product. You can cut out the harsh chemicals, get a wonderfully clean home, and be kind to the planet all at the same time.  Let’s meet the newest natural addition to your cleaning routine.

Defender Multi Surface Cleaner

Defender Multi-Surface Cleaner

Meet the Defender Multi-Surface Cleaner! It combines the power of plants and essential oils for an effective cleaner that cuts through grease and grime without any harsh chemicals. The naturally-derived, plant-based ingredients clean tough messes on most sealed surfaces like countertops, stovetops, tile, or the inside of your microwave. To get started, combine 4 Tbsp (8 Tbsp for tougher messes) of concentrate in the coordinating 16 oz glass bottle. Then fill the rest of the bottle with water. All that’s left to do is spray and wipe! And if you’re not sure about your surface, we recommend testing on an inconspicuous spot first.

Curious how these natural cleaners measure up? Spoiler alert: they’re awesome. But don’t just take our word for it! You can check out these independent third-party results.

Defender Glass Cleaner

Defender Glass Cleaner

What’s a surface cleaner without a glass cleaner to go with it?! The Defender Glass Cleaner uses the power of plants and essential oils for an effective cleaner that removes fingerprints and smudges without any harsh chemicals. The naturally-derived, plant-based ingredients effortlessly clean your windows and mirrors leaving a streak-free surface. Get the most out of your cleaner by using a microfiber cloth.

To keep things easy, use an 8:1 concentration for the glass cleaner. Add 4 Tbsp to the glass bottle, fill the rest with water, and get ready for fabulously clean windows and mirrors. Don’t forget to check out the independent third party test results for the glass cleaner as well.

Ways to start recycling today

Our Commitment to Sustainably

Caring for the planet will always be a priority for us. In addition to cutting out harsh chemicals, the Defender Household Cleaner concentrate formula is completely biodegradable. Instead of a single-use bottle that will be thrown out after it’s empty, the glass bottle can be used again and again! Plus the bottle and color-coordinating silicone sleeve are both dishwashers safe.

While the concentrate bottle is plastic, it is equivalent to 64 ounces of cleaner or four full-size plastic bottles! Don’t forget to recycle the concentrate bottle according to your local guidelines.

Shelf Life

Once you mix your concentrate up, it will be good for six months. The shelf life of the concentrates is two years from the manufacturing date.  To find the manufacturing date, look at the number printed near the bottom of your concentrate bottle. The last four digits indicate the Julian date. The first number in those digits represents the year. For example, if it’s a 0, the year is 2020. The next three digits indicate the day of the year that the product was manufactured.  For example,  001 means it was manufactured on January 1st and 366 means it was manufactured on December 31st.


Meet the Ingredients

We wouldn’t leave without telling you about all the ingredients in our new Defender Household Cleaners! You might have already guessed that it includes our Defender Essential Oil Blend (and you’d be right!). The full ingredient list, along with an explanation of what each ingredient does, and its CAS Number can be found in these printable PDFs:

The CAS, or Chemical Abstracts Service, documents every identifiable substance described in open scientific literature. This helps if the same chemical substance (whether it’s organic, inorganic, mineral, or alloy) goes by more than one name. You can use these numbers to further research the ingredients in our cleaners.

    1. It should be safe on a quartz countertop as long as it’s sealed. We recommend testing on an inconspicuous spot first, just to be sure.

  1. As far as storage of both of these products, do you store the in the refrigerator after mixing or can be stored at room temperature?

  2. I’m very excited to try this out! Switching to safe products with fewer chemicals has been one of my favorite uses for EOs.

    1. We sold out of the household cleaner fairly quickly. But check back soon! We should be restocking later this week.

  3. I love the glass cleaner. It smells wonderful and works great. I can’t wait until the all-purpose cleaner is back in stock.

  4. I see that these are considered pet safe. Is that just after everything is dry or what? I have cats, a parrot, a newborn human, and am breastfeeding. Safe for all of that? Any precautions I should take? Thank you!

    1. You should treat this as you would any household cleaner. Make sure your pets don’t lick or ingest it while it’s wet and keep your pets off any surface while you’re cleaning.

  5. I’m very impressed with the glass bottle, with the silicone buffer on the bottom – for extra protection against breakage.

  6. I wanna try these….Covid-19 is responsible for me losing my job. But I will order when I get a new one for sure!!

  7. Great information. Love the explanation of the Julian date system and knowing I have 6 months to use the product after mixing. Will try these products in the future. Thank you once again Plant Therapy. Your products are top-of-the-line!

    1. Defender has a bright, sweet, fruity aroma. It’s nice and subtle in our cleaners. If you want to learn more about the blend, go here.

  8. Oh my! I am lovin’ the new cleaners, glad i ordered both of them and i definitely love the bottles and glad i bought 2 extra bottles. Cant wait to try the holiday scents as they come available.

  9. These sound great! It says the cleaners, once mixed with water, are good for 6 months. That’s awesome but I’m sure you must use a bottle a month if you use it regulary…

  10. Glad to know that these are pet safe. All my pets have been raised around essential oils, but it’s good to see that Plant Therapy is willing to put that these are pet friendly out there !

  11. I’d like to try these cleaners. Does anyone know if either cleaner will work on stainless steel appliances?

    1. I have personally used the multi-surface cleaner on stainless steel and it works great. The glass cleaner works equally as good.

  12. I am soooo excited for these cleaners! I’ve been wanting an alternative to [that MLM cleaner that I refused to buy] for forever!! So glad to finally have it! I even tried to DIY some but just wasn’t thrilled with the results. So so glad to have this!

  13. I may have missed this but… What is the shelf life of the concentrate? Will it be affected by leaving it in the plastic container? Would it be better to use tap water or distilled water?

    1. The shelf life of the concentrate is two years from the manufacture date, and that wouldn’t be affected by the plastic bottle. Once it’s mixed with water, the mixture is good for six months. You can use whatever water is easier, but distilled water may be slightly better.

    1. No, we don’t recommend adding anything to our Defender household cleaners as they have been carefully formulated and tested. But you can follow up our Defender cleaners with bleach or hydrogen peroxide to disinfect your surfaces.

  14. I purchased the multipurpose cleaner concentrate kit and can’t wait to try it! I love that it has good quality ingredients !

    1. You can purchase the concentrates individually or with the glass spray bottle (in orange or blue). The choice is yours!

  15. These sound great! It says the cleaners, once mixed with water, are good for 6 months. Is that because of the preservatives in the concentration? Do the preservatives account for the amount of water used per the recipes?

    1. Hi Lily, these cleaners are formulated to clean messes, dirt, and grime. They are not disinfectants or sanitizers.

  16. Are the cleaners safe on granite counters?
    Can it be used on toilet SEATS, or will it disintegrate coating the seats?
    Thank you! Looking forward to trying them in our new home after we move in next Tuesday!

    1. Hi Kathy, is safe to use on most sealed surfaces. If using on unsealed granite or any other surface you’re not sure about, we recommend testing on a small, inconspicuous patch first.

    1. Hi Stephanie, this product is formulated to clean dirt, grime, and other messes. It is not a disinfectant or sanitizer.

    1. Yes, you can combine the cleaner (after the concentrate has been mixed with water) with some paper towels in a wipes container.

    1. Hi Carrie, this product is formulated to clean dirt, grime, and other messes. It is not a disinfectant or sanitizer.

    1. The multi-surface cleaner is safe for most sealed surfaces. If you’re unsure, we recommend testing on an inconspicuous spot first.
