Hi! I’m Bren, a wife, mom, communications professional, and natural cleaning nerd!
Since reading my first cleaning label and deciding I could make my own furniture polish, I’ve spent more than ten years researching and writing about natural cleaning.
With so much conflicting information and greenwashing online, it’s hard to know who to trust for honest information. That is why I created BrenDid.com—to provide you with reliable natural cleaning information —without judgment.
Whether you are new to green cleaning or a seasoned veteran, this is the place for you. I want to help you learn how simple and effective green cleaning can be!
My Journey to Natural Cleaning
I didn’t start out as a natural cleaning expert. When I first started, I was just a mom who wanted to clean my home without exposing my children and the planet to harmful ingredients.
I started researching and testing safer cleaners. Then, little by little, I began to tune out the advertisements and marketing telling me how I should clean and began to trust my own knowledge and experience.
Your Path is Your Own
Have you ever reached under your kitchen sink or into a bathroom cabinet for a bottle of household cleaner and wondered, “How toxic is this?” You want to use more natural cleaners, but you’re not sure where to start.
I understand... because I used to feel the exact same way!
- Overwhelmed by the vast amount of information available.
- Disappointed by cleaners that have failed to live up to their promises.
- Skeptical about the effectiveness of “natural” products and the advice you find online.
You don’t know where to start.
At Bren Did, you’ll learn simple and effective ways to clean. You don’t have to have a degree in chemistry, make your own soap, or give up your dishwasher.
