Many families are stretching their finances, leaving behind things that are perceived as an absolute necessity. Non-luxury items are suddenly deemed as luxuries, including sanitary products, toiletries and cleaning products.

“Groceries are the flexible expense in a tight budget, and with the cost of living crisis hitting our community hard, cleaning products can feel like a luxury item. Often, people don’t think about toiletries, personal care, or cleaning items when they’re donating to a food bank, but these are very much needed.”


The Cleanery products are super easy to use since they’re powder-based. We also got some cute labels to stick on the bottles. We love having a solution that meets our community’s need without burdening them with waste” Michelle says.
