We’ve always believed that people shouldn’t have to sacrifice performance when using environmentally friendly cleaners and air fresheners. Our product lines are made with plant-based ingredients and contain no dyes, EDTA, phosphates or chlorine; scented with the finest essential oils, they smell great, too!
For 30 years, we’ve proudly been a family-run business providing customers with plant-based, quality products we would use in our own home.

The Citra Solv Story (naturally, we'll keep it clean)

Back in the day, when you needed something really clean you pulled out a bottle full of so many chemicals it could give the periodic table a run for its money. But heck, it got the gunk off the floors, windows and walls, so really how bad could it be?

In those days, Steve worked with commercial cleaning companies so he quickly learned how to properly clean high traffic spaces. But what he also learned—thanks to Right to Know Laws—was the effect all those cleaning chemicals could have on the workers.

At that point Steve did what any rational-thinking man does when confronted with a problem: he consulted his wife. Together, Steve and Melissa came up with the idea for a natural, environmentally safe cleaner—but one that worked as well as those harmful, toxic ones. Citra Solv was born and immediately put to use as a commercial cleaner. But once Steve and Melissa started a family they began asking the type of questions parents inevitably do: “Why aren’t there any environmentally safe household cleaners?” The next step was obvious—bring Citra Solv to the consumer market. And after countless exhaustive days and sleepless nights, they accomplished just that.

Over the past 30 years the line has expanded from the original all-purpose cleaner to the whole line of wonderfully plant based Citra Solv products you know and love today. Through it all, we have continued our dedication to caring about you, your family and the environment we all enjoy.

Happy cleaning, Steve & Melissa


Biobased is Best

Citra Solv Concentrate, Citra Solv Multi Purpose Cleaner, Home Solv Liquid Dish Soap, and Home Solv Laundry Detergent are now USDA Biobased Certified!

The US Department of Agriculture found that Citra Solv Concentrate and Home Solv Liquid Dish Soap are 95% biobased content, Home Solv Laundry Detergent is 96% biobased content, and Citra Solv Multi Purpose Spray is 100% biobased content.

Biobased products add value to renewable agriculture commodities, create jobs in rural communities, and decrease the US reliance on foreign-sourced and non-renewable petroleum.

Product Transparency

We have no dirty little secrets.

Let’s face it, we’re consumers, too. Just like you, we want to know what’s in the products we bring into our home. Everything that goes into CitraSolv’s products can be found on our labels and here on our website. The first thing we do when developing a new product is to carefully check out the ingredients that will go into it to make sure they are safer and plant-based. We regularly review our existing products to ensure we are using the best ingredients available.

Cruelty Free

Safer for the earth. And every creature in it.

We're definitely people people. But we love our furry friends just as much (okay, maybe even more). So naturally we only make products that are cruelty free. This means we do not conduct any type of animal testing, nor do we condone it. Furthermore, we don't use any animal-based ingredients in any of our products. Additionally, Citra Solv is very happy to support the work and mission of these great organizations:
  • PETA—People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals
  • Leaping Bunny—Coalition for Consumer Information on Cosmetics
  • NAVS—The National Anti-Vivisection Society

You may have noticed the PETA logo proudly emblazoned on our packaging. We are also honored to be included in NAVS’s Personal Care for People Who Care Guide, PETA’s list of cruelty free companies and products and Leaping Bunny’s Compassionate Shopping Guide.

Given our strong stance on animal rights, it’s probably no surprise that we’re also big supporters of pet rescue and adoption. In fact, our cat, D.C., was adopted from a local Connecticut Humane Society. Over the years, we have made many contributions to the Humane Society of the US, as well as several other pet welfare and rescue organizations around the country. We commend these organizations and everyone involved in them for everything they do to protect animals.
