my cleaner has asked me to buy solvent free cleaning products. How do I know if they're solvent free?

had a quick scan of the cupboard and none of them say the word "solvent". What am I supposed to be looking for and can anyone just tell me the names of some that are solvent free?

Are you sure she didn't mean SLS ?

Its a foaming agent but mainly in shampoos and stuff

I use ecover stuff usually as normal cleaners make me feel ill.

But I've not sure what the ingredients are that set it off

With PFB I went seriously Lentil Weaver and made my own from vinegar and lemon juice (and unicorn sweat) and now I can't go near a Flash floor wipe for dry heaving.

Mum's cleaner wanted specific things, so they arranged that she went and bought it and mum refunded.

Loads of brands to choose from:
Earth Friendly Products
Clearspring/Faith In Nature
Seventh Generation
Tons more but my mind has gone blank!

All are available in Health Shops/online and some are available in supermarkets.

Give her a budget and tell her to get them when she goes shopping.
