Clean easily and sustainably with Eco-hacks!

Many of you have asked us for good and eco-friendly cleaning tips. In cooperation with Ellinor Sirén, known for her Instagram account, “Ekotipset” (Eco-hacks), we have produced a special edition of her popular book “Städa hållbart med Ekotipset” (Clean Sustainably with Eco-hacks). Collect your free copy (in Swedish) from the Service Centre at Sparta! The book gives you lots of tips, advice, and recipes for how you can clean all parts of your home easily and in an eco-friendly way using natural and sustainable agents. The famous miracle agent is a good example:
