I know in my household we are working towards achieving a more eco-friendly home. That’s why I was excited to try the Utama Spice product line.

Utama Spice, a brand known for its natural and sustainable products, offers a variety of natural cleaning solutions that caught our attention. And now that we’ve got to try them out, I will be sharing our experience and thoughts on Utama Spice’s natural cleaning products.

So let’s get to it.

Product Overview

As mentioned, the Utama Spice product line includes a variety of cleaning products but we personally tried:

  • Laundry Soap – Lemon & Orange Scented
    • Made with essential oils and natural and biodegradable ingredients
  • Linen & Room Spray- Orange & Bergamot Scented
    • Eco-friendly orange bergamot scented spray
  • Multipurpose Surface Cleaner- Pink Grapefruit & Bergamot Scented
    • Eco-friendly spray for any surface made with plant-based ingredients

Testing the Products

Okay so, here at Major League Mommy, you know we’re all about giving you the real. So, to provide an accurate and comprehensive review, we tested each of the following Utama Spice cleaning products in real-life scenarios throughout our daily routine.

Here’s what we found:

Laundry Soap

Utama Spice’s Laundry Soap worked as expected. Although it’s made with natural ingredients, there were no stains or yucky odors on our clothes after washing.

However, if you like to have that clean laundry detergent smell that sticks to your clothes, this may not be a great fit for you. The laundry soap smell isn’t very obvious after washing your clothes. On their website, they do suggest spraying their Room & Linen Spray on your clothes if you’re really missing the fragrance on your freshly washed laundry. We did not do this though.

Linen & Room Spray

Firstly, I just want to say that for some reason this spray did not come with an actual spray head. The company sent me two pump attachments but no spray attachment as it had in the images on their website. I don’t know if this was an error or what, (not a deal-breaker) but it’s definitely worth mentioning. We knocked off a star in our rating below because of that. I have their Begone Bug Spray (Don’t worry, review coming soon for that as well) and that came with the spray head attached and it would’ve been nice to have the same for this product.

Anyway, I had to use an old empty bottle from a previous air freshener I had and fill it with the linen and room spray. I rinsed the bottle out as best I could, but just FYI, using a bottle that was previously filled with a different air freshener could’ve impacted the fragrance a bit.

UPDATE: The company reached out and promptly sent me 2 spray heads for the products that needed one!

I was personally not a fan of the scent. I like the smell of oranges because it just makes me happy (I’m actually using an Utama Spice Body Butter that’s orange-scented and it’s such a mood-booster for me). But I don’t know if the bergamot mixed in created this kind of outdoorsy smell that I don’t personally like. My husband certainly doesn’t mind it though.

Note: Funny, as I’m writing this part of the review, my husband just walked in and said “I really like that orangey smell in that spray you’ve been using.” LOL.

I used this spray in my living room after the smell of my husband cooking onions and eggs for his breakfast (two smells that are so gross to me) traveled in there. and it worked for maybe a few minutes to mask the smell. It wore off pretty quickly. I sprayed it in the air and on my sofa.

Later on, in that same room, I sprayed it again with no one cooking or no other obvious smells going on in the house. The scent lasted about 10 minutes in the air, and maybe 30 minutes on the sofa.

In case you’re wondering, it didn’t leave any stains or mess with the fabric on my navy blue sofa!

By the way, you can also use this spray on your clothing as mentioned previously. We have not done that yet though.

Overall, my household decided to give the Linen & Room Spray 2.5 out of 5 stars.

Multipurpose Surface Cleaner

Utama Spice’s Multipurpose Surface Cleaner definitely proved to be a versatile and effective cleaning spray. We tried the spray on our granite countertops, on our wooden tabletop, in our ceramic sinks and bathtub, and even on our bathroom floors (whatever material that is). We were really hoping for some good natural cleaning products for the bathroom, especially since the kids’ sinks and counter get so messy with toothpaste and other stuff. So that’s exciting.

As you can see from the images below, it actually did a pretty good job at removing grime and dirt from the various surfaces and gave it a nice shine. I didn’t need to scrub very hard or let the cleaner sit on the grime for a while in order for it to work either.

It also had a nice light smell which I can appreciate. I like for the house to smell clean but many cleaners have just a very overwhelming scent where we have to keep doors/windows open and turn on fans so that we don’t suffocate, and that wasn’t the case for this one.

Same as with the Linen & Room Spray, I didn’t get a spray head for this cleaner and instead had a pump which made it difficult to coat large surfaces with the cleaner. I had to pump some out onto a rag and then wipe the surface down. I would prefer to have a spray attachment for this product. I will likely transfer it to one of my other reusable spray bottles. I knocked off a star because of this. It would’ve been a 5 out of 5 if it actually came with the spray head.

UPDATE: As mentioned above, the company reached out and quickly sent me the spray heads I needed, so now I can use the product as intended. I have updated my review for this product accordingly.

Overall, my household decided to give the Multipurpose Surface Cleaner 4 out of 5 stars 5 out of 5 stars.

Bio Bleach

Utama Spice’s Bio Bleach was great when it came to tackling tough stains on fabrics. Despite being free from harmful chemicals, it managed to provide a pretty powerful cleaning performance as you can see in the image below of one of my white washcloths. We were very impressed.

We were also pleased with the fact that it did not emit any strong or unpleasant odors (it doesn’t necessarily smell good and it isn’t scentless, but it doesn’t suffocate anyone either) and it didn’t ruin any of the fabrics.

I’ll be honest. I didn’t measure any of the product out when using it. I was literally just giving my best estimate and followed the instructions on the jar to add the Bio Bleach and Utama Spice laundry soap in a basin filled with water and then let soak for 8 hours and then I washed in the machine with the Utama Spice laundry soap.

They do state that you can add the bio bleach and laundry soap directly into the washing machine instead of the whole 8+ hour long soaking process.

I will have to try adding the product directly to the washing machine to see if we get the same results. I will update this review once I do so.

But, we decided to give the Bio Bleach 5 out of 5 stars.

Sustainability and Eco-Friendliness

The Utama Spice natural cleaning products have a minimal environmental impact which is awesome. The ingredients used in their products are predominantly plant-based and biodegradable, which means they do not harm the environment when they break down. This is a significant advantage over conventional cleaners that often contain harsh chemicals that are harmful to both human health and the planet.

Additionally, Utama Spice products are packaged in eco-friendly materials, such as recyclable, reusable, or biodegradable packaging, reducing waste and contributing to a more sustainable approach to cleaning.

Value and Pricing

You can check the Utama Spice website for the most up-to-date pricing of their products.

Also, keep in mind that this isn’t some huge corporation that has the benefit of lower per-unit costs due to its size and ability to mass produce so quickly. So that impacts the pricing as well.

I will say, the laundry detergent is priced higher than other natural laundry detergents on the market. HOWEVER, we don’t have to use as much of it for a single load so that kind of balances things out. I also feel like their sustainability focus from production down to the packaging makes it even more valuable. Still, this may be out of the price range for many.

As for the Room & Linen Spray, the pricing is on the higher end for products of this nature.

The Multipurpose Surface Cleaner is priced higher than many of the big-name brand products of a similar nature. But the performance and strong sustainability focus should also be taken into consideration.

The cost of the Bio Bleach is what I would expect for such a thing.

While Utama Spice products may be pricier than conventional cleaners, the added benefits of safer ingredients and reduced environmental impact outweigh the price difference in my opinion.

Are Utama Spice Products Worth Trying?

I love what Utama Spice is doing and I would definitely encourage others to give them a try so they can experience this line for themselves. Of course, there are some products that I feel are more worthwhile than others which I will get into below.

But overall, I believe that Utama Spice natural cleaning products are worth trying, especially for those seeking a more sustainable and eco-friendly alternative to conventional cleaners.

Recommendation

After testing these Utama Spice products, we highly recommend the Multipurpose Surface Cleaner and Bio Bleach. My husband, daughters, and I feel that these products performed quite well.

The Linen & Room spray was kind of eh and I won’t likely recommend it to others. However, as I always suggest, you should try it for yourself to see what you think (and I’d love for you to share your experience with us in the comments!). The laundry soap was okay but didn’t necessarily perform any better than natural detergents we’ve tried in the past that cost less.

Final Thoughts

Utama Spice natural cleaning products do indeed provide a sustainable and eco-friendly option for keeping your home clean. With their plant-based ingredients, planet-friendly packaging, and the effective cleaning performance of the multipurpose cleaner and Bio-Bleach, they offer a solid alternative to traditional cleaners.

Why are natural cleaning products a better choice?

Natural cleaning products are generally made with plant-based, non-toxic ingredients that are safer for your health and the environment compared to traditional chemical-laden cleaners that can contaminate waterways and harm ecosystems when washed down the drain.

They also tend to last longer, reducing the frequency of repurchases. Considering the health and environmental benefits, the investment in natural cleaners is well worth it.
