Welcome to Mangle & Wringer

Hello and welcome to Mangle & Wringer, the little Cotswold company that offers you an alternative to the harsh chemical cleaning products that line our supermarket shelves.

If you’ve ever worried that filling your home with a mixture of unpronounceable, synthetic ingredients could be more harmful to you, and your family, than the dirt and bacteria they’re designed to remove, then you’re in the right place. I believe there’s a better, healthier way to look after your home than the toxic chemical warfare the big manufacturers promote, so I’m delighted to share with you the 100% natural cleaning remedies I inherited from long time housekeeper Bette Smith. 

You can read more about our story here.

I also have pleasure sharing Bette’s many years of housekeeping experience and her wisdom and tips to help you protect your household simply, safely and effectively.
