Our philosophy

Bette’s wonderful cleaning remedies are the inspiration behind everything we do at Mangle & Wringer. But it’s not just her recipes we admire and recreate – her common sense ethos is one we aspire to as well.

Hard working, honest and fiercely loyal, Bette took great pride in looking after some of the country’s most beautiful homes as well as running a busy laundry. She believed passionately that ‘our health is our greatest wealth’ and was always concerned about the effects of toxic and synthetic cleaning products. She had a great love of the countryside and believed that we all have a responsibility to protect our precious environment, which is why she only used products she knew to be natural, safe and 100% biodegradable.

We offer you the same simple and honest commitment:

  • All our products are made using food grade ingredients and are safe and non toxic.
  • Everything we make is biodegradable.
  • All our ingredients come from renewable and sustainable sources.
  • We never test on animals and ensure that our suppliers don’t either.
  • We believe you have a right to know exactly what you’re buying so we list all the ingredients in our products.

We value our customers above everything else so please pass on your thoughts, comments or suggestions and if you need any further information just drop us an email or pick up the phone – we’d love to hear from you.
