What’s the Hoot about The Hoot All Natural’s All Purpose Cleaner

Disclaimer: This post contains affiliate links.  This post is a collaboration between Mommy Engineering and The Hoot All Natural.  I received this product free in exchange for my honest review.  All opinions are my own.  For more information, please visit our disclosure page.

Not only does my home have two toddlers but I also have a beautiful dog and cat that make the cleaning job even tougher.  It’s tough to keep our homes clean on a daily basis but it’s even tougher to do it with non-toxic products.  This week, I’m working with Tonya Newsome, Founder of The Hoot All Natural, to bring you a line of non-toxic, green products and bring awareness about harmful chemicals.

As you probably already know by now, most cleaning products you find in stores are loaded with chemicals that can be harmful to your family, especially to young kids and pets.  With more and more research on the harmful effects of chemicals found in many of our household cleaning products, it would only make sense to find and switch to alternative methods.  In this case; non-toxic, green, environmentally-friendly products like The Hoot All Purpose Cleaner.

What’s the Hoot about The Hoot All Natural’s All Purpose Cleaner

About the Company: The Hoot All Natural Story

My name is Tonya Newsome. As a working woman, wife and mother of two, I have acquired more than 20 years of cleaning/housekeeping experience. While cleaning in my home and others, I began to notice that many of the cleaning products that I used were damaging and irritating my hands; in addition I also began to experience respiratory issues due to the harshness of the products. In 2014, I began researching the chemicals that were used to create these products, armed with this new information, I decided there had to be a better and more natural way to clean. After many months of trial and error of mixing natural ingredients in my home, The Hoot All-Purpose Cleaner was born. My product allows anyone to attain the clean, fresh home that you know and love, minus the chemicals and side effects. It’s my hope that after using this product you will be motivated to also join the all natural movement and give a HOOT!

I love her story because it’s exactly what mommy engineers do.  We “invent. innovate. design” our way through life.  That’s what motherhood looks like to us.  Her story is that she found a problem and she’s set and determined to fix it.  We need more people just like Tonya Newsome to make our world and our children’s futures much brighter.  

Community Garden Program

Another really amazing thing about Tonya and The Hoot All Natural Company is that every purchase you make contributes to a community in need.  Not only does The Hoot All Natural Company want to educate and bring awareness to the exposure of harmful chemicals in our cleaning products but with harmful chemicals found in our food as well.  The community garden program works with low-income neighborhoods where access to fresh fruit and vegetables are not readily available.

By placing the gardens in these neighborhoods, it not only provides access to healthier food options, but also provides a way to educate, brings unity, and helps reduce crime. -Tonya, Founder of The Hoot All Natural

Q&A With Tonya, The Hoot All Natural

I was able to ask Tonya some questions about her company, product, and future goals.

How did you go about choosing your product ingredients?  

Tonya – I started by doing research and learning the names and effects of chemicals in cleaning products. That is how I build the base of what ingredients to use in my products.

What was your favorite/memorable experience with developing your product? What struggles did you have to overcome to achieve your all natural, non toxic, environment friendly product?

My favorite memory was when I finally got the ingredients correct and the product not only worked it did not smell like vinegar. My struggle was making sure ingredients were natural.

Can you tell me a little more about building community vegetable gardens? How did you get that started? The progress it has made? I can imagine you are changing peoples’ lives! 

I am in the process of talking to churches and community leaders about the benefits of having community garden. This has been more challenging than expected. I refuse to give up because I know this can bring low income neighborhoods  together and help lower crime. We become our brothers keeper.

Are you planning to expand your community outreach? If so, what would you need to be able to do that? 

In the future, I would love to expand across country bringing awareness of chemicals in our cleaning products, foods and building community gardens.

One last question!  Are you looking to expand your product line?  

Yes, I do want to expand. I have been working on air/linen freshener.

The Review: The Hoot All Purpose Cleaner by The Hoot All Natural

I’ve been using the lemon and orange-scented The Hoot All Purpose Cleaner for about two weeks now.  I’ve been working through my house finding different surfaces, stains, and challenging areas where I’ve used this to clean and disinfect my home including:

  • My kitchen counters, cabinets, and stainless steel appliances
  • My bathroom surfaces
  • Also wood, glass, and plastic table surfaces.
  • Cleaning windows, blinds, mirrors and sliding doors

Other non-conventional uses I’ve tried:

  • To clean up spills of milk, juice, and other random food off my carpets
  • Quickly disinfect my washing machine after each use to prevent mold build-up

There are definitely many things to like about The Hoot All Purpose Cleaner.  I love that I can easily read and understand the ingredients in this product.  I can easily search each ingredient for its benefits and love that every ingredient is 100% All Natural.  The scent of the lemon and orange have been wonderful, it’s not overbearing and I love just how clean it smells in my home!

The fact that I can use this for many different things around my house is not only efficient but cost-effective at only $5.95 per 32 oz. bottle!  If that doesn’t sell you, the fact that your purchase contributes to a wonderful community outreach program should!  The lives this company could change with one greener, healthier household at a time is extraordinary and such a beautiful concept to support!

  • Robin Rue

    When it comes to cleaning products, I think natural is the way to go. I think I am going to purchase some Hoot products for my house!

    • http://www.mommyengineering.com Mommy Engineering

      That’s awesome Robin! Thank you and I hope you love them as much I do! Plus you’ll be helping contribute to the Community Garden Program! So amazing!

  • http://parentingpatch.com/ Heather Johnson

    I might try this brand if I ever see it in stores. I use vinegar a lot for cleaning because I like using safer products around my home.

    • http://www.mommyengineering.com Mommy Engineering

      Tonya is wonderful to work with! I’m not sure if you’ll see this in stores but it’s definitely available on Amazon as well as her website! Plus you’ll be contributing to a great cause! I hope you check it out! Thanks!

  • http://echanning.com/ Channing Callahan @ Echanning

    I love jojoba oil! I use it in my skincare routine and it has done wonders for my skin! I also like using natural cleaning products because I have asthma and harsh chemicals just exacerbate it

    • http://www.mommyengineering.com Mommy Engineering

      I can totally understand that! This product does have amazing ingredients!

    • The Hoot

      and let’s not forget the headaches…ugh!

  • Neely

    I love a good all purpose cleaner. Bonus if its good for everyone too. These are harder and harder to come by.

    • http://www.mommyengineering.com Mommy Engineering

      Absolutely and it can become SO costly! This product definitely made my home much cleaner, safer, and it smells great!

  • Lady Anne Bitamor Abit

    It’s hard to find cleaning products with 100% all natural ingredients nowadays! Thanks for introducing Hoot and for the thorough review. I would possibly try in in the future.

    • http://www.mommyengineering.com Mommy Engineering

      That’s wonderful, I hope you give it a try! Tonya is a wonderful person to work with!

    • The Hoot


  • Cassie Liz

    I love natural cleaners and only use them in my house now! This brand sounds great and I’m definitely going to check them out.

  • http://www.girlgonemom.com/ Heather D.

    I try and make my own cleaners when I can. There isn’t always time so products like this help!

    • http://www.mommyengineering.com Mommy Engineering

      That’s awesome that you try to make our own! <3 That is totally cost-effective! I hope you give this product a try! I'm still using it and loving it <3

  • http://www.theroadtodomestication.com/ Kristen from The Road to Domes

    I’ve never heard of this product, but I’ve been evaluating all of my cleaning products lately since the twins started crawling. Definitely don’t want any chemicals around, so this would be super helpful!

    • http://www.mommyengineering.com Mommy Engineering

      That’s exactly when I started looking into the harsh cleaning products i’ve been using! Hope you try this! You will love it!

  • Susanne Leggett Stewart

    This product sounds interesting. I have always found that the all natural products I have tried don’t clean the way i want them to. I may give this one a try. If it can get stains out of carpet, then i will be sold!

    • http://www.mommyengineering.com Mommy Engineering

      Stains out of the carpet are hard to get out and I can understand why it’s hard to switch to natural products when you want a nice clean home! What I’ve learned from the switch it that natural products do work and it DOES requires a bit of cleaning, and 2-3 applications before you see the good results.

  • Jhilmil Mommyinme

    This seems to be a great product, shall give this a try if it is available in India..Really in need of a cleaning organic product!

    • http://www.mommyengineering.com Mommy Engineering

      I’m not sure if Tonya has expanded worldwide but it is available on Amazon 🙂

  • Angela Milnes

    This sounds like such a good product and I love natural cleaners..they are better for the environment.

    • http://www.mommyengineering.com Mommy Engineering

      and your health! <3

  • Divya @ Eat. Teach. Blog.

    This is awesome. I’ve been wanting to make some of my own household cleaners but haven’t gotten around to it. I like the idea of using something non-toxic though.

    • http://www.mommyengineering.com Mommy Engineering

      me too! Especially since my boys are .. well boys and they love to try “new” things!

  • http://leahsaysviews.com/ LeahSay’s Views

    Sounds like a cleaner I would like to use in my home and feel good about not harming my pets or making my family ill.

    • http://www.mommyengineering.com Mommy Engineering

      Very true! That’s one of the reasons why I made the switch to natural products <3

    • The Hoot

      It is!

  • https://www.totallymommedit.com Kanani B.

    This is great. Made me think about how we should know the ingredients in our food…we should know what we’re cleaning the counters with. To the day she passed, my grandma swore by some vinegar and water!

    • http://www.mommyengineering.com Mommy Engineering

      haha Vinegar and water DOES work! I tried it, problem is.. everythng smells like vinegar lol.

    • The Hoot

      Mine too…but Vinegar house for 3 hours? uugghhhh lol

  • http://ThisMomsDelight.com/ Tami – This Mom’s Delight

    I’ve been looking into more natural products lately. I never gave it much thought until I had children.

    • http://www.mommyengineering.com Mommy Engineering

      That’s usually what I’m finding most families do make the switch!

  • Louise Smith

    I recently switched to all natural products like this recently and I’ve got to say, I much prefer them to the more ‘famous’ brands! I would definitely give Hoot All Naturals a try 🙂

    Louise x

    • http://www.mommyengineering.com Mommy Engineering

      You’ll love it! Plus it has a pleasant, not overbearing smell lol, like vinegar 🙂

  • Stacey Dadd

    This sounds great, I’m always on the look out for new natural cleaners to try. I too have a child, dog and cat (and husband lol) plus I’m asthmatic, so it’s imperative that I use as little chemicals in my home as possible. Thank you for this! x

    • http://www.mommyengineering.com Mommy Engineering

      lol and husband! ugh! I totally understand you!

    • The Hoot

      Aghh! Yeah, these will give you break…and save some money!

    • http://www.mommyengineering.com Mommy Engineering

      I hope you find this product suites you well for your family’s needs!

  • http://www.sahmreviews.com Scott

    We’ve been using more and more natural products for cleaning lately. Seems to be gentler on our furniture/etc. too!

    • http://www.mommyengineering.com Mommy Engineering

      Exactly! I love reading the disclaimers on the harsh cleaners, they seem to always freak me out. I didn’t want to spend xx amount of dollars on nice furniture and have it ruined by these harsh products

  • Melissa

    Oh I love this!!! I have a very curious pup at home who insists on licking the floors after I clean them so an all natural product is a must for us. I really like the scents as well, I think the lavender would win in my household, there is something so fresh and relaxing about it (and hey maybe it’ll make cleaning more relaxing as well…ha!). I am gonna have to find me some of this 🙂

  • Susan Minich

    Awesome! I hate the idea of using chemicals in my home. Natural products are the way to go! I’ll check it out!
