[ Made in USA ] What I Use

This page list USA made products I actually use! I hope the list will soon get long enough that I have to category pages. (Note: most links are Amazon referral links.)


[ LloydPans Bakeware ] These made in USA LloydPans’ non-toxic, stick-resist, light-weight pans made my life in the kitchen much easier and more efficient. I never had to oil these pans and clean up is a breeze. Read more about why I replaced my old bakeware with LloydPans dark coated pans.

Rubbermaid Brilliance Salad and Snack Lunch Combo Kit

[ Rubbermaid Brilliance Food Containers ]
The Rubbermaid Brilliance Food Containers collections are BPA free, air-tight, made in USA, see-through, freezer safe, microwave safe (lid w/ vent holes), stackable, comes in many shapes and sizes.

I use them for bulk items, read how I use Rubbermaid Brilliance.

[ City Threads Organic Cotton Kitchen Towels ] In my effort to use less paper towel, I found these 100% organic cotton towels. These towels are thin yet absorbent enough that they work very well when I cook. They still look pretty good after a year of use. Though machine washable, if you got a fresh stain on it, you can wash it by hand without much effort, unlike the thick and large kitchen towels.

[ Marley’s Monsters Reusable UNpaper Towel ] Also a part of my effort to use less paper towel, I wanted something just for drying hands. These flannel cloths are a little thicker than the City Threads towels, handmade in Eugene, Oregon. See my post for details and conventional and organic options.

[ Tork HK1975A Perforated Roll Towel ] There are still situations where I prefer paper towel over cloth towel. In those cases, my first choice is Tork Perforated Towel. They are chlorine-free, made in USA, 100% recycle fiber, compostable, and cheaper per sheet compared to the leading brand. I was only able to get them in a box of 12 jumbo rolls, so that may be a drawback for choosing this paper towel.

[ Scotch-Brite Greener Clean Natural Fiber Non-Scratch Scrub Sponges ]
100% plant-based scrubber sponges. See my review compared with the Full Circle version.

I also use Scotch-Brite Greener Clean Absorbent Sponge.

[ Luminarc Working Glasses ]
Luminarc Working Glasses are perfect as drinking glasses or to store food. For storing liquids, be sure to get lids (lids are made in France, glasses are made in USA), not air tight but it stays on to prevent a big spill! Comes in various sizes.

[ Pourfect Measuring Spoon Set ] I have yet to find stainless steel set that’s made in USA. The Pourfect set is the best I’ve got. It has odd sizes so it wins over the only other USA made measuring spoon I’ve found.

[ Epicurean Kitchen Series Cutting Board ] I’ve been using this cutting board for many years, other than the slight wear on the surface, it is in good condition. Because it takes high heat, I can run boiling water over it when necessary.

[ Rubbermaid Easy Release Ice Cube Tray ] Truely easy release as claimed, BPA free.


[ Spiff Cloth ] Everyday cleaning without chemicals–Read my post! Best for smooth surfaces, like glass/metal. (clean oil spots well but not for old grime/dusts) For streak less finish, squeeze out as much water as you can before wipeing. Otherwise, it cleans well with more water, too.

Folex Carpet Spot Remover

[ Folex Instant Carpet Spot Remover ] Folex pushed another brand down from #1 for spot carpet cleaning. No smell, no residues of any kind, cheap, easy to use, just read my post. I liked it so much I got the gallon refill. It even works with your carpet cleaning machine.

[ Dr. Bronner’s Organic Liquid Soap ] Anti-bactial soap is making bateria stronger. Swith to Dr. Bronner’s Organic Liquid Soap for hand washing. Remember to dilute it, if not you’d be rinsing it off for a while. It’s also amazing on spot washing fabrics. I only get the unscented version but it comes in many scents.

[ PlumbClear Non-Toxic Drain/Septic Cleaner ] I first used it to clear slow drains and once for a slight emergency. I love that PlumbClear is enzyme and bactiral based, plus, it won’t hurt our old pipes.

Be sure to follow instructions for the solution ratio and activation time. Trust me, it’s worth the wait!


[ 100% Chick T-Shirt ] The softest, most comfortable t-shirt I’ve ever owned. 100% cotton. Many cute designs/colors. Made in USA by a family own business. Read my post for more details!

[ American Giant ] I ended up with a few of their heavyweight hoodies. It’s sturdy with good construction so you don’t look like a blob in it. Free return takes a while to ship back but refund was quick after it’s delivered. Look in my post for my review and a coupon!

This And That

Gabriel Hand & Body Lotion

[ Gabriel Hand & Body Lotion ] This is one of the three things I use to keep my hands from drying and cracking since I washes my hands frequently and I don’t have dishwasher. The lotion is light, not oily, goes into your skin fast, and protections your skin a good while. I usually just use it on my hands so one tube lasts for a good while but you can use it on your body as well.

[ Storage Box ] I needed a room storage solution with clean lines and found Sprout Kids who designs and make their modern kids furniture in USA. (It has been a while since I bought this green and white combo, this exact model now comes in white and raw birch only. While you are there, do check out all the other home storage and furnishing options, too!) They use safe and recycled material!

[ Nexcare Bandages ] Don’t assume US brand bandages are made in USA. So far I only found Nexcare by 3M and Target’s Up & Up bandages are made in USA.

[ Cedarcide Non-Toxic Bug Spray ] Deet-free, made from Texas cedar oil and hydrated silica, can be used on you body and home.
