GIVEAWAY!! + Shaklee review

Happy Earth Day! 

I have a great product to share with you and a chance for you to win some of it for your own! 

I am trying to take baby steps toward making our family healthier and our home greener.  We try to eat somewhat healthy – whole grains, limiting take out food, upping our fruits and veggies, etc.  And I am planning to purchase some grass-fed beef in the next few months. :)  I am also trying to make conscious changes in our home too.  We recycle all paper (and when you coupon heavily that is a ton of paper!), don’t use paper products except napkins, have changed out most light bulbs to energy efficient bulbs, etc.

And I am now using a non-toxic, natural cleaner called Basic H Organic Super Cleaning Concentrate from Shaklee.

imageThe 16 oz. bottle is super concentrated!  Here is my bottle of concentrate and my spray bottle containing the cleaner.  This is the 3rd bottle of cleaner I have made and you can see I haven’t even used 1/5th of the bottle!

You dilute it to different strengths for different cleaning projects. 

  • For windows, 1-2 drops to a 16 oz. bottle of water
  • For all –purpose cleaning, 1/4 tsp to 16 oz. bottle of water

You can get up to 48 gallons of cleaner out of this one 16 oz bottle!!  And it only costs $12.15 (or $10.35 member price).

I also love a product they have called Scour Off Heavy Duty Paste. image

I just started using this stuff and it is amazing!  It cleans my smooth-top stove better than the cleaner they sell specifically to clean my stovetop! :)  It is nontoxic, has natural abrasives, and smells tropical! :)  Costs $8.50 (or $7.25 member price)

So, let me show you what I cleaned today!

More than the way it cleans, I love the fact that it is safe, natural, and non-toxic!  It is completely safe for your children to use to help you clean!

  2. The first thing I'd clean would be my mirrors. Windex always leaves streaks, and it would be awesome to not have them anymore!

  3. I've heard such wonderful things about this stuff. I would probably buy Basic H first since it can clean so many things, or maybe the scour off.

  11. If I had the money, I would probably get the Get Clean Household Mini Kit, because it looks useful for everyday cleaning tasks.

  12. If I won the Basic H, I would probably use it on the humidifier. We bought it used and it's full of mineral deposits. The directions say to clean it with bleach, but the previous owner said she always cleaned it with ammonia, so I don't know if she's forgetting since she's elderly and it's been a few years? But I know bleach and ammonia don't mix, and since I'm pregnant I don't want to take my chances and would prefer to use something that does not contain either bleach or ammonia. I'm assuming this cleaner does not, although I was unable to find a list of ingredients on the website.

  13. I would probably buy the 64 oz. H2 Organic Super Cleaning Concentrate if I were going to take advantage of Sarai's offer. It would give me enough for years of cleaning. And if I had it, I would mop my floors first.
