My New Love

So I've told you how I'm a closet tree hugger right?  Don't judge me.  I'm just trying to do my part people.  Anyway, since having Avery I'm much more concerned about the products that are in our house and the waste that we create.  I've always heard my Sunday School teacher talk about Shaklee products but never really paid too much attention.  I'd read a couple reviews in bloggy world about their cleaning products so I thought I would check them out.

I. am. in. love.  First their products are all natural, non-toxic, biodegradeable and their fabric softener sheets are recycleable!  RECYCLEABLE!  I love that. Secondly, the products are UBER concentrated meaning less packaging.  Thirdly, the products work better than anything I've used!  No lie!

First you start with what's called Basic H concentrate.  This stuff is liquid gold.  This is will make your all purpose cleaner, window cleaner, and degreaser. 

Isn't that just the cutest little bottle?! It only takes 1/4 teaspoon and 16 oz of water to make your all purpose cleaner.  You read correctly- 1/4 TEASPOON!  I use the all purpose for most everything, counter tops, dusting, and even on my stainless steel appliances.  Yep, no more pesky special cleaner for stainless steel.  Here are some before and after pictures.
Can you see that grimy mess?  Gross.

Couple squirts of Basic H and a swipe of my microfiber cloth, good as new.

My microwave.

Gross right?  Don't judge me.
Much better.

The Basic H can be used for window and mirrors (2 DROPS per 16 oz of water)
 and also as a degreaser (1 1/2 TSP per 16 oz of water).  This is THE BEST window and mirror cleaner you will ever use.  No streaks people!

You can also use the Basic H to clean floors, pots and pans, fabrics, irons, etc.  It's completely non-toxic and safe so you don't have to worry about pesky fumes! By the way, one 16 oz bottle of Basic H is only $12.15.  You can make over 5,000 bottles of widow cleaner with one bottle!

My other favorite product is called Scour Off. This stuff is great for cleaning ovens, showers, white porcelin sinks, or anything that has a lot of built up grime.  Witness for yourself.

We've had this oven for almost 3 years and I've never cleaned it. I'm just keeping it real.

A little bit of Scour Off, water and elbow grease and this was the end result.


My oven looks brand new.  The best part?  This product smells like cherries.  It so safe I could have had Avery help me clean the over (hmmmm, something to keep in mind).  What oven cleaner would you let your kids use? 

I am sharing this with you because I hope I conveyed how passionate I am about these products. I've also started using their laundry products as well and they out perform any other laundry product I've used in the past. I have learned a ton about Shaklee recently and their products are Always Safe, Alway Green and Always Work.  As I've mentioned the are non-toxic (safe around kids, sensitive adults), biodegradeable (to component parts in 30 days) and leave no harmful residue.

I would encourage you that if you have kids, allergies, asthma, etc. you consider switching to Shaklee products.  The Get Clean line is amazing and if you aren't 100% satisfied, you can get your money back! 

Don't hesitate to get in touch with me if you have any questions about the products or the company.  I seriously love these products and would love to share how they've impacted our family!

More (non-cleaning) adventures to come!
