Shaklee Basic H2 Cleaner Giveaway [CLOSED]

Ever since I had my baby, cleaning the house has gone to the wayside--not because of time, but because I don't want my baby around all the chemicals. I have to wait for my husband to be home so he can take the baby away from where I am cleaning. Therefore, when my friend recently became a distributor for Shaklee, a green health company, and asked if I would host a giveaway of their all-purpose cleaner, I was thrilled!

When I received her sample of the Basic H2, I was a little surprised. She had warned me it was small, but I wasn't expecting a tiny 2 ml bottle. When my husband saw it, he said, "This is the cleaner?" However, the solution is super concentrated: two drops added to 16 oz. of water make a bottle of window cleaner, and 1/4 tsp. added to 16 oz. of water makes a bottle of all-purpose cleaner.



I decided to try it on a variety of stuff. Here is what I cleaned and how it rated:
  • Bathroom mirror: Excellent. At first, the mirror was all streaks. I was skeptical until the cleaner quickly dried streak free, better than Windex!
  • Bathroom sink: Excellent. It worked just as well as the harsher stuff I use. And it took me less time because I didn't have to wear gloves or make sure the sink was throroughly rinsed of all bleach-based cleaner.
  • Shoes: Ok. Then again, my shoes are pretty old and really need shoe polish.
  • Baby's toys: Good. Saves me from wasting Lysol wipes.
  • Baby's potty chair: Good.
  • Baby's bumbo: Good.
  • Carpet stain: Excellent! The other day I knocked the potty chair and poo spilled on the carpet. The cleaner got it right out! I tried it on a really old stain too, but alas, my hopes were too high.
  • Kitchen stove: Excellent. Great degreaser.
  • Kitchen sink: Excellent. I will definitely be cleaning it more often now!
Smiles
*I cleaned all of the above using only 3 oz., most of which was wasted on the old carpet stain.
*I feel confident cleaning with my baby around.
*I love not having to wear gloves, rinsing over and over again to remove all cleaner, keeping the windows vented, and showering immediately so I don't smell like bleach.
*No lingering odor, even on your hands.
*The price is unbeatable! Broken down it's about 25 cents per gallon of all-purpose cleaner and 1 cent per gallon of window cleaner.

Frowns
*Nothing I can think of.

Safe and Natural Living is giving away a 2 ml sample of the Basic H2.

Love that it has no toxic chemicals. With pets and children in the house, you can't be too careful.

I like that they offer all of the accessories as well as the products

I like that it is actually effective!! I know that natural cleaners such as vinegar and lemon can be great, but to know that at least one study found that the wipes are more powerful at soil removal than lysol wipes is pretty cool.

I hope I win, because if I like it, I will probably buy more. :)

I like that they make nontoxic cleaners and the cleaner I saw didn't require that much to make a solution to clean (it is truly concentrated so it'll last longer:) annejk112233(at)yahoo(dot)com
