Cleaning

Have you ever heard of Shaklee?  Shaklee has a full line of natural and nontoxic cleaning choices that are Safe for You, Your Home, and Your Planet called Get Clean!  Have you ever wondered what's in all those cleaners and detergents you have in your home?  I have looked at the labels and their is some pretty nasty chemicals in them.  I was a little shocked to see some of the products that I thought were natural in the list of Household Products Database and the potential health effects that they can cause.  The database also talks about the safety and handling of all kinds of products, that you could find in your home.  It was great to discover the Shaklee products, that are all-natural!




I was so excited to have the opportunity to review this all-natural cleaning kit.  I love natural products and this was a real plus to review!  My favorite product was the Get Clean Germ Off Disinfecting Wipes, I use a lot of disinfecting wipes and these work great!  They get everything nice and clean, they are fragrance free.  The wipes are strong and durable.  They are very easy to pull out of the container, unlike some disinfecting wipes.  I received all of these awesome products from Shaklee:

  • Basic H2 Organic Super Cleaning Concentrate - 16 oz.
  • Germ Off Disinfecting Wipes - 35 count
  • Nature Bright Laundry Booster and Stain Remove - 2 lbs.
  • Hand Dish Wash Concentrate - 16 oz
  • Dish Washer  Automatic Powder Concentrate - 2 lbs.
  • Fresh Laundry Fragrance Free Concentrate - 32 oz.
  • Soft Fabric Dryer Sheets - 80 count
  • Empty Dish Washer Automatic Concentrate Dispenser
  • Empty Nature Bright Dispenser
  • Organizer Caddy
  • Empty Window and Mirrors Spray Bottle
  • Empty All-Purpose Cleaner Spray Bottle
  • Empty Degreaser Spray Bottle
  • Dropper Pipette
  • 1/4 oz. Dispenser Pump for 32 oz. Bottle
  • Laundry Measuring Cup
  • Dual Measuring Spoon
  • Super Microfiber Cleaning Cloth for the All-Purpose Cleaner
  • Super Microfiber Window Cloth for the Glass Cleaner
  • Super Microfiber Dish Sponge
  • Miracle Scrubber Pad

10 Reasons Why Shaklee Get Clean is an Exceptional Value!

1.  Save Thousands of Dollars
Get Clean products are superconcentrated, saving you money - ounce for ounce!  You would have to spend more than $3,400 on conventional, ready-to-use products from major name brands to get the same amount of clean you’ll find in the Get Clean Starter Kit.

2. This Superconcentrate Can Save You up to $12,000
The one and only Basic H2 is a versatile, superconcentrated cleaner with a thousand uses.  Ninety-nine percent natural and 100% powerful, Basic H2 replaces all the cleaners you’re probably buying now - window cleaners, all-purpose cleaners, degreasers, floor cleaners, tub and tile cleaners, and more - saving you money and space.

Get Clean Basic H2 is the ultimate superconcentrated cleaner!  Look how much you would have to spend to get the equivalent cleaning uses!

To get the same amount of clean as one 16-ounce bottle of Basic H2, you would have to spend:
  • Nearly $482 for the equivalent amount of all-purpose cleaner
  • $12,250 for the equivalent amount of window cleaner
  • $144 for the equivalent amount of degreaser

3.  Safe, Powerful, Green, and Smart
When you use Get Clean, you’re never simply cleaning.  While you make your home cleaner, you can make your family healthier because Get Clean is formulated without volatile organic cleaning compounds.  And you save money without dirtying the earth.

4. Tough on Dirt
Get Clean outperforms or matches 15 national brands, including such products as Pledge Multi Surface Clean & Dust Wipes*, OxiClean**, and Downy April Fresh Ultra Concentrated Fabric Softener Liquid.***

5. Safe for You and Your Family
Before you reach for a conventional cleaner, consider this:  You may be putting your health and your family’s health at risk.  Studies show that household cleaning products can contain chemicals - such as chlorine bleach, petroleum distillates, and ammonia - that can have adverse effects on your skin, eyes, and respiratory system. These chemicals also can be the cause of unexpected trips to the emergency room.

6. Safe for the Planet
Get Clean uses natural and naturally derived ingredients from sustainable sources to offer nontoxic and natural cleaning choices that are Safe for You, Your Home, and Your Planet.  They also contain no phosphates, borates, nitrates, or many other chemicals the planet doesn’t appreciate.

7. Launder for Less
Get Clean Fresh Laundry Concentrate HE Compatible (Liquid) allows you to prespot your laundry with the same thing you use to wash it.  So it not only outperforms leading detergents, but also removes stains better than Shout Advanced Action Gel.‡  And you need only one phosphate-free ounce per load, so you’re saving money while protecting natural resources.
‡This performance test was conducted on August 9, 2007, and is valid only for the named product marketed at that time.
All trademarks are the property of their respective owners.

8. Get Clean is Multitalented
Like Basic H2 and their Fresh Laundry Concentrate, Get Clean Nature Bright Laundry Booster and Stain Remover is a jack (or jill) of all trades, combining stain-fighting power with cost savings and performance that is 60% more effective than  Oxiclean on grass stains*.   From an environmentally friendly bleach alternative that has biodegradable surfactants, is free of phosphates, and really gets clothes bright, to an oxygen- and enzyme-fueled toilet bowl cleaner, this little container contains a whopping 48 loads of bargain.
*This performance comparison was done on January 31, 2008, and is valid only for the named product marketed at that time.  
All trademarks are the property of their respective owners.

9. Don’t Like It? Don’t Pay for It
With their 100% money-back guarantee, you have nothing to lose.  Except dirt and a whole lot of toxins.

10. Save Green, Save the Environment
When you buy the Get Clean Starter Kit versus conventional, ready-to-use cleaners, 108 pounds of packaging waste stays out of landfills and 248 pounds of greenhouse gas is eliminated.  And if that’s not enough, through the sale of Shaklee Get Clean Basic H2 in the last year alone, Shaklee has eliminated the need for 2.7 billion 26-ounce bottles of conventional window cleaner - if placed end to end, these bottles would wrap around the earth more than 18 times!

100% Shaklee Guarantee.  We stand behind each and every one of our products.  The ingredients, purity, safety, and performance of all our Nutrition, Healthy Home, and Personal Care Products are 100% guaranteed.

The PRIZE for this giveaway is the Shaklee Mini Household Kit for one lucky reader of Quick Tattletails.  {$46.95 retail value}.

Found those in a bunch of my lysol kitchen products and the floor stuff (which the floor stuff freaks me out the most). I've started trying to utilize vinegar mixed with water and lemon at times, but sometimes I need something tougher, but not harmful.

Not only did I find those things but I also found out that I had a leak. Thanks to you we got it fixed right away. I would love to go green because we have an indoor cat that loves playing hide & seek in my cabinets. Plus with living a greener life style I can let my inter hippie out.

I really don't have many cleaners with that nasty chemical stuff except the OUT stuff for the carpet pet stains. Also I clean with some natural cleaners but I think the Shaklee pack would be better than what I am using.
