So I'm going to be talking about Shaklee several times this month. They carry some amazing Eco-friendly products that are worthy of multiple reviews and giveaways! Most of you know I've been absent minded lately due to the untimely news that my renters moved out of my townhouse. Well, we started working on it 2 weeks ago and the place was nasty. Shaklee sent us the Get Clean Starter Kit and it couldn't have come at a better time! We took over our new kit to clean the townhouse and it has done wonders!!My brain hasn't fully been functioning with all that's going on. I did bring my camera to take before and after pictures... but I did forget to take some after pictures. I know.. I'm retarded. But here is what I did take:This was after scrubbing for 2 1/2 hours with the Scour Off Heavy Duty Paste and H2 Organic Super Cleaning Concentrate. You can see the difference on the left side. Another 1 1/2 hours was put into cleaning the tub with the cleaner. I wish I had a before we started picture because it was almost black. But it's close to being white now!
I'm not sure if you can tell by the picture but there is grease everywhere on the stove, walls, backboard, oven and even the hood. I used the Basic H2 Organic Super Cleaning Wipes and it took off all of the grease making it look brand new. I also used the Basic H2 Organic Super Cleaning Concentrate on the hood filters and it took off the caked on grease!
I used the Basic H2 Organic Wipes to clean baseboards, surfaces, the washer and dryer, walls, the fridge, dust built up on doors and more. I was highly satisfied with the way they cleaned and took the dirt and grime off.

In 2005, there were 218,316 reported poison exposures that came from household cleaning products. Common household cleaners have dangerous fumes which can increase the risk of asthma and other respiratory problems. Since majority of cleaning companies don't list the ingredients on their products, you can't tell what you are using is safe or not. Many have refused to turn over their ingredient properties to various non-profit organizations. The EPA has said that out of the 81,500 chemicals registered, only a fraction have been tested for human health concerns. Though, the EPA has said that the following household cleaners are hazardous waste: oven cleaners, drain cleaners, wood and metal cleaners and polishes, toilet cleaners, tub, tile, and shower cleaners and bleach.
