Green Cleaner: Shaklee Giveaway

This month I’m all about reducing and bottles of cleaner create a lot of garbage! It seems like every time I move I give or throw away bottles and bottles of cleaner. Granted I buy most of them at deep discounts with a coupon, but it doesn’t change the fact that I’m accumulating so much garbage!

I was recently offered a sample of Shaklee cleaner to try. I have to admit I was a bit skeptical, at the risk of alienating all my natural mama’s out there I love chemical cleaners. They smell like they could kill you so I know they are killing germs. Now I don’t love the smell or the fact that my kids can’t use them, but for some reason I’ve been slow to switch to greener cleaners.

Here is what I like about the Shaklee cleaner. It comes in a tiny bottle and you mix anywhere from a few drops to a teaspoon with water to make the solution. Once you have the solution, it cleans almost everything. From wood tables to floors to stainless steel appliances Shaklee works! I’ve heard it even removes sharpie from furniture, but thank goodness I haven’t had to try it!

Here is a chart that compares the cost of Shaklee Basic H2 cleaner to the leading brands.

I was amazed at the savings. I was also amazed that it actually worked! I’ve been using it to clean my kitchen and I’ve been impressed so far. If you want to see some before and after shots (not mine) you can view them here.

If you want to try Shaklee Basic H2 Cleaner, I have TEN Basic H2 Samples to give away. To enter leave a comment sharing how you are going green with your cleaning. If trying to win Shaklee Basic H2 is your first attempt, you can share that too. Each sample pack contains enough to make 1 full size bottle of all purpose cleaner and 1 full size bottle of window cleaner!

Giveaway open to US residents only and ends April 19, 2011.

    I recently started making my own cleaner, but would love to give Shaklee a try!!

  3. Shannon Hall says:

    I want to go all GREEN because I have a houseful of kiddos. I try to buy as natural as I can get. I’ve been using Method products. I would LOVE to win this sample. Thanks for the opportunity!! :)

  4. Niki says:

    I started going green with cleaning products while pregnant with Jake. I’ve also been sensitive to fumes and what not. Having every single window open while cleaning the bathroom didn’t help with the smell from bathroom cleaners. I started with Mrs. Meyer’s. Now I use a combination of Method (their wood cleaner is the bomb), Mrs. Meyer’s, Dr. Bronner’s and home made cleaner & laundry detergent.

  5. Melisa says:

    This is my first time to try to win and I would love to try out the product!

  6. Jenifer says:

    I try to go green with using vinegar and baking soda for most of my cleaner around the house.
    I CANNOT stand the smell of most cleansers!
    I also use microfiber clothes for cleaning mirrors and windows because basically you only need water to clean with them!
    Would love to try Shaklee

  7. Rebekah Shaver says:

    I like you have been hesitant to switch to green cleaners. I am a germaphob, so I just can’t picture something natural killing all the HORRIBLE germs. I used to use bleach or ammonia for almost everything. I want to switch to green cleaners mainly because I don’t like having and using products that aren’t safe for my children. My first “green” cleaner was a Method daily shower spray. I am excited to try something like Shaklee, especially since it is SO COST EFFECTIVE!! Cost was another BIG reason that I haven’t bought many green cleaners.

  8. Susan M. says:

    I have never tried the more green cleaners–but this giveaway looks like a good chance to try them! I am trying to do other green things–compost, use cloth grocery bags, etc.

  9. Angie V says:

    I agree with Rebekah, I haven’t switched yet because I think that it wouldn’t clean as well. So I would be excited to try this out.

  10. Johanna Lyn Dierking says:

    I am trying to use organic pesticide on my garden this year as well as use green cleaners! My mom uses Shaklee and I would LOVE LOVE LOVE to try it!!!

  11. Jeremiah says:

    Trying to win this is my first attempt, but I like the idea of using green-based cleaners and would love to use them in my house!

  12. Heather mcdaniel says:

    Cleaned out my cleansers also and trying to use baking soda, and vinegar for all cleanings

  13. chris says:

    Like you I’ve been slow to change, because what I have works. I’m not sure this “green” stuff will work. :-) I’ve made homemade shower spray as my slow to change over start to being green.

  14. Laurie says:

    I’ve been striving to be green (and save money) by making my own cleaning products. My fresh batch of laundry soap is cooling as I type. I’ve never tried Shaklee…but would love to! :)

  15. Julie R says:

    I make my own glass cleaner, but have a hard time going away from the strong chemicals to clean my shower. We have hard, iron filled water that ruins the tub and toilet. The cleaners I use to get it off are so strong I have to hold my breath while I spray them and then leave the room. Not good for me or my family at all. I would love to try the Shaklee product to see if it works.

  16. Erin S says:

    I tried to use vinegar as a cleaner but fall back on the bottles I already have. Would love a green cleaner that really works…..especially disinfecting.

  17. Kristi says:

    I have a 9 month old crawling all around the house and would love to go green for him! Really interested to see how this product works!!!

  18. Lorrel Smith says:

    I’m with you in that if it smells that strong it’s gotta be enough to kill everything in sight! I’ve been hesitant to go green for a lot of the same reasons. I think something green might actually help me cut down on my cleaning time especially in the kitchen. A lot of the chemical cleaners are once that you have to clean the counter after you’ve cleaned it to remove the chemical since they aren’t food safe. I’d love to try some of this Shaklee! :)

  19. Darcy says:

    I’ve actually been experimenting with Baking Soda as a cleaner. It’s been a great cleaner, but I have trouble REALLY getting all the residue up. I
    I’m with you on the “green” cleaners though.. I just have a hard time believing that they are really cleaning well.

  20. Aimee says:

    I’ve never tried Shaklee, but would love to! I’ve been rediscovering the many uses of vinegar, which is a natural disinfectant and is a wonderful replacement for fabric softener.

  21. Hannah Garst says:

    We are going green by making sure we don’t use any chemicals when we clean. It is better for our kids, ourselves, and the environment. I use a lot of natural cleaners (vinegar, baking soda, etc.) but would like to try some Shaklee!

  22. monti benge says:

    I have been trying to make the switch to eco friendly products as well as organic food for my family. It is a hard transition. I have been able to switch to method brand for my laundry and dish cleaning but when it comes to the real cleaning like the bathroom i resort to pinesol or bleach where i feel like i know it is working. I would love to break away from that and find a product that is eco friendly and strong enough to kill all those germs as well. I recently saw shark tank which featured a man with a new product to clean fabric and air freshener, to replace toxic chemicals that come from products such as febreeze. I am waiting for it to arrive in the mail. Thanks for sharing about shaklee, i would love to try it!

  23. Kari says:

    I pretty much just use lysol to clean, but I’ve wanted to switch to green cleaners. I love knowing that this one would actually work!

  24. Robyn says:

    I go in spurts using natural cleaners. But somehow always end up back to commercial cleaners. The one thing I have been consistent with is making my own laundry detergent. It sounds like the Shaklee is convenient, so that might help me stick with it! I’d love to try it.

  25. Lauren says:

    We already use vinegar to clean a lot but I have been keeping that bottle of mr. clean around for the really icky stuff. I have been wanting to try this but was worried about the cost, now I definitely will try it!

  26. Mary A. says:

    Been wanting to try natural cleaners…tried vinegar and it worked, but I hated my house and clothes smelling like it! :(

  27. Darla says:

    I’ve never tried Shaklee, but I would like to go green with my cleaning, I think! I have been kinda like you, the other stuff smells like it can kill anything so it must be good.

  28. Monica says:

    I have been taking very small steps towards a healthier home… replacing paper napkins for cloth and using cloths instead of paper towels for cleaning. Might just have to try the Shaklee products.

  29. Brenda says:

    I’m trying to go green because it’s healthier for my grandkids and pets. I would love a sample to try out and share with my kids, to help them go green too.

  30. Isabel Acosta says:

    I am the same, I have a hard time giving up on chemical cleaners bc I want to make sure if I make the effort to clean that I am also disinfecting. I have used vinegar and water to clean mirrors or windows, or as a rinse aid in the dishwasher (I have heard good things and bad about doing this though). I have tried other Shaklee products in the past and this would be something I would want to try

  31. Nelda says:

    I would love to show my family how you can use something so natural to really clean! I love the idea of going green!

  32. Kimi says:

    Taking small steps. Just not sure if I trust them yet. Although my grandma once said that a bottle of Clorox goes a long way to clean. This sounds very cost effective as well. Thanks!

  33. Lynn says:

    I would love to ‘go green’, but I am skeptical when using green products because they don’t “smell clean”. What are the ingredients used in this product?

  34. Angel says:

    I have been using vinegar, baking soda, & reuseable rags to help “green” my routine.

  35. Nancy says:

    Melaleuca has developed a natural disinfectant (Sol-U-Guard Botanical) that harnesses the power of the herb thyme, and is proven to kill 99.9% of germs and viruses, including staph, H1N1, and so many more. I use Melaleuca’s EcoSense line of cleaners, and love them, and know I am not poisoning the air in my home, or leaving harmful residue for my kids and pets to get into.
    So they have figured out how to harness the power of nature to really WORK. And they are also very concentrated, so they are very cost effective.
    I haven’t tried Shaklee.

  36. Deanna says:

    I currently use vinegar/baking soda to clean a lot of things and only bleach “occasionally”… for the pp who said it was hard to get the “grime” up add a drop of shampoo and it will get any grime you need up.

  37. Laurie says:

    I flirt with vinegar/water cleaner at times, but use the “real” stuff esp. in the bathrooms where all the grime it. I would certainly like to try another green cleaner!

  38. Sandra Griffin says:

    I have tried by buying products at the local store that are labeled “green” but I’m not totally convinced they are. My husband has been wanting to get into using vinegar and baking soda but we haven’t committed to that, yet. I have a friend who loves Shaklee everything …. especially their vitamins but I have never ordered anything … not sure why? I would definitely LOVE to give it a try! What a nice giveaway!!

  39. Debbie Adams says:

    I have always been hesitant to use “green” products because I am not convinced that it actually kills the germs just because it cleans it. But with 2 girls with allergies that are getting worse and the rest of our family seeming to have issues, I am trying to switch my thoughts on what we eat as well as what we clean with. I would love to give shaklee a try!

  40. Jessie says:

    I’ve been trying to use less paper towels and more cleaning rags / towels. I buy so much less paper towels, so cost savings is an added benefit!

  41. Jenn C says:

    I’ve been making my own laundry detergent for over a year now. Have tried making dishwashing detergent, but not found anything that really works yet. My Mom used to use Shaklee when I was growing up – would love to try the cleaners!! Thanks

  42. Diane says:

    I do buy green whenver possible with a new baby in the household.

  43. Piper says:

    Most of my cleaning is now done with vinegar (I even use vinegar in place of fabric softener to avoid the chemicals) but I’d love to try a natural cleaner as well!

  44. I have been trying to gradually switch to more “green” cleaners. They cost a little more money (basically the reason why I am not doing it all at once), but my husband and I are trying to get pregnant so I’d like to make the switch now :) I have heard good things about Shaklee, but again, don’t want to pay the money unless I am sure it is a great product.

  45. MelissaB says:

    My latest effort to going green is starting a compost pile with my food scraps that I use to flush down the sink. I’ve never heard of this cleaner before, but it sounds awesome!

  46. Lynsey says:

    I’ve been using vinegar and water for awhile now, but would love to try Shaklee. I’ve heard nothing but good things about it.

  47. Cassie says:

    I can relate to your thought of “if it smells like it can kill you, it is strong enough to kill germs” as I was a germaphob and crazy about it! But about 1.5 years ago, I realized (after research) what affect it could potentially have on all of our health and have been making the switch to green cleaners. We started by using coupons and sales to get the green products and then we also started making our own with mostly vinegars and essential oils and honestly LOVE THEM! We have both homemade and store bought (when there is a deal) and it has caused us to turn more and more natural in each area of our lives!!

    Also, this is my first attempt to try and win a sample!

    Thanks!!

  48. Becky says:

    I guess we’ve always been green cleaners in my house. It’s just alot cheaper and healthier. I started “cleaning green” when I realized that my severe allergies wouldn’t allow for anything else. I make all our own laundry detergent, window cleaner, fabric softener, all-purpose cleaner, glass cleaner, grout cleaner (Borax is amazing!), body soap, shampoo, conditioner, after-shower spray down stuff, stove top cleaner and “soft scrub” type stuff.

  49. Alison says:

    I haven’t really tried green cleaners yet. This would be a great chance to get started. I do recycle everything I can and use reuseable grocery bags. Thanks!

  50. MichelleH says:

    I’ve switched to mostly just using vinegar. However, my husband hates the smell (yes, it fades but he says not fast enough lol) and it doesn’t seem to work on the inside of the glass window of the oven. I’m curious to try Shaklee. Green is good, but green and cheap is GREAT!

  51. Heather g says:

    I use a mix of store bought cleaners & homemade ones. Trying to use more & more green cleaners.

  52. patricia says:

    I had forgotten about Shaklee, my mom used to have it and used the products. I am trying to go green by recycling more, using less paper towels and attempting to stick to fiber cloths, vinegar instead of cleaners.

  53. Lynne B says:

    I’ve tried several recipes for “green” cleaners and used the Dr. Bronner’s for the children’s sake when helping but haven’t come across the perfect mix yet . . .

  54. Ruth says:

    We’ll be moving into a new home in a couple of months and I really want to start using greener cleaners from the beginning. Would love to try Shaklee!

  55. Jen says:

    I clean using castile soap, tea tree oil and water – it cleans everything! I use it to clean floors, counters, sinks, toilets… I also mix it with a tiny bit of grapeseed oil and use it as a body wash. I combine baking soda, castile and tea tree to make a soft scrub that works as well as the commercial brand and I can actually say that my skin is healthier for it. I get the peppermint soap and it smells so good… I love knowing my dogs, who are constantly cleaning up after my kids, are safe from chemicals when they eat off the floors. While I love it, I’d love to try another green cleaner just to compare.

  56. Deanna says:

    I use soap nuts for my laundry and have the Green Works cleaners. When the Green Works runs out I’d love to go to something more affordable and was looking into this or the Pink Solution.

  57. Heather says:

    My little girl might have asthma. So although I would never have tried green cleaners before, I am open to anything now that might help.

  58. niki says:

    I have three children under the age of 9. I’ve recently started to “green” our home. I started by cloth diapering my littlest one (she’s now 1yo) and I purchased some of the Dr. Bronners liquid soap last month (it claims to have a gajillion uses!). I find that some “green” products just don’t work though. Dr. Bronners smells great and I love the company and idea, but as a hand soap, the soap shoots out of the dispenser so far and so fast that my hubby actually thought I was being cheap and watering down the soap:) Tilex is the worst thing I have in the house, I use it in the shower and have to run the fan, open the window and vacate the upstairs for 1/2 hr. Sigh! I haven’t tried Shaklee!

  59. I would love to win this…I am trying to go green and have less poisonous crap in my house!!

  60. kathy b says:

    Love to try shaklee. Been hesitant to change because I really want things ”
    clean”

  61. dee johnson says:

    What a way to allow others experience a green clean! Thanks for this giveaway! We use vinegar, make our own laundry deterg., and just use alcohol on faucets, etc. in the winter to kill germs instead o expensive lysol type wipes. I hear peroxide works for that, too, but haven’t used it myself. Love green for our allergies/asthma!

  62. Mandy C. says:

    I love Clorox anywhere and once my bottle is finished I was going to use a recipe that a friend of mine uses so that I can start being more green! I want to cut on having to buy a lot of products that aren’t safe around my little ones. I would try Shaklee though to see how it works.

  63. Sue D says:

    I hate the smell of most cleaners so I usually use baking soda and vinegar as cleaning agents.

  64. Karen says:

    I want to start making our own cleaners, but first I want to use up what’s in my stockpile. I would like to try this especially because it’s cost effective.

  65. Lori B says:

    I’ve been kind of slow to switch to green cleaners, too. I would really like to be more green in the cleaning dept. so I would LOVE to give Shaklee a go. I’m almost certain I will have to test the claim to remove Sharpie!!!

  66. I make my own cleaners but I would love to try Shaklee!

  67. Summer says:

    This is the second post I’ve read about Shaklee in a week and I’m VERY interested! We use baking and soda and vinegar for a LOT of different things. Sometimes I add essential oils. I’ve been slowly converting b/c I hate throwing away conventional cleaners and wasting them.

  68. Stefanie says:

    I am a Mom of a 3 year old, 2 year old and 3 month old and also do daycare so every day have a house full of ten kids! I am obsessed with keeping things clean the GREEN way and just recently heard of Shaklee. I have been tempted to purchase to see if it can tackle the task of cleaning up after a houseful of active kids. Would love for a chance to try some Shaklee cleaning products to prove to me they can clean up after everything:)

  69. Bonnie says:

    I already use baking soda and vinegar in most of my homemade recipes but sometimes it just doesn’t do the job so I would love to try the Shaklee products.

  70. Sunnie says:

    I haven’t tried to many green cleaners yet either, thanks for the giveaway!

  71. Dorie says:

    Would love to win and try Shaklee. I have always tried to be as green as can be. We have lots of allergies, the fumes bother a few of us.

  72. JoLynn says:

    I recently began reading your blog and have to thank you for the great toddler teaching tips and inspiration to keep things in perspective as a SAHM. I’ve been wanting to go green w/our cleaning products and am currently in the process of purging out our chemical cleaners. Right now, I’m down to one bathroom, a multipurpose for kitchen and glass and one wood cleaner. Once they’re all gone, it’s clean green for our household! I’ve heard about Shaklee and am very intrigued. A sample would be fantastic! Very kind of you to do a give-away. Best of luck to all : ) Also, good luck on your “green” efforts!

  73. Leslie M.P. says:

    I made most of my cleaners. Occasionally, a homemade cleaner doesn’t do the job very well. Nice to have a backup.

  74. I’ve made laundry soap, and I try to use natural cleaners.

  75. Beth says:

    I’ve been wanting to try Basic H for a long time–would love to win a sample!

  76. Sheila Laurence says:

    I go back and forth. When I try ‘green’ cleaners, I tend to go back to the commercial ones, sometimes because it’s easier, and sometimes because I’m not sure about the germs. I would like to try this. I like the idea that this cleaner cleans several things.

  77. kimberly E says:

    I would love to try this cleaner!

  78. Carri says:

    I’ve been using just vinegar and baking soda for about a year now… My husband is very skeptical of them… So I am always trying to find something new and I would love to try Shaklee…

  79. Shana says:

    I usually make my own cleaners, but I miss that clean smell! I would love to find a cleaner that smells clean but isn’t harmful to my children, especially considering that two have asthma and excema.

  80. Amy Bravo says:

    I try not to use paper towels–I use microfiber cloths and rags, and I’ve been trying to switch to “green cleaners” like 7th generation

  81. Elizabeth says:

    I use brands like Seventh Generation even though they are more expensive. I also like the old stanbys of vinegar and baking soda. I’d love to try out this brand.

  82. Kris says:

    I use vinegar and baking soda on everything…except the toilet bowl once every 3 months, when i use “The Works” to get the build up off. Talk about fumes! Nasty! The clean smell everyone is talking about is chemicals. I heard Sage and lavender are good “odor eaters” if you want to go more natural. The gallons of vinegar and big boxes of baking soda take up a lot of room and would love to try a concentrated version like Shaklee.

  83. Laura says:

    I have seven messy children, so everything over here is dirty, and I am training them to help with the cleaning, so I really need products that work and will be safe for them to use. I would LOVE to try this product out. Thanks for giving us a chance to do that!

  84. Ruth says:

    I use vinegar for most cleaning needs: Countertops, floors, laundry, etc. I like ‘chemical’ cleaners, because i haven’t found a ‘green’ cleaner yet that claims to actually disenfect, or kill any germs/bacteria. I use Lysol cleaner everywhere i can think of after a round of sickness makes its way through our house. I also love Murphy’s Oil for my wood floors. The smell reminds me of the barn i rode horses in growing up when we cleaned the leather tack.

  85. Andrea Watts says:

    I reuse my plastic grocery bags and I’m using household plastic containers to start my seeds for my vegetable garden

  86. Kathy says:

    I make most of our cleaners but would love to try Shaklee, have wanted to for years, just haven’t taken the plunge.

    Thanks!

  87. I have wanted to try this cleaner before but have never had a chance. I have rarely used a natural cleaner, but I would love to try it! To have one cleaner would cut back SO much on all the clutter of multiple bottles! <3

  88. Maria says:

    Bleach has always been my tried and true cleaner, but, with 6 kids and needing them to help with the housework, I’m hesitant to share the load, knowing bleach could be harmful in so many ways if not properly used. I’ve recently started using white vinegar for some household tasks and am amazed at how well it works. I have friends who have sworn by Shaklee Vitamins; I’m sure their cleaning products are just as stellar and I’d love to give them a try.

  89. melissa says:

    My best friend showed me Shaklee on a recent trip to her home. I’ve recently been using vinegar and baking soda. Baking soda really is the best cleaner for my stove top I have ever found. I am a childcare provider so I’ve also used a lot of Lysol for the everyday clean up. But after using Shaklee at my friend’s house I am excited to get some of my own!

  90. Mandie says:

    We’ve been trying to go green in our house, but its so much more expensive! Everything is expensive in AK… This would be a great thing to check out to fit into our budget and green at the same time!

  91. Cathy says:

    We recently moved to a small town with not much selection at the grocery stores for cleaning…no one here even sells my favorite cleaner :( so I’ve really been disappointed in that. It seems the only options here are chemical cleaners which I hate! So, even though I hate the smell, I am thinking about converting to all vinegar/baking soda/water cleaning solutions. I’d rather smell the vinegar for a while than to use the chemical cleaners. I’ve always heard good things about melaleuca so I’ve been considering that also. I’ve never heard of Shaklee, but I would love a sample of it to try it out! I swear, every time I squeeze the trigger on these chemical cleaners I cringe a little bit! LOL

  92. Latrice says:

    I try to use vinegar and water when I can. I would love to try this product though.

  93. Stefanie says:

    I use Norwex products… Amazing and only have to use water! The window cloth is my favorite. Wet cloth, ring out excess water, wipe down mirrors, windows, etc. And walk away. Every time I come back, amazed at how perfect the glass is, not a water stain left behind, perfectly clear… Not only a time saver but money saver too! Norwex.org
    Love to test out green products to see what does the job and helps me save time and money:) Have been hearing the buzz about Shaklee products for some time, excited to try it out!

  94. Megan says:

    Never heard of this product, but it sounds amazing! I have been using vinegar to clean my kitchen. But my husband hates the smell too. I have some stains on my stainless steel stove-top that I can’t seem to get rid of, perhaps this product would do the trick!

  95. Anna says:

    Glad to hear you’ve been happy with it. Been wanted to try it, but seems cost prohibitive. We use vinegar a lot, but I’m not totally in love with that. Hoping it try this soon!

  96. Tami says:

    Ok ~ Wow! I just contacted a Shaklee rep yesterday to ask about their products. A free sample would be wonderful to try out. I have to do something about the fabric softener for the laundry ~ that’s why I contacted them in the first place. The regular stuff makes half of my family itch and I’m tired of the extra chemicals anyway.

  97. Dawn says:

    I have never tried it, but have wanted to many times. I just don’t want to buy without trying. I’d really like to give it a try. :) It’s very nice of you to do the giveaway! I have severe allergies, so I’m trying to go green.

  98. Samantha Goff says:

    I have been using Melaleuca products lately for the lack of chemicals, but i have heard great things about Shaklee and would be interested in trying them out.
    Thanks

  99. Maren says:

    I’ve wanted to try this before! We are currently making our own cleaner with vinegar and essential oils!

  100. Mayra says:

    I have tried vinegar, lemon and baking soda. I’m in for the giveway!

  101. Annette says:

    I’ve been using up cleaners I already have and contemplating switching to a greener product but I’m like you, I want to know it’s killing those germs! I would love to try this out.

  102. Heidi K says:

    I clean my toilet bowl with vinegar and baking soda.

  103. I make my own cleaners, but they don’t always work as well as I want them too so I find myself going back to some commercial products. It’d be nice to have a green commercial product!

  104. Teresa says:

    My sister use to sell Shaklee and I was a regular customer for Basic H. It is wonderful and had not thought about it in a long while. Glad to get a reminder. My husband loved it to wash the cars and even our dog. Love to win! Thanks.

  105. Dona Perkins says:

    I can’t stand the fumes of most cleaners, so we just started using Mrs. Meyers. I also use a LOT of vinegar and baking soda, especially the cleaners I give to my kids to clean with. I would love to try the Shaklee and do a comparison of smell, effectiveness, etc. Thanks!

  106. Crissy says:

    I’ve been trying to reduce the amount of cleaners we need and go with greener products, but I can’t find a good all purpose cleaner out there. What works for the ceramic sink can’t go on the stainless steel, and won’t clean the soap scum in the tub and so on. I’d love to find one product that works on everything!

  107. Krista says:

    I would love to try this cleaner. When I did housekeeping professionally, I exclusively used Method cleaners, which I liked a lot. I cannot go back to Windex or 409 after that. However, in an attempt to be green and frugal, I’ve started looking into making my own products. I started with searching for homemade softscrub and found a baking soda plus dish soap mix that works rather well.

  108. Nikki says:

    I have been slow to switch to green cleaners too. This sounds great – would love to try!

    I just read an article today about how horrible all the chemicals in cleaners are for your health. I’m ready to switch to natural! Thanks for the giveaway!

  110. Christine Pries says:

    I am trying to switch all of my cleaning products to Green cleaners and I would love to win a bottle. My son has a breathing issue that has yet to be determined, still waiting on results of tests.. but this would be my first time using Shaklee and if it works well for my son, then I would be a costumer for life !!

  111. patti says:

    I was using some of the commercial “green” cleaners and have now switched to using vinegar or baking soda whenever possible. I’ve heard good things about Shaklee, but have never tried it…would love the opportunity.

  112. Diana says:

    I use mostly vinegar and baking soda for all my cleaning. I’ve never heard of Shaklee before.

  113. Bree says:

    I’ve never used “green” cleaners other than vinegar, and that’s few and far between! Thanks so much for the chance to win. I’m really starting to re-think a lot of things we have in our house, cleaners being one of them!

  114. Janelle says:

    I use a lot of vinegar and baking soda!

  115. carolyn says:

    I make my own cleaner, but still lust after the chemically bad for you one…how can something that smells good be sooo bad for you….evil companies.

  116. Deidre says:

    I love Mrs. Meyers cleaners but would love to try out Shaklee cleaners.

  117. Deborah C. says:

    I use vinegar or baking soda for almost everything, but I’d love to give Shaklee a try!

  118. Julie says:

    I would LOVE to try this!!! We used environmentally friendly laundry soap, dish soap, paper towels, napkins, etc. I am always looking for great ways to clean the house in an Earth friendly way!

  119. Pat Mickel says:

    I have been going green naturally as much as I can. I sure is less expensive for me. I would also love to try this product since I have heard good things about Shaklee over the years.

  120. Amy says:

    I have been wanting to try Shaklee since I heard about it one year ago!! I would love to win so
    I can get hooked like I imagine that I will. I already steam my floors so that I don’t have to put chemical on them for my kids and pets!!! Thanks, Amy

  121. Katie says:

    Sign me up. We’ve been using norwex cloths to clean, but would like a better cleaner to use with them for things like the bathroom. Seventh Gen wipes work well for us too.

  122. Dedra says:

    I have never tried the green cleaners, but would love to give them a try. It would be great to have one cleaner that is safe and will clean most everthing!

  123. meagain2 says:

    I have been reluctant to give up my regular household cleaners, but I have found vinegar to be very cheap and versatile to clean with, so I am using that more and more

  124. meagain2 says:

    I still use my same cleaners, but am starting to use vinegar more often to clean with other than the odor it is great to clean with, and you cant beat the price

  125. Marie says:

    I’m looking for things that work, yet don’t smell. I once sprayed a cleaner on a spider in the tub. When the spider died on impact it kinda freaked me out. I wonder what all those harsh smells are doing to us??? Taking baby steps towards going green.

  126. Brandy says:

    I switched over to green cleaners a couple of years ago and I find that I like them so much better. I love being able to breathe properly while I clean. I haven’t tried Shaklee yet but I would love to!

  127. Kim says:

    I try to clean greener by using vinegar, but I’m in the process of using up all the “regular” cleaners I already have (not very environmentally friendly or economical to throw it all away). I would love to switch all my cleaning products to Shaklee. Their products have gotten wonderful reviews and I’m exciting about giving them a try!

  128. Mary says:

    I’ve never heard of this product and would love to try it! We’ve been switching some cleaners out for baking soda or lemon, and from what I’ve noticed, simple is better!

  129. Mary says:

    I’d love to give Shaklee a try! I’ve never heard of it before.

    We’ve been switching some cleaners out for baking soda or lemon lately, and from what I can tell, simple is better!

  130. Stephanie says:

    Would love to try this out! Green and inexpensive is awesome! Usually most green products don’t clean very well which is why I haven’t converted. Hopefully, this one will do the trick!

  131. Sue says:

    Always up for something new! I would love to get rid of my cleaners for something better.

  132. Amy B says:

    I would love to try the shaklee cleaner – I like that its concentrated and safe for my four kids too.

  133. Katy says:

    I have been making my own cleaners for windows, disinfecting, shower cleaner, & multi-purpose cleaner. I love that with “green” cleaners I don’t have to worry as much about my kids using them to clean & they also won’t trigger my daughter’s asthma. The only problem is that the several multi-purpose & shower cleaner recipes I’ve tried, just do not clean as good as chemical cleaners. I would love to give Shaklee a try & if it will work in my bathtubs/showers I know I’ll stick with it!

  134. Shanna says:

    I have a few friends who sell/use Shaklee. I’ve always wanted to try it. I use microfiber cloths to clean.

  135. Molly says:

    I’m not sure how green this is, but I won’t let my husband use bleach on anything but the toilet. He’s convinced it’s the *only* way it’ll get clean. At least I’ve convinced him that not everything needs it… finally.

  136. Linda says:

    I have never heard of Shaklee but would love to try it. I have been using green cleaners for several years through an online company and by making my own. I beleive we need to get the chemicals out of our homes and out of the water supply.

  137. Danielle W. says:

    with little ones in the house i guess i should try to be more green…like you i like the smell of regular cleaning products…you walk into the room take a sniff and think…yep this is clean! But i guess for my family i need to be a bit greener

  138. Jan says:

    Its time to spring cleaning, beginning with the windows. My Mom loved Basic H!

  139. Beth says:

    I love green cleaners and would love to try the Shaklee cleaner. I am looking for a product that is inexpensive and cleans well!

  140. BethB says:

    I love green cleaners and would love to try the Shacklee product. I would love to find a product that cleans well and is cost effective!

  141. samantha r says:

    I try to use vinegar for some things but I still use “regular” cleaners for a lot of things. I would love to try some green products!

  142. Paula says:

    Please enter Paula in the giveaway.

  143. Kathleen B says:

    I have been waiting to switch to green cleaners until my regular stuff is all gone…can’t make myself throw it away!!

  144. Rebecca R says:

    I’m working on switching by buying green instead of regular cleaners…this will be my first time trying Shaklee but i’ve heard great things about it!

  145. Rebecca says:

    I have not really switched either. I use vinegar for mopping just because I think it does a good job but am still using Soft Scrub for bathrooms.

  146. Nicole K says:

    I have started using vinegar to clean and I also use it in the laundry. I have wanted to try Shaklee for a while.

  147. stacy says:

    I use mostly vinegar & water for cleaning. I’ve never used shaklee products

  148. Merrilee says:

    I’m going greener by using old washcloths and towels to clean up spills instead of paper towels.

  149. I am trying to do more to promote a greener lifestyle. We have been recycling for years, but like you Happy Housewife, I have not found the greener alternatives to be very successful in cleaning the dirt and grime my family of five creates. I would love to try this product, maybe it is the answer to my green clean phobia.

  150. April V says:

    I try to use as many natural cleaners as possible like vinegar!

  151. Dana8945 says:

    Hi there,
    I would love to sample the Shaklee Basic H2.
    We started becoming more concious of the world around us and how the products we use impact our family and ecosystem. After moving to the country and living off a river, we realized how every product we use and what we do directly impacts everything else. I now try and make my own cleaning products when possible and when puchasing products, use only those that are plant based and free of harmful additives. I find that they also do a better job of cleaning and actually smell better than the old perfumed stand bys I used in the past.
    We have had both a pet and a family member with compromised immunes systems so keeping our home clean and doing if safely is very important.

  152. LaDonna says:

    I currently use vinegar and baking soda to clean most things. I do not think they do a super job so I would love to try this. Thanks.

  153. Michelle says:

    I have been making my own cleaners but I do have some Shaklee products so I would LOVE to have more! We are on a tight budget since I am now staying home with my son and this would really be great to win :)

  154. Amanda Bryie says:

    I’ve started using paper products made by Small Steps. Super cheap at the commissary, and just as good a quality as the bigger brands. I’ve also started using a natural cleaning spray and dish soap. I’ve been really impressed with the quality of the cleaners. (I’ll get the name if anyone asks, I don’t remember off the top of my head.) I’ve also started making my own laundry soap (it’s awesome!), and using vinegar instead of fabric softener. I’ve been really pleased with the greener techniques I’ve been using. They get the job done, still smell nice, and I don’t have to worry about my kids breathing, wearing, or possibly consuming all those chemicals.

  155. Brandi H says:

    I try to use baking soda and vinegar for various cleaning chores around the house, but I still resort to some of my “chemicals” occasionally!

  156. Kristin says:

    I already use some of the commercial green cleaners – like the Green Works by Clorox for multipurpose spray… I also use tea tree oil to clean the bathroom sometimes and use Method Shower Spray (I love the smell) and use the Seventh Generation dish soap. I use Cruncy Clean for the kids laundry and diapers…. But over the past few months I have seen a lot of posts on some of the blogs I read about Shaklee and have really wanted to try it juts haven’t made the plunge to order any…would love a free sample to ‘sell’ me on it.

  157. Diane Z says:

    I always buy or make natural cleaning products but have never tried Shaklee–would love to give it a try for some Spring Cleaning!

  158. Candace says:

    We have recently started using natural products in our home, such as peroxide to fight mold – I’ve been impressed!

  159. Brandy says:

    I have in the past made my own vinegar cleaner but the smell always gave me a migraine! I love my steam cleaners but they are a pain when you just need to clean up something small and quick. Would love to try this! And who can beat that price?

  160. Brandy says:

    Question.. is it antibacterial?

  161. Jayme Coonce says:

    I’ve heard wonderful things about Shaklee, but have never tried it. We usually clean with baking soda & vinegar, but would love to try Shaklee.

  162. Laura Beth says:

    I’ve been trying to go greener with my cleaners, too, but I also have a stockpile of stuff from couponing two years ago that I’m finishing up working through. I’d love to try the Shaklee product!

  163. Donna Chapin says:

    I love cleaning green, but haven’t tried Shaklee yet. I have herd a lot of good things about it, though!

  164. Angela says:

    This will be my first attempt! :)

  165. Carrie Claypool says:

    I have been using Shaklee cleaners for over 10 years! I think my family is healthier b/c they are not exposed to all the chemicals that I used to use to kill germs! We have had less doctor’s visits, and a decrease in allergy and asthma symptoms.

  166. La Yen says:

    (I hope this isn’t a duplicate–my computer is wonky today) I am just starting to green it up with vinegar and using reusable and refillable bottles.

  167. ShanaG says:

    I used to use Chlorox and Lysol all the time before my son was born, but have now switched to water and vinegar. I sometimes buy Seventh Generation because I love the smell :). I’d love to try Shaklee! Much cheaper than SG!

  168. susanmongeau says:

    having two young children i’m looking for more natural cleaners

  169. Kelly says:

    I have started to become more “green” over the last few years. I use only microfiber cloths that I can wash and not throw out, I use a vinegar and water solution whenever possible (most of the time!) and bought a Shark Steam Cleaner for my floors. No cleaner needed, and I can wash the pad and reuse. Not to mention it’s super fast, easy and sanitizes, too!

  170. Donna says:

    I am using vinegar more.

  171. Bobbie says:

    I’m trying to gradually go Green. So far, I am making my own cleaners. I use Vinegar, and I add baking soda to my laundry, for brightening. I am in the process of finding recipes to make more homemade cleaners. I do recycle on a regular basis. But, I would really like to try Shaklee Cleaner.

    Thank you

  172. Amy Tucker says:

    Thank you so much for the opportunity to win/try a new product….we at least new to me :)

  173. erica says:

    I’m working my way into green cleaners, as soon as a chemical bottle gets empty it gets replaced with something homemade.
    I’d love to try this!
