Greening the Cleaning® Review and Giveaway!

    Exposure to toxic chemicals is a concern that all parents have when it comes to choosing cleaning products to use around their home and to expose their family members to.  We definitely share those concerns in our home and pay very close attention to the chemicals found in the household cleaning products that we use around the house.     Women who work at home have a 54% higher death rate from cancer than those women who work away from home.  Studies show that toxic chemicals found in common household products are to blame for these statistics.  GTC® products are derived from renewable natural resources like plants and fruits so they are safe to use in your home and around your family.     For the purposes of this review, we had the opportunity to try out the GTC® Hand Dish Liquid, Laundry Liquid, All Purpose Cleaner, Glass Cleaner, and Cream Cleanser.  The first thing I did when I opened the box of products is to take all their caps off to smell the different cleaners.  It was … [Read more...]

Original Simple Green Review

Having children has definitely made me more aware about the kinds of products that I bring into my home and the impact that using them is having on the environment.  It is especially important that the cleaning products that I buy be safe to use around my boys while at the same time be cost efficient and fit into my budget.  That is why I jumped at the chance to test and review Original Concentrated Simple Green All-Purpose Cleaner.  I have heard so many great things about this cleaner from other mothers and I wanted to try it out for myself. I received a 32 oz. bottle of Original Concentrated Simple Green All-Purpose Cleaner, a dilution spray bottle, and a use and dilution guide.  It was shocking to see how far a 32 oz. bottle would go in keeping up with general household cleaning.  Depending on your cleaning needs, you can dilute the cleaner with water to tackle heavy cleaning and light cleaning jobs, laundry, and treat stains on clothing.  The cleaning solution has a fresh scent … [Read more...]
