Shaklee review and Giveaway!!!

**This giveaway is closed**

Bonnie from House of Grace sent me a sample of
Shaklee's Basic H2 Organic Super Cleaning Concentrate to try out.

If you have read my blog for more than a minute you know that I am a fan of natural,
non-toxic cleaning and use vinegar, lemon and baking soda to clean my home.

I found this on their website:
Our mission at Shaklee is to provide a healthier life for everyone and a better life for anyone. We do it by making natural products that are so exceptional, you just have to tell your friends. Every product that goes into every Shaklee bottle is designed to improve health, work without compromise, and be gentle on the planet.

When you pick Shaklee, you will know three things to be true.
It is always safe. It always works. And it is always green.
Needless to say I was pretty stoked to give this stuff a try!!!

This is what came in the mail.

And this is what was inside that little package...can you BELIEVE that?
It's so tiny!

I got my dollar store spray bottles out and followed the directions.

The sample made a bottle of window cleaner and an all purpose cleaner.
All from that tiny little vial and some water.
Now that's some crazy concentrated stuff!!!

Okay, so let's see what this stuff can do, shall we?

Here is my fingerprint covered fridge before.

Here is a close up of the goo that my son deposits daily.

And here is the fridge after cleaning it with the Basic H2.
So clean and shiny!

It helped quite a bit with the hard water stains on the water dispenser too.
From what I have seen I think Shaklee's Get Clean Scour Off 
would probably finish up this job;)

Here's the T.V, covered with cracker goo, fingerprints
and lick marks from the toddler and the dog:
T.V. Before.

 I sprayed on the Basic H2 window cleaner, wiped it down...
And here is the AFTER!
Shiny and Goo-less.

Okay, so I saved the grossest one for last. Don't look Anna! ;)
This is the sink in the master bathroom:
I can't believe I posted gross!

 I sprayed it with Basic H2 and easily wiped away the grime.
Ahhhh, so clean!

I must say that I am impressed.

Wanna give this stuff a try yourself?

Already a follower. I dread cleaning my room at work. Because it is for young kids I'm scared to use anything more heavy duty than soap+water, but that just doesn't get the job done! I think this product would bring me a little peace-of mind.

I want to try this stuff so bad. I have hard water, and my toilets are disgusting. I scrub with a toothbrush, and they are still awful. I need some help. Love your blog, the tips, and the great stuff you make. Keep posting.
