When I was first approached by a friend asking if I was interested in hearing about Green Cleaners, I had two (negative) thoughts:
1. I don’t care about cleaning, I hate cleaning, and I buy the good stuff from Target…
2. It seems complicated…

I politely (I hope) said that I was not interested. It wasn’t until another year went by when I changed my tune. The good news is, my friend asking me the question, made me pay attention to the topic. After that, it seemed like everything I read was about household cleaners, home environment, all the toxins we absorb, etc.

I ended up not only switching cleaners to a non toxic brand, I started selling them! I love them so much it is my goal to get them in every home that I can!

If you’re still on the fence about modern toxins and chemicals, it is time to get off the fence. Doesn’t your butt hurt? Here are my candid thoughts. This is a 3 min video I made today explaining my viewpoint.

Also, I have a lovely business partner that wrote a lovely blog on the topic already. No point in re-writing it… Check it out here.

So is it complicated? Yes and no. The switching of products couldn’t be easier. We sell a kit that has everything you need to clean (including the accessories). And it’s inexpensive and will last you ages!

The hardest part is disposing of the old, toxic ones.

BUT- I have a solution for that as well! Technically, two solutions.

1. For local peeps, friends, fam- I am hosting a Get Clean Party on May 22 at 1pm at my house. Come hear about why you should switch, get a quick tutorial of Shaklee cleaners, AND I will take ALL your old cleaners for disposal! That’s right, I will do the dirty work.
2. If you’re not local, and/or can’t come that day, you likely have a local resource. Google hazardous waste material and your location or check out the EPA’s website for info. Here is a link that might help.

Many of the cleaning products American’s use daily are lung irritants and some of the most common causes of household accidents. Does it make sense to clean a toilet with gloves on, and then let your child sit on that seat 5 mins. later? You shouldn’t need a hazmat suit to clean your home. Switch to organic, green cleaners that actually work!

Ever since starting with Shaklee vitamins, I feel like I need to shout it from the rooftops! I have talked to anyone that will listen to me simply because I feel like the world NEEDS to know what healthy can feel like. But, today I am coming down from the roof top, stepping off my soap box, and putting down the mega phone. I am only going to talk about the everyday products that you are all already purchasing, and showing you the Shaklee alternative.

Why would you want to switch? Well, there are lots of reasons but the big ones are:

1. Shaklee is always safe: We are proud to be non-toxic! The products don’t give off harmful fumes, they are safe to be used around children and pets. I WISH I knew about this stuff when I was wiping down high chairs and had babies crawling on the floor and putting everything in their mouths!

2. Shaklee is always green: Shaklee was the first in the world (!) to become climate neutral. That means, if you factor in everything- corporate headquarters, shipping, packaging, etc.- they leave no carbon footprint. The cleaners are biodegrable, recyclable, concentrated to save on packaging, etc. They are no joke!

3. Shaklee will save you money: This one might surprise people. Some of you have looked at the prices and there might have been a little sticker shock. But, what you need to factor in is how long this stuff will last. A bottle of basic H2 costs $12 for non-members and will last the average person a year. It completely replaces all purpose cleaner, floor cleaner, and window cleaner (and more) for a whole year! For $12 bucks!

4. Shaklee always works: Some of you might be thinking- I don’t care how good it is for the planet if it doesn’t work as well as my…. tide or windex or whatever you are using. The crazy thing is that it does work as well. I actually prefer these cleaners and other beauty products to everything I have ever used.

All Purpose Cleaner and Window Cleaner:
I already mentioned the basic H2 cleaner. It is magical and it does everything. It saves you a ton of money. It’s a no brainer. It is so concentrated that 2 drops is all it takes to make a 16oz bottle of window cleaner.

Laundry Products:
This was the one that I was most skeptical of. I loved my old stuff. I loved getting lavender scented dryer sheets and the fabric softener with the cute bear. But, the more I read about how bad those are for your home environment, the more willing I was to give the Shaklee stuff a shot. They have a liquid or powder detergent, a fabric softener, a stain booster, and dryer sheets (that can be recycled after you use them (!). I now use these products exclusively. They last forever and my clothes are truly clean and fresh smelling.

Dish and Hand:
The dishwasher detergent was the first time I thought- they have got to be kidding me! It not only cleaned my dishes, it cleaned my dishwasher! I wish I would have gotten a before/after pic but I never thought in a million years it would clean my old skuzzy dishwasher. This stuff lasts forever too! I opened this bag on 11/13/14 and it is still going strong today 2/13/15. We have a family of 4 and run our dishwasher every.single.day. They also make an amazing dish soap for the sink and a great regular hand wash soap.

Shower:
I use the Prosante Shampoo and Conditioner for my hair and the Enfuselle body wash and face wash for my skin. Again, it’s just another way to get the excess chemicals and harmful ingredients out of our lives. And the teeniest bit goes a long way, you only need a dab.

Skin care:
I also use the Enfuselle moisturizers and Shaklee antiperspirant cream. Our skin is the largest organ in our body and probably the organ we abuse the most (besides our livers). The C and E repair cream in the picture makes your skin feel like silk. It’s insane.

I spent months slowly replacing all of my old products. Whenever I would run out of something, I would just replace it with the Shaklee version. So this didn’t happen over night. And now, to save money, I just do a quick inventory at the end of the month. I see what I am going to need and order it all at once to save money on shipping.
