My favorite cleaning product ever & GIVEAWAY!!

Ok, cleaning is definitely not on my list of favorite things to do. But I LOVE cleaning with my favorite product ever - Basic H2 Organic Super Cleaning Concentrate!! I use Basic H2 for everything and have been for as long as I can remember. Basic H2 is ultra concentrated which helps keep the cost down and will last for a long time. This one 16 oz bottle of Basic H2 concentrate equals the cleaning uses of 5,824 bottles of 26 oz Windex. Isn't that amazing?! And the best part...this all purpose non-toxic cleaner is super safe, really powerful and extremely affordable I can make a gallon of general purpose cleaner with Basic H2 for only 21 cents! Yes, that's 21 CENTS!!! You can use Basic H2 on any washable surface - washing walls, appliances, furniture, floors, bbq grills, cars...you name it!


For all-purpose cleaning: 
Add 1/4 tsp. Basic H2 to 16 oz. of water. 
For windows and mirrors: 
Add 1-2 drops of Basic H2 to 16 oz. of water. 
For degreasingAdd 1 1/2 tsp. Basic H2 to 16 oz. of water. For bigger jobs, add 2 oz Basic H2 to 1 gallon of water.



I use Basic H2 with the Get Clean Spray Bottles.  Each bottle is labeled with instructions for mixing Basic H2 for All Purpose Cleaning, Glass Cleaning and Degreasing. I also use these washable microfiber cloths for a streak-free clean. 


Did you know that common household cleaners give off fumes that have been linked to increased risk of asthma in children? Rates in children under the age of five have increased more than 160% from 1980-1994! A few years ago, Oprah invited Roger and Sloan Barnett (Shaklee's CEO) to share their story of how their son ended up in the hospital with severe asthma due to exposure of toxins from conventional cleaning products. (Click on the video below) They researched many natural cleaners and chose to switch to Shaklee's Get Clean products. Basic H2 is now one of Oprah's "favorite things". It is also the chosen product to clean the entire White House!! 




Here are a few shocking facts:
  • Over 90% of poison exposures happen at homeIn 2005, 218,316 reported poison exposures were from household cleaning products.
  • Organic pollutants, found in many common cleaners and even air fresheners, are 2 to 5 times higher inside your home than out.
  • A person who spends 15 minutes cleaning scale off shower walls could inhale three times the "acute one-hour exposure limit" for glycol ether-containing products set by the California Office of Environmental Health Hazard Assessment.
  • 81,000 CHEMICALS REGISTERED WITH THE EPA IN THE LAST 30 YEARS, and fewer than 20% have been tested for toxicity!
  • Common bleach is the #1 household chemical involved in poisoning. Degreasers may contain petroleum distillates, which can damage lung tissues. Glass Cleaners may contain ammonia. These fumes can irritate the skin, eyes, and respiratory system. Oven Cleaners can be one of the most dangerous cleaning products causing severe damage to eyes, skin, mouth, and throat. Toilet Bowl Cleaners can be harmful just by breathing the fumes—and fatal if swallowed.
How safe is your home? Go to your cupboard right now. Pick a cleaner, any cleaner. Does it contain sodium hydroxide, phenol, ammonia or formaldehyde? These are toxic and dangerous! Instead of cleaning your home, these chemicals are harming your family's health. Are you ready to make the switch to natural non-toxic cleaners?

  6. My living room could use a basic cleaning. Dusting, for one. And then there is the problem of spots on the carpet! But I'm sensitive to chemicals, so the spots stay until I find something natural to get them out.
    Thanks,
