Eco- Friendly Cleaning products that really work: Better Life Giveaway

Monday, March 1, 2010
With all the cleaning products claiming to be "Green" that have been popping up all over the place the last few years, it is hard to know what is really green and what really works. I have had the chance to try out the Better Life’s starter kit over the past couple weeks; Which includes four great eco-friendly cleaning products, loofah sponges and an euro sponge ... I am truly impressed. Not only are they green they actually work.


Since none of their products contain any sulfates, ethoxylates, fragrances, dyes, glycol ethers or alcohols there is no need to worry about breathing in harmful chemicals as we clean and it is safe for the kids to get into the action.



You may have heard me complain a time or two that I am so busy between taking care of my children, working and trying to keep up with my blogging. In all honesty, I have falling short in the house cleaning department as of late... I barely have time to shower much less clean one. 

The Clary Sage and Citrus whatEVER! Spray Cleaner is great because I can use it on almost anything. I have used it all over from my kitchen, bathroom and even inside my car... and it has cleaned everything that I have thrown at it. The scent is very pleasent and light not overpowering at all unlike most cleaners.


Another product that I really like is Simply Floored,  It works great removing all the nastiness from my laminate floors without having to get on my hands and knees to scrub the gunk by hand. I have always hated the smell of most floor cleaners, the strong scents make me sick and give me migranes. Simply Floored is unscented so I can have a clean floor without the headache.. literally.


We used the I Can See Clearly, WOW! window cleaner on the windsheild of both of our vehicles and it has clearly made a difference. Before it was streaked and the glare from oncoming traffic while driving at night was unbearable, now we can actually see and without the glare.


The last product that we recieved was Even the Kitchen sink it is a naturally powerful gentle cleaning scrubber works that works on tubs, tile and grout, toilet bowls, shower doors, ceramic, stovetops, glass cooktops, stainless steel sinks, porcelain, enamel, stone, cultured marble, non-polished solid countertops, & laminate. I have not really used this product but my husband  has used it to clean the toilet and bathroom sink. I can not really comment on the ease of use myself but I can say that their is no residue left behind and our toilet looks almost like new.


I really really love the collapsible 6 compartment cleaning caddy that the products arrived in as well, it makes lugging the products around so much easier and would be perfect for someone who cleans houses for a living. If I had the money I would buy one for everyone I know!














Well I may not be able to buy one for everyone I know... However, thanks to Jim from Better life I will have the opportunity to give one away to one of you!

Ethoxyates are a class of synthetic (based on petroleum), surfactants used in a wide variety of detergents, disinfectants and household cleaners. They are also used in disposable diapers, wipes, and spermicides. These chemicals get between dirt and surfaces (like a kitchen counter, fabric or even human skin) allowing water to more easily wash away dirt. Unfortunately, these surfactants can be hazardous to both you and the environment.
