The amount of cleaner it made
I gave this product a good run for its money on two of the hardest to keep clean surfaces in my house: my kitchen table and my stovetop. With two young children, my beautiful glass top table is almost impossible to keep clean. I hate using the typical ammonia laden products to clean it as they give me a headache. So here is my dirty table (notice the lovely streak of food my 3 year old smeared across it!):
Here is the table after the Shaklee Glass Cleaner:
Next up was the All-Purpose Cleaner on a very dirty and greasy stovetop. Before Basic H2:
After Basic H2:
Again, this wasn't a spray and wipe - it needed some elbow grease in the really gross areas. There was one spot next to a burner that something turned into a gooey mess, the Basic H2 All Purpose struggled and I gave into one of my harsh chemicals to get it off (none of my normal cleaners could do it either - I tried).
So how is this cleaner green? This is what the literature provided by Shaklee claims:
- Biodegradable surfactants
- Sustainable ingredients from natural sources
- No volatile organic cleaning compounds
- No phosphates
- Recyclable packaging
- One 16 oz. bottle of Basic H2 concentrate makes 48 gallons of cleaner
- Economical - less than 1 cent per 16 oz. bottle as a window cleaner, 3 cents per bottle as all purpose cleaner
Overall, I'm happy with this cleaner and would consider buying it. If you'd like to try it yourself, or check out the other products they offer, visit Chrissy at the Spectrum Wellness website.
