The Green Glove
By Mary Beth Gonzalez, iVillage.com
My mother is coming to visit. I love my Mom. I love her abundant ideas for how I can improve my home, my job, my life. I love them so much that I’ve spent the last few days re-evaluating everything, stressing out and improving as much as I can, in advance, so I can be ah…flawless.
Mom has a bionic eye for dust bunnies and smeared glass, so the main focus today (and more tomorrow when the real cleaning lady comes) is deep cleaning my home. Thank God for Shaklee!
After trying many different eco-friendly green cleaning products over the years, I switched to Shaklee green cleaning products about 6 months ago and will never switch again. It was such a relief to find a line of products that are truly natural, eco-friendly, non-toxic, plus they are easy to buy online and they really clean well.
Friends tried to steer me towards simple homemade cleaning concoctions of vinegar and lemon juice, but I found that they didn’t work well on tough cleaning chores and left a lemony scent. I think clean should smell clean – like nothing. Just fresh air.
Shaklee’s Get Clean Starter Kit includes everything you can possibly need to clean every aspect of your home. Most of the products are highly concentrated, and the kit provides lots of mixing bottles. Their website states that the Starter Kit is equivalent to $3400 worth of standard cleaning products! I believe it, since in 6 months the only products I’ve had to re-order have been the laundry soap, dishwasher powder and dishwashing liquid.
So I need to cut this short and go back to washing the base boards, vacuuming the lamp shades, and polishing my brass guest bed, so by tomorrow night I’ll be ready. Except this time, Mom and her inspection glove will find my green clean home flawless.
