Shaklee Get Clean Household Mini Kit Giveaway

Did you ever look underneath your sink to see what chemicals are in your cleaning products?

Go ahead, take a look now. You'll probably find chemicals like kerosene, phenols, cresol, lye, hydrochloric acid, sulfuric acid, sulfuric acid, petroleum distillates, ammonia, sodium hydroxide, butyl cellosolve, phosphoric acid, formaldehyde, chlorine bleach, morpholine, and phthalates. Who wants all that under your sink and on the surfaces of your home, where your children and pets might find them?

I recently tried products from Shaklee, and I was happy to learn that Shaklee cleaning products have none of those chemicals!

Here's a video about Shaklee's Get Clean products:

I tested out the Shaklee Get Clean Starter Kit, pictured below.

I thought that cleaning my house for Passover would be the perfect test for the Shaklee products. Yes, they're safe, but are they effective?

Turns out, they are! The degreaser, combined with a microfiber rag, cleaned my microwave oven in nothing flat! Cleaning the microwave is one of my least favorite jobs because of all the splatters of sauces that exploded while heating up. With the Shaklee degreaser, I got rid of them super quick!

It also did an amazing job on my teakettle. Since it's situated next to the burner where I do most of my cooking, the stainless steel teakettle gets covered in grease and food splatters. Here's how well it cleaned in with the degreaser, the microfiber rag, and a toothbrush soaked in degreaser to get into the crevices, and less than 10 minutes of work:


(That's me taking the picture on the right, and my middle daughter standing next to me on the left)

I also loved using the Windows and Mirror spray to clean the mirrors in my bathroom, and the All-Purpose spray was great for general kitchen cleanups.

And, I liked that Shaklee products are concentrated. That means it's more frugal - less packaging cost and waste. The products' packages don't fill up landfills, and using each one eliminates 248 pounds of greenhouse gas that would be otherwise be created by similar products. That's the equivalent of planting 10 trees.

I really loved trying out these products.  They were effective and - dare I say - fun to use.

I have straight up bleach underneath my sink right now (with a baby lock on the cupboard, but uuuuugh, I need to get rid of that)! I need a green cleaning makeover because I have three small kids and we need safer, healthier products.


Castal April 10, 2012 at 10:14 PM  

I have bleach along with some various acids (anyone for cyanuric acid derivatives?), and some actually green-ish wipes that are almost gone. And grubby grody pipes....hrm. Maybe I should do something about that.

Alkyl Dimethyl Benzyl Ammonium Chloride - eek! I would like to use more natural cleaning products for the helath of my family and the environment!

Cathie April 11, 2012 at 10:17 AM  

I actually have only cleaning wipes, and dish detergent under my kitchen sink. I have swiffer stuff in my utility room, and I would love to be able to replace THAT, I have tried every incarnation of Swiffer, and I just don't think I like it at all.

Jill Felker April 11, 2012 at 10:30 PM  

I have bleach, ammonia, Raid (for ants)...all sorts of other nasties. Scary stuff

lorialcorn2006 April 12, 2012 at 1:21 PM

emeraldmaz April 13, 2012 at 7:03 PM  

Under my sink is just a few extra dog dishes... the only cleanser in there is the dish soap :)

Diana Lane Utley April 13, 2012 at 9:56 PM  

I found a lot of those chemicals in my cleaning products. Wow.


GoodnessGraces April 13, 2012 at 11:02 PM  

I found bleach. I have a 2 yr old and really want to make sure my house is free of bad chemicals.

lokigsd April 13, 2012 at 11:05 PM  

Believe it or not - I don't have any "cleaners" under my sink.... just pots & pans.

Alicia April 14, 2012 at 9:07 AM  

I've got some bleach, and some toilet bowl cleaner. I just want to use non-toxic products to clean my home!

Kathy (K-Pom) April 14, 2012 at 9:28 AM  

Pots and pans are under our sink, but I dug deeper and found from ugly looking j-clothes, and once I got past those I found our emergency fire extingusher. By this time, I was getting really brave and kept going, next up was petrified sponges - but I don't think they started off green, but they sure ended that way!!

Leah S,  April 14, 2012 at 11:06 AM  

I don't oftne look under the sink but yes I did find cleaners full of the junk

intensev5 April 14, 2012 at 11:33 AM  

None of my cleaning products are GREEN -- this has got to change!!! Thanks for the chance to win this.

Maryea April 14, 2012 at 11:42 AM  

Yes I found some of those ingredients under my sink. I'd love to try safer products that also work well.
Thank you for this opportunity.

Anonymous,  April 14, 2012 at 2:29 PM  

I have a few "scary" things in the cleaning closet and would like to try more green products.

Rachel McGuire April 14, 2012 at 10:56 PM  

long story short. I just moved in with my boyfriend whom thought he was "green" but was so very far from it. I found every known harmful chemical possible in his cabinets. I need serious help to turn him around.

AlaskanWolfGodess April 14, 2012 at 11:56 PM  

I have bleach, windex, and clorox and I need a cleaning product makeover!

Tegan April 29, 2012 at 7:56 PM  

I (Tegan) found bleach and lots of acids in my cleaners. With my cats getting into everything I am not only worried about my health but theirs, which is why i need to get more green!

I've trashed many of my chemical cleaners because they were irritating me, but there's still some bleach under there. I need a cleaning supply makeover, because I currently have no cleaners!

CELINEXOXO May 2, 2012 at 11:25 AM  


Jennifer May 2, 2012 at 12:25 PM  

All sorts of things that can't be pronounced. WARNING Also, the floor cleaners & to think that your feet are where you absorb all that & we are all barefoot in here. Need a safe alternative

Andrea B May 2, 2012 at 1:37 PM  

I have chlorine bleach, ammonia, and sulfamic acid. I need green cleaners, because we're trying for a baby, and I read chlorine bleach may cause birth defects.

Holly S. May 3, 2012 at 1:07 PM  

I have a good deal of these chemicals under my sink. I would love to find effective cleaners that are also safe for my kids and my dog! I make them leave the room when I clean and it's hard to keep an eye on the little one. Thanks for the giveaway; I would love to try these.

Unknown May 3, 2012 at 2:59 PM  

i have bleach most under my sink! i would love to try natural cleaners to try and make my home a healthier place. i have a one year old daughter and hope to have more children one day. i would just like to use healthy cleaners for that reason.

Amy Dalrymple May 3, 2012 at 6:55 PM  

I have bleach and ammonia under my sink... definitely not safe for the pets in my house.

Unknown May 3, 2012 at 7:29 PM  

I don't keep them under my sink :-) but in the cabinet above my washer there was bleach and many other things I can't remember how to spell. :-)

Actually, under my kitchen sink are all our soda cans, but there's also dish soap or at least there was until my husband used it. I have five animals and a son and would like to use "green" products. kekagel(at)yahoo.com

Teresa Thompson May 3, 2012 at 10:46 PM  

There are pots and pans under my sink. Unfortunately i have no green cleaners.

Allisha Gold May 3, 2012 at 11:10 PM  

We have a product with ammonia in it. Not too many other things. I need a makeover so that I have fewer unsafe items in my house.
Thank you!
