Shaklee Love

*Disclaimer: I was not paid or perked to share my opinion on these Shaklee products. These are just my honest opinions on creating a healthier home.*

I love Shaklee products. I just do. There are a million and one reasons why, but maybe I can come up with a few that explain my captivation by these products. 

First things first --- These are the Shaklee products I currently use and why I use them.

Basic H Organic Super Cleaning Concentrate


This stuff is pretty much the best thing ever created. It's super concentrated, so a 16 ounce bottle can make up to 48 GALLONS worth of cleaning products for your entire home!  I love that I can use one product (just add water) to clean my entire home. AND I don't have to worry about the nasty chemical smell or setting food on my counters to avoid filmy cleaners because all Shaklee products are non-toxic!

Basic H is also amazing because it can be used by itself (remove stains, clean muddy shoes, erase crayon from the wall, etc.) but it's so concentrated that you can dilute it with water in different amounts for different purposes around your home! Shaklee makes 3 spray bottles (Windows, Degreaser, All-Purpose) already labeled with it's purpose and directions for diluting so that you never have to worry about leaving behind residue or ruining your furnishings because you've used too much.

Germ Off Disinfecting Wipes

I love these wipes. Not only are they fragrance-free, but they don't leave behind sticky residue like Clorox's disinfecting wipes.

Example: A few weekends ago, my friend Cortney and I made some drinks and some Amaretto spilled on the counter. First, I wiped it up with a paper towel. Then I pulled out the Clorox wipes (thinking they'd be a little more high-power than Germ Off) and wiped down the counter. It was STILL sticky with chemicals and liqueur 5 minutes later! Needless to say, I whipped out my Germ Off wipes and they did the trick. No more sticky counters for me!

I mostly use my Germ Off wipes to clean the toilet (2 wipes will clean the entire john!) and around the ledges on the tub. For everything else I use my Basic H concoctions and a few paper towels.

Scour Off Heavy Duty Paste

I must confess, I haven't actually used my Scour Off yet! And I'm even more ashamed to say that I FORGOT I had it and when I went to clean our oven last week I bought...Easy Off. Worst. Idea. Ever. If you don't know what Easy Off is, good for you. It's the worst product ever made. You have to wear rubber gloves when you use it (first sign of danger!) and when I sprayed it I literally could not breathe without choking. Josh and I had to open every window and leave the apartment. That's how toxic this stuff is to your body. Our lungs were literally burning for a few hours afterward and I regretted ever spending $6 on it.

My friend, Moyra suggested that I use my Scour Off next time I clean the oven and I can't wait to do so. Wanna know why?

"Here’s an exclusive scouring cleanser that sets a new standard. It’s a paste, so it doesn’t form dust clouds. It cleans stuck-on messes. It even cleans burnt-on food in your oven. And it doesn’t burn off your nose hairs in the process." - Shaklee's website
