350 IHeart: Shaklee and a Giveaway!

 **  Attention:  This Giveaway has since ended.  Thanks everyone for participating!!  The winner will be contacted via email **  

Many of you know one of my blogger bff's {and awesome IHeart Organizing sponsor!} Toni, from A bowl full of lemons.  If you don't, you really should, because her blog is AMAZING!  So much organizing eye candy, I honestly feel like her blog, is my second home!

And today, her and I are partnering up!  She gave me the opportunity to give her Shaklee products a try so I could share my experience with you!

I was actually uber giddy that I was able to give the Basic H2 a whirl.  I had been eying it up for quite awhile now.  Here is why:

Organic Super Cleaning!  YES PLEASE!  Many of you that have been following me for awhile know that I try to use products good for both the earth AND my family.  That's what Shaklee is all about!  But here is where is gets REALLY great, beyond the typical earth friendly cleaner.

This bottle is uber concentrated.  Meaning that you mix it with some water to create your cleaners... different amounts of concentrate to water portions to make a degreaser, an all purpose cleaner and a window cleaner!

And it's SO easy!  The bottle tells you exactly how to mix it!

It was almost laughable when I read the water to concentrate ratio.  That's right, I put 2 drops of concentrate into a spray bottle of water.  2 DROPS!  No way is that gonna work.... right?!  How could it?!  That's like nothing!  Little did I know my friends, this stuff is a miracle cleaning solution!

Check out this stat right on the bottle....

48 gallons of cleaner from one bottle?!  WAHOO!!!!  I instantly felt spoiled!

But again, does it work?  Well, I couldn't wait to give it a try on one of my weekly messes...

Forgive me for what you are about to see, but it doesn't take much before my microwave looks like a crime scene....

So I sprayed a couple of squirts of the natural degreaser formula, let it sit for a couple of minutes, and wiped it down with a damp rag....

Cleaning the microwave has never been so easy and quick.  And I know that what I used is completely SAFE!  Love that feeling!

So I couldn't wait to do more.  I did my counters, appliance fronts and table with the all purpose cleaner, which left ZERO streaks!  And then I tackled my patio door.  Which had been glarred with dog nose and slobber... no problem for the Shaklee glass cleaner though!

The cleaning products won me over... they are easy to make, clean amazingly well, are safe for my family and our earth and one bottle can keep me stocked up for SUCH a long time!

Into the cleaning caddy they went!

LOVE!  To see even more information on this wonder product and see a jaw dropping price chart, check out Toni's post here.

Want some good news!?!  Toni is giving away 10 samples of Basic H2 {or what I call, super cleaner!}

  1. I heart a clean home!

    Whenever I need to scrub some tough stains or dirt off a sink or bathtub, I grab my baking soda and go to town!

    These products do sound intriguing...I've had trouble finding a natural window cleaner that works well.

  2. What a great giveaway!

    I don't really consider cleaning my forte, but my mom taught me that vinegar and water does just fine for cleaning the floors...and other things!

  3. I Heart a Clean Home!

    Microfiber cloths are great for cleaning!

    hgrimsley at gmail dot com

  4. IHeart a Clean Home


    I love cleaning with Baking soda or vinegar :)

  5. IHeart a Clean Home! I have been dying to try this stuff..Doing a load of laundry a day to stay on top of my mountain


  6. IHeart a Clean Home - I love to put a bowl of water in the microwave - nuke it for a little bit and let it sit in there - softens everything up and I can just wash it out with a wet washcloth as I am finishing up dishes :)

    davinson at sio dot midco dot com

  7. Your experiment reminded me of my own microwaving trick. For tough food stains, simply microwave a cup of water on High for a few minutes to moisten and loosen food. It comes right off!


  8. IHeart a Clean Home!

    I really want to try the Shaklee products! I want to switch over but I wanted to try it first.


  9. IHeart a Clean Home!! I have seen Shaklee products all over the blog world, but haven't had a chance to try them yet. Being 5 months pregnant, I need to get ready for baby with SAFE cleaning products & would love to try these.


  10. I Heart a Clean Home! I made a list of things that needs to get cleaned every week and I check them off as I get them done throughout the week--that way I know nothing is getting neglected!

  11. IHeart a Clean Home!

    I use baking soda for EVERYTHING. Toilets, scrubbing the kitchen sink, everything. It's awesome.

  12. IHeart a clean home!

    A great tip to get soap scum off of shower glass - spray with heated white vinegar and then rub with a 50/50 mix of salt and baking soda. Spray once more with the vinegar and then wipe clean with water. Works great!


  13. IHeart a Clean Home! I can't really think of any cleaning tips. I just try to keep on top of things daily so it doesn't turn into a disaster!

  14. IHeart a clean home!

    I use a carpet rake to fluff up my carpet when it gets matted down - it revives the carpet and also makes it easier for the vacuum to suck up the dirt!

    Thanks for the great giveaway!

  15. I Heart a clean home!!!


  16. IHeart a Clean Home!

    cleaning tip: let your little kids help - they enjoy it, and practice makes perfect :)


  17. IHeart a clean home! I use baby wipes for quick clean up of spills and to clean off the baseboards. I don't even have a baby anymore to change ;)

  18. This comment has been removed by the author.

  19. IHeart a clean home! I've been dying to try this stuff since my usual brand of natural cleaner (though it smells amazing) is extremely expensive and doesn't last long. I'd love to try this!
    Jennifer B.


  20. I heart a clean home!

    I try to do a load of laundry a day. I start the load when I get up, my husband transfers it to the dryer when the wash cycle is done, and I fold it on my lunch break!

  21. I Heart a Clean Home!

    My fav tip is to put a lemon in the garbage disposal to freshen it up!

  22. IHeart a clean home!


  23. IHeart a Clean Home! I have been wanting to try Shaklee products for awhile. When my kids were in preschool they brought home a spray bottle of cleaner (vinegar and water) with the recipe on it. Worked great so that's what I have been using ever since.

  24. I Heart A Clean Home!!

    My cleaning tip- when my sister and I were young and had an argument, my mom made us wash windows. One of us inside and one outside. We had to wash the same window at the same time so we had to stare at each other! My mom had cleaned windows and we usually forgot about the argument! I can't wait to try this trick on my kids!


    My favorite cleaning trick is to invite guests over periodically! It makes my husband and I spiff up the house in no time flat and we get the bonus of enjoying good company AND a clean and organized home =)

    Jenn @ Peas & Crayons

  26. I ♥ a clean home! Microfiber clothes are a favorite for cleaning


  27. Iheart a clean home!

  28. IHeart a Clean Home

    My cleaning tip is that I never leave a room empty handed. Things constantly need to be taken to other rooms or put in a hamper so why not take these things with you on your way.


  29. I Heart a Clean Home!

    My cleaning tip is for towels or dish clothes that get that mildewy smell. Throw them in the washer with 1-2 cups of vinegar and hot water then rewash them with regular detergent (without drying in between). Throw them in the dryer and they smell so fresh!

  30. IHeart a clean home!!

    This product sounds amazing! I have three little kids, and this would make me actually want to use cleaning products and not worry. My cleaning tip is to make it a game with the kids. inkomite at gmail.com

  31. IHeart a clean home!

    So excited for this chance, I have been eyeing it for a while now and it would be great to give it a try.


  32. i heart a clean home!! I like to use the hose attachment on the vacuum cleaner for everything, including baseboards & window sills- then you don't have to bend over and scrub!

    (rungirlrunn at gmail)

  33. IHeart a Clean Home.

    I love my bissell steam mop to get my floors clean.


  34. IHeart a clean home!!

    I would love to try this product! My daughter is president of her high school environmental club and she is always encouraging me to try new products that are safer for our environment!


  35. "IHeart a Clean Home!" I use fresh lemon to clean just about everything!


  36. I heart a clean home!


  37. Iheart a clean home!

    I have been drooling over the shaklee products for weeks and am soo excited about this giveaway!

    Sarahram10 at gmail dot com

  38. I heart a clean home!!!!!!

    My favorite cleaning tip for the microwave is to cut up a lemon and nuke it for about 3 minutes. Everything wipes out easy and is smells amazing. I then take the nuked lemon wegdes and send them down the garbage disposal. It then smells great too!


  39. Iheart a clean home! I use vinegar and water on just about everything. I also use it as a fabric softener. My hubby's work clothes can get pretty nasty and store bought fabric softener is a no-no for them, but vinegar helps get them clean and smell nice. I'm interested in shaklee products because there are just some messes than vinegar won't take care of easily but I don't want to use harsh chemicals around my daughter.

  40. lheart a clean home!

    Oh man, I don't have any cleaning secrets really. I'm still learning I guess!


  41. "IHeart a Clean Home!"
    My motto is clean as you go and then there is les s work in the long run

  42. I heart a clean home!!!!!!
    I use vinegar and water to clean my floors.

  43. iheart a clean home! I try to clean one room or item per night after kids are in bed. It helps free the early evenings & weekends for the kiddos!

  44. IHeart a clean home!

    I like to use coffee filters for cleaning my windows... no streaks & no fibers left behind.

  45. I heart a clean home! That's for sure! My little cleaning tip is to just do it. I find that it really doesn't take nearly as long as I thought the task was once I finally do it. It takes mere minutes to clean out the toilet or wash out the sink or do a load of dishes. If I spent half the time cleaning as I did dreading it, I could do the job and then be done with it! :) mrscresswell@hotmail.com

  46. I heart a clean home! I no longer use softener in my laundry. 1 oz of white vinegar does the trick...and it last forever!

  47. IHeart a Clean Home!

    I try to never leave a room empty handed. These products sound great and I would love to try them.


  48. i heart a clean home!

    i wipe down my bathroom every morning (with three boys it needs it!)... this prevents from having a real mess if anyone comes over and needs to potty ;)


  49. Iheart a clean home....My best tip is to clean the kids bath (vanity, tub, etc....not the tub of course) while they are taking a bath....two jobs done at once!

  50. I heart a clean home!

    I don't really have a tip but I heart my bissel steam mop. No chemicals and it leaves my floors clean and sanitized. LOVE!


  51. IHeart a Clean Home.

    I'm not the greatest at cleaning but maybe these products will help inspire me.

    laurenwells18 at gmail dot com


    A tip that I can think of off the top of my head is to put a mug of water in the microwave and turn it on for a minute or two to create some steam...it helps to moisten the "crud" in there and make it easy to wipe up.



  53. IHeart a Clean Home!

    I like to put a wet paper towel in the microwave for a few seconds to loosen up "stuff".

    Thank you!!!


  54. I Heart a Clean Home!


  55. iHeart a Clean Home!!
    I like to have a daily to do list through the week so I can have family fun on weekends!
    The results with these products look amazing, and there are some specific areas in my home I'd love to try them with!

  56. IHeart a Clean Home!

    I REALLY want to try Shaklee! :)


  57. iheart a clean home!

    I've been looking for a safe cleaner for my home - I hate using the strong chemical-filled stuff.

    My best cleaning tip - clean it as soon as it gets dirty! (I try to do this)


  58. iheart a clean home!

    My best cleaning tip is to use old cloth diapers as rags, love them for dusters, window wipes, mopping up spills, anything a paper towel can be used for, and hen you just throw 'em in the wash and tada! Cheap and reusable, my two favourite things.
    An a bonus tip - I put my wood cuttings boards in the microwave for a minute or two after washing them to kill any left over gunkies that are hiding in the wood.


  59. I heart a clean home....always!

    My best tip is setting the timer for my kids and turning up the music! They clean to the song, and always want to beat the song! It usually takes 2 songs for the playroom to get picked up! Then I come in the vacuum!

  60. IHeart a Clean Home!

    I don't have any tricks to tips or favorite go-to items... because I hate cleaning. I do it only out of necessity :)


  61. IHeart a Clean Home!

    This is great because I just emailed Shaklee the other day asking for samples! I love to use a mixture of baking soda and dish soap to make a soft scrub for my tub. It works wonders!


  62. IHeart a Clean Home! (even though it's pretty much never clean all at once, ha!)

    My biggest aha for cleaning was purchasing a stack of cheapo rag towels from Sams to use instead of paper towels.
    Mrs. G (geauxmrsg at gmail dot com)

  63. I Heart A Clean Home!!!
    Pour vinegar in a plastic bag, put over your shower head, tape around the bag and leave for 24 hours.....for a clean shower head, removes any build up and allows the water to flow freely.

  64. I Heart a Clean Home!

    I usually put a squirt of castille soap in a ceramic mug, fill with water, and microwave for 2 1/2 minutes. Just wipe with a damp sponge!

  65. IHeart a Clean Home!

    I love Clorox wipes. I wipe something down almost everyday. They help me keep on top of the bathroom and kitchen between cleaning days.


  66. IHeart a clean home! Is this the stuff you can use on wood floors? I'm always looking for something good for my wood. My favorite cleaning tip is actually for microwaves and disposals. Slice a lemon in half float it in a bowl of water in nuke it for 3 -5 minutes, wipe all grease and goo out of microwave, run water with lemon down disposal for a clean smelling disposal and microwave!

  67. I heart a clean home! :-)

    My favorite cleaning tip is wierd: newspapers for windows. No streaks whatsoever...throw them in the recycling bin when they're dried out again (I throw them in a box in the garage...on recycling day, I throw them out.) Used to think this was whack, right? Then tried it, and can actually tell if my hubs or child clean with something other than newspaper! I use it on mirrors, too! You won't BELIEVE it!

  68. IHeart a clean home!!

    I am dying to try some of this. I have read such great reviews and there is never anything negative.

    My favorite cleaning item: the magic eraser!! Seriously that thing has saved more walls in our house than anything else.

  69. I heart a clean Home!!

    Cleaning tip!? -LOVE Microfiber cloths, for EVERTYTHING. I have one designated for my multipurpose surface cleaner, and one for dusting spray/furniture polish. So much better than paper towels...

  70. I heart a clean home!

    I love Dr. Bronner's liquid castile soap - I dilute it for all sorts of cleaning jobs. It's the best degreaser I've found yet.

  71. I heart a clean home! I put an orange peel or lemon peel down the garbage disposal and it gives a fresh orange or lemon smell!!


  72. IHeart a Clean Home!

    Magic Eraser...it's magic!

  73. I Heart A Clean Home!

    And just a few minutes a day! EVERY day!

  74. I Heart a Clean Home!

    I'm a vinegar and baking soda girl! My first baking soda tip was to make a paste of baking soda and a little water, when gently scrubbed into scuff marks on the walls the scuffs disappear just as well as the magic erasers, and is not toxic. Have you read about the burns children get from those things?!

    Now that I'm a mom, everything is cleaned with environmentally friendly, non-toxic cleansers.

  75. I HEART a clean home!

    I try to do a load of laundry aday to avoid it piling up and fold it and put away the same day, before starting another load.
    I have black granite counters that are a pain to keep clean and streak free--shows EVERYTHING!Discovered Method all purpose cleaner at Target and it is the BEST for my counters!!
    Would love to try Shaklee--been eyeing it for a while now!!

  76. I Heart a Clean Home!

    I have been wanting to give the Shaklee products a try. What a great giveaway.

  77. IHeart a Clean Home!

    I clean while my toddler is taking a nap. It's the only way to steam-mop the floors so he doesn't track everywhere!

  78. iheart a clean home!! I recently came across Toni's blog, and I fell in love!! I would love to try this product!


  79. IHeart a Clean Home!

    I use vinegar/water to clean glass and get rid of kitchen smells. I also do the orange peel in the disposal trick.

    Heather @ dorilukedesigns.com

  80. IHeart a Clean Home!

    I find I'm always pulling out the baking soda and vinegar when it comes to my deep cleaning days!

  81. IHeart a Clean Home!

    I once read that the best way to clean your toilet is:

    The night before cleaning, pour a half cup of distilled white vinegar in the toilet. Vinegar is a mild acid that will neutralize and break down the water rings in the toilet. The next day raise the toilet lid, sprinkle in some baking soda. This serves as a scrub. Grab your toilet bowl cleaning brush and clean the inside of the toilet. Since you've already poured vinegar in the night before, cleaning should be easy. Vinegar is a better disinfectant than bleach that breaks down the hard water stains.

    My toilet has never been cleaner.

  82. iheart a clean home!
    im excited about this giveaway, ive wanted to try shaklee for awile.
    my favorite tip(s) for cleaning... self cleaning oven. deligate. microfiber cloth.

  83. IHeart a clean home!
    Spending 20 min a day cleaning saves you from spending half your Saturday doing it!


  84. I HEART a clean home!
    I've been a wife for just under a year and still haven't busted into too many cleaning tricks (I was that roommate who could stand a dirty house longer than the other girls), but I do love using microfiber rags for dusting!
    I am so intrigued by Shaklee products! Never heard of them until your blog and A Bowl Full of Lemons!

  85. IHeart a Clean Home! I am horrible at keeping a tidy house (even with my bi-monthly cleaning service), so I have no tips to share but will be reading everyone elses.

  86. I Heart a Clean Home.

    i would love to try the Shaklee.


  87. IHEART a clean home!!

    I was using green products but found them not to work as well as Kaboom foaming blue cleanser. It works great but I would like a great green cleaner!


  88. I Heart a clean home! When I'm washing a load of towels, I'll take a washcloth and wipe down the inside of the washer door and its seals, then pop the washcloth in with the load.


  89. iHeart a clean home!!
    Like several others, I have wanted to try these products. The thought of saving so much money over traditional cleaning products really makes me happy.
    I don't really have any great "cleaning tip" but have picked up some great ones from reading the comments!

  90. IHEART a clean home!
    Don't try to clean your home all in one day, spread it out into manageable tasks throughout the week!

  91. I recently found your website and I love it!! I am a very visual person and I love to see your ideas with your pictures. I look forward to your future posts and I hope to have a chance to try the cleaners! Thanks.


  92. I would love to try these products. I'm all about using cleaners that are safe for kids. My cleaning tip is my Shark Steam mop - I love it because it doesn't use anything but water!

  93. I HEART a clean home!
    Couldn't clean my house without all my microfiber cloths. when I'm done I just throw them in the washer and they're ready for my next cleaning spree.

  94. Iheart a clean home.

    My favorite cleaning tip is vinegar has so many uses. I love to use it in the rinse cycle of my laundry. It helps keep colors from bleeding. Also when cooking fish, if you leave a bowl of vinegar on the counter it helps absorb some of the odor.



    My favorite tip is to boil water in my micro before even trying to chip off the dried up splatters - Leave it sitting for a couple minutes with the door still closed & it is easy-peazy.


  96. I heart a clean home!


  97. IHeart a Clean Home!

    I have just gotten into cleaning with vinegar. I am wanting to get into earth and home friendly cleaners.


  98. IHeart a Clean Home!

    .... but I'm really bad at getting there! (which is why I adore your blog!)

    I guess my favorite cleaning tip would be convincing the hubs he should fold the laundry so we can get to bed earlier *wink wink* ... ;-)

    Really, having a schedule & a list keep me on track most of the time.


  99. IHeart a Clean home!

    I wipe down my garbage can with a Clorox wipe every time I take out the garbage, this keep sit pretty clean and drip free.

  100. I use a similar trick as well. I put a cup of half water/half lemon juice in the microwave and turn it on for about 3 minutes. Everything wipes out clean and leaves behind a clean smelling microwave :)

  101. IHeart a clean home.

    My only cleaning tip that comes to mind (and I wish I followed it more!) never go to bed with a messy kitchen.

  102. I Heart a Clean Home!

    My cleaning tip is to get the kids involved as young as possible so they help without a fight and the works gets done faster.

  103. IHeart a clean home!!!
    I try to pick up as much as I can while I go from room to room.

  104. IHeart a clean home!!

  106. "IHeart a Clean Home!"

    My secret weapon is flylady.net

    "15 minutes a day keeps the chaos away!"

    You can use baking soda and vinegar to clean a lot of things ... no more $50 trips down the cleaning aisle for chemicals that are harmful to me and my family!


  107. Thanks for the giveaway! I have really been wanting to try this! I mainly use baking soda, hydrogen peroxide, and vinegar for my cleaning. But I haven't found a good way to clean my mirrors.

  108. "IHeart a Clean Home!"
    I always do a night time sweep before bed of things that are out of place. If I do it once a night, then several things are out of place by the end of the week.


  109. "IHeart a Clean Home!" Scrubbing the kitchen floor on your hands and knees is the ONLY way to get it really clean.

  110. Oops! tiffany.leasure@gmail.com


  111. IHeart a Clean Home!

    My best tip is for keeping your sponge clean. I keep my sponge stored in the dishwasher, so every time I run the washer, it gets freshened up. When I want to make sure it's completely germ-free, I get it moist and pop it into the microwave for a minute or so!


  112. I'm definitely interested in seeing what all the Shakless fuss is about.


  113. IHeart a Clean Home!

    I've always wanted to try Shaklee products but have not yet! I hope I win!! bridgetbarton@gmail.com

  114. IHeart a Clean Home!

    I use vinegar in my dishwasher to get rid of the hard water spots on my dishes.

    travislisa at suddenlink dot net

  115. iheart a clean home!!

    My cleaning tip would be to always make sure the dishes are done before you go to bed. A shiny sink makes any person smile in the morning.


  116. Oooops! IHEART a clean home! One of my favorite tips is to make your own scrubbing cleaner for the bathroom. We have an older tub with some etching, and this stuff cleans it right up better than anything I have found.

    Here's the recipe:
    2 cups baking soda
    1/2 cup liquid castile soap
    5 drops lavender, tea tree, eucalyptus or another essential oil

  117. IHeart a Clean Home!

    Socks on mine and the kids' feet and we "mop" the kitchen floors!! :) Tons of fun and it gets the kids involved, too!


  118. IHeart a Clean Home!!

    We take a few minutes every night and pick up -- love getting up to a clean house!

  119. I heart a clean home!

    Every Monday is my cleaning day, without fail. It is a great way to start off my week and to help me relax a little more on the weekends.

  120. IHeart a clean home!

    To clean the microwave, I fill a bowl half way with water, and let it boil in there for a couple minutes. Then I let it sit in there for 5 or 10 minutes. The microwave wipes clean easily.

    jmojmo24 [at] gmail [dot] com

  121. IHeart a clean home!

    Thanks for the chance to win! I've been really wanting to try these products, but I'm trying to be a good steward & trying it before buying it.

    I don't have any new tricks, I learned them all from everyone else. My favorite though, is to put things back after using them.

    danaedi (at) yahoo (dot) com

  122. The previous comment was mine and I wrote the wrong email address

    tkwilson8 @ gmail.com

    oops :o)

  123. IHeart a Clean Home!

    I was just thinking of this product after seeing it on so many blogs. I don't know anyone in NY who sells this.

  124. I heart a clean home!

    My tip is: if it takes less than 2 minutes to do it go ahead and do it now!

    lisasharp123 comcast net

  125. I wish this stuff was available over the pond in the UK.I have one cleaner for this, one for that and one for something else lol.
    I love my all in one cleaner and use it pretty much everywhere, but it's nowhere near such a good concentrate and very friendly :(
    Someone bring Shaklee to the UK!

  126. My favorite cleaning tip? Pick up as you go. Seriously. It makes you feel majorly less overwhelmed at the end of the day when you only have the last activity's worth of stuff to put away than a whole day's worth of jazz laying everywhere around the house. I try very hard not to end the day with a mess that takes more than 15 minutes to clean up. And I'm talking WHOLE HOUSE. I hate waking up and seeing craziness at every turn in the morning. Best to just try to stay on top of it as it happens. Ok . . . I'll stop talking your ear off now. :)

    P.S. It took me FOREVER to realize this is what I needed to do to not constantly feel overwhelmed. Just saying. Thanks, Flylady.

  127. IHeart a Clean Home!
    I clean my bathtub with a bit of dish soap and a good scrubby sponge so that when my son takes a bath he's not in any traces of harsh cleaners.

  128. IHeart a clean home!

    I just tried vinegar in my bathroom last week for the first time...no more Pinesol for us, but I would love to try this product! I am still learning a lot about cleaning, so not sure if I have any great tips... :)


  129. I've really been wanting to try this!


  130. IHeart a Clean Home!

    My best tip is to have your kids clean their room every evening as part of their bedtime routine. My five-year-old knows that her room needs to be picked up before she goes to bed, and it makes it so much easier to keep control of the kid clutter. Here's hoping I win! I would love to try this product!


  131. I Heart a clean home!!

    My best tip is to make a schedule and stick to it-- for example, I clean bathrooms on Tuesday, vacuum on Wednesday-- etc. I makes it easier to handle than trying to do it all on Saturday.


  132. IHeart A CLEAN HOME!!!

    I have been cleaning with vingear/white for about a year now. I like it, but the smell can be strong at times. I also use Method products. I love their Granite cleaner (nice smell) and their Wood for Good, wood cleaner. I have always wanted to try this product though. And that product would really go a long way. Awesome.

  133. we use Borak for almost everything. Because it is nontoxic the kiddies can assist. Arlindafelix@gmail.com

  134. I heart a clean home! My tip is putting the dusty heat registers in the dish washer for super clean results.

  135. IHeart A Clean Home!

    My tip is to use swiffer wipes to dust, not only does it smell good when your dusting with out leaving the residue behind but it picks up all the dust and then you can still use it to swiffer your floors!


  136. IHeart a clean home! And using coffee filters to wash windows!


  137. IHeart a Clean Home!

    My tip is to use microfiber towels when cleaning the mirror/glass; it gets them so clean! Also I like to use microfiber towels with a bit of water to dust with.

    Thanks for this giveaway! - sandra03402@hotmail.com

  138. IHeart a clean home! I make cleaning my little girls' room part of our evening routine. I also think it helps to keep your dishwasher empty and have everyone just rinse their dish and put it right in the dishwasher when they're done eating/drinking. Beats doing them all at once.


  139. I Heart a Clean House!

    I love microfiber cloths. You can clean and throw them in the was. Much greener than paper towels.

  140. I heart a clean home!
    I slip some microfiber mitts on my boys and have them go to town!

    Thanks so much for the giveaway! I would LOVE to try Shaklee products!

    My cleaning tip: I use a 1/2 cup of vinegar in my washing machine with each load I do. It is a natural static remover & makes my laundry soft!

  142. IHeart a Clean Home oh so very much.

    I have been dying to try out these new cleaning products. Your two blogs are my favs and I love seeing your new posts everyday. It's my "me" time.

    Cleaning tip....turn off the tv and turn on music. It makes it much easier to get things done and not get sucked in with a show. I dance and clean. It's my thing.

  143. I Heart A Clean Home!!

    I would LOVE to try this.

    Favorite cleaning trick (from Real Simple Magazine, of course):
    Alkaseltzer tab (cheap generic version is fine) in the toilet bowl every few days maintains a sparkling bowl! :)


  144. IHeart a Clean Home! If you microwave a cup of water for about a minute....it is much easier to clean!


  145. IHeart A Clean Home!

    Love my magic erasers! They work everywhere, even where I think I'll never get clean!

  146. I Heart a Clean Home!

    This would be great to try.

    I have two faves for cleaning: baking soda for scrubbing and Mr.Clean Magic Eraser for all kinds of cleanup. Works great on crayon and marker messes.


  147. IHeart a Clean Home!

    My best cleaning tip is Mrs. Myers lemon cleaner. I love that I can use it on every surface I my home. (It sounds like this may be even better, though!)

  148. IHeart a Clean Home! My favorite cleaning tip is simply to clean up as I go. Easier said than done but if I at least clean up after myself as I go, it's less to do as I clean up after the hubby and dog. *wry smile* I also find those "lost" socks are great to use to clean/wipe down baseboards, window sills, door jams as I walk by.

  149. IHeart a Clean Home! My tip is to make cleaning a more enjoyable and not so tedious task for your kids. I start by having my boys each pick up say 10 things, then go down to 9 things each, etc. depending on how much stuff needs to get done. One some baddd badd days, I may need to start at 20, but then I usually do 20, 15, 10, then start the single digit countdown.

  150. IHeart a Clean Home!

    Or at least I am working on a home that I love.

    And since I am working on that, I think my cleaning tip would simply by, don't put it off. :)

  151. IHeart a clean home!! I love Shaklee's Get Clean products!! My favorite is the Basic H and Scour Off.
    My favorite natural cleaner when I do not have Shaklee is vinegar and water... not only is it a great all purpose cleaner... it is cheap and it is also helps keep spiders away. I haven't tried it yet but I heard if you dip newspaper in the vinegar/water mix and clean your mirrors with it that it does awesome!!

  152. IHeart A Clean Home!!!

    Keeping cleaner in each bathroom makes clean up fast and easy as soon as a mess is detected!!


  153. i heart a clean home!

    Using a cleaner that smells really good is like having aroma therapy while you work! If you cleaner doesn't smell a lot, light a candle. For some reason having it smell good gets me going!

  154. iHeart a clean home!

    My favorite cleaning "tip" was just learning that you can really make any cleaner that you need for a fraction of the cost and without all the chemicals! The book, "Clean House, Clean Planet" is my favorite resource for cleaning! Club soda for glass/mirrors/windows is amazing, safe, and so much cheaper than any window cleaner you can buy! :o)


  155. IHeart a clean home!

    I've been wanting to try Shaklee products. Usually I just spray dilluted vinegar and hydrogen peroxide to clean everything in my kitchen.

    I would love to try out this amazing product. My puppy puts a;ll in his mouth so I am trying to stay away from any stong chemicals. I bought a steam pocket mop and being in a wheelchair it makes mopping a breeze!!! I have a 9 yr old and puppy and that steam mop gets it all clean!!

    These products sound pretty fabulous! Love how long they last! Just found your blog and I'm excited to explore and get clean and organized! I don't have many amazing tips, but I do like to use dryer sheets in drawers and duffel bags to keep them smelling fresh! Thanks for the opportunity!

  159. IHeart a Clean Home!

    Alcohol wipes work great to remove crayon marks and other scuffs on toys and kid furniture (plastic)!


  160. IHeart a Clean Home!!!

    My secret to a clean home? Invite people over! :) That's a sure-fire way to get myself motivated to cleaning everything top to bottom - because when people come to visit, who doesn't snoop, at least just a little, right?

    I have 3 kids and my "real" best secret to cleaning my home is to involve my kiddos in the cleaning process so they don't make a big mess and leave it for others (aka - me). Even though they don't always clean as well as I do, the added bonus is that they learn valuable life skills and I have less cleanup work because of it.

  161. IHEART a clean home!!!!

    I try and do laundry everyday so that it doesn't get overwhelming


  162. IHeart a clean home

    Thanks for allowing us to enter the giveaway!

  163. IHeart a clean home!

    My best cleaning tip is have a cleaning lady but my husband just got laid-off so now I am back to cleaning my own house and need some great products like Basic H!

  164. IHeart a Clean Home!

    I just recently learned of this easy cleaning tip for stainless steel appliances--WD40. It keeps my appliances looking like new.

    The Shaklee cleaning solution sounds like a great product!

    Have a great day!

  165. IHeart a clean home!!!

    I've been wanting to try these products for a little while now but can't seem to find a Canadian distributor...

    I don't have many cleaning secrets... I'm home with a first baby right now and trying to organize myself and plan for when I go back to work... your blog and a few others have been very helpful lately!!

  166. I just discovered your blog and I'm already inspired - thank you!

    Now that I'm 5 months pregnant with our first sweet pea, I really need a clean and safe home. These products will surely will save me piece of mind, while helping us maintain a clean home.

    My cleaning tip - get everyone involved! My husband and I have always split up the household cleaning duties, which makes the routine much easier to get through, not to mention fun! And the best part? After the house is sparkling we can celebrate our hard work and relax.


  167. Oh, dear! If your microwave is a crime scene, a massacre must have taken place in mine! :/ Lol! I'd love to try this product! Thanks for hosting this great giveaway! :)
    ~ Vida

  168. IHeart a Clean Home! I would love, love love to try these products!! My best cleaning tip is using club soda as a glass cleaner. Cheap, works great, no streaks, and no yucky ammonia smell! Try it!

  169. I Heart a clean home! (forget to put it in my comment - oops!)


  170. IHeart a Clean Home! These products look great!! My best cleaning solution is to only have what you love in your home, and organize what you have left. (It makes it so much easier to clean when there isn't any clutter to move!)

  171. IHeart A Clean Home!

    As a stay-at-home mom of two girls, I am a big fan of staying on top of things as much as possible so I don't end up wasting time doing one big clean-up. It's not easy but I find this actually SAVES me time rather than LOSING time w/my little ones :)


  172. IHeart a Clean Home!

    I also use viegar for most cleaning. My favorite tip is to cut up microfiber dish towels to use for washcloths. I switch often throughout the day. One to wipe the counters, one to wash the baby's tray, etc., so smaller cloths means that more fit in my drawer/washer and I don't feel bad about using 4 in one day.

    I always start from the top and work down when I clean!!


  174. I Heart a Clean Home!

  175. iHeart a Clean Home! My favorite cleaning tip is to do SOMETHING for 15 minutes every single day - it doesn't have to be big, but just clean SOMETHING. My mom taught me this tip and it's been a lifesaver.


    Thanks for the giveaway!

  176. IHeart a Clean Home! :)
    My favorite tip...is to buy a fabric/cloth inside shower curtain (instead of the plastic). When I clean my bathroom I give that fabric curtain a spray down of clorox clean up or bleach...so I know these are not "safe" products. :( It gets rid of the soap build up and water coloring.


  177. IHeart a Clean Home: My tip on cleaning that works so well is to put a Pyrex measuring cup of water into the microwave and heat the water to boiling, then allow the cup to stay in the microwave approximately 5 minutes longer, then open the door and apply the cleaning agent to the inside of the microwave and this trick helps to loosen up the hard cooked on stuff to be wiped out easier.
    Thank you for your time, this is frazzledrazzlern@gmail.com

  178. Iheart a clean home!! I try and do a 20 minute power clean every day. This way I feel like I get so much done durning the week.

  179. I heart a clean home

    I too enjoy using products that are more natural in tone than toxic and like several other posters here I had been eying her products since I discovered her blog.

    A cleaning tip.. hmmm well maybe it more of a motto from a quote I have on a trinket and it reads

    My House Is Clean Enough To Be Healthy
    But Dirty Enough To Be Happy :)

    It helps keep my normal OCD tendancies down a notch.. ha ha


  180. IHeart a clean home!!

    I clean with baking soda and vinegar! :)

  181. I HEART a clean home! My favorite tip is to always have Clorox wipes on hand in every room for those quick clean ups!

  182. iHeart a clean home!! Pick me! I would love to win!

  183. IHeart a Clean Home!

    I always spray my vacuums washable filter with Febreeze when I change the bag. It's not as strong and overpowering as spraying in the air. It gives just enough freshness to the air.

  184. I heart a clean home!

    I clean the whole house on monday and can ease up the rest of the week. I also use lysol wipes for the countertops and such.


  185. IHeart a Clean Home!

    I put vinegar in with every load of laundry so that there is never any mildew smells. It always comes out clean and fresh.

    I'm interested in this product- curious of the ingredients.


  186. I heart a clean home! My best tip to get organized first. It's so much easier to clean!


  187. I heart a clean home!

    My tip is to clean windows on days that aren't too sunny. Helps with streaks. :)

  188. I heart a clean home!

    I like to clean my sink with baking soda and half a lemon. I sprinkle the baking soda, squeeze the lemon juice around and let it fizzle. Then, I use the actual lemon to scrub the paste around the sink and then rinse it off.


  189. IHeart a Clean Home!

    I like giving my kitchen sink a hot bath to clear it of bad odors and grease (I don't even have a garbage disposal, but know it would work if you have one also). Get a whole kettle of water to a boil; pour a good amount of baking soda down each drain, and a good amount of salt. Pour hot water down each drain and then seal the drains. Let sit for at least 2-3 hours.

  190. I heart a clean home!

    Always do your dishes before going to bed.Makes the morning so much better!


  191. IHeart a Clean Home!
    My favorite cleaning tip came from my mom when cleaning the drains in your house. You need baking soda, vinegar, and your drain stopper. Sprinkle soda down the drain, pour in a little vinegar, and pull the drain stopper. While the soda and vinegar are working their magic, fill the sink up with warm water. After 5 minutes, pull the drain stopper and allow the water to drain out. I've NEVER had a drain plug up...thanks mom for the great advice!!

  192. Iheart a clean home too! One of my tips is that I love to get my kiddos involved. I bought a new mop today and they all fought over it! I would love to try these products- this is the 3rd time I've tried to win them. Maybe the 3rd time's a charm??? tripletsplusanother.blogspot.com

  193. IHeart a clean home!! I always add a dash of vinegar mid-cycle in my dishwasher. It removes all the white film off my glasses. ;)

  194. "IHeart a Clean Home!"
    I have cats that like to puke up food and hairballs, so I read somewhere to let it dry, them use club soda (after picking off what comes off naturally) and let sit, then I use the bathroom cleaner from the Dollar Store and it takes out all color of puke...

  195. I heart a clean Home!!

    I have been wondering about these products for a while, and I read about them on Bowl Full of Lemons blog all the time. So this would be great to try!!
    Tip - I have reduced my nicknack stuff for less and easier dusting!! :)

  196. IHeart a clean home!!

    I've been trying to save money any way I can while still being environmentally friendly, and these seem like they would be PERFECT for that!

  197. I Heart a Clean Home!

    My cleaning tip is to do a room every day so that you don't have to spend one day doing it all!


  198. IHeart a Clean Home!


    We always do the dishes the night before so we can wake up to a clean kitchen!

  199. I heart a clean home!

    My favorite cleaning tip is to tidy up/de-clutter in the downtime of other activities... i.e, unload the dishwasher or sort through mail while i'm waiting for something to be done heating up in the microwave.
