I first heard about Shaklee on Oprah:

I was very interested in their products, but kept using vinegar to clean my house. The sad thing is that my kids won't clean with vinegar because they don't like the smell, so they use the dangerous commercial cleaning products when they clean. I was so happy when Jennifer from Blissfully Ever After offered to let me try Shaklee for free and do a giveaway.

She sent me the Basic H to try and I am loving it! I really want to buy the other products and make my entire house safe and clean.

Here is my review of Shaklee Basic H:
This 16 oz. bottle makes 48 gallons of safe and effective all purpose cleaner. You just add water to the spray bottles and a couple of drops up to 1 1/2 tsp of cleaner.

One 16 oz. bottle of degreaser costs 17 cents to make.
My favorite use is for the range, hood, and tile backsplash. I always get an insane amount of grime on top of my hood and this stuff wipes it off just as well as a commercial cleaner without the harmful chemicals.

Fridge Before
Fridge After
One 16 oz. bottle of all-purpose cleaner costs 3 cents to make.
My favorite use is for the fridge. I like that I can spray it and spot clean without removing all of the food. I would never spray a commercial cleaner in my fridge while the food is still in it. I also use it on the outside of my fridge and other appliances.

Bathroom mirror before
Bathroom mirror after
One 16 oz. bottle of window cleaner costs less than 1 cent to make.
I love using this stuff on my windows and mirrors! It is safe for my kids to use and there is no smell like when I use vinegar to clean (now my kids have no excuses). Use it with a micofiber cloth for easy cleaning.

Here are some other uses for Basic H (a quick google search will give you instructions on each use):
kitchen appliances
all glass
pots and pans
fruit and vegetables
woolens, nylons and all fine fabrics
spot remover
knives (helps sharpen them)
fish odors
boat algae
frying vats
painting and dyeing
eye glasses
car wash
house plants
paint brushes
skunk odor
vinyl upholstery
and hundreds more...

Jennifer from Blissfully Ever After is giving away 5 samples of Basic H to readers of my blog.
