New Friend Friday and A Great Giveaway!!

Hello friends! This week’s New Friend Friday is being sponsored by

Bonnie from House of Grace.

Not only does she have a rockin blog where she posts about organization, recipes, garage sale-ing and more but she also posts about her business venture with Shaklee.

I remember years ago when I was kid I knew that name very well. My mom used to buy Shaklee vitamins and I remember they smelled BAD! lol But, Shaklee has definitely come a long way and they have this amazing line of natural cleaning products called “Get Clean“.

In all honesty, I’m not the most “green” person you’ll ever meet. I don’t recycle (don’t stone me or send me hate mail please!) and I have all of your basic cleaning supplies under the sinks in my kitchen and bathroom. But, always looking to try something new I agreed on the spot to receive some cleaning products from Bonnie to try out. I mean, any excuse to get my butt in gear and my house cleaned, right?

Well…………I really had a great experience with all the products Bonnie sent me like the Basic H2, Dish Wash Concentrate (smells soooo nice), Dish Wash Automatic Concentrate – for the dish washer (a tiny little bit goes a really long way) and my all time F.A.V.O.R.I.T.E. Scour Off Heavy Duty Paste. Seriously…….the BEST thing ever! Cleaning my bath tub is a piece of cake with this stuff. I mean it! I love the Mr. Clean Magic Sponge but this one really blows that out of the water for me when it comes to cleaning my tub.

I did manage to take some pictures of my cleaning spree and you can see for yourself how great this stuff works. (Disclaimer: My camera is not great so the pics are not great. But please trust me, there was a big difference.)

First thing I tackled with the kitchen. Cleaned the stovetop and faucet with Basic H Degreaser and I was really happy with the results:


Note: I didn’t clean the metal burner plates, just the stove top.

This faucet is old and leaky but I’m really loving how clean and shiny it came out:



Next I hit the bathtub in our main bathroom. I’ve learned that soap scum is hard to clean. For years we had an old yucky bathroom that no matter how much I cleaned the but, it still looked awful. Then last year we re-did out bathroom and which has a bright white tub (as opposed to the spectacular pink thing we used to have!) so the dirt and “yuck” is much more noticeable. The only thing that came close to getting it clean was the Magic Sponge but after awhile that was not even doing the trick. The Scour Off did an amazing job on my tub. Again, not great pics but I was really amazed at how good the but came out.



I’m happy to announce that 10 yes 10 lucky winners are going to receive a sample of Basic H2 which is enough to make (2) 16 ounce bottles of cleaner.
