Squeaky Clean

As part of the FoodBuzz Featured Publisher program, I was sent these Clorox GreenWorks products for review

I have used GreenWorks products in the past on my own and I can vouch for their effectiveness of the All-Purpose Cleaner and the Cleaning Wipes

And the lack of chemically smell

I was most excited to try this laundry detergent

MY OTHER RECIPES

I do a lot of laundry

Between having a child and let’s face it, kids get dirty, and we also have workout clothes, everyday clothes, sheets, towels, and so I’ve got one load per day or more

I am always skeptical of natural laundry detergents because most of them just do not work

This detergent, two loads later, seems to work just as well as any other conventional detergent which is great!

The lavender scent is a bit strong but I don’t mind some fragrance on my clothes.   I guess that’s my old-school way of feeling like the clothes are really clean.

Plus, I love lavender

But they also make a Free and Clear detergent if you’re not into scented laundry

In other news, I was recently named a Love Grown Foods Love Blogger

And so you’ll be seeing some Love Grown Foods reviews and likely some giveaways in the future.  Stay tuned.

Now if you’ll excuse me, I need a piece of White Chocolate Cookies & Cream Fudge before I go fold some laundry

Questions:

1. Have you ever tried Greenworks or any other natural, eco-friendly, reduced-chemicals type of cleaning product or detergent?  How did it work for you?

As I said, I’ve tried plenty of natural products in the past.  Sometimes they work, sometimes they don’t.

Natural cleaning products such as all-purpose cleaning sprays and wipes seem to be “easier” for the natural-based companies to get right.

The natural oilet bowl cleaners seem okay, too.

It’s venturing into the territory of shower cleaners, dishwasher detergent, and laundry detergent where all bets seem to go out the window in terms of efficacy.  As in, many of them just don’t cut the mustard the grease and grime and dirt.

Natural is great if it works.  The GreenWorks products I’ve tried have all worked for me.

2. How often do you do laundry?  Clean your bathroom?  Or really go to town on cleaning your kitchen? 

Laundry = one daily load, and on sheets days, two loads

Cleaning my bathroom = a quickie cleaning daily (spray down the shower floor with cleaner upon exit) and a quick wipedown of the counters and mirrors <– takes me about 3 minutes total.  And once a week or every couple weeks I do a really thorough cleaning, i.e. toilets, floors, etc.

Kitchen = I cannot stand a messy kitchen so it’s always left in perfect order.  Just one of those uber pet-peeves of mine to have anything on the counters from food left out to drips of sauces staining the counters to dirty dishes laying around or in the sink so my kitchen is always cleaned after I am done making a mess in it.  And once a week or so, I do the floors, clean the stainless on the refrigerator door, that kind of thing.

3. Are you a Clean/Neat Freak or more along the lines of A Little Messy Never Hurt Anyone?

I am the former.  I actually wish I could be the later, but it’s not how I’m wired.

Talk to my sister though.   We are opposites that way!
