Yes, add more green to your clean?
How do I mean?
One way is by being more eco friendly and using GLASS, recycled materials, and eco friendly ingredients.
The second way is SAVE MONEY by following the first way mentioned!
A few days ago I received a box packed full of goodies from Cleaning Essentials. Not only was it filled with awesome products to put to great use in my home, but it was also filled with SO much information- things I had never known. It was filled with facts that made me even more happy to be making the switch to a cleaner lifestyle!
Did you know there is often times MORE pollution INSIDE of your home than outside? I surely can not be the only one who is terrified by that fact! We have all become so accustomed with the “easy way” of buying household cleaners off of the shelves in the grocery store for $4, 5, 6 a bottle. Do you know what HALF of those ingredients are that are listed? Because I sure don’t. At a quick glance, it might seem more expensive to buy a cheap bottle of alcohol, big tub of vinegar, purchase the glass bottles, the baking soda etc, but when you factor in how many times you can re-fill the glass bottle using the same ingredients you only had to purchase once, it ends up costing you around $.60 or so by the time you use up all of the ingredients.
So you’ve made your own cleaner before? So have I (in a plastic bottle), and I was so wary of if my measurements were correct, I wasn’t crazy about the smell, occasionally I would add too much vinegar and it would smell or too much water and it would leave streaks. It was such a hassle. Cleaning Essentials takes ALL of the guess work out of creating your own natural cleaners at home. Each bottle and jar displays lines marked with each ingredient so you know exactly where to fill them to, and you start from the base and work your way up. They even sell beautiful essential oil blends that make the product that they help YOU create smell amazing!
A little side note about their Essential Oils! They sell the sweetest little cotton “diffuser”! It is a beautiful bloom of natural cotton and all you do is simply pull it over the top of the jar’s lip and add a few drops of the oil to it and the cotton holds the oil and releases its amazing fragrance. I LVOE it! Cleaning Essentials recommends using it in a small space such as a bathroom, office etc BUT I had set it out on our kitchen counter and I can smell it throughout the downstairs whenever I come home! It looks so beautiful and simple!
The glass spray bottles are available in Amber and their original color which is a GORGEOUS blue!
Each bottle comes with 5 different recipes labeled on them, one for every purpose you may need allowing you to replace EVERY chemical filled store bought cleaner you have in your home! The bottles come with a tag and inside is this tiny green leaf. The leaf comes off and sticks to the bottle so you can label which cleaner is which, how clever, right?
Cleaning Essentials uses BPA and Lead-free glass and is durability guaranteed (you know, if you were worried about the glass aspect). The other great benefit of the glass is that it protects the essential oils from UV rays so your cleaning product will always keep that great fragrance!
Lastly. The big reason I stopped using chemicals.
Why would you NOT take a few minutes to create safe products for your family? I’m pregnant, the less chemicals I am near, the less toxic chemicals I breathe in, the better for not only my health and my family’s health, but it is what’s best for this sweet little life I’m creating!
No toxic chemicals also means putting little hands to work and not feeling guilty about how much they get on their hands. Score!
Lastly, Cleaning Essentials ALSO has a large glass jar with a lid and it has instructions for gentle, all- purpose and heavy duty wipes! You fill the jar the same way and add in the t-shirt pieces and let them soak and anytime you need quick access to a wipe to clean quickly, they are ready to go! SO COOL! What? Did I say t-shirt? Yes, I most certainly did! They Show instructions on where and how to cut an old (or new if you please) t-shirt to use as rags! This company stands behind their belief that reusing is DEFINITELY always better than recycling when you can!
I am SO glad to have found Cleaning Essentials. They have removed all of the guesswork and doubt around creating my own cleaners. They smell wonderful, they are durable and beautiful and quality products and best and most important of all- they WORK.
No chemicals, no fuss.
Just easy, all natural cleaning. The way it should be.
