Review and Giveaway: Simple Green Naturals
Uhm, cleaning is not my favorite activity.
There, I typed it.
This will come as no surprise to the hubby. I mean, he HAS lived with me for almost 28 years now.
But things need to be cleaned and so they get cleaned....
It is nice, though when you can clean with products you like to use. Products that smell good and won't harm the environment.
Products like the Naturals line from Simple Green. Woo hoo for them!
You will recall that I have already told you about two of these delightful products - the Dishwashing Liquid and the Hand Soap. I even showed you photos of my bubbles. And I don't show my bubbles to just anybody. Both of these soaps were wonderful so I was excited to try the other products in the line so with a sense of cleaning adventure I sallied forth to conquer my bathroom.
Don't worry. There won't be photos. I care about you and don't want to ruin your eyes for the rest of the day.
I started with the Simple Green Naturals Bathroom Cleaner. The label's purple. I like purple but more than that this stuff does a really good job cleaning. And it smells good - not all chemically like other products out there. The scent is rosemary mint and it's just lovely. It really brightens one's cleaning mood. I need that. I used it on the trailer's toilet and in my bathroom sink and it did just like the company says:
Simple Green Naturals Bathroom Cleaner is designed for use on soils such as water borne minerals and soap scum that are commonly found in the tub, toilet and sink. The product is easy to use. Simply spray, mop or wipe onto a surface and scrub if necessary. For best results, rinse or damp wipe with clean water.
It really made getting rid of that soap scum easy. Not that I am saying I let my sink go long enough to have soap scum. Nope, I am not saying that at all.
I also made use of Simple Green Naturals Glass and Surface Care. Although I will admit that I was liking the way I looked in my mirror with that fog of whatever that had built up on it. It muted my wrinkles. Now my mirror is bright and sparkling clean. I am not sure I am thankful for this since now I can see how old I am. Hmmm, the product did a great job cleaning but cannot erase the fact that I am old. Oh well, it does not promise miracles but according to Simple Green:
Simple Green Naturals Glass & Surface Care is effective for use on glass and reflective surfaces. It is easy to use. This ready-to-use glass cleaner can be simply sprayed onto a glass, reflective or other hard surface and wiped clean with a lint free paper towel, a non-abrasive lint free cloth or clean microfiber cloth. This product will provide the best results when used on a cool surface.
It also did a great job cleaning my microwave but my microwave is not in my bathroom and this is a post about cleaning my bathroom. How weird would it be to have a microwave in your bathroom....
You can purchase the Naturals line right on the Simple Green website. How easy is that?
Now for the giveaway! One lucky reader will win the entire Naturals line. Woo hoo for cleaning!
Did I really just type that?! Yes I did. Cause cleaning is ALMOST fun with these products. Now I am not promising you fun with your cleaning but for me these products did a great job. I am also not going to do your cleaning for you. I have enough problems doing my own. heh heh
