Get Clean Basic H2 vs. Vinegar

 

GET CLEAN BASIC H2 VS. VINEGAR

I often hear people say that they want to use “green” cleaners but they think it’s too expensive or they don’t think they cleaners do a good job.   So they try vinegar.  They like it but they hate the smell. They also think it saves them money. Even if you thought you were saving money and helping the environment using the old stand-by of vinegar, you might be interested in learning that even these formulas from the past end up costing more and are actually creating more packaging waste. Not fitting in with today’s picture of being environmental.

Let’s take a closer look.

 

Get Clean Basic H2 vs. Vinegar

Usage Per Gallon for a General Cleaner: Vinegar – 1/2 cup / Basic H2 – 2 teaspoons

Distilled Vinegar

(1/2 cup per gallon of water for general cleaning)

Cost per bottle = 16 oz / .89 cents (Acme brand 10/09)

Usage Cost: to make 1 gallon general cleaner = .22 cents

Usage Cost: to make 48 gallons general cleaner = $10.68

Packaging Waste: 12 Bottles to make 48 gallons of general cleaner

note: if you need to add baking soda, dish soap, or oil to the formula for persistent stains or cleaning that’s an additional expense and additional packaging waste.

Shaklee Basic H2

(2 teaspoons per gallon of water for ALL-PURPOSE Cleaner)
Over 1000 different uses with this one bottle!

Cost per bottle = 16 oz / $10.35 (10/09)

Usage Cost: to make 1 gallon All-Purpose Cleaner = .22 cents

Usage Cost: to make 48 gallons All-Purpose Cleaner = $10.68

ONE Bottle makes 48 Gallons of All-Purpose Cleaner!

(One bottle of Basic H2 equals the cleaning uses of 5,824 bottles of 26 oz.
Windex)

For every ONE Bottle of Basic H2 used for All-Purpose Cleaning you would use 12 bottles of vinegar plus, if needed, baking soda to do the same amount of clean. Plus, Basic H2 has the smell of “clean” and is pH balanced with our skin. No need to wear gloves or a mask.

Shaklee’s Basic G (Safe Alternative to Bleach)

 Basic g Banner

I have been getting numerous emails about how to use  Basic G, Shaklee’s Natural Germicide.

So, today I am writing a post to let everyone know about our safer alternative to Lysol or Bleach and how to use it.

The safest disinfectant on the market! Nonflammable, Biodegradable & Non-toxic. Cleans, Disinfects & Deodorizes in 1 Easy Step!

(Once mixed, use in 30 days)

Mix 3/8 teaspoon to 16 oz spray bottle.

Mix 1 tablespoon to 1 gallon of water.

Because it is so concentrated, a little goes a long way and saves your wallet!

Shaklee Basic G is an amazing non-toxic Germicide that I have used for 2 years.  It is safe enough to use even when pregnant.

I  use this 16 oz. bottle that Shaklee carries.

Basic-G has a 3 year shelf life. Its residual effectiveness lasts up to three days after application. Chlorine (bleach) used as a disinfectant is effective no more than one hour. Great wherever disinfectants are used! Kills up to 99% of bacteria.

 

The many uses of Basic-G…

Basic-G-kill-germs-naturally PWS

In the Bathroom:

Toilets

Garbage Pails

Diaper Pails

Sinks and Faucets

Showers

In the Kitchen:

Countertops

Cutting Boards (not around food)

Faucet and Sink

Refrigerator Handles

Floors

After preparing eggs, chicken & meats to kill Salmonella

Trash Cans

Door Knobs

Pet areas

Use as a Weed Killer

1-gallon Water

1-Tablespoon of Shaklee Basic G

1/2-cup of white vinegar

Makes the best weed killer, and it is safe.

 

For diapers and other problem jobs

Add 1 teaspoon per load to deodorize and disinfect. Helps eliminate diaper rash!

Safe to use as an air freshener.

Safe for stainless steel & aluminum.

It is safe to  use on hard, non-porous surfaces.

Great for disinfecting throughout your house

EPA registered

One quart makes up to 64 gallons

Basic G kills 32 pathogens while Lysol only kills 8 pathogens.

 

One question we have heard over the years is about  the labeling on the bottle.  “If it is non-toxic, why are there warnings on the bottle?”

According to EPA standards, bottles must be labeled according to what is IN the bottle.  Now, remember, more than 80,000 products are not registered with the EPA or labeled correctly.  This is a plus for Shaklee and their reputation for integrity in that it is registered and labeled correctly.  So when it comes to the concentrated form of Basic G, if what is IN the bottle were to be consumed, it is toxic by EPA standards.  However, it is not nearly as toxic as other cleaners. However, in it’s properly diluted form it is completely non-toxic and not harmful at all.

Shaklee did not put it in the Get Clean line because the advertising of that line is all Non-Toxic.

While Basic G is non-toxic when diluted, it is not in it’s concentrated form thus they left it out of the line.

Concentrated Basic G Tough On Germs

Basic-6® Germicide is effective against the following pathogens (6/96):

Streptococcus pyogenes *Vaccinia

Salmonella choleraesuis *Rubella (German Measles)

Candida albicans *Adenovirus type 4

I love knowing that I can kill germs and not use all of the harsh chemicals to do so.  Basic G is a safe alternative to any disinfectant and works better!

 

To read more about Basic G or to order yours today, please visit my online Shaklee site.

 

Shaklee also carries Germ Off Disinfecting Fragrance Free Wipes in their Get Clean Line. It kills odor-causing bacteria found on hard,non-porous household, kitchen, and bathroom surfaces. Great for cleaning around the toilet. Leaves your bathroom and kitchen fresh and clean. The smart way to clean and disinfect.  I use these often and I try to always have some in my van to use on the go.  You can recycle them too!

Blessings to you!!

March Shaklee Specials

I get asked all the time about Shaklee. What is it, why did I choose it, etc…

That’s a hard question to sum up in just a short post, but basically, Shaklee is the Number 1 Natural Nutrition Company in the US. They’ve been around for almost 60 years now, and were essentially green before green was more than a color! They have 4 different major product lines: healthy home, healthy weight, healthy beauty, and healthy nutrition. I love them all. I’ve been using them in my home for over 2 years, and gradually over the past 2 years I have made our home completely non-toxic with Shaklee – from the cleaners, to our shampoos & soaps, to our daily supplements, and to our meal replacement smoothees!

Maybe you’ve heard of them from Oprah, or from the fact that the cleaners are the only thing used in the White  House for the past 8 years, either way, if you’d like more information, you can find it here.

But today, I wanted to share our amazing March Specials before the month is up!!!

For anyone who is new to Shaklee, if you place a qualifying order (which is easy, and we can discuss) you’ll receive a FREE lifetime membership (which saves you 15-25% off for life) AND one of my favorite cans of protein smoothee mix!
