I have been using Shaklee’s Basic H2® to clean with for quite a few months now and I absolutely love it. Here are 10 reasons to love Basic H2.
1. Stop living in a toxic home
Some of the most questionable chemicals used regularly in household products are ammonia, chlorine bleach, phenol, butyl cellosolve and formaldehyde – all of which can be found under your kitchen sink. Basic H2 is non-toxic and safe for your family.
2. Everything and the kitchen sink
Basic H2 cleans it all – from kitchens and bathrooms to appliances, woodwork, mirrors, painted walls and floors – it even does windows. So toss those single purpose cleaners like sink and tile cleaners. Mix 1/4 teaspoon in 16oz of water in a Get Clean spray bottle for all purpose cleaning and 2 drops in 16oz of water to clean windows.
3. Eliminate your ammonia-based window cleaner
Basic H2 cleans windows without streaking while being a great alternative to leading brands. Basic H2 window cleaner is equivalent in performance to Windex® Original.*
4. Removes the impossible
From lipstick on a linen napkin to crayons on a painted wall, full-strength Basic H2 comes to the rescue.
5. Great for cutting grease
Tough on greasy barbecue grills, ovens and even oil spots on concrete. Mix 2 oz per gallon of water for a super-degreaser formula.
6. Does odd jobs
One tablespoon of Basic H2 in a bucket of hot water lifts off old wallpaper. One and a half teaspoons in a half gallon cleans sticky paintbrushes. Just soak for 24 hours and rinse with hot tap water.
7. Saves money
One 16 oz bottle of Basic H2 diluted per label directions makes 214 bottles (28 oz) of ready-to-use all-purpose cleaner.
8. Camping and traveling companion
Take along a small size of Basic H2 to keep clothes, dishes and everything else clean. You’ll also help keep the great outdoors unpolluted.
9. Easy on the planet
Biodegradable and environmentally friendly, Basic H2 handles even hard-to-clean jobs without phosphates, borates, nitrates or other stuff the planet doesn’t appreciate.
10. Less in the landfill
Basic H2 is super-concentrated, so you’ll use fewer bottles of cleaning products throughout the year.*This performance comparison was conducted on June 6, 2006 and is valid only for the named product marketed at that time. Trademark is the property of its respective owner.
If you are interested in removing toxic cleaners from your home, these are the products I recommend:
Canadians shop here
Get Clean Starter Kit (You would spend $3,400 for ready-to-use cleaners to get the same amount of clean found in the Get Clean Starter Kit)
Basic G Disinfectant Cleaner (Germicide that kills germs and viruses)
Americans shop here
