Safeguard Your Home Kit

Safeguard Your Home Kit

It seems as though I have someone spying on me lately. Packages of cleaning products keep arriving at my door! I think someone is onto me. My house needs some spring cleaning! The reality is I’m often provided with samples of products to try them out and share them with my readers. I’ve tried a number of products over the years and I’m always looking at the ingredients, cost and effectiveness. The bottom line is the product needs to work if I’m going to pay for it. Naturally, I don’t want to recommend any product that I haven’t tried and thoroughly tested. Which means my house must be sparkling clean, right?

Don’t bet on it!

With Earth Day on Tuesday there’s a big push to help consumers make the switch to Eco-friendly brands and products.  Unfortunately most over the counter household cleaners are loaded with toxic chemicals. The combinations of these ingredients are beyond hazardous to our health and can pose many risks from respiratory irritation, chemical burns and potential long-term effects.  The Organic Consumers Organization has an excellent post about the risks, what to look for and how to read the “eco-claims”.  If you’re wondering about what cleaners are the worse check out this Huffington Post article that gives you the run down and then check under your kitchen sink…you might be surprised!Safeguard Your Home Green Cleaning Kit #Green #SpringCleaning

Making the switch to safer products for house cleaning is an overall wise decision for your health and for the environment, which is why there is so much buzz about it during the month of April.  But what products should you choose and how do you decide what is safe and what will work? That is often times the tough part of making the switch and greening your lifestyle. I have used and continue to use a variety of products as well as making my own but Earth Friendly Products, makers of the number one selling green laundry detergent in the country – ECOS, had a great idea to help you make the switch to safer products. They’ve created a Safeguard your Home kit that comes with dish washing detergent, window cleaner, laundry detergent, dish soap and Eco Breeze for those not so good smells.

Safeguard Your Home Green Cleaning Kit #Green #SpringCleaningEverything in one box for under $35 and guess what? I’ve tried ALL of it out and I love it! I especially love the Parsley Plus All Purpose Cleaner (see the ingredients here)! The stuff leaves my granite counter tops sparkly clean and it smells wonderful!  So if you’re looking to make the switch, this is a great way to start without wondering what products to buy and where to start.

    I would love to win because in the last few years I have become very interested in using natural items especially because I have young children and these would be wonderful to try.

  • lindahoward

    I do have COPD (never smoked) and have always avoided dangerous chemicals in cleaning products. I have tried some of these products and loved them and would love to try those products that I have never tried. Thanks for the opportunity to win them!

  • windycindy

    Hi, Our sons and I have so many allergies and sinus problems, year round~
    I would be thrilled to try these healthier home and environmental products!
    Also, I clean my 95 year old Dad’s home, once a week.
    Many thanks to you…Cindi

  • I love trying and testing eco products in the home! I sometimes find myself going back to the heavy duty cleaners, when the family gets sick, because we’re programmed to think harsher means cleaner, but then I try to deprogram and try something not so harsh but hopefully effective!

    I’d love to try this, because I’m a neat freak and clean a lot.

    I’d love to win this kit! With 5 young children at home, several of whom have allergies, it is important for me to use cleaning products that are eco-friendly, but still get the job done well. Awesome giveaway!

  • Angela Ash

    I use vinegar and baking soda for cleaning but that’s as far as it goes. I’ve tried some green brands but I don’t think they were organic as they still had somewhat of a chemical smell to them. The Parsley Plus All Purpose Cleaner sounds like it does work good and would have a nice smell. I grow parsley and use it often for cooking. I never thought I’d see it in a cleaning product but it’s definitely interesting.

  • Joe GErsch

    I have severe allergies to dust mites and harsh chemicals really bother me. I do not want to pollute or put my family at risk with chemicals found in common cleaners. Therefore, this would be perfect for me

  • kohndr
