Cleaning up the Messes (+ a Giveaway!)

Last week was rough.  By Friday I felt like I had fallen off a cliff. 

I knew the week was going to be a particularly busy one, a week of new routines and fitting in appointments and photo shoots and out of town guests and a family wedding, but in addition to all that, life threw a few curve balls my way – a few hard life-smacks in the face, you know, nothing I won’t eventually recover from.  But it was rough.

And the the thing about a crazy busy rough week is that all the mundane details that come with keeping a house and a family only loom larger. In addition to all the extra appointments and jobs, I still had meals to make, dishes to wash, unexpected spills to mop up, and those bathroom mirrors needed attention before our company arrived.  Luckily I had a bit of extra help this week.

Recently, Andrea (from Maia the Bee) sent me some Basic H2 Organic Super Cleaning Concentrate from Shaklee.  I normally make my own cleaners – vinegar is my best friend!  There aren’t very many genuinely earth friendly + affordable cleaners that I have found that can rival my simple homemade concoctions.  But after using Basic H this week, I have nothing but good things to say about it (and not because anyone paid me either).

I am still going to use my vinegar and baking soda pals when I scrub the toliet bowls, but it was so handy to have a spray bottle of Basic H around all week for wiping counters and floors, mirrors and stove tops, and even the dashboard of the car when a sippy cup exploded (gah!). 

Basic H is a cleaner I can feel good about.  It is:

  • Nontoxic
  • Natural
  • Doubly Concentrated
  • Biodegradable

After using it all week, I really wanted to tell you about it because it might make your clean-ups a bit easier too.  I am certainly not being paid to say any of this, I just liked the cleaner and found it very handy.  In fact, just after I started writing this post, my sweet Ada (finding Mama occupied for a moment) found her way onto the bathroom counter with a tube of open toothpaste (blame her sisters for that!).   Thank you Basic H for making yet another mess an easy clean up.
