Giveaway Weekend

Hey hey! I’m so excited about this weekend’s giveaway and I know you all will be too. Cause I know you all LOVE TO CLEAN!!
Whoohoo!!
Am I right?
I said, Am I right??
Crickets.

OK, I’m really excited about this giveaway because I really love this stuff. And I love giving away stuff I use and love. The love affair started a couple of years ago when I did my first Shaklee giveaway.
I was Hooked. (With a capital “H.”)
Other than an occasional cleaning wipe and toilet bowl cleaner, Shaklee is ALL I use anymore. I donated all of my other cleaning supplies a long time ago and haven’t missed them since.

I have a few Shaklee favorites, but the one I love to show off the most is the Scour Off:

This stuff ROCKS!
And it looks pretty (it’s PINK!) and smells amazing. I’ve told you before you’ll want to lick it. For real.
Just don’t.
(I think one of the main ingredients is cherry pits – hence the smell.)
Here’s where I show you how much I like you all, cause I’m going to show you my dirty oven:

That glass is the hardest spot to clean in my house, I swear. Am I right? I mean, am I right? ;)
Can I get a holla?
If you’ve been around for awhile, you’ve seen my dirty oven before. My apologies.
Every time we cook lately, the smoke alarm goes off, cause there’s so much junk in there:

I’m getting tired of waving the paper at the alarm every night, (or…every other night. Like I cook every night.) so I figured it was time to clean it.
Once I tried the self cleaning option on our oven and I thought the house was going to blow up. I didn’t feel comfortable staying with the fumes, and I didn’t feel comfortable leaving with the oven that dang hot. So I turned it off about 20 minutes in.
So now, I do it myself. Thankfully this stuff works darn good. :)
This stuff has a paste consistency, so I take a sponge (I just use dollar store sponges) and get a glob and start spreading:

Scrub it in good. It takes some muscle depending on what you’re cleaning. The oven = muscle.
A few minutes later, and you can tell the difference. The dirty is on the left, and the right is cleaned with Scour Off:

I love it!!
I used it on the inside as well, and didn’t get to the whole thing (we had to leave), but you can see the difference already:

You know I’m all about before and afters, so here you go:
  • I used to use stinky, caustic stuff, and never felt quite right about using it where I cook our FOOD. The Scour Off is nontoxic and contains no phosphates or harsh chemicals. 
  • I’ve tried almost every Shaklee cleaning product and love them all. I use the dish soap, hand soap and laundry detergent daily.
  • But these three are my faves:

The Scour Off of course, the dish wash detergent and the Basic H cleaning solution.
You just need SO little of that concentrate for cleaning:

I’ve had the same bottle of Basic H concentrate for two years. It would appear that I don’t clean because I have so much left, but I DO. I swear. You just need so little it lasts forever.
One bottle is 16 ounces and it’s $12. I figure I’ve saved at least $100 on cleaning products because of it. I still have a bit left, but even two years in that’s $6 a year to clean all of our windows, counters, appliances, bathrooms, stainless steel…everything.
It’s hard to beat. ;)
And I love the dish wash detergent too. It takes a couple little scoops and the dishes come out clean and spot-free every time.
I keep the powder in a little bowl on the sink:
Gotta make it pretty you know. ;)
Shaklee has been around foreva – 50 years now. They also sell nutrition, weight management and beauty items. I’m trying out their face cream and so far I love it!
My friend Bonnie is my distributor and she has an AWESOME blog with all kinds of cleaning tips and tutes. She shows how to mix the Basic H and talks more about what a GREAT deal they are here. (She is so dang cute!!)
There are a whole buncha deals going on right now, and you can see more about those here and here.
This weekend, my girl Bonnie is giving away 20 Basic H samples! That is 2-0!  One sample mixed with water makes a whole all-purpose cleaner bottle and a window cleaner bottle.
Did I mention they’ll probably last you all year? Well, if you’re a better cleaner than me, maybe not that long. Let’s not talk about that. 
Here’s how to enter to win one of 20 Shaklee samples:
