Get Clean for the New Year and last day for FREE MEMBERSHIP! Plus How to Clean Rust and Hard Water Spots!!!


$3,400 Worth of Products for Under $160!

It all starts with this kit because it contains mostly everything you need to clean your house, your laundry and your dishes! Not only does it come packaged with all the cleaning products, it also comes with all the tools you need to use them.  Three spray bottles, dispenser bottle with dropper tip to mix just drops of these special concentrated cleaners. Even pumps, measuring spoons, cleaning cloths, sponges and a scrubber pad are included. Shaklee has thought about everything but the best part of course are the products!

So let's look at each one:

Shaklee Basic H 2 Organic Super Cleaning Concentrate

It made 6,900 bottles of Windex before it became double concentrated! Now one 16oz bottle makes 48 gallons of super-safe cleaning power and it is nontoxic to you and the environment!  I showed you more info about it here and showed other ways it is used here.

Shaklee Basic H2 Organic Super Cleaning Wipes  (not included in starter kit)

Not only are these wipes biodegradable, they are 60% better than Pledge Wipes and streaks less on your windows than Windex Multi-Surface Wipes with Vinegar.  I love using these!

Shaklee Scour Off Heavy-Duty Paste (not included in starter kit)

It cleans burnt-on food in your oven as well as stuck-on messes anywhere in your home.  But the best part about using this great product is that it will not remove the hair in your nose because it is a paste, not a powder, so there is no dust in the air. But it is so powerful that it is used to scrub the boat decks for the Wild Dolphin Project and safe enough to protect our oceans because it too is biodegradable!  To see ways that I used it click here.

Shaklee Dish Wash Automatic Concentrate

If you use the Cascade 45-oz powder to clean your dishes, you will need 2 1/2 45oz boxes of it to even come close to the 48 loads that one 32oz Dish Wash can clean. It is also safe for our environment and you will never need to clean your dishes first before loading them in your dishwasher! I never did like cleaning them twice.  I showed posts about this here.

Shaklee Dish Wash Concentrate

If you like to wash your dishes at the sink, you will love to do it with our Dish Wash product. It is so concentrated that you only need a few drops to wash a pile of greasy dishes but yet it is like having a hand beauty treatment at the same time! It is 70% more effective on cutting grease than Method and Seventh Generation. Love it! :)

Shaklee Fresh Laundry Concentrated (Liquid)

Not only does this laundry concentrate clean your clothes, but it also works great as a pre-spotter. It not only outperforms leading detergents, it also outperforms big-name spot removers! It is 30% better at removing soil and stains than All Small and Mighty and removes stains even better than Shout and Spray'n Wash!  Read about my sister’s allergy story here and Wedding dress story here.

Shaklee Fresh Laundry Concentrate (Power) (not included in starter kit)

The 5.5 lb box will clean 88 loads which is 43% more loads than the same size Tide Original. Our 14lb box will do 224 loads in case you have a few children living at home! All of Shaklee’s laundry products work for HE appliances too! :)

Shaklee Fresh Laundry Concentrate Fragrance Free (Power) (not included in starter kit)

If you like to have your laundry clean without any fragrance, try our Hypoallergenic Natural cleaner. It will give you the same clean wash without any fragrance added. 

Shaklee Soft Fabric Concentrate (not included in starter kit)

Use only one-third the amount of softener compared to other products such as Downy, without the health risk. It is clean smelling and silky to reduce wrinkles and to take out cling better than what you may be using now.  But it gets even better because Soft Fabric is Nontoxic and a natural softener.

Shaklee Soft Fabric Fragrance free Dryer Sheets

If you like using dryer sheets instead of the liquid, you will love using these sheets. These are really innovative! First they are veggie-based to keep them natural and biodegradable, and then they break into two separate sheets while in the dryer to be sure they do a great job in the balanced distribution!  Plus, you can throw the whole thing in the recycling bin when you finish using them! 

Shaklee Nature Bright Laundry Booster and Stain Remover

No need to use chlorine to get stains out when you get do it with natural enzymes and active oxygen found in our Nature Bright. It out cleans OxiClean on grass stains by 50% and you can also use it in your clothes to get them really bright.... the "Nature Bright" way!

Shaklee Concentrated Germicide  (not included in starter kit)

On quart of this concentrate makes up to 64 gallons - it's also EPA registered.  Bacteria, fungi, and viruses can wreak havoc on your family's health and safety. Used as directed, Basic-G tackles over 40 of these pesky microbes, including several animal viruses. That makes it an excellent choice for use in the kitchen, bathroom, or pet area.  See more info here.

Shaklee Hand Wash Concentrate (not included in starter kit)

Yes it cleans your hands but it does a whole lot more! It has wheat germ oil to moisturize, soy protein to condition, balm mint and gentian extracts to soothe, and juniper and spruce extracts to energize. After all that cleaning, you deserve a break at the spa hand treatment center, so enjoy it!  Plus, you only need to use a small amount! :)

Of course, I wouldn’t post something without  before and after pictures, lol!

I am going to show you some pictures of things that I cleaned at someone else’s house with one of my favorite products-Scour Off.

2010 09 06_8861 

Do you have hard water stains?

2010 09 06_8865

Scour Off gets them right out!

2010 09 06_8867

It also does a great job cleaning your sink!  Before…

2010 09 06_8862


  2010 09 06_8866

Here is a close up.  Before.

2010 09 06_8863 

After.  This is an old sink and you can see all that brown is gone now.

2010 09 06_8868

Another before.

2010 09 06_8864

     Another after!

2010 09 06_8869 

Let’s move to the bathroom now!

More water stains…eww!

2010 09 06_8871

After…much better.  I did have to rinse the “scour off” off after.

2010 09 06_8879

  Let’s get dirty now!  This is a really old plastic toilet cover.

2010 09 06_8874

After.  I got most of that gross stuff off.  It looks way better now! :)

2010 09 06_8881

Here is behind the seat.  Before.

2010 09 06_8875 

After!  Basic H and G could do this too!

2010 09 06_8882

I saved the BEST for last!!! 

Do you have hard rusty water that leaves bad marks on your toilet? 

I found that Scour Off is one of the only things that will get it off.

2010 09 06_8873  

After!!!  AMAZING!  You can just tell they have bad water because it is a little orange.  I have received a lot of great feedback from people loving how Scour Off gets off rust and water marks so I wanted to show you for myself!

2010 09 06_8880  

I hope you agree that saving $3,400 in cleaning products makes perfect sense. But maybe even more important is the fact that by you using them you will also be doing your part in saving our environment.   This is a great time to start using natural cleaners for the new year!

So be sure to order your starter kit today and save your health, your wealth and our environment plus get FREE membership! A membership gets you 15% off all Shaklee products and there are no minimums to keep your membership! :) I suggest adding the other products that I mentioned above because I LOVE them and think you will too! :)  I added it up, if you buy the starter kit plus the extra items (only one laundry concentrate), it comes to a little less than $160 (member’s price) not including S/H and tax.  That is not bad for everything and these products last for a long time! :)

Dec. 31st is the last day for Free Membership!

I Cleaned Under My Stove

2010 12 13_1461

Mondays are my day to wash my floors and on Monday, when I was washing, the sun was hitting my floor just right because I was able to see all the junk under my stove!  It was disgusting!!!   Immediately, I pulled out my oven and had to see what was under there.  I realized that I had not cleaned under there since we painted our kitchen a couple of YEARS ago…Opps!

This is what it looked like.

2010 12 13_1457

After I vacuumed and washed it Basic H, it looked like this!!!  YAY!!!!!  It’s glowing again!

2010 12 13_1460

This was also disgusting!  EWWW!!  Something must of spilled on the side of the oven onto the side of our cabinet.

 2010 12 13_1458

Again, I just sprayed and wiped with my trusty Organic Basic H and viola!

2010 12 13_1459  

Am I the only one who gets excitement from a clean floor under my oven?

You know a lot of dust gets stored under there and could spread to the rest of the floor. 

Plus, isn’t having things stuck under there a fire hazard?

How often do you clean under your stove?

I challenge you to clean under your stove today and see what it looks like.  It only took less 10 minutes!

Happy Cleaning!

Adverse Growing Conditions

Looking back on 2010 we did nothing but battle adverse growing conditions.  The problem is battling these types of conditions can be rather difficult.  A dry growing condition can be compensated by extra watering, irrigation and shading but a too wet of a growing condition if difficult to battle.  Raised beds help somewhat but traditional row gardening is at the mercy of the extra moisture. 

Shaklee Dish Wash Review

Hi everyone! I hope that you all had a great Christmas!!! :)  I had a wonderful time with my family.  We went sledding, drank eggnog, ate popcorn, watched movies, opened presents, played games, visited my mom’s and my husband’s grandma’s house.  We had a great time! 

I also forgot to mention that I am skipping my Twice Owned Tuesday party this week…but I will be back next week with my queens!

Today, I wanted to share this Shaklee review that Leah from Flawlessly Human wrote from her experience using Shaklee products.

Leah is a newer blogger that loves her family,  decorating, cleaning, saving money and cooking.  This is what she wrote…

Product review: Shaklee

In my ever expanding Greening I finally bit the bullet decided to try Shaklee products.

I received my package today and I don't know what's making me more excited, new green cleaning products or the fact that I'm using one of Oprah’s favorite things. heehee

I ordered the Get Clean Starter Kit.

This statement sold me:

You'd have to spend more than $3,400* to get the same amount of clean found in the Get Clean® Starter Kit!

And when you purchase the Get Clean Starter Kit you also make a positive impact on the planet:

Keep (49 kilograms) 108 pounds of packaging waste from landfills

Eliminate 113 kilograms (248 pounds) of greenhouse gases

The first thing I used was the Dish Wash Automatic Concentrate.

I'm in LOVE!!!!

No funky smell.

No residue.

Sparkling clean dishes out of a dishwasher I had written off as a piece.

I've been hand washing nearly everything - but no more!

Check out these results.

Before Fork on the left was washed in dishwasher using other dishwasher detergents.

Fork on right is after Shaklee Dish Wash Automatic Concentrate.

There's a huge difference in the shine and residue left behind.

The difference for me is night and day!

I'm totally impressed!

I'm loving the products so much I've decided to become a member.

I was considering becoming a Norwex rep but their products are so expensive and I'm not that happy with the products I've purchased from them.

Shaklee is relatively inexpensive. The products smell great and if Oprah backs the product how can you go wrong?

I'm no longer afraid to put a fork in my mouth from my dishwasher.

I couldn't be happier with the results.

She also wants to add…

I also need to mention that I have VERY hard water and I haven't been able to get ANYTHING else to work but this. It's a huge relief!

Doesn’t her dishes look sparkling clean?

Thank you Leah for writing this!

I am glad that you LOVE Get Clean products as much as I do.

Please visit her blog and tell her how great her dishes looks!


I know I don’t write about Shaklee dish concentrate liquid and powder but I LOVE them!!!! :)

For washing dishes in the sink…A few drops clean your greasy dishes, and this fresh-scented formula is soft on hands.  Seriously….I ONLY need a drop!

For automatic dishwashers… This natural and biodegradable  formula dissolves quickly to release cleaning agents early in the wash cycle.  This stuff does not suds up and leave a residue, which is great!!!  I NEVER have to wash a dish before I put it in the dishwasher and I NEVER use toxic chemicals to get my dishes clean.  Yippee! :)

I LOVE THIS STUFF…they are my life savers because I can save time on washing dishes: no-prewashing or re-washing!!!!! 

Plus they are natural and half the price of Seventh Generation! 

If you use the right amount of powder, it costs you less than 20 cents a load.  I actually use about half that because it still works and I am cheap, lol!


If you love Shaklee and want to be featured please let me know.

(I did not ask  Leah to write this or compensate her in anyway.  She is a satisfied customer!)

Constructing a Garden Pond

All garden pools regardless of their size are constructed pretty much the same way.  You can use a rigid, pre-formed black pond liner or black pond liner however if you want to save a bit of money you can use a pre-formed kiddy pool.  Ideally the pond should be at least 3 feet deep at its deepest but if over wintering fish the pond should be deeper.  The pond excavation site should be leveled


I had such a great response with my BEST OF 2010 BLOG PARTY that I thought I would show you my cleaning posts all summed up into ONE HUGE (the longest post you ever read) POST!  I think this is all anyway, lol, I might of missed some.  Anyway.  I provided links to the actual post.  As you probably already know, I am a Shaklee Distributor.  I have been using Shaklee products since I was younger because my mom started us on them.  I LOVE SHAKLEE so now I share it with others.  I showed you my TOP 10 SHAKLEE products here but I want to show you the different ways to you the non-toxin cleaning line called Get Clean.  I am still impressed with these products after all this time, plus it’s saves us money and helps keep our home toxic free.

This first before and after is obviously my oven door.  I took a wet sponge and dipped it into my Scour Off Paste and scrubbed for about 5 minutes…..and…….

2010 06 11_4750

  it turned out beautiful!!!  Just like new, without any harsh fumes (oven cleaners are one of the worst for your health) and it only took 5 minutes!!!!

2010 06 11_4752

Here is my fridge. I have no clue how it got this bad.  My kids are learning to get there own water this summer and they are always making a mess with the water, plus, if I don’t keep it locked, my 18 month old can push the water button and make a huge mess and FAST!!!

2010 06 11_4749

I just sprayed this with my all-purpose formula of Basic H and wipe with my window and mirror micro-fiber cloth.

2010 06 11_4753

Here is another example of doing the same thing on my dishwasher.  Basic H work awesome on stainless steal and it leaves no residue.

2010 06 12_4720 2010 06 12_4721

Ok, here is my kitchen table after a party with a lot of kids (we have those often.)

2010 05 25_4264

I just sprayed my degreaser formula of Basic H and wiped with my all purpose  micro-fiber cloth.

2010 05 25_4267

That turned out great except now you can see that I need to paint over that cup mark, lol.

I did the same thing on this chair.  Basic H is totally safe to use on furniture and painted furniture.

2010 05 25_4265

I does a great job of cutting grease.

2010 05 25_4266

   Ok, this is a little embarrassing!!! I was in my bathroom getting ready and the kids were quiet….I little too quiet, so I opened the door to find my boys drawing on my chair with a PEN.   ARGH!!!!

2010 05 28_4057

So I sprayed my degreaser formula of Basic H and let sit…..

2010 05 28_4058

  and wiped and it ALL came out perfectly.  Basic H is safe to use on fabrics.

2010 06 25_5280

Here is a picture of both so you know that I didn’t just switch the chairs, lol!

2010 06 25_5281

2010 07 12_7255

I just sprayed all-purpose Basic H and wiped down with my all-purpose micro-fiber cloth.

2010 07 12_7256

Basic H works GREAT on windows, mirrors and glass.  Do you see how foggy this lamp is here?

2010 07 18_7510

I sprayed with my windows and mirrors formula of Basic H and wiped with my super window/mirror microfiber cloth and it turned out beautifully!  I can also make a gallon of window cleaner with Basic H for LESS than 1 cent!!!!

2010 07 18_7517

         Here is  a picture of my sink with a huge rust stain on it.  Yup, I came home from my vacation to Canada to find that I left my cast iron pan in the sink.  It was there for a WHOLE week.  I had the whole house spotless before we left, don’t ask me how I forgot this one!  Anyway, Scour Off was there to save my day (and my sink!)  I did have to scrub a little harder than normal but it only took a couple of minutes until it looked like…..

2010 07 10_7324

this!!!!  Look at it shine now!!!!

2010 07 10_7325

Here is a full view, if you look carefully, you can see the Scour Off that I used.
