Healthy Cleaning on a Budget….Part 1

Would you like to go “Green” and use products that are biodegradable?  Would you like to use cleaning products that are safer for you and your family?  Would you prefer to use products that are non-toxic and have no harsh odors?  Would you prefer to use cleaning products that would not aggravate your allergies and/or asthma?

All this sounds great, but…..IT IS TOO EXPENSIVE!  Right?

I couponed and saved a lot on all my cleaning supplies.  I bought most of them at CVS for around a $1.00.  So to consider ordering something I cannot use a coupon with is just not realistic.  Let’s consider a typical CVS run for some name brand cleaners. (This is a typical scenario of how I could use sales and coupons, along with CVS Extra Care Bucks, to buy my cleaners).

2/$5.00 – Lysol Disinfecting Wipes (35 count) reg. $4.69
– COUPON $0.50/1
2/$5.00 – Lysol All-Purpose Cleaner (32 oz) reg. $4.99
– COUPON $0.25/1
2/$5.00 – Lysol Toilet Bowl Cleaner (24 oz) reg. #3.49
– COUPON $0.50/1
PLUS….receive $5.00 in Extra Care Bucks when you spend $15.00 (Lysol Products)

DEAL:
Buy two of each listed above
TOTAL : $15.00
COUPONS: -$2.50
EXTRA CARE BUCKS: $5.00

TOTAL:  $$7.50 for all 6 products!

Breakdown $1.25 for each product!  I know you are thinking that is pretty good!  But what if I told you that you could do BETTER financially and GO GREEN!!

Basic H2 All-Purpose Cleaner – (Cleans counters, appliances, floors, windows, mirrors, everything!  See this post for more detail.  Or Katie’s post for more information.)

Let’s Compare it to my scenario above:

Lysol All-Purpose Cleaner                                 Shaklee All-Purpose Cleaner
$1.25 (with coupons and sale)                              $10.25 (membership price)
32 oz.                                                                   16 oz
Use (per galloons) Straight from bottle             Use (per galloons) 2 teaspoons per galloon
Cost per Gallon $5.00 (4 x $1.25)                       Cost per Galloon $0.22
CANNOT be used on wood, windows,             Use different amounts to clean ANYTHING!
mirrors, cars, or furniture
Products Comparison

This is just Basic H2 Cleaner!  I use my Windows Bottle (only 2 drops per 16 oz. bottle) to clean windows, mirrors, wooden furniture, the inside of my car, and my LCD TVs and monitors (spray on a cloth first).  This means 2 drops of Basic H2 replaces Windex, Pledge, and Armor All in my home.  The All-Purpose bottle in my home is used to clean the kitchen counters, appliances, sink, bathrooms, spot clean floors, walls, and more.  This replaces Lysol Bathroom, Lysol Kitchen Cleaner, 409 Cleaner, and more!

The best part…..SAFE!  GREEN!  EFFECTIVE!  I purchased my All-Purpose Basic H2 May 2012.  Fifteen months later….yes 15 months later, and I still have HALF the bottle left.

Did I mention you can use this on your floors?  And to clean your car?

But Amber, I have to pay for shipping for this. Let’s say you JUST bought Basic H2 and did not divide the shipping among other products.
$10. 25 – Basic H2
$8.49 – Shipping
TOTAL – $18.74

That is still ONLY $0.39 per gallon of Basic H2!
