Day 1 Kitchen Challenge: How I Clean My Sink Without Toxic Cleaners

I used to use those spray and wipe products from the grocery store to clean my sinks until I was introduced to Shaklee’s Basic H and Shaklee Basic G nearly 20  years ago.  I believed the lies the commercials told me about needing those harsh chemicals to kill the germs and keep my home clean.  But, not anymore.    Now, I understand the health consequences of using toxic cleaners.

Introducing the Weekly Greener Cleaning Kitchen Challenge: Week 1,

So, today I am going to challenge you to clean your sink without a toxic cleaner. Complete the task and come back here and link your results here if you’d like to share your success with the world! You have one week to complete the task, take the photos, write the blog post and come back and link up!

Be sure to subscribe to my blog by email so you are reminded about the next challenge next week.

Here we go!

First, take a picture of the product you would normally use to clean your sink.

Since I’ve used Basic H2 by Shaklee for nearly 20 years, I don’t have a picture of what I used in the past.  I used Formula 409 and Fantastik sprays.

Now, take a picture of your sink before.

Here’s a picture of my porcelain sink.  It stains easily.


Next, I sprayed my sink with Basic H2 All purpose spray and then covered with Get Clean Scour Off Heavy Duty Paste. I let it soak for 2 minutes and then used a green scrubby to scrub the sink stains.  Then I rinsed it and whah-lah— all shiny and clean and no toxins to breathe!

You may want to make your own sink cleaner by mixing 1 part white vinegar and 1 part water. You can make a scrubbing paste with baking soda and water. Click here to read more about making your own products.

These work well, but in my opinion cost more than using Shaklee. (It may be time for me to disclose that I am a Shaklee Independent distributor and I do have a bias.) But, you probably already figured that out!

Take a Picture of your Sink “After” you clean it without toxic chemicals!

Watch this video and see how “The Small Act of Scouring the Sink Can Become a Small Part of Changing the World.”

  1. I will be cleaning my sink later today or tomorrow (it does need it). I don’t have Shaklee and I am not sure if they are being sold in Canada. I have to research that, but I will make my own cleaners and see.

  2. Awesome! Let us know how the home recipes work. Shaklee is sold in Canada and I can help you with that if you like.

  3. I use vinegar and water on the sink and it works really well! I’ve never used Shaklee products before and would love to try it.

    • Ameena,
      Thanks for stopping by my blog. I hope you’ll try some natural cleaners and do the challenge with us. Shaklee is available in California but only through independent distributors. In this way, Shaklee helps support moms who want to own and operate their own turnkey business while raising a family. Anyway, if you’d like to order some products to try. I have an online store and would be honored to have you support my business. I offer excellent customer support and can help you save money. http://wellnessplans.net
