What’s Under My Sink?
As a greener cleaning mom, I use safe, natural cleaning products and avoid toxic chemicals when cleaning my home. In this new weekly feature, I will spotlight a household cleaning product under my sink.
Today, I will spotlight Basic H2 Organic Super Cleaning Concentrate by Shaklee.
• Phosphate Free
• PH Balanced
How I Clean My Kitchen
with BASIC H2
I mix 1/4 tsp. Basic H2 in 16 oz.
spray bottle of water (or 2 t. in 1 gal. water) to instantly
clean my kitchen counters, doors, woodwork, walls, etc.
Cost: Basic H2 is 22 cents per gallon vs. Fantastic Heavy Duty Cleaner at $9.48 per gallon
That’s less than making your own household cleaners from products like vinegar and baking soda!
FLOORS: I mop my floors with 1 tsp. Basic H2 to a gallon of
water. Wring mop dry, wipe up spots and dirt, leaving
floor shining and clean. This replaces mop cleaners which can be toxic.
MIRRORS, WINDOWS, and GLASS TOPS
I just add 1-2 drops of Basic H2
to a pint of water or put in a 16 oz. spray nozzle unit (or
1/8 t. in 1 gal. water). I use a microfiber window cleaning cloth to wipe dry. No streaks!
This window cleaner cost under a penny a gallon vs. Windex which is $10 a gallon! See my Shaklee cost comparison chart.

Imagine your 5 year old little boy begins coughing and coughing and you can’t make it stop. You go to the emergency room and you are told he has the precursor to asthma. You ask yourself, does anyone in my family have asthma? Anyone in my husband’s family? And the answer is not only NO, but there is no history of asthma in either family going back 4 generations. Then you think what could cause this? What in my environment could cause this?
Then you research and discover some alarming facts:
- 1 in 13 school age children has asthma
- Asthma rates in children under 5 increased 160%
- More than 9 out of every 10 suspected poison exposures occur at home with household products.
And…there is a direct correlation between the increase in childhood asthma and the increase in toxic chemicals in the home!
This is Sloan’s story. Watch this video and listen to her tell it in her own words.
Who do you know that has children with chronic allergies and/or asthma? Share this message with them. Let’s not let the little children suffer anymore when we can make a difference by becoming “Greener Cleaning Moms.”
