Better Life Cleaning Products Review & {GIVEAWAY!!}


Better Life makes cleaning products are environmentally friendly. Their cleaning products are free of petrochemicals and ethoxylates. They are entirely safe for people (including children) and pets because they are made from plants and vegetation.
I have to be honest, before I had my son, I wasn't too worried about what cleaning products I was using. I used dangerously strong chemicals because I didn't know any better. I did know that the products I formerly used would leave me with headaches, bleach stains on my clothes and carpet, and occasionally I would be short of breath or nauseous because I forgot to open a window while cleaning.
Why not have a Better Life? Using Better Life products makes cleaning easy because you don't have to worry about where your children are, you don't have to make sure all the windows are open, and you don't have to run outside for oxygen when you think you might pass out from fumes.
I received the following products in a fabulous 'Better Life' bag: what-EVER!, I Can See Clearly, WOW!, SIMPLY FLOORED!, Even The Kitchen Sink, TWIST Loofah Sponge (2), and the TWIST Euro Sponge.
The Better Life bag has six large compartments so each product stays in place. This bag is perfect to hang instead of having cleaning products where little hands can get to them.

what-EVER! was one of my favorite products. I love the Clary Sage and Citrus scent, it is very light and natural smelling. It is safe to use everywhere so I did! I used the cleaner in my kitchen, in my son's room, in my room, everywhere. I loved not having to worry about damaging anything or inhaling fumes while using this cleaner. It cleaned just like any other all-purpose cleaner, except without harming your body and the Earth. Why would you ever use any other all-purpose cleaner?
I Can See Clearly, WOW! was the glass cleaner. I thought it worked well and cleaned the
mirror without any streaks. Beyond that, I didn't think it really worked all that different from any other glass cleaner, but I did appreciate that it didn't have a strong chemical scent that other glass cleaners have. SIMPLY FLOORED! was the floor cleaner and it worked great on my hardwood floors. With a baby in the house, our floors are always dirty from the food he throws on the floor while eating (we are working on this problem) so we are always having to scrub the floors. I thought SIMPLY FLOORED! really helped make the job easier. It doesn't leave any waxy feeling on the floor, as it does not polish, it just cleans! Perfect.
Even The Kitchen Sink is a product everyone should have in their house. I actually used it to clean my bathroom sink and it worked so well. I have used other plant based cleaning products in the past and although I liked them, I never felt like they got the job done as well as I liked. Not so with the this sink cleaner. I had an orange ring around the base of my sink (don't judge) and the cleaner got it right up without me even having to put any elbow grease into it. So wonderful!

The sponges are not your average sponge. The Euro Sponge is 100% biodegradable, so although it is dishwasher safe and can be sterilized by boiling, you can find comfort that you are still being environmentally friendly if you choose to throw it out. The Loofah Sponge, which is also 100% biodegradable, is perfect for scrubbing on one side and great for wiping and absorbing on the other.

WIN IT!!
