Giveaway: Shaklee

Have you ever heard of Shaklee? Until recently, I hadn't. Shaklee is a group of independent distributors committed to green and healthy products such as nutrition and weight loss items, cleaning products, and health and beauty items.

I love the mission and marketing of Shaklee. "You can’t find a single Shaklee product on the store shelf. You find it through conversation. In a living room. On Facebook®. Over a cup of coffee. In an email from a friend. You find it when someone like me believes in it so strongly, they just have to tell you about it."
Alexandra, an independent consultant, first introduced me. You can get to know her here! She includes a list of her favorite products.

Here are a few things that I wouldn't mind having myself!


Alexandra is giving away one of her favorite items! A sample of the Basic H2 Organic Super Cleaning Concentrate



It can make one 16oz bottle of window cleaner and one 16oz bottle of all-purpose cleaner.

Just in time for spring cleaning!!

  1. I just learned this tip, but to clean the microwave put a cup of water with the lemon juice of one lemon in it. Microwave for 10 min and let it stand for 3 min. Then just wipe down. Super easy!

  9. Hey Laura! :) Our friend just introduced us to Shaklee as well, and it does seem really great! I would really like to try some products soon too! :) As far as my Best Spring Cleaning Tip, I definitely have one recommendation that everyone should do at least once per year (and I do recommend making it apart of your spring cleaning)! Go through all of your clothes, shoes, accessories, etc. in your closets, dressers, etc. and take out any items that you have not worn in the past year (if there are a FEW things that you cannot stand to part with, make sure you wear them during the next year, or else they need to go next Spring Cleaning - two years is probably too long to keep something that you do not really wear!). As long as they are still in good condition, donate them (like to a Goodwill Store) so that someone else can wear and enjoy your lovely things! :)

  10. I don't know if this classifies as spring cleaning, but I normally using just baking soda and water to clean out my oven. I forget where I learned this tip but it's fantastic. Just sprinkle baking soda in your oven, spray it with water (from a spray bottle). Get it fairly wet, let it set for a little while if it dries too much wet it again. After an hour or so go back with a wet rag and clean it out. Hope that helps.

  11. ooh! 1. Pre-plan your "cleaning". before you set out heaps and bags of messes, draw, diagramm, or list how you will clean. This works, I promise! Even if you start out in one area of the house (i.e. kitchen) start at one corner and work your way around. As you go along, you should have bags pre-labeled as "toss", "salvation army", "giveaway" or "repair".

    2. Give yourself a little treat after each room. be it a break, a candy bar or cold lemonade. You'll get motivated to finish the next!

    I am currently doing my spring cleaning and enjoying every minute of it!

  12. I do best if I make a cleaning plan. I tend to get distracted and hop from task to task without finishing if I don't plan to do one specific thing at a time.

  13. I would suggest listening to music while you clean. It helps time go by faster for me. The only other great tip that I have is make sure you clean everything else in the bathroom or any other room before you clean the floor. I know common sense right...you'd be surprised how many times I've failed to do this. :)

  17. i just love transferring the warm clothes to the back of the closet-it really makes me feel like spring is here! and maybe i'll make a little donations pile out of things i haven't worn all winter.

  23. I use a mixture of vinegar and water to clean my windows. And I use newspaper instead of paper towels. Eco friendly and frugal!

  25. Baking soda! It's a miracle worker and can be used to clean, get rid of nasty smells, baking (of course) and plenty more. Thanks for the chance to win.
