Shaklee Corporation: Healthy Nutrition, Healthy Planet {Review}

Sometimes I feel like there is so much talk about "being healthy" that I don't know where to begin.

Is it more important to start with what we put into our bodies like our food and our vitamins? Or is it better to think about what we put on our bodies like our beauty products, soaps, shampoos, and more? Or what about the environments that we live in and the items that we choose to keep them clean?

Sometimes it all makes my head spin.

But that's why when I'm introduced to one company that has decades of experience in making our bodies, our homes and our planet a healthier place, it makes me stop and take notice. And when I mention the name to anyone who is already familiar and they rave about the results that they have had, well, then I definitely want to learn more about Shaklee.

ShakleeStarted in 1956 by Dr. Forrest Shaklee, the products that Shaklee now offers span all ages and aspects of our lives. From the health and care of our children to natural and effective products for the home to renowned items for weight loss and nutrition, this is one name that can keep your family safe inside and out... and is guaranteed to do so.

I always appreciate companies that make it known that if Shakleeyou're not completely satisfied, you can go right ahead and return products with ease. It not only demonstrates great customer service, but just how much they stand behind each and every item they sell. But when it comes to Shaklee, it seems doubtful that once you have made the step to be a part of their impressive movement that you would want to stop.

So, what is Shaklee all about? Taking their status as the number one natural nutrition company in the U.S., they are committed to making only products that are green, safe, and effective. With no animal testing, a net zero impact on the environment, and hundreds of millions of dollars spent on research and development of their products, Shakleeall you have to do is decide if you want to start with nutrition, weight, beauty or your home and Shaklee will have just what you need to get started on improving your life.

For me, it is my home. In the past few years we have made some great positive changes to eliminate chemicals... but we're still a fair distance from what I would call a "healthy home." By opening just about any cupboard, I can find cleaners with unpronounceable ingredients that make me cringe when thinking about using them around my children.

Instead, I can now clean safely, effectively and affordably with Shaklee's Basic H2 Organic Super Cleaning Concentrate, Get Clean Spray Bottles, Scour Off Heavy Duty Paste, Super Microfiber Cleaning Cloth, Super Microfiber Window Cloth, Squeeze Bottle with Dropper Tip, and Miracle Scrubber Pad.

Shaklee cleaning productsOne of Shaklee's most versatile and impressive products, right away I realized that the Basic H2 Organic Super Cleaning Concentrate can take the place of just about all of our previous cleaners. For use on dirt, grease, and grime on walls, windows, countertops, floors, appliances, furniture, and more, this liquid is fully nontoxic and safe for just about anywhere.

Plus, when Shaklee says that the Basic H2 is "super-concentrated," they really mean it. By diluting anywhere from a drop to a teaspoon, one 16-ounce bottle of this cleaner is equivalent to 5,824 bottles of 26 ounce Windex.

Does that number make your jaw drop, too? 5,824 bottles of chemical-filled cleaner replaced with one single bottle (retailing for $12.15 or even less if you purchase a Shaklee membership) that is safe enough for not only around my kids, but to be used by my kids.

The combination of the Basic H2, the Super Microfiber Window Cloth and 4-year-old cleaning excitement have given us our cleanest windows yet!

The Get Clean Spray Bottles are the perfect accompaniment for the Basic H2, as they have the instructions printed right on them for making an all-purpose cleaner, window cleaner or degreaser so that they'll be ready and waiting to be pulled out to make my house spotless.

Big Sister E and I have used the Basic H2 to scrub the windows, mirrors, tables, counters and much more clean and have been thrilled with the results each time. This is one powerful cleaner that can be grabbed at any time and I know we won't have to worry about fumes, streaks or residue. It has been great!

But when I want an even deeper clean for stuck-on messes, burnt-on food or grout that actually resembles its original color, I turn to Shaklee's Scour Off Heavy Duty Paste.

Made from natural mineral abrasives and biodegradable cleaning agents, Scour Off does not contain chlorine, bleach or dye and is completely nontoxic. By using a little bit on the Miracle Scrubber Pad, I've been able to get everything from glass to porcelain to my stovetop sparkling clean without the use of chemicals!

With a huge line of products to help make life for you, your family, your home and your world a better place, Shaklee cares deeply about health and safety. And, as their amazing natural products can't be found on store shelves but instead only sold by individual distributors who believe 100% in the results that Shaklee can provide, you can always find a knowledgeable and caring answer to any of your questions.

If it is time to make a difference in your life with the products that you use for yourself, your family, and your home, visit Shaklee today!

Thanks for a great review of Basic H and Scour Off. Been using both products for years. I put my son (who is now 13) to work years ago helping me clean with Basic H. For a little boy it's sort of like a squirt gun and I never had to worry about what chemicals he was breathing. Now that he is a bit older he has graduated to cleaning the kitchen sink with scour off.
