Help the Planet and Your Budget by Going Green

April is Earth Month and all month long I will be video logging green tips to help you save money and the planet.  Today, I am sharing tips for a greener bathroom.  One of the tips is to switch to using gentler cleaners.  To clean my bathroom I use a mixture of home made cleaners and also commercial cleaners.

Today I want to give you a chance to win some of these gentler cleaners.  I am giving away a bundle of Clorox Green Works products.  Green Works products are biodegradable and free of petrochemicals.

To enter this giveaway all you need to do is visit the Green Works Website.  Then come back and leave me a comment sharing which one of their products you are interested in trying.  This giveaway ends Friday 4/3 at 5PM.  US. Addresses only please.

    I would love to try the glass cleaner. Actually, i’d like to try them all. Eventually maybe I can coupon my way into the green cleaners. One cleaner at a time as I run out of the ones I have now. I love the fact that they are produced using green ways to run the factory’s.

  • Ray Dudley

    Thanks for the chance of entering your give-away! I’ve been following your site via RSS for a few days and LOVE IT! Thanks for all the work you do to keep it up. I would like to try their glass cleaner. My wife owns a small cleaning biz here in NH and I’d like for here to use less chemicals.
    Thanks again!

    I’m really interested in trying ALL of them, haha…but if I have to pick just one, I’d love to try the surface and glass variety.

  • Christy L

    Hi–I would love to try their All Purpose Cleaner. We already use the Greenworks toilet bowl cleaner and bathroom cleaner–they work great, and no nasty fumes!

  • Christina

    I want to try the all-purpose cleaner and the biodegradable wipes. I’ve tried several “green” cleaners and just keep going back and forth as far as what I like. I have yet to try the green works line from clorox.

    I want to try the bathroom cleaner. I’ve been wanting to clean up our cleaning products, but we have well water that leaves rust stains. I’ve tried a few homemade cleaners, but they hardly did anything for the stain. I’m crossing my fingers that this might work, at least a little. 🙂

    I didn’t realize they made wipes. That will be great to try next. I am using the dish soap right now and think it works great. It doesn’t seem to be as hard on my hands or have an overpowering smell which is nice. Thanks for the give-away!

    marin (dot) obrien {at} g mail

  • Lil

    I love your site…it’s a daily stop. I’d love to try the Wipes. I’ve been wanting to look into the Green products but time and money always get in the way. I’m concerned they don’t work as well.
    -Lil

  • I love the tip in your video with the bottle of water weighed down with rocks for the toilet. Great idea. Thanks!

  • Monica

    I would like to try the cleaning wipes. I already use the regular ones but would like to try the natural ones, especially since I have a little one who always wants to help mommy.

  • MaryAnn

    Great giveaway! I would love to try the Green Works toilet bowl cleaner – I am pretty happy with my homemade cleaners for surfaces, but I haven’t been able to figure out a less toxic solution for the potty (which, thank God, is now getting a lot more use – yay for successful potty training!). Thanks, Mercedes!

  • Cranky old woman

    The natural dilutable cleaner for sure!! Thanks for a chance to maybe try out some of these products! I have been wanting to for a while, but have not as of yet. And thanks as well for the video, I now feel as if I really know you!

  • Maria K

    Mercedes,
    I am always looking for economical ways to lower my cost on cleaning products. What mixture do you use of baking soda for cleaning the bathroom?

    Thanks for the chance to enter the giveaway..I could use the cleaning wipes.

  • Debbie

    The natural dilutable cleaner and all-purpose cleaner and the first ones I would like to use. However, ALL of the products sound great and are definitely worth trying.

  • Jill Hayes

    I would like to try the wipes! Thanks so much, great website!!

  • Summer

    I would like to try the dilutable cleaner…if it works like it has bleach in it, but doesn’t…THAT’S AWESOME!!!!

    Thank you!!

  • I’m digging the wipes. We moved away from paper towels to help with our foot print, but there are times when I need a kitchen appropriate wet wipe. These would be great to try!!

    ~Allie

  • jj jayne

    the wipes. so easy to use around the kitchen

  • Daria

    Haven’t tried the products yet, this would be a great chance to start! Thanks for the giveaway.

  • Tara

    I’d love to try the dilutable cleaner. Their products look like they are really great. I love that you do these give-a-way’s. Thanks!

  • Terri

    I’m skeptical that they actually work, so I’d probably go with the dish cleaner. Thanks for the chance to try them!

  • Grace

    I’d like to try the natural dilutable cleaner.

    I’m not into wipes, I think that’s one simple way to Go Green. Use less disposable (you fill in the blank). W

    hy are we spending so much money on things we know we’re going to throw away? I’ll bet it’s cheaper to run a big load of rags through the washing machine than it is to buy multiple packages of disposable wipes.

    I’ve got the same opinion when it comes to paper towels, paper plates, etc. We don’t live without them at my house but they are used very sparingly! And I’d go for paper over plastic at least paper is biodegradable.

  • Loo

    I am enjoying your blog. It takes much of the hassle out of keeping my wallet greener! I’d love to try GreenWorks products. Living in a small house, I would go for the All Purpose Cleaner. Why take up space with a myriad of cleaners when I can find one that does multiple jobs? Thanks!

  • Shelley

    The wipes look really great and are in such a cute bottle. Thanks for the chance to win.

  • Megan

    I would LOVE to try the wipes.

    thanks!

  • Liz

    I’m interested in trying the natural bathroom cleaner. I have a bathtub and I like to clean it everyday before I take a bath but I don’t like cleaning it with harsh cleaning sprays. Makes me feel like I am taking a bath in chemicals!!

  • Melissa

    I have just recently committed to switch to only all natural cleaners in our home, so this would be a great step for getting started. I am most interested in trying the all purpose spray or wipes, but I also plan to try the bathroom cleaners for the tub since we have a baby who sits in it every day. I am so glad companies are finally going toward chemical free cleaners!

  • Tamara Bennington

    I would love to try their All-Purpose Cleaner and the Toilet Bowl Cleaner. So happy that a company that I have purshased many of their regular cleaning products from is changing to a more enviromentally friendly approach.

    I’d love to try the wipes…thanks for the chance to win! 🙂

  • J. Hanback

    I would love to try the All-Purpose cleaner. I get so tired of lugging around ten different cleaners to do various jobs, and spending money on individual products. This would consolidate the need for various products as well as help the environment.

    Thanks for the opportunity to share our product interest; for sharing the site with us, and for helping us all save money!

  • Keli

    Thanks for the chance of entering your give away! I’ve been following your site for a few days and love IT! Thanks for all the work you do. I would like to try their wipes. I have 2 small boys and I am constantly cleaning up their messes! Thanks again!!

  • dymphna

    i would like to purchase the feel good wipes

  • Martha

    My 10-year old is always pushing us to “go green” … bless her heart! I would love the “all purpose cleaner” or the wipes, as that’s what we use most here. Thanks for all the wonderful information and money-saving tips … don’t know how I managed before your site came along !!! 🙂

  • Christina

    I would love to use the wipes – my kids love to clean the bathroom with wipes, and knowing that they were completely natural would be a huge plus!!!

  • Danielle Walker

    I am very interested in the natural bathroom cleaner. With little kids the thought of using something without harsh chemicals on their tub is very enticing.

  • Casey

    I am interested in the all purpose cleaner. I like that you can buy the replacement vial instead of a whole new bottle. They are cheaper too. I did not realize how many different cleaners they had until I looked at the website.

  • The Natural All Purpose Cleaner. Thanks!
