Help the Planet and Your Budget: Greener Cleaning

In the last week of my Earth Month Series, I am v-logging about homemade cleaners.   I have mentioned before that I switched to using homemade cleaners almost two years ago.  As a stay at home mom, my children are with me 99% of the time I am cleaning.  I didn’t want to expose them to the smell a lot of commercial cleaners bring with them. Make sure to watch the video for recipes for homemade cleaners.

    I would like to try the scrubbers!

  • I have already tried the sponges and would really like to try the scrubbers!

  • Katie Grant

    I think the expanding sponge will be perfect for me. I use a sponge to clean my dishes and counter tops. I love that it is compact to reduce the amount of packaging and then expands in use. That is great and the fact that the packaging itself is from recycled materials is wonderful too! I can’t wait to try these new earth-friendlier products!

  • sarah

    Perfect timing, not only for Earth Day but also for my big move! The scrubbers would come in handy for everything from the floors to the oven to the tub.

  • The soap-loaded scrubbers sound handy!

  • Kirsten

    I love the idea of the sponge – and it’s even better that it can outlast SO many rolls of paper towels!! We go through a lot of those, so it’d be great to cut down on that!!

  • I can’t wait to try all of these products, but the non-scratch scrub sponge sounds like it would be great to scrub the tiles on the wall of my shower/tub. The absorbent sponges and cloths would be great to clean up spills from my 5 and 6 year old kiddies!!

    Hi! I love these products. I would love the natural fiber scrubbers. What a great thing to use… fiber from an agave plant. Amazing!
    Thanks for the opportunity!

    I think it’s really interesting that they can make a sponge out of recycled paper (the soft sponge). I’d like to see how well it holds up to the messes my toddler & preschooler create. Thanks for your blog–always a hit!

  • fran

    The natural fiber non scratch scour pads would be great for my husband when he does the tire rims on the car. Thanks, Mercedes.

    I think the sponges would work great for me. Pretty sweet that they are biodegradable.

  • Denise

    I would really like to try the soap-loaded scrubbers. So handy to grab, ready to go. I a going to keep my eyes open for the Bamboo wipes as well. They are washable too. Thanks for the great giveaway.

  • kara

    I had never seen these before and after looking at the website…I would love to try ALL of them!

  • Janet

    I’d like to try the sponge that you can microwave to get the germs off. How cool is that?

  • I would like to try all the products but I use alot of wipes so the wipes made from bamboo would be great.

  • Shawn

    It’s wonderful that so many companies are now trying to “go green”. All the products look great, but I would love to try the scrubber sponge.

  • Renee S.

    I would love to try the absorbent sponge.

    These are wonderful! I can’t wait to try the Greener Clean Absorbent Cloth – I love the idea of replacing all of the paper towels that my house seems to go through!!

  • jenny Miller

    Greener clean Natural Fiber Non-Scratch Scrub sponge- Id love to try somehting new for our stove as our favorite stove top cleaner is discontinued and as the stove is ceramic stop- I need non scratch. Thanks for the giveaway!

  • melissa

    I’d love to try the scrubbers – I’m looking for something to use on pans instead of SOS pads. Thank you!

  • Mara

    This would be GREAT! The scrubbers or the scrub sponge are my top picks, but I could use them all!

  • The Scotch-Brite® Greener Clean Natural Fiber Non-scratch Scrub Sponge would be the most useful to me-I’m going to have to look for these in the store-cool product, thanks for the heads up!

  • The scrubbers for sure! So glad you do natural cleaners in your home too!

  • Gayla

    I would like to try the scrubbers and the sponges. I like the ability to santize them also. This is a great idea.
    Gayla

  • Kristy Sorensen

    I haven’t seen these yet! We don’t use so many paper towels, I keep plenty of towels on hands, but the scrubbers would be awesome! Perhaps I can stop wearing out my rags so quickly with those on hand.

  • Nicky T.

    Greener clean Soap loaded Scrubbers would be great!

    Thanks for the chance to win!

  • Maureen

    I would like to try the non-scratch scrub sponge. It appears similar to the regular scotch pad that is a scrubber on one side and a sponge on the other which we use all the time.

  • Kim

    I’m interested in the Soap-loaded scrubbers! They sound so convenient!

  • Lauren

    I’m really interested in the scour pad! I clean almost exclusively with vinegar and baking soda and for messes I pretty much just use either a rag or a scrub-brush. It would be nice to have an in-between, especially for the stove! I have a washcloth that’s 100% woven agave and it’s not terribly practical. I can’t wait to see how their kind of hybrid solution works! I will definitely be looking for these even if I don’t win.

  • Anne

    Thanks for the giveaway – would love to try this on shower doors:
    Scotch-Brite® Greener Clean Natural Fiber Non-scratch Scour Pad

  • Jessica

    I think the bamboo wipes look great. With a small child, I feel like I am always wiping up some sort of spill and this would be so nice and earth-friendly.

  • I think I would like the Scotch-Brite Greener Clean Natural Fiber Non-scratch Scour Pad. The sponges I have have scratched too many things.

  • I would love to try the scrubbers. Those sound really handy.

  • Tasha

    I would love the soap loaded scrubbers!

  • Tracy

    I’ve never seen those before. Pretty neat. I would love to try the Scotch-Brite™ Greener Clean Biodegradable* Absorbent Sponge.
    Thanks.

    I’d like to try the nonscratch scouring pad.

  • Amanda

    I would LOVE to try these products! The sponges are great. I have never found a sponge yet that I have liked, they all get so nasty so fast! I would love to tey these, and I am trying to be more “green” so this would help!

  • All of them look great. I didn’t know they had these out…I have not seen them in our stores yet.

    I would buy the wipes first and try each one after that.

  • carol brockman

    i would love to try the scour pad. I have yet to find a really good product that last very long

  • jen

    I’ve been trying hard to use less paper towels recently, so the sponges would be very helpful!

  • Robin

    The products all look great. I’m glad that several of them are made from renewable or recycled resources. I’m not sure about the soap loaded scrubbers – I know they’re made from recycled materials, but what about recycling them when you are done with them? Looking back, I think the sponges and the wipes look the most promising. Thanks for this opportunity.

  • Definitely the scrubbers… they sound fantastic!

  • Renee Evenson

    The soap loaded scubbers are just what I have been looking for! Chore Boy makes one, but no stores in my area carry them. I would definitely buy these.

  • the non scratch scour pad would be perfect for hand washing my new pots and pans.

    however, did you know you can put regular sponges on the top rack of your dishwasher too? it’s not limited to these guys
