What’s Lurking Under Your Kitchen Sink? Shaklee Review and Giveaway! #GetClean

shakleeI have to be honest and admit that I have not been as diligent as I should when it comes to choosing the safest cleaning products for my family. I often grab whatever is on sale or go with generics. When asked the question ‘what’s lurking under your kitchen sink?’ I have been pretty clueless about what chemicals are in my cleaning products.


Thanks to Shaklee this has all changed for me. I received a Shaklee Get Clean Kit and have been educated on what to look out for on cleaning labels. Shaklee offers a full line of natural and nontoxic cleaning choices that are Safe for You, Your Home, and Your Planet®called Get Clean®. Shaklee believes that health isn’t just about what you put in your body; it’s about everything around you. Their cleaning products have even been reviewed and endorsed for their safety by Healthy Child Healthy World.

About Shaklee Products

  • Outperforms 20 national leading brands.
  • You would spend $3400 for ready to use cleaners to get the same amount of clean found in the Get Clean Starter Kit!*
  • Features Basic H2® Organic Super Cleaning Concentrate – just 1/4 tsp. makes 16oz. of all-purpose cleaner for only 3 cents.
  • And when you purchase the Get Clean Starter Kit you also make a positive impact on the planet:
  • Keep 108 pounds of packaging waste from landfills.
  • Eliminate 248 pounds of greenhouse gas.

* Based on comparing number of uses as set forth on product labels of conventional, ready-to-use cleaners.

Receiving this Shaklee Get Clean Starter Kit was just the motivation I needed to do a major clean-out under the kitchen sink. I couldn’t believe what a disaster that area had become. I found some cleaners that had been under there for a long time and some of them never used. This had clearly become a hazardous area in my home! I was shocked by some of the things I read on the labels such as: kerosene, phenols, cresol, lye, hydrochloric acid, sulfuric acid, sulfuric acid, petroleum distillates, ammonia, sodium hydroxide, butyl cellosolve, phosphoric acid, formaldehyde, chlorine bleach, morpholine, and phthalates. None of these potential harmful chemicals will be found in Shaklee products!


I feel so good about cleaning the area under my kitchen sink. I ended up tossing most of what was under there. One of the things that I really like about Shaklee is that their products are concentrated and so versatile. The Basic H2 Organic Ssuper Cleaning Concentrate can be used for so many different things and a little goes a long way. The Nature Bright Laundry Booster and Stain Remover is probably the best laundry booster and stain remover that I have ever used. We don’t have a dishwasher, so my sister-in-law scored the Dish Washer Automatic Concentrate and she loves it! My hands don’t feel at all dry after using Shaklee’s Hand Dish Wash Concentrate, so i am thrilled with this product!

  • With the Basic H2® Organic Super Cleaning Concentrate just 1/4 tsp. makes 16oz. of all-purpose cleaner for only 3 cents

Overall I am extremely satisfied with all of the Shaklee cleaning products that came in my Get Clean Starter Kit. They work great and are safe for my family and our pets. What more could I want?
