Let’s Talk MONEY!!

I’ll be honest…one of the first things that fueled my interest in the Shaklee Get Clean line was that fact that I would be saving money! I couldn’t believe what I saw in the cost comparison chart:

Get Clean Cost Comparison

Many people look at the prices of the products and think they are too expensive, but that is because they don’t understand that most of the products are ultra-concentrated and will last for a *long* time!

Let’s look at my favorite….Basic H2….first:

  • This little 16 oz bottle creates an unbelievable 48 gallons of super-safe, really powerful, all purpose cleaner.
  • 1 bottle of Basic H2equals the cleaning uses of 5,824 bottles of 26 oz. Windex
  • All-purpose Cleaner: 22 cents per gallon
  • Window Cleaner: less than 1 cent per gallon
  • Degreaser: $1.29 per gallon
  • Not only is Basic H2 cheaper than most cleaners, but it works!!!
  • It is actually cheaper to use the Shaklee concentrated products than it is to use vinegar as a household cleaner!!
  • Many people report that their 16 ounce bottle of Basic H2 lasts over 2 years!!

I will be doing an entire post on Basic H2 and all that it can do.

Next up…. Basic G (Germicide)

  • Basic G is not included in the Get Clean line, but you can find it in the “home care” section on the Shaklee website. I will discuss this further in the post I have dedicated to Basic G.
  • Toilet Bowl/Disinfectant/Bathroom Cleaner: 27 cents per use
  • One quart makes up to 64 gallons!
  • It is effective against 32 types of bacteria (including antibiotic-resistant strains such as MRSA and VRE) in addition to many human viruses, animal viruses, and fungi……Lysol is only effective against 8 types of bacteria!!
  • Uses the same kind of chemical formation that is used in many hospitals!
  • Basic G has NO FUMES and it cleans, disinfects, and deodorizes in one step! There is no need to rinse unless it is a food prep area. Since, in its diluted form, it is non-toxic, it is safe to be used while one is pregnant, but I give you permission to keep this fact a secret in order to get out of “bathroom cleaning duty” while you are pregnant!
  • Once Basic G is mixed with water in a spray bottle, the mixture needs to be used within 30 days…..When diluted with water, bleach loses its ability to disinfect after 24 hours. Many child-care facilities keep a 10:1 mixture of bleach in a spray bottle to disinfect toys, but it is not disinfecting as they think it is if it has been diluted for greater than 24 hours. Scary!!
  • Once Basic G is used on a surface, it remains effective in disinfecting on that surface for 3 days…..the effectiveness of bleach wears off after 1 hour!!
  • Once again, not only is it cheaper, it is more effective than most household disinfectants that you can buy.

I know there is a lot of information in this post, but I want to make sure that everyone understands that these products will save money AND be more effective than most cleaners you are probably using. I’m just going to touch on a couple more products.
