First, the starter kit from Shaklee includes EVERYTHING you'll need to clean any and all parts of your home. They left nothing out, including awesome quality sponges, rags, scrub brushes and measuring tools and a carry-all to make going from room to room easier.
You get a bottle of concentrated general cleaner, and instructions on how to mix it with water to make a general surface cleaner, window/glass cleaner and a more powerful degreaser. Like I mentioned, the measuring tools are provided for you and the spray bottles are labeled, so you just mix it up! I think it took me all of about two minutes.
I was immediately intrigued by how powerful the degreaser could be, so I got to cleaning my microwave. While I'm crunchy, I'm also realistic and accept that many times organic/nontoxic cleaners don't hold up to conventional products. Not so with these! Cut through the grease like a charm. Up next is my stove top!
I really like how they also included laundry products. I'm SUPER allergic to Downy/scented conventional laundry products, so we're a "scent free" home. Did you know that the fragrance conventional brands add to laundry products is toxic?! It contains formaldehyde. That's why you're not supposed to use it for baby's clothes and if you break out in a sudden rash, your doctor asks if you've recently switched up detergents. Why would you want that on the biggest organ in your body (your skin) or to be breathing that in all day long?! Gross.
There's also "dupe" type products included. My hubs really loves easy to use disinfectant wipes for quick counter top wipe downs, so I was thrilled when they included a nontoxic alternative for him to use.
I was impressed with everything Shaklee offered in their cleaning starter kit. While sometimes (and, honestly, sometimes it's more than just sometimes!) nontoxic cleaning supplies don't hold their weight to conventional, chemical laden brands, Shaklee's products were great! No harsh smells, no chemicals pregnant women or children shouldn't be touching (even if it is just residue on the surface of what you've cleaned!) and products that work.

Guys, I know I'm in my peace circle over here singing songs after I practice yoga (not really, but I totally would if anyone wants to hang out like that) but I can't stress this enough: Get rid of those harmful chemicals in your cleaning cabinet. Get on the nontoxic bandwagon for your sake, your children's sake, your pet's sake and the environment's sake!
