First Ever Blog Giveaway!!




This Blog Giveaway is now officially Closed!

I will be announcing the winner tomorrow.. so stay tuned! 





I am so excited!! This is the first time I have ever done a giveaway on my blog! Sooo.. what am I giving away you ask??? A Shaklee Basic H2 Cleaning Kit for your home.


My friend Cathie B. is sponsoring this giveaway.

You can visit her Shaklee site here: www.cathiebryk.myshaklee.com


She sent me a kit so I could try out the Basic H2 cleaner. I am impressed by how much this little 16oz bottle of cleaner can make. It is super concentrated and will make 48 gallons of cleaner! I made a gallon of the cleaner and used it on my floors. I washed all my floors (wood floors as well).. and I was impressed by the dirt it picked up! I also made up a bottle of all purpose cleaner and used it to clean my kitchen cabinet doors and appliances.. It did a very nice job! Cleaned up the greasy mess on the stove top my son left after making himself a hamburger too..


Basic H2 does a lot more than just wash floors and cabinets.. You can use it also to replace Windex. 2 drops of the cleaner added to the 16 oz spray bottle and filled with water will make the window cleaner.


Beyond that it will also clean up the furniture, walls, bathrooms, pots and pans and hand washable fine fabrics. 


I have always been opposed to having 10 different cleaners to do 10 different jobs. I like to simplify my cleaning supplies. I am excited to continue to use it around my home and order more in the future. I appreciate the convenience of only needing one type of cleaner to do many jobs.


The nicest part about the cleaner is that it is an organic cleaner without added chemicals. It is nontoxic, no fumes, hypoallergenic, and more.. You can read more about the cleanser here: http://cathiebryk.myshaklee.com/us/en/products.php?sku=00015


Now for the details of this giveaway ..


The winner will receive the following items from Cathie:



1. 16oz bottle of Basic H2 Organic Super Cleaning Concentrate
2. 3 spray bottles to mix up cleaning solutions (and they are marked for you too.. “window cleaner”, “all purpose cleaner”, and “degreaser” and instructions to make the cleaners)
3. A super nice cloth shopping bag
4. A microfiber window cleaning cloth

5. And.. a catalog of Shaklee products


Here’s how the giveaway works…


Post on your blog or Facebook page about this giveaway and give a link back to my blog and then post back here in the comments section with your name and link to your blog or some way to get a hold of you and let me know you have done this.


On April 28th I will close this giveaway and pick a winner (I’ll draw your name out of a hat :) and I will contact you and let you know.

  3. Hi Crystal! I posted this on my Facebook page. I used to be an Assistant Supervisor in Shaklee. When I moved to a rural area, however, I had trouble finding new upline and meeting new people so I dropped out. I love Basic H. It is a great product. In fact, all their products are tops.
