Green Works Review

I’ve tried a couple different approaches when it comes to keeping my house clean.  The first way was to do one big clean up a week. This is where I would do the entire house from bathrooms, bedrooms, laundry, kitchen- you name it, I did it. I would spend my entire Saturday or Sunday cleaning. Needless to say, this way wasn’t working so great for me. I was dead tired at the end of the day and didn’t want to look at a broom or mop for a long time.

The way that works the best for me is to do a little each day. I like to break it up into more manageable tasks and I find if I keep on top of the cleaning, I am not faced with a mountain of laundry or floors that need to be washed or swept at the end of the week. I do it everyday and am done in less than 1 hour.  I work better when my environment is clean and organized!!

Of course, I have tried many cleaning products in the past and do prefer the more natural and eco-friendly options on the market. Green Works has been one of my trusted brands for awhile now. Their products are made from ingredients from coconuts and lemon oil and are biodegradeable. Its a very affordable line with prices starting at $2.97.

I got to review two Green Works products- the newly improved Green Works Natural Glass Cleaner and Green Works Natural Cleaning Wipes.

The Green Works Natural Glass Cleaner cuts through filmy residue and is safe on multiple surfaces throughout the kitchen and bathroom including glass, mirrors, appliances, and stainless free. Its also ammonia free. I use this product EVERYWHERE! I am serious. This is my main cleaning product. I am armed with a bottle of this cleaner and either a rag or roll of paper towel and watch me go. I clean my stove, my entire fridge (inside and out), my mirrors, my tables, bookshelves and I even used it to wipe down the kitchen garbage can. I also use it along with toilet cleaner to clean the toilet bowl! I like that it doesn’t have a strong chemical smell and that it really does work! This is a product I buy again and again and when I ran out of the bottle I got for my review, I went out and bought another!

I hadn’t tried the Green Works Natural Cleaning Wipes so I was looking forward to seeing how I like them. They are good to clean grime, dirt, soils and messes and are safe to use on multiple surfaces throughout the kitchen and bathroom. I like that there is no harsh chemicals and they don’t have a strong smell that gives me a headache. I used these to wipe down my stairs and the baseboards. They work awesome on picking up all the dirt and dust and really made the baseboards shine. In addition, I used them to wipe down my stand-up shower wall. I wanted to use something natural where I shower since I am paranoid around chemicals.  This is another great product as I expected it would be.

Green Works products are available across Canada in grocery, drug and mass retailers.
