Embracing a Healthy Family: Cleaning with Green Works® & Loving It!

Cleaning with Green Works® & Loving It!

Green WorksCleaning is something that concerns me and although I may not clean enough, I want to use a cleaning product that is safe for my kids and not contaminating the water system as much.  Clorox's Green Works® products have no harsh chemical fumes or residue.  It's the same cleaning powerhouse you expect from Clorox but without those eye watering, skin burning chemicals that you get from some products.  I have two children with chronic medical conditions and keeping them healthy is imperative to me and that starts with eliminating germs.  I am a staunch handwasher advocate and believe a clean house is a healthy house.

I'm also trying my hand at homeschooler so I also get to control what my kids learn.  On the particular day I received my complimentary package of Green Works® products, they had an impromptu lesson on the importance of cleanliness and how Green Works® differs from some of the other products I have hidden in the cabinet.  Of course, they weren't all that impressed with my information I was sharing with them but I'm hoping they picked up a thing or two and I don't feel so bad when one of them asks to help and I don't have to worry about chemical absorption or burns to their skin.  


Some facts about Green Works® products:


  • Are made with plant- and mineral-based cleaning ingredients.
  • Come from biodegradable ingredients that are naturally derived
  • Are not tested on animals.
  • Use environmentally sustainable packaging whenever possible.
  • Are acknowledged by the Natural Products Association, the Sierra Club and the EPA’sDesign for the Environment program.

Here are the products I was lucky to try and review:

  • Green Works® Naturally Derived Cleaning Wipes really pack some serious cleaning power and are made with naturally derived ingredients, such as citric acid and wood fibers. That means they won’t give off harsh chemical fumes or leave behind harsh chemical residue.  What I like the most about these wipes are they are 100% biodegradable.  When there are flu or cold germs floating around, I prefer to wipe and trash versus having remnants of cleaning cloths lay behind.  I like that they can be tossed quickly and are safe for use on most non-wood surfaces, including acrylic, fiberglass and vinyl.  These are winners in my book!
  • The Green Works® Naturally Derived All-Purpose Cleaner can be used throughout the kitchen or bath and on my surfaces.  It punches through the grease and dirt and doesn't leave a harsh smell or residue.   This product is nice because it's so versatile.  I can use it to clean the counters, the refrigerator, the garbage cans, the kitchen table, the bathroom counters, the washing machine and did you know that it does a great job on the wheels of vehicles?  I was curious so I tried it out and it did a great job!  
  • The Green Works® Laundry Detergent is amazingly tough on dirt and stains.  Since I've been using it, I haven't had to use a pre-treater which I love because I have so many other things to do, I don't have time to pay attention to every detail.  My youngest is also ultra sensitive and she had no reacation as it's been dermatologist-tested for sensitive skin.  Made from naturally derived cleaning ingredients it really leaves the laundry smelling good and clean and I don't have to worry about polluting the water with phosphates, optical brighteners or harsh chemical residue.  Since I have a high-efficiency washer, it's also formulated for both standard and high-efficiency (HE) washers so another win-win!
  • Green Works® Naturally Derived Bathroom Cleaner is also made with plant- and mineral-based cleaning ingredients that power through soap scum, rust and hard water stains without harsh chemical fumes and residue. It works powerfully on bathroom counters, sinks, bathtubs, tile and shower doors, removing tough soap scum.  Even though I could use the All-Purpose Cleaner in the bathroom, I prefer to use this cleaner in the bathroom as the tough to clean areas have a different root cause and removing the soap scum and hard water stains can be difficult.  It did a great job and again, no fumes or bad residues.

Overall, I love the Green Works® products and will purchase again.  I enjoy a piece of mind knowing that I'm cleaning, protecting my children and protecting the public water source by not introducing more contaminants into an already over-contaminated system.  I am a Clorox fan and feel they have provided the same level of cleaning power I expect from them but with a twist of protection from fumes and harsh chemicals.
