I’ve talked before about my tendency to do “winter cleaning” instead of spring cleaning and the weather lately really proved my point. Ottawa had gorgeous, sunny, summer weather for a week and we were out every day for hours at various playgrounds and backyards, soaking up every moment we could. Then winter came back and I had a good look around my house and realized I’d better get my act together! When my package of Green Works® cleaners arrived I knew I had no more excuses.
I hate to admit it, but I’m a bit of a procrastinator. If I have to get out one cleaner for my tile floor (kitchen and entry/powder room), one for my hardwood, one for windows, one for stainless steel, one for wood…I just don’t end up doing any of it. I need cleaners that multitask and let me get as much cleaning done in the shortest amount of time. Ashlyn loves to ‘help’ me clean so I also want to make sure that the products I use can clean powerfully without harsh chemical fumes, and with Rowan crawling around and occasionally licking the floors I need no residue!
Some of the big selling features of Green Works® are:
- Green Works® products are made with plant- and mineral-based cleaning ingredients. These ingredients are biodegradable and are naturally derived.
- Green Works® products are not tested on animals.
- Green Works® products are acknowledged by the United States Environmental Protection Agency’s Design for the Environment program (you can read more about what this means here)
So far I have tested out a number of Green Works® products in our home. The dilutable multi-purpose cleaner did a great job on both my tile and my hardwood with no sticky residue. The bathroom cleaner and toilet bowl cleaner both have a light, pleasant scent – very important when you’re working in a small, enclosed space! – and did the job I needed them to do.
I’m most impressed with the glass and surface cleaner and all-purpose cleaner. I’ve purchased a ‘natural’ glass cleaner in the past and had to throw it out because I could not get a streak-free clean. When I saw that the Green Works® glass and surface cleaner is also recommended to use on stainless steel I was sold. It cleaned my windows and oven door with no streaking and no harsh fumes. The Green Works® all-purpose cleaner has taken up residence in my kitchen. One spray bottle can clean my stainless steel appliances, my counters, my table, my sink and I even sprayed a bit on a cloth to do a quick once-over on my dark wood furniture in the adjoining family room!
You can find the Green Works® line of cleaners at Walmart, Sobey’s, London Drugs and other retailers across Canada.
