Home Is Where My Story Begins

My New Cleaning Supplies

I’m so excited! My new Shaklee cleaning supplies have arrived.


At the beginning of the summer my kids were doing their chores and my son told me that he couldn’t stand cleaning the bathroom because the smell burned his eyes and nose. He was right! Those bathroom chemicals are really strong and cleaning with chemicals is really not fun. (Cleaning really isn’t fun anyway, but the chemicals just make it worse.) Then there was my husband… I was shampooing the carpets and set the bottle of carpet cleaner on the counter while I was filling it by the sink. He came home from work and very nicely told me that having a bottle of chemicals on the kitchen counter, where we prepare food, freaked him out. He was right too! So, I was on a mission to reduce the chemicals I use in my house. I’m so excited to try the Shaklee cleaning products. I’ll let you know how they work!

That meant that I had to find a home for the cleaning products. Oh, I’ll just put them under the kitchen sin….. oh wait. There’s no room under the kitchen sink. (Don’t be fooled by my neat and tidy rooms that appear in my pictures. I have messes just like everyone else. I just usually don’t take pictures of them and post them on the internet.)


I pulled everything out, cleaned out the container I keep supplies in, and washed down the disgusting liner at the bottom of the cupboard.


Just the things I really needed went back in.


Cleaning out under the kitchen sink is right up there with scrubbing toilets on my list of jobs I really hate. Well, I checked that off the To Do list and now I don’t have to think about it for a while.

Happy Cleaning!!!

    Happy cleaning! I love Shaklee! I use some of their products, along with Method and Norwex…all of which are non-toxic. I went non-toxic when my oldest was a baby..she's now 14!

    That's great! I have a sample of Shaklee's Basic H from Bonnie at House of Grace and am going to make the switch too! I hate it when your eyes burn and you can't breathe because of the chemical smell. Way to go!

    GOod for you!!! I feel the same way you do! I haven't tried Shaklee yet (but I want to!) but am using more earthly friendly, natural (and some homemade) cleaners. Once you start you get on a roll! 🙂

    Hi Becca! Like your son, I also don’t like the smell of bathroom chemicals. Good thing my mom found natural cleaning products that have the same cleaning effects. I guess, we should not just focus on the idea of “easy” cleaning, but we must also take into account the importance of using natural products for the sake of our health and the environment as well.

    So, how effective are the cleaning supplies that you purchased? I’d love to know your opinion about the products, if they are really natural, if they have less chemical content, and if they smell good. I hope, with those products, you’ll enjoy cleaning now. +Skylar Cox
