Green cleaning is something I never really thought about until my first baby came along. Before that, I just focused on what would get the job done at the lowest price. That is the truth! But, when Graham was born it is like the entire world changed. He was putting everything in his mouth and I was cleaning like a crazy person. It wasn’t until one of my friends asked the question about what I used to clean up behind him that I really started to think about it all. Now, don’t get me wrong, I am not an “over cleaner” and I will still use bleach on things. You can’t stop me! But, I am cautious about what I am using that will be coming in contact with my tiny humans.
The problem with “green cleaning” for me has been two fold. First, the cleaners you purchase are generally expensive! Who can afford $5 a pop on a multi-surface cleaner? Not me. The next problem I had was them not being quite as effective as my “non-green” cleaners. I started making my own at one point which was the best solution, but now I want to let you all in on a little secret that is about to take over Walmart… Great Value Natural cleaners!
So, if you are not into making your own cleaners and just want a quick solution that doesn’t involve spending your life savings just to clean your laundry then you are going to want to check out this new line. So far Walmart is offering: Multi-surface ($2.47), glass, laundry ($8.97), and dish gel ($3.97) in the Great Value Natural line. I have used them all and can say that I am pleasantly surprised by how well they work. Multi-surface cleaners seem to be what I use the most of and this one is working out great for us. I also appreciate that Walmart took this to the laundry room. That seems to be the most expensive cleaning product we buy. Keep your eyes open for even more products to hit the shelves as time and research takes place.
These products are made from a plant-based, all-natural Evolve® cleaning technology. Evolve® is the very first plant-based technology to actually be laboratory tested to be as efficient in cleaning as those popular petroleum-based cleaners, detergents, degreasers and solvents. These products are currently being sold at over 2,000 Walmart stores. Can’t find them in your local store? You can purchase them online!
