How Clean is Green Works®?

Clorox LogoWhen I first saw Green Works® products in the cleaning aisle of my grocery store I thought, “Hey, that’s a great way to go green without spending extra in my budget.” And I bought the Green Works® Naturally Derived All-Purpose Cleaner because it was the same price as their other lines that I normally used. I loved the smell of the products and the fact that I could clean without having extra residue on my counters was an added bonus.

Here are the items I got to check out and my thoughts on them:

  • Green Works® Naturally Derived Cleaning Wipes because these wipes are made from things like citric acid and wood fibers the smells that normally bother me in a cleaning wipe are greatly reduced. I have asthma and allergies so often times when I’m using cleaning wipes I’ll cough and sneeze the entire time, with these however I found I didn’t have that issue. I think it’s cool too that they’re 100% biodegradable.
  • Green Works® Naturally Derived All-Purpose Cleaner  was already a favorite of mine before this review, and continues to be that. I love the smell of the cleaner and it really gets the job done too. I think often times with non-conventional cleaning products the worry is that it won’t clean as well, this worry is put to bed by this all-purpose cleaner. I love how I can use it anywhere in my home, and use it mostly on my counter tops.
  • Green Works® Laundry Detergent is great. Normally we buy the “free” detergents, free of dyes, free of color because our skin is a little sensitive. I found out though that this laundry detergent was specifically dermatologist-tested for sensitive skin. There are no phosphates, optical brighteners or harsh chemical residue to irritate skin. And I can even use it although I have a high-efficiency (HE) washer. One really cool thing about this detergent, in my opinion is a very, very small detail, the detergent drain. At least that’s the name I gave it. I don’t know about you, but often times I use the cap to dispense my detergent and the next time I go to get more the excess detergent that gets caught on the rim leaks all over me, the floor, and the clothes. This detergent has a neat little slit that lets that residual detergent filter back into the main compartment of the container, and I LOVE it. {Yes little things do make me happy.}
  • Green Works® Naturally Derived Bathroom Cleaner is made with plant- and mineral-based cleaning ingredients that help clean up soap scum and the other yuckies that exist in the bathroom. {Yes, I said “yuckies”}. DaddyB HATES the smell of another popular bathroom cleaner brand, although it doesn’t particular phase me, so the Green Works® option makes him much happier and he’s even offered to help me clean the bathrooms more because of it, {thanks Clorox!}

Clorox Green Works Products

All in all I really like the Green Works® line of products, and while they’re not necessarily the “greenest” product out there, I love that there is an alternative to the harsher chemicals that is affordable and a step in the right direction when it comes to the environment and our families.
