how to mix Shaklee’s Basic H2 cleaner and how it saves you money

Today I wanted to hit on how easy it is to mix Shaklee’s Basic H2 cleaner and how it will save you a ton of money in cleaning products {not to mention saving the environment at the same time}.

When you purchase a bottle of Basic H2 cleaner, you are receiving a 16 oz bottle of double concentrated formula that can be mixed to create all of the cleaning power you need for your household.

If you are purchasing the Basic H2 cleaner for the first time, I also suggest investing in the 3-pack of reusable bottles.  With this 3-pack, you will receive a bottle to mix an all-purpose cleaner, window cleaner, and degreaser in {but please note that the Basic H2 cleaner can be used for MUCH more than just these three types of cleaners}

I would like to emphasize that these three bottles are REUSABLE….you will save thousands of plastic bottles from ending up in the landfills each time you mix your cleaner in these!

An added bonus, the recipe for Basic H2 concentrate + water is printed right on the side of the bottles.  No need to try and remember!  Plus, the colored lines across the top of the bottle represent how much water to add, so really there isn’t a whole lot of measuring that you actually need to do.

The three basic formulas, that would represent the cleaners in the refillable spray bottles are as follows:

For all-purpose cleaning:
Add 1/4 tsp. to 16 oz. of water

For windows and mirrors:
Add 1-2 drops to 16 oz. of water

For degreasing:
Add 1 1/2 tsp. to 16 oz. of water.

For bigger jobs {like cleaning your floors}, add 2 oz. to 1 gallon of water.PDF Page 2

If you have already done the math, you can easily see how much money you will save by switching to Shaklee’s Basic H2 cleaner.  I mean, you only need two drops of the Basic H2 concentrate to make your window cleaner! 

Here is an example for you – the 16 oz bottle of Basic H2 concentrate mixes 5,824 bottles of window cleaner.  If you went out and purchased 5,824 of that blue window cleaner, you would be spending MUCH more than you did on this one bottle of concentrate {Shaklee’s Basic H2 16 oz bottle is currently $12.15 retail or $10.35 for members}.

Another example – the 16 oz bottle of Shaklee’s Basic H2 concentrate can mix 48 gallons of all-purpose cleaner!

Not to mention, you will have saved 5,824 blue window cleaner plastic bottles from ending up in the garbage. 

And did I mention that Shaklee’s Basic H2 cleaner is nontoxic, natural, and utilizes biodegradable surfactants?  You can use Shaklee’s Basic H2 cleaner on any washable surface, inside and out and it is safe for your kids to use while helping you clean!

I have been using my Basic H2 cleaner, mixed in my three reusable bottles, on everything.  It certainly works just as good, if not better, than any “traditional” cleaner I have used in the past. 

The one thing I did miss initially was the “clean” smell {which was just a chemical smell, but something I associated with “clean”}.  To solve that problem, I now mix essential oils in with my cleaners.  Each type of cleaner now has a new, fresh smell such as orange, lavender, or lemongrass!  I use this essential oil sampler pack found on Amazon.

Do not worry, I will have more posts to come on how versatile Shaklee’s Basic H2 cleaner is {and how many different ways I use it to clean}.  Today’s post was more to show you that the cleaner really isn’t that expensive…..and that, in fact, it is much LESS in cost than what you are using now.

Not to mention how much SAFER it is for you, your children, and your pets!

Like I mentioned above, if this is your first time purchasing a bottle of Shaklee’s Basic H2 cleaner, I would HIGHLY suggest getting the reusable bottles as well. 

The best way to get started with Shaklee’s Get Clean products is with one of their Get Clean Starter kits.  Shaklee offers a variety of wonderful cleaning kits, with a great mix of all different products.  My favorite, of course, is the fragrance free kit {so that I can add my own fragrance via essential oils}

However, if you are looking for something a little more basic, just to get started with the Basic H2 cleaner, make sure to check out the Get Clean Household Mini Kit that includes a bottle of Basic H2 cleaner and the three reusable spray bottles.  It also comes with the Scour-off Paste which you will absolutely LOVE….it has basically replaced all of my Mr. Clean Magic Erasers {more to come in a future post}!

Not sure what the difference between “member price” and retail price is?  Let me break it down for you. 

You are either a member of Shaklee and save at least 15% off the retail price on all purchases, or you simply pay full retail price.

To become a member, there is a one-time fee of $19.95.  This is for a LIFETIME membership with Shaklee.  There is never a renewal cost, and you will always pay the member price on anything you purchase for the rest of your life!

And it wouldn’t be fair of me if I didn’t mention that there are actually ways to get your lifetime membership for FREE!  You become a lifetime member of Shaklee, for free, with the purchase of a Vitalizer or a Shaklee 180 kit {either the turnaround or the lean and healthy kit}.  If you are looking to lose weight, get healthy, AND become a lifetime member of Shaklee {saving at least 15% on all purchases}, then this would be the way to go!

Okay, now, remember in my “why I love Shaklee” post a few days ago I mentioned I had some hefty goals for myself?  Here is the first one! 

I want 10 different households to try Shaklee’s Get Clean products by the end of August.  Will you be one of them? ……  {pretty please?}

Do not forget that Shaklee also has a great income opportunity.  I would love to have you join my team!  Please email me if you would like additional details, or you can sign up with the Shaklee program right online.  Earn a few extra dollars in your spare time at home.  Plus, you automatically become a lifetime member of Shaklee, for FREE, when you start your Shaklee business!
