*The following post is by guest writer, Busy Mom of 3.
I don’t blog. I don’t have a blog, but luckily my friend Christine does. I am honoured to do my first guest post on her blog. I’m a private person, so having this avenue as a means of exercising my creative writing ability is great. My first post happens to be about Better Life.
For those who haven’t heard of Better Life, Better Life makes naturally-safe and effective cleaning products that help get the dirtiest jobs done. Their products smell great, work exceptionally well and prove that cleaning does not have to be boring and painful. They believe in good, clean, fun. That means they only make products that are good for the environment and your family. SOLD EXCLUSIVELY AT TARGET.
I checked out some of the Better Life videos before trying the products. I like getting to know a bit of the history and seeing how things work before bringing items into our home. I like that Better Life Co-founder, Nancy Barklage, talks about cleaning up with her kids with Better Life all-natural and safe cleaning products. If she uses the products with her own kids, it makes me feel more confident using them with my own children.
With three kids at home, I have been looking for cleaning products that are safe to use around kids, won’t make them or our pets sick, AND that actually work. I have tried many green products that work well, BUT require a lot more work and elbow grease to get things clean. I figured I just had to either accept that I needed to do more work (but who has time when you have three little kids at home?) or just accept that the level of cleanliness in our house was just going to have to be that of semi-clean despite best efforts.
I have to admit that I really like the clever names of the Better Life products. Fun names like “I Can See Clearly WOW!” and “what-EVER” all purpose cleaner and “Totally Floored” floor cleaner gave me a good chuckle. The grease fighting and stain cleaning power is not to be underestimated though. These products really work.
I have to say that the Simply FLOORED! natural floor cleaner is my favourite. Firstly, the Citrus Mint scent is very refreshing. I like that you can just squirt and mop too! It’s suitable to use on on floor types. It cleans and restores beautiful shine to hardwood, tile, marble, bamboo, vinyl, laminate, and other sealed floors and doesn’t damage the finish. All I had to do is squirt directly on floor and mop with clean, damp mop or cloth. As a busy mom, I like that it’s ready to use and no rinsing required. I like that it’s a greener, safer alternative for the home and planet.
Our hardwood floors have seen better days with the kids and the pets running around. Simply FLOORED! did a great job at cleaning our floors and made the house smell naturally good as well.
I am also into essential oils like Christine is, so seeing the ingredient lists on the products impressed me. I was surprised to see that the DISH IT OUT Tough on Grease natural dish soap had Clary Sage and Citrus! Clary Sage and Citrus happen to be two of my favourites because of their properties.
I’m glad that the Better Life products are available at Target and I’m glad I’ve found something safe for my family and the planet.
