Top 5 Reasons to Get Clean; from laundry to household, to germs and beyond!

  • Safe: Get Clean means a safer home: Some ingredients found in common cleaners may be toxic, like butyl cellosolve, ammonia, formaldehyde, etc. Get Clean has none and are nontoxic and free of harmful fumes, nitrates, phosphates and chlorine bleach.
  • Powerful: Tough on dirt, gentle on the environment: Typically, strong cleaners are rough on the environment, but a lot of eco-friendly cleaners seem a little too “friendly” to dirt. With Get Clean, you don’t have to choose between powerful cleaners and powerful convictions to take care of your home.
  • Green: Earth-friendly cleaning agents: Get Clean uses biodegradable, earth-friendly cleaning agents with no phosphates, nitrates, or other things that the planet doesn’t like. Products are super-concentrated, which means less weight to ship, less product needed to get the job done, and less packaging to throw away. When you use the Get Clean Starter Kit, you help keep 108 pounds of packaging waste from landfills and eliminate 248 pounds of greenhouse gas.
  • Smart: Save money while you help save the earth: With some cleaners, a lot of what you’re paying for is water; our smaller bottles contain a lot more cleaning power and save you a lot more money ounce for ounce. You have nothing to lose but dirt. You would have to spend $3,400 for ready-to-use cleaners to get the same amount of clean found in the Get Clean Starter Kit.

    Jenne and Iran thought they were going to have to give up on falling in love with a house and simply find one that would meet their growing family's needs. But nope! They found a home that exceeded all their expectations, including their daughter's, who was running and squealing in and out of every room! Even in a tough Sellers' market, dreams come true.
