Simple Green Review & Giveaway


“We, the Sunshine Makers, as a socially responsible company, are

committed to being worldwide market leaders providing quality,

environmentally safe, cleaning products.”


Simple Green has had ample time to perfect their products, since they are a leader in the "green" industry. Dating back to 1979, when Bruce Fabrizio and his father developed a safer alternative to the toxic cleaners being used to clean tannic acid (a by product of coffee roasting). He started out delivering 55 gallon drums with his van and grew the company and the product line from there. Over the past 30+ years, Simple Green has spent more than 3 million dollars to prove the safety and efficacy of their products.


This isn't the first time I have worked with Simple Green to review one of their products. I was lucky enough that as a very new blogger, a wonderful marketing guru took a chance and let me review the Simple Green Pet Products. That same guru has again provided me with a Simple Green kit to try and review. This time around I got to try the Simple Green Household Products line, which consists of a Stainless Steel Cleaner & Polish, a Stone Cleaner and a Stone Polish.
It's ironic that I was able to review these, especially since I had just been complaining to my husband that I needed some "stainless" cleaner like I had used when I worked in restaurants for my microwave. Anything I used to clean the front always seemed to leave streaks, spots or just a cloudy appearance, I never got that fresh out of the box shine. The Simple Green Stainless Steel is a simple one step cleaner & polish, that is highly concentrated to last longer than other cleaners on the market. I am very happy with the results:

You can see the cloudy spots in the first picture and the clean, gleaming shine in the second picture. Very little elbow grease was required to achieve the sparkling clean appearance! This product can also be used on chrome.

Next up is the Simple Green Stone Cleaner & Simple Green Stone Polish. These two products were designed for the easy and environmentally safe maintenance of high end stone products found in our homes. Good for use on surfaces like; Corian, Silestone, granite, marble, tile, engineered or natural stone products. This is a two step process, but still very easy. Simply spray the stone cleaner and wipe with a soft cloth, paper towel or sponge. If surface is  in need of heavier cleaning allow it to soak in for a minute or so. After it's clean simply spray and wipe the stone polish.

I have tiled bathroom walls but apparently they weren't yucky enough (go me!) for the difference to show up on camera....just looked really shiny. So in the interest of photo's for my readers I dragged the hubby downstairs and told him to wash the mildew that recently appeared in the corner. The picture I am posting is a before and after.  I wanted you to be able to see the drastic difference, just one spray, wipe with a towel and then a spray of stone polish made. (don't worry, I did make him get a brush and make him put some ooomph and finish the whole corner...he LOVES blogging lol)

I think those results speak for themselves!
The Stone Cleaner & Stone Polish are both non-toxic, biodegradable, non-hazardous, non-abrasive, non-corrosive and non-flammable.The Stainless Steel Cleaner & Polish is non-Toxic, biodegradable, no petroleum, zero VOCs, non-abrasive, non-flammable. That makes these the perfect products to use in your home. Safe for the environment, your family & your pets.

BUY IT: You can purchase any of these products online for $6.39 per bottle (comes with a microfiber towel) or in select retailers and drugstores near you.

WIN IT: One of my readers will win the exact same package I received. A full size Stainless Steel Cleaner & Polish, Stone Cleaner and a Stone Polish
