Eco-Friendly Cleaning with Tropical Traditions: Review and Giveaway (Ends 10/19) CLOSED

Friday, October 08, 2010 Posted by Dina N

I like to use eco-friendly cleaners around my house. I've tried many different brands, and found that some work better than others. Tropical Traditions, the makers of my favorite coconut oil, have a line of household goods - including cleaners - marketed under the name Household Traditions. I love their oxygen bleach and glass and surface cleaner, so I was excited to try the All Purpose Cleaner for this review.

The All Purpose Cleaner, a botanical soap derived from leafy greens and other plants, comes in a 32 oz spray bottle. It is an all natural cleaner and degreaser that can be used in kitchens, bathrooms, cars, and more. I tackled kitchen cleaning first, and it did wonders on my stove, microwave and refrigerator. Counter tops and the kitchen sink came next, then the bathroom. I got fantastic results everywhere! For soap scum, mold and mildew, leave it on for a few minutes, then wipe and rinse clean. The All Purpose Cleaner can be used in lieu of hand soap and dishwashing liquid in the sink or dishwasher. It works great as a stain remover in the laundry room, too. Use it as carpet shampoo, wash fruit and veggies, clean your walls and floors, and make the grill look as good as new. A truly versatile cleaner that cuts grease and gets rid of dirt in record time - now that's something to get excited about.

I have not tried this yet but the All Purpose Cleaner can be used to clean the exterior of your car, the tires and the engine. That's something my husband will be very happy about the next time he is on car cleaning duty.

Speaking of great eco-friendly cleaners, Tropical Traditions Oxygen Bleach is a safe and effective alternative to chlorine based products. I reviewed it back in February - check out what I had to say about it here - and I know I'll never go back to chlorine bleach again.

Deal Alert
Right now, Tropical Traditions All Purpose Cleaner is on sale at $6.99 for a 32 oz bottle. If I were you, I would get the 1 gallon for $21.95. Considering the many different uses of this cleaner, it's a steal. The  Oxygen Bleach is also on sale at $23.99 for a 6 lb. container! That's 20% discount off the regular retail price of $30. It's worth every penny. You'll be cleaning and maybe doing a little happy dance, just like I am.

If you decide to buy this product or anything else from Tropical Traditions, as a first-time customer you can get a FREE Virgin Coconut Oil book with purchase. Find out all about coconut oil and its uses! Just use code 5251001 in the Referred by a Friend section and the book will be added to your order at no charge.
