Clorox Green Works

Have you ever worried about what goes into your cleaning products? Just exactly how "clean" is your house after spraying chemicals around it?

This has always been a concern of mine so I was thrilled to discover the new environment-friendly line of products by Clorox, called "Clorox Greenworks." Over 99% natural, you can feel good that your house is clean AND toxin-free.

I was given two of the products in the new line to try out:

Green Works Natural All-Purpose Cleaner (99.93 percent natural) and...

Green Works Natural Glass & Surface Cleaner (99.84 percent natural).

The ingredients are plant-based and have such a fresh, clean scent. Have you ever found a line of cleaners with ingredients like these:
  • Green Works Natural All-Purpose Cleaner: Filtered water, coconut-based cleaning agent (alkyl polyglucoside), corn-based ethanol, glycerine, essential lemon oil, biodegradable preservative, colorant

  • Green Works Natural Glass & Surface Cleaner: Filtered water, coconut-based cleaning agent (alkyl polyglucoside), soda ash, corn-based ethanol, glycerine, and fragrance with essential lemon oil

If you're worried that natural doesn't equate into effective, consider a blind study with 200 consumers using Clorox Green Works and other leading brands over a two to four week period. The consumers were not told which products were which, or that any of them were natural. All five of the products in the Clorox Green Works line performed just as well, or better, than their competitors.

The ingredients are not only natural, they are also biodegradable. I don't know if that is the reason why it was so easy to wipe clean or not, but I LOVE that about these products. It left no filmy or soapy residue after I wiped it.

With other products, I have to practically house down my counter tops to get rid of all the suds. With Clorox Green Works Natural All-Purpose Cleaner, a few simple swipes of the sponge was all it took to have a clean surface. Something that's very important to me as a mom as little hands are constantly touching those surfaces.

The same was true for my mirrors. Clorox Green Works Glass & Surface Cleaner left my mirrors clear and streak-free. I sat and looked into the mirror for a bit, amazed at how much clearer everything looked. And again, the scent was fresh and clean.

Other products in this innovative line include:

  • Green Works Natural Toilet Bowl Cleaner
  • Green Works Natural Dilutable Cleaner
  • Green Works Natural Bathroom Cleaner

Head on over to the Clorox Green Works website to learn more about the products, the story and science behind them, and where you can purchase these safe and earth-friendly products for your home. You'll be glad you did!
