Get Naturally Clean with Nature's Source

I love having a clean home, but hate the actual cleaning part. When it comes to cleaning, I look for products that will allow me to get the job done in the least amount of time. Nature's Source is a new line of cleaning products from SC Johnson. I use their products all the time, like Windex and Scrubbing bubbles, but what's great about the new line is that they are made with simple, biodegradable, plant-based cleaners. This means that I can feel safe about cleaning around my young son (and also eliminates using him as an excuse not to clean!)

I was sent the Bathroom Cleaner and the Natural Toilet Bowl Cleaner to test out. Truth be told, cleaning the bathroom is a somewhat frightening experience for me and so it doesn't actually get cleaned as often as it should. That said, I entered the disaster area armed with the products and got to work. The first thing I noticed about the bathroom cleaner was the pleasant smell. It's fresh and doesn't have that artificial cleaning smell that sometimes makes me feel sick. It turned cleaning into a much more enjoyable experience for me. Not only that, but it actually works really well. I was able to clean all the surfaces without any hard scrubbing and my mirror sparkled.

Next, I tackled the toilet which definitely needed some help. Again,the toilet bowl cleaner filled the toilet with a welcome fresh scent and made cleaning a cinch. I managed to scrub all the hard to reach places that normally don't get cleaned because I just can't scrub hard enough. I'm actually looking forward to cleaning my bathroom again! In addition to the bathroom products, the Nature's Source line includes a natural glass and surface cleaner, and a natural all-purpose cleaner. For more information, check out the website here.



WANT TO WIN? One winner receive a set of the bathroom cleaner and the toilet bowl cleaner from Nature's Source. To enter, leave a comment on this post and tell me either your least favorite thing to clean, or your best cleaning tip. Deadline to enter is Monday, March 9th at Midnight. Please include your email address with your comment. Winner must provide a U.S. mailing address.

  1. I really don't like cleaning the bathroom! I actually had a discussion with my MIL last week about how I wish I could hire someone to just clean the bathroom. She agreed and has even went as far as asking a house cleaner how much it would be to come clean her bathrooms for her-lol!

  18. Thanks for the giveaway...Our most unpleasant cleaning task has got to be the tiled shower; the bathroom in question has no window for ventilation (just skylights for light), and only a fan / heat lamp combo vent...as a result, any cleaning product worth it's salt gives off quite a bit of fumes, combined with the moisture, to make the cleaning job more like a Hazmat emergency at a chemical weapons facility.

  42. Cleaning the toilet is at the bottom of my list of fun things to do!! Perhaps it's because I can't find an effective, environmentally-friendly product to use. I'm hoping to win this contest so I can try Nature's Source on my toilet!!

  43. I don't have a favorite thing to clean. I actually hate cleaning, but can't stand it when something is unclean. Go figure. I really want to try their bathroom cleaner. All of the natural bathroom cleaners that I have tried don't clean real great, so I am looking forward to trying this one! Thanks for the giveaway.

  44. Cleaning the bathroom, specifically the toilet, is my least favorite job. But it's something you can't skip. Or gloss over. I'd love to have something that made it better.

    ReplyDelete
  45. My least favorite thing to clean is the toilet. The brush is gross and I just don't like sticking my head in there. Oh, and most toilet cleaners smell bad.

  49. I pretty much use the master bath and the mister uses the spare so he gets to clean that. But I hate cleaning up after him in the kitchen. he can't multitask so after he cooks it is like a bomb went off. the sink is full the stove is a mess. that is the worst. but the toilet isn't so bad cause I know it was all just me! (and no guests use it cause it closed off!)

  63. My least favorite thing is actually dusting! Especially when there is all kinds of stuff you need to move out of the way first and then put back.

    ReplyDelete
  64. Christina - xristya@rock.com - Like everyone else, I dislike cleaning the bathroom, AND dusting (because I'm allergic to dust) and maybe this would help with the former chore!

  65. I'm with the crowd. I hate cleaning toilets and bathrooms in general. Even the shower - I want a maid!

    ReplyDelete
  66. ohhhhh!!! i clean a daycare center, and honestly if I use this and am happy w/ it (i'll probably buy it if I don't win it!) I'll more than likely be suggesting it to our owners to buy for all of the centers! I have a son myself, and it drives me NUTS how toxic all of the cleaning solutions are that are used at daycare centers. Especially the glass (well, it's that plastic glass) that is on the baby gate in the infant room..I have to clean w/ windex daily from all of the baby's mouths & fingers....yuck! Also, I agree on the whole artificial clean smell. I recently bought 'method' spray for my shower, and I love it. It smells SOOO much better than anything else I used for my shower before.

    ReplyDelete
  67. Well like many people I'm sure my least favorite thing to clean in the toilet. EWWWW.....

  70. My least favorite thing to clean is the shower. It seems to take forever and gets gunky again pretty quickly.

  71. Definitely the shower. You'd think all that running water would wash the grime away and keep it nice and clean. Instead it always takes the most scrubbing. Thank you for the chance to win.

    ReplyDelete
  72. I do not like doing any of it, but I will think my least favorite is washing dishes. It always seems that when I have it all done, I turn around and they are all a mess again. Thank you.

  91. The toilet is the worst!
    To clean green one thing you can do is when you are going to wash towels use a slightly damp on and run it over your bathroom mirror. No lint, no waste and it does a good job!
