When it comes to our homes and our families, as parents, we find that we want to ensure that the products we use in the home are safe. And when it comes to having a baby in the home, we find that we want those cleaning products that are not only effective, but that are also natural and non-toxic. So when we were sent a selection of the cleaning products from Grab Green to review, I knew that Heather would enjoy checking them out and sharing her thoughts with our readers! You can read Heather’s review below.
First off, I have to say that this is a great company. I say this because they understand families and their products are eco friendly, non-toxic, and very effective at cleaning. For our review we received two different scented laundry pods and two different pods for the kitchen. The Stoneworks Rose Petal Laundry Detergent pods smell like fresh roses, giving our clothes and linens a fresh smell that is not overbearing like an artificial perfume type smell you might find in other detergents. It leaves our clothes clean and with a light fragrance of rose, while getting those tough stains out of my kiddos clothes, even on the stains left over after busy days or when the kids make a mess with spaghetti sauce! I can also appreciate that they are easy to use and anyone can use them, by just tossing 1 pod in for a small/medium load or 2 for a large load and add clothes.
Along with the Rose scent, the second one we received was the 3 in 1 detergent in the scent of Vetiver. Until now, I hadn’t heard of this scent before but I like that it is very unique and is a nice light floral scent. And just like with the other laundry pods, these do a really good job of making our clothes clean, fresh, and soft. The pods dissolve within seconds of hitting the water, and with the tough stain fighter, it gets the stains out that find their way onto our clothes. I found this to be a great choice to go with when my son fell the other day and skinned his knee and the blood soaked through his pants. I was amazed it took the stain right out without having to pre-soak or scrub the stain before placing in the wash. Which for me, I found that having these laundry pods can help make life simpler to tackle when you are busy! I like that both of these pods dissolve quickly, are non toxic, no harsh chemicals, never tested on animal, made in the USA. They are also very effective at cleaning and removing stains, and a affordable option for a safe non toxic cleaner. Another huge plus for me and my family is that they are very gentle on the skin and great for sensitive skin.
When it comes to the kitchen, I found the next set of products to be exactly what I needed to do the job when doing the dishes. The automatic dishwasher detergent we received was scented with lemongrass and tangerine. This scent smelled so good when the dishwasher was running, and I like that the cleaner in the pods cuts through the tough grease and grime on the dishes. If you have kids like I do, and they don’t pre-wash dishes before they make it in the dishwasher, no worries! These little pods will take the toughest of stuff off. Just load up the dishwasher and pop a pod in and start, and when the dishwasher is done, I like that those dishes we put in come out sparkling clean every time.
Then when it comes to those pots and pans, we found the cookware and bakeware cleaner pods to be the perfect remedy. Just like with the dishwasher tablets, we received these in lemongrass and tangerine scents as well. What a very pleasant smell and I have to say I love these things! We all get a bit busy from time to time and either burn something or let a dish sit too long before cleaning it. These are perfect for those times! You just add some hot water and a pod to the dish and 15 minutes later it pretty much rinses right off. I found this out after I accidentally let my peach and sugar mixture boil over on my glass stove top. What a mess it was! The sugar stuck to my glass stove and I was so afraid of getting it off without scratching the surface. It was stuck to the bottom of the pot as well but it was that stove top that had me really worried. I was pleased to find that my worry was soon gone after I put one of these in some hot water on a baking sheet then stuck the pot in it, after a short time, that burned on sugar came right off. I took another and put it in a glass of hot water to dissolve and rubbed the water on my stove top, and yep you guessed it, it came off easily! Truly amazing. This is one product I will keep on hand and is absolutely the best thing to have in any home! Which in all, makes the Grab Green line of cleaning products a selection that I can trust, especially with having babies in the home, and one that I will also be recommending to others!
Product received, thank you to Grab Green as well as the PR for supplying me with a product for this review, all opinions are my own.
