I consider myself natural and thrifty, meaning I like to find a good balance in my life. Something I do not budge on is natural and safe cleaners to use in my home. Publix put out some great coupons in one of their fliers recently that would have made most of the Clorox Green Works products .50 cents each or less. So I thought this would be a great way to try out some of these products.
I walked down the cleaner aisle and looked at the ingredient lists on all of the Green Works products. From the dish-washing soap to the multi-surface cleaner; I checked them all.
Two of the worst ingredients that are in all household items were in these products: Propylene Glycol and Sodium Laurel Sulfate. After seeing these two ingredients, I didn’t need to read on. There was no need to. Just the presence of these two chemicals voided GreenWorks’ claims at being green.
If you use regular cleaners in your home, these would be a step in the right direction. But if you are like me and only use natural cleaning products, then Green Works is not the way to go. Do a quick search on these two ingredients and you will see why I don’t recommend these products. So please don’t fall for the “green” hype that Clorox puts out for their “Green” Works products. I encourage you to be knowledgeable and always be aware of what you are spending your money on.
Suffice it to say I did not pick up these products, even though they were a bargain with coupons.
Please Note: This post is not meant to spark a debate. It is just my natural and thrifty opinion of a product.
