Shaklee Basic H2 Organic Super Cleaning Concentrate


Pros: Has 1000 uses, economical

Cons: None...not a one!

This would be my favorite green cleaner out there. It does not leave a film after cleaning, it has no scent, it works on everything from ovens to toilets and it is the most economical choice I have ever found. I would not know what to do if I was without this stuff...I even use it for bubble bath!


Pros: Excited about fewer cleaning products

Cons: Not enough user information I can find that's practical and not just a sales pitch

I just took all the cleaning products out of my house and replaced with Shaklee.  Very frustrating that I can't just find a site that explains exactly how and what to use for all my cleaning.  It's taken me a week just to look around on the web and figure out what to use on what and to begin to create an excel sheet with all this info so I don't have to stop and research every time I want to clean something.  I have a concern about what to use on the toilet bowl.  I've read about Basic G on this site and will investigate that, so for now I will continue to use toilet bowl cleaner with bleach which I hate.....


Pros: Cleans everything, All natural, non-toxic

Cons: none

I was introduced to the Shaklee Get Clean line of cleaning products and have never switched back. They are so versatile and can clean anything and are very very cost effective. I have actually become a Distributor because I loved the product so much.


Pros: Highly concentrated = makes multiple strength cleaners - truly economical - Green Seal Certified

Cons: There are none

I have used Shaklee products for years including the original Basic H which we thought was great but the new formulation of H2 is even better!  It can be used to make different strength cleaning solutions (window, general purpose, degreaser, etc.) and last literally for months.  One 16 Oz. bottle of H2 concentrate makes scores of each if the different cleaning strengths making it extremely economical and it saves on shipping, packaging and waste disposal as well. 

In my opinion, this is the greenest of the green cleaners including homemade concoctions made from baking soda (derived from a mined mineral - trona); hydrogen peroxide (an industrial chemical product), or even vinegar (a commercial chemical product that sometimes comes from petroleum) since the cleaning agents are derived from plans (coconut and corn).


Pros: concentrated, saves dollars in cleaning products and packaging

Cons: Remembering to use only ONE drop in spray bottle!

Basic H, amazing and safe for our home.  There are no odors left behind, but only CLEAN!  I really feel

good about using this product, knowing I am not exposing my family to toxins on surfaces in our home.  It is so concentrated that it lasts forever, can be mixed in various concentration for windows, grease, carpet spotting, washing the dog, the many uses.  It takes a bit of education to learn how to

use it...but I try new ways of using it everyday.  I highly recommend trying it!  Remember to read

directions because it is very different from other cleaners in that it is concentrated and you don't need

to use a lot of it when making solutions.  The high concentration of Basic H allows us to save product

packaging, the bottles are also recyclable.  Awesome!


Pros: works great, pretty economical

Cons: more expensive than homemade alternative

 I really like this product.  It is expensive to buy initially but it lasts longer than anything I've ever seen so it seems worth it to me.


Pros: Economical, great on windows, degreaser, general cleaning

Cons: Not a disnfectant

Whe I bought my bottle of H2 I was told it has 1000 uses.  This is no exaggeration.  I use it on glass, counters, floors, carpet, everything.  I used a little on the shirt my husband wears when he does engine work and got all of the oil out.  I've had in since October 2007 and haven't made a dent in the bottle.  I threw out or gave away the window, carpet, and general cleaners and degreasers.  I won't buy anything else for general cleaning.


Shaklee has a germicide, Basic G, that is just as awesome. 


Pros: 1,000 uses, Green Seal Certified, no film left behind, no scent

Cons: can't think of any

This product is what sold me on Shaklee's Get Clean line of products and converted me to a full blown "green" product user! I have converted many friends as well. Once they try it they are sold.


I had tried several other brands of "green" cleaning products but was never satisfied they were doing a good job. When I found Basic H2 I found my answer! Nothing cleaned my stainless appliances as wonderfully as this (not even the caustic cleaners I used in the past). My floors have never looked so clean - no sticky residue left behind - just clean floors. I use it to wash fruits and vegetables, clean toilets, sinks and tubs. Wash delicate clothes. It's an amazing degreaser!


You can get 3 spray bottles from Shaklee to make up different concentrations: windows and glass, all-purpose and degreaser (you could use your own bottles if you like but their graphics are so great - somehow I think they make cleaning more fun).


I have been using it for 10 months and I'm only half way through my second bottle - that just amazes me! This stuff is so concentrated it lasts and lasts ... very economical and the best clean you can get from a green cleaner (if you ask me).
