First off, I owe you an apology.

I have been remiss in my posting. I have good reasons.... all of which are too long and boring to get into. Basically, it has to do with the house and all that is going on. I will post on our work, later.

Yesterday was my 3rd son's birthday. We enjoyed the day with him. I will post about that, later, as well.

But, this post.... THIS POST is about an Earth Day Blog Hop.

This blog hop is hosted by one of my new blogging buddies over at A HOME MADE BY KIKI.

In just a bit, you will want to go over to her place to start the hop. Let me tell you why.

Kiki, is involved in Shaklee products. You can get lots of stuff through her...... including household cleaners. What is cool about this blog hop is that there is a give-away! There are a few things you need to do. They will be posted throughout, AND recapped at the end.

BUT, you have to go see Kiki at the link I posted up above. You have to read the posts in order..... you need to get your letters. Collect all your letters, in order, and enter for a grand prize.

I know.... prizes. That is exciting, isn't it? The grand prize is a $30 Paypal deposit into your account.*


AND, for commenting on this post, you have a chance to win the sample that I am highlighting here. FIVE people will be chosen through random drawing. *

*This give-away is only good for US residents.*

ALSO, you can get a free Shaklee membership with a $30 purchase. PLUS, Kiki has an unadvertised special. You can email her for details at: (OK... so I'm challenged and don't know how, or if I should, hot-link an email address, so you just have to copy and paste.)

Now.... I'm not a tree-hugger, by any means. In fact, I generally prefer the burn, in my nostrils, of bleach, verses some healthy, organic, or some other seemingly *innocent* cleaner. To me.... the searing stench of product is DOING something.

However, I AM cheap. (That is a post for another day. I used to claim I was frugal.... nope.... gotta admit it.... I'm cheap.)
So, here is what I want to show you. It's a concentrated cleaner that you add to water and.... well, you clean with it.

First off.... LOOK HOW TINY THIS VIAL IS! That is why I held it up like this... compared to fingers..... well, this is tee-ninecy!

In fact, small vials need little packaging..... like this. This is what I'm using: the Basic H2. It takes 2 drops for 16 oz water.

ONLY TWO DROPS!!! That's quite a bit of cleaning solution!

Remember that I like "the burn?" Well, if you don't, then this is for you. There was absolutely NO smell.... a bit sad.... the head-rush is kinda cool. BUT, if you are into that sort of "no-odor" type of thing. LOL! (What is really funny is that my hubby is shaking his head because the "No-Smell Rule" is Life Rule #1.) I really can't explain WHY my eyes are rolling up in the back of my head.... except to say I was REALLY trying to smell something.

OK.... here, I've sprayed down my mirror in the dining room. I mean, to wipe down a sink or a counter.... well, I can do that with water. But, a mirror? Well, let's see how it goes.

If you look on the right side of the photo below, that is the frame of the mirror. I am actually pointing into the mirror, looking at the reflection of the window looking out to our backyard. There are NO streaks. And, please believe me when I say that I did not scrub, retouch, or go back with a different glass cleaner. Nor did I use a microfiber rag, newspaper, or lint-free cloth to *buff.* Nope.... just a regular rag.

All-in-all, I'm OK with my experience.

Will I become a member of Shaklee? I don't want to say "no" right off the bat.... I just don't know. Right now, I still like to feel the singe of my nostril hairs.

What am I getting for this? Nothing.... except a link to my blog from the person in front of me. I get no money. I only got that tiny vial of concentrated cleaner. However, I DO like free stuff. So, I will be reading these blogs to submit my own entry.

How do you do that? Well, let's cover the steps:

First, start at A Home Made by Kiki.
Next, hop your way, in order, through the blogs.

Be sure to record your letters from each post. MY LETTER IS THE LETTER "r." Keep them in order.

You *must* become a follower, via Goggle Friend Connect, of Kiki's blog. A *follow* to my blog and a shout-out on your facebook page can snag you some extra entries.... so leave me a comment as to what you did..... and THAT gets you an extra entry, as well.

NEXT, go here: (Don't forget to keep getting your letters.)

Finally, take your time. Get to know these folks. Enjoy learning about some Shaklee products. You have until midnight (ET) on April 30th to get your entry in.

I hope you will join us for this Earth Day Blog Hop. I think it's gonna be fun!!!

Have a great weekend, and if I don't talk to you, remember:

I'm stopping by from the blog hop. My favorite thing about the H2 was no smell!

Happy Earth Day, stopping by via the blog hop!

"the burn", that's funny, but I too only knew about the burn. I am happy to get away from it myself, plus can now get the kiddos in on wiping down counters with the H2 and not have to put them in a hazmat suit to do so.
