One of the subjects we get a lot of questions on here at SafeMama™, is about non-toxic, earth friendly cleaning products. And I’ll admit, I’m always on the lookout for these products too. The majority of the stuff that I’ve used, doesn’t work, or it still smells funny and I have to wonder exactly what’s in it. Because of this, I usually fall back to my old standby, vinegar, water and baking soda, which works great, but there are times, that I don’t want my house to smell like a salad bar, and I still need a glass cleaner that cuts through toddler finger prints, dog drool and water stains, to name a few. We have a kid, we have dogs, which means this house never stays clean for more than 3 nanoseconds.

So when I stumbled upon Simply Neutral cleaning products during my research, I was excited. Simply Neutral was created by Maggie, who has very sensitive skin and started reacting to the chemicals in conventional cleaning products, which she was using to clean homes. She set out to make up her own and after much trial and error, created the Simply Neutral line. The ingredients that are used in Simply Neutral are derived from corn sugar, palm kernel oil and have the pH equivalent of clean water, making them quick to biodegrade. This line is great for anyone, especially for those who have asthma, allergies or skin sensitivities.

But how does it work? It works fantastically!! I rarely find a cleaning product line that I’m in love with. And I say that with complete honesty . I put it through my “stainless steel” test. And it passed with flying colors. The only other thing that works on my fridge is vinegar. Simply Neutral’s no VOC (volitale organic compounds) glass cleaner made my fridge sparkle with no streaks. My husband loved the green tea and citrus all purpose cleaner (what, you don’t have a husband that cleans?), especially the scent, which is big, because he’s really picky about scents. The non-abrasive cleaner cuts through the toughest grease without scratching. Not only do I feel clean, but I don’t feel worried that the products I’m using might still be unsafe.

The best part is, when you buy their Go Green Starter Pack, you get FOUR great bags, including two of the produce bags, which I absolutely love. They’re very well made, and large enough to hold quite a bit of produce, which helps to avoid using more unnecessary harmful plastic bags into the house.

Award Winner: We’re gearing up to start recommending products that get the new SafeMama™ “Seal of Approval” rating, which we’ll post more about soon, but I’m going give Simply Neutral the first official SafeMama™ Seal of Approval.
