Green Works Blog Tour and Giveaway!

Guess what came in the mail last week? This fantastic package of cleaning products. I had never tried the Green Works line before. I have my old faithful standbys. But when I was approached by Mom Central Canada to try these environmentally friendly products out, I thought I would give it a go. I have to admit I was wary about them. I've tried other products labelled as good for the environment or natural before and haven't been too impressed. Though I like the idea of being better for the environment than what I currently use, I still want my house to be clean.  I've found other products lacking in their ability to actually get things really clean.

This line was different. I was surprised and I was impressed. I used them from the top to bottom of my house (and you know with 3 kids how out of sorts a house can get in a week). When I was finished the house was truly clean, with no chemical smells and no streaks. I would buy these again and I'm glad I had the chance to try them out because I might not otherwise have picked them up off the shelf.

Mom Central is offering one of my readers the chance to try them out too! To enter, just leave me a comment below telling me either, what your favorite Green Works Product is, or, (if you are like me and hadn't tried them before) why you would like to try out Green Works.  Please leave an email address as well so that I can get a hold of you if you win!  Contest runs this weekend only (April 14th) and is open to Canadian residents only.  You may enter across multiple blogs, but can only win from one of them.

  1. Hey Kristen,
    Love your blog! :)
    I've never tried the products, but was thinking of trying them in my classroom. I'll be going to Sobey's to grab some.
    Silvia :)

  2. I have tried the all purpose spray and it was great! I am a lazy cleaner (as if you didn't know that) and so anything that I can spray on and wipe off quickly makes me happy!

  3. i have never tried them before but would like to. Anything to be greener in our house and the world.
