Aside from my own soaps, we use vinegar, baking soda, hydrogen peroxide and other “green” cleaning products in our home. Admittedly, some of them do not clean as well as conventional ones so I was excited to try H20 at Home‘s products in return for a review.
Here is what came in the mail: Netepur Soap, Cleaning Clay, Dish Soap, Double Sided Microfiber Sponge and an Essential Multi-Surface Chiffonnette. While I will not review their bar soap as it would be a conflict of interest, I can review their other products.
CLEANING CLAY with Double Sided Microfiber Sponge and Essential Multi-Surface Chiffonnette
The one thing I do have in my cleaning closet is Windex because nothing cleans shower doors and mirrors like it does. However, I read that H20’s Cleaning Clay can be used on ceramic, pots, pans, granite, sinks, ovens, mildew, glass, shower doors, silverware, stainless steel, jewellery and grout. I decided to try its powers on my son’s shower doors, which have not been cleaned purposely (yeah right) in weeks.
This is what it looked like before using the Cleaning Clay on it: pretty cloudy and dirty.
This is what it looked after I applied the Cleaning Clay over it: almost spotless except for the bottom bit that I missed. And I didn’t try that hard.
Cleaning it was very simple, quick and didn’t require tireless scrubbing.
- Soak the small white sponge inside the container with water.
- Place on the white clay and slide it to create a foam.
- Apply this foamy substance all over the dirty glass door with the white sponge.
- Use the scrub side of the Double Sided Microfiber Sponge to lightly mix in and spread the Clay all over the glass door properly.
- Clean off the Clay by rinsing the Double Sided Microfiber Sponge and wipe the door clean with the soft side of the sponge.
- Wipe off excess water with the Essential Multi-Surface Chiffonnette.
Notes on the Cleaning Clay: the results were much better than I was expecting. And it only took a few minutes. I really like this Cleaning Clay.
Notes on the Double Sided Microfiber Sponge: it worked well in bathroom cleaning but I wouldn’t use it to scrub pots and pans. The scrub side is a little too soft for kitchen purposes.
Notes on the Essential Multi-Surface Chiffonnette: I used it recently on my dirty computer screen and not a dust remained on the screen, although I saw some in the air as I cleaned. So, I’m not sure it works quite well in trapping all the dust.
I have both Seventh Generation and Dawn under my kitchen counter. I also use my own handmade coconut soap for pots, pans and dishes. I don’t make my own liquid dish detergent, so I feel this is not a conflict of interest to review their product.
- The bottle is not the easiest to use. I use gloves when cleaning and when I squirt the bottle, half of the detergent goes on my gloves and not where I want it to go.
- That said, two small squirts are indeed enough to clean a whole pot.
- There isn’t a lot of lather, but it cleans well enough.
- Glass cleans and dries off amazingly clear without streaks and water marks. Same with stainless steel.
- The smell does not bother me like commercial products.
- I have not tried it with my gloves off to test for skin sensitivity issues.
Notes on the Dish Soap: the detergent works better than the bottle.
I’d definitely buy the Cleaning Clay and the Double-Sided Microfiber Sponge!
