Lily’s Garden Herbals natural cleaners – review and giveaway

EDITED TO ADD: This giveaway has been concluded.

NaBloPoMo – Day 9

In my opinion, there are four things necessary to make a good cleaning product.

  1. It has to be non-toxic.
  2. It has to have a pleasant smell.
  3. It has to be affordable.
  4. It has to get the job done.

Lily’s Garden Herbals natural cleaning products accomplish all of these things.

After our recent run-in with the stomach flu, I needed to do some serious bathroom cleaning. I put Lily’s Garden Herbals All Purpose Clean (All Purpose Cleaner – 32 oz. – $6.50) to the test. The bathroom was sparkling in no time and I didn’t have to worry about keeping the kids at bay while I worked for fear of toxic smells overpowering the house. Made with essential oils and distilled water, the All Purpose Clean is effective and has a pleasant, even refreshing, smell.

I also tried out Lily’s Garden Herbals Glass Clean (Non-Toxic Glass Cleaner – 32 oz. – $5) on our sliding glass door. With two dogs and two little kids in and out of the house all day long, this door needs frequent cleaning. I have to admit it outperformed my simple homemade vinegar and water solution, and smelled better too. And, of course with it being non-toxic, I don’t have to worry if Julian decides to lick the glass. Not that he’s ever done that. ;)

Lily’s Garden Herbals also offers a natural dish cleaner, a toilet bowl cleaner and a wood cleaner, as well as a linen spritzer and antiseptic room deodorizer (which also came in handy after the stomach flu went through our house).

Lily’s Garden Herbals were formulated by Kim Falcone, a mother and herbalist with a deep appreciation for the natural world. All of Lily’s Garden Herbals natural household products are homemade, non-toxic, contain NO chemical ingredients or synthetic preservatives, are biodegradable and never tested on animals.

A percentage of profits from Lily’s Garden Herbals sales are donated to local and global charities in areas of environmental protection, human rights and education.

If you are skeptical about making the switch from commercial chemical cleaning products to natural ones, consider this:

  • There are over 80,000 chemicals in commercial use today. Less than one percent
    have ever been tested for safety, especially for neurotoxic effects.
  • Companies are not required to disclose their complete ingredients in household,
    personal care and cleaning products or to test for safety.
  • Over 200 human health conditions have now been linked to environmental toxins. These include not only cancer but disorders such as autism, depression, anxiety, attention deficit disorder, immune/endocrine system disorders, asthma, and migraines.
  • Children are the most vulnerable to toxins due to their size, weight, and also risk of exposure during critical stages of development that could have life-long consequences.
  • More facts about toxic chemicals in everyday products can be found on this fact sheet provided on Lily’s Garden Herbals’ web site.

  1. very cool… thanks SO much for this recommendation. i have been using windex (with vinegar) and 409. i’ve switched my dishsoap, shampoos (recommendation to a certain brand by YOU!), and body soap to organic and non-toxic substances (this always amazes me what we are putting on our skin and into our air) already but encouragement from others and reminders is what gets me over my hump of making the stance for me and my family! i was actually going to start looking up recipes for the various uses of vinegar for cleaning, BUT NOW i definitely want to try these products and i KNOW i can trust your recommendation, amy! thank you!

    i blogged you here:

  2. I’ll have to check this out! I love method all-purpose and tub and tile cleaners (and I like 3/$8 at Target!) but really hate their glass cleaner.

  3. I currently use cleaning supplies from Don Aslett’s Cleaning Center. As a mom of six, I’ve wanted to try the non-toxic cleaners, but I wasn’t sure if they’d work and sometimes they seemed so expensive. I’d love to try these out and it would also allow my younger kids to help out like they want. Plus, it seems much safer for all the kids, pets, etc.

    Thanks for the chance to win. :)

  4. I use Soft Scrub, but it has such a strong smell that I admit I’m worried about my little one. I’d love to give this a try. Do they have a floor cleaner as well?

  5. I’ve just started the switch to new non-chemical products, so I’ve been trying Meyer’s and Seventh Generation. I don’t know, though, they’re not cutting it on stuff like mold and mildew, so I’d love to try something that you recommend.

  6. I currently use homemade mixture of vinegar and essential oils in a spray bottle. My husband can’t stand the smell of vinegar (even though it dissipates after a few minutes). I am currently searching for something to replace or use in certain areas in the house.

    Over the past few years I have been exploring different natural cleaning products. I used to have an arsenal of mainstream products! It was a strange and serious addiction!

  7. I use Melaleuca everything (and have for the past few years); I have been very impressed with their products but would like to try out another non-toxic cleaner to compare results!

  8. Currently I use alot of different cleaners….like clorox, etc.
    I’ve never heard of this kind before so would love to be able to try it.
    thanks ;)

  9. I would like to win or try these products as I am a self employed mom and mom to be that has a house cleaning service and I need to find an alternative to soft scrub and windex,these chemicals are very efficient for me but are also toxic

  10. I used Method cleaning products for years and then I stumbled across BabyGanics Organic cleaning products I think they work really well and have an great Lavender scent, Has anybody else heard of them?

  11. I own a residential cleaning company, and more and more people are requesting all natural cleaning products like Lily’s. Despite what people think, these products do work and without the nasty odors of a cleaner like Fantastik!

  12. Well, this is a great product! Smells great and does not have a lingering scents after you use it. Just a fresh clean and odor free.

    I took this from their website:

    See just how economically priced and inexpensive it is to use Bio-Enviro “Concentrated Formula” ~ makes gallons of cleaner for pennies.
