Spring Cleaning: JAWS Review and GIVEAWAY

CONGRATULATIONS #2 AS CHOSEN BY RANDOM.ORG! PLEASE RESPOND TO MY EMAIL WITHIN 72 HOURS. THANKS TO EVERYONE WHO PARTICIPATED! ANOTHER FUN GIVEAWAY COMING SOON. HAVE A GREAT WEEK!
 ****************************************************
As much as I try to use only all natural products, sometimes those grapefruit extract based cleaners just aren't enough to get something really clean. This spring cleaning season, I had the good fortune of being able to try out JAWS-the Just Add Water System. JAWS is the refillable, reusable way to clean. Even if the ingredients aren't all natural, they are non-toxic and the product is green in that the packaging is a cartridge and so there are fewer plastic bottles being circulated and distributed (fewer trucks, less petroleum involved in manufacture and transport, etc).

Just fill the reusable spray bottle with H2O, pop in a super-concentrated cleaning cartridge and you’ve got eco-friendly cleaning power wherever you need it. It’s an innovative, easy-to-use, non-toxic* and effective system that reduces plastic in landfills, conserves resources and saves you cash. In fact, when you finish your Just Add Water™ starter kit and buy cartridge refills, you can make 2 full bottles of cleaner for less than $2.00 each. JAWS cleaners use 70% less packaging material, leave 59% less packaging waste, require 59% less energy to transport, reduce water pollutants by 85%, and greenhouse gas emissions by 60%. The company's founding principle makes complete sense, "Stop Shipping Water…It’s the Right Thing to Do."


So I sent Stewart and the boys away for the afternoon and attacked the house from top to bottom. Actually I only managed to clean the top floor--who knew that it would take four hours to clean 3 bedrooms and 2 bathrooms. The JAWS bottles were easy to put together and worked well to clean everything from the scum in the shower stall to the grimy fingerprints on the windows. You can see for yourself how easy it is to use. Knowing that I won't have to buy new bottles when I run out makes me feel better about the fact that the ingredients aren't completely natural. Thanks to the generosity of JAWS International,Ltd., one Random Mommy reader will get the chance to try the system (all 4 varieties of cleaners) on his/her own messes.

A couple tips to going green: use reusable bags for grocery shopping, and #2 which I just recently started, use dryer balls instead of buying dryer sheets.
