Review and Giveaway: Green Nest

Today we have our first catering tasting.  I'm nervous because I always mess up business deals.  As a good friend suggested, I need to keep food in my mouth so I don't say anything I'll regret! :)

Moving right along...
My "Green Soapbox" is overflowing with soap alternatives, thanks to many supporters.

Green Nest sent me a great eco-friendly product: Green Nest All Purpose Cleaner.

It comes in a concentrated formula (see 4 oz smaller bottle) that you pour into another container (such as the spray bottle they supplied) and add water, according to your cleaning needs.

Green Nest cleaner is a simple formula that requires water to activate it's goodness, that then breaks down completely into water and carbon dioxide in 27 Days.

At first I though I better get cleaning - no fair watching the grime collect! I must use it all in 27 days! (Let's be fair though, I wipe down the counters daily.)  But there's no need to use the concentrated formula all at once.  Their site contains dilutions for use of the cleaner on different items.

Important Features about All Purpose Cleaner from GreenNest.com:
* Is environmentally safe.
* Is 100% readily biodegradable.
* Is non-carcinogen/non-corrosive.
* Is Water Based.
* Has a Neutral pH Factor 9.5+/-0.4
* Is odorless and colorless.
* Is economical.
* Saves time and labor.
* Is safe on any washable surface.
* Will remove oil stains from driveways.
* Will not attack wax or paint.
* Requires no rinsing.
Each 4 ounce bottle of concentrate will make 2 gallons or 8 quarts of all purpose cleaner.  The average retail cost per quart is $1.13

I feel good about my experience with Green Nest cleaner:  it cleans well,  it lacks a chemically-gross smell, and makes me feel good about not killing the fishies in the sea.

And you too can have all of the above!  
Buy it:   for $15.95 you can purchase your own from GreenNest.com

or Win It here!  One lucky winner will get a 4oz bottle of concentrated Green Nest All Purpose Cleaner, a spray bottle, and a $10 gift card to GreenNest.com (which has many other lovely products to choose!)
