Loving the green in a bottle of Basic H2!
Basic H2 is a bit of a miracle in a bottle! From earth and people friendly to really economical, it's a product that you can feel really good about using!
If you're smart enough to have bought a home from Alvarado Real Estate Group, then you got one of these gems in your welcome bag because they think being green is pretty important too!
Dr Forrest C. Shaklee introduced Basic H in 1960 (Basic H2 came in 2006 to make it even MORE green!), which was a product way before it's time. At the time when many non-earth friendly products were being introduced because they “worked better”, Dr. Shaklee created a product that not only worked as well or better than these products, but was also gentle to the earth as well as to the people exposed to it.
Basic H2 is also so versatile, that it can be used in all areas of your house. It is typically diluted into 3 strengths; windows/mirrors, general cleaning, and de-greasing for those harder jobs. Because Basic H2 is so concentrated, your small 16oz bottle will make 5,824 bottles of Windex! Imagine how many plastic bottles and sprays are saved from recycling and landfill, and how much money you can save, literally thousands!! And because Basic H2 is safe for your family and pets, you can be rest assured that everyone's health is better for it. If anyone in your family has health issues such as allergies or asthma, Basic H2 is a great choice to help decrease any environmental impact that may be adding to the illness.
If you have any questions about Basic H2, or if you'd like to know more about some of Shaklee's other fantastically green and effective cleaners for dishwashing, laundry, and more, please contact Anke Johnson at 608-467-0008 or email firstname.lastname@example.org. Anke is passionate about helping to keep things green, one bottle at a time!

I recently spent the month in Mexico, in a 900 sq. ft. apartment with my husband and two young boys. Our house in Madison is around 1700 sq. ft. with extra space in the basement and the 2 car garage for storage. Surprisingly enough, it is wonderful living in a smaller space. I was a bit worried at […]
