Biokleen Review and Giveaway! US Only!

http://crow-clothing.com/pages/galleries/friends/bio_kleen_logo.png

As many of you know, I am an avid cloth diaper user, promoter and lover! I belong to several cloth diapering message boards and everyone gushes about Biokleen products. I have been dying to try them out and put them to the test and luckily, I had my chance! The Biokleen products I received are nothing short of amazing. I had a wonderful time working with the company and it has been an all around positive experience. I know you will get fabulous customer service from these guys!

Jim Rimer founded Biokleen in 1989. He was a sales representative of cleaning chemicals in the commercial and industrial fields and became concerned about the hazards and the ingredients they contained. He actually saw firsthand all of the negative effects the cleaners were having on his customers, including cancer! Biokleen believes in the same standards that Jim had, effectiveness, concentration, non-toxic and environmentally safe! Yay for Jim taking a stand, learning about chemisry and creating natural and very effective cleaning products!

For review I was sent some truly wonderful products! I was sent the All-Temperature Citrus Laundry Powder, the All-Temperature Citrus Laundry Liquid and Bac-Out Stain and Odor Eliminator. I had been desperately wanting to try the laundry products and the Bac-Out since I started cloth diapering, so I was giddy to get to use them!

The Bac-Out is a multi-purpose product, so it doesnt just have to be used on cloth diapers. You can use it on carpet stains, laundry stains and for any general cleaning you need to do! I like to spray my Bac-Out directly onto poo stains on my diapers before I throw them in the pail and I have noticed a world of difference as far as stains and odor! I love that is has Live Enzyme Cultures and Lime Peel Extract. The lime smells heavenly! There is just something so fresh about the smell of citrus! This is my new miracle product and I was thrilled to find it at my local farmer's market and at my Whole Foods.

Next I tried the Citrus Laundry Powder on my regular laundry with cold water. This stuff cleans really well, smells amazing and you only need to use a little bit! More does not equal better in this case! All of my clothes came out smelling fresh and clean. There wasn't an overpowering odor of perfume, just a clean smell! The liquid version of this gave me the same results, so it is really just a matter of preference. Some swear by powder and others swear by liquid. I personally like both and these work equally well!

It makes me really happy to know Biokleen's cleaning products are concentrated, so the bottles are smaller and you only need a little bit. Not only do the products last longer, but it is so great for the Earth! Biokleen also manufactures glass cleaner, fabric refreshers, bathroom cleaner, dish liquid, produce wash, automatic dish powder and gel, and drain care products!

http://planetgreen.discovery.com/buying-guides/cleaning-kits/biokleen-lg.jpg

You can purchase all the Biokleen products at Amazon.com! The Bac-Out sells for around $13.00, a 5 pound box of laundry powder is about $15.00, as well as the 64 ounce bottle of liquid laundry soap!

Here is the full list of online retailers! You can also enter your zip code to find a local retailer near you!

I have recomended Biokleen to my family and friends and it will continue to be a laundry and cloth diapering staple in my house!
