Natural House Review & Giveaway #BdayBonanza

About: The Natural House Cleaners use an eco-friendly probiotics cleaning method. This creates a beneficial, odor eating ecosystem to digest odors and to naturally drive them OUT from their source. They contain plant based ingredients so they are non-toxic, biodegradable, as well as better for the environment. Sinky and Flushy even break down and digest fats, grease, oil, and solid waste. This is ensuring you that your pipes, drains, and septic are running smoothing at all times without back-ups and clogs.
The cleaners continue to clean and consume grease, grime, germs, fat ,and oil until the next weekly treatment. You heard right- WEEKLY. Not daily cleaning of the toilet, sink, and trash. I mean, we have enough to do, right? No hard work, no sweat, tears, or hard to use tools. So easy and actually fun to use that Natural House earned the Retailer’s Choice Award at the 2011 National Hardware Show!

So how exactly does probiotic household cleaners work?
  • The surfaces in your house are like a garden. If you don’t seed with good plants, weeds will grow. You have the same choice with your household surfaces: sanitize for a moment with harsh chemicals leaving your surface open to recontamination or seed with probiotics to continuously weed out the bad micro-organisms.
  • Traditional cleaners “clean” a surface for a moment in time; the second the rag is finished wiping the surface, that surface is almost instantly polluted once again with ambient dust, dirt, and micro-organisms.
  • Natural House probiotics creates mini-ecosystem on a microbial level that produces enzymes which break down odors, dirt, fats, oil, grease, food scraps, waste and toilet paper products on a continuous basis between applications. This creates a natural, clean, balanced environment that is safe for even the most sensitive members of your natural house.
  • The action is in the foam!  When using your Natural House products be sure and let it foam first to release the cleaning agents before going to the next step on the package directions.
The short and skinny of it is this... our natural probiotic cleaners keep on cleaning long after you've stopped!

My Review
It’s sad to say on my part, but I have never used a “green” product to clean my house, other than dishwashing liquid. I always thought that unless you could smell the “chemicals”, it wasn’t clean enough. Oh boy, was I wrong. Not only was I hurting the environment by using the chemically induced cleaners, but natural products work even BETTER than I thought they might.
I was drawn to these products because of their names. I love the names Sinky, Trashy, and Flushy. They are just so catchy and “different” in a cleaning product. Wouldn’t you just love to leave this out in the open for people to see? What would they think or say? I can’t think about it without laughing. How could they have names like that and NOT be fun to use? 

The first product I used from the Natural House: Probiotic Cleaning Solutions line was Flushy. I wouldn’t have thought that a natural cleaner could do all the things that Flushy does. I always thought it needed chlorine to pass the “clean” test. I admit I was WRONG,  iffy about it, and am now ok to say that I was definitely Wrong. These aren’t words you hear come out of my mouth often, so yes, it was amazing. It is a little packet (like the dishwashing packets) that sort of resemble tiny little pillows.
You just drop it in and watch it foam, wait 5-10 seconds, and then scrub with a toilet brush. It helps to work on hard water stains and mineral deposits on and in the bowl.
It isn’t just a toilet bowl cleaner though, it is also a septic and drain cleaner. So your getting more than 1 product actually. The probiotics travel through your pipes and dissolve anything that may be clogging or stopping it up. It takes out K.O. toilet paper and waste build-up to help you maintain a healthy pipe system.
I had never even actually heard of a product that does THIS. I have heard of products that help AFTER you already have clogs and a stopped up septic system, but never anything to PREVENT it. Now I have. I’m not sure how I lived without it.
Now I am addicted want more. I don’t see how I could possibly live without it now. It takes away the worry that something might happen. I mean, who wants to DEAL with something like this? Certainly not me. I have plenty to deal with as it is. This takes ALL the hassle out of cleaning the toilet. Who wants to use harsh chemicals if they don’t have to?
I am IMPRESSED to the fullest with Trashy. I have never had cleaning a trash can be so easy in my life. I used to take it in the bathroom, fill it up with hot water drop in some dishwashing liquid and scrub. Then dump the dirty water into the toilet, and then rinse and repeat. I hated this. Not only was cleaning the trash a hassle, but it SMELLED horribly. I had tried everything under the sun to try and rid the trash smells, and Notta- nothing. No results. I ended up buying a new trash can every year.
I have had some garbage bags leak and leave a mess in the trash. Let me tell you- it wasn’t such a pleasant site (or smell). I have to admit that when I am washing dishes I scrape the leftovers in the trash. Old food in the bottom of the trash can never be a good thing, right? Right. So when I used Flushy, I was immediately in LOVE.
I was seriously EXCITED to find something that not only took the smell away but made it easier on me to clean. What mom, wife, woman could argue with that? Just because cleaning NEEDS to be done, doesn’t mean I jump for joy when I have to do it. I already have 2 tornados as children who love to make messes for me to pick up.
All you do is spray Trashy in the sides and on the bottom of your trashcan and let it air dry before adding another garbage bag. Who knew cleaning could be so easy?
This is also a “pillow” type little packet that you drop in the drain. You turn the hot water on for 5-10 seconds and watch it dissolve. Pretty cool way to wash all those oils, grease, and germs down without worrying about it. I haven’t had problems of back-ups, but with the rate that we drain hamburger meat and such- it was bound to become a problem at some point.
Sinky takes the old food and grease smell away immediately. All you smell is freshness and CLEAN. A sink? Yes. A clean smelling sink, without using bleach or other harsh products. I didn’t think it was possible. I also didn’t think it was possible that I would REMEMBER to put the packet in WEEKLY without writing a reminder to myself. Promise not to laugh, giggle, or choke a little on your spit? I found myself trying to put Sinky in before the week was over.
Was it because I liked watching them foam and dissolve? Was it that I KNEW my drain was clean? Was it because it was easy peasy and smelled AWESOME?
Find out for yourself.
Natural House wants to give 1 Made.By.Jess reader their own 30 day supply of ALL. Yes ALL. Flushy, Trashy, and Sinky. Wow.
So, on behalf of my daughter turning 3- and knowing that I have to plan a party, buy presents, write invitations, and get her something she doesn’t already have—as well as being around TONS of screaming, squealing kids> I give you Natural House. Keep your house clean without spending tons of time and hard work doing so, so you can have more time to yourself and your family. =)
