Casa Beta: Clorox's Green Works Line

Casa Beta: Clorox's Green Works Line

I was recently sent a variety of products from Clorox's new green cleaning line, Green Works.
To hear what I thought about this new line of green cleaning products, just


While I'm definitely not a loyal Clorox user (I am more of a Method gal), I was impressed with their new green line. The ingredients for all of the products come from renewable resources, are biodegradable, and are free from petrochemicals. Green Works cleaners are at least 99% natural, though some of the products include a small amount of synthetic ingredients, such as the preservative and green colorant.

Since I'm sensitive to most conventional bleaches and other cleansers, I was pleasantly surprised by both the efficacy and lack of fumes from these products. The all-purpose cleaner worked well on most surfaces, with the exception of a wine stain, which required additional baking soda and elbow grease to remove the offending mark from our porcelain kitchen countertop.

Additionally, the glass cleaner worked wonderfully and streak-free on mirrors and glass surfaces, and the bathroom cleaner got the tub sparkling clean. In general, I was satisfied with this new line, and can definitely recommend it to Casa readers. And while Green Works will be priced at about a 20 percent premium to standard cleansers, it should still sell for about 10 percent to 20 percent less than other natural cleaners already in the market.

my favorite brand is generic vinegar for cleaning :) i like nature's gate (?) almond scented dishwashing stuff a lot though... i find seventh generation too expensive. i have 2 or 3 favorites for laundry soap so just get whichever of the natural brands is on sale. i don't think i'll be switching to this new clorox line, but has been nice to read your review, Casa.

Thanks for the great review. I think it is great that Clorox and other companies like P&G are making greener products. For laundry I like the Pure Essentials tide and have been looking for cleaners for other areas of the house. I'm starting to replace all of my regular products with greener ones as they run out...can't afford to replace them all at once and don't want to waste!

I like Method products too, but maybe next time I'll check these out if they're cheaper.

I would recommend Melaleuca products. Better than Method and 7th Generation.

Method products have synthetic ingredients as well; they're too chemical-y for me. I think Green Works is an awesome name.

Hmmm, maybe I'll take a look at this the next time I'm shoppping. I've just started trying out Method, and I'm open to looking at other brands too.

Hi Ladies, Here's a link to the ingredient list: Pretty short list. I admit, I was skeptical as well, and will continue to be skeptical and keep an eye out for more articles and information on these products. That said, they work well, they don't irritate my skin or nose, and are cheaper than other green cleaning products. So I have to say, some of my skepticism has been downgraded by the efficacy of the products.

Casa - could you write an ingredients list for us so that we can compare it to our other cleaners. I'm trying to find a good cleaner. I've used Method - not impressed. 7th generation - not impressed. I've used Shakelee Get Clean - impressed but very expensive. Thanks!

Thanks for this review but I think I'm sticking to my seventh generation for now...
