Under the Kitchen Sink

I asked some of my FACEBOOK FOLLOWERS what they wanted to see and one of the topics that was brought up was cleaning under the kitchen sink.  This was something I really did need to do since I switched cleaning products.

Here is what it looks like now, after I removed all the poisons.  Although, now that I see the picture, I think I'm going to go back and clean the bottom of the cabinet!!! 

But let's talk about what I took out of my kitchen cabinet.

After I took all this stuff out, it occurred to me, what on earth am I going to do with all this stuff?  Did you know that all of these things you spray around your house to get things "clean" can't be disposed of in the regular garbage or down the kitchen sink?  E-How puts it best, "Household cleaners and chemicals can become hazardous waste if they are not used properly or are not used up entirely. Household chemicals should not be thrown in the garbage or disposed of down the sink because of the possibility of contaminating the ground or water systems." 


Anyone else hearing that?!?  You can't put this stuff in the garbage and down the sink because they are worried about contaminating the ground and our water (don't get me started on our drinking water...) but it is okay to spray this stuff all over our homes where our children play.  Then there are all the warning labels on these things.  What made me laugh more were the ones that said things like "quality control ingredients" and "shining ingredients."  Makes me wonder what those ingredients are that make them not want to list it on the label.  No thank you.  I am so glad I am using Shaklee's Get Clean products that I know work and are 100% safe for my family.

Maybe this got you thinking?  I'd love to hear from you on my facebook page.  Or you can check out Shaklee's products by clicking below.  Remember, all of Shaklee's products are super concentrated so you are getting a much better value than what you can buy at Walmart!


  1. So well said Aimee. I use Shaklee as well now and I still think about all the horrible chemicals I used in the past. I have now properly disposed of my chemical cleaners with my local town. Let's hope they are getting rid of them the right way. And it was free for us to drop them off with the town. Happy and Safe cleaning Aimee!!! :) I found your blog through our Members only Facebook page. ;)

  2. so what did you do with it all ?


So glad you stopped by! I'd love to hear your thoughts!
