Product Review: BabyGanics Healthy Home Products

As a mom, I am always looking for products that are safe for my children at a reasonable cost and convenient to purchase. As a mom of two very messy boys, I am always looking for products that are tough on messes too.

I was very excited when I saw BabyGanics Healthy Home products for cleaning. These natural/organic cleaners are non-toxic and chemical free, while having excellent performance. The folks at Healthy Homes were nice enough to send me some samples to try.

The first product I tried was the All Purpose Cleaner. I LOVED this product. It was great for cleaning my son’s messy high chair. It cleaned as well if not better than comparable cleaners, yet was so gentle. I felt so much better using a product for my little ones tray. It also left a great shine. I used both the unscented and lavender scents. Although the lavender was very natural smelling, I felt it was a little strong for baby items and I preferred the unscented. Also the unscented is a better buy if you can get hubby to clean because mine complained it was a little floral smelling for him too. The lavendar was great in the bathrooms though and left them smelling great!

Next was the Glass and Surface Cleaner. This also did a great job cleaning. I was amazed at how well it did on the greasy stove and again left a great shine. Shine without the streaks.

The final product I tried was the Tub and Tile Cleaner, because as you can tell from my previous post, I hate cleaning and I especially hate the bathroom so I put this off as long as possible. Let me first admit, I do not clean the tub as much as I should so this was a tough job for the strongest cleaner. I followed the instructions on the label to just spray it on and wipe with a paper towel. To be honest, this really was not doing the job. I decided to spray it on and leave it for a few minutes, trade a paper towel for cleaning rag, and with some strong scrubbing it cleaned up great. Yes, it was a little more work than usual but it was worth it to avoid using those strong chemicals on something my little ones are soaking in. Again, it shined up really well when I was done. The next job was the sink, which cleaned up quickly and easily as all the other items.

The best part of this product is that it is very reasonably priced and available at local stores. Look for them at Babies R’ Us, Walmart, Giants, and Bed, Bath & Beyond, as well as other local pharmacies and grocery stores. (Find a store near you). Online prices range from $4.59 for the 12oz. to $5.99 for the 32oz. They have a Floor Cleaner available $8.99 that I did not try. They also have a Healthy Homes Cleaning Kit that includes one of each of their products in either 12oz or 32oz. for $19.99 or $23.99 respectively that is a great way to sample each of their products. All products are available in Unscented and Lavender.
