I used the concentrated cleaner when I mopped my kitchen the other day. It did a nice job, better than the Citra-solv I usually use, and there wasn't an overpowering smell, either. I noticed the directions said to use cold water, not hot. I wonder why that is? Any chemist mommas out there know why?

I'm skeptical because it's still made by Clorox. The thing I love about my vinegar/water/orange EO mix is that if my son sprays himself in the face with it (you never know! ), I know it's just vinegar/water/orange EO and the only harm that'll come to him is a nasty taste in the mouth.

I dont know, but its a good thing since it uses less energy when you dont have to heat the water first!

Im skeptical too.
Although, I do think it'll be a great tool for mainstream America.....
I just can't trust a big money hungry corporation.
Plus, it really erks me that im sure they are jumping on the green living bandwagon. Its trendy right now and they know they can make money.
Im not going to support that.

and only that line isn't tested on animals?:
Too sneaky for me.

I hear you brr. I think it's great for a lot of people out there who want to be greener but don't want to stray too far from their normal way of doing things. But for me personally, I'd rather give my money to companies that have been doing the right thing all along, like ecover, or seventh gen. when I don't make my own.

I bought all of them and loved them. I like all of you dont like that fact they are probably still testing the other lines they have on animals. I (before I got smart)used to use regular clorox because that is what the rest of my family used when i was a kid just trained i guess.
I loved the products. I like the smell and they cleaned my bathroom better then the other clorox products. Have used Method but they get $$ too. I do use the grapefruit one for kitchen it smells good but like i said that gets $$ when you buy all their products but only 13 $ for all the clorox is good for me. I do make my own all purpose stuff and probably still will every once in awhile. I just like the fact that finally they are going green that is all.
