*CLOSED* Review and Giveaway: Sun & Earth



I like having a clean house, but I DO NOT like to clean. And I'm willing to bet that many of my readers share the same sentiment. However, I've noticed that one thing can make cleaning more enjoyable for me: a pleasant scent. Sun & Earth products immediately won me over with their natural and refreshing citrus fragrance. The aroma of citrus tends to energize as well as refresh. I'm not sure if it was that or how impressed I was with how well the Sun & Earth cleaners performed, but I have to admit that I actually enjoyed the cleaning I did to write up this review!

Sun & Earth has been a leader in making strong, effective and environmentally safe cleaning products for more than 20 years! Their products are vegan and cruelty free! Sun & Earth generously provided me with their laundry detergent, all-purpose cleaner, dish soap, and hand soap for review.

The first product I tried was the Sun & Earth Liquid Hand Soap, I like how mild it is while still effective at cleaning. I noticed that the pump dispensed just the right amount of soap, as opposed to other pumps that squirt out way too much. I'm an obsessive hand washer so getting the right amount of soap is important otherwise I go through a bottle too quickly and it gets expensive! On top of this due to my frequent hand washing, I often get dry skin, yet Sun & Earth hand soap kept my hands moisturized and smooth.

Next I tossed a load of laundry in the washer with the Sun & Earth laundry detergent. Sun & Earth Deep Cleaning Formula Laundry Detergent is hypoallergenic and safe for use on the entire family's laundry, including baby clothing. Plus, since I recently started running again, I've added another criteria to my list of performance needs from a detergent. It is challenging to get the synthetic fabrics used in athletic clothing smelling fresh and clean after a long workout, unless you use a detergent that can handle the job. I was very pleased to discover that Sun & Earth detergent left my entire load of laundry smelling wonderful, including my running clothes.

Sun & Earth All Purpose Spray Cleaner can be used in every room of the house, for a wide range of cleaning jobs. While cleaning the bathroom, I used Sun & Earth all-purpose cleaner on practically every surface, including the shower, counters, toilet, and floor. It left my bathroom sparkling clean and smelling lovely. You can see below how my faucet is now shiny and residue-free.

Another job that Sun & Earth all-purpose cleaner had no difficulty tackling was spills in my fridge. I find myself wiping down the kitchen counters and stove every day with Sun & Earth all-purpose cleaner on a daily basis now to keep it clean and smelling fresh!

With Sun & Earth Xtra Concentrated Dish Liquid a very small amount goes a long way. It also cuts grease and food build up! I typically don't use any dish soaps with fragrance to clean my son's bottles, yet considering the ingredients in Sun & Earth are all natural and hypoallergenic I knew it would be safe!


What I love about Sun & Earth products:
- They clean effectively!
- Citrus Scent!
- Affordable prices and a little goes a long way = savings!
- Short list of all-natural ingredients and as far as I'm concerned, the shorter the list, the better!
