Disinfect With Shaklee Basic G

I love a clean house and killing germs and bacteria is a big part of that! But what are you using to do that job? If you're using bleach you could be doing more harm than good to your family! Bleach is actually considered a pesticide by the EPA.  If you're using bleach to clean your kid's toys, toilets, and in your laundry, you're actually dosing them with a very toxic and harmful pesticide each time!!

Shaklee's Basic G is the perfect safe and effective alternative to bleach! Basic G is biodegradable, nonflamable, and non-toxic. It is super concentrated and one quart will make up to 64 gallons of disinfectant!! That will save you money over all the other disinfectants you may be buying now!!

Just use 3/8 teaspoon to 16oz of water
1 Tablespoon to 1 gallon of water

It cleans, disinfects, and deodorizes in one easy step (once mixed use within 30 days)

Not only does Basic G kill far more pathogens than Lysol, it's residual effectiveness lasts up to 3 days!! Chlorine (bleach) only lasts about an hour!

I use Basic G on just about anything and everything! We use cloth diaper and it is my absolute favorite to deodorize the diaper pail
 Other uses include:
garbage pails

sinks and faucets
pet areas
cutting boards (not around food!)
after preparing eggs, chicken, and meat to kill Salmonella
door knobs

Light switches

And even use as a Weed Killer
1-gallon Water
1-tblspn of Shaklee Basic G
1/2-cup of white vinegar
Makes the best weed killer, and it is safe!

More Info:
For diapers and other problem jobs: Add 1 teaspoon per load to deodorize and disinfect. Helps eliminate diaper rash!
Safe to use as an air freshener.
Safe for stainless steel & aluminum.
It is safe to  use on hard, non-porous surfaces.
Great for disinfecting throughout your house
EPA registered
One quart makes up to 64 gallons
Basic G kills 32 pathogens while Lysol only kills 8 pathogens.

One question we have heard is about the labeling on the bottle.  “If it is non-toxic, why are there warnings on the bottle?”

According to EPA standards, bottles must be labeled according to what is IN the bottle.  Now, remember, more than 80,000 products are not registered with the EPA or labeled correctly.  This is a plus for Shaklee and their reputation for integrity in that it is registered and labeled correctly.  So when it comes to the concentrated form of Basic G, if what is IN the bottle were to be consumed, it is toxic by EPA standards.  However, it is not nearly as toxic as other cleaners. However, in it’s properly diluted form it is completely non-toxic and not harmful at all.

Shaklee did not put it in the Get Clean line because the advertising of that line is all Non Toxic. While Basic G is non-toxic when diluted it is not in it’s concentrated form thus they left it out of the line.

Basic G has a 3 year shelf life and kills 99% of bacteria and it is effective against the following pathogens (6/96):

Streptococcus pyogenes *Vaccinia
Salmonella choleraesuis *Rubella (German Measles)
Candida albicans *Adenovirus type 4

For those of you who love those Clorox wipes, Shaklee has the safer alternative, Germ Off Fragrance Free Disinfecting Wipes! It kills odor-causing bacteria found on hard, non-porous household, kitchen, and bathroom surfaces. Great for cleaning around the toilet. Leaves your bathroom and kitchen fresh and clean. The smart way to clean and disinfect.  I use these often and I try to always have some in the car to use on the go.  You can recycle them too!
