I've used Green Works before and like it. It was great for cleaning the windows and such.

I would really like to try these products, they sound great.

I have a couple of the Green Works products I use for cleaning glass and my front door but it's really hard to break my Lysol and Clorox with bleach habit. I know in my head that the Green products do the same job but there's still that part of me that won't let go of the feeling that unless it's got that smell and I know the germs have been blasted with chemicals, it's not truly clean. :(

I would definitely be interested in trying out Green Works products in my home. Especially over the past few years, I've become increasingly aware of the harshness of so many of the cleaning products out there. If I feel like I need to wear gloves when using a certain product, that raises a red flag for me!
