To Clean or Not to Clean……..A Giveaway!

on November 8, 2011

Some people have this image of me that I am a house cleaning freak. If that’s you, you may want to stop reading now. But please don’t. I like it when you read my blog.

So because I dislike cleaning so much, and because it seems to be a never ending job around here, I was pretty chuffed to be asked to try JAWS products and write what I thought of them.

Here’s what I was sent (I used them a few times before I photographed them):

* Glass & Hard Surface Cleaner (blue)
* Bathroom Cleaner / Deodoriser (purple)
* Multi-Purpose Cleaner / Deodoriser (orange)

Each spray bottle comes ready to use & has a refill attached. The Just Add Water System (JAWS) is simple – once the bottle is empty, place the refill cartridge in the bottle, add water to the indicator line (on the back label) & shake to mix them. Then voila! Ready to go again.

I love that each bottle is 946ml……that’s almost a whole litre! Most other cleaners come in 500ml bottles. These babies are gonna last for AGES!

I have been using the blue one on the bathroom mirrors in particular (because I hate cleaning windows) and it smelt so much better than other cleaners I have tried. And you know those spots that usually take some elbow grease to remove? (please tell me you have them too)…Gone! With a spray of this & a wipe with my cloth. I like that. And I can use it for my hard surfaces like the vanities and the kitchen bench. But I have been trialling the other bottles for those jobs.

The purple one has been getting a workout on the bathroom vanities and the toilets. I have to admit I don’t like the smell very much but the product does get my bathrooms clean. With the small amount of effort I like to put in. Effort vs smell? Effort wins so this cleaner’s a winner.

The multi-purpose cleaner & deodoriser has become acquainted with my kitchen. I like how my bench tops come up but don’t think it brings the fridge door up to scratch. It smells nice too, which I wasn’t expecting. I wish the smell lasted longer – I like to smell the clean, unlike others who can’t stand the lingering scent of cleaners. It’s a personal thing, I guess.

Now, if you are an environmentally aware person, you would love to know that jaws cleaning products are biodegradable (why does that look misspelled) and each bottle can be reused up to 26 times, simply by purchasing complete bottle the first time, then refills when it is finished. This is what’s available in the range:

JAWS products:
  • JAWS Bathroom Cleaner/Deodoriser (plus one cartridge)- $6.99 (RRP)
  • JAWS Glass & Hard Surface Surface Cleaner (plus one cartridge) – $6.99 (RRP)
  • JAWS Multi-Purpose Cleaner/Degreaser (plus one cartridge) – $6.99 (RRP)
  • JAWS Bathroom Cleaner/Deodorise Cartridge (two pack) – $5.99 (RRP)
  • JAWS Glass & Hard Surface Surface Cleaner Cartridge (two pack) – $5.99 (RRP)
  • JAWS Multi-Purpose Cleaner/Degreaser Cartridge (two pack) – $5.99 (RRP)

Do you know that we Aussies spend a whopping $700 million dollars a year on cleaning products, generating 44 million tonnes of waste. Imagine the difference we can make by making the simple switch to the jaws system. Now that would make my son Liam’s environmentally savvy school teacher very happy!

The lovely people at JAWS have given me not one, but TWO packs to give away. Yay!!!! Each pack contains what is in my photo (up there – if I knew how to do an arrow I would – lol) – 1 x 946ml Glass & Hard Surface cleaner with refill attached; 1 x 946ml Bathroom Cleaner / Deodoriser with refill attached; and 1 x 946ml Multi-Purpose Cleaner / Deodoriser with refill attached. So there will no longer be any excuses for not cleaning.

How do you enter? Easy – be a follower of my blog (existing or new – make sure you let me know in your comment) and leave me a comment on what you think about cleaning. The giveaway will close at 8pm on Saturday 19 November, with the two winners to be chosen at random. Open to residents of Australia only.

Hope you win!
