I've mentioned in the past that I'm not all that "green" but I have been trying. Having children totally changes your awareness of things that you never really worried about before you become a parent. As soon as I became a mother I developed OCD like tendencies when it came to two things; 1. My house being was an obsession and it had to be spotless and sparkling all the time. 2. Not using anything toxic or not safe for babies in my house. I used to freak out when my husband would come home from work smelling even slightly suspicious. Though some things have changed since then my obsession with keeping my house clean and my babies safe has not.

When I was asked to review the BabyGanics line of cleaning products I immediately said yes because after doing some research on the products I realized that these were exactly what I needed to be using in my home. BabyGanics was founded by two "compulsive, clean freaks" and there products are not only safe for the environment they are also safe to use around kids and pets!
I received the BabyGanics Essentials kit which includes; The Grime Fighter all purpose cleaner, Dish Dazzler foaming dish and bottle soap, Breathin Easy Air Freshener in Lavender, The Grime Fighter all purpose wipes, and The Germinator foaming hand sanitizer. I have to admit that I was skeptical at first about how well these products would work (because for some reason people seem to equate the smell after cleaning (which are the chemicals people) with clean and these products (except for the air freshener) were fragrance free.

The first of the BabyGanics products I tried was the Grime Fighter all purpose cleaner and I used it everywhere; I was pleasantly surprised at how well it worked and amazed that it got the job done as well as the leading cleaners without all of the chemicals. I was also very impressed with the hand sanitizer, there are so many times that I want to put hand sanitizer on my sons hands (he is a boy after all and he gets into quite a bit of stuff that he shouldn't) but I refuse because all of the alcohol in the hand sanitizer scares the crap out of me. BabyGanics hand sanitizer is alcohol free and it has been a Godsend in our house. The product I was most impressed with though was the Dish Dazzler bottle soap; my daughter's formula is a hypoallergenic blend and its quite possibly the most revolting thing I've ever seen put into a baby bottle. The formula separates within the first 30 minutes of mixing it turning it into a stinking oily mess that it very hard to get clean. The first bottle I cleaned with the Dish Dazzler soap I was amazed...not only did it get rid of the oily residue that my normal brand of dish detergent usually leaves behind but it also got rid of the horrible smell that seems to never leave her bottles. Honestly I would pay any price to get that nasty stuff out of her bottles and this stuff worked... kind of makes me wonder why in the world I was soaking her bottles in the other stuff all of this time with no results...all those chemicals and they still couldn't get the job done like the Dish Dazzler!

If you're looking for cleaning products that are safe for your family and are also earth friendly then BabyGanics just might be it, they have an entire line of cleaning products from laundry detergent to floor cleaner. Whatever your cleaning needs BabyGanics has you covered!
