Pros: Non-toxic, bio-degradeable, easy to use, versatile.
Most people have used Simple Green or at least seen the commercials for the product that feature its inventor. He created the product in the 1970s based on three requirements:
It had to work.
It had to be safe.
It had to be 100% made in America.
Nearly forty years later, there are numerous Simple Clean imitators on the market, but Simple Green still adheres to these standards. First of all, it does work, and will clean and degrease just about anything. You can use it to clean dishes, pots, pans, bathrooms, tires, engines, vinyl siding, gutter exteriors, windows, and more. With the large bottle pictured here, you dilute it based on how dirty the item being cleaned is. For most household jobs, the lightest recommended dilution is suitable. You may need it to be a little stronger for cleaning vinly siding or degreasing engines. It works very well on the siding and gutter exteriors. You spray the product liberally, let it sit for a few minutes, then was it away with a hose. Since the product is non-toxic and biodegradeable, I do not feel bad about it going into the ground, especially after it is diluted with water.
Simple Green makes it simple to clean bathroom sinks and tubs too. Although the product has a scent to it, it is not overbearing and is not a suffocating chemical order. My in-laws ran a cat rescue shelter for several years and used Simple Green to clean everything due its the lack of fumes. The versatility is also one of its strongest points since it will replace many cleaning products and save money. Many cleaning products that are environmentally friendly and non-toxic do not clean well but Simple Green does. It will remove grease and grime from just about anything and with ease. Little effort or scrubbing is required, and often after applying the product, you can rinse the surface being cleaned with no scrubbing at all.
Sunshine Products (the company name that makes Simple Green and other products) also directs some of its profits from every product sold to the “Everything’s Gonna Be Alright Fund.” EGBAF was started by Simple Green’s founder in 1989 educates children on how to care for the environment in a responsible manner. This is another reason why I feel good about purchasing Simple Green over its imposter products
