TIRED OF CLEANING YOUR BATHROOM?
HERE ARE INSTRUCTIONS FOR A NO-SOAPSCUM & MILDEW FREE BATHROOM*
Shaklee Get Clean products can help you to remove soap scum, most mildew, and safely disinfect your bathroom without harsh chemicals that damage your lungs and are absorbed into your skin. It is also safe for the environment.
To Get Ready
Overall Cleanup: Getting the old bathroom in shape!
Step 1: Remove soap scum:
Basic H Spray (Ladybug spray unit): Dilute ½ capful Basic H in warm water in the spray unit. Spray on soap scum, let soak for about 30 seconds. Use a Scour Off paste on a scouring pad. Enjoy the fragrance and notice the lack of chemicals in the air and on your skin. Rinse.
Step 2: Remove or Prevent Mildew and Disinfect
Basic G Spray. Dilute ½ capful of Basic G Liquid in warm water in the spray unit. Spray on tile and grout. If mildew is lodged in grouting or seams, brush with full strength Basic G liquid, let set one hour, then rinse. Use to disinfect your trash cans, toilets (especially around the base of the toilets.)
Nature Bright. Need more brightening/whitening? Make a paste of Basic D (Dishwasher concentrate) or Nature Bright (natural enzyme laundry brightener) and Scour Off paste. Brush on with a toothbrush, let set for a while, then rinse.
Basic G wipes can also be used to disinfect light fixtures, door handles, toilet bowl handles, shoes, sandals, purses, car steering wheels, and other surfaces that may be sensitive to water sprayed on them.
Step 3: Remove Film from Mirrors & Windows
Basic H Spray (Butterfly spray unit): Dilute only 2 to 3 drops in water in the spray unit. If you have been using other glass cleaners, you may get streaks until the oil residue they leave is cleaned off. Wipe dry with Shaklee’s special window cloth that does not leave lint particles like paper towels or some cloth rags.
Maintenance: How to Keep the Bathroom Scum-free and Mildew-free
After removing the old soap scum and mildew, follow these directions to better maintain your new, clean and shiny bathroom. You will find that your bathroom does not get dirty as quickly and that it is easier to clean.
Step 1: "Shakleeize" your bathroom. Replace products with Shaklee’s personal care products. There will be no ugly residue collecting in your tub, on the tile or glass walls. No bathtub ring!
Soap: Handwash Liquid Soap (at sinks or in the shower, it is good for the whole body and has a slight lavender fragrance), Meadowblend Bar (oatmeal and vitamin E, great for your skin), or Enfuselle Shower Gel. Good for shaving, too.
Shampoos: Prosante Shampoo and Conditioner
Step 2: Tips to Maintain
If bathtub tiles are very sensitive to mildew, then spray with Basic G after each time after showering. No rinsing required. Sometimes old caulking needs to be removed and new put on. Then Basic G will help keep it white.
Continue to use Basic H for counters and mirrors as needed.
Use a Basic G Spray or Wipes to disinfect.
Use either a few drops of Basic H or Basic G in toilets to keep clean and deodorized.
The Shaklee Difference
Shaklee products are always safe, always work, and are always green.

Feeling the Effects of this Stressful Time?
Here are 3 Shaklee Products to Deal with the Effects of Stress on your body.
This is a special time of concern for our health as the Coronavirus continues to remain active in our country. Maintaining your health and dealing with the stress of the Coronavirus and financial crisis that it is causing, is not an easy task.
In addition to the stress from the Coronavirus epidemic itself, during this time of “self-isolation” and staying at home our routines have changed. Change and uncertainty are definite causes of stress that we have to deal with. Most of us are feeling the affects of a stress overload!
I am sure that most of you have already got your vitamins, immune-strengthening products, and disinfectant. But here are 3 other products that you will want to consider and here's why.
Do you find that you are:
Here is what happens to your body when you are under a stress overload:
So here is more information about the Shaklee products that can help.
Stress Tabs – take during the day
This is a non-drowsy formula made to help relieve tension and stress.
Stress Tabs are made of a blend of clinically tested L-theanine, ashwagandha, beta-sitosterol, and L-tyrosine that help your body to adapt to the stress.
Gentle Sleep Complex – take at night This unique combination features Valerian, passion flower, and chamomile to promote a restful sleep. Tablets may be crushed and made into a tea.
Herb Lax – take at night or anytime feeling like you are “fighting” something
This is a product that has been around for many years and is one of Shaklee members' “favorites.” Herb Lax is a blend of Senna and 8 other herbs that promote a thorough cleansing. Under stress our “system” is not always regular and thus can contain a lot of toxins and poisons. Here is an illustration to explain what happens:
Take a piece of food, put it outside during the month of August (90+ degrees). What happens? Pretty gross, right? Your body is 98.6 degrees even if you’re health, so if you do not eliminate your food waste in a timely manner, you can also build up toxins and chemicals that can give you headaches, acid indigestion, a bloated feeling, and other possible reactions.
By keeping your intestines clean, you are also able to better absorb your vitamins and even possibly remove germs, viruses and toxins that you come in contact with.
For many years I have trusted Herb Lax to help keep my intestines clean and have even taken it when I felt nauseous. It is comforting to know it is all natural ingredients and safe to use.
So, take care of some of the effects of the stress on your body. These 3 Shaklee products can help you to feel better and be more active soon.

Best of Health to You and Your Family
Our body is an awesome system that can get rid of toxins and cleanse itself. However, sometimes it can get overloaded and needs some "help" because of all the toxic overload we get from our food and from our environment.
This not only makes us feel unhealthy, it can keep us from reaching our weight loss goal.

What are a couple of “key take-aways” you got from taking this assessment?
Did you wake up feeling good today? If not, would you like to radically change the way you feel?
What is the Prove It Challenge? We are looking for others who would like to take our basic nutritional program for 30 days and prove that our products work so that you "feel healthier, more energized, more focused."
Why 30 days? Because that is the average length of time it takes for your body to repair and recoup, although some will feel results even sooner.
Why is Shaklee making this offer? Because while other companies make claims about what their products can do, Shaklee can prove it!
1. Scientific Research proves it!
In the Landmark Study. researchers analyzed the effects long-term supplement use (those who took supplements for 25+ years.)

2. Athletes prove it!
Shaklee nutritional supplements have helped fuel over 100 Gold Medal Athletes, Astronauts Mark and Scott Kelly on the Space Station, and many other famous expeditions.
3. Over 65 years of long term customers have proved it!
Shaklee has already helped thousands of every day people have longer and healthier lives. I am one of them.
At one time in my life I was overweight, unhealthy, always tired, and almost died. When I heard that Shaklee claimed that their products would make me healthy, I acted on It by getting on a complete program and began to see some remarkable changes in my health and energy. Now over 40 years later and into my senior years, I continue to use only Shaklee. . I no longer have any health issues, I take no medications,,, I am healthy and energetic. (My Story)

Are you considering starting an in-home business? Today many people would like to have their own business but do not have the money to invest or do not want the traditional small business “headaches.” Today there are many options to choose from, but before you decide, check out these top 5 reasons why so many people chose the Shaklee business opportunity, who have built a successful business and income with the Shaklee business opportunity.
#1. The Product:
It is important to get in a business opportunity with a solid product behind it. This creates credibility and long-term customers.
Today many people are on a fixed income. Many of those are unhappy in their current job and feel stuck in their situations. Others would like to work from home.
A Shaklee business is your own.
Although the tax allowances do change each year, the concept is that when you have an in-home business part of your mortgage/rent and utilities become a tax deduction.
#5. Reputation of the Company
While there are some similarities between home-based businesses and MLM companies, it is important to find a company that has a firm foundation and a positive future for growth.
Would you like to have your own business and partner with a company with these types of criteria? Let’s get together so I can share with you the first steps to get started.
A major positive impact to improving the environment can be done by doing something very simple: replace the cleaning products in your home with non-toxic products and from a company that implements best green practices.
What are some things we should do? There are 4 types of changes we need to make:
1. Use less fuel and utilize alternative energy sources. While you may not be able to afford a hybrid car, you can do other things to reduce your fuel consumption such as, drive less, use a bicycle or a motor scooter. Replace appliances with solar or energy efficient brands. Turn off the lights in your home and use cfl’s.
2. Reduce, Reuse, Recycle. These actions need to be done in order. The first thing is that we want to use less and consume less. This reduces the amount of products in our landfills. Landfills are one the biggest sources of green house gas that affects the environment and a source of toxins in our water and soil. The most important items that need to be reduced are plastic grocery bags, plastic water bottles, and product packaging.
3. Use Product from Natural and Sustainable Sources Most popular would be bamboo or corn instead of wood from trees or plastics. Our food, household products, and personal care products should also not contain artificial ingredients, colors and artificial fragrances. Products can receive a seal of certification that their ingredients are natural and there are websites that will tell you about the ingredients of the products. http://householdproducts.niim.nih.gov/ingredients.htm
4. Purchase from Green Companies. It is popular today to let others know you are a “green” company. However, there continues to be those who are misinformed about what being green means and thus may be “greenwashing.” See: www.terrachoice.com/sixsinsofgreenwashing It is up to you the consumer to know some of the criteria for choosing a green company. Here are two questions to ask:
Do they have a green product or service? This would be something that has a
direct impact on reducing greenhouse gases, part of the reduce, re-use, recycle process, or reduces the effect on our natural resources. Scientific studies also should indicate that they have done their homework and their product is effective.
Do they implement best green practices in their organization?
For example, while a real estate person may not have a green product or service, but as a company they implement best practices. Among other things, they would decide to not use disposable cups, plates, and other such items.
There are organizations that are recognizing other organizations for following best
practices. A couple examples would be the Climate Neutral Award, the Stevie Award, or FGBC (Florida Green Building Council). But most importantly, you can check out an organization’s website for more information about what they are doing to implement Best Green Practices. This is usually found under a link from the
home webpage to information about the company.
Going Green is a Win-Win situation. It helps to reduce Global warming, protect our natural resources, makes us more healthy, and is good for the economy. Knowing some of the best practices and making a commitment to implementing some changes can make a difference.
