One satisfied customer said, "I love this toilet cleaner, enough that I took the time to write a review! First of all, it smells great. Second, it cleans really well! I used to always use those popular cleaners (Lysol, bleach) and I felt like I was choking on the smell and ruining my lungs with chemicals. This stuff doesn’t not smell like harsh chemicals but it definitely works just as well! 100% love this!"

I had sticky areas on my hardwood floors.. GONE!! I use it everywhere.. walks, cabinets, tub, mirrors, etc. It doesn't smell super vinegary, it makes everything smell FRESH. I highly recommend this product. Oh and it's gentle, you don't feel like you're going to die from inhaling chemicals while you clean."
Dish disposals can get smelly. Throw in one of these non-toxic, naturally-derived ingredient pods from Grab Green and give your disposal a whirl to clear odors and release the tangerine and lemongrass fresh scent.

Just look at everything the reviewer, Puzzlemaker, had tried, "I use this lightly abrasive cleaner for everything. There is no bleach in it so I don't end up with damaged shirts. I have used this successfully for: counter stains, pot scrubbing, scrubbing vinyl notebooks, sinks, toilets, stained utensils, rust spots, appliances, toaster oven clean ups, coffee urns, and so much more. It truly is a 'Good Friend'."
This hardworking countertop spray is made from a vegetable protein extract. The cleaner removes stubborn odors on surfaces.
