Green Cleaner Wars! All Purpose: Sun & Earth vs. Green Works

Updated on January 2, 2013

On your mark... Get set... Go Green Clean!

I really prefer to make my own cleaners. Having said that my husband isn't fond of the smell of my all purpose cleaning recipes which contain vinegar. And let's be real. Sometimes you just don't have the time, inclination, or ingredients to make your own cleaners. So to that end I am submitting 2 of the best rated and most cost effective green all purpose household cleaners to a duel. With your help, let's find out which one wins.

Just in case you are looking for a green clean homemade cleaning recipe and other affordable cleaning tips, I'll add the link to another page here, too. No matter what my hubby says, I'll still use these when I can. :D

What's your take on Green Cleaning? - It's completely anonymous, so feel free to answer.

If you already are a great green cleaner, I applaud you.

The rest of us can do just a little more to make a difference.

It's easy to add just ONE green tip or green product to get started.

I did not add the negative "Never" on this poll. I figure in this day and age most people who think they are not practicing green cleaning probably are doing a little without realizing it. :D

        Where does the light green color come from with Greenworks? Also, isn't it made by Clorox? Now there's a company known for being green.
