MrGreen 100% Natural Eco-Friendly Products Review

by Elizabeth FrugalMomEh

in Product Review

When you bring a baby into your family for the first time you start to rethink a lot of things.  For us, it is our dependency on harsh chemical air fresheners to remove odours from our house.  We didn’t really think much about what we were breathing in when it was just the two of us but now that we have a baby I worry about many of our household products and how they may affect her.

When I heard about MrGreen Spray Away Odour Eliminator I was really interested in trying it out to see if it would compare to our usual brand.  

According to the product information “MrGreen Spray Away does not contain chemicals, bacteria or perfume and is manufactured using 100% natural ingredients.”  Just knowing that makes me a whole lot more comfortable using it around the house, even in her nursery around her diaper disposal system.

It is nice to know I can finally liberally spray down the area around her diaper pail without opening the window or worrying overly much about the spray contacting surfaces she might suck on hours later or even wondering how much chemical vapours she might be inhaling later on.  

After testing the Spray Away with our garbage, diaper pail, the cat’s couch, and our sometimes musty smelling basement I was more than satisfied that it could effectively treat the worst of our household odours.  What is really wonderful is that it doesn’t cover odours with a heavy scent but actually eliminates the odours leaving behind a light, barely noticeable lemongrass scent.  


Spray Away is available for sale in four unique scents:  Unscented, Lemongrass, Soft Cinnamon and Tropical Breeze.

I also had the opportunity to try out MrGreen‘s PDT (Pipe, Drain and Tap) treatment.  According to their website, “MrGreen PDT is an all natural pipe, drain and trap maintenance product that cleans piping and drainage systems and accelerates the breakdown of waste while eliminating odors.”  It should be noted that it is meant to maintain clog-free pipes and is not a clog remover. 

Thanks to the way a certain someone treats out drains (as in dumping oil down the drain, food, hair etc…) we often get clogs and treating them gets old fast.  (Not to mention expensive and stinky.)

I used MrGreen’s PDT with our Kitchen and Bathroom sinks since they are they worst by farThat was 3 weeks ago and so far so good!  Everything is flowing nice and quickly down the drain, generally by now our drains would have started slowing down a bit if not completely clogged so I am really happy with this treatment and plan to continue to treat our drains with MrGreen‘s PDT.  I love that it doesn’t have a harsh chemical scent and is easy to use to maintain our clog-free pipes!

Buy It: MrGreen is available to purchase at Canadian TireHome Hardware and Amazon.com

Disclosure:  I received the above mentioned products in order to facilitate this review.  This is a personal blog and all thoughts and opinions remain honest & my own.

Reply

thriftyskgirl February 14, 2013 at 8:44 pm

One of the first things I always look for in a product is if the line is Ecologo approved, which all of the MrGreen products are! With no perfume added I also know it is safe for my skin & pets. But the thing I am really impressed by is that research has shown there is “No hazards anticipated from ingestion”, so if my little one somehow got a hold of it the consequence would be a belly ache, not poisoning.

I don’t think all chemicals are ‘bad’. In fact I would argue that this product is made of 100% chemicals. Water is a chemical compound – H2O. So although I would love a free sample, I’m conflicted because I already can’t trust this company let alone deliver a useful and environmentally sound product. Just stop saying ‘chemical free’, it’s nonsensical and makes you sound silly.

Reply

Elizabeth FrugalMomEh February 20, 2013 at 11:16 am

Hi Crystal, since the chemical free part was a direct quotation from the company itself (see the quotation marks around that sentence?) I will have to disagree with you that it makes me sound silly, but hey, thanks for the Grade 5 science refresher?
