BONUS PRIZE PACK: PC Home and PC Green March 27, 2009

pc-green-dishwasher1

It’s getting easier to find green cleaning supplies but just a few years ago, that wasn’t the case. I grew up on a lake and now have a cottage near one so I’ve always done my best to rid my wash water of phosphates and keep other nasties out of the water system.

One place I could always find what I needed was Superstore and the aisle featuring the PC Green brand. Believe it or not, the brand has been around for 20 years and it’s still leading the way by bringing shoppers those greener alternatives that we are all seeking these days (we are, aren’t we?).

Along with the top drawer PC Green line, Superstore also has the PC Home line of very contemporary cleaning tools (they are hip!). Now you might argue that no one really cares what a scrub brush looks like as long as it gets the job done. Fair argument. But for me, stylish tools makes the work a little less painful, and PC Home is always big on style, easy on the pocketbook and hard working to boot! Plus my mom will be impressed that I actually own cleaning tools.

WIN! WIN! WIN!

This is our last prize pack of Spring Cleaning Week and it’s a doozie.

WIN DURING SPRING CLEANING WEEK: Affresh Washing Machine Cleaner

Filed under: Consumer Goods — shinypackages @ 2:35 pm
Tags: , , , , ,

You’re just back from the monster truck derby. Covered in mud. Stand by the washing machine, peel off those duds and drop them in. The machine will take care of the rest. Oh thank goodness we don’t have to head down to the river with a washboard in hand to take care of this mess.

Washing machines work all year round to keep your clothes looking their best. Now the washer needs to be cleaned. This may seem like an odd chore to add to your list but it’s especially important with the new high efficiency (HE) machines.

HE washers use less water and seal more tightly than older, less-efficient appliances. As a result, they are more prone to odour-causing residue, mold and mildew stains. Affresh Washer Cleaner to the rescue! Simply drop in a puck and run the machine through a regular cycle. Now your machine is ready for those snow white sheets.

WIN! WIN! WIN!

TODAY’S PRIZE PACK VALUE $125

1 Year supply of Affresh™ Washer Cleaner

This line of cleaners from Canadian Tire has everything going for it including being biodegradable and
non-toxic. It doesn’t have any artificial fragrances.

  1. It works like a charm. I started my spring cleaning on the weekend and couldn’t help but be impressed with the bathroom cleaner in particular. The scent is marvelously fresh with no chemical traces.
  2. The price is right. The dish washing liquid is $2.49 and the laundry detergent is $6.99. All the other products fall in this range.
  3. The packaging is beautiful. Okay, I know that doesn’t mean a whole bunch when it comes to getting your toilet sparkling clean but at least I can get inspired to clean when the bottle is pretty (and made from 100 per cent post-consumer waste).

WIN! WIN! WIN!

TODAY’S PRIZE PACK Includes a selection of Blue Planet cleaners for laundry, dishes, bathrooms and kitchens.

SPRING CLEANING WEEK: Never Lose Suction March 23, 2009

Tags: , , , ,

dc25-animalI finally bit the bullet and ordered a Dyson. It will arrive in a couple of weeks but I’m convinced it will be like no other vacuum I have ever owned. I’ve watched the You Tube videos. The fact that it will never lose suction is a big plus. I’ve been a sucker over the last 10 years, buying upright vacuums for $200 a piece that are now parked in the garage. I keep hoping someday they will miraculously start sucking again. This new DC25 Animal has the ball technology, you know, the neat feature where you can scoot around table legs without a collision and the subsequent swearing. The price of this model adds up to at least three of those suckless models in the garage. It’s time to buy big and be done with it. $699 at Sears, The Bay and Future Shop.

(Sorry, no prize pack on this baby. A new prize gets posted tomorrow.)
