As I have mentioned before, Greenyourlife is offering local businesses the opportunity for a Free, No Obligation trial of 2 of the Earth Renewable Solutions Cleaning Products.

We are offering trials of the Multi-purpose Cleaner and the Germex Disinfectant.

So far we have had hairdressers, pubs, cleaning businesses, B&B’s and small food outlets trial the products and all like what they have seen.

But many wonder why we are doing this.

Well, Earth Renewable Solutions (ERS) is a relative newcomer to the market.  It has quite a novel product and it is a small British business.  It is just the kind of business Wikaniko likes to work with.  All of the Wikaniko Independent Distributors can (if they want) offer free trials of the ERS cleaning products so more and more businesses and organisations get to try them.  This is a great marketing tool.

How do I benefit – well, in an ideal world every business that tries the product would buy it.  In a realistic world, some will and some wont.  Some people worry that their clients wont think a place is sufficiently clean unless it has the smell of bleach or other recognised cleaner.  Others are relatively small businesses and a bottle of concentrate would probably last a year or more as a little goes so far.

But I believe that more and more people are recognising the fact that cleaning products can and do lead to health problems.  Some can lead to breathing issues and some people are highly sensitive to the ‘fragrances’ added to many cleaning products.  Where cleaning products are used regularly throughout the day or daily due to health and safety regulations, surely it makes sense to use products that are safer for your health and for the environment.


Where am I offering this free trial – well almost anywhere between Epsom and Farnham.  If you are further afield, do get in touch – we can probably work something out.


Post Trial – What Would It Cost?

So, if you are interested in the product after trying it, what is the cost?

Well, each bottle of concentrate is £34.99 and that comes with a 750ml spray bottle.  Each bottle of concentrate dilutes down to at least 90 bottles of 750ml spray bottles.

So each spray bottle is less than 40p (£0.40).  So Eco-friendly and Eco-nomical!

For people living in a 5 mile radius of Normandy, then I do a refill service on these 2 products.  Your initial full spray bottle is £3.00 and then each refill is £0.80.

Going Wholesale – Wikaniko in your Shop or Business

lavenderflowerssoapThe development of a Wholesale Buyer option is great news.  This makes the business attractive to a whole new set of people – perhaps most obvious being the owners of small shops or businesses who would like to stock or use eco-friendly products but don’t want large numbers of each product.

1. How does it work?

You sign up for Free as a Wholesale Buyer and get your own online Warehouse to do your orders from.  Your orders are stored online and VAT is clearly shown.

You then choose what you want to sell or use within your business from your own Eco Warehouse and you purchase these at wholesale price.  The recommended retail price is also shown for each product in your Warehouse should you be looking to sell them on.

Why BioD?

Lovely bubbles, clean dishes and fully biodegradable

Lovely bubbles, clean dishes and fully biodegradable

I am not (as I may have mentioned before) a huge fan of cleaning. There is almost always something more fun to be done. However, the washing up won’t do itself, the toilets don’t clean themselves and the floor does need some TLC to ensure when Chimp picks up things off it and shoves them in his mouth, that they are not totally covered in grime, muck and germs!

So, how to combine my antipathy towards cleaning with wanting a clean home without creating a chemical fug that can harm my children’s health and my own? I do use micro-fibre cloths for wiping and cleaning surfaces, but for the above list I have found BioD to meet all my requirements.

BioD Washing-up Liquid cleans really well – even the greasier stuff. A little goes a long way and bubbles are plentiful which pleases my 4 yr old when she ‘helps’ wash up (though she is getting better at actually wiping the dirty items and not just pouring water and bubbles from container to container!). Importantly, neither my skin nor my daughters is damaged by this washing-up liquid and when it disappears down the drain, I am confident that aquatic wildlife will not be harmed by its contents.

The Dishwasher powder does a great job on things in the dishwasher (or at least it did in our old home where the dishwasher worked properly. The dishwasher in our rented home has issues with the release mechanism on the powder dispenser and so getting crockery really clean is more of a challenge!).

For a Green Clean Loo, look no futher than BioD Toilet Cleaner.

For a Green Clean Loo, look no futher than BioD Toilet Cleaner.

BioD Toilet Cleaner comes in 2 sizes, the 750ml with a ‘duck-shaped’ top end so it is easier to squirt under the rim. It does have a strong scent of lemon grass which I love and if squirted and left for a while (ideally overnight), the scuzz and scum that can develop in the bowl is easily brushed away. As with most toilet cleaners, it is best to use at least once a week. Once again, the ingredients are all natural, biodegrade easily and do not harm aquatic life – Yeah! So what does it actually contain:-

  • acetic acid – is a descaling agent and is the main component of vinegar.
  • water
  • citric acid – the same as the natural acid in citric fruit such as lemons and limes, also a descaling agent and softens hard water.
  • Coconut oil derived detergent – cleaning and foaming
  • Corn sugar gum – helps to thicken the liquid, I think
  • Vegetable Glycerin – helps to thicken I think.
  • Lemongrass oil – fragrence

So nothing nasty at all.

Also on my BioD list is the multi-surface cleaner – great for floors, sinks, baths, paintwork and more. I don’t use this that often as am a fan of Microfibre cloths for cleaning most of these surfaces. However, when a little more is required then this is perfect.

I have also used the Laundry detergent and would again if I could wean myself off soapnuts!  The BioD Nappy Fresh is an antibacterial, germicidal sanitising powder that gives me confidence to wash Chimp’s nappies at lower temperatures and know that they are truly clean.

So all in all, ‘Thanks BioD’, you really help me keep a clean and chemical-free home!
