Green Giveaway!

That’s right, folks, I’m giving away my favorite cleaners on the planet.  They are incredible, easy on the lungs and the environment… and they WORK.  What better way to gear up for gardening than restocking your cleaning closet with grime-eating, super-cleaning, and a powerful shine-inducing for any surface. 

Perhaps you remember my last rant, “The Real Scoop on Cleaners: What You Need to Know and a Giveaway”, in which I detailed the extent of my research and quest for a pre-made green cleaning product that actually tackled tough stains.  And y’all, I live in Georgia — home to the most horrible red clay you’ve ever tracked onto carpet — and I know stubborn stains.  Stains and harmful chemicals are my sworn enemies.  I know you agree.  That’s why I’m giving one lucky commenter a  Simply Neutral Value Pack!


So, here’s what you have to do:

Visit GRIT.com, find an article or blog post that blows you away (a.k.a. makes your skirt fly up, makes you feel like dancing, has you humming disco tunes, or the cliche of your choice) and then put it in your comment here.  Your comment is your entry.  Winner to be announced on Friday.  You’ll be entered twice if you post this giveaway on your website (must place a second comment below with a link).

Good luck and stay green!

This giveaway is sponsored by the author of this blog who happens to love Simply Neutral and GRIT.com almost as much as she loves her blogging friends.  And that’s a lot.

  • nfmgirl - I like the article about protecting bats:
    http://www.grit.com/Animals/Protect-Bats.aspx

    There was also a good one about the five snakes you want to keep around. I have a great black snake that I think lives under my shed.

    Thanks!ReplyCancel

  • Heather - The article that caught my eye was the one “Knowing Poisonous Snakes”. This is very timely as I live in a house that backs to a wooded area w/ a pond and I have a pool in the back yard. On Sat morning while I was racking leaves in front of the house (yes I still have leaves from fall) I came across a snake coiled up. I went in the house got my camera and took a picture so I could get it ID. I left it alone and moved to another location where I came across another snake. I took it’s picture as well. The markings along w/ its head lead me and others to believe it was a poisonous snake. I took my camera to church to find out that it is a Brown Snake that loves bugs.

    Now last year I had problems w/ snakes getting into my pool (nothing to be done there). The end of the article gives ideas on how to cut down the possiblity of attracting and keeping snakes around as well as how we can make sure we are aware of our surroundings.

    Excellent and a must read!

    Thanks LacyReplyCancel

  • Laura - Man they gave away baby chicks in Atlanta this past weekend! Wish I would have known, I don’t have anywhere for them yet, but still!

    You know Lacy, I’ve lived in Georgia my entire life, why don’t we install red clay colored carpet? The pretty tan carpet in my house is more rust orange now.ReplyCancel

  • Christy - Ok…I’m showing my true geekness here but I like this study.

    Cool giveaway, Lacy! Great timing for spring cleaning. Maybe just the thing to get us motivated. Throwing open the windows and sending that winter stuffiness away with an inspired cleaning project.ReplyCancel

  • Christin - I liked “Starting Our Own Backyard Farm”. Last weekend we went to Home Depot for a pack of screws and came home with the makings of a garden:) We started small with just 2 tomato plants and 2 pepper plants, but my 3 yr old loves to check on the plants several times a day to see their progress:)

  • Dawn - I honed in on the recipes and really want to try some of the southern cakes. The lemon/poppyseed pound cake looks like some of the ones I have, but I really want to try the coconut cake and the cottage pudding.ReplyCancel

  • Christina - “I love my chickens! They are the best. Better than tv even! We get so many laughs watching their antics. And you are right… we have many less pests this season since we added chickens to our homestead. They are easy to care for and give us delicious eggs!”http://www.grit.com/Pests/Raising-Chickens-and-Poultry-for-Home-Pest-Control.aspxReplyCancel

  • Carolyn G - This is my favorite http://www.grit.com/Community/Heifer-International-Where-a-Little-Means-a-Lot.aspx

    I love this article beause it promotes Heifer Intl. I have been giving to Heifer for a few years now and instead of giving people gifts for their birthday or x-mas, I make a donation and buy a chicken or goat in their name. What I didn’t know about this great organization was that they had Global Villages here in the US to teach people here of the importance of their work.ReplyCancel

  • Robin - Hey Miss Lacy. :mgreen:

    My favorite is the Natural Pest: To Kill or Not to Kill

    http://www.grit.com/Pests/Natural-Pesticide.aspx

    To kill the pests naturally is the best! 🙂

    Hugs,, RobinReplyCancel

  • HeatherJ - Backyard Sugar Shack … definitely!
    We went to a Maple syrup demonstration a few years ago and were fascinated by it. We were amazed at how many gallons it took to make one little bottle of maple syrup. Also, who was the Most Patient Human Being to be the first one to try boiling and boiling and boiling just to see what happened?!!

    Hope all is well,
    HeatherJReplyCancel

  • Michele - I love green stuff. It matches my eyes.ReplyCancel

  • warren - Thanks for doing this Lacy…it’s so much fun! So I like bees of course. I enjoyed the grit article on bees in swarm season (now!)
