"We are a small green cleaning company that deals mainly with residential clients. We have been using the optionsforlife Peroxide Cleaner Concentrate for a while now. We think it is great, the best on the market. It is a safe, low cost, yet effective product to use. We have tried other "non-toxic" cleaners before and have had complaints due to the strong, chemical odor. We have had no problems with optionsforlife. Plus we use it to clean almost everything, toilets, showers, floors, kitchens and even carpet! We recommend it highly. -- Aaron Carlisle, owner, Custom Cleaned
"Your Peroxide Cleaner is a truly extraordinary product. As a physician, the efficacy of the cleanser I use in my office is of paramount importance. After reviewing a number of “green” products available, I chose optionsforlife as the only cleanser for my practice. It’s strong enough to clean my exam tables, but does not irritate my patients’ skin. My office manager tells me we’ve saved hundreds of dollars already!" -- Robert Buka, MD
“We have searched, tested and spent thousands of dollars on many green products over the years, but once we tried the Options for Life products, we were sold. By far, Options for Life products are the most effective green products that we have used in over 10 years of business. They are not only effective, but they are the most cost effective green products that SHC has purchased. Plus, the customer service is A+. Thank you Options for your amazing products!" -- Deborah A. Yates, owner Spare Hands Cleaning, Maryland
"I’ve been trying a lot of ‘green’ products lately, but my problem was that they did not really work that well. One day at my friend’s apartment I smelled a nice clean lavender scent. I assumed that it was a lavender oil, but to my surprise she pulled out a bottle of OptionsForLife multi-surface lavender cleaner. Right then and there I went on line to purchase some products and have been hooked since. Your products satisfy my cleaning needs and at the same time promote innovative idea of using concentrate and saving hundreds of plastic bottles from environment! Nothing else to add… I’d just like to recommend your products to any undecided visitor." -- Kristen
"To find the best [glass cleaning] products, I tried about 20 – everything from supermarket standards to homemade elixirs.
Familiar, ammonia-based brands like Windex did an OK job, but the smell was overwhelming. I’m not a huge fan of ammonia. To some people it says “clean”; to me, it says “headache.” I also found these products evaporate too rapidly, which creates streaks if you don’t wipe fast enough.
Ammonia-free products often contain some type of plant-derived surfactant (i.e., detergent), so they do a good job of cutting through grease, though the soap factor can also mean they require a little more muscle to remove. Options for Life and Mrs. Meyer’s both performed well and left few streaks. -- Stephen Treffinger, for the New York Times
"I became more conscious of the cleaning products I use since I became pregnant and the birth of my son 10 mos. ago. Most of the green, non-toxic products I used simply did not work. However, I have been using optionsforlife products for the past few months and have been pleased with the results. The peroxide cleaner has been great for Will’s high chair. Thanks." -- William's Mom
"I run one of the busiest bars in the city, and after we close, the sidewalk just outside our bar is covered with food, cigarette butts, beer and other stuff. It's dirty, greasy and smelly. Before switching to optionsforlife, I and my co-workers would get burns on our legs from the toxic stuff we were using to clean the sidewalk. Your peroxide cleaner does the job just as well without the smell and the burns. It's the best. We now also use the Peroxide Cleaner diluted to do our table and bar tops." -- Jose, Jeremy’s Ale House
"As a professional involved with environmental issues such as water use and water conservation, I often come across products that claim to be environmentally friendly, non-toxic, etc. My experiences with them in the past have for the most part, been disappointing largely due to poor product performance and high prices.
But after three months of using various optionsforlife products in my home and office, I am truly surprised. We now use the furniture and floor products on our desks and floors and the bath cleaning and hand soaps in our office bathrooms.
A bottle of the hand soap is on every sink. In the laundry, we find the laundry products to perform better then other products we've been using and we love the clean scent.
We now use optionsforlife laundry products exclusively, not only for our washing needs but for my elderly parents clothes as well. We've even found that our environmentally conscious son has been helping himself to our optionsforlife supplies for his apartment.
Great products...keep them coming." -- Tony P, Massachusetts
"I love the fresh fragrances of optionsforlife cleaning products as compared to the toxic brands, and the performance is definitely a match for any other product I’ve tried.
The peroxide cleaner never leaves my side in the kitchen. I use it on the counter tops, sink, stove, in the fridge, and it’s completely proven itself on the white linoleum floor which I couldn’t seem to get clean with anything else. This is a real accomplishment considering we share this floor with a city dog and his food and water and all the joy and mess that brings! Toxicity for pets/children is something that’s really concerned me about other commercial products and it’s really satisfying to support conscious efforts to protect them.
I’ve recently tried the laundry soap and been really pleased with the fresh, clean feeling of the clothes.
The spray-cleaner pack of 4 is a great deal! These products would make fun and practical holiday gifts and would surely get friends and family hooked." -- resident, South Street Seaport
"[optionsforlife] Kitchen and Bathroom Peroxide Cleaner comes in a reusable spray bottle which was the first plus for me! The product also worked very well, has a light orange scent and doesn't streak! The product I had been using from the store (won't mention brand) was an all purpose cleaner, but it was awful sudzy! You had to repeatedly wipe the surface down to remove all the bubbles... this new product was a welcome change. I even used it on the microwave and it cleaned up nicely.
Additionally, I had my mother-in-law use the cleaner. Now mind you, in the in-laws house, green is not a concern. "The more bleach, fragrance and chemicals, the better it cleans" is the motto over there. So, I was pretty impressed when she let me know that she really liked it! She used it to treat a few stains she had on the carpet and said it lifted them, too. There may be hope in greening her yet! -- Jennifer Smith, author of Eco-office Gals
