Like young love, a thorough house-cleaning is often inspired by a fresh spring day and concluded by collapsing sweatily on the couch. Swoon over sparkling surfaces with today's Groupon: for $10, you get $20 worth of earth-friendly cleaning products from online retailer GrabGreen.
Founded by a mother who wanted to avoid dousing her daughters' duds in questionable chemicals, GrabGreen concocts environmentally responsible cleansers and delivers them to soon-to-be-scrubbed homes. For a full array of laundry aids, a laundry starter kit ($24+) supplies detergents for regular and delicate garments, a bleach alternative, and static-slaying wet dryer sheets. Groggy garbage disposals are revived and relieved of tuna-salad breath by garbage-disposal freshener pods ($4.50/dozen), and Vetiver room and fabric freshener ($9) gives lift to linens. Sprayable and fragrance-free all-purpose cleaners ($5) can slice through accumulated grease or a summer's worth of popsicle drippings on countertops, appliances, and tile.
GrabGreen's biodegradable ingredients cater to those with chemical sensitivities and are never derived from or tested on animals—even the noxious burrowing skunk. GrabGreen's easy-to-browse website can sort its potions according to the fragrance that suits your nose's fancy or the household task you need to complete. This Groupon can be used on sale items for further savings.
