Arm & Hammer Essentials - Green Cleaning

When I launched Green Behavior onto Twitter (@greenbehavior) I found an interesting Twitter follower, @saveessentials. It’s a PR guy letting us know that Arm and Hammer is looking to cut Essentials cause there’s no one buying it.

Why buy it?

  • It’s a great product that really works
  • Less packaging = less weight = less transport cost = smaller carbon footprint
  • Why waste bottles - reduce and reuse.

Cleaning with Essentials

I grabbed the multi-surface cleaner and went to town cleaning and testing for y’all. I picked a good and dirty place to clean: my best friend and boyfriend’s condo kitchen.

The kitchen looked and smelled clean once I was done - the multi-surface cleaner cut through microwave grease and baked on stove top goodness. The faucet sparkled and the glass was streak free and see through (again.)

  1. I have a theory on why this product might not be doing so well…It has to do with companies that only stick their nose into the environmental market instead of jumping in full force because it’s good for our world. Proof of a commitment, might bring a following…It seems like A&H wouldn’t have that far to go to be green all the way through. my 2 cents, R

  2. With regard to the post by Regina; Arm & Hammer actually has a bona fide eco-friendly heritage [as opposed to the corporations sticking their noses in to see if they can make a quick buck]. Thirty nine years ago A&H introduced the first phosphate-free laundry detergent and was the SOLE sponsor of the first Earth Day. One hundred years ago A&H began using recycled paper products in their packaging…and they have always promoted Baking Soda as an eco-friendly way to clean everything from teeth to tires. Go to their website to check it out.

  3. I am a house keeper that started using the Arm and Hammer Essential cleaners and I was very impressed with the 3 products that was offered and I am really dissappointed if this is the end of this product. My hands would stay torn up due to the harsh cleaners that I was using and then I changed to the Essentials line of house cleaners and my hands had actually started to look better and now I am going to have to change again this really does get my goat especially with the government yelling about going green If anyone knows where they might be selling this product so I can continue to purchase it instead I would appreciate it

  4. I CAN’T BELIEVE THAT YOUR COMPANY IS DISCONTINUING THIS GREAT PRODUCT THIS IS THE BEST CLEANER I HAVE EVERY USED. WHEN THE SUN SHINES ON MY MICROWAVE, DISHWASHER, STOVE OR REF. THEY REALLY SHINE, EVEN MY OLD COUNTER TOPS LOOK GOOD. PLEASE RETHINK THIS PRODUCT, IF I KNEW WHERE I COULD BUY IT, I WOULD GET 10 MORE BOTTLES.

  5. On my last refill bottle of essentials multi-surface (geen bottles) can’t find in store. look on line and your telling me they stopped making it? Did they als stop making laundry detergent in powder form? Can’t find that any more either. i wnat to pay for the powder and not all the water added into liquid laundry soap. why are consumers so lazy.
