Spotlight on Shaklee-Not your Gramma’s Shaklee anymore

I remember Shaklee as a child. My Mom sold it for a brief time for extra income for our family. The funny thing is the ONLY product I remember is Basic H. The green liquid she poured in the little squirty bottle was used everywhere. And worked like a charm too.

Years later, not much has changed. Basic H is still wildly popular and still works like a charm. Mom Squader Mabel Semler tells me there’s hundreds of uses for Basic H. Hundreds. Did you know she uses it to wash her lettuce? I know it sounds crazy, but I’ve seen a demonstration and it’s pretty dang disgusting the amount of dirt in a store bought head of lettuce. Once clean, the lettuce has no hint of soap and is amazingly sweeter.
Go figure.
I use it mainly for laundry and carpet cleaning. Once I accidentally killed my husband’s favorite shirt by washing it with a pink sock. And then I dryered it. Can you say “set stains for LIFE?”
It was an ugly scene.
On a wing and a prayer, I squirted Basic H on the color-runs and threw it back into the laundry. What did I have to lose, right?
When I pulled the shirt out, color run-os, el gone-o. I crap you not.

This phenomenal Shaklee product can be used as a cleaner, as a stain remover, as a bug repellent, to get bubble gum out of your child’s hair and so much more! You really get your money’s worth with this product. NO WONDER OPRAH LOVES IT! (seriously. This is listed on her website as one of her favorite products). But instead of me gushing on forever, just give Mabel a ring. She is a wonderful lady who really knows her craft. Shaklee as been her biz for almost 30 years. The lady knows Shaklee and how to “go green” with your cleaning products. She’s got a great coupon in our Mom Squad Coupon Pack and you can reach her at Or at 218-546-6523 & 218-546-5209.
