In case you weren’t aware, Bon Ami the makers of super effective green cleaners are a Missouri company, based in Kansas City. They were making natural cleansers before it was hip. In fact they’ve been in business since the 1880s. To celebrate their history and recent revival in the marketplace, they recently rereleased an classic product: the cleansing cake.
Based on the original 1886 products, the Cleaning Cake is a household workhorse. You can clean old glass windows, tile, stainless steel, mirrors, and pots and pans (to a high shine!) But it only has two ingredients: tallow soap and feldspar. Which are completely biodegradable. I love that I dont’ have to worry about it around my kids. I just didn’t mention the cake moniker. Because if I had, they would so try to eat it. To use it you just rub a damp cloth over the surface of the cake, then use the paste created to clean. After cleaning, rinse thoroughly or wipe dry with a second cloth.
Unfortunately the cake isn’t sold in any local stores (you can only get it on the new shopping site Alice.) But you can get other Bon Ami products including their classic powdered cleanser (cheaper and more effective than Comet) at local grocery stores. or you can win a set, including the cake, on my personal blog The Guavalicious Life.
Disclosure: Bon Ami sent me the cleaning cake. They didn’t ask me to write about it and thoughts in this post are my own.
