Lotus Cleaning System...really cleans!! {giveaway}

I'm not the greatest housekeeper in the world, I fully admit that. It's not that I don't like a clean house, it's just that I have soooo many other things demanding my time that something's gotta give. And unfortunately it's housework.

That doesn't mean I live in a pigsty. "Clutter" and "filth" are different things. I can stand clutter, because it's just stuff I haven't had time to sort and put away yet. But filth? Nope. Can't abide filth.

So when the Lotus Cleaning System arrived on my doorstep, it was not a good time to jump right into housework. I had too many other things to do. By the time I got around to actually using the Lotus Cleaner, well, let's say my apartment was...eek!...bordering on filth.

Which just presented a challenge to the Lotus Cleaner.

And it stood up to the test brilliantly!

I started with the kitchen, because it needed the most attention. Setting up the Lotus cleaner is a breeze. There's a large booklet inside the box that walks you through every step, with pictures and easy to read clear instructions. I was very pleased with the amount of information included in the booklet. So many times, manufacturers just don't give you enough info, or it isn't presented in the clearest fashion. But the Lotus people are doing everything right, even down to the instruction manual!

Anyway I just did what the instructions told me to do, like installing the filter and running a cycle completely before using the cleaner. I guess this was to break in the filter. They also suggested using that water I just ran and water my plants with it. So I did. Nervously. Wasn't sure what kind of effect it would have, ya know?

Three days later, my plants look like they have a new lease on life!! Seriously!! New shoots, glossy leaves...must have really liked something about that water!

Okay, back to my kitchen... After running the first cycle and watering my plants, I prepared another bottle and tackled my refrigerator. It has one of those textured surfaces, the kind that may look clean but harbors dirt and germs and who knows what all in those little cracks. I used the sprayer and wiped with one of the enclosed cloths. Then I ran my hand over it. Okay. Fine. Feels clean. Then I ran my hand over an area I hadn't cleaned yet.

Oh my.

I could definitely feel the difference! Even though the surface of the refrigerator wasn't "filthy", there was still a layer of grime and grease that came off when I used the Lotus on it. I was amazed at how squeaky clean my refrigerator could be!

Next I moved on to the microwave. Now, I don't know about you, but I'm one of those that, even though I may neglect other housework, I want my microwave spic and span. I shudder to think of the germs and whatnot that a dirty microwave holds. And every time you use a dirty microwave, you run the risk of adding that "stuff" to your food that you're about to eat! So I'm kind of a fanatic about using a plate cover to prevent spatters, immediately rinsing the plate cover, and immediately wiping down the microwave after use. I wipe it down again everytime I do dishes. Just habit, I guess, but one I have no intention of breaking.

So I used the Lotus sprayer on what I thought was my clean microwave.

Wow!! I was astonished at the gunk and junk that came out of the tiny corners and nooks and crannies inside the microwave! Even with my diligence at keeping it clean, the Lotus got it even cleaner! I couldn't believe the stuff I was wiping out with the cloth. I feel better already about cooking and heating food in there, now that I have the Lotus!

Did you know that the Lotus system can also sanitize your fruits and vegetables? That's important, not only for the food you get at the supermarket but also the roadside stands. You don't know what kind of chemicals and pesticides and all that are coating the surfaces of your produce. But you can destroy all that bad stuff simply by putting the produce in the wash unit that comes along with the sprayer bottle in the Lotus sytem and letting it run through a cycle.

I'm sitting here writing this review and munching on an apple that I cleaned in the Lotus, and I can't tell you how good it feels to know that no nasty stuff is going into my body! The Lotus strips away germs, chemicals, and all that's left is the apple in its purest form. Doesn't your family deserve clean food? And don't you deserve the peace of mind from knowing that it is clean? Hey, did I mention you can even clean meat with the Lotus? And it's great for sanitizing pacifiers, toothbrushes, kitchen gadgets that are difficult to wash, and what about tweezers? Hairbrushes? Combs? Nail clippers? The possibilities are endless.

One thing I really like about the Lotus System is that it doesn't use steam to clean. You're not going to be steaming your apples or toothbrushes, or handling boiling hot water in the sprayer. No, the Lotus works with cold water. It's the patented process that makes it effective at cleaning and sanitizing.

I am simply amazed at the difference this little gadget is making in my home, not to mention how much better I feel about cleaning now. It's as if all the cleaning I've done up to this point has been superficial at best, even with all those nasty chemicals. The Lotus does it much better, more efficiently, more affordably, and definitely more environmentally-friendly. What more can you ask from a cleaning system?

Now the next thing on my list is to see how the Lotus sprayer performs in the bathroom. Judging by the refrigerator, I can't wait to see how squeaky clean it will make the shower door!

I learned that the system is recommended for use with visually clear water (not colored cloudy or turbid water). It is designed to disinfect and filter water that may be microbiologically contaminated with the microorganisms listed on the enclosed performance data sheet, but which meet all other public health standards.
