iQ ~ The Smarter Cleaner {giveaway}




At Planet People we believe that you shouldn’t have to choose between a clean home and a clean planet. That’s why all Planet People products are high performance cleaning solutions made from 100% non-toxic and ecologically sustainable ingredients that pose no harm to users or the environment.
The time has come - it is time to find a non toxic cleaner which is more than just good for the environment, but also gets the job done.


iQ is The Smarter Cleaner





Three empty iQ bottles and three mix cartridges arrived for my family to evaluate.  Right away my interest in the product was piqued, anything which is a little different from the norm is always up my alley.

This is a very easy system to prepare and use.

  • Fill with tap water to the fill line indicated on your bottle
  • Insert the refill cartridge into the bottle neck
  • Insert sprayer tube through your refill cartridge opening and tighten until concentrate is released (this is the cool part)
  • Shake bottle gently to mix up the solution
  • Turn your sprayer nozzle to the desired setting
I had all three bottle set up and ready to use within a minute, and the kids loved watching the solution disperse throughout the water.  It had a mystical feel to the whole process.  I mentioned that three bottles and three mix cartridges arrived, giving me three separate targeted cleaning solutions.


All Purpose Cleaner
Is a high performance cleaner which cuts through grease and grime and leaves a streak-free finish with no residue.
Green Tea scent

Glass Cleaner
Is for glass, mirrors and windows, again streak-free and no residue.
Bamboo Berry scent

Bathroom Cleaner
Is specially designed with a sugar based acid to tackle bathroom messes like soap scum, grime and hard water stains.
Nectarine Plum scent


I found iQ ~ The Smarter Cleaner to be one of those awesome products which can really make a difference, not just in our lives, but that of our planet.  The solutions were very easy to mix and I really liked that there was no mess associated with it.  I've used other concentrates which involve mixing and undoubtedly spillage occurs - with iQ there is no chance of spilling while mixing. 

I like that each cleaner is a different colour, making identification of product simple.  (The mixing bottles are clearly marked as well.)  The solutions smell great, and I love the freshness which is left behind after using the product.

These products really do work well!  The market has become flooded with environmentally friendly products, but not all can get the job done.  I've been on a quest to find a 'green' cleaner which also works, and I can happily report that iQ ~ The Smarter Cleaner is the best I've found.

Everything associated with iQ is recyclable - the solution bottle and the REFill (Reduced Environmental Footprint) cartridge

And, iQ ~ The Smarter Cleaner from Planet People is Canadian!

Look for this non toxic cleaner at Wal Mart and Loblaws or purchase online.

Smarter for our homes, smarter for our planet and smart because it will save us money!



~ Giveaway @ Country Mouse, City Mouse! ~
One lucky reader will win a start up system (like I reviewed) AND a years supply of REFill cartridges
($50 value)
