I love our pickled green beans – they are super easy to can and make the best appetizer when rolled in meat that has been smeared with garlicky cream cheese. I make a couple of batches each year. But what’s not so nice is the mess the pickling juice can make on my counters, pots and tools.
That’s where Bon Ami’s cleaning line and cute canning kit comes in.
I’ve used Bon Ami powdered cleanser for years – I love that it was “green” back when that was just a color (since 1886 in fact!), that it’s a great cleaner and yet doesn’t scratch sinks, tubs or counters.
As if that’s not enough, the iconic jar of powder with the little chick and the slogan “Hasn’t scratched yet” costs under a dollar. Which makes it right at home next to the vinegar and baking soda in my cleaning cabinet.
So you can imagine how excited I am to have Bon Ami as a sponsor this month on AOC and to be able to try out their “Chicks Who Can” clean-up kit. I think Bon Ami is a great fit for us here at AOC – frugal, environmentally friendly, and endorsing a DIY lifestyle that includes preserving the season’s bounty!
Included in the canning kit is Tangerine and Thyme dish soap which I used to wash my jars before canning and my pots and utensils when I was done. I also used their liquid cleanser in the same scent to clean the sticky pickling juice from my counters.
And I have to say – I really loved the scent! It smelled so fresh and clean, with no worries about how they got the fragrance, since I know that all their products are toxin-free.
In addition to the giveaway below, Bon Ami has generously provided these cute canning labels for AOC’s readers to download and use to make your jars look sweet for gift-giving (or for making your own jars look pretty!):
I’m happy to have these cleaning products for the rest of canning season, AND I’m even more happy to be able to give away Bon Ami “Chicks Who Can” clean-up kits to TWO readers!
Oh, and you don’t have to can to be able to use this – it’s simply great cleaning supplies anyone can use – plus a really cute apron!
