12 Days of Christmas Giveaways  

Review by Lydia, Frugal Debt Free Life, Contributing Writer 

On the 11th day of Christmas, day2day joys gave to me…

A wonderful cleaning, natural cleaning option, that will keep your home in tip-top shape! 

Cleaning your home should result in a clean atmosphere, not potential toxins. That’s why Branch Basics exists. This soap is specially formulated to serve a variety of purposes, with just one bottle of soap making many bottles of cleaning products. 

Branch Basics Giveaway

Branch Basics is a non-toxic, plant based soap free from synthetics. It’s also biodegradable, so it’s not just good for people, it’s good for the earth. 
Just one bottle of concentrated soap can be mixed with water to create a product with near-endless uses.  

Features of Branch Basics 

  • Non-toxic soap
  • plant based, nonsynthetic ingredients 
  • No overpowering scent for sensitive people 
  • easy to mix
  • woman owned company 

Now for my review:

I am not going to lie, when a bottle of soap and several empty spray bottles showed up on my door step I was leery. Could one bottle of concentrated soap clean my messy house? 

Guys, I am not a housekeeper. I try, but cleaning just isn’t my jam. However, when I realize that one product could clean my entire home I was jazzed. 


I received the Small Starter Kit, which came with 12 ounce bottle of Branch Basic’s signature concentrated soap and three empty bottles to make All-Purpose cleaner, Bathroom cleaner, Streak-Free cleaner, and our new custom 10 oz. foamer bottle perfect for hand and face washing. 


It is really easy to mix the products. Each bottle comes with directions with a line to fill with water and then a second line to tell you how much soap to add. It’s usually just a few drops. As skeptical as I was, I was amazed at how well the soap worked at cleaning my home. From the tile in my bathroom to the granite on my counter tops, the Branch Basics soap got my house shiny clean. 

I was even able to use it to clean my mirrors and scrub my cast iron skillet. You can even spot treat oil stains on clothing. 


What I Liked:
  1. I liked how effective the product is 
  2. That the product is safe to use around my kids
  3. There is not overpowering scent 
  4. The versatility of the cleaning products 

What I didn’t Like:

  1. Nothing!

    I’m a big fan of mrs. Meyer products but any natural cleaner is a winner in my books. I use a lot of vinegar and citrus in my house.

    I think if I won I’d like the all purpose cleaner. One stop shop.

  2. I think I would like the Bathroom cleaner. I try to buy simple cleaners or make my own to keep my family safe.

  3. Valerie W says:

    I would love a great bathroom cleaner. Right now we use a lot of hydrogen peroxide and essential oils with castile soap.

  4. I have never tried essential oils, but I’ve heard wonderful things about them and how they’ve helped families stay healthy.

  5. Stephanie says:

    I have been using water and vinegar or my “green” dishsoap. I would be most excited to try this for my dishwasher, my washing machine and the dishes I was by hand.

  6. No! But i heard that they help with various illnesses!

  7. Yes. I have tried essential oils
