Closed Giveaway: Simple Green Outdoor Cleaning Kit

About: Simple Green
Our Mission: “As a socially responsible company, Sunshine Makers, Inc. is committed to being the worldwide market leader, providing high quality, environmentally safer cleaning products.”

The Simple Green® story began over thirty years ago, long before “environmentally friendly” products were mandated by law. Bruce FaBrizio and his father (Baby Bruce with his father pictured to the left in 1952) developed a safer alternative to the toxic cleaners then being used to remove tannic acid, a by-product of coffee roasting, from roasting machinery. It took three years to perfect the biodegradable, not-toxic, non-flammable, non-abrasive formula. After its initial success, Bruce began selling Simple Green to automotive and industrial customers in 55-gallon drums; which he delivered in his van, for use as a cleaner on equipment and floors.

In 1979, just as initial retail marketing efforts were beginning to pay off, Bruce’s father died. Bruce managed to keep the business alive and in 1981 gave his company the name it continues to carry — Sunshine Makers, Inc. Simple Green was then introduced nationally into several new markets including Hardware/Do It Yourself, consumer grocery & drug, GSA (government) and Club-Store classes of trade. In the early 1990s, Bruce created the Environmental Technology Division within his company in order to define the cutting edge of today’s cleaning solutions and solidify his company’s high standards for environmental responsibility. Bruce and Viviana FaBrizio. Today, over 3 million dollars have been spent to prove the safety and efficacy claims of Simple Green.

Sunshine Makers, Inc. is still owned and operated by Bruce P. FaBrizio. Bruce lives in Corona Del Mar, California with his wife Viviana and their happy family of five pampered pooches.

Sunshine Makers, Inc. has its headquarters in Huntington Beach, California, with satellite offices all over the world. Simple Green is manufactured in Garden Grove, California – Lawrenceville, Georgia – Rydalmere, Australia and Bernburg, Germany. Additional distribution centers are located in Maastricht, Netherlands and Choisy le Roi, France. Satellite sales offices are strategically located across the United States. The Simple Green family of products has expanded to encompass consumer and industrial product lines. Original Simple Green and the entire family of Simple Green products are now a part of everyday life in millions of homes, commercial and industrial sites, not only in the United States but all over the world.

In 1989, Bruce FaBrizio and Simple Green founded the EGBAR® Foundation. EGBAR is an acronym for Everything’s Gonna Be All Right. The foundation is funded by a percentage of Simple Green sales, which goes toward a national education curriculum that teaches children about the environment and how to care for it. Funds also support community clean-up projects, and most recently, partnerships with The Catalina Island Conservancy and The SEA Lab. These partners also focus on improving children’s understandings of environmental issues and supports actions toward improving the environment around us. With the support of Simple Green, as well as the generous donations from people all over the world, the EGBAR Foundation is making a difference by teaching everyone to “Think Globally, Act Locally.”


All-Purpose Cleaner


Over 30 years ago, concentrated Simple Green® All-Purpose Cleaner was formulated for the industrial marketplace… but it kept finding its way back home! Customer satisfaction, loyalty and demand have since put the Simple Green “family” of popular convenient sizes in retail stores nationwide!

The makers of Simple Green have spent over $3 million to verify the safety claims and unique formulation. Concentrated Simple Green had it right from the start. An environmentally-sensitive non-toxic cleaner/degreaser that really works and can be economically custom-diluted for many, many different uses. From floors and walls to pots and pans, from windows to sinks and drains, from stained carpets to greasy tools, it only takes a little Simple Green to get big jobs done around the house.

Simple Green is one of the most versatile all-purpose cleaners you can buy! It’s non-toxic and biodegradable, without harmful bleach. Because it is a concentrate, you can custom dilute Simple Green to clean just about anything dirty. It replaces most cleaners, detergents, degreasers and laundry pre-soaks you're using now.

Where to Use
Simple Green All-Purpose Cleaner can be used on any washable surface, from floors and walls to laundry and vehicles (see Applications/Dilution Ratio Chart). It removes the toughest stains including dirt, grease, oil, pet stains, coffee & juice stains, lipstick, blood, adhesives & much more!



Simple Green Heavy Duty
BBQ & Grill Cleaner

Simple Green® Heavy Duty BBQ & Grill Cleaner is the safer solution to other harsh degreasers used to clean baked-on food and grease. Its non-toxic and biodegradable cleaning power will leave the surface residue-free and give you the peace of mind for the next cookout.

Specially formulated in a fast-acting, clinging foam, Simple Green Heavy Duty BBQ & Grill Cleaner goes on effortlessly, penetrates quickly and removes baked-on grease, food and carbon deposits from almost any vertical surface and narrow space. In step with our environmental responsibility, the foam contains no CFC’s and the 100% recyclable cans are made with partially recycled steel.

Where to Use
With its unique clinging ability, Simple Green Heavy Duty BBQ & Grill Cleaner is much more versatile than other single-purpose cleaners. Aside from bbqs & grills, it works great on other greasy stubborn areas like range hoods, vents, filters and cooking utensils, just to name a few.

I love that these products are non-toxic biodegradable, and economical!  They are easy to use and they get the job done. I hate to clean the grill. I HATE it. The Heavy duty grill cleaner makes it easier than it usually is to get all of the grease off the grill.

I Love the all purpose cleaner and I got the bathtub clean in no time. I am planning on using the stone cleaner and polish soon, but i have faith it will do the trick since the all purpose cleaner and grill cleaner did the trick. I also have some old stainless steal  antique platter sets that i cannot wait to clean up with my stainless steel cleaner!!!
