Scottiejo McNulty, owner of Elite Cleaning, praises the merits of Shaklee cleaning products.

Green cleaning isn’t just for those with crawling babies or compromised immune systems anymore.  While science has extended our lifespan, made recycling commonplace, and defeated many medical issues of the past, we can all do our part to help the planet.   Cleaning supplies have long been harsh chemicals, laden with unpronounceable ingredients, but not anymore.  Elite Cleaning of Washington is proud to offer many natural, 100% effective options for their clients.

Owner Scottiejo McNulty has long been a user of, and distributor for, Shaklee products.  These are advertised as “nontoxic and natural cleaning choices that are safe, powerful, green, and smart.”  But she is also a font of knowledge when it comes to old wives’ tales and is happy to share.  Her Facebook page is a wealth of tips including: soaking greasy oven exhaust fans in vinegar then washing them in the dishwasher and sprinkling salt on spilled raw eggs to keep them from sliding away from the towel.

For clients, every attempt is made to meet their green cleaning needs.  When one recent client with extreme allergies called, the Elite Cleaning staff was able to do the entire job with common household ingredients like lemon, vinegar, and baking soda.  McNulty even put together some of these helpful guidelines for a recent article.  The article was so well received that a new client who signed up after reading it provided the names of five more interested friends.

This flexibility, willingness to listen, and customer-first attitude is what helped Elite Cleaning grow from 29 clients in 2011 to 281 in 2013 and earn a Best in South Sound nomination.  Says McNulty, “cleaning is an art and a science” and she welcomes calls with questions, requests, and can usually meet potential clients within a week of the initial chat.  Her highly trained staff clean homes, offices, apartments, and before or after events like parties and weddings.

She handles all incoming calls personally and can be reached any time at 360-529-2277.
