Basic H works great on horses
posted 4 years ago
I use the Shaklee Basic H spray for all my animals as needed... for horses, sheep, dogs, cats, cows, chickens, humans and any animal that needs bug protection or cleaning."
"It works wonderfully as others have said for bathing animals, but I use a slightly diluted mixture in a spray bottle with a "pointy top" so that I can direct the mixture where needed and control the amount. It also helps when they are taller than me...and to get it on their legs, tails etc."
"It takes VERY LITTLE to make a good suds. If I have an animal that is jumpy, I will dilute the mixture more, so I don't waste it if they are moving around."
"For FLY SPRAY, I use 4 oz. of Basic H to 12 oz. of water in a 16 oz. spray bottle. I rub my hand over the spot I'm going to spray (especially if a horse is jumpy) so it feels something touch it on THAT SPOT, then spray the spot...AND RUB THE SPOT AGAIN with my hand to transfer it into the hair. It seems to work much better, plus this helps to keep the animal calm."
"For best results, do it every day and just use a light spray. (It will dry and flake if you use too much.) We get lots of rain in northern Oregon! I will make it a little stronger if this mixture doesn't keep the bugs away." (NOTE: Because Basic H -full strength on the skin - can be used as a mosquito repellent for humans, this diluted mixture should not hurt the horse or other animals.)
It is amazing to watch the flies being repelled by the horses!
Pros: very effective

Natural & Safe Cleaner for cleaning around pets/Children.
posted 7 years ago
I just got into buying the Shaklee cleaning products. I am hard to impress. This Basic H product works to clean any & everything. It smells good but is all natural. It's safe for us, pets, children & the environment. You mix it in spray bottles labeled for Windows, All purpose, Degreaser. 1 bottle lasts forever. It does actually work great too. I was pretty dubious as to if it actually would clean my windows/puppy art. It cleans awesome. I don't sell the stuff so I am not trying to push it. I have switched all my cleaning products over to Shaklee now. All their products are all natural, safe for my pets. They are green products so safe for the envirnment. They come w/ very little packaging so less goes to landfill. It's a win/win all the way around. Now if I have to use the "other" toilet bowl cleaner or something the smell really bothers me because it's toxic. We have taken all the toxins & Carcinagens out of our house by using these healthy choice cleaning products. I couldn't believe how potent the old toilet bowl cleaner was when I did have to use it. The healthy cleans as well or better so why use the toxic ones around pets. Our lungs & my pets have to be healthier since I stopped using all the toxic cleaners from off the shelf @ super stores. You can find out the toxic Products in The Safe Shoppers Bible. It's worth checking out & this Basic H is kick *** to use around pets especially. I highly recommend it to pet owners.
Pros: Safe, all natural, better for the environment. I bottle goes a long, long ways. Can be used multiple ways to clean everything.
Cons: Has to be bought through a Shaklee Rep. Pricey to begin but after that, lasts forever.

No frills effectiveness
posted 6 years ago
My sister-in-law used to sell Shaklee, and I got a lot of Basic H from her. Just a couple of drops in the kitchen sink does your dishes -- suds are nice but unnecessary. I rub a bit into my palms before doing something automotive, because grease will then come off easily. Particularly good for daily damp wiping of pet feeding areas.
Pros: Good, mild, multipurpose cleaner
Cons: Not exactly cheap

Many, many uses
posted 6 years ago
I get this product by the gallon and then put it into smaller containers. I use it for washing dishes, cleaning, you name it. I like the fact that it is non toxic and you don't have to worry about the animals getting into it. I like that it comes in bulk. You do have to get it from a distributer and it is a bit pricey but well worth it.
Pros: non toxic
