Get Rid of Boy Stink & Support Veterans Too with Hero Clean {A Review & Giveaway}

**Product received for review. All thoughts are 100% my own.

If you have a boy in your house you know one thing to be true--- boys are MESSY!

I grew up in a house with just sisters, and while we could create or fair share of mess and disorganization, it was nothing compared to the mess that boys can create! Little boys, big boys... they all make them. And we need cleaning products that can keep up with them! Today, I'm excited to share with you a company that has sought out to do just that:

Founded in 2013, the Hero™ Clean men’s household cleaning product line is available for subscription at hero-clean.com. A kit (one of each product) can be ordered to ship every month, every other month or every third month.  Hero™ Clean products are also available on Amazon.com and Target.com. Visit us on Facebook at https://www.facebook.com/HeroClean/, Twitter via @HeroClean or Instagram at https://www.instagram.com/heroclean/. A portion of purchase proceeds benefit Iraq and Afghanistan military Veterans of America (www.iava.org), the most diverse and rapidly growing group of post-911 veterans.
Following are the current line of products and new features of each:

Laundry Detergent: Available in 50 oz. and 100 oz. bottles, this laundry detergent now includes a patented Odor Defeater malodor technology specifically created to target laundry odor caused by male sweat and bacteria. The reformulated product now also includes a six enzyme package to: combat proteins, such as blood and grass; starch, such as pasta and rice; thickeners, such as locust bean gum and pectin; and oil and fat, such as salad dressing and food grease. These new enzymes also brighten white laundry while reducing contrast fading properties in colors. This detergent can be used for everyday laundry cleaning and even to wash sport uniforms. It is HE and non HE compatible.

All Purpose Spray Cleaner:  This 32 oz., low streak cleaner is effective for cutting dirt and grease, but flexible enough to be used on all hard surfaces, including glass.  There is no need for 17 different surface cleaners, this bottle does it all.

Dish/Hand Soap: This 22 oz. pump is phosphate and bleach free as well as dermatologist approved. It is ultra-concentrated and super aggressive on grease and dried on food. This multipurpose soap is great for use in a bucket of water for car washing, mopping, bathroom cleaning, etc.

Odor Eliminating Spray:  As opposed to deodorizing sprays that simply mask odor, this 17 oz. spray bottle contains odor killing probiotic microbes as well as HEro Clean’s Odor Defeater technology. For use on most fabrics, gear and cars, it is effective on anything that needs a little freshening up between cleaning. This product can also be used as a very effective laundry malodor pre-treatment.

All of the products continue to feature the original Hero™ Clean scent, a fresh, subtle aroma that's not fruity or flowery. Carefully designed by fragrance experts responsible for the world's finest colognes, Hero™ Clean's scent profile is based on Juniper, and a primary ingredient in Gin bringing a masculine sophistication to the cleaning products aisle.

Let's be honest, when we think of cleaning supplies, we primarily think WOMEN. Every cleaning ad you see on the TV--- geared towards women. If you take a look through a popular women's magazine, you're likely to see several ads for various cleaning products. But in a men's magazine? Not likely. Or just got for a walk through the cleaning aisle. The scents, the packaging... again, screams women! If we truly want to encourage our boys to clean, shouldn't we give them a cleaning product geared towards them?

When I opened the Hero Clean products, I could immediately tell these were different. They bottles were darker, much more man friendly and the scent? Definitely masculine! I had to put these products to the test right away.

First up, the laundry detergent. If ever there was a test for getting out the boy stink and stains, it's in the laundry- sweat, dirt, yuck- we've seen it all. So, I tossed in some of my son's clothes with the Hero Clean detergent. Not only did the clothes come clean, they smelled great too. The detergent left them with just a slight scent--- which to me smells very much like a men's body wash or the like. I loved that it was noticeable, which I think made my 10 year old boy feel a little more grown up, but not overpowering... one of your tops get thrown in with the boys' things? It's not going to be a huge deal.

Next, I had to use the Odor Eliminating Spray. Another area where you'll find a lot of boy stink... their bedrooms! I truly didn't expect this to begin until the teenage years, but well... boys will be boys right? A spritz around my son's room was just what we needed to keep his room smelling fresh.

The all purpose and dish/hand soap? Yes, those were fantastic too! My son actually WANTED to do the dishes...and wash his hands! Awesome!  But more than the great smell or packaging, the real test was...did it work well? To answer it simply, YES! They worked wonderfully on any and all boy messes I came across in my home. And because you can have them shipped automatically, this is a great option for men who don't often like to shop for such things too. In fact, I couldn't help but think that this would be a great options for bachelors, college students, or even service-members. We can make sure the boys in our life are being taken care of, even when we're not there to do it in person.

As a military wife, I of course also loved that not only did these products work, they support a great cause too! This is a product that I can truly feel good about using. I know that it is helping to keep my home clean (and boy friendly) AND that my money is going to make a difference in the life of veterans like my husband.
