New Year, New You, New Blue!

2019 is in full swing, and if you’ve already broken your New Year’s resolutions, then it’s time for a new you… better yet a new blue! Having the blues can be the best part of your New Year! Here are the top 5 reasons having the blues is the best:

  1. Paste lots, want nots.
    You won’t want any other cleaning product after using this blue wonder. Ha-Ra Blue Paste is a micro-fine marble meal that removes tough stains on many surfaces without using harsh chemicals.
  2. Sapphire those other clothes.
    Cleaning with the right cloth is vital to beautiful, effective, and environmentally friendly experience. Paper towels, old t-shirts, dish rags, and wet naps are no match for the blue gem. The Ha-Ra Sapphire Cloth is designed for high-powered cleaning using only the special sling fiber and water. No need to dry the surface, as it will be streak-free! You’ll have more time on your hands to do the things you love.
  3. Mach your day.
    Cleaning with a glove is a delight. It feels like an extension of your natural self. You can speed up your cleaning with this blue freckled friend. The Ha-Ra Mach6 Glove is a combination of different fibers which makes it a great glove for breaking up dirt and removing it. It can be used everywhere in the house.
  4. Star of the show.
    Polishing takes your home from just clean to spectacularly sparkling. When people come over do you want them thinking “This house is not dirty” or “Wow this house really shines. What’s the secret?” The secret is this blue beauty. The Ha-Ra Star Cloth is a super absorbent cleaning and polishing cloth that works like a chamois for streak free cleaning of smooth surfaces.
  5. The whole KIT-inca-BLUE-dle.
    Buying individual cleaning products is great when you need to refill or replace something, but the new blue you needs the whole kit-inca-blue-dle. That’s right buying a kit of cleaning products gives you everything you need in one shot. The Ha-Ra Kitchen Kit consists of the essential cloths for keeping your kitchen sparkling clean with less effort.

There you have it! New year, new you, new blue! Keep cleaning easy, effective, and earth friendly. This blue planet needs more blue folks like you using blue (and green) products from Ha-Ra. Let’s make 2019 BLUE-tiful!

5 Rounds to Thanksgiving Prep Like a Pro

Here they come! Are you ready? Is your house? Family and friends are coming over to share in this special day of thanks. And, you can be thankful for all the easy ways you have to clean your home. It might be a long day, but it doesn’t have to be a hard day. Focus on food, family, and friends, not cleaning the house! Here are five rounds to cleaning quickly and effortlessly.

Round 1: Kitchen Quickie.

Before you start prepping your turkey, give the kitchen a quick clean making sure that your surfaces are ready to prepare your upcoming feast. Using your Ha-Ra Sapphire Cloth with just water to wipe down all the surfaces will give you more time for that big turkey.

Round 2: Love the bathroom.

Now that the turkey is in the oven, you can focus on the rest of the house. The bathroom is crucial. Guests can handle a little dust here or there, but they’ll definitely notice a dirty bathroom. Keep sinks, toilets, and shelves clean with the Ha-Ra Mach6 Glove!

Round 3: Knock the dust to the floor.

If you dust before you vacuum and sweep, then you can just dust care free, letting it all fall to the floor Dusting with a glove is also super fun and easy, and we have a glove for all occasions. For dusting, the Ha-Ra Dry Glove is the perfect fit!

Round 4: Conquer the floors.

After all other surfaces are clean, it’s time to address all the dirt eagerly awaiting pickup on the floor. Vacuum your carpets. Then, make your hard surfaces shine with the Ha-Ra Floor Kit. Beautiful!

Round 5: Cook the feast! Then, clean the kitchen.

After all that cooking, the kitchen is probably a disaster. But, don’t worry, cleaning up is super simple! Just bust out your handy Ha-Ra Scrub Cloth and clean all that grease and grime right up. Then, hit the floor with your Ha-Ra Floor Kit, and you are done!

When it is time for the guests to arrive, you and your home will be ready to go! Adjust the lighting. Put on some music. Give thanks, and eat yourself into a coma. Maybe let the kids clean up after everyone leaves… 🙂  Happy Thanksgiving!

Reducing Your Plastic Use

Plastic. It’s a word on everyone’s mind these days, and for good reason! With our oceans and landfills filling with mountains of plastic, communities are starting to pay attention to plastic use and thinking about sustainable alternatives. Some changes are easier than others, so we’ve compiled a list of ways you can personally decrease your plastic use.

Bring your own shopping bags.

There are so many alternatives to plastic bags, including cardboard boxes, or beautiful canvas bags. Keep them in your car for convenience! Remember mesh bags for fruit and vegetables as well.

Stop buying bottled water.

Get yourself a reusable bottle, and drink from the tap or a filtering system.

Bring your own cup: BYOC!

Keeping your favorite coffee mug on hand is easy and reduces waste from your daily coffee clutch.

Say no to straws!

There are plenty of alternatives, from metal to paper, to no straw at all! Straws are used for an average of 10 minutes and then thrown away. They take 100 years to break down…

Skip the disposables.

Razors, diapers, utensils, the list goes on! Get items that last, and keep them on hand.

Reusable food storage.

Reusable containers go a long way, and there are many sizes and shapes available for your needs!

Use Ha-Ra!

With Ha-Ra cleaning products, you’ll need fewer products and they last longer, which equals less waste overall! (Plus, they are chemical free.)

 

We’re all in this together! Have any other ideas on how to cut down your plastic consumption? Share them with us on Facebook or Twitter: @harausa

Show Your Father How To Be An Eco Hero

Father’s Day is just around the corner! Behind all the corny jokes, embarrassing fashion choices, and constant attempts to “build character”, there are some pretty eco-savvy dads out there. This year, show your love and appreciation for the important father figures in your life with green gifts that will help ensure there are many more generations of fathers to come!

Here are 5 of our favorite ideas:

  1. Buy secondhand or vintage: Does your dad need a new fishing pole or tie? Consider choosing items that are pre-loved!  They are often just as good, if not better, than the newer version, and your dad is sure to appreciate your thrifty thinking!

  2. Think reusable: Help your dad ditch the disposable coffee cups, bags, utensils, razors, etc. There are great reusable travel mugs, tote bags, and packable utensils that fit any dad’s style!

  3. Go green when you grill: Grilling is often a Father’s Day tradition, but before you fire up the barbecue, buy your food from local sources like farmer’s markets and grocery stores who support local farmers.

  4. Conscious brewing: Whether your dad loves his coffee, cold beer, or both, make sure he’s sipping on sustainable beans and organic beers!  There are plenty of choices out there, so put some thought into what you purchase.

  5. Get your dad hooked on Ha-Ra! Most dads love simplicity, efficiency, and value, so if your dad doesn’t already love Ha-Ra, he will.  We have plenty of products to choose from that will show your dad he raised you well.
