June Summer Spruce Up Cravebox

This is not a normal Cravebox review.  This is a Summer Spruce Up Limited Edition Cravebox.  In addition to their regular boxes, Cravebox offers limited edition boxes several times a year.  What makes these limited is that there are only 1500 available.  You have to sign up on their website to be notified when these boxes are available.  From that point they choose 1500 people to receive a box.  The limited edition boxes cost the same as the regular Craveboxes which is $10 w/shipping included.  This is a one time charge for this specific limited edition box.  Future limited edition boxes include summer beauty, dog lovers, back to school and summer bbq.  

I was so excited when I received an email saying my entry was chosen to receive the Summer Spruce up box.  Don't get me wrong I'm not super excited about cleaning but I am excited about products that will make cleaning easier and quicker.       

I'm not going to break down the good and not so good for this since this is their limited edition box.  You can read about the montly Cravebox subscription click here

My summer cleaning treasures!

Contents of box with retail price

1 pair of Mr. Clean Bliss Gloves (latex-free)  $3.99 - These are super soft inside, I'm actually a little excited to use them. 

12 oz. can of Bar Keepers Friend Cleanser & Polish $4.95 - I used this (with the dawn cloth) to clean my black  gas cook top and since I was so happy with the results I went on to clean my white porcelain sink.  Both look shiny and clean now!  It was a little drying to my hands, I guess I should have worn the gloves. oops  

4 oz bottle of Sprayaway Glass Cleaner $2.49

1 Dawn Duo Sponge Cloth. $1.00 - great the with the bar keeper's friend.  Washed up nicely and will last many uses.  

Coupon for 1 box of Glad Tall Kitchen Bags. $5.49

The total value of my Summer Spruce up Cravebox is $17.92.  Not too shabby.  I have heard really good things about the Bar Keepers Friend stuff so I think I'll tackle my cooktop with that.  I'm always looking for a good glass cleaner so I'll try that on my car windows.  I don't normally wear gloves but maybe I should start so my nail polish will last longer.  I'm very happy with this box even though cleaning is not really my favorite thing. 

Verdict: This was totally worth the $10 I paid!

** I am not not any type of sponsor paid or unpaid for Cravebox.  I pay for these boxes myself.
