Safe from toxins

In 2007 two life long friends, Tim Barklage and Kevin Tibbs, were watching their toddlers crawl across the floors and climbing up and around on all kinds of surfaces in the home (and then put their little fingers in their mouth of course). As concerned new parents, they began discussing the dangers of traditional cleaners and the toxic residues they leave behind. Tim (always the optimist) challenged Kevin, an innovative formulation chemist, to create a new line of cleaning products that set the standard in safety and work better than anything out there.No small order, Kevin began his work in the lab with his plant-derived ingredients and Tim got to work on building the brand. The result of their efforts are a line of products that keep kids, pets and the planet safe. No more harmful chemicals in the air and on the surfaces of our homes and planet. Better Life set out to not only create a better product but a better solution for all.

What people say about BetterLife

"I can't write enough about how happy I am to have found your line of products, not only for our own relief and safety, but for our cat's and guests, and future family.  I love Better Life's story and motivation.  Please keep it up! A very happy customer."

“"Reptiles are sensitive to smells and touch. So, when I saw Better Life on Shark Tank, it immediately caught my interest. I now use Better Life products to clean all of our tanks and aquariums. I use the what-EVER! as both a spot cleaner in between cleans, as well as, when we do deep cleans without the worry it will be harmful to the reptiles. We need more products like Better Life that are safe for the reptiles during cleaning and that have any harmful effects afterwards.”

“"Just a note to thank you for making such a wonderful wood floor cleaner. We just had our wood floors redone - stripped and stained a deeper color. I wanted a cleaner that was safe, healthy, and did a beautiful job. You can see by the included picture that your cleaner meets all of my needs. Thank you so much!”
