I love having a fresh smelling house, but I do not enjoy scents that are more like perfume rather than a natural scent like a fresh ocean breeze, for example.
Well, I have finally found the best cleaning product line with the best scents around. Mrs. Meyers Cleaning products are wonderfully fresh and natural and truly make wiping down my kitchen counter a delight. 🙂
My First Discovery of Mrs. Meyer’s Cleaning products
My family and I were at a dinner party at a friend’s house and we noticed a fresh scent in the air that really was like no other. It was not filled with chemicals, it was natural and it seemed to pervade throughout the whole house. The scent was from the geranium soap that was in the bathrooms and kitchen.
I remember that the next day, I went to my local ACE hardware store and purchased the geranium soap and kitchen counter spray, and the rest is history. I simply cannot go back to traditional stinky cleaners.
Different Scents to try
Currently, my favorite scents in the line are geranium and apple. I started out with the counter spray in geranium and used it for at least a year, until my local store decided to not carry that scent anymore. I tried basil, another fresh scent in their aromatherapy line. The basil is nice, but, in my opinion, not as great as geranium. Still, it is very refreshing. There’s just something about that geranium…..
After the basil, I tried the lavender which is nice as well, but I think better for the bathrooms than the kitchen. My kitchen is in the center of my house, so when I started using these aromatherapy cleaners, I focused on my kitchen spray first. The smell seems to permeate throughout the whole house. For my kitchen, I enjoy the geranium, basil and apple.
My 10 year old daughter loves the apple scented pump soap in her bathroom. When we ran out last week, she put the empty bottle in my purse to remind me this was a priority purchase for the day. 🙂 When you walk into the kids bathroom, it smells like an apple orchard. Very natural and fresh. Love the Apple!
In a nutshell, we are currently using geranium and apple for both the kitchen and the bathrooms and love it.
How Mrs. Meyer’s Clean Day Products Began
It is not really a surprise that these wonderful products were inspired by a Mom. This Mom, Thelma Meyer, is an Iowa Mom of nine children!
One of Thelma’s daughters, Monica, was walking down the cleaning aisle at a grocery store and she noticed that the products were all filled with foul smelling chemicals. The harsh chemicals in a home with young children is rather startling to a young mother, when you consider that the scene could be so much different. It occurred to Monica that she could create tough cleaners that smelled like fresh botanicals and herbs, instead of chemicals. She wanted to name her creations after her Mom, Mrs. Meyer, to honor her old fashioned values. You see, these cleaners are honest and straight forward goodness from nature that is tough on dirt as well.
Thelma wishes she had access to these cleaners when she was raising nine children. She says that having an aromatherapy experience every day while you are cleaning is a dream come true and would have helped her greatly when raising her kids.
I know I am very thankful for Monica’s diligence in creating these products. My house smells like a botanical garden and apple orchard and I just LOVE it. In fact, my whole family loves it.
