Use Mrs. Meyer’s to Save Time, Money, and the Planet
To save time and money there’s no better cleaning solution than Mrs. Meyer’s Clean Day aromatherapeutic household cleaners. And if you like to keep things simple, you are going to love Mrs. Meyer’s. Here’s my experience with the all purpose cleaner.
The Next Best Thing to Homemade Cleaners
I tried - honest I did – to be good and make my own household cleaners. I longed to whip up mixtures with vinegar and baking soda. I vowed that each time something ran out I would replace the store bought product with a homemade concoction. The trouble was, every time my cleaning products ran low, it seemed to coincide with a low point in my motivation. I’d give in and buy another product off the shelf. Finally I accepted the fact that I probably wouldn’t be able to go all-natural any time soon.
Paying a Premium to Save a LOT of Money
Once I’d accepted that I wasn’t really going to make my own cleaning solutions, I started looking for a suitable green alternative. At first I was a little put off by the prices. Environmental ethics aren’t cheap. Finally I plunked down $8 for a 32 once bottle of all purpose cleaner. What sold me? First, the lavender scent. (They also come in Basil, Lemon Verbena, and Geranium) Next, the promise on the label: this concentrated formula is mixed with water at a ratio of ¼ cup to one gallon! And then there were the ingredients – nothing synthetic, nothing toxic. I’m not especially concerned about babies or pets getting into my household cleaner, but greener is better, right?
Mrs. Meyer’s Lasts For Months
I don’t know how much I was spending before on cleaning products, but I know I’ve had my bottle of Mrs. Meyer’s for over six months now and it’s not even half gone. So I’m thinking $8 for at least a year’s worth of cleaner is pretty good. To give you an idea of how much you need to use, a capful is too much for my spray bottle. I sometimes wonder how the company stays in business!
Mrs. Meyer’s Puts the ALL Back Into All Purpose
Mrs. Meyer’s Clean Day company motto says they “make honest, hardworking cleaners that work like the dickens on dirt.” They remind us that keeping clean is easy. “All you need is a sensible pair of shoes, a little elbow grease, and the right soap.”
The All Purpose Cleaner is that soap. The company sells a lot of other products, and I’m sure I’ll start trying them soon. But honestly, the all-purpose cleaner really is that – ALL purpose. I use the stuff on practically everything in my house – kitchen, granite, metal, sinks, toilet, glass and mirrors. And it leaves this awesome scent that smells just as good or better than any boutique home spray.
Homemade probably is best, but only if you actually make it. For this failed environmentalist, finding Mrs. Meyer’s has been a godsend. (Not to mention the bargain of a lifetime!)
