Mrs. Meyer’s makes “Clean Day” aromatherapeutic household cleaners. All products are cruelty-free, and have never been tested on animals. There are no solvents, no petroleum distillates, no bleach, no phosphates and no ingredients that could cause harsh fumes. Most of their products have a near neutral pH that makes them safe for skin contact.
Their products are also environmentally friendly. All of their liquid cleaning products are biodegradable, and the powdered products break down into “non-harmful decomposition products.”
They are middle of the road, in my opinion, as far as being “natural” goes. Here is what they have to say: We use naturally derived ingredients whenever possible from corn, sugar cane, coconut and palm. When we cannot find a plant-derived ingredient that performs to our rigorous standards, we use ingredients from the world of safe synthetics. These are materials with a long history of safety and efficacy in use for people and the environment they live in. At Mrs. Meyer’s Clean Day, we do our best every day to make our formulations as natural as possible without compromising freshness, and performance.
The all purpose cleaner is to be diluted 1/4 cup to 1 gallon of water. You can also use 4 Tablespoons to a half bottle of water to make a refill for the countertop spray
. The MSRP of a 32 oz concentrated bottle is $7.99.
I went off in hunt of an empty spray bottle and came home with a bottle of countertop spray!
A 32 oz, empty Rubbermaid bottle (the only one I could find other than travel size/personal care bottles) was $3.99 and out of stock. The 16 oz bottle of countertop spray was also $3.99! Easy choice.
The countertop spray is basically the all purpose cleaner, with an additional vegetable protein extract added to remove odors.
The spray is safe for all non-porous surfaces, so I suppose I technically should not be using it on my counters.
Don’t tell the granite police on me, m’kay? I think they look great!
The liquid hand soap is 12.5 ounces with an MSRP of $3.99.
It does contain sodium laureth sulfate.
I think the pump blends in nicely with my kitchen!
The soap foamed nicely, though it didn’t make big, giant bubbles. It rinsed off cleanly and easily in our soft water, something I can’t say about other soaps. Initially I thought the scent was a bit strong for my sensitive sniffer, but it mellowed out shortly after I washed my hands. The scent sticks around, but it doesn’t stay terribly strong.
I also received the dish soap in the lemon verbena scent.
I really don’t hand wash a lot of dishes. Mostly things that don’t fit in the dishwasher, can’t go in the dishwasher, or things that can’t wait for the dishwasher to be full. I washed the cake saver thingie that my son’s Birthday cake was in; it had some pretty caked on, greasy buttercream icing and fondant on it.
Just a little squirt.
Nice and clean. Rinsed easily. The lemon verbena scent actually reminds me of lemon dish soap. Hard to describe, but it is much milder and more earthy smelling then the fresh, citrusy “kitchen lemon” type scent.
