A few weeks ago I talked about how I’m trying to go green with my cleaning products. It’s definitely a process. I would say I’m about half-way there in getting rid of my old favorites (for review they would be: bleach, Lysol and Mr. Clean) and replacing them with something a bit less toxic.

One of my first loves ever in fancy schmancy best odor eliminator cleaning products was the hometown favorite Caldrea. Caldrea products are full of plant-derived ingredients and essential oils instead of harsh chemicals, the packaging is smart and the scents are amazing.  I remember getting a little 3-piece sink set at my Bridal shower that I would scour gift shops and boutiques in Columbia Missouri where we were living looking for replacement bottles when I ran out of my precious dish soap and hand soap.

When we moved to our 100 year old duplex in Minneapolis and had no dishwasher we started going through dish soap by the gallon. I quickly found that keeping that expensive dish soap on hand wasn’t really part of the budget at the rate we were going through it.

Enter Mrs. Meyers Clean Day. Funny enough, I wasn’t aware that Mrs. Meyers was owned by Caldrea…that works out quite well for me as I love to support local companies.  Like Caldrea, it’s got lovely scents that aren’t overly sweet or cloying and again, all natural ingredients and essential oils. Both brands tend towards the herbal and floral and are mostly single note scents- Rosemary, Parsley, Geranium.

Once I was hooked on the dish soap I moved on to my absolute favorite Mrs. Meyers Clean Day product- the Geranium Surface Scrub. This is the product that I used to clean my cherished claw foot tub. It was like special treatment for my little oasis.

Back to those scents- I live in a house full of boys. Well, a man and lots of little men. They are smelly. Three kids in diapers is SMELLY. You know what makes me happy? When opening the bathroom door gives me a nice waft of Basil Blue Sage hand soap instead of a diaper pail.

I have had a love affair with another brand’s counter top spray in the past and am now hooked on Caldrea’s Sea Salt and Neroli counter top spray. If you follow me on Twitter you may have seen me going on and on about the loveliness that was the scent in my kitchen and my table top and anything else I could convince myself counted as a “counter top”. It’s the little things.

So I’ve got some favorites here and they aren’t going to break the bank if I keep them in my cleaning arsenol, even on my budget. If you are looking to save a few pennies, go for the Mrs. Meyer’s Clean Day, you’ll get the same quality of the Caldrea and look smart while doing it. Although I don’t think you’ll regret choosing either.

Mrs. Meyer’s Clean Day is going to give one of my readers a copy of their book- Mrs. Meyer’s Clean Home! Mrs. Meyers book

It’s full of no-nonsense tips and tricks to keeping a clean home.

To enter this giveaway you must visit either Mrs. Meyers or Caldrea and tell me which product or scent you are most interested in.

    I use lots of mrs. Meyers at my house. My absolute favorite scent is the pine counter top spray they have at the holiday. But normally it would be the lemon or basil. The dishwasher packets work really well also. I don’t use caldrea but would be interested in trying it out as well. And now I have interest in the book….
