Cleaning House: My Favorite Household Cleaner

In my attempt to simplify our lifestyle I’ve also been making a huge push towards greener, healthier home as well.  I’ve always used things like vinegar, lemon (half a lemon for my garbage disposal!) and baking soda but sometimes you just want something a little extra.

This is one product that I can’t get enough of: Mrs. Meyers Clean Day Basil Scent

My Favorite Household Cleaner: Mrs. Meyers Clean Day Basil Scent #mrsmeyers

I love the clean and fresh Basil smell so much that I wish I could eat it.  (please note: don’t eat it)

I swear someone will buy our house because of the Basil herb scent.


All product picks, reviews and opinions are solely my own.  I only share things that I use in my own home.

    I teach 3, 4, and 5-year-olds and use Mrs. Meyer geranium in my classroom. I hope my kids will always think of preschool and all of the joy they experienced when they smell it in the future :)

    So, do they make this stuff super concentrated so you can dilute and use or is it premixed? I have had great luck with Castile soap so far.
    I was blown away when I used it as shampoo. I thought that was what those hardcore granola people use but a friend of mine turned me on to it. I thought it would make my scalp itchy but it was the opposite. My scalp felt great and I had no frizzies. I looked it up and you can add oil to it to keep the frizzies down, stuff like a few drops of Olive Oil, Almond Oil, etc.
    I picked up a bottle of the Basil one at Target and smelled it and it was DEVINE! I am definitely going to check it out. I just have to wait until I finish using what I have. Not enough room and I don’t want duplicates sitting around and not being used.

    Check out mrs Meyers on environmental working group. It is NOT green! I was shocked when found that out cause I loved mrs Meyers. But now I’m inspired to add basil essential oil to my homemade cleaner!
