My new cleaning stuff

A week or so ago I was reading O Happy Day and she was talking about a company called Mrs. Meyers Clean Day. And she said how awesome it was. As I have been trying to use more earth friendly products I was interested. I went to the website and saw that it was a little expensive. I thought about ordering some online, and then I looked to see if any stores in my area carried it. I got lucky and my local Linens and Things carried it. I got to go by myself on Thursday, the only problem was that day I could not taste or smell. I bought several of the Geranium scent (mostly because I don't like lavender scent or lemon verbena and those were the only other scents they had) and I hoped that it smelled good. I asked the lady that rang me up to smell it and she said it smelled really good. Friday I woke up and my smell and taste were back. I LOVE my new cleaning stuff. Yeah, it's expensive. But my vinegar cleaning stuff was not going well. The smell about did me in every time I used it, even with the fan on. I guess I could get used to it, but I really wasn't willing to do that. So now my house will smell like geraniums. And I stocked up because it didn't look like that store had too much. I'm hoping what I have will last me for a while. I highly recommend it as it is not bad for our earth, smells great, and cleans well. Now I just have to find a mop that I like to replace my swiffer (those pads have got to be as bad as diapers being thrown into our landfills) so that I can have geranium scented floors.

I am such a dork when it comes to good smelling cleaning products! Have you tried the Method stuff at Target? I really like their Lavender spray.

I haven't tried this yet, but you can get reusable pads for your Swiffer, I know they have them on Etsy.
I love the disposables but I go through them so fast, and they're expensive! So I think I'm going to give the reusable ones a try.

if there were a way to fill up the empty swiffer bottles with my own stuff, i would really want to do that. i'll have to think about it. they do look pretty interesting. thanks for letting me know about them. i would never have thought to look for them on etsy.

Good point about refilling the empty bottles - I don't have a WetJet, just a regular Swiffer so I use a spray bottle of whatever cleanser I'm using and mop w/the Swiffer.
