Mrs. Meyer’s and Me (and a #Giveaway)

Posted by Dani on December 18, 2016

Have you tried Mrs. Meyers Clean Day products? Here's a review, via

Growing up, I dreaded “Clean Day.” This was always Saturday in my home, and even at a young age I was expected to help out. Definitely not my favourite day of the week! At that age, I didn’t really appreciate how nice it was to live in a home that was well taken care of.

When I first moved out, I tried to stick to a weekly cleaning schedule. It was fairly manageable in the early years when I lived in a small rental apartment or in my first home, a tiny bungalow. Once the kids came and life got more complicated, the weekly cleaning plan flew out the window. In order to keep up, I had to fit the cleaning chores in when I could.

These days, life is still a little complicated and I try to keep up as best I can. Although I LOVE it when the whole house is clean, I can’t say I enjoy the process very much. So when Mrs. Meyer’s contacted me about trying out some of their cleaning products, I jumped at the chance. Cute vintage-style bottles filled with plant-derived ingredients and essential oils? Sign me up! As Mrs. Meyer herself says, “If you can make cleaning more pleasant, well, why wouldn’t you?”

There are a lot of other great reasons to love Mrs. Meyer’s Clean Day products. One big one for me is that they are formulated with real essential oils. The box of products smelled amazing when it arrived at my door! I find I love anything containing essential oils, and these products are no exception. It’s great to be able to get a touch of aromatherapy as I clean. I also love that the products use plant-based ingredients but don’t compromise on performance. They provide an ingredient glossary on the site where you can find out more about what goes into these products.

Also important to me is what they don’t do. Mrs. Meyer’s Clean Day products don’t contain ammonia, chlorine, glycol solvents, parabens, phthalates, formaldehyde, artificial colorants, phosphates or petroleum distillates. That’s a big mouthful! What’s important to know is that those are the kinds of ingredients you want to avoid wherever possible. I’m a Chemical Engineer, and trust me when I say we’re overloaded with all kinds of chemicals in our daily lives, and we should jump at the chance to cut that back whenever we can.

Another biggie – they don’t test their products on animals. I love that, pure and simple.

Besides the amazing smell, the big issue of course is how these products work. The first product out of the box for me was the Mrs. Meyer’s Clean Day Hand Soap. This time of year, I wash my hands frequently and pay the price with dry chapped hands. Not with this product, though. The aloe vera and olive oil in the ingredients left my hands feeling clean but soft and definitely not try. This was a big win for me.

In the kitchen, the Clean Day Dish Soap was a pleasure to use. One of my pet peeves with green cleaners is that they just don’t cut grease on dirty dishes, but this soap did a great job. I also loved the Clean Day All-Purpose Cleaner for the kitchen counters and cabinets. I keep my bottle handy and use it to wipe up spills on the appliances and floor too. I tried it out on the bathroom sink and fixtures, and it left them gleaming.

The Clean Day Multi-Surface Concentrate is a great general cleaner for surfaces and floors. I used it to mop up my tiled floors and even the wood floor in my kitchen. It’s concentrated so a little goes a long way, and you can always use it in a stronger mix if the situation is extra grimey!Have you tried Mrs. Meyers Clean Day products? Here's a review, via fresh, non-chemical smell afterwards was my favourite part! Every time I cleaned something or washed my hands, the room was filled with a light scent of Lavender, Lemon Verbena, Basil or Honeysuckle. How can that not make you feel great?

  6. Amy C says:

    My cleaning tip is to clean one room at a time.

  7. Angela Mitchell says:

    My cleaning tip is to have a rubbermaid type bin with handles filled with all your favourite cleaning supplies and rags etc. The carry bin makes it easy to carry supplies from room to room and makes cleaning them up nice and easy.

  15. Heather Swanson says:

    an old toothbrush works wonders for the hard to reach spots

  16. Courtney A says:

    If you burn what you’re cooking in a pot, and get the black burnt stuff stuck to the bottom, use baking soda and vinegar, scrub and repeat. (I once burned a large pot of maple syrup I was supposed to be watching, took a while to clean it, but somehow I did!)

  17. milly says:

    Separate out washing and disinfecting. Soap products can do a lot to clean and save the disinfectant for certain surfaces.

    Use a Q-tip for cleaning in tiny places. Toothbrushes are good for this, too.

  21. Marlene V. says:

    I clean every week and pick one area to do some deep cleaning.

  22. lbwran says:

    My favorite “cleaning day” (that, let’s face it – often stretches into days) tip to share is to start with making sure all dishes are washed and put away.
    A tidy kitchen is always great motivation to make a CLEAN kitchen…and to work towards a clean house. After dishes, clean from top to bottom.
    Top of the cubbards (if you have space way up there), top of the fridge, stove hood, microwave, toaster, any other things living on the counter.

  23. Cairine says:

    My cleaning tip is to not leave it for all at once. If the bathroom mirror is dirty wash it, wash dishes as you go, pick up stuff that is laying around and put it where it belongs. All these things will keep your home cleaner.

  31. Cathy Oppedisano says:

    My favourite cleaning tip is to use gloves or cleaning products that are ultra gentle. My hands can only take so much before the skin gets dried out.

  32. 409cope says:

    I start at the top of my house and work my way down.

  33. Sara Muzzatti says:

    Lemon juice on stovetops cut grease like nobody’s business and smells awesome

  34. katy emanuel says:

    We have started keeping a microfibre cloth under each bathroom sink so every night after teeth are finished being brushed the counter and sink get a quick wipe down to make the weekly clean go quicker and it also means that things look tidy should anyone pop by for a visit

  53. OpheliaC says:

    Swiffer!! We go through Swiffer pads like crazy!!

  54. Lee-Ann says:

    I make my kids help with cleaning around the house but they don’t do a very good job. I’ve learned to get go of the small things, especially when they were younger. I also like to have a cleaning routine, it helps me stay on top of stuff.

  55. Laurie W. says:

    My favourite cleaning tip is to always leave a room a little tidier or cleaner than it was when you entered it. It can be something as little as picking things up and putting them away to a quick dusting or sweeping. It helps so that the major cleaning days go faster.

  56. Krista M says:

    My tips is to always do 1 small thing each time you leave the main room. For instance at commercial breaks on tv, get up & pick up all the garbage or toys you see lying around. Never leave a room empty handed.

    My tip is to clean as you go and get everyone to pick up after themselves.
