I was introduced to Mrs. Meyers (the cleaning brand not the woman) a few years ago.... it is developed in Minnesota (making it kind of local). We use the Meyer's handsoap and the Mrs. Meyer's countertop spray. It is my small contribution towards the going green when I clean lifestyle. This is a hard area to change but I believe just changing one product helps our earth. However, I will also admit that sticking with Mrs. Meyer's countertop spray is more about how much I LOVE the scent and product.
Instead of buying a new spray bottle each time my mom figured out that you can buy Mrs. Meyer's All Purpose Cleaner in a 32 ounce container and you can dilute it 1/4 cup with a gallon of water to make the refill for the spray bottle...since the spray bottle is only 16 ounces...you use VERY LITTLE to refill your bottle! We have had our refill bottle for over a year...
My favorite part of Mrs. Meyer's cleaning products: They smell real (not chemically) and they don't leave a weird film on the counters. I appreciate that the product is biodegradable and uses natural ingredients. I love that it is safe around children. You can visit Mrs. Meyer's website to learn more!
