I ran out of my favorite countertop spray cleaner recently and since I bought it 8 million years ago at a random store in a mall I never shopped at in Massachusetts, I didn’t have easy access to track it down again short of *gasp* going online. I probably would have gone online, too, except when I was at Target the other day I spotted this bottle of Orange Clove scented Countertop spray by Mrs Meyers (and if it’s not in stock at Target it looks like you can buy it right from Mrs. Meyers website, too!) and thought I’d give it a try.
Oh my gosh guys, LOVE. The scent of this spray makes me feel like a domestic goddess when all I’ve actually done is finally cleaned my darn counters. Sometimes when a scented cleaning product lingers it feels all artificial and invasive but in this instance I kind of wanted to just keep spraying it forever. Like probably my counters are still dirty even though they are all sparkly and grime free after the first go round? No? Guess I’ll just need to get them dirty again!
You guys probably already know that Mrs. Meyers makes tons of earth friendly cleaning products that contain natural essential oils to clean, degrease and remove odors, and that their products are cruelty-free and not tested on animals… and so on and so forth… I know I’ve seen their products in the store a lot but I haven’t bothered to test them out before because I tend to get stuck in a rut with my cleaning products and just keep buying the same brands.
But after trying this counter spray, I’m going to have to add Mrs. Meyers to my Welcome to Jen’s Rut list and try some more of their products. Being a nerd, I felt compelled to look at Mrs. Meyers website. How cute is their origin story?
Our products were inspired by Mrs. Thelma A. Meyer, an Iowa homemaker and mother of nine. It all started when one of her daughters was walking down a cleaning aisle, eyeing all the products with their harsh, stinky chemicals. Right then and there, she had an idea: “Let’s make cleaners that smell nice, like my mom’s garden, but still work like the dickens on daily dirt and grime.”
Looking at their website, I found a TON of scents that I’d never known they sold before as Target tends to just sell the three or four basic scents and the occasional seasonal scent. I’m dying to check out their rhubarb hand soap and I rarely turn down a lemon scented cleaner so the lemon verbena is one I’ll be checking out soon, too.
