In our home, we’re really fanatic about laundry detergents. I know that sounds strange, but finding a really good laundry detergent is really important. And it’s also important that the laundry detergent be free of artificial scents and helps to improve the environment. With so many different laundry detergents to choose from, one can get really lost in finding the one that’s perfect. But what’s perfect for one person doesn’t work so well for another. And there’s also a variety of detergent styles out there that can get really confusing as to which is better.
For me, I like the traditional laundry detergent liquid. I like knowing how much I’m pouring and I can control the amount. I also like my clothes to smell as clean as they were first purchased, whether it’s without any scents or with natural essential oils. One of the companies whom we’ve really come to appreciate their products is Mrs. Meyers. You may have heard of Mrs. Meyers – her products are practically everywhere and that’s because she’s been in the natural home and personal cleaning industry for a very long time. When we first heard of Mrs. Meyers, I was intrigued by their products and the fragrances that were used. With scents such as Lemon Verbena, Basil, Parsley, and so forth, I was delighted at the many varieties offered and the emotions that came along with them. Yes, scents evoke pretty powerful emotions. For instance, when I tried their Lemon Verbena Laundry Detergent, I felt a sense of relaxation and calm – even more so than the famous Lavender scent. The lemon has natural antiseptic and refreshing powers and with the blend of Verbena, a soothing herb, and Clover, you get a really smooth and pleasant aroma that lingers slightly on your laundry after washing. One of my other favorite scent is Parsley. It smells slighty of that herby parsley scent yet it’s not overwhelming and actually quite delightful. Other familiar scents like Lavender and Geranium are always pleasant to the senses and comforting with just enough fragrance.
But unique scents isn’t the only powerhouse of Mrs. Meyers. At Mrs. Meyers, they believe in using natural ingredients that are safe for people and for the environment. Their products do not contain ammonia, chlorine, glycol solvents, parabens, phthalates, formaldehyde, artificial colorants, phosphates or petroleum distillates. And their liquid products are completely biodegradable and they do not test their products on animals. And the best part yet – Mrs. Meyers has such a great range of products to choose from, you’ll most likely find something you can use in your home. Currently, Mrs. Meyers produces household cleaning products such as: Liquid Dish Soaps, All-Purpose Cleaners (which is really usable for almost anything!), Automatic Dish Packs, Countertop Sprays, Surface Scrubs, Surface Wipes, Bathroom Cleaners, Glass Cleaner, and Toilet Bowl Cleaner. They also make liquid hand soaps which includes liquid and bar soaps as well as refills. Mrs. Meyers also produces Laundry Detergents, Fabric Softeners, and Dryer Sheets as well as air fresheners such as Soy Candles and Room Sprays. I have yet to try their Soy Candles but with scents like Basil, Lavender, Lemon Verbena, and Geranium, I’m sure one of all of those naturally scented candles would be great!
What drew me to Mrs. Meyers was not only because they use natural essential oils and natural ingredients. It was because of the scents that are offered. I don’t like my cleaning products to be heavily scented. When I’m not using my own homemade cleaning solutions with baking soda, water, and vinegar, I do like my scented household products to be from natural plants and to smell as gentle as possible. When Mrs. Meyers had sent me their newest 4x concentrated liquid laundry detergent in Lemon Verbena, I couldn’t wait to give it a try. As stated earlier, I’m really choosy when it comes to laundry detergents and the scents that most companies use but the Lemon Verbena from Mrs. Meyers did not disappoint in the fragrance department nor the cleaning department. With 4 times the cleaning power than other laundry detergents, I was able to use only a little bit for a regular wash which saves a lot of money and is less harmful to the environment and the ocean. The bottle is recyclable and is smaller than average so it’s less waste for the environment as well. The only thing is that with a squeeze top, it got a bit messy the first couple of times of using it, but I became more careful with the bottle later on. And after each wash, you can smell a delicate scent of citrus and something herby – not overwhelming like most mainstream laundry detergents.
So if you’re looking for something new to clean your laundry with or you want to try one of Mrs. Meyers unique scent-blends, then I’m sure you’ll find something to your liking. We like to use their liquid dish soaps as well and it definitely makes hand washing the dishes more of a pleasure than a chore!
