What's In The Cleaning Lady's Bucket?

This is a segment dedicated to my personal favorites from glass cleaners, to sponges, earth friendly or not, this is what's in my bucket!  The info I post here is as much for me as it is for you.  In this business it is really good to know what you're dealing with for the safety of you and the clients!

Mrs. Meyer's All Purpose Cleaner Lavender

This stuff is honestly such a great thing with which to clean!  Here are the reasons it rocks and also a recipe to make it last waaaaaaaay longer so that you get the most for your money!

        • When cleaning for a long time, it is extra nice to enjoy the smell of what you are using!  Mrs. Meyers is perfect for this reason.  I almost get excited about using these products because they smell so good!  My favorite scents from the line include lavendar, geranium, basil, and lemon verbana in that order.  

        • This product works great.  I suggest getting the all purpose cleaner and an empty spray bottle and mixing your own.  The product is kinda soapy.  Here is the recipe to not only make it last longer but to truly be able to use it on everything from mirrors to wood furniture to plastic and more.
            • Mix in a spray bottle about a 1/8 to 1/4 cup (depending on how powerful it needs to be) mrs. meyers all purpose cleaner with about a cup of vinegar.  Add water to the mixture until it reaches the top of the bottle.  DONE!

        • The only thing that I would like to see handled differently is the disclosure of product info on the label.  I am a big advocate for the consumer being able to know what they are buying and labeling is one of the best ways to help consumers maintain power in choosing what to consume.  Because the info is not on the label I have included this link to Mrs. Meyer's homepage which includes a disclosure of sorts about their environmentally safe and cruelty free methods.
