A few years ago I was at my boss’s apartment, and I found myself washing a few dishes in her sink. I immediately fell in love with her dish soap — it smelled so good I actually wanted to do the dishes. Ever since then, I’ve been treating myself to Mrs. Meyer’s Clean Day dish soap. I love all the scents, but Lemon Verbena is a particular favorite. It may seem silly to spend the extra dollars on fancy soap for your dirty dishes, but it’s only an extra couple of bucks every few months, and well, it makes me happy.
I also like it that the company is eco-friendly. According to the Mrs. Meyer’s website, “All of our cleaning supplies are made with natural essential oils, are biodegradable and phosphate-free, and we never test on animals.” So, I can feel good about those extra spent dollars. I'm also a fan of their all-purpose cleaner. If you want to bring a hostess gift, these products are a fantastic alternative to the ubiquitous scented candle.
