The beauty behind Mrs. Meyer’s products lies within the company’s passion for the environment. They are committed to improving the earth, “one flower, plant and tree at a time.” The company designed all their products with that thought in mind. With inspired-scents from the garden such as basil, lavender, lemon verbena, honeysuckle, and geranium, Mrs. Meyers created the hard-working but gentle line of Clean Day Multi-Surface Everyday Cleaners.
While the entire collection is a force to be reckoned with, the star of the cleaning pack is the Lemon Verbena Multi-Surface Cleaner. The quick and easy spray works its magic on stuck-on dirt, leaving a clean and fresh scent in its wake. Part of its superpower is that it safely cleans hardwood floors, tiles, non-porous surfaces, bathroom fixtures, counter-tops, walls, and more. Once you are hooked on the multi-surface cleaning superhero, you can try things like dish soap, hand soap, body wash, laundry detergent, and air freshener. You can purchase any one of Mrs. Meyer’s products, reasonably priced, with peace of mind and comfort knowing it is cruelty-free, assured that it will do the job. Naturally.
The Better Life Natural Tub and Tile Cleaner made with Tea Tree Oil and Eucalyptus is part of a large line of environmentally friendly cleaning products. Two dads, Tim Barklage and Kevin Tibbs, who are life-long friends, came up with the idea while watching their children play together in the yard. Tim challenged Kevin, an innovative formulation chemist, to come up with something that was natural, and plant-based but strong enough to cut through and clean grease, dirt, and grime. Better Life was born.
The company featured on ABC’s Shark Tank, Oprah, and Simple Living, uses plant and mineral-based materials, like soap bark, corn, and coconut, naturally scented, biodegradable ingredients that are never tested on animals yet clean without compromise. There are no sulfates, dyes, or artificial scents. The Tub and Tile Cleaner dissolves rust, soap scum, and hard water stains, and can be used on most surfaces (see the label), leaving the bathroom safe for pets and children to play freely! Two concerned dads, a light bulb moment, who with a little ingenuity turned their concern into capital, and history was made.

In 2006, Patricia Spencer met Michael and Joan Edell at a soccer game cheering their daughters on and discovered a shared interest in eco-responsibility and safe and effective products for their families. They partnered up, and after years of developing formulas, they created Grab Green, a line of cleaning products that clean impeccably, look beautiful, and leave behind a lovely natural scent. Grab Green became the first in the industry to offer pod-based detergents, and the first to responsibly list all of the ingredients.
At the top of the line of their most popular products is the Natural 3-in-1 Detergent Pods. They come with scents like lavender and vanilla, gardenia, vetiver, and a fragrance-free option. The pods work with an organic enzyme-powered cleaner, are plant and mineral-based, have wonderful stain removing properties, and brightens colors.
