Pink Saturday - I love this stuff!

Pink Saturday - Beverly, at the blog "How Sweet the Sound" hosts Pink Saturday. Let the color pink inspire you.

Some Saturdays, even if it's a weekend, we have to spend some time doing housework. No one loves doing housework, but I have to say, for the first time in my life I have found something that makes doing housework pleasant.

It's Meyer's Clean Day cleaning products. Now, I don't want you to think I'm going in for product endorsements. I know that the company touts its commitment to using natural, plant derived ingredients. I know they make biodegradable products. I know that their products are not animal-tested, and I know that they try to use ingredients that don't aggravate peoples' allergies. All very wonderful.

But you know why I love their products?

Their fragrance is heavenly.

I have been using their Rose Geranium scented dish detergent now for a couple of months, and I have to tell you that if I couldn't care less about anything else, the fact that I get to smell that incredible scent when I clean my frying pan is enough to make me want to spend the extra money it costs to buy Meyer's dish detergent instead of Joy.

As you can see if you click on the link, a 16 ounce bottle of dish detergent costs $3.99. At my local Von's you can get 30 ounces of Joy for $2.99. So at first glance, it might seem foolish to spend so much more on a different product.

But you know what? With the way things are in this world, we all need a little pleasure. And in this economy, if I can get a little extra pleasure out of something for only a couple of bucks - I think it's a pretty good deal.

Rose Geranium dish detergent makes your hands smell just like they do if you pluck a leaf from a scented geranium and rub it between your fingers. In the depths of winter, it brings you a whiff of early summer. It's well worth it.

Meyers has cleaning products for household and for pet clean up. You can get scents like Basil, Lavender, Lemon Verbena, Peppermint, or something called Baby Blossom for their baby products. I love Lemon Verbena, but hands down, my favorite is Rose Geranium. You can get all-purpose cleanser, toilet bowl cleaner, automatic dishwashing liquid, laundry detergent, and even scented candles. It's pink, too. Which makes it even better.

Because why not pay a little more for a simple pleasure that's PINK?

Hi G
We don't have that brand here. Similar stuff but not that one.
I must comment on your "eyebrow & mustache". The ladies here do the threading thing also. My sister has it done and it's less painful and better for you.
You look great!!!
Love Claudie

Hi G,
Isn't that funny that we both posted on a pink cleaning product?

Yours looks like something I would like to try!

Not a thing wrong with sharing a little pink product endorsement with your pink sisters... as long as it is Divine! Dixie

JCK said...

If it helps inspire cleaning, it must be magnificent!

Jenny S said...

I have never tried these products, but have always wanted to! I might have to get some the next time I am out! I love anything lemon, I even used to wear 'Love's Baby Soft Lemon" and loved it!! Thanks for the idea!!

Kathleen said...

I love getting little tips like this when I visit blogs. It sounds wonderful. I will have to check my Natural food store for some. I love pink, the fragrance sounds delightful, AND I get to help out the ecology. Terrific. Happy PS, hugs,

The Muse said...

Thanks for Pink Saturday fun!

I am not covered up with pink here, at our cottage, The Painted Nest, LOL so that SAT was a stretch for me!! :) LOL

I am running behind on my comments as I have been traveling for work :)

If you can smile and say AHHHH while cleaning..then GO PINK! LOL

Lynn@ The Vintage Nest said...

G....loved your post. I have a new (new to me anyway) cleaning product that it too smells divine. Sometimes I fill the kitchen sink up with water and add a bit of the cleaner just for the fragrance because you can smell it all over the house. And it's a clean fresh smell too...not heavy. Happy belated Pink Saturday and thank you for the Birthday Wishes. :) Lynn

jeanne said...

Let me just tell you that I have been using Mrs. Meyers and Caldrea (sister companies) for 13 years now!!! I love their products and I found them to be one of the only brands I am not allergic to! I ALWAYS get compliments on how my home smells! My favorite I have been using is White Tea and since the got rid of that I now use Ginger Pomello. It is heavenly! I have the Rose Geranium and Verbena also. So funny because I have so much of this stuff I should open up a store myself LOL!

Good for you for using this stuff it truly is much better for you and those around you to use! I get coupons all the time so be sure to sign up for emails!

Happy Pink Sat!

This is the second Pink Sat post I have read regarding PINK, chemical free cleaners!! I have seen this brand in my supermarket--and I will give it a try!!

I loved your post about eyebrow and lip tweezing! You had some terrific photos--were they done at home or at the salon? What a hoot!!

Happy belated PSat!! Dana
