Natural Cleaning Products for Your Spring Cleaning – #MurchisonHume, Review and Giveaway from #momsmeet {ENDED}

 

Spring Cleaning is just around the corner and this is the time I coral my cleaning products and make sure I have what I need to get those extra credit jobs done.

When I was invited to review Murchison-Hume I thought this would be a good time to test out some new cleaning products that may end up filling a new void in my cleaning life.

In the last couple of years my little nose has become more sensitive to the cleaning products I regularly use. Not only that but the finishes in my home have their own special needs (Oy Vey!) and that meant a lot of searching and hunting for the right product.
I started dabbling in making my own cleaning products. And while that might work some of the time. Like my sister it gets a little old making your own products for everything you do.

So when Green Moms Meet (love them!) invited me to review Murchison-Hume and generously give away one of their Home Starter Cleaning Kits to one of my readers I thought it was a win win solution.

My nice big box arrived gently on my doorstep one afternoon.

Growing up with me as a mom my daughter was as excited as I was to open the package and behold the lovely cleaning products (picture jumping up and down with hands clasped) nestled inside.

The Murchison-Hume cleaning products arrive in plastic spray bottles reminiscent of old fashioned apothecary bottles. If you're all about glass that won't be pleasing to you but I prefer plastic in my cleaning bottles because I'm known to drop them now and again. They are reusable and you can purchase refills from Murchison-Hume. Also Murchison-Hume supplies their handsoap in reusable glass bottles.

How I Used These Products.

I dug in and used my Murchison-Hume Home Starter Kit right away! In fact I've used nothing but Murchison-Hume since that first box arrived. Yes first.

In fact I like it so much I went back to the site, used the percent off code below and ordered a big bunch of refills. I clean my bathrooms a lot. I also ordered the floor and countertop cleaners. I really like wiping down my kitchen counters at the end of the day with these gentle cleaners. And it makes the whole house smell sweet.

We have a church activity in our home each weekend so I like to give the home a once going over. It takes me about an hour and here's my rundown.

How Did I like Murchinson-Hume

I'm really enjoying cleaning with these products. Some of the ingredients (like the window cleaner) are incredible simple and something I could put together at home BUT I don't have to. I also like the nice light scents (I have both Fig and the Australian Grapefruit).ย  When I'm done cleaning our home smells lightly clean and fresh. It's not overpowering and chemically (is that a word?) and better yet I'm not wheezing while wiping down the shower stall!

I also like that there are little extra tips on the back of each bottle to make sure you use the product either effectively or fully.

For example:

Ladies Bathroom Cleaner: Use throughout the week to freshen your bathroom.ย  A little spritz down the bowl or in the air keeps things smelling sweet.

Glass Cleaner: Use to clean your cell phone and any other reflective surface.

Everyday Furniture & Upholstery Cleaner: Use on hard surfaces too. Banishes odors.

Effortless Floor Cleaner: A little goes a long way so even though this comes in a spray bottle (unless you're getting a refill) dilute before using on your floor.

Spit & Polish Stainless Steel Cleaner: Shake before using and apply to cloth before applying to your appliance.

Counter Safe All Purpose Cleaner: Use to clean often handled spots like light switches, and remotes.

These cute little tips on the back of each bottle helped me to maximize each products use and get the most out of them.

I like Murchison-Hume so much I swapped out all my other cleaning supplies, headed back to the site and purchased some refills in the Fig scent.

By the way right now you can save 20% on any order at Murchison-Hume! Simply enter the code MomsMeet20 at checkout. (Valid through March 31, 2016).

My only gripe is I wish they had a scouring or scrubbing formula for my sinks and bathtubs. I use the bathroom cleaner on tile but I still use another cleaner for the sinks and bathtub.

But before you do….

  1. Wonderful post! There is so much useful and helpful information here. I like learning new ways to maintain my house. I like how you make a plan what to do each day. I have to do such too, because lately it’s very hard to organize my time!

  2. If we’re not too busy we have a routine–we each pick up/clean for 30 minutes a day. When we’re too busy, like now, well, yeah, let’s not talk about that!

  3. I have a daily routine on paper, but we stay so busy that most weeks I end up doing a total house cleaning in one day. Today was that day this week.

  4. I *try* to have some sort of cleaning routines -weekly, but I don’t do a great job of sticking to it. ๐Ÿ˜‰ Would love to try these products!

  5. We’re more “tidiers” than “cleaners.” No set routine here, just picking things up daily and doing a deeper clean when it feels really gross, lol.

  6. Still working on those routines with the help of my dear friend Kemi’s lovely planner! ๐Ÿ™‚

    Mine are more daily-ish. I don’t have a weekly plan. I just see things that are not in the daily plan (like cleaning curtains, vacuuming baseboards and lampshades) and do them.

    This sounds amazing!
