Mrs. Meyer’s Clean Day® Liquid Dish Soap Lemon Verbena — 16 fl oz

You may think you know all the usual places where germs like to hang—the toilet for one, as well as those pesky sponges that are so difficult to disinfect completely. But there’s a fair amount of places the germs like to congregate that may take you by surprise.

I know I was not only surprised, but mortified.

Every story one writes contains an implicit call to action. Some of those calls to actions are easy to ignore, others—not so much. Full disclosure that in writing this story I often had to stop and immediately put into practice some of these tips, such as disinfecting my washing machine by running it through with bleach. Read on to discover some of the germs you have been inadvertently hosting, and be forewarned that you might have to declare war on them before you even finish this article.

Germ Hotspot #1: Washing machines

Although we think of our washing machine as a hotbed of sanitization, it may be contaminating your clothing and linens. Some of this is the rise of using cold or warm water for loads instead of hot, and shorter, eco-conscious washing cycles. For loads with lots of underwear, which can contain approximately 100 million E. coli (and can then cross-contaminate the next load of laundry), it might be prudent to do some loads with hot water—at least once in a while. But sometimes it’s hard to reconcile the urge to germ-bust with the urge to reduce our footprint and I struggle with this issue myself.

Clean it tip: Clean your washing machine with bleach and water without any clothing in it and just let the machine go through its regular cycle. (Doing this as write.)

Germ Hotspot #2: Towels

Towels, which are moist and damp, make for a perfect bacteria breeding ground.

Sharing towels can spread MRSA, a dangerous staph infection that is resistant to many antibiotics. Also alarming: acne-causing bacteria can also be spread among family members from towel sharing.

Clean it tip: Make sure towels air out quickly after each use. If you don’t have a rack or hooks, consider spreading them out over a stand-up or wall-mounted rack. You can also line dry towels in the sun, weather permitting, or put a load of towels in the dryer after everyone has bathed and showered. Finally, every once in a while launder towels in hot water and bleach. If they still smell mildew, may be time to buy some new towels. Don’t forget to include your hand and face towels, which are equally suspect.

Germ Hotspot #3: Oven Knobs

Somehow oven knobs seem relatively innocent of germs, but according to recent research from NSF International, a public health organization, 14 percent of knobs had coliform bacteria, while 27 percent harbored molds and yeasts.

Clean it tip: Weekly or at least monthly, remove the knobs and wash in hot, soapy water.

Germ Hotspot #4: Cutting boards

Researchers at the University of Arizona found that in the average household, cutting boards have 200 times more fecal bacteria that the average toilet seat. Yikes!

The study also showed that 18 percent harbor potentially dangerous coliform bacteria and 14 percent contain molds and yeasts.

Clean it tip: After every use, place boards in the dishwasher or hand-wash with hot soapy water. If your cutting board is very scoured, it may be time to replace. Germs, apparently, just love to nestle in those tiny grooves.

Germ Hotspot #5: Refrigerators

The erroneous assumption regarding fridges is that bacteria won’t grow in cold temps. Not true. A recent study in England found fridge salad drawers, for example, can contain 750 times the level of bacteria considered safe. But scrubbing the inside of your fridge isn’t enough. The University of Arizona study also found that of 160 homes in three US cities, the seal around the fridge tested positive 83 percent of the time for common molds. The mold can spread every time the refrigerator door opens—potentially contaminating the food.

Clean it tip: Do a weekly fridge wipe-down and a once-a-month deep clean where you take everything out, toss any spoiled food, wipe down all surfaces and scrub removable shelves in sudsy hot water. Don’t forget to wipe those fridge seals with a diluted bleach solution or disinfectant too.

Germ Hotspot #6: Computer keyboards

Get ready for it: There are about 200 times more bacteria on a keyboard than a toilet seat—possibly because we never think to disinfect our keyboards.

Clean it tip: Wash your hands, and your desk area, and keyboard, often.

Germ Hotspot #7: Faucets

Since you can’t wash your hands before you turn on your faucet, it’s a logical though painful realization that research found coliform bacteria on nine percent of bathroom faucet handles and that 27 percent had molds and five percent carried staph. In another survey conducted by the Hygiene Council, kitchen faucet handles carried more than 13,000 bacteria per square inch and bathroom faucet handles had more than 6,000 bugs per square inch. This is much higher than other spots in your home.

Clean it tip: Clean faucet handles daily with disinfectant wipes or spray.

Don’t despair after reading about these sneaky germ havens—or become a fundamentalist germaphobe. Simply channel all that angst into spring-cleaning by putting a “I can” attitude into all that spick-and-span. Your house will gleam, and a lot of bacteria will find themselves homeless.

Fact: Fragrances have little to do with how well dish soaps actually clean dishes and everything to do with how much you’ll enjoy your time hunched over the kitchen sink.

To that end, there’s no label doing more for the art of aromatherapeutic dishwashing than Mrs. Meyer’s, our $$ pick for the best dish soap. For nearly two decades, the all-natural brand with a cult-like following has lured grocery shoppers with its brightly labeled bottles and earned their loyalty with an impressive surplus of scent offerings — everything from the familiar (lavender) to the slightly off-kilter (radish).

It’s an embarrassment of riches, quite frankly. And unless you’re like me — a writer who has built a rainbow shrine of bottles on his kitchen counter for this post — the chances are slim that you’ve gotten your hands on all of Mrs. Meyer’s dish soap scents, let alone ventured outside your two go-tos (peony whom?).

That’s why we went ahead and bought nine varieties to find out, once and for all, which scent reigns supreme. As you’ll find out below, my personal preference leans herbal and subtle, rather than floral and bright. Also: I tested all nine dish soaps on my dishes at home, as well as lodged them up my nostrils like a preschooler with a Mr. Sketch marker. Y’know, for science.

#9. Peony

Mrs. Meyer’s just announced plans to make this summertide scent available all year long. And sure, it’s a nice scent if you want to be reduced to tears thinking about the gardens you frolicked through during the spring months of your youth. Less incredible when you’re scraping Kung Pao chicken off your plate and the scents start mingling. It’s a full-bodied floral concoction that would probably make more sense as body fragrance.

#8. Geranium

We all have our own scent associations when it comes to “clean.” Some may say lemon, mint, or garden herbs. True clowns will say flowers — specifically, geranium, the most intense flower variety of the bunch. Sorry, geranium, but you’re grandstanding without any clear reason, not unlike Big Little Lies Season 2.

#7. Bluebell

To be clear: This is not blueberry. Do not make that mistake, or you will be set up for disappointment. Bluebell ranks highest among its floral counterparts because its floral notes are subtle and curious. A right-down-the-middle scent that gets you to lean in for an extra whiff.

#6. Rosemary

Okaaay, take me to Scarborough Fair, Mrs. Meyer’s! This cozy and light scent strikes a nice balance between herbal and floral. (Full disclosure: I’m not crazy about rosemary in food, but here…go off.)

#5. Lavender

You either love or hate this plant. The scent here is unmistakably (if not overwhelmingly) lavender. Proceed with caution if you like your soaps subtle. Or, full speed ahead if you stan.

#4. Honeysuckle

A safe choice for indecisive shoppers who can’t decide on fruity or floral. Its bright and sunny hints make it a primo summer dish soap, which I just decided is a thing.

#3. Radish

Hear us out on this dark horse: Sure, radish is probably not the scent that immediately comes to mind when you think of “clean.” But this earthy potpourri of peppery smells totally works. In fact, it’s one of the more neutral, inoffensive players in the mix.

#2. Lemon verbena

This perennial shrub can do it all: reduce inflammation, aid in digestion, reduce fevers, and — also, it turns out — create a beautiful citrus aroma for dishwashing. It’s just mild enough to win over lemon skeptics.

#1. Basil

Mrs. Meyer’s calls it “uplifting and grounding, familiar and exotic — all at one time,” which somehow rings entirely true. To add to this confusing paradox: The basil scent manages to marry sweet and savory notes to incredibly satisfying effect. Mrs. Meyer’s did that!

Nota bene: For posterity’s sake, seasonal scents like Mint, Mum, and Apple Cider (hm?) were excluded from this ranking. All the scents above are available 365 days of the year.

Mrs. Meyer’s cleaning products are based on a simple, easy-to-follow mantra: keeping things clean is easy, you just need the right soap, and they believe to have created it. We’ve mentioned them before, and recently had the opportunity to put the mantra (and the cleaners) to the test, and they all did quite well. First, though, there are a few things we all should know about the products.All Mrs. Meyer’s liquid products are biodegradable, and do not contain ammonia, chlorine or phosphates. Essential oils are used extensively to create their “uncomplicated products for a clean and happy home” and come in powerful (but not overpowering) scents of lavender, geranium and lemon verbana. Whenever possible, raw materials are obtained from renewable plant resources such as olive, coconut, corn or soy. Mrs. Meyer’s, as a company, is cruelty-free and, therefore, does not test any of their products on animals. Inspired by a real-life Iowa mother, they believe that the mundane, tedious, laborious chore of cleaning should be therapeutic, pleasing to the senses and the results should be enjoyable for both you and other people; what’s bad for dirt should also be good for you. Now, how does this translate in the real world of crud, dust and grime?

We did our best to put a sampling Mrs. Meyer’s products through their paces, and they all performed impressively. We didn’t test every product, though can safely assume that the general cleaning and aromatherapeutic qualities can probably be applied to the entire catalogue of products.

The Counter Top Spray (we tried the lavender scent) does a good job cleaning up grime and junk around the kitchen and bathroom. We let a pasta sauce spill dry overnight, dripped some coffee and “forgot” to clean it up for a couple days, and smeared some toothpaste near the sink in the bathroom and left it to dry; a couple sprays and a quick wipe, and they were all history. It made quick work of spatters around the stove, cleaning oil from an errant saute without smearing and taking out some cooked-on minced garlic that had toasted a deep-brown near the burner, and we noted how it removed old odors as well.

We tried the All-Purpose Cleaner (lemon verbana scent) in as many places as we could find: floors, walls, cabinets, sinks, bathroom, soap-scummed shower walls, and left the whole place pleasingly scented and much cleaner. Thumbs up, and since it’s a concentrate, we’ll be using it for a long time. For the really tough stuff, we pulled out the Surface Scrub (lavender scent) and took it to the tub floor, oven interior, stove top and those little aluminum bowls and rings around the stove burners, and, with a little elbox grease, the mildly-abrasive powder removed stains and shined things right up. We were particularly impressed with the results in the oven and stove; all that baked-on, time-toughened gunk is quite persistent. When we were all done, the Geranium liquid hand soap removed the lingering remains of grime without over-drying; we think it would be a nice addition to a sink in the kitchen or bathroom.

Generally, Mrs. Meyer’s dirt-busters rated well, with good marks for overall cleaning ability and not-too-strong, non-chemical scents. In addition to the products we tested, they also make Laundry detergent, fabric softener, ironing spray, stain remover, unmentionable wash (oh la la) dishwashing liquid, shower cleaner, hand lotion, stainless steel spray, surface wipes, bar soap, and pet products like freshening spray, oatmeal pet shampoo, odor removing carpet cleaner and stain remover. Each package has a nice “Household Hint” about using the product, and even encourages you to recycle it when you’re through. Mrs. Meyer’s products aren’t pretentious or boastful; just efficient, simple, balanced and comfortable ways to make your day a little cleaner.

Updated 7/8/2019

Update: I still use Mrs. Meyer’s laundry detergent and love it. It’s a perfect combination of less-toxic with good cleaning power!

Like many moms, I’ve been swapping out harsh chemicals for “greener” products. I’m not exactly what you’d call an “eco-friendly, green mama,” but I’m slowly working toward all-natural.

That’s why I immediately accepted when I was asked to review Mrs Meyer’s Clean Day products.

Mrs Meyer’s Clean Day household cleaners, soaps, and detergents contain “plant-derived essential oils that are powerful against daily dirt and grime, but leave your home smelling like a garden, not harsh chemicals.” A mom of nine – Mrs Meyers – is the inspiration behind this brand.

Using powerful essential oils, Mrs Meyer’s Clean Day products have a pleasant scent, instead of nasty smelling chemicals. I’m a big fan of essential oils, using them for many household tasks and remedies, so this product line was right up my alley.

I went shopping at my local grocery store and purchased these Mrs Meyer’s Clean Day products:

  • Laundry Detergent in Lemon Verbena
  • Countertop Spray in Lavender
  • Liquid Dish Soap in Lemon Verbena
  • All-Purpose Cleaner in Lemon Verbena

Liquid Dish Soap in Lemon Verbena:

I’ve been wanting to try a new dish soap, so this was great timing. Mrs Meyers’ Liquid Dish Soap worked like a charm. While it didn’t suds up quite as much as the typical name-brand version, I found it cut grease just as well. And that’s my #1 request for a dish soap, so I’m sold! Combined with hot water and a few minutes of soaking, Mrs Meyer’s Liquid Dish Soap cleaned my mixing bowl so well, I didn’t have to scrub at all!

Countertop Spray in Lavender:

Mrs Meyer’s Countertop Spray in Lavender was my favorite scent. I absolutely love the smell of lavender and have used it in everything from calming blemishes to deodorizing smelly laundry. So I was thrilled to find a cleaner with this scent. And it was so pleasant! Instead of harsh smells where I hold my breath, I actually enjoyed cleaning off my counters.

While I prefer a more multi-purposed cleaner (and I will get to that one shortly), I found Mrs Meyer’s Countertop Spray to be quite effective at quickly cleaning my kitchen counters.

All-Purpose Cleaner in Lemon Verbena:

The All-Purpose Cleaner in Lemon Verbena was my favorite product from the group. I love multi-purposed products – it’s much easier to have one general cleaner than 5 different specialty versions. Not only is it cheaper, but it simplifies cleaning too.

Mrs Meyer’s Clean Day All-Purpose Cleaner is concentrated and makes a lot. Just 1/4 cup will make an entire gallon of cleaner, meaning a single bottle of this cleaner will last the average household a long time. For me, I used about 1-2 tablespoons in a regular sized spray bottle.

I’ve been really busy the past month and haven’t had time to tackle cleaning my house, aside from a quick once-over here and there. So there were quite a few grimy areas that were perfect for putting Mrs Meyer’s Clean Day All-Purpose Cleaner to the test. One prime spot was my bottom kitchen cabinets. With my four kids, this area tend to get kicked and have stuff smeared on quite frequently – everything from banana to jelly and who knows what else.

I sprayed the All-Purpose Cleaner on and waited about 3-4 minutes. Most cleaners are more effective when allowed to sit for a few minutes and Mrs Meyer’s is no exception. And I was amazed at how quickly and easily the grime wiped off. In fact, I didn’t have to scrub at all! The cleaner cut right through the nasty grease and grime.

Laundry Detergent in Lemon Verbena

Last, but not least, I put Mrs Meyer’s Clean Day Laundry Detergent to the test. Like the dish soap, I’ve been using a regular name brand detergent but have been wanting to switch to something with less chemicals.

There’s always laundry to do in my house, so it took me no time to round up a load of the kids’ clothes. Luke had practically destroyed a white shirt this past week so I figured it would be a good way to really try out Mrs Meyer’s laundry detergent. I followed the stain treatment tip, which recommended applying a small amount of detergent directly to the area, rubbing it in, and waiting a few minutes, before washing as usual.

Mrs Meyer’s Laundry Detergent is safe for HE machines and is concentrated; one whole bottle will last for 68 loads! And I intend to follow that, because I’ve long since learned that more detergent doesn’t equal cleaner laundry. It seemed to me that using the cap for measuring out the thick, concentrated detergent would be too messy, so I simply eye-balled it and squirted about a tablespoon into my liquid detergent dispenser. This worked quite well and wasn’t messy at all.

The results? Clean! Look at Luke’s shirt!

And the laundry smelled wonderful too, thanks to the gentle lemon verbena scent. I do not use fabric softeners so that was all Mrs Meyers.

I love Mrs Meyer’s Clean Day products. I am definitely making the switch from here on out, especially for the laundry detergent and all-purpose cleaner. Not only do they smell wonderfully, but it’s great knowing they are more gentle around my children.

Try Mrs Meyer’s. Like me, you may find yourself actually enjoying cleaning and doing laundry with Mrs Meyer’s Clean Day products!

A lot of my friends and family are into eating organic food and living a healthy lifestyle. I have noticed when I’ve visited over the years that a lot of them seem to be using Mrs. Meyer’s Clean Day Liquid Hand Soap. You can buy Mrs. Meyer’s Clean Day Liquid Hand Soap in almost any grocery store and it is something I used when I first started reading labels… Mrs. Meyer’s claims that 98% of its ingredients are naturally derived. Hmm. What does that even mean? Does that mean that the ingredients are derived from natural things or that the process of derivation is natural? Let’s look at the actual ingredients.

Yay! Unlike a lot of products, the ingredients for Mrs. Meyer’s soap are readily available on its website. Here is what you can find there.

You may be thinking, “There is no way I can understand what this all means.” Actually you can and let me walk through the process.

I think that it is helpful here to understand how hand soaps are made in general. Let me give you a digest version of the liquid hand soap industry.

There are two types of hand soaps.

Hand Washing Detergents: These hand “soaps” are made with synthetic surfactants often derived either from petroleum or coconut oil. Coconut oil is a step in the right direction! However, keep in mind that surfactants are made in a multi-step derivation process with many other chemicals added along the way.

For example, Sodium Laureth Sulfate (SLES) can be made from coconut oil. First, coconut oil is turned into fatty acids that are used to derive lauryl alcohol. Then lauryl alcohol is treated with sulfur trioxide gas or chlorosulfuric acid to produce Sodium Lauryl Sulfate. And finally, Sodium Lauryl Sulfate is treated with carcinogenic ethylene oxide to make Sodium Laureth Sulfate. This process is called ethoxylation. As a result of the ethoxylation reaction, carcinogenic 1,4-dioxane is produced and can be left in the final product. You won’t find 1,4-dioxane disclosed on the label, because it is not an ingredient but an impurity that does not legally have to be disclosed.

Another example is that Cocamide DEA, a surfactant derived from coconut oil, is a carcinogen. Not all surfactants are known to be harmful but almost all surfactants do not have sufficient health data or environmental data from which we can know if they are safe or harmful.

Saponified Oil Soap: The second type of soap is called saponified oil soap. Saponification is how soap has been made traditionally. It is a one-step process where an alkali is reacted with plant oil. The alkali is called potassium hydroxide (if the soap is liquid) and does not remain in the final product. This liquid hand soap is safe for people and the environment.

So which one is Mrs. Meyer’s Clean Day Liquid Hand Soap?

There are three surfactants in Mrs. Meyer’s Clean Day Liquid Hand Soap, which are

  1. Cocamidopyl Hydroxysultaine
  2. Sodium Methyl 2-Sufolaurate
  3. Disodium 2-Sulfolaurate

Cocamidopyl Hydroxysultaine: For all intents and purposes, there is really only one study about this surfactant. We also do not know much about its derivation. From Wikipedia, we know that it is a mixture of cocamide and lauric acid. And cocamide is present in other surfactants such as cocamide DEA (a carcinogen), cocamide MEA, and cocamidopropyl betaine (a common allergen). The point is that Cocamidopyl Hydroxysultaine has chemical similarities with surfactants that we know are harmful.

Sodium Methyl 2-Sulfolaurate: The Skin Deep database indicates no data on this one. There is virtually no information on it. The EWG’s Guide to Healthy Cleaning rates it C.

Disodium 2-Sulfolaurate: The same story with Disodium 2-Sulfolaurate – no data.

I do not mean to imply that surfactants used in Mrs. Meyer’s Clean Day Liquid Hand Soap are harmful, but in my opinion, synthetic surfactants cannot be considered to be “naturally derived,” especially because that term has no legal definition.

Fragrance in Mrs. Meyer’s Clean Day Liquid Hand Soap

The other ingredients I wanted to talk to you about in Mrs. Meyer’s Clean Day Liquid Hand Soap are fragrance. Fragrance is often a mixture of undisclosed ingredients. So we as consumers can’t even begin to understand its safety because we do not know what is in those mixtures. Generally, fragrance mixtures have been associated with allergies, dermatitis, respiratory distress and potential harms to the reproductive system (source). I am glad to see that most fragrance ingredients in Mrs. Meyer’s Clean Day Liquid Hand Soap are essential oils, which is a much safer way to make a product smell nice. However, if you read carefully, Mrs. Meyer’s states that their fragrance is a “mixture of high-quality essential oils and safe synthetic fragrance ingredients.” Hmm… They tell us it is safe but how do we know? How can we know that they are safe when they do not even name them?

The other ingredients are good. Anyway, while Mrs. Meyer’s Clean Day Liquid Hand Soap is one of the better hand soaps, it might not be as natural as it is claimed to be.
