Our Inspiration

Mrs. Thelma A. Meyer

Mrs. Thelma A. Meyer is a real person with a real passion for keeping things neat and tidy. She is the inspiration behind Mrs. Meyer's Clean Day-- household cleaners that work like the dickens but smell nice. Thelma, an avid gardener, wouldn't have it any other way.

With scents that are inspired by a midwest backyard garden, and products that are chock-full of plant-derived ingredients and essential oils, we're continuously channeling Thelma's passion for the environment. As a mother of nine, she was no-nonsense, and had a sensible approach to living a healthy and balanced life. It's this balance that we hope to achieve with the products we make. Mrs. Thelma A. Meyer believes in a happy medium between perfectionism and a happy, "lived in" home. Ask Thelma and she'll tell you that cleaning is something that just has to get done, so there's more time to enjoy family and friends. So if you can make cleaning more pleasant, well, why wouldn't you?

Smells like the garden. Cleans like the dickens. Mrs. Thelma A. Meyer
