      Comments about MrsMeyers Basil All Purpose Cleaner:

      Basil All Purpose Cleaner is my go-to cleaning tool. I appreciate that it is more natural, and most certainly, more naturally scented than any other commercial cleaner. I use it for every room in the house: kitchen, bathroom, floors. It is truly multipurpose. Long ago I purchased the counter spray, but there is no need to purchase a separate counter spray if you buy this product. With regular cleaning, my container has lasted probably easily a half a year or more. I put one cap full into an empty spray bottle and dilute the rest of the way with tap water. While the scent is not overly powerful, it does leave a nice lingering faint smell after using. I cannot say this smells just like the basil in the garden, but it is a very nice floral scent. Mrs. Meyers hit the nail on the head with Basil and the All Purpose Cleaner.

        Comments about MrsMeyers Basil All Purpose Cleaner:

        I saw this bottle and saw it was kind of pricey. I thought I would open the bottle and smell it to see what basil smelled like and was hooked. I brought it home and washed kitchen countertops and hardwood floors and made the house smell so clean. Next time I go to the store I will try more Mrs. Meyer's. It was that good.

          Comments about MrsMeyers Basil All Purpose Cleaner:

          This is hands down my favorite cleaning product ever. First, the scent is actually addictive. I've bought other basil scented products from Mrs. Meyers, but this one smells even better, in my opion. Second, I am in no means afraid of chemicals for cleaning, but I think we've gotten way to used to using them where they are just not necessary. I use just a splash of this product in a spray bottle with water to wipe down my kitchen counters, clean tables, dust, clean windows, anything and everything that just needs a quick wipe down and freshen up. I haven't tried it on any particularly tough messes, but I've never found it didn't work where ever I did try it. Also, I use it every day and have only used about half a bottle in the past 2 years. It's well worth the cost.

                Used to like this scent when it first came out and then suddenly started making me nauseous. Don't know why. My oldest daughter likes it, so gave her my almost new bottle of Basil All Purpose Cleaner so she could use it in her apartment. She, too likes Mrs. Meyer's products, thanks to my introducing her to them.
