Our Inspiration

A better way to clean, inspired by a mother of nine.

Our Humble Beginning

Mrs. Meyer’s Clean Day household products were inspired by Mrs. Thelma A. Meyer, an Iowa homemaker and mother of nine. How’d it all get started? One of her daughters was walking down a cleaning aisle, eyeing all the products and couldn’t help but notice the abundance of conventional ingredients and sterile smells. Right then and there, she had a brilliant idea: "Let's make cleaners that smell nice, like a garden, but still work like the dickens on a daily dirt and grime.” It’s no surprise that she named the product line after her very practical mom and rooted it in the common sense values she passed along to her kids.

Mrs. Thelma A. Meyer

Mrs. Thelma A. Meyer is a real person with a real passion for keeping things tidy. She’s 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 inspired by a Midwestern backyard garden and products chock-full of plant-derived and other thoughtfully chosen ingredients, we’re continuously channeling Thelma’s passion for the environment. A mother of nine, she’s no-nonsense, with a sensible approach to living a healthy and balanced life. Ask Thelma and she’ll gladly tell you that cleaning is something that just has to get done, so we might as well make it a little more delightful.
