I’ve been using Meyer’s Clean Day Multi-Surface Concentrate (Lemon Verbena scent) for over 5 years. In my opinion, it is the BEST multi-surface cleaner out there.

Why? First, it doesn’t come with all the chemicals most cleaners use and it still gets the job done beautifully. It’s ingredients are at least 98% naturally derived and are free of: Parabens, Phthalates, Glycol Solvents, Chlorine, Formaldehyde, and Artificial Colors. It is full of: Plant Derived Ingredients, Natural Essential Oils, Birch Bark Extract and the most important ingredient of all, tap water.

Which leads me to: Second, it’s really cheap. $7.99 sounds expensive for a cleaner until you read “concentrate.” One quarter cup of the concentrate makes a full gallon of cleaner when mixed with water. All I do is keep a mixed-solution gallon jug under the sink (Arizona Ice Tea jugs are the best) and regularly fill up a spare spray bottle (the Zep spray bottle is a solid performer).

Third, it safely and effectively cleans floors, counters, and surfaces in bathrooms, kitchens or any room both inside and outside. This is an important point — I always thought cleaners had to have extreme amounts of chemicals to do the job. I was wrong — Meyer’s allows the water to do the cleaning while providing a clean (and safe) scent around the kitchen. It does a great job cutting the grease on the stove, cleaning the counters, and using it all around the house and car. Finally, it lasts and lasts and lasts.

Every time I fill up my spray bottle, I think of the 2-3 dollars I spent on commercial brands. This 32 ounce bottle has paid for itself many, many times over. If you don’t like Lemon Verbena, Meyer’s Clean Day Multi-Surface Concentrate comes in a number of great scents — Basil, Lavender, Geranium, Sunflower, Rosemary, Bluebell, Honeysuckle, and Red Clover. My bottle is almost empty, maybe I’ll switch to another fragrance.
