Pink Saturday - Beverly, at the blog "How Sweet the Sound" hosts Pink Saturday. Let the color pink inspire you.
Some Saturdays, even if it's a weekend, we have to spend some time doing housework. No one loves doing housework, but I have to say, for the first time in my life I have found something that makes doing housework pleasant.
It's Meyer's Clean Day cleaning products. Now, I don't want you to think I'm going in for product endorsements. I know that the company touts its commitment to using natural, plant derived ingredients. I know they make biodegradable products. I know that their products are not animal-tested, and I know that they try to use ingredients that don't aggravate peoples' allergies. All very wonderful.
But you know why I love their products?
Their fragrance is heavenly.
I have been using their Rose Geranium scented dish detergent now for a couple of months, and I have to tell you that if I couldn't care less about anything else, the fact that I get to smell that incredible scent when I clean my frying pan is enough to make me want to spend the extra money it costs to buy Meyer's dish detergent instead of Joy.
As you can see if you click on the link, a 16 ounce bottle of dish detergent costs $3.99. At my local Von's you can get 30 ounces of Joy for $2.99. So at first glance, it might seem foolish to spend so much more on a different product.
But you know what? With the way things are in this world, we all need a little pleasure. And in this economy, if I can get a little extra pleasure out of something for only a couple of bucks - I think it's a pretty good deal.
Rose Geranium dish detergent makes your hands smell just like they do if you pluck a leaf from a scented geranium and rub it between your fingers. In the depths of winter, it brings you a whiff of early summer. It's well worth it.
Meyers has cleaning products for household and for pet clean up. You can get scents like Basil, Lavender, Lemon Verbena, Peppermint, or something called Baby Blossom for their baby products. I love Lemon Verbena, but hands down, my favorite is Rose Geranium. You can get all-purpose cleanser, toilet bowl cleaner, automatic dishwashing liquid, laundry detergent, and even scented candles. It's pink, too. Which makes it even better.
Because why not pay a little more for a simple pleasure that's PINK?
