Having a sick baby is truly the worst thing ever. Having a sick baby every other week is just down right unbearable. That was the case with Beckett when she was in daycare. For whatever reason (and I certainly don’t fault the daycare), our child picked up every single illness that went around at her daycare. She had colds every other week, stomach bugs, the flu twice and after about 4 months, Joe and I had enough and pulled her out of daycare. Knock on wood, she hasn’t been sick since, but that experience turned Joe and I into complete clean freaks.
Prior to having Beckett, I would never classify Joe nor me as a clean freak. The house was always nice and tidy, but we weren’t steam cleaning our floors every other day, and wiping every surface with cleaner, multiple times a day. Even after having Beckett, I swore I wouldn’t turn into a clean freak, cleaning frantically and constantly. Not that there is anything wrong with the mothers who do that. Trust me, I am an avid supporter of all moms doing what they think is best for their children. I just didn’t want to reinvent the wheel with parenting and I wanted to keep on, keeping on – ya know? But after seeing our child sick dozens of times, I turned into a crazy person and now Joe and I clean non-stop.
And frankly the one pitfall to cleaning constantly is the smell. Ugh! I can’t stand the smell of harsh cleaning chemicals in my house. I am very sensitive to smells (poor Joe – every time he buys a new candle or air freshener I make him get rid of it because my nose cannot handle certain scents!), so it’s important to find a great smelling cleaning product, that isn’t full of harsh chemicals, but also actually cleans.
Enter in Grove Collaborative. I remember reading about this company because of my obsession with Lauren Conrad (but seriously, who isn’t obsessed with her?!). I remember thinking – what a brilliant idea! I mean, the only time I ever walk down the cleaning aisle of any store is because I ran out of what I was already using at home. The beauty of Grove is that their recurring shipments are flexible, all products are natural and its super affordable.
So I gave them a try and they shipped me a set of Mrs. Meyers brand hand soap, dish soap, hand lotion and multi-surface spray in scent Geranium and I’ve been hooked ever since. It’s the most lovely floral scent (not too strong, but strong enough that your house smells of fresh flowers – one scent my nose will never be upset about!).
Now through March 18th they are offering you guys a Mrs. Meyers collection of hand soap, dish soap, multi-surface spray (in any of the 3 limited edition scents: Peony, Lilac and Mint), plus the cutest kitchen towel (we have 2 in our house and we love them!), free shipping and a VIP trial with any $20 purchase. When I first signed up, I was able to easily hit the $20 dollar minimum with things I already needed, like toilet paper, beauty supplies, baby stuff, etc. ANNNNDDD you guys, I just received my Peony collection in the mail and it smells even better than I could have imagined!
So don’t wait — Mrs. Meyer’s mint, peony, and lilac are limited-edition scents, and these kits always go fast! Here’s how to get yours:
