Nice, and realistic post. Thanks!
Because I am a sole operator, I am able to pick and choose what products I use. For me, they just HAVE to smell good. AND at least be safe to use. This is why I use Meyer's Clean Day. Plant based, pricey but you dilute it down a lot so it ends up NOT being expensive. Method has some nice stuff too.
Most of my customers tell me they love how the house smells after I clean.

We like the Meyers and Method products too - we use them and recommend them to our clients. Where possible, we like to use products that are safe and have the least impact on the environment BUT still get the job done!

My only wish is that Meyer's is carried in more stores, and only the same basic fragrances. If you want to try other scents, you have to buy online. The only one I always love using is Basil.

One of big complaints is with certain products, usually Lysol or Chlorox, that have truly obnoxious smells. Gross! Remember Pine Sol? UGH! Reminds me how my grade school bathrooms stunk in the 1950's.

I would say that for indoor air quality a HEPA air purifier would be a good investment. They've come down in price a lot within the last couple years - in my opinion the Levoit HEPA filter models are the best because they remove 99.97% of air pollutants and cost under $100.

FYI: HEPA filters remove 99.97% of airborne particles that are 0.3 microns or larger

Cleaning tips

For green cleaning, I particularly like these 4 products:

1. Alkaline ionized water. I found this Japan-made alkaline water that gets off grease and odor when you spray it on a surface. It is also able to take stains off furniture and clothing. The product is completely water-based.

2. Essential oils. Cleaning products made of essential oils also work. These are biodegradable and chemical-free. Coconut, lemon, orange, and eucalyptus are popular essential oils for cleaning. These are usually mixed with water for cleaning purposes.

3. UV sterilizer. There’s a brand called UV care that has a sterilizer for surfaces, rooms, and baby bottles. The appliance uses UV light (the same light used to sterilize medical tools) to kill viruses, odor, and bacteria in a surface or a space.

4. Air purifier. This is a great adjust to cleaning with natural products at home. Air Honest says air purifiers filter the air and prevent dust buildup, removes odors, and helps get rid of allergens. To get rid of dust mites, air purifiers with HEPA filter are recommended.
Thanks for sharing useful stuff here
