Loading ....


Some of you have requested I film this video, so here it is! I didn’t expect to ramble as long as I did, but I guess I really really like cleaning products! So, I like to feature and use less HARSH chemicals in my home, so I do not currently use any products containing chlorine bleach. So, here are SOME of my favorite cleaning products that I wanted to tell you about! I LOVE to clean, so I have many more magic in my kit to show you some other time! I hope you enjoy the video!

  1. Be careful using tea tree oil around puppy. I think it can be toxic to dogs. Probably in large amounts, but I wouldnโ€™t try to clean dog toys or dishes with tea tree oil or tea tree oil added to the cleaner. Someone claimed ( but might be a coincidence) that tea tree oil in their diffuser made their dog sick ( small dog). But ingesting tea tree oil ( like licking toys that have been cleaned with it) is not good for dogs.

    1. Thank you for mentioning essential oils around pets. I’d like to add that you should never use any essential oils around birds or small rodents. It can be a deadly situation for them.

  2. Thank You for doing this video, I use all of these in my cleaning as well, they all work great! I buy a separate spray head and put it right on the Hydrogen Peroxide bottle. I am allergic to bleach, so I never have bleach in my house.

  3. Yes to more music/opera/ singing content!๐Ÿ˜Š๐Ÿ˜Š

  4. Thank you so much for being scientifically accurate when talking about chemicals! Irks me so much when people talk about things being full of chemicals and therefore bad. All things are made of chemicals!

    1. Yay! Yes…one of my biggest pet peeves as a lover of all things science

  5. The Mrs Meyers lemon verbena scent is my favorite, but Iโ€™m interested in trying the rosemary scent.

    1. Try it! It’s spicy and delicious!

  6. Thank you for making a distinction between “chemicals” and “harsh chemicals”. It’s so easy for people to be misled by the colloquial term, it’s a huge disservice to science.

    I use a vinegar and water mixture to clean nearly everything, but I also use bleach on things from time to time. Sometimes simple things like vinegar clean better and are cheaper than an equivalent cleaner. I pay more attention to eco-friendly packaging than ingredients.

    1. @The Organized Soprano I’d really like to see videos on the nerdy side of cleaning. Like discussing the chemistry behind why, say vinegar, works the way it does. That’d be really cool and I think it’d help people make better choices for their homes and families.

    2. Youโ€™re welcome! The term chemical is so much more than people tend to imagine

  7. My Favorite cleaning products are, Dawn Dish Soap, Baking Soda, Vinegar, I just need to learn more about Hydrogen Peroxide, but these are my go to and staples!

  8. I love the Iowa Pine scent…I will be stocking up come Christmas time! Love you videos! Thank you so much for making them!

  9. This was very informative. Currently, I confess I have very harsh chemicals for cleaning. But, as soon as I’m done using them up. I will start my Cleaning Arsenal with a majority of the products you mentioned here. I have suffered with eczema from using harsh chemicals along with latex gloves. So, it will be a Very Nice Change to start using more natural types of cleaning products. Hugs to you and the Bean. Will let you know how my newer way of cleaning works out.

  10. Great video! I’m curious about the clean and then disinfect. Is that because there’s no point in disinfecting the grime being taken away so less disinfectant can be used just on the surface? Wondering why it’s better than combining the products.

    I like that you gave the cheap and expensive options. Sometimes it’s nice to get the fancy version to give ourselves the feeling that cleaning is somehow part of a lux lifestyle ๐Ÿ™‚ Getting a nice bottle and some essential oils to have that feeling more economically is a great idea too

    1. Thank you! The clean vs disinfect thing is a good subject for a video ๐Ÿ˜‰

  11. I just tried the Mrs Meyers bathroom cleaner . It’s the first cleaner I’ve used that I didn’t have to open the windows and take a shower immediately afterward. Thank you very much.

  12. As always, I love your videos.
    Iโ€™m looking for a recommendation for cleaning tile floors. Do you have a suggestion? TY ๐Ÿ˜Š

    1. Bona makes awesome hardwood and tile cleaner as well!

  13. Thank you for this INSPIRING video, your right about Chlorine, my mom Used this a lot for cleaning, and She got sick from her Lungs!

  14. Get yourself a mesh laundry garment bag and you’ll never hand wash sweaters again. I put my even most delicate items in those bags and toss them in the wash (I still use the gentle cycle) and I have never have a problem.

    1. Iโ€™ll try that!

  15. Very informative, thank you๐Ÿ’•

  16. which essential oils and what brand do you use that is safe for pets. I have 3 dogs

    1. The Organized Soprano Thanks Kay I appreciate you getting back to me โค๏ธ

    2. I use Aura Cacia and avoid any of the “hot” oils (cinnamon, clove, garlic) but talk to your veterinarian above anyone! They will know best!

  17. I didn’t know Bon Ami was still around. It was called Jet Bon Ami back in my day. My mom used it for everything. I am a great fan of Mrs Meyers too. Basil is my favorite scent. I get all from Grove Collaborative. Seventh Generation has non-chlorine bleach, if your tired of spending alot of money. I have so many microfiber cloths, I could open my own store. I love using them with my Swiffer. That way i don’t have to buy the Swiffer refills every month. Thanks for your tips.

  18. My favorite by far are the ecloths for kitchen, stove and dusting. They work wonders! I also was in love with barkeepers for my tub, but will try the bon AMI thanks for explaining the difference. The other thing I do is pour baking soda in a pot add a little water let sit and any burnt on stuff comes right out. Great video!!!

    1. Ooh! nice tip on the baking soda pot soak! I’m gonna try it!! Thank you!

  19. I love your science behind your products!! One thing I thought I might share, I noticed your candle, and wanted to share that candles release formaldehyde into the air to breathe, so you should never burn it for more than 2 hours at a time, but other methods of smell goods are better for you all together.

  20. I totally stocked up on Mrs. Meyers Iowa Pine! I think I have enough to last till summer! As far as Iโ€™m concerned, itโ€™s not a Christmas scent, but an Oregon pine forest fragrance which is great all year round.

    1. The Organized Soprano 16 bottles. Iโ€™m obsessed!

    2. I’m so jealous! Mine’s about to run out!!!

  21. Great video, I use a few of these products too, Bon Ami Cleanser is great, love Mrs. Myers too, I did get the Iowa Pine, and love the other scents. Thank you for sharing all this information. Will look into Freshwave Laundry Additive.

  22. I am new to your videos.ย  This one was super interesting!ย  And, I would love to hear you sing๐Ÿ˜Š

    1. Yay! Thanks so much for watching! More music stuff coming soon ๐Ÿ™‚

  23. Mrs. Meyers Honeysuckle is life.

  24. Omgosh I love your videos!!! Girl Iโ€™m hooked!

    1. Hub Neat Home awww girl youโ€™re hilarious! Expect a binge watching party for the upcoming weeks ๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿคฃ๐Ÿ˜˜

    2. Yay!!!! OMG, Iโ€™m TOTALLY subscribed to you and have been for years BTW! I love YOUR channel!!!!! ๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿ˜‰

  25. I just started using an e-cloth (water only microfiber) & LOVE it! I’d be so interested to hear about the science behind it & other cleaning products!

    1. Microfiber cleaning is LIFE! I am full on addicted!

  26. I just found your channel I am looking forward to seeing more helpful information

    1. Yay!

  27. I use everything mentioned! YouTube recommended your channel! Just subbed.:)

    1. Yay! Thank you for subscribing!!!

  28. What do you use to clean the outside of kitchen cabinets? Mine get a greasy film after I’ve fried something only a couple times. Thanks for sharing!

    1. I’ve had pretty good results with just water and a microfiber cloth, but I do it fairly often. I’m always surprised at how much stuff gets on there all the way from the stovetop!

  29. My favorite combo to clean the toilet bowl, bathroom sink , shower walls , shower doors , bathtub is 50/50 vinegar and dawn . Removes all the hard water without harsh chemicals

  30. Great tips Kay! Hydrogen peroxide is excellent for removing pet stains. If my cat throws up I clean up the mess and then pour undiluted hydrogen peroxide directly on the stain and blot it up with paper towels. I leave it to air dry and the stain disappears and it doesn’t discolor my carpet at all. I’ve been doing this for over 15 years in several different homes. It doesn’t seem to work on other stains, just “organic” stains…what I might also refer to as protein-based stains and plat-based stains.

    1. Kitty hairballs are one thing I do not miss about being a kitty mom! OY! LOL

  31. I love Dr. Bronnerโ€™s and Mrs. Meyers products! I use Woolite for delicate and wool hand washing. Itโ€™s cheaper than many others and more importantly, gets the job done!

  32. Health Science graduate here, I was literally screaming yes to every point to what you were saying. Organic chem and microbio were my fav subjects, so everything that was said I was like YAS GRL!!!!!!! Thank you so much for uploading this video!!!!!!!!

    1. OMG, I LOVED Organic Chem!!! I get to draw pictures and no math? SIGN ME UP LOL

  33. Mrs Meyers love their products:) I’m probably going to buy some new microfiber cloths. Where is a good place to buy good quality not expensive? Love ur channel

    1. Auto parts stores are excellent places to buy them and they are a bit bigger in size usually. I use them for kitchen wash cloths as well as cleaning.

    2. Bingo! I just got a couple of Microfiber cloths at Marshall’s from Casabella that are AMAZING! They are fuchsia colored and such great quality!

    3. jewelz white Home Depot carries a pack of blue microfiber cloths, which do the job quite well. Also, Marshalls, TJ Maxx, and Home Goods tend to have a nice selection as well.

  34. bon ami is the least abrasive yet cuts grease from any hard surface or dish or pan, use it dry to polish aluminum sink and then rinse. I don’t know why it works better it just does. mom was born in 1914 her mother used before mom was born. weirddddd

  35. baking soda absorbs odors from carpet and fridge. 1/2 c baking soda down sink drain followed by 1 c boiling white vinegar deodorizes and cuts the ick in the drains. sprinkle on mattress after u vacuum as dust mites don’t survive as well as deodorizes the mattress. small bowl of vinegar in corner of room deodorizes room (used to remove smoke smell left in a room 4 decades ago) Clorox 1 tbsp. in quart of water w blue Dawn for stained countertops or any hard surface. Our pest man told me to use this mixture as I am allergic to the pest spray. Due to illness I use Clorox to disinfect every hard surface and washing white clothes. I get a cough 48 hr later in hospital. ICKKKK I think everything has pros and cons yet if used in the smallest amount possible to reach the goal u r okay unless allergic.

  36. I understand how you feel, about feeling bougie and wanted to spend on the fancy stuff.

    1. Right? Sometimes, I just feel Spendy LOL

  37. ๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿ˜ goingto check out your ideas. Thank you for sharing. Have a warm and safe weekend.

  38. Have you tried Grove Collaborative Yet? We love some of the same products wow! I did a haul if you like my content can you sub back?

  39. HI, Kate, just wanted to share a home remedy for clogged toilets that works for me. Pour1-1 1/2 cups dish detergent (i perfer Dawn since it’s concentrated) in toilet, 1 cup vinegar (any type), & 1 cup baking soda.. Leave alone with lid closed for as long as possible. After enough time has passed, pour hot buckets of water slowly. When you see the hot water is flushing through you can use toilet handle to flush. This has always worked for me. Take care & thanks for sharing your tips.

  40. You said you love microfiber clothes, just saying check out Maker’s microfiber clothes. You can get them online they are absolutely amaizing and the maker of them is also a you tuber. Melissa Maker from clean my space.she also has microfiber dish towels

    1. Crystal Mcmurray, I love my Maker’s cloths!

    2. Hub Neat Home i really love her cloths she was the first youtuber i ever watched then you but i love watching both of your videos.

    3. I actually know Melissa, and I NEED to try the cloths! I will order soon! She is a very nice lady ๐Ÿ™‚
