How are you cleaning house these days? As in, your actual, physical home? With our whole family generally spending so much more time together inside our apartment, it feels like we’re cleaning just about constantly. Add to that a newly crawling baby with an interest in putting every single thing into her mouth and, well, it’s an endless cycle of slobber and swipe around here. Recently we’ve been using this genius all-purpose household spray from Meliora by way of MightyNest.
More about what makes the cleaning spray so great in a moment, but first a refresher on MightyNest. They’ve been in the business of getting customers acquainted with eco-friendly and sustainable household essentials for more than a decade. Every month, members of their MightyFix subscription are introduced to a new tried and tested product—anything from a zero-waste dish soap to fan-favorite reusable produce bags—and given free shipping and steep discounts on whatever other goods they need to re-up for their households, from laundry and cleaning supplies to personal care and pantry items. If you’re thinking this sounds like a really great indie alternative to other one-stop shopping sites, you’re right!
This fall, I’m partnering with new MightyFix subscribers to get them set up with this first fix—the Meliora All-Purpose Home Cleaner plus a box of three refills, for just $3. MightyFix subscriptions always ship free and you can add anything else to your order and that will ship free, too! After receiving your first fix, you now also have the chance to select future fixes according to your needs. All new members have member profiles where you can share what solutions you have and what sustainable swaps you’ve already made so nothing comes to your door that you can’t use or that you don’t want!
As for the spray itself, I’ve been pitched on many of these kinds of refill products, and I feel like I can say with a modicum of authority that the Meliora All-Purpose Cleaning Spray is one of the most efficient and low-waste refill options I’ve used. To get started, all you need to do is pop the non-toxic, palm-oil free soap tablet into the glass spray bottle, fill it up with water, and shake. The tablet dissolves quickly into the water and you’re left with an entire bottle of cleaning solution that’s safe for the whole family and doesn’t require you to use any single-use plastic at all. When you’re down to the last drop, just add another tablet to the same glass bottle and you’re ready to begin again, still single-use-plastic free.
Whenever I write about cleaning (which is fairly often enough being someone with a blog and a rather fastidious side) I’m reminded of the Carol Channing bit from Marlo Thomas’s Free to Be You and Me. If you were a child in the 80s maybe you know the one. About housework and the smiling lady cleaning on TV? I used to lay on the carpet in our living room and listen to the record over and over again which is to say that yes, absolutely, this is an advertisement for a cleaning product, and yes I’m being paid to write it. You don’t have to smile while you use it, but to be totally sincere, it’s kind of hard not to while watching the bubble-gum sized refill transform into a whole bottle of cleaner with the shake of a bottle.
Indeed, the whole MightyFix model is to take something that feels daunting and make it feel legitimately doable and yes, even fun. Every month a fix arrives to your doorstep with a cheerful note explaining the particulars of the product at hand and how that product fits into the larger project of living more sustainably at home. I’ve said before that I love the generosity of spirit inherent in the MightyFix. It feels like finding sustainable solutions under the gentle guidance of an encouraging and trusted friend and if you’re someone already well-versed in the world of sustainable household goods, you can gift a few months of the service to someone you love who might just need a little extra encouragement.
