It was a hot summer day in the middle of August in Arizona. My husband had received a new job and I was leaving my beloved Arizona, the place where I grew up and knew so well….to go to a new home, a new town, and a new state. We drove two oversized moving trucks for 17 hours straight to our new home in Texas! The trucks were full to the brim with everything we owned. We were beyond exhausted. We pulled up in the middle of the night to a house I had never seen.
We were able to sleep on the floor for a few hours before the sunlight started to peek through the windows. As I looked around my new house, it needed some serious TLC. It needed to be cleaned and made into our home.
People started to arrive and help us unload the massive moving trucks and before long, our house was filled with brown cardboard boxes. I was overwhelmed! Just then my cousin, Michelle, who had moved to Texas a few years prior, arrived bearing a large welcome basket. It was filled with cleaning supplies and some chocolate to help me get through the day!
I pulled out all of these wonderful Mrs. Meyer’s® Brand products and started smelling them. They didn’t smell like typical cleaning products — they smelled fresh. My cousin walked into the house and realized that it needed some work! She and I worked together, using bottles of the Mrs. Meyer’s® Brand Lemon Verbena spray, to clean the kitchen, the walls, the bathrooms. My entire house smelled so beautiful and looked so clean! Whenever I smell the Mrs. Meyer’s® Brand Lemon Verbena spray, it always takes me back to the time when someone special brought me over a timely welcome home housewarming basket that lifted my spirits and made my house feel like a home.
Since my cousin made such a meaningful impact on me by doing such a simple act, I am trying to do the same for my own friends by delivering the perfect housewarming basket. This welcome home basket is filled with Mrs. Meyer’s® Brand Lemon Verbena Multi-Surface Everyday Cleaner, Mrs. Meyer’s® Brand Dish Soap, striped dish towels, colorful sponges, fresh lemons, and a lemon tablecloth. It is the perfect thing to bring to friends or family when they move into a new home.
I am always making messes in my kitchen and the only cleaner I use is my Mrs. Meyer’s® Brand Lemon Verbena multi-purpose everyday cleaner. It is a naturally fresh spray made with essential oils and plant-derived ingredients. The spray has a special vegetable protein extract and is perfect for removing odors around the home. It’s ideal for counters, floors, walls, and bathroom fixtures. It makes me home smell so fresh and clean!
The Mrs. Meyer’s® Brand dish soap makes grease disappear like nobody’s business. It is a highly concentrated formal and includes soap bark extract, which is from the garden and one of nature’s best degreasers. I create a lot of dirty dishes and this easily cleans them!
I find my favorite Mrs. Meyer’s® Brand products in the cleaning supplies section of my local Fry’s store. You can find out more information here — Mrs. Meyer’s® Brand Products
I am positive that your friends and family will love and appreciate this housewarming gift that will make their house smell lovely, fresh, and clean. Happy cleaning, my friends! xo
