If we’re being honest, Adam is much cleaner than I am. All of his clothes are folded perfectly, his office is always organized, and he’ll reach for the vacuum way more than me. That being said, cleaning up after a recipe shoot is a non-negotiable for both of us. No one wants to see a sink full of dishes for hours, and food can’t just sit out in my “staging area” – especially now that we have a puppy in the house!
So, I’m always looking for cleaning products that have ingredients I can feel good about and WORK really well. Cleaning is way less of a chore when you like the products and they get the job done. Which is why I’m so excited that I discovered Home Made Simple.
What is Home Made Simple?
Home Made Simple has been sharing DIY tips and recipes for 15 years, but you might recognize the name from their very popular and Emmy winning TV series on OWN. The show is all about showing families simple projects, like repurposing household items, easy recipes everyone can enjoy, and generally how to make their house more of a home.
As if that wasn’t enough, they also decided to launch a line of eco-friendly cleaning products to help everyone take care of their homes. The products are made in the USA and up to 95% plant -derived. They don’t contain phosphates, parabens, phthalates, or dyes which is even more important to me now that little Luna is around! Oh, and all of the bottles are 100% recyclable. Yay for the environment!
My favorite products are the Multi-Purpose Cleaner and the Dish Soap. Obviously, Multi-Purpose Cleaner is a staple of every household, and I love that this one has ingredients I can feel good about. It’s perfect for cleaning up my little shooting station to make sure there’s no crumbs or sticky spots lingering for the next time. I also use it to wipe counters, clean doorknobs, and even Luna smudges on the mirror in our living room!
And we obviously all need dish soap! I do a lot of dishes when I’m recipe testing/shooting, so having a soap that works well is key. I’m also such a sucker for lavender, so the scent of these products makes everything smell so dreamy!
And last but not least, Home Made Simple makes laundry detergent and fabric softener! I even used this detergent when Luna peed on her bed and it came out perfectly clean. With a hint of lavender scent! Such a win!
Have you watched the Home Made Simple show before?!
I haven’t, but now that I love these products, I kind of want to! Is anyone else a fan?
