During lock down, we are going to do a whole lot of these to highlight these businesses – many of which are taking HUGE strain during this time – and shed some awareness and love to all.
So I discovered the most divine household products, and I just had to share! Mother’s Love Products are produced in Cape Town, with love. They come in a range of products – all purpose cleaner, floor cleaner, glass cleaner, dish wash gel and hand sanitizer. And they sell in bulk if you would prefer!
They are non-toxic, and non-allergenic and I have loved using them! They clean so well, and smell divine. I have used the dishwashing gel and the floor cleaner and I was blown away with the efficacy and the beautiful smell – as we are used to that yuk detergent smell so this was a lovely surprise!
Please see their website to shop online! And please follow them on Instagram and Facebook, they would appreciate the love and support. We chatted to the lovely Ina, founder of this beautiful brand and she had this to say to us.
So tell us a little bit about your business?
I’ve always thought if home products were a fairytale, cleaning products would be the ugly step sister of all home products.
It is not like its polished private school counterparts that is pretty enough to be displayed out in the open on our shelves.
I wanted to create a cleaning product for myself that will give me the same feeling that I get from body products – feeling luxurious, spoiling myself and that smells deliciously good.
I wanted to treat myself and treat my home at the same time. And at the same time that is safe to use around humans, pets and plants.
As somebody who suffers from a variety of allergies, I have been using some amazing non-toxic natural cleaning products, but always thought it was lacking something special.
One beautiful December holiday I decided to start to experiment with my own cleaning products. I was having fun concocting it in my kitchen, adding essential oils to my recipes to add that extra special smell and an added layer of cleaning punch.
I loved using it, the smells were uplifting and turned an otherwise boring chore into something special, leaving my home smelling fresh, light and clean.
It was the closest I will ever get to having Disney cartoon characters coming in to magically clean my house. Now wont that be lovely!
The first time I met with my manufacturer, I knew he was the one I wanted to work with, when he warned me that he cannot guarantee the smell of the essential oils will always be exactly the same, because each batch depends on the kind of harvest it was – a dry year’s harvest will produce a slightly different batch from a good year’s harvest. It made me incredibly happy to know that we will be working with the purest ingredients Mother Nature has to offer.
These products remind me of a Mothers Love – tough enough to get the job done, but nurturing at the same time, as is Mother Earth.
I also have the option that people can buy in bulk (it works out MUCH cheaper this way). What is important to understand though about buying in bulk, is that it doesn’t come in pretty containers at all, it comes in 1l, 2l and 5l jerry cans. Therefore, you do have the option of buying the empty pretty bottles with it and then decant it into the pretty bottles.
