^The face we got for asking him not to chew on the sponge!^

After yesterday’s big reveal/announcement, I thought today would be the perfect day to share a new website I’ve found and have been using for household cleaning / beauty / personal care products [you’ll see why once I do all of my explaining, LOL!🙈]. First of all, I initially discovered this company, Grove Collaborative, via Casey Holmes’ YouTube channel. Casey covers mostly beauty tutorials, I’ve actually followed her since 2013 because she has texture on her skin and does a really good job of caring for it and also covering it up so I’ve been a loyal follower and never missed a video! Anyway, she recently did some VLOGs/videos talking about Grove and I honestly, my first thought was, “hmm, she’s talking about household cleaning products?!” but then as she continued mentioning random finds [+free products!] from Grove I looked into it.

Turns out, Grove Collaborative is a “recurring shipment service that delivers all-natural home, beauty, and personal care products” to your door – and then based off of what you order they help personalize your order. Still following?!?! Haha, I feel like this is going to be a looooong post, oops! But one of the reasons I wanted to share is because I’ve become OBSESSED with this site. First of all, being pregnant with baby Gemma #2☺️ & having an 18mo old around calls for using safer, natural products. AKA. No harsh chemicals for either Luke nor the sweet baby growing inside of me. Additionally, we travel SO often and now that it is cold we are more susceptible to sickness so I’m literally always working to keep everything as clean as possible!

I know many of you are also mamas, home-keepers, as well, but a lot of you who aren’t moms may honestly be interested in this post because I placed a MASSIVE order and there are so many random things I got [some free in fact!] that are super handy even if you aren’t into mommin’ OR cleaning, lol! I always feel bad because I don’t ever want to bore anyone but once I got super into this website and finding new products I was like SO excited to share more information!! ☺️

First of all, Grove has everything from cleaning products, to laundry products, to men’s personal care, to baby products, to women’s personal care, etc! Also, there’s no fee to use this, just FYI. When I first signed up, I checked immediately if there was a fee or some type of catch and there is not! Also, shipping is always $2.99 – which is amazing since I spent over $100+ and got EVERYTHING you see in the photos [+ some]. If you are super into this and it’s a fit, you can actually pay a $19.99 fee for a year and you get free shipping, free products, and so much more [here’s a chart on that!]. New customers also get a FREE holiday set [Mrs. Meyer’s hand soap, dish soap, multi-surface spray, Grove Collaborative red caddy + scrubber sponges] when you place your first order of $20, PLUS if you spend $39, you’ll also receive a free Grove stoneware tray to beautifully display you rnew holiday soaps! If you’re already a subscriber, you’ll get a free set of Grove walnut scrubbers! WIN! WIN! Sorry I am talking so much, I just wanted to quickly address a few concerns I had before I jump into what I love and why! ❤️

Okay, moving on to what I love.. I’ll try to be short & sweet!

PRODUCTS THAT I LOVE FROM GROVE & WHY

CLEANING

Dish Brush

Glass / Surface Spray [OBSESSED!!! Smells like peppermint & I am seriously obsessed + It is a 2 in 1 which is amazing!]

All Purpose Counter Spray [I’ve used this a bit but I really love the scent of ^ one so I do tend to use it more than this – but only because I love the mint smell.]

Disinfectant Spray [I should have purchased more of this because we are going through this so quickly lately.]

All Purpose Cleaning Concentrate PLUS Glass Spray Bottle [Just FYI if you are trying to be more conscious about helping the environment this is a brilliant way to help out. You pour the concentrate into the bottle and add water-  that way you are not constantly wasting plastic products.]

Microfiber Cloths [we swear by these in this house!]

BATH TIME FAVES

EPSOM Salt [I love the ‘Sleep’ one – I have used it in my nightly bath religiously and it smells and feels amazing.]

Calming Shampoo and Bubble Bath/Wash [I mainly just use this as a bubble bath – I love how it makes my skin feel.]

Shower Spray [We use this in the tub and in the shower just to keep it nice and clean!]

LAUNDRY

WOOL DRYER BALLS + PEPPERMINT OIL [Okay, this is HUGE! I already use dryer balls religiously but adding a drop of their peppermint oil makes your clothing/laundry smell amazing! I used it for the first time while doing our bedding and they came out smelling of peppermint- nothing strong or crazy – but it is just refreshing! You can also buy this all separately – you don’t have to buy the exact oil or anything.]

Natural Stain Remover Spray [LOL, we go through stain removal products like crazy so I love having this on hand. Looking at your Fitzy & Luke Bear!👀]

MISC

Caldrea Hand Soap

Hand Sanitizer Gel

WATER WIPES [I SWEAR BY THESE! I use these in my car, to clean designer handbags, to wipe random things down, etc. I leave a pack of these in different rooms in the house for different reasons. I highly recommend these if you are crazy about keeping your car clean but don’t want to damage anything or if you have handbags you want to care for better!]

Leather Cleaner and Conditioner [I got this on a whim just to see how it worked and I really love it – I actually use it for more than just furniture however. It is good for other products too. Always make sure you test a spot first thought!

Thanks to Grove Collaborative for sponsoring todays post.
