Mighty Fix February 2018 Review
Each Mighty Fix box includes an info card telling you about the featured item and how what they chose to send you helps your house be “greener,” and you be “healthier”! This month’s featured items are Meliora Cleaning Products – all-purpose home cleaner refill and a reusable glass bottle with pre-loaded cleaner. The back of the card always has a DIY recipe associated with the monthly product. Meliora (meh-lee-OR-ah) is Latin for “better.”
All-Purpose Home Cleaner, 16 oz. – Retail Value $7.99
This 16 oz. reusable glass spray bottle came with one tablespoon cleaner pre-loaded in the glass container. The nozzle has two settings stream, and spray. I added 16 ounces of warm water, which dissolves the flakes faster than cold water. I closed the spray bottle and vigorously shook the flakes and the water till it dissolved. The bottle was slightly heavy after adding water, but I quickly adjusted to the weight. The nozzle settings produced a steady flow of the product which covered a medium-sized area. If I go a couple of weeks without using, the soap solution may separate, it’s advised to shake the contents. Also, after adding water, use within six months.
This all-purpose cleaner is unscented and contains no preservatives, fragrance, or dye. The all-purpose cleaner intends to clean any hard surfaces in my home such as countertops, cabinets, or sink. The soap flakes are versatile and there are a variety of DIY recipes found here and here. I received the cleaner in travel size (0.5 ounces) that provides for two bottles. Their website also carries a 4-ounce canister good for eighteen bottles of the all-purpose cleaner.
The all-purpose cleaner is vegetable soap flakes made of sodium cocoate, glycerin, organic cocos nucifera, (coconut) oil, and water. I sprayed my kitchen counters, cabinets, and toilet with the all-purpose cleaner, and it rid my counter top, cabinets, and toilet of grime and dirt. It was refreshing not having the harsh chemical smell and being able to get my home clean with friendly ingredients. I quickly threw out my cleanser I had and replaced it with this month’s product.
From Meliora Cleaning Products:
Coconut Oil is the base vegetable oil used for our soap. Using only coconut oil results in a long-lasting, hard bar that is great for cleaning.
Sodium Cocoate: This is the chemical name of saponified (that is, ‘made into soap’) coconut oil. It’s the chemical that grabs onto both dirt and water to do the cleaning.
Glycerin: This substance is chemically a type of alcohol and is naturally created when the oil is converted into soap. Glycerin is known for skin-softening abilities and is an effective solvent, meaning it can dissolve substances such as stains and dirt.
Organic Cocos Nucifera (Coconut) Oil: There is a small amount of coconut oil left in the soap after conversion to sodium cocoate. This is because we use sodium hydroxide, or lye, in the conversion process and leaving excess oil ensures there is no remaining lye in the finished product. Some soapmakers refer to this as ‘superfatting’ and more oil remaining results in a softer, more moisturizing bar. Our coconut soap bars have only a small amount of excess oil, so they are not the luxurious body bar type and more of a ‘get the job done’ bar.
Water: Water is used in the soapmaking process as a substance that dissolves lye and then is a medium so the lye can reach all of the oil to react. After being used in this process, the water is allowed to evaporate from the soap over a period of several weeks, and the resulting dried bar has very little water. There is only about 5% water remaining in the finished bars, thus making them more shelf stable than a liquid soap that would require a preservative due to the high (about 60%) water.
Verdict: This was a useful Mighty Fix and I enjoyed cleaning my home with this non-toxic cleaner. I appreciate having a refill of the cleaner, that was smart to do. It’s amazing how I just went along with using harsh chemicals even the ones that were supposed to be non-toxic was not 100%, and I never took the time to investigate which brands were truly non-toxic. This subscription is the best at delivering eco-friendly, non-toxic, sustainable products to your home without the hassle of doing your investigating. They’re the best! This subscription always sends quality products that are above the cost of the subscription except for this month. It delivers on sending healthier alternatives for my home and personal use. This subscription doesn’t send the same item each month to everyone that subscribes, so keep in mind that if you choose to subscribe your item may be different from what I received. Also, readers have mentioned in previous reviews that they already received a product I was reviewing.
