(Common Good Coriander all-purpose cleaner and hand soap. All images courtesy of Common Good)There's a lot of hand-washing involved in being a parent. Cleaning up random messes and unsightly spills—also a huge part of the equation. (Remember when a daily shower was pretty much all you needed to remain clean?) In my quest for natural household cleaners that are super-effective while also being wonderfully scented, I've found a clear favorite: Common Good.
Parents and former prop stylists Sacha Dunn and Edmund Levine came up with the line in 2010 with a mission to make eco cleaning products using plant- or mineral-based ingredients and 100 percent pure essential oils. This spring, they debuted their latest scent, a clean, zesty coriander in a dish soap, hand soap, glass cleaner, and all-purpose spray. The unique fragrance is a welcome change from the slew of citrus and floral scents on the market. I can't get enough of it—and it's a good thing, because the toddlers in my life remain as untidy as ever. Good on you, Common Good.
