The History of Mrs. Meyer’s
The origins of Mrs. Meyer’s come from Mrs. Thelma A. Meyer herself. Meyer began as an Iowa homemaker and mother of nine who also had a bit of a green thumb. One day, Meyer’s daughter Monica was walking the supermarket aisles and noticed a need for household cleaning products without harsh chemicals. Monica was suddenly inspired with an idea to “make cleaners that smell nice, like my mom's garden, but still work like the dickens on daily dirt and grime,” and Mrs. Meyer’s began.
