All Purpose Cleaner & Concentrate

By :AM CLEANING YYC | Made in Calgary

Maybe cleaning isn’t your idea of a good time, but there’s something strangely cathartic and luxurious about doing so with the :AM CLEANING YYC All Purpose Cleaner and Concentrate. Owner Mariya Podeyko even considers it an act of self-care. Free from toxins and artificial fragrance, these plant-based, biodegradable, pet- and child-safe cleaning products are infused with orange, peppermint and eucalyptus essential oils, leaving behind a light scent that doesn’t require you to crack a window. The packaging is pleasing to the eye, promoting countertop storage to inspire consistent usage. After using this homemade product as part of her cleaning business, Podeyko was bombarded with customer requests to sell her secret solution in the retail market. With this new momentum, Podeyko — a Ukrainian immigrant — hopes to expand her team and employ other Ukrainian women who have lost their homes and sought refuge in Canada.
