About Gracefully Clean
How Gracefully Clean came to be…
Grace began her housecleaning business in 1985 to have a more flexible schedule while raising her six-year-old son. Without thinking too much about it, she began cleaning with the typical chemical cleaning products available in stores. Over time, she began to feel unwell; suspecting it was the cleaners she used day-in and day-out, she began investigating the harsh chemicals in these products. She was horrified that she had regularly used these in her home and around her child. If these common chemical cleaners had caused detrimental health effects to her as a grown woman, she became concerned about the effect they might have on her child, those of her clients, and family pets as well.
Grace conducted in-depth research into effective, natural, biodegradable ingredients. She tested various formulas over the years to develop the safest and most effective products. Her clients were delighted to have a clean home without the use of harsh chemicals.
With these new, homemade formulas in hand, and when Grace’s children asked to help, she had no qualms about confidently handing them a sprayer and a sponge and teaching them the art of cleaning. Similarly, one time when Grace was cleaning her client’s bathroom, the family dog came in and took a drink from the toilet (so common, right?!). How fortunate for the dog that she was now using products with plant-based and natural ingredients.
This philosophy and practice using natural formulas is actually part of Grace’s heritage. Growing up in Afghanistan and Pakistan, natural living and a reliance on environmental solutions was the norm. With a strong desire to help others through healthy eating and healthy lifestyle, she returned to the U.S. to earn her degree in nutrition. Putting her knowledge to work and constantly evaluating and improving her formulas, Grace is proud to offer these simple, all-natural cleaning products to support our healthy homes.
Gracefully Clean makes sure that a clean house is a safe and healthy house for the whole family.
