Next to Godliness Multiple Purpose Cedar Wood & Sage Cleaner

“We have some really good ones. Our multi-purpose cleaner has essential oils in it and it can clean just about anything. I use it at home all the time.” — Mario in Texas

“Personally, I’d say the all-purpose cleaner. I use it all the time. I used it in my car yesterday. I used it on the windows in my car. I use it to clean my kitchen and my bathroom. So, yeah, everything.” — Steve in Indiana

“My favorite cleaning product is probably our Cedar Wood & Sage spray. It’s a multipurpose spray. You can use it to clean glass, cabinets, and really all kind of things.” — Hannah in Georgia

“I really like the Cedar Wood & Sage spray because it has a really nice scent, and it’s multi-purpose.” — Jen in South Carolina


Super Amazing Reusable Kitchen Cloth

“I am a big fan of our Super Amazing Kitchen Cloth! I cut the sheets in half just because they’re so large. You can really get even more value just by cutting them to the size you need. They’re like shammies or a Shamwow, if you will. I just cut them in half and use them all around the kitchen or anywhere I need them. I think it’s a great deal. They come in two-packs for around $2.99, depending on where you live.” — Shane in Nevada


Lavender Dryer Bags

“I love the lavender dryer bags. They’re awesome because there’s actually dried lavender in these little packs that you throw into the dryer to make your clothes smell fresh. They’re also really good to keep in your drawers.” — Jen in South Carolina


Dr. Bronner’s Pure-Castile Liquid Soap

“Dr. Bronner’s is great! It’s not actually a Trader Joe’s-branded product, but we do sell it and it works really well to clean almost anything.” — Mike in Oregon


Next To Godliness Automatic Dishwasher Detergent

“We don’t have too huge of a selection as far as cleaning supplies but that just means everything we carry is really high-quality. Specifically, I’d say the dishwasher packs sell really well and they’re easy to us.” — Erin in Idaho
