There’s something about the smells of fall that make this season so distinguishable. Burning leaves. Hot apple cider. Pumpkin pie. One whiff and your nose knows…it’s fall!
That’s why I was super excited to find out that my favorite hand soap from Mrs. Meyer’s had come out with a brand new line of fall-scented soaps this year! The 2 featured scents, Apple Cider and Mum, are so pleasant you’re gonna be going all “Molly Shannon” on smelling your hands! 🙂 They really do smell that good!
I placed a recent online order through Grove Collaborative – formerly EPantry – and was so excited to get to try out these hand soaps in both my kitchen and my bathroom this fall. You can read all about why I love using this company and their eco-friendly products in a post I wrote back in March here.
But first, I want to share with you a cute little DIY up-cycled kitchen plate stand that I created to accompany this awesome smelling soap.
I wanted to create a simple plate stand that could hold my current kitchen sink “ammo” when it comes to tackling my dishes & counters – dish soap, hand soap, vinegar cleaner, sponge & veggie brush.
I really like this cute little round bamboo veggie brush I added to my order from Full Circle. It’s made from recycled plant fiber bristles and at only $4.99 it was too good a deal to pass up.
My go-to spot for almost all my up-cycling projects is Goodwill. Everything is so reasonably priced and many things I find there are still in excellent condition, they just need to find a new home and a new purpose.
I found a simple white ceramic rectangular plate and a solid brass candle stick holder at my local Goodwill for $1.50. Total! Can’t beat that! I painted the candle stick holder with grey chalk paint, then sealed it with a coat of clear wax so it wouldn’t matter if it got wet sitting next to my kitchen sink.
Then I attached the ceramic plate on top of the candle stick base using some metal bond adhesive, and voila! Simple plate stand complete! Now my soaps are nice & elevated, away from counter clutter, plus easy to reach when I’m hard at work at the kitchen sink.
Right now Grove Collaborative is offering a really fantastic promotion for you to get a free Mrs. Meyer’s hand soap and $10 off* your first order, plus free shipping. *You will need to place a minimum of $30 worth of product in your cart in order to receive the $10 off.
