Murchison Hume Giveaway

Filed Under > Uncategorized


While buying for The Shop a few months ago I was introduced to a new-to-me line of homecleaning products, Murchison Hume.  I was immediately drawn to MH’s classic and stylish packaging, their intoxicating scents of fig and Australian grapefruit, and upon learning about their environmentally safe, non toxic creation process  I was sold.  To put it more simply MH’s green house cleaning products are “people safe, child safe, pet safe, plant safe, eco friendly, natural, non toxic, 100% cruelty free, and never tested on animals.”  And we’re not just talking about cleaning products.  There’s also the bag butler leather conditioner, garment cleaner, furniture spritz, basically everything you need in your linen closet.  And I think I mentioned they’re gorgeous!  Finally products you can actually leave out on your counter…pretty and smart.

Murchison Hume was founded in Sydney Australia in 2007 by a fabulous couple, Max and Peter Kater.  Their story goes a little something like this…Max was born and raised in a beige-and-leafy suburb of Los Angeles, where she dreamed of Bright Lights and the Big City.  After a brief stint as a Junior Publicist in Hollywood she landed her first job as a Fashion Editor and never looked back.  Her job ultimately took her to Hong Kong, where she met her husband and business partner, Peter, in a private disco.  Max gave up her career as a Fashion Editor to be a stay at home Mother, dreaming of gorgeous housecleaning products that didn’t exist.

Peter was born in Sydney, Australia and had the same itchy feet to see the world as Max. Growing tired of morning group exercise at Mitsubishi Corporation, “I do miss the morning stretches sometimes,” he set his cap for Old Hong Kong. There he worked for an eco-savvy company that started his long association with environmentally conscious businesses. After a long and successful tenure in the corporate world, Peter has been gently coaxed away from his lucrative career to become the Managing Director of Murchison-Hume.“Not nearly the same salary, but the perks are good.”  After launching in Sydney in 2007 they have returned to live in LA with their two young sons, Ben and Charlie, who were the inspiration behind the Boy’s Bathroom Cleaner and well the rest is history.  

So to celebrate these amazing products, and the fact that they are now gracing our virtual shelves we’ve partnered with Max and Peter to giveaway their Classic Six Box Set to TWO lucky readers (a $130 value).  The Classic Six includes everything you need to keep the house naturally clean and fresh (boys bathroom cleaner, premium glass polish, spit and polish stainless steel cleaner, furniture spritzer, counter spray, floor splash, bamboo caddy) and comes with a Handy Bamboo Caddy to keep things tidy under the sink. Are we ready to start cleaning?  Happy Monday Loves.  truly, MKR.

 The legal mumbo jumbo...this giveaway is open to US and Australian residents and will run through Sunday the 20th with our winners announced Monday the 21st.  We’ll be running this all through Rafflecopter (below) which allows you to earn points for each item completed with a simple click of the button.  The more points you earn the more likely you are to win (and remember you probably already have entry points if you’re a regular reader of the blog).

This post and giveaway was sponsored by Murchison Hume, but the opinions, and obvious love of Murchison Hume is all my own!

  • KellyinDC / 10.15.2013

    My husband is extremely clean so we have a very clean house, however I struggle with the product he uses-bleach, etc. I would say our cleaning products need a good cleaning (out). I am very sensitive to chemicals. These Murchison Home products look fantastic!

  • Gayle / 10.16.2013

    These products look fab. They would make housecleaning so much more fun (or at least bearable).

    I’ve never used Murchison Home products, but I’d love to give them a whirl!

    It’s not so much a room, as a surface….the glass in every room needs attention!

  • Mahdi / 10.18.2013

    I really need to mop all my hard floors. It hasn’t been done in a couple months! I’d also like to wash all my doors and door handles.
