About

VeraClean began in 2009 when Kimberly Jones, full-time homemaker and mother of four, grabbed a mop, and a bucket of cleaning supplies, and started her own house cleaning business in Denver, Colorado.  

VeraClean ~ The Natural Choice for Clean

For years, Kimberly was inclined to try dozens of house cleaning products. Frustration set in as she scoured the supermarket shelves, putting her trust in the products that were being sold. Feeling misled by the non-disclosure of billion dollar company label ingredients, Kimberly began researching and formulating her private blend of cleaning products that not only produced effective results, but were also affordable. She wanted cleaning products that were packed full of essential oils, biodegradable surfactants and citrus citrates. 

Knowing that these products would be used in the homes they cleaned, she wanted them to be safe, not only for household surfaces, but also for kids, pets and the employees that would be using them on a daily basis. By fall 2012, VeraClean had introduced their natural cleaning products to thousands of homes throughout Denver and eventually in Portland, Oregon (2nd branch opened in 2013).

After 18 months of proven success and phenomenal client reviews, VeraClean is bringing their natural formulations and introducing a private line of true cleaning products to the retail market.  VeraClean’s natural cleaners deliver considerable cleaning power without adding harmful toxins such as bleach, ammonia, triclosan, artificial fragrances, unnecessary optical brighteners and synthetic preservatives. We’re not afraid to list our ingredients right on the label, because there’s nothing to hide! Packed with the safest and purest ingredients, our cleaning products are guaranteed to deliver amazing cleaning results, at minimal cost to consumers.

As we began producing our initial 4 cleaning products, we envisioned cleaning solutions and personal care products that were safe, natural, and naturally beautiful… not synthetically beautiful. We continued our research for even more products that would enable homeowners to convert their homes into a naturally clean environment. Keeping in mind the fact that color is natural and beautiful - VeraClean is proud to bring color and personal style back into natural cleaning and personal care products.

So, Why the Kickstarter Campaign? 

Everyone knows house cleaning is tough work. Bringing 49 new products to the retail market is tough too! Here's what we've been up to these past 2 years (besides cleaning house):

  • Formulating 4 essential AND affordable cleaning products for every household.
  • Testing (in willing client's homes) and using the products in thousands of homes in Denver & Portland.
  • Professional chemist fees to perfect formulas and convert cups and tablespoons to pounds and ounces; so thankful for home economics!
  • We didn't stop there! Researching natural hand soap, hand lotion, and dish soap formulas.
  • More chemist fees to perfect formulas.
  • 3rd party vigorous  microbial testing, analysis, and preservative efficacy.
  • Analyzing of raw materials to ensure purity and excellence.
  • Compliance with federal, state and local regulations.
  • Finding the perfect bottles, closures, pumps and triggers.
  • Researching perfect blends of essential oils to find 11 unique fragrances.
  • Label design and re-design and re-design -  I'm really picky.
  • Minimum orders of soaps, lotions, dish soaps and cleaning products
  • Boxes, packaging supplies and test shipments.

  • FINALLY! Bottle filling - this is where you come in to help us finish our products! Our natural formulas are ready to be taken to the bottling company to be correctly filled and labeled. 
  • 25-B Exempt Registration (currently registered in Colorado, each state requires individual registration).
  • Our Kickstarter goal of $38,500 will allow us to get these truly clean products into your hands with a Kickstarter discount!
