Why We're Here

Did you know that Murchison-Hume was created when our founder Max Kater learned that her youngest son had inherited her allergic sensitivities to common cleaning products? After trying every “eco-friendly” option out there, the more she learned, the less friendly they seemed. Most didn’t work and others were loaded with synthetic dyes and fragrance. That was a problem.
Armed with a Mother’s determination and an Editor’s eye for style, Max sought to create something that was genuinely safe and effective but also lovely to look at and a pleasure to use.
Our mission at Murchison-Hume is to create the safest, best and most beautiful home cleaning products available and still make them an affordable luxury for every household.
We all want the best for our family, and that’s why we’re here.
