We are family. We founded Mother of Invention as a mother and daughter, Monique van de Merwe and Jeanine Laver. We are also parents, and we want to leave the world a better place for our children than the way we found it, and we know you do too.

We started  Mother of Invention with the goal of offering natural and effective cleaning products that are less harmful to our planet than traditional cleaning products, made specifically to be baby, pet and family safe. It’s our way of doing better. We want to be part of your everyday cleaning routine, but more importantly we want to be part of your part of your every day, “doing better” routine.
