A lifelong fine-art photographer, Sherri Kaven has an eye that picks up the tiniest of details. It’s a knack that led the Portland dweller to obsess over something that a lot of people look straight past: the packaging—and ingredients!—of her cleaning products. “I was using what was toted as a ‘natural’ cleaner, but when I started digging into the ingredients, it wasn’t natural at all,” she explains. “My original goal was to make something free of scary chemicals and that made the house smell...

A lifelong fine-art photographer, Sherri Kaven has an eye that picks up the tiniest of details. It’s a knack that led the Portland dweller to obsess over something that a lot of people look straight past: the packaging—and ingredients!—of her cleaning products. “I was using what was toted as a ‘natural’ cleaner, but when I started digging into the ingredients, it wasn’t natural at all,” she explains. “My original goal was to make something free of scary chemicals and that made the house smell great, so I started playing with essential oils.” After some experimentation, she came up with her first blend—a mixture of water-diluted grapefruit and sweet orange essential oils, which surprised her with it’s grime-busting ability. “I wanted to make an all-purpose cleaner that you wouldn’t be afraid to spray on your hands in a pinch,” Sherri says. “But it’s really exceeded my expectations in terms of effectiveness—it works better than any commercial products for getting stainless steel clean in the kitchen.”

She officially launched Saint Olio in 2014, with glass packaging that would look wayyyy more at home in a super-chic salon than aisle seven of your local grocery store. Now expanded to include two more scents, neroli and sitka, and a whole line of body sprays, perhaps the most ringing endorsement of Sherri’s line is the fact that it’s used to disinfect all 338 rooms of New York’s Standard High Line hotel—’cuz you know there’s no harsher cleanliness critic than fancy outta towners. —liz sheldon
