Susan Recommends


BabyBliss Pro
Hair Dryer
I have had my BabyBliss Pro for 20 years and it never lets me down. It's strong, has a great cold shot, gets nice and hot on the hottest temperature, and dries thick hair quickly. It lasts forever, and the brand has been around for a long time. Made Italy. Note: It is not the lightest weight hair dryer.
Ben a Qui
Cleaning Supplies
I've got something amazing, Ben A Qui! This all natural polish and should get rid of the water spots on granite in no time. It is also amazing at getting water spots off shower glass. We got rid of them with the Ben A Qui! You should similarly awesome results on granite! (Make sure you don't use vinegar on on marble, though, as it will etch and damage it -- vinegar is awesome for water spots in showers, though, and shower fixtures!!)
Betabrand Dresspant Yoga Jeans
Women's Pants
These are the most flattering, stylish, classy jeans that are as comfortable as yoga pants, with real pockets! They slim you down like crazy, have great stretch, and are beautiful!! The straight legs are actually chic looking.
Better Shea Butter Whipped Body Butter
Better Shea Butter is nice and rich without being oily.
Bon Ami
Cleaning Supplies
Bon Ami is a green product that I use to deep clean sinks, shower walls and ceramic cooktops. Apply a small amount of Bon Ami on these surfaces and use the scrubby side of a sponge to easily take the grime off.
CALM Magnesium Supplement
I do 1 big tablespoon of CALM about a half hour before bed. It works like a charm every time. Just don't too much when you first start!
Cashmere Wrap by J. Crew
This cashmere wrap is so gorgeous. It's so, so soft and of the highest quality. It looks very good on.
Conair Hand Held Fabric Steamer
I love my hand steamer! You can get it same day delivered on Amazon, too. It's so quick and does a beautiful job. I use it on other things, too, like new shower curtains, etc.
Corpus - natural deodorant
As a user of only natural products, finding a good deodorant has been challenging, especially with an active lifestyle. This is the best out there with no chemicals, no artificial fragrances (just essential oils and other natural distillates, etc.) and it smells like a gorgeous perfume. In fact, if they sold the Neroli, the Santalum, the Botanist, and the Green as perfumes, I would buy them all. Not sticky, effective. Pretty packaging, too!
Dr. Bronner's Organic Sugar Soaps
The soap is a gorgeous caramel color and does have a light scent from the natural ingredients. It's loaded with lots of natural oils, Shikakai sugar, and organic grape juice as well.
Ecos Parsley Plus All Purpose Cleaner
Cleaning Supplies
ECOS Parsley Plus is an all-purpose cleaner can be used on any surface in the house, including wood. Keep this product on hand to clean the surfaces in your kitchen and bathroom.
FATCO Cleansing Oil for Dry Skin
Facial Cleanser
I am obsessed with good skin! This one is so lovely -- light scent, gentle, with tons of fatty oils and tallow, which makes your skin SO glowy, dewy, and gorgeous!! It's also all natural with no chemicals
KIBEE Dish Drying Rack
Dish Rack
This is the best thing ever for those us with smaller galley kitchens. You just unroll it over your sink, and place your hand washed dishes there!
Krud Kutter
Cleaning Supplies
Krud Kutter is my favorite degreaser to remove stubborn stains that may hang on to stovetops. Let the degreaser sit for one minute before you wipe it away with a sponge.
Luxe Bidet Neo 120
I recommend the Luxe Bidet Neo 120! It is so easy to install and is very basic and inexpensive. A good starter bidet! I am going to upgrade to a fancier one with heat and a dryer now that I know I like them.
Maple Holistics Sage Shampoo
I was allergic to some of the ingredients in shampoos, so switched to natural shampoos. I very much like Maple Holistics Sage for Dry Scalp and Hydrate Shampoo for Color Treated Hair or Dandruff. My hair became thicker using the Maple Holistics, and I think it's because my scalp wasn't irritated.
Laundry Detergent
I usually use Bon Ami, but sometimes you just want a little bit of scent (non-toxic, still!) powdered cleanser. This household cleaning powder is lovely, smells terrific, and has a super pretty package (I'm a sucker for nice packaging). The owners have a true commitment to sustainable earth practices, and it works beautifully.
Miele Vacuum
Vacuum Cleaner
They are the best of the best :) The Pet Care one is amazing and even has a power upholstery tool, which is great for grabbing cat / dog hair from sofas, etc. It is lovely! You can get a HEPA filter or charcoal filter for odor control. The vacuum bag seals shut after each use, keeping smells inside, and you definitely want something with vacuum bags with pets so the smell doesn't stick to the plastic. The hardwood floor attachment is beautiful as well. George at City Vacuum in Shoreline is amazing, 3rd generation vacuum shop store owner, and can show you everything. You also get a free joke every time you visit him!
Onsen Bath Towels
They are lovely, absorbent, don’t smell musty, and I love them!
Exercise Bike
I love the Peleton app! It is so easy to use, and you can find anything from 10 minute, 15 minute, 20 minute, 30 minute, 40 minute, etc. exercise programs on there. The strength training ones you can choose arms, abs, full body, legs, etc., so you can do legs one day, abs another, etc.
Perfect Clean All Purpose Wipers
Cleaning Cloth
Microfiber cloths absorb dirt and dust particles easily without scratching surfaces. I keep these reusable cloths on hand to use on edge wood floors and wipe down countertops.
Speed Cleaning Tile Brush
Cleaning Supplies
I use tile brushes to clean the nooks and crannies around your sink, in the shower, on door hinges and around the rubber seals in your fridge. After I'm done with the tile brush, I use hydrogen peroxide to sanitize it.
Speed Queen Washer and Dryer
Washing Machine
We use Speed Queen Commercial for our business laundry and nothing beats it!
Splash Patrol Natural Latex Cleaning Gloves
Rubber Gloves
These reusable rubber gloves will help you to protect your hands from bacteria and cleaning solutions while you clean.


AA All City Appliance Repair
AA All City Appliance Repair. Greg runs a great business, and is ethical. Great to work with.
City Vacuum & Sewing Center
Great, honest company run by a super ethical family! They fix our cleaning company's Mieles and he charges a fair price, is fun to work with, and will make you laugh every time you go into his shop.
Eco Lighting Electric
I love Daniel, the owner. He is always reasonably priced, quick, knowledgeable, careful, thoughtful, respectful, and honest. He is also just a super nice guy to work with, as are his employees. I purchased an older home several years ago, and every so often will get a wild hair about, say, adding a wall sconce on a wall, or adding an outlet directly behind a new table so no cords are showing, etc. He is always ready to give me a date he is available, completes the task at the price quoted, and always does beautiful work.
ES General Contractor
General Contractor
I hired Zeke Vicenio from ES General Contractor - they specialize in custom kitchen cabinets. He does beautiful work -- he did the cabinets under my stairs and, because my house is a hundred years old and not perfectly even, it was a challenge. They turned out gorgeous!
NW Hoarding
Junk Removal
This company is wonderful for taking loving, gentle care of hoarding situations. We've referred to them numerous times, and every time we've had great feedback. Hoarding can be such a delicate and sensitive issue -- often with the owner feeling vulnerable, judged, a bit lost or scared. This company approaches with kindness, and that is exactly what the hoarding doctor ordered!!
Recycling Services
Ridwell is amazing, and they recycle plastic film (the main reason I have them) -- this includes your Amazon Mailers! They also regularly collect batteries, light bulbs, "threads" (clothing), Styrofoam (fee is $9), and other items are rotated throughout the year: plastic forks etc., toner cartridges, toothpaste tubs, and tons of other things! I paid upfront and the entire year was only $120 (not including the Styrofoam pick ups).
Zerorez Carpet Cleaning
Carpet Cleaner
I recommend this company to all of our move out cleaning customers. They do GORGEOUS work! And they're green. And they're ethical! Anthony, the owner, is awesome. He donates carpet cleanings to good causes (youth homes, etc.) and so cares about his customers. They have a great odor removal service for homes that've had pet accidents. And on my furnished rental with some unexpected, and quite significant, staining on white chairs, they got all of the stains out and it looks brand new. They're reasonable, their cleaning disinfects without harsh chemicals, and I can't say enough about their customer service.


Accutint Northwest
Auto Mechanic
Greg, the owner, is awesome, and so is his wife. They take good care of me and my cars and takes care of my special, quirky requirements (I don't like any scents as they give me a headache), and they even have the car doors open (while it is on the red carpet waiting for me to pick up) to let any scent air out. It is that extra level of care and personal relationship that I really treasure. That, and the good work and very reasonable pricing.
Brown Bear Car Wash
Car Wash
I love that they make an effort to be green, conveniently located, take considerable pride in their business (those bear statues cannot be inexpensive) that makes it fun and pretty to drive through, and their monthly pass is only $22 (unlimited). We use them for our company cars, my personal cars, and the employees remember things (such as I don't like the hand held cleaning brush used on my car).
Russell's Mobile Car Detailing
The most detailed, thorough, attention to detail car detailing I think I have ever had. Every single crevice, nook, cranny was tended to. Russell's Car Care has more mobile equipment I think I have ever seen (and a lot of it was so tiny it looked like dental drills and equipment!). He does not skimp on time -- it was about 4 hours. And that they come to you is such a bonus. I cannot recommend enough.
Stones German Garage
Auto Mechanic
They work on my Porsches, they are friendly, honest, fair, and I trust they are doing to do a good job and not overcharge me. The owner is also just a personable, cool guy, and a fell crow lover!
USA Auto Glass Repair
Auto Glass
We love USA Auto Glass. They're locally owned, the owner is honest and responsive, they are always cheaper than anyone else I price compare against (and their quality is better, too). They repair all of our company cars when we get chips and/or need windshields replaced. On my personal car, they've replaced the windshield on mine and did an exquisite job. They were about $150 less on my own car (it has all kinds of sensors, etc.) than any other place I price compared.
