From the November 2011 issue of Minnesota Monthly: "Best of the Twin Cities"
Lots of cleaning services claim to be green, but only Aaron's Green Cleaning channels the power of essential oils and elbow grease to get your house squeaky clean. In 2006, musician Aaron Barnell decided to upgrade house cleaning from side job to full time gig. With the help of Melissa Ferris (www.veriditasbotanicals.com), essential-oils guru to such stars as Robert De Niro and Madonna, Barnell concocted his omnipotent all-natural product line, then gathered his artist friends and flexed his customer service chops to build his client base. Today, he and his staff service hundreds of homes and commercial buildings every month.
