Ecover Review

I have recently started buying cleaning products that contain no harsh chemicals. I find that I am chemically sensitive and the less toxins I introduce into my household the better. I can’t even walk down the cleaning aisle in Walmart without sneezing or having my eyes water! Also, I don’t want my children to be exposed to anything harmful. I was happy to discover Ecoverwhich is a company that produces ecological cleaners.Ecover was founded in 1980 in Belgium and is considered to be a pioneer in its industry. For instance, Ecover was producing phosphate-free washing powder long before phosphates were ever considered to be a problem. Their products are now marketed in over 20 countries.

Ecover has a wide range of products including products for dishwashing, laundry, household cleaners, hand soap and even stuff to clean your car and boat! If you visit their website, you can even print out a coupon to save on your next purchase. You can purchase Ecover products from many online retailers or in certain stores like Whole Foods. Their website has a list of where you can find a store near you.
My Review

Ecover sent me Ecological Glass & Surface Cleaner for my review. It contains plant based ingredients and is completely biodegradable with minimum impact on aquatic life. Its suitable for use in your kitchen, or on your windows, tiles, enamel, bath and chrome.

I am a big user of glass cleaner since I have a glass kitchen table as well as glass end tables in my living room. I need to clean them each day because they are constantly getting little fingerprints all over them from my 2 kids. I was excited to try this product as I am looking for ways to live greener and limit the chemicals that I expose my kids to. I can’t stand the smell of harsh cleaners to begin with.
I have been using Ecover’s Ecological Glass & Surface Cleaner for the past two weeks on a daily basis and I love it. It does the job wonderfully leaving no streaks and it cleans the glass up easily. I actually prefer it over the brand name glass cleaner that I previously used. A little goes a long way too and there’s no need to spray too much. I just spray it a few times on the surface and wipe it up with a jcloth and voila- a clean table!
The smell is mild too and it doesn’t have that harsh burn the nose hairs right off kind of smell. It is a great price too! I didn’t find prices on the Ecover website so I checked at one of their online retailers, Herb Trader and this particular product is $3.73! I think that is a very affordable price for a product that is safe alternative to harsh chemical cleansers.
I plan to continue to use Ecover products and I am interested in trying out some of their other products. Great company and product!
