Recently, I was contacted by Ecostore USA to review some products and host a giveaway for my readers. You may or may not know that I'm not so fond of doing reviews--it just seems like too much homework for me and I'm not a fan of accumulating *stuff* at this point in my life--but I could NOT pass this one by.
Ecostore USA makes Cleaning, Baby & Personal Care products that don't contain any dangerous chemicals (in fact, their slogan is "No Nasty Chemicals"). I was interested in trying out the cleaning products because I've been cleaning the house constantly getting it ready for showings, etc. and I have been trying to use safer/greener products since Rayna was born.
Ecostore USA sent me the Citrus Spray Cleaner and the Toilet Cleaner. (Click the links to read the ingredients of each one). I've used them a bunch of times by now and I really loved them both. The toilet cleaner worked great and was the perfect consistency where it clung to the bowl and slowly dripped down, but wasn't watery. The spray cleaner covered a really wide area with each spray so you use less. As a matter of fact, Ecostore "super-concentrates" all of their products so you save money by using less. Both products I tried had a natural citrus-ey smell to them--kind of smells like powdered lemonade.
I have definitely become a repeat customer after using the toilet cleaner especially. I have tried tons of eco-varieties of toilet bowl cleaner and none of them cling to the rim as well as Ecostore's. The next product I can't wait to try? Their Auto Dishwash Powder. I hate regular brand dishwasher soaps because they almost all contain bleach--even Palmolive "ECO" is almost straight up bleach--and I manage to ruin my clothes constantly...d'oh!
