Ecover Product Review

Spread the love

I am always looking for better cleaning products that are better for the environment. I am not always able to find a product that is both effective and earth friendly, as well as, doesn’t cost a fortune. I discovered Ecover products and thought I would give them a try. I received the Toilet Cleaner in Bay Breeze and the Laundry Detergent in Sunny Day scent. Ecover strives to make Earth friendly products; in addition to packaging them in Earth Friendly containers. The first product I tried was the Toilet Cleaner. The first thing I noticed when I opened the container is the scent. The cleaner has a very nice, clean scent it doesn’t smell like chemicals or bleach. The next thing I noticed was the nozzle. It is a small nozzle so when you squeeze the bottle a small amount comes out so there is little waste. I found the product to do be very effective in cleaning and the smell was very refreshing it also only costs around $4 for 25 oz. Here is some information about the toilet cleaner from Ecover:

Personal benefits:

  • plant based ingredients

I was also very impressed with the Laundry Detergent; it is a clear detergent with a nice clean scent. The bottle of detergent provides enough detergent to wash 51 HE loads of laundry. The cost of this is about $13. The only thing I would recommend when using the laundry detergent would be to pay attention to the cap. It is 2 pieces so when you unscrew the cap make sure that you hold the bottom ring of the cap or you will remove the entire cap. Here is some information about the Laundry Detergent from Ecover:
