Ecover Review and Giveaway!
This year my family and I have been making an effort to go "greener". In our effort to become more green, we have been trying to find cleaning products that are environmentally friendly.
I was thrilled with the chance to try Ecover All Purpose cleaner. Ecover produces their washing and cleaning products in an ecological, economic and socially responsible way in a unique ecological factory.
The cleaner comes in a 32 oz bottle. The ingredients list is very short! Water, non-ionic surfactants, fatty acid, alcohol, citrate, lactic acid, glyceryl caprylate, fragrance (lemon).
As stated on the bottle, it is fast and complete biodegradility. The cleaner has minimal impact on aquatic life, and is not tested on animals.
I absolutely love the smell of the All Purpose Cleaner! When you open the bottle you are greeted with this amazing fresh lemon smell. It is like someone cut open a real lemon and left it sitting on the counter. The fragrance is fresh plant based. I am a sucker for a citrus fragrances, so that immediately had my attention!
1 cap full equals 1 fl oz. It is recommended you use 1-2 cap fulls in a half a bucket of water. I mixed mine that way, then poured it into a spray bottle. I used it to mop my linoleum floors and to clean my counter tops. I was very pleased with the overall cleaning power of Ecover.
At around $5 per bottle, I think it is reasonably priced and will last a few months. It is a versatile cleaner that can be used in the kitchen, bathroom, or just about anywhere. You will love the fresh clean smell when you are finished cleaning.
