Review and Giveaway: Ecover All Purpose Cleaner - CLOSED

 Photobucket

Ecover was founded in 1980 in Belgium, and has since developed into the world’s largest producer of ecological cleaning products. Besides its headquarters outside of Antwerp, Belgium, Ecover has sites in the U.S., the United Kingdom, Germany, France and Switzerland, and their products are marketed in more than 26 countries. Ecover offers a variety of cleaning products that are phosphate-free and made from plant based and mineral ingredients.

My mom has been using Ecover cleaners for years, and she swears by them. I had yet to try Ecover products in my own home, so I contacted them about testing one of their cleaners. Ecover generously provided me with their All Purpose Cleaner.

Much to my delight, I've been able to use the all purpose cleaner all over the house! I love finding a cleaning product that can handle a wide range of jobs because it cuts down on the number of bottles I have under the sink. Also, it saves time when I'm cleaning a room because I don't have to switch between products. The all purpose cleaner is great for floors, counters, and other hard surfaces. I love the pleasant lemon scent that isn't over-powering. Another great feature of this product is how economical it is. A little goes a long way and one bottle will last me for months!

All natural cleaners are a must for our family, in order to keep our home safe from dangerous toxins. Because Ecover is all natural, I don't have to worry about using their all purpose cleaner around my son. This is great because many times while he is splashing around in the tub, I'm taking advantage of the time to clean the rest of the bathroom. Speaking of bathrooms, here is a great example of a dirty job that the Ecover all purpose cleaner can handle... Recently our new kitten, Chubs, vomited in the bathtub and I didn't notice until it had already dried. I used one cap full of the all purpose cleaner and the mess came right up! Overall, I've been very pleased with the quality and effectiveness of the Ecover all purpose cleaner. I can't wait to try more of their products!

  2. I learned that
    with Ecover products, experience shows that allergic reactions are less likely than with the use of conventional products based on petrochemical ingredients.
