It's Giveaway Time!! $25 GC Giveaway and a Review!

I was contacted by the folks at Ecostore USA to do a review and giveaway! The first thing I did was research before I accepted, as I always do. My first go to, was a great friend who knows all about product ingredients (thank you LL!). I am always looking for products (that are also affordable) that have good, safe, ingredients that I can pronounce :), to use on or for our family. Ecostore USA prides itself on No Nasty Chemicals that are safe for the environment.

Review Time

After researching Ecostore's products and remembering that I live in a house full of (cute) boys, I am bound to do a lot of laundry and need to whiten some clothes! :) And I'm excited about products with No Nasty Chemicals to use that will touch our and our babies' (or pets') skin! So these are the two products I chose to review...



Pros: Safe ingredients for the family, nice scent, left clothes nice and clean!
Cons: As a powder, for me it is a little tedious to get into the box, untie the bag, scoop, retie the bag, close it up, rather than a liquid where you just open pour in then close the cap. That could just be me :). Otherwise great.


Pros: 1. When used to soak - Got rid of a water stain in a table cloth that another liquid stain remover left (ha). Once you mix the powder and water, toss in items and grab a cup of coffee while it soaks. Left clothes brighter. 2. When used added to detergent in machine - Hubby's t-shirts, white towels, etc. were definitely whiter. I laid out two of each item, one washed with Ecostore detergent w/ Ecostore whitener added and one with "old detergent" without telling Hubby which was which, and he chose the Ecostore washed items as being whiter! I did too! And I have to say I was pleasantly surprised :)
Cons: It was a bit bulky to me to find and use a bucket, measure the powder and warm water, wait for the powder to dissolve and then put my items in to use as a soak but worth it. Can you tell, I don't do this much. But since this is a No Nasty Chemicals way to do it, I'll be doing it more! :)

Conclusion

I would buy both products again and I would like try some of the other cleaning products as well based on my research! Since my friend doesn’t make and sell her own products anymore I’ve been wanting to find other No Nasty Chemicals cleaners! I love that it’s safe for the babies (and us), is all-natural, and has a nice scent. Seriously, you need to check out the ingredients.

    I'd like to try the Laundry Liquid soap! I'm not a fan of powders either - espec for our front loader. To me, it just doesn't clean as well and it's messy.

    That is so neat that you got to try those products! I would love the dog shampoo or toilet cleaner. I know, toilet cleaner is lame, but I would love to see how a green product compares to my old standby of Comet.

    haha I want to baby nappy balm - just cause that's the best name ever :-) and jayci will probably like it. . .

    but I'd also love the pure oxygen whitener :-)

    I'm noticing Coop has really dry skin so I would love to try these products! I think the sleepytime bath tops the list!

    Becky said...
