What do you get when you cross between an ecological and effective laundry detergent and one that smells great as well? You get Ecover, a highly-effective, gentle, and plant-based laundry detergent. Doing laundry in my house has become a daily grind. I honestly don’t know how 2 adults and 1 child can accumulate so much laundry on a daily basis – maybe it’s the fact that there are two boys in the house, I don’t know, but we end up going through a lot of laundry detergent. That’s why I decided to best find a laundry detergent that won’t harm my family or the environment. I can imagine pictures of the ocean or our nearby lakes encumbered with a sludge of laundry detergent residue and the poor sea animals waving their angry fists at me. Luckily for me (and the sea animals), there were some pretty good eco-friendly laundry detergents out on the market, and Ecover is one of my favorites. Why? Because they use plant-based cleaning agents, their products are biodegradable, and they smell great. I use fragrance-free detergent from time to time, but when I find a wonderful laundry cleaning product that is non-toxic and smells fantastic, it’s worth to give it a try.
Ecover makes a wide assortment of home and personal cleaning products, all powered by nature. They’ve won numerous awards in the US and Europe recognized for their intense cleaning power with an ethical philosophy. Ecover’s products are safer for you and for the environment and they promise to use only ingredients derived from nature. What does that mean exactly? It means that their ingredients are plant and mineral based and sourced from renewable resources. And their products are fully biodegradable so you can use them knowing that they won’t add to the destruction of our precious planet. There are many laundry cleaning products out there, but most of them are ladened with not-so-friendly ingredients that eventually harm our clothes and our planet. When natural ingredients are used, your clothes do not become compromised and it actually may last longer.
Ecover has been in the natural home and personal cleaning industry for over 30 years and began originally in Europe. When the company found an effective and safe product that was great for both people and the environment, they soon expanded their laundry care line to include handsoaps, dishwashing detergent, and bathroom cleaners. Soon, people all over the world started using Ecover and Ecover became a popular household name. We’ve tried several of their products and have found them all to be very useful, great-smelling, and works just as well if not better than the conventional cleaning products. Ecover sent me several products to try and they were: Ecover Laundry Wash HE, which works with high efficiency washing machines; Ecover Stain Remover which is great for removing smaller stains; and Ecover Dishwashing Tablets which works well in both the dishwasher and for hand washing your dishes (you simply break apart the tablet and soak it in water to become instant dishwashing detergent!).

You can find Ecover products in natural grocery stores, in certain supermarkets and you can also order products from their online store: http://ecover.alice.com. Their cleaning products are a reasonable price and they come in several sizes so you can choose the size that fits your need. Ecover also makes cleaning products for your car and I think if you’re going to wash and maintain your car at home. why not use something that’s not harmful to the environment?
