EcoStore Review and Giveaway

I was thrilled when I was contacted by EcoStore USA to review a couple of their products. I have been on a search to find a better way to clean toilets. I wanted to stop using chemicals that end up polluting our water systems. The homemade answers I had found really didn't work and were disappointing.

I received a Toilet Cleaner and a Pure Oxygen Whitener (for laundry). I was also given a bonus product that I'm choosing to give away (see below to enter).

From the website regarding the Toilet Cleaner:
Because Ecostore USA’s Toilet Cleaner uses NO NASTY CHEMICALS, your toilet will not only be fresh and clean but safe for Earth’s waterways as well. Conventional products have released toxins, dyes and synthetic perfumes into toilets for years causing water degradation. Created with your environment in mind, this product is extraordinary.

•Anionic and Amphoteric Detergents (from coconut oil)
•Formic acid
•Ethereal Oils
•Citric acid

Also from the website:
The Pure Oxygen Whitener contains oil of citrus and Coconut and other plant-based ingredients. Ecomommas will love the way this product brightens and cleans baby’s clothes and does not contain any harsh chemicals that could irritate delicate skin.

•Carbonates (simple mineral salts)
•Sodium percarbonate (oxygen producing whitener)
•Sodium bicarbonate (baking soda)
•Citrates (from citrus)
•Highly biodegradable surfactant
•Natural citrus oil

My thoughts:
I thought the toilet cleaner did a great job of cleaning the toilet. I've had trouble with some non-chemical toilet bowl cleaners allowing stains or mildew to come back sooner than chemical cleaners. I thought this plant based cleaner worked as well as a chemical cleaner.

When I tried the Pure Oxygen Whitener, I was very impressed. In one day, 4 of the 5 members of my family managed to spill red things onto white tshirts. I had three Taco Bell Red Sauce shirts plus a very nice ketchup shirt. I knew these shirts were probably lost to me forever. So I used the Pure Oxygen Whitener as a soak. I soaked the shirts overnight, then sprayed with prewash and washed as normal. Of the four shirts, I was able to get three clean on the first try. The last one took me a few soakings to get clean.

The other thing I've been working at cleaning is Chocolate Ice Cream. Rebekah now gets a chocolate cone or a twist cone when we eat out. I love chocolate and understand her desire for the flavor, but she appears to drip chocolate ice cream onto every nice shirt she owns. I can't believe how well this has been getting chocolate out of her shirts. It's saved us a fortune in not having to get new clothes.

I'm happy to say that EcoStore is now manufacturing all of our products in the USA and we are working on perfecting our shipping strategies. All of their packaging (including the packing slip) is recycled and/or all natural materials. You can learn more at the EcoStore USA Blog.

Would you like to win an EcoStore product??

I received a bar of Manuka Honey & Kelp soap. Instead of hogging it for myself, I thought I'd give it away to one of you.
