If you've checked in with me before, you know that my household is a medium shade of green. We eat organic whenever possible, we recycle, we use natural health and beauty products, and that we use as many natural cleaning products as possible. It has then become a sort of experiment to find the most efficacious products to use. I love trying new things that are better for my family, better for the earth, and work better than what I am currently using. EcoStore offered me a couple of their products to try in exchange for my honest opinion. I am happy to say that both of the products I tried have their merits, and that I am probably forever sold on their whitener, or bleach alternative as the case may be. The other item we have been using is the 'Nappy Balm' which comes in a glass jar that I think is so much better than a plastic tube. It is a product that is so natural that I was even willing to try it out on the wee little one.
The whitener rocked my world. I had been waiting patiently for a good occasion to try it out though. I figured a week's worth of back-to-school socks was a worthy test subject. The socks came out of my dryer actually white, which is something that has been eluding me with the hydrogen peroxide based bleach that I have been using for a year or so now. I also used the powder as a stain remover scrub. While that was not a use sanctioned by the packaging, it worked really well, and took out some of the set in greasy pizza stains from my oldest child's new polo shirts.
I understand that their products are available at Meijer stores and on their website. I know that I would love to see Whole Foods carry their product line. You guys please check them out if you are like me and looking for 'green' clean, the company is serious about the environment right down to their packing materials (soy peanuts...how cool is that?)
