Living in a eco-friendly world can be hard if products are not available on the market to use as a healthy alternative to chemical based cleaning products. Ecover, an environmentally conscious company, hails from overseas and has been making 100% natural cleaning products for over ten years. It is very popular overseas however is just now hitting the shelves of many health food stores.
My family usually uses snuggles however it is chemical based and when drained for the washing machine, the chemicals go into the cities' water system. If this weren't enough of an issue, the clothes that we wash with snuggles cause carry carcinogens that can later cause cancer. So we switched to the natural alternative from Ecover. We have not turned our heads back since we started using it.
The smell is light and contains a fresh clean smell instead of a fruity smell. We use it directly in the "Downy ball" that automatically releases the softener into our washing machine without having to be there. The clothes feel fresher than when using Snuggles and it can be used for baby and adult clothes alike.
Ecover has come out with the perfect alternative cleaning product that I can never leave without. It is perfect for allergy prone families, those with smaller children, or any family that uses laundry softener.
