ECOVER STAIN REMOVER REVIEW AND GIVEAWAY

When you first start out on the quest to be eco-friendly or "green", it is very overwhelming. Do you stop using all products that contain harmful chemicals? Do you throw everything out? What do you start with? When I began my journey, I started by changing one product at a time.

I have always been interested in the environment. When you begin a family, I, like a lot of people, began to see the world completely different. When you have a child, your laundry routine also changes!! You have more loads of laundry of course, but you also have to deal with stains that you never thought about before. There are food stains, stains from blow outs, and as your child grows you have a whole new set of stains. On my search for more eco-friendly cleaning/laundry products I found Ecover. Ecover states:

Ecover stands for careful enterprise. This means that we produce our washing and cleaning products in an ecological, economic and socially responsible way in a unique ecological factory. Honest and open, we respect people and the environment. In our view, this is the only way to guarantee a sustainable future

The statement really was all that I was looking for. I contacted Ecover to do a review on my blog and they sent over the Ecover Stain Remover for us to try.

With a very active (and messy) toddler, I was able to try the product right away. The bottle has a wonderful brush on the top and really helps with getting in there and removing all of the stain. I kept the stain remover in my kitchen for easy access. I used the stain remover on grass, blood, chocolate, some kind of red ice pop, and pen. Let me explain a little about the pen. I do not normally give my 2 1/2 year old a pen, but he found one early one morning when I was still in bed. I heard a strange noise from the other room and when to see what happened. To my horror, my darling son was drawing all over our micro suede ottoman. AHHH. What was I going to do? You can not just take the cover off and throw it in the wash. I began scrubbing with soap and water.. and then the light bulb went on.. try the Ecover Stain Remover!!! I am sure when Ecover was in the lab making this product they did not think that one of the uses was to clean up after a fight with a pen and an ottoman. I began to scrub! With the brush applicator tip, it was so easy to scrub into the fabric. I am sure there might be a product that better suits this job, but the Ecover stain remover did the job. It took out ALL the pen. The stain remover also has a pleasant scent that made my living room smell great :)
I would definitely recommend the Ecover Stain Remover for everyday use. No harsh chemicals, great for whites and colorfast laundry,optimum level of biodegradability, and not tested on animals. This product was great and in our house it is used everyday!!

After looking at the website, I would also like to try the All Purpose Cleaner Natural Lemon Fragrance. I have tile in a large portion of my home, but I really like that it can be used on painted wood. Hopefully that means walls! Our house is still "new construction ivory" and is 10 years old. It's showing it's age with fingerprints, etc. Maybe this could spruce it up some without repainting??
