>A while ago, ecostoreUSA contacted me to see if I’d be interested in reviewing some of their products. Of course I did, because I love finding new products that are not toxic and are safe to use. This is a company that actually started in New Zealand, and I won’t get into the whole story, but you can check it out here. I love reading stuff like this but maybe everyone else doesn’t, so I’ll include the link and you can decide for yourself!!
My husband decided over the past several weekends to put this stuff to the test some more, because one of my brothers gave us a huge playhouse/playset structure his kids have outgrown and we had to modify it to work in our yard. This is the end result- but the before, during and after made for more dirty, grimy clothing…and yes, the last load is on the line now waiting for Mr. Sun to work the rest of his magic, but you honestly cannot tell that my husband laid in mulch and moved dirt, and shingles and wood and whatever else he’s had to do to make this a reality!!
Carbonates (simple mineral salts)
Highly biodegradable surfactant
Natural citrus oil
This will tell you that I like this brand: two of my 3 kids had a stomach bug last week. Gross, I know. But we don’t mess around when we have a sick kid, because we try to do what we can to prevent the others from getting sick- and ourselves!! So trusting what we run in the dishwasher to get germs off of our dishes is key. And the Auto Dish Powder is what I used daily last week to get all of the kids’ dishes, cups, bathtub toys and any other plastic toys I could run through the dishwasher lean with. Definitely something we’ll continue to use!!
