Review and giveaway (giveaway closed): ecostore USA



Congrats to my giveaway winner, Stacey!

I recently had the opportunity to learn about ecostore USA and to try out a couple of their products. ecostore USA is a branch of ecostore, a company started more than 15 years ago in New Zealand. The company is committed to making products that will help get you and your home clean, without putting any "nasty chemicals" into your home environment. Click here for a full list of the nasty things that they don't use! In addition to being safer for your family to use than many other cleaning products, the items from ecostore USA are much less costly than other "green" cleaning supplies.

I chose to try two products of the type that I use most often in my home- a toilet cleaner and an all-purpose cleaning spray. They arrived quickly at my home, packaged up with soy packing peanuts in a box made out of recyclable paper. Even the paper insert that came with my supplies was made out of recyclable paper! I love that commitment to being eco-friendly!



The first product I tried out was the Natural citrus spray cleaner. I was really happy with how well this product worked to clean my (always sticky) kitchen counters. And it worked well on my stove, which had oil splashed on it from dinner. It also did a great job of the kitchen counters and sink. A little goes a long way with this spray- so don't do like I did and spray a lot onto whatever you're cleaning. I've gotten used to budget cleaning products that you have to use a ton of- this is not one of those! Just spray a little and you're good.



I also tested out the toilet cleaner. I've tried some "green" products in the past and was not happy with the results. But this toilet cleaner was nice and thick and clung to the bowl well. It did a great job of cleaning my toilet, and I was very happy with the results. It's even gotten my toilets up to a "mother-in-law coming to stay for 4 days" level of clean, if you know what I mean.

I'm really happy to learn about ecostore USA and all the great products it has to offer. The store has much more than just cleaning products, you can also get baby products, hair care, pet care, and bath and body products. So, if you've made a commitment to living greener in the new year, please drop by ecostore USA and see all they have to help you out with that goal!

One of you is going to win a $25 gift certificate to ecostore USA! (US/Canadian mailing addresses only, please)

Mandatory entry (must be done for extra entries to count):
Visit the ecostore USA and let me know what product (other than the two I mentioned here) that you like best.

5. Put my button up on your blog (let me know where to find it)

6. Visit LuvnLife and enter one or more of her giveaways! Leave a separate comment for each one that you enter.

Giveaway will close at 9 PM PST on February 13, 2010. I'll choose a winner with random.org and will email that person who will have 48 hours to respond. Good luck!
