EcoStore products contain "No Nasty Chemicals". Here's a list of some of the things they avoid...
* NO toxic petrochemicals
* NO enzymes
* NO optical whiteners
* NO synthetic perfumes or dyes
* NO Sodium Lauryl Sulphate
* NO phosphates
* NO bleach
* NO ammonia or ammonia derivatives like TEA, DEA or MEA
* NO parabens
* No propylene glycol
Yeah, that's a lot of nasty stuff, and you can read on their website for specifics on WHY they avoid them, such as health complications and being detrimental to our water systems.
EcoStore USA was gracious enough to let me chose two items from their store to try out. After much deliberating, I decided on their toilet cleaner and multi-purpose spray.
I'm a little bit embarrassed to say how excited I was to try their toilet cleaner. Our water comes from a spring on our property, so we have some pretty hard water. This has left very stubborn, and very yucky-looking, stains in the toilet bowl. Not wanting to use mainstream toilet cleaners (containing those nasty chemicals listed above, and not sure if they'd even work), I've learned to live with them, after MUCH scrubbing to no avail.
As soon as my package from EcoStore USA arrived, I ran to the bathroom to give the toilet cleaner a try. The Sprouts, being the curious creatures they are, crowded around me (and as there are no potent fumes in these products, I didn't mind). Ten minutes later, the toilet bowl looked 90% better. I haven't seen it so white since when the toilet was first installed. Absolutely amazing!!! I would post pictures, buuuut, it is a toilet bowl we're talking about. *wink*
The multi-purpose spray is awesome as well. It's naturally anti-bacterial due to the citrus oils, so I've been using it a lot both in the bathroom and kitchen. Smells great too, without being too strong.
