ecostore USA - no nasty* chemicals

This day and age, it's becoming increasingly obvious that not all cleaners are created equal. A couple decades ago, it was common belief that the stronger and harsher the smell, the better it cleaned. Well, those days are long gone and now the hunt is on for safe (and still just as effective) eco-friendly household cleaners.

Ecostore USA is a fantastic line of products for both the home and body that does just that...cleans without harm. They pride themselves on NO toxic petrochemicals, NO phosphates, NO bleach, NO nitrates, NO ammonia, NO chlorine, NO EDTA, NO preservatives, NO DEA or TEA and NO synthetic dyes or perfumes. Basically, a plant based cleaner with all the nasty left out.

I have been using in my home a variety of Ecostore USA products, and have really been loving them. First to try was the toilet cleaner. I'm happy to report that it cleaned my toilet just as I suspected it would. The real treat was that when I read the label and found out that this product also doubles as a stainless steel cleaner!

I also got to test out some of the baby and body product, the nappy balm and coconut bath & body soap. These products worked wonderfully and smelled great. Since the packing is so simple (and the price is so right, only $3 for a bar of soap), they double up nicely as a great economical gift. As an added bonus, a little really went a long way!

Obviously I'm a fan and could go on and on about this company; but I really suggest you just try it out for yourself.

Buy it! Currently, you can pick up Ecostore online; but be on the lookout...it soon will be sold exclusively at Meijers.


Win it: Ecostore USA wants to give one Simple reader a great assortment of their products. To enter this giveaway (retailed at $25), go to Ecostore USA, take a look around, come back here and leave us a comment letting us know which product you would like to try.

Giveaway is open through January 21st, 2008. Random winner will be selected and notified.
