EcoStore USA Product Review

.
I've been pretty big into only using natural, non-toxic cleaning products in my home for the last 10 years.  I remember cleaning my shower with traditional shower cleaning spray and immediately after using it coming down with cold-like symptoms.  I don't know for sure, but it was like I was having a reaction to all the harsh chemicals in the product.  With so many high quality, earth friendly cleaning products now, I see no reason to bring all of those chemicals into my house.
.
I was recently contacted by EcoStore USA to review two of their products.  I happily said yes. 
.
.
Here's a little bit about EcoStore USA:
.
"Ecostore NZ was founded more than 15 years ago by Melanie and Malcolm Rands from their home in an eco village in New Zealand.
.
Our eco friendly household cleaning products are as effective as the leading supermarket brands, and our body and baby care ranges are gentle on your skin and are simply beautiful to use. Our hand and body washes are made from naturally derived ingredients that gently cleanse, condition and nourish your skin. All of our products are made from plant- and mineral-based ingredients, free of toxic chemicals, that bring people closer to nature with non-toxic, environmentally safe solutions that also help to reduce our carbon footprint."
.
.
The first product I tried was the laundry powder.  It is a plant and mineral based concentrate product.  Because it's a concentrate, I only needed a tiny amount of powder to clean a huge load of towels.  The towels came out clean and fresh.  It feels good to know that no nasty chemicals were deposited from the detergent to these towels.
.
.
Unfortunately, EcoStore wasn't able to help me fold the towels....
.
.
I don't know why, but folding towels is one of my most hated household chores!
.
Next up, I used the Auto Dishwash Powder in my dishwasher to clean a load of dishes. 
.
My dishes all came out all nice and clean.
.
.
The powder is a  is a high performance blend of simple mineral salts, citrus and coconut oils.  It did a great job of washing my dishes.
.
In addition to their Household cleaners, Ecostore offers a wide range of products, including Bath & Body products, Baby Care, and even Pet Care products
.
You can keep up with all the latest EcoStore USA news by following them on Facebook and Twitter.  
.
Thank you EcoStore USA for having me review your products!

I had similar respiratory symptoms when I used conventional cleaning products. I like to clean so I was using those products a lot! I went through about 6 months of allergy testing trying to figure out why I couldn't kick a nasty chest infection. Finally, my allergist suggested the switch and I have been free ever since!

I've been wanting to make the switch over and have done a few minor swaps but not taken the full plunge. I think I may have to try some of these out too. Thanks!

I too have had similar respiratory symptoms after using regular cleaning products! I started using baking soda to clean with. I would like to give EcoStore USA a try. I'll check them out! Thanks for the review!

Glad it did a great job in your dishwasher. That is the last of my non-green cleaners because I did not find a natural one that did not leave them dirty. Maybe this will be the answer since hand-washing is not an option.
