I opted in requesting the Laundry Detergent because I am on a mission to find my favorite one (AND we go through lot's of detergent in this household). While I still may be on my "quest", something worth mentioning about ecover's Laundry Detergent is it is super concentrated so a little goes a long way (which is nice). And I LOVE the thought of washing my clothes in plant deprived ingredients, knowing I'm having nature help me with my everyday duties. Speaking of which, the nature factor is what allows the detergent to be gentle on skin. It's a great product all around.
Limescale Remover, I about kicked myself in the "ars" wishing I would have taken before and after photos for you guys to see the difference it made! It was unbelievable! It takes care of deposits left on tiles, taps, tubs, showers and sinks. The bottle squirts out a foam, you leave it sit for a minute, scrub and rinse it off, and waa-laa, the work is done!. Easy application and noteworthy results, this product is HIGHLY RECOMMENDED by me. Wouldn't it be nice if ALL limescale removers were this simple and effective?
ecover gives back! they have partnered with "water aid" to help enable communities in Ethiopia access to clean water. furthermore, they DO NOT test on animals! go ecover!
