EcoSTORE USA is the American outlet for www.ecostore.co.nz, a New Zealand company known for making plant-based, non-toxic household cleaning, baby and personal care products for over twenty years. I love the simplicity of their credo: No Nasty Chemicals™. I've been even more thoughtful about what I use to clean our home and dishes since having kids so when I read about EcoSTORE USA on Maggie's blog (she is , I was curious to try some products out.
I chose the Auto Dishwash Powder and Natural Lemon Rinse Aid because I've been using my dishwasher more regularly lately and it seems like "normal" detergents and rinse agents are full of toxic, caustic ingredients. EcoSTORE's Auto Dishwash Powder, on the other hand, is a blend of simple mineral salts, citrus and coconut oils. Much nicer!
Even better, the Auto Dishwash Powder cleans beautifully– even without prerinsing. (Don't tell my mom!) I was also very pleased with the Natural Lemon Rinse Aid. Most of the traditional store brands are frighteningly blue and poisonous looking, smelling strongly of chemical fragrance. EcoSTORE's Natural Lemon Rinse Aid is made from plant based non-ionic surfactants, citric acid and water. It leaves a lovely scent of natural lemon verbena in the kitchen as your dishes dry. Ahhh.
EcoSTORE USA offers a wide range of products, from body and skincare to household cleaners, babycare and pet items. Find them on Twitter and Facebook, too.
