EcoMom: Green Cleaning Review

Cleaning our homes. For many mom's that is one of the least enjoyable jobs about being a mom. I know it's not for me. One reason is the products. Many of the cleaning products on the market are harsh smelling with loads of chemicals and tend to do a number on my skin, not to mention I am likely inhaling gross fumes.

Recently I had the opportunity to review three wonderful products, all available at Ecomom, and I can't wait to tell you all about them.

About Ecomom:

Ecomom has over 2,000 healthy, smart and safe products for moms and families - from baby gear and strollers to lip gloss and sunscreen and more! All ecomom approved product selections are safer, smarter, and healthier options to conventional products on the market.

Bon Ami Dish Soap:

Bon Ami Dish Soap was created with the same emphasis on gentle effectiveness as the original powders. Read through the ingredients – right there on the bottle – and you’ll see there is nothing in the Dish Soap that will harm the environment either inside or outside your home. The all-natural ingredients are tough on greasy dish soils, but gentle on the skin, and will never contain phosphates or chlorine.

Because the ingredient list is short and natural, the Dish Soap may separate in cooler temperatures. Should that happen, simply give the bottle a quick shake. And take a notice of the bottles: made from 100% post-consumer recycled plastics, some batches may look foggy, others crystal clear. Bon Ami knows users will prefer the peace of mind of good stewardship over high-tech perfection.

Bon Ami Dish Soap is available in a Free + Clear version that has no added scent. And now Bon Ami offers a version scented with natural essential oils. This fragrance, Tangerine Thyme, is a delightful fusion of mandarin orange, tangerine, orange, thyme, and clove.

The new Bon Ami products walk their talk with recycled and recyclable packaging. The new labels are bold interpretations of the classic red banner and Bon Ami’s famous just-hatched chick.

Ingredients: Water, Biodegradable cleaning agents (alkyl polyglucoside and potassium alkanoate), Epson Salts, Citric acid, pH adjuster (sodium metasilicate pentahydrate), Biodegradable preservative (methyl isothiazonlinone and methyl chloro isothiazolinone)

My Review:

I was sent a sample that worked for one dish washing session, but what a great product. A very pleasant smell, Bon Ami Dish Soap left no residue and rinsed off very well. If you are looking for a great green alternative to traditional dish soap, I recommend Bon Ami products.

Twist Loofa Scrubby:

We cook a lot, so we clean up a lot. Sometimes it's an easy job, like a sandwich plate or a soup pot. But when we bake a lasagna or a glazed ham, it's time for the Loofah Scrubby. It's got sponge on the inside, and super scrubby loofah on the outside. It's also all-natural and dye free. Which means it's tough on goop, but gentle on the planet. 

My Review:

Okay, this is my new favorite cleaning tool when it comes to washing pots! It works like a charm with very little effort! And the biggest benefit, it doesn't scratch my stainless steel pots because it is so soft. Unlike other scrubbers out there, you don't have to worry about also scratching up your hands or getting chemicals all over them when you do dishes, because its completely dye free and all natural! Another great product from Twist and EcoMom!

CleanWell Individual Hand Sanitizer Wipes:

1 Box of Individual Wipes - 20 wipes per box CleanWell Natural Hand Sanitizing Wipes - Made with Ingenium, a patented formulation of essential plant oils proven to kill 99.99% of the harmful germs that can make you sick. Convenient individual wipes make saying goodbye to germs and dirt as simple as 1, 2, 3 - tear open, unfold and wipe over hands (or face, or bum, or anywhere else you don't want to spray). A better way to clean hands. 

Each box contains 20 Individual Wipes. 

My Review:

These are the perfect hand sanitizer for the mom on the run (and what mom isn't these days!). They fit great in diaper bags, backpacks, purses and in your vehicle glove compartment. Made with all natural ingredients there is no worries that your child will be ingesting harmful stuff, and perfect for those with allergies to fragrence, as these have none. A great product that I highly recommend!
