Review And Giveaway: Eco-Friendly Cleaning Products


Have you thought about "going green" with your cleaning supplies? Have you tossed around the idea of getting "natural" cleansers for your home? And have you (like me!) procrastinated and kept using the chemical-based cleaning products you already have?

Look at these disturbing facts about household products:
  • According to the American Association of Poison Control Centers accidental poisonings occur in the home every 30 seconds.
  • The National Safety Council has reported that more children under four die of from accidental poisoning than are killed by guns.
  • A report by the EPA to Congress determined household cleaners three times more likely to cause cancer than outdoor air pollution. (wow!)
  • Women who work from home and are more frequently exposed to household toxins and poor air quality are 50% more likely to develop cancer. (YIKES!)
  • Newborn infants have trace levels of toxic chemicals in their bodies, passed on by their mother’s exposure. (sad. freaking sad!)
I did not know these facts before I read about them on the Ecostore USA website. After reading them, and learning more about what products are truly "green and safe" as compared to what those 'big name brands' will often tout as 'green' but are not really, I am upset. Not so much with the manufacturers of all those unsafe cleaning products, but with myself. How much have I exposed my kids to with the household products around my house??

So I am truly grateful to Eco store for asking me to review their products. I have learned so much, and have changed my ways! I just regret not being more proactive about "Green Cleaning" sooner!

No Nasty Chemicals™ is the foundation of the entire product line and philosophy of Eco -Store. Take a look at this video from their website-




I received the Citrus Spray Cleaner and the Creme Cleanser to review. The ingredients in the Citrus Spray Cleaner are:

  • D-Limonene (from citrus)
  • Palm and coconut based non-ionic and anionic surfactants
  • Fatty acid derivative
  • Ethanol
  • Filtered water
And the Creme Cleanser uses only plant-based ingredients:

  • Water
  • Calcium carbonate (chalk)
  • Plant based anionic surfactants
  • Plant based glycerine
  • Plant base thickener
  • Xanthum gum
  • Lemon verbena oil
I specifically wanted to review the cream cleanser because I have a glass stove top that is so hard to keep clean and not scratched! I am always trying to find a product for it, and had yet to find one that really worked well. can be used everywhere from the bathroom to the stovetop. I found the creme cleanser was not at all gritty (just as promised,) and was gentle on my stove top. And I am happy to say I am in love with this stuff. Really, in love!

The spray cleaner was equally as impressive to me. I used it on my kitchen counters, bathroom counters, sinks and bathtub. I loved the shine it left (from the citrus, I'm guessing!), and the lack of "chemical" smell!!

I am so happy with these natural cleaning products, and I am so going to be buying more. Eco Store also offers baby products, hair products, pet products and bath and body products. Each of their over 100 products meets the most stringent environmental and sustainability standards. The guiding principle of every formulation is and will always be that the end product must not only be good for the user, but good for the planet.

And now is a perfect time to shop at Ecostore because they are having a

"Share the Love Holiday Sale"

and ALL of their plant and mineral based products are 40% off for the rest of the year. Plus there is free shipping on orders over $25.
