EcoStore Giveaway!

Spring is here and so is the cleaning, so what better time for a cleaning supply giveaway! I recently received some products from EcoStore USA to try out and I am already a big fan, particularly of their Citrus Cleaning Spray. Way back when we first started preparing for Skyler's arrival I decided I wanted to make a switch in my cleaning supplies. Not only was I concerned about the repercussions of Skyler getting his hands on the household cleaners, but I also didn't like the idea of all the chemicals that might be landing where he ate and played. Prior to receiving these products I had been using a simple Clorox spray, which was good in meeting my desire to not be spraying unknown chemicals onto our homes surfaces. The one complaint I had was that it didn't quite measure up to the task of cleaning through the messes my husband makes in the kitchen and the ones Skyler would make around the house. My coffee table in particular never responded very well to this treatment and more than once I had to go over it several times to get all the yogurt/juice/cracker what have you off of it. Problem solved with this cleaner, which surprised me because I was skeptical that a citrus based cleaner would be able to clean thoroughly and not leave a greasy sheen (which I have encountered with other citrus based cleaners). It works incredibly well and is now my go to cleaner.


I also received their Toilet Cleaner and, for some baby cleaning, their Baby Sleepytime Bath. I wanted the toilet cleaner in particular because I feel that of all the household cleaners we have currently our toilet bowl cleaner is probably the worst offender in it's list of chemicals. Not something I enjoy having lurking under my kitchen sink. I was also pleasantly surprised by how well this product works and am glad to finally have an alternative to the toxic products we used prior. The Sleepytime Bath was also great, it's a liquid not a soap as I had been expecting - but this actually turned out to work quite well. It has a wonderful lavender smell and quite frankly I have been contemplating using it for myself instead of Skyler. He's become more of a shower kind of guy lately anyways.

The great thing about all of these products is that they are all made of very safe ingredients. The labels all stress their motto, No Nasty Chemicals. Something I can appreciate. If you visit their site you can read more about the reasons behind all of their product development as well as see what other products they have to offer. For the purposes of this giveaway though I will be giving away on of the three products I tested out. All you need to do is leave a comment letting me know which one you would like and a week from now (the 29th) I will have Skyler pull the winner's name from a hat. He's very unbiased, I promise. If you want a second chance to enter just link to this giveaway on your own blog and let me know that you did so. Happy Spring!

Baby Sleepytime Bath sounds like a great product.

I would love to try the Lemon RInse Aid. Our dishwasher is not very good and leaves the dishes spotty.

I'd like to try the spray cleanser ... because I have a sticky, crumby, messy but WONDERFUL 15mo. daughter!
Thanks.

I've not heard of their products. As soon as Little Elvis was born, I just started using a white vinegar/water solution. It does a good job, and you can add in essential oils if the smell is too off-putting. It seems to fade after just a few minutes, so I haven't bothered with that yet.
