I’m not one to sing the praises of a cleaning product. I don’t particularly enjoy doing housework, so as long as it’s done that’s usually good enough for me. But that all changed recently when I bought a package of Ecover dishwasher powder because the store was out of my usual (locally made, environmentally friendly) brand. I was totally surprised by how well it worked. I’ve always been pretty happy with how clean my usual brand got the dishes, but my old scratched glassware has never been this shiny.
Dare I say it? I love this stuff! How much of a loser am I?!
So why am I telling you this? Because I wanted you to know that if you were ever tempted to switch to an eco-friendly detergent but didn’t because you thought it wouldn’t work as well as what you’re using now, then this is the one for you. I will probably go back to my usual brand when this box runs out (you know, that whole “buy local” thing – Ecover is based in California), but I will have fond memories of these days filled with shiny glasses and sparkling flatware.
