Ecover All Purpose Cleaner Review

I really don’t enjoy cleaning.  With a husband and three kids, I do a lot of that.  Even though cleaning isn’t one of my top choices to spend my day, I always get excited about new cleaning products.  I know, it sounds strange.
“Ecover stands for careful enterprise. This means that we produce our washing and cleaning products in an ecological, economic and socially responsible way in a unique ecological factory”.

Ecover All Purpose Cleaner

Surfactants are found in most cleaning supplies and the way that they are produced, they do not completely biodegrade because they are produced from petrochemicals.  Ecover replaces these ingredients using plant-based and mineral ingredients making their cleaners more eco-friendly and even better for your own skin.  The bottles and caps that their cleaners comes in are both made from recycled materal and can also be recycled again together.  Ecover has just about any kind of cleaner that you can think of from dishwashing, laundry, household and even personal care (hand soaps).
I was given the opportunity to try one of Ecover’s cleaners and was sent a bottle of their All Purpose Cleaner.  The All Purpose Cleaner is lemon scented and it’s a great scent.  I usually don’t like lemon scents very well but this cleaner has a great scent.  It isn’t overpowering at all and it leaves a clean scent after using it.  The bottle of cleaner that I recieved is a concentrated solution.  You don’t have to use much of the cleaner either.  I only had to use a couple capfuls of the cleaner in my mop bucket.  I used almost 2 gallons of water and I was very pleased with how well it cleaned my kitchen floor.  

Final thoughts…

The All Purposed Cleaner is safe for all washable surfaces so I bought a spray bottle and mixed some of the cleaner with water and use it for my counter tops.  It really does cut through grease and grime as it claims.  In my honest opinion, I think this works better than most other household cleaners that I have used. 
  • Fast and complete biodegradability
  • Minimum impact on aquatic life
  • Safe for septic tanks
  • No animal testing
  • Fresh plant based fragrance
Ingredients include Water, non-ionic surfactants, fatty acid, alcohol, citrate, lactic acid, glyceryl caprylate, fragrance (lemon)
Overall, I am really happy with Ecover’s All Purpose Cleaner.  I found that it works better than most other cleaners that I have used and this cleaner can replace a few cleaners by using just this one!  I love that these products are made in an ecological factory and are made from plant-based and mineral ingredients.  You still need to keep the cleaner away from children.  There isn’t anything that I don’t like about this cleaner.  I love everything about it!
Ecological and “powered by nature”
