Ecover Review & Giveaway


Cleaning...not a word that's easy for me to put into practice. I'm kind of like the Fonz when he would apologize, "I'm ssss...I'm soooo...I'm sss.sss.sss... You know what I'm saying." You can hear me saying, "I'm going to cle...clea...I'm going to make the bathroom look better than it did."

Thanks to Ecover, cleaning my bathroom was superbly easy! I used their Bathroom Cleaner Spray. What a nice foamer and fragrance. I expected the usual wet spray when it came out, but it actually foamed. Not being sure what to expect, I started to wipe away. Holy Cow!!
My test to see if a cleaner works, how much elbow grease I need to apply, and how long I have to wait is the hardened toothpaste. Now, being the good review I am, I made sure my boys left their dropped toothpaste blobs on the counter. They're so helpful and left them in quite a few spots. It's good to have the support of my family. I digress...

I didn't have to wait at all for the Bathroom Cleaner to work. The toothpaste came up right away. Then I remembered my hairspray spot. There's a spot that typically takes 2-3 attempts from my previous cleaner to get the hairspray layer off. I kid you not, it came off with one just spray shot. And I didn't even let it sit there longer than it took me to get my Skoy Cloth wet and start wiping.

From the bathroom sink, I headed to the huge mirror to see if it'd be a streaky cleaner. Not at all. My mirror came out clean as a whistle. Headed to the toilet, which is so fun to clean with 2 boys whose aim leaves a bit to be desired! I can tell you, the Bathroom Cleaner makes my job so much easier! I don't know if it's because of the foaming or the ingredients in the mix, but it works. That in turn makes my cleaning get done quicker...thank goodness! Not having to spray over and over and getting the cleaning done in one spray makes me a happy cleaner!
