ECOVER ~ Green Solutions for your home ~ Review & Giveaway

green cleaning products, ecofriendly, Mom tips




This summer has been a season of exploration for me.  Not only have I been exploring to re-discover myself, I've also been challenging my family to go more GREEN.  Our newest endeavor is to convert our household cleaning products to green alternatives.  Needless to say, I was excited to test an ECOVER product!

powered by nature, green products, ecofriendly cleaners

ECOVER, originally founded in Belgium in 1980, has been a fore runner in the push to offer green products.  They initially developed and marketed a phosphate-free washing powder and have grown to become the world's largest producer of green cleaning products.  ECOVER promotes ecological responsibility in all facets of it's organization, from the products it markets to the ECOVER production facilities.

To celebrate their thirty year anniversary, ECOVER is launching a contest this fall to find and recognize individuals who share their passion for protecting the environment and living responsibly.  You can find out more about the contest and how you can nominate deserving individual at the ECOVER website.

green cleaning, ecofriendly household products
ECOVER offers a full line of green products, from dishwashing to laundry products, household cleaners and even a line of personal care products.  Need a green solution for washing your car or boat?  ECOVER has you covered!


I was given the opportunity to test ECOVER's All-purpose cleaner.
My home has a tremendous amount of tile.  Tremendous.  Combine that with one dog, two cats and two kids, and you have a Mom who is constantly fighting the clean floor battle. After my first test, I was left wondering what on earth took me so long to make the switch!

ECOVER, lemon scented floor cleaner, green products


When you use traditional floor cleaner, even when the manufacturer's try to disguise the horrible chemical aroma with various floral or citrus scents, you're left reeling from the fumes.  You know the eye twitching, watering, scrunched up face, inevitable headache producing smell I'm talking about.  None of that with ECOVER!  Quite to the contrary, fresh, lemonly and clean!  No eye watering or face scrunching necessary.

The clean from ECOVER's All-purpose cleaner was top-notch!  No residue, no streaks...just a nice, fresh clean.  I highly recommend it!

My family is going green by trying to recycle more, and we do this by recycling newspapers, magazines & mail at the local school. This also benefits the school because they receive money for people recycling.
