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!

Evoraplus ~ Probiotic Dental Care Mints ~ Review & Giveaway


dental mints, dental care





As a Mom working on finding more "Me" time, and taking better care of myself, one area I want to improve upon is oral hygiene.  I would love to, for once in my life, be able to tell my hygienist, "YES!  As a matter of fact, I DO floss every day!"

Admittedly, I'm not there yet, but I have recently discovered a fantastic product that not only helps me take care of my pearly-ish whites, but also fits into my crazy, hectic schedule!  Evoraplus! 

Evoraplus is the first name in oral probiotics and is the result of over three decades of research into controlling the balance of good bacteria in dental plaque and is offered by Oragenics, Inc.

dental care products, good bacteria


EvoraPlus™ is a unique probiotic mint that contains the patented beneficial bacteria blend, ProBiora3™. EvoraPlus™ represents a whole new level of oral care, one in which good oral health is supported and maintained with good bacteria – just the way nature intended.

EvoraPlus, dental health
EvoraPlus™ is a revolutionary new application of probiotics, which have traditionally been used to support digestive and immune health. EvoraPlus™ is the first probiotic mint specifically designed for complete oral care. This all-in-one product supports gum and tooth health and naturally freshens breath while gently whitening teeth.

Both my teen daughter and I tried Evoraplus probiotic mints.   They taste fantastic!  We are both continuously on the go and usually don't have time for a mid-day brush up.  I often resort to minty gum to help keep my breath fresh throughout the day.  After two weeks or so, I found that I wasn't needing to reach for my gum as often.  Further, my mouth felt fresher, cleaner.  Similar to that fabulous feeling you have post a trip to the dentist.  My daughter reported similar results.



Daily use of EvoraPlus™ is a fast, easy and effective way to naturally promote oral health and economically replace mouthwashes, tooth whiteners and breath fresheners.

Within 30 days of using EvoraPlus™ twice daily, the natural healthy oral balance of good bacteria will be greatly restored and you will begin to notice a whiter, brighter smile and long-lasting fresh breath.

EvoraPlus for Kids, Dental Care
EvoraKids™ is a tasty, fun new product that includes the ProBiora3 blend of probiotics specifically formulated to meet the unique oral care needs of children. A product that not only tastes GREAT, but can also reach where toothbrushes and floss can’t... for brighter, happier smiles!

Although I suffer from tooth stains, sourced from some antibiotic I was given as a child and no over-the-counter remedies can budge them, my daughter did feel that her smile was brighter, after putting Evoraplus to the test.

Trix Swirls & Penguins of Madagascar DVD Prize Pack Giveaway


Add some comedic intrigue and fruitalicious color to your breakfast routine with this fantastic offer from General Mills and Nickelodeon!
 Trix, Fun Breakfast, Penguins of Madagascar DVD

















In celebration of the launch of the newest zany escapades of The Penguins of Madagascar
Operation: DVD Premiere from Nickelodeon, General Mills is introducing specially marked packages that include collectible Penguin Launchers inside!

Each special package contains one of five character launchers, along with special mission details on the rear panel of the box.  Mission participants include:  Skipper, Rico, Kowalski, Private and King Julien.

Your mission:  to collect each of the five, zany characters to complete your team!  

As a member of MyBlogSpark, I was given an opportunity to review a package of General Mills Trix Fruitalicious Swirls cereal, complete with two penguin launchers, as well as the new Penguins of Madagascar DVD.

Our family has long been fans of General Mills cereals, but we have never tried the Trix Swirl before.  My son loves it!  He asks for it each time we compile a grocery list now!  That's okay with me as I appreciate that Trix is made with whole grains and calcium!

Of course, the Penguins antics on the DVD were also positively received!  As a family, we've thoroughly enjoyed the Madagascar feature films and I was pleased by this newest installment.  Often disappointed with other "adventures" beyond original films, I found Operation: DVD Premiere to be fresh, funny and entertaining.  I was pleased that King Julien, my favorite character, was included in the cast.Kudos to Nickelodeon! 

My son enjoyed carrying out the penguin launcher missions, which are Mom (no mess) friendly and appropriate for a range of ages.
Some examples are:

  • Dive In, Soldier - Set an empty plastic cereal bowl on the table and try to pop your launcher into it. Wear a helmet or you´ll be squid bait.

  • Longest Propulsion Launcher - Challenge your troops to see who can launch their character the furthest. Go long or go back to the zoo.

  • Target Practice - Create a landing zone with a spoon and try to strategically drop your character into the sweet spot. Hit the target or go back to the drawing board.

  • Clear the Wall - Do you have enough projectile pop to push your launcher over the top of the box? Proceed launchin´ troops, earn those wings!
