I always have lots of dishes that need washing up in my house, as I am sure a lot of us do. I have seen Ecover washing up liquid but never tried it as I usually stick to the one brand. I was pleased to get some of this to try out and was really interested as to how it would compare to my normal brand.
Ecover is different as it is an environmentally friendly brand, it is made from plant based ingredients which makes it totally biodegradable. This means it gets washed away quickly and does not have any impact on the plant and animal life. They are also good for sensitive skin, which was good news for me as I get really dry sore hands from washing up.
If you are expecting loads of bubbles you will be disappointed. The bubbles you get are sufficient but there are not masses of them. I find this better in a way because with my usual product I can get too many bubbles which can be a nuisance as they can leave a residue on the dishes. With this product there is no residue.
I was sent the Camomile and Marigold variety to try out and I did notice a nice flowery smell when using the product. It is not very strong but it is noticeably there and it is a nice scent. This product also includes whey milk, which is meant to be especially beneficial for sensitive skin. Having been using the product for a while now, I can definitely see a difference in my hands. They are not as dry and sore as they were previously.
One squeeze was sufficient to clean a sink full of dishes and it did the job well, even removing tough grease. It tackled the remains of a Sunday roast with no problems. My dishes were sparkling and my hands were not suffering and it is kind to nature, I really liked this product. Next time I am shopping I would definitely pick this washing up liquid up. The bottle is recyclable making it 100% environmentally friendly. I was impressed as I have used environmentally friendly brands before and found they did not clean as well. This is not the case with Ecover, it does a great job.
Ecover washing up liquid comes in four different fragrances, Camomile and Marigold, Grapefruit and Green Tea, Lemon and Aloe Vera and Pomegranate.
