I was very fortunate to have the chance to try out and review some green products from EcoStoreUSA. These products used to only be available in New Zealand – but not anymore! These wonderful products are now available right here in the United States for our use!
Not only do they have many products to choose from for all your household needs — but they have cleaners available that are perfect for cloth diapering households! (And baby’s with sensitive skin!) Before I discuss with you the products – let me tell you a little bit about EcoStoreUSA.
(Snippets taken from their website, as to not forget any vital information about this wonderful company.)
Ecostore NZ was founded more than 15 years ago by Melanie and Malcolm Rands from their home in an eco village in New Zealand.
All of the families that lived in the farm based eco village shared a commitment to organic growing and healthy living, making this an ideal environment in which a young, environmentally conscious business could thrive. Each household in the village was responsible for their own waste water, which quickly highlighted the problems caused by using regular supermarket cleaning products that relied heavily on cheap, petroleum-based, synthetic ingredients.
Faced with the challenge of protecting the pristine rural waterways of the eco village, Malcolm Rands began to research and seek expert help from scientists to develop household cleaning products using plant-based ingredients that would biodegrade safely and quickly. Achieving his goal, he eliminated the need to use toxic chemicals, leaving the eco villages water pure. His goal was more than accomplished as the product line of this home-based business began to grow, and an exciting future began to unfold.
Not only is EcoStoreUSA dedicated to high-quality products, but they are also dedicated to making sure that it is affordable for families across the nation.
Pure Oxygen Laundry Whitener ($12.00 – Purchase)
Sometimes cloth diapers get stains. Well – would you expect any less? But just because they get stains doesn’t mean you’re destined to live with diaper stains. The Pure Oxygen Laundry Whitener helps brighten and whiten your laundry naturally.
To prep my diapers – I pre-rinsed them twice to rid of any excess residue from the diaper pail and then filled the washer with warm (not hot, nor cold) water. I added 3 tablespoons of the Pure Oxygren Laundry Whitener and I let soak for an hour.
Upon the hour’s passing, I emptied the washer of it’s excess water and ran a spin-rinse.
Natural Non-Toxic Laundry Liquid ($11.00 – Purchase)
I then started my laundry as normal with the Natural Non-Toxic Laundry Liquid – which smells absolutely delightful. (It has a eucalyptus smell – so very fresh, in my opinion!) I added 5 tablespoons of the laundry liquid for my full-load, which I found to be the most ideal amount.
The garage smelled soooo wonderful with the scent this natural laundry detergent gave off. I just knew my diapers were getting clean. After the usual washing – I did a re-rinse to remove any suds and then I did the big smell test. Nothing. It smelled like nothing. (And how wonderful that was!)
The problems I have found with other detergents is that they often leave perfumes and other residue on the diapers themselves – which also happens to trap in stink particles. The Laundry liquid from EcoStoreUSA washed completely clean.
Both products from EcoStoreUSA work very well – and I feel confident that when I am using them I am not using any harsh chemicals or dyes against my baby’s skin. It effectively washed my daughter’s cloth diapers as well as kept them fresh-smelling, free from any harsh perfumes!
If you are looking for a natural cloth diaper cleaner, then I recommend trying out these products from EcoStoreUSA — definitely.
These two products aren’t the only cloth diaper friendly items they carry! Feel free to check out:
- Wool Wash ($8.50 – Purchase)
- Nappy Balm ($10.00 – Purchase)
Although I received these products without charge, it in no way altered my testing on the product and/or review.
