Hello, my name is Juli. I am 27 yrs old. I am currently a Engaged mother & I have 1 child of my own, he is 3 & his name is Shane I also have a step son named Skyler, he is 10. I made a blog site so I can review different products such as food, toys, clothes, make-up, etc from different companies. I love to try out different things that's why I made a blog site so as I was saying I would love to have the opportunity to try different stuff from different companies. I am reviewing different stuff as it comes along in the mail. I think it's a great idea & that way I can refer people to buy your stuff in return & get your product out there. I would love the opportunity to do this if you would let me review some of your products of choice or something that I would like vise versa.

Ecover Dish Detergent & Hand Soap

A little about Ecover's History and Products..
(Coming straight from www.ecover.com)

While we're dying to give you all the juicy details of our 30 year history, we know the real reason you're here:

You've got loads of dirty laundry.
The windows could use a wash.
And the dishwasher is full.

Maybe you're thinking you need the crazy chemicals to really get the job done, but we know how to do it with powerful plant-based and mineral ingredients.  Give us your worst and we'll give you our best - state of the art, clean-running factories that churn out terrific cleansers.  That's the heart of our business.

The Mission:

Ecover offers efficient and sustainable solutions for the hygienic needs of people today and future generations.

It might sound idealistic.  Heck, it definitely does, but we've been at this for over thirty years now, and we still haven't lost sight of our guiding principles.  We think they keep us young and focused:

Respect, Integrity and Commitment.

We know these qualities aren't that unusual, or even exciting, for a person to strive towards.  But, for a business to zero in on these traits, and keep them top of mind in all their choices, be they manufacturing, formulation, or beyond makes for a special sort of work-place.

We're not keeping it internal though.  
Our Vision extends outward, to contribute to creating economical, ecological and social change within society, for the future of us all (we've got to dream big!

For more information on products, what they are made from, what they are bottled in, please visit Ecover.

Ecover sent me two products to review.
The first, 16 oz Dishwashing Liquid

The crisp scent of Grapefruit and Green Tea is the winning combination behind this plant-based Dish Liquid.  One squirt is plenty for a sink full of dishes and the gentle formulation means no excessive sudsing.

(I did notice that there weren't many suds from either product I received!) 

 Personal benefits:
  • suitable for sensitive skin
  • cleans and degreases
  • fresh plant based fragrance
  • contains green tea extract, known for its deodorizing properties
Environmental benefits:
  • made with plant based and mineral ingredients
  • fast and complete biodegradability
  • minimum impact on aquatic life
  • no animal testing 
  • safe for septic tanks
Instructions for use:
One squeeze is enough for a sink full of dirty dishes. Effectively cleans without excessive bubbles.

Packaging material:

  • Aqua
  • Sodium Laureth Sulfate
  • Lauryl Polyglucose

Pros: Little suds, powerful soap, good at getting messes clean. Great Smell

Would I recommend?  Comparing to more chemical dish soap, I think Dawn does a better job than this product, though this product is better for the environment! so its 50/50!
