ecoSTORE USA review

Ever since I did my first ecoSTORE USA review, I've been a fan of their products. Not only are they eco-friendly and made here in good old Michigan, they actually work well!

In fact, if you take a peek in my cleaning cupboards

or in my bathroom closet

you'll see that I buy a lot of the stuff when they run their great "double your order plus free shipping" sale. There are a few things, like the bar soaps, the toilet cleaner and the automatic dishwasher powder, that I don't want to run out of.

So, being a fan, of course I jumped on the opportunity to review a couple products when it was offered to me recently. I was given the improved toilet cleaner and also the glass cleaner to try.

My box arrived just in time. I had made homemade mango salsa and my stove top was a nightmare. I decided I'd really put the glass cleaner to the test.

Pardon the photos. The lighting in my kitchen combined with black granite and stainless steel means I can't take excellent, clear photos. I think you can tell that the stove top is a LOT cleaner after, though.



The glass cleaner smells like plain old vinegar, and I usually use a mix of vinegar and water for glass cleaning. I am not sure this worked any better than the vinegar and water, to be honest, but I can say that without a doubt, the ecoSTORE glass cleaner did the job and did it well. That's more than can be said for all the other glass cleaners out there that I've tried, especially any of those dumb BLUE ones. They all leave awful streaks and smell horrible. I don't even want to THINK about what's in them. I love that I can give the ecoSTORE stuff to my six-year-old when he's doing his chores, and I don't have to worry if he gets it on his hands while he's cleaning.

My bathroom was in pretty sad shape, too, so I was able to use the glass cleaner in there as well as the toilet cleaner.

I'm not sure what was improved about the toilet cleaner, but it's in a bigger bottle and it still works great! LOVE that stuff!

I'll spare you a before photo of the bathroom, but it sure was sparkling clean AFTER!

In a house with me and three men, one of which is a two-year-old Mess Master, we need plenty of glass cleaner and toilet cleaner. I am thrilled to have found an eco-friendly version of each that does its job well.

The next ecoSTORE thing I plan to try out is the baby moisturizer, but not for my babies. For me! I've heard great things about it. Honestly, I'll probably end up trying out everything they offer, since I've been happy with all the items I've used so far.

ecoSTORE USA products can be found at Meijer stores, or online.
