It’s a new month so we are trialling a few new product in our house. Each product thus far has recieved light usage so can’t speak of anything conclusively.
First up we bought an Ecoegg. These strange plastic egg shaped things are used to replace washing detergent. We purchased a 54 wash egg which supposedly lasts an average family 3 months. We opted for one with less washes incase one of us had an allergic reaction (thankfully we all seem good).
After the first wash we were a little unsure, our clothes didn’t smell dirty, but they didn’t exactly smell like lavender either. Regardless we stuck with it and the second load smelled much better. We assumed that the water dissolvable lining that was in the Ecoegg took a little time to break down in the first cycle. Since then we’ve been extremely happy, and the Ecoegg even seems to take on our cloth nappies well.
We’ve begun the process of swapping out certain mainstays of the house with more ecofriendly products. This month we’ve picked up a lavender hand-wash and camomile & clementine washing up liquid.
Both of these have impressed us, they smell fantastic, they lather well, and particularly the washing up liquid, seems like it will go a long way.
While these products typically cost a little more than the “standard” counterparts, we picked them up while on offer in Waitrose.
The final products that we’ve picked up this month were the E-Cloth general purpose cloth, and washing up pad.
The general cloth seems good, we just wet it and off it goes. The wash pad is actually amazing. The cloth side does wonders on dried on foods, while the non-scratch scouring side has got my cast iron pans cleaner than they’ve ever been.
That is all for the February update, I’ll see you all again at the round up!
