"Clean" up your cleaning with EcoStoreUSA

It's been a long road trying to switch our family over to the organic, all-natural, non-toxic house. We're not there yet, but step by step we get closer.

For household cleaning, I have relied on vinegar/water solutions and baking powder for scouring. Generally speaking, this works. However, sometimes I want a little something more - a little more power so I can use less elbow grease!

EcoStoreUSA two of their newest products to test out in my home. I received the plant based Glass Cleaner, which is basically a vinegar/water solution like I use, but also contains a simple glucose. Definitely worked on my mirrors and glass shower door, as I knew it would, since I've been using vinegar for some time. The spray bottle gives the solution a powerful kick, and the glucose must add a little something to the mix, because I do prefer the EcoStore version over my own solution.

I also tried the Toilet Cleaner which has a light tangy scent of pine because it includes pine oil; it reminded me of my parent's house because they used pine cleaner all the time. I like the smell, and I like that it doesn't linger very long after you clean; that is one mark of a "clean" cleaner to me, if the air does not smell chemically after you're done cleaning! The toilet cleaner worked great, although I still needed a scouring powder to remove the ring the water line leaves (we have some kind of water buildup problem!). EcoStore does carry a cream cleanser I bet would work well on this spot!

I feel confident using EcoStore's plant based products, and if you're wondering what this company is all about - here's more info:
