The Cleaning Crew

A while back on a trip to Costco, I elected to try out some “earth-friendly” laundry detergent. In all honesty, I was not entirely convinced of its naturalness but was more swayed because there was a coupon for it. Many months of laundry loads later I am completely satisfied by its ability to clean my families’ clothes and make them smell spring fresh, the clothes that is. ECOS brand laundry detergent is made of 100% biodegradable and natural materials, isn’t made overseas and is produced by a family business. Since then I have tried out their Dishmate dish detergent, which I also found at Costco, and their bleach alternative, OXO Brite. I have been really impressed by the products I have used so far. The best part is that for a penny-pincher such as myself the products are surprisingly affordable for being earth-friendly. Their pricing even rivals mainstream products. I have tried other pricier earth-friendly products only to be disappointed in either the product’s performance or the steep price — $5 for a bottle of dish detergent — yikes!

According to their website they have won awards and many accolades for their products. If you don’t have a Costco membership check out where else their products are sold using their store locator.
