Blog Review: Ecover Liquid Concentrate Laundry Detergent Sunny Day

I recently discovered Ecover Laundry Liquid 2.5X concentrate Sunny Day through NaturallySavvy.com.  It is a great everyday laundry detergent.   The most exciting part is that it is made by a trusted name, Ecover AND it is a totally green laundry detergent that works!  I try where ever I can to use natural products in my home and laundry detergent is no exception.  I am so particular about my clothes though, that I have been hesitant to use a "natural" or green laundry detergent.  

I always worried that my clothes would not be as clean, or as bright, or worse, that the stains would not come out.  You know, the things we all worry about. In the past it was always a tough choice, either you went "green" and nothing was as clean and bright or you used the standard commercially based detergents and felt guilty all the time and worried about he chemicals.  

 I found that Ecover Laundry Liquid 2.5X concentrate Sunny Day works really well on my clothes as well as my family's clothes. It gets my gym clothes fresh and clean too--that is a feat unto itself since I work out really hard in my boot camp classes.

 I like that it works with my HE machine and has a fresh, light fragrance.   Plus the Ecover site says that it is packaged in an innovative, 100% PlantPlastic bottle.  The bottles cut out the need for petrochemicals and are 100% Recyclable and 100% Renewable.  They are actually made from responsibly harvested sugarcane! Isn't that super?  The other  neat part about Ecover Laundry Liquid is that you use so little to get your clothes clean. It really is super concentrated. Check this out: 

1 cap = approx. 1 fl oz
 HE-machine Standard
Medium loads  1 fl oz  1.5 fl oz
Large loads or Heavily soiled medium loads  1.5 fl oz  2.5 fl oz

  • HE compatible
  • keeps colors bright
  • tackles tough stains
  • fresh fragrance from plant-based ingredients
  • no chlorine
  • no phosphates
  • no optical brighteners
  • biodegradable
  • suitable for septic tanks
  • not tested on animals
I recommend you give Ecover Liquid Laundry Concentrate a try.   If you don't like scent, they have a "Zero" version with no scent.  There is also a powder formulation if that is your preference as well.

I was provided with a free sample of Ecover Liquid Laundry Concentrate through NaturallySavvy.com.  However, all opinions are my own.
