I don’t mind cleaning, honestly I don’t – it’s tidying up that drives me round the twist. I’m working on getting Ben and Chloe to be a bit tidier and to be more responsible for their own mess – putting away clothes and shoes, tidying toys away when they’ve finished with them, but cleaning is very much my job in our house (and I certainly won’t complain as it means Dave does all the cooking and he’s far more skilled at that than I am!)
I am generally pretty loyal to my cleaning products – they are tried and tested, I like the way they work and the way they smell. It’s not often I’m tempted to try something new so when I was offered the chance to try the Eco2Life range it had quite a lot to live up to.
I was sent four products:
* Eco2Life Multi – Surface Cleaner
* Eco2Life Glass Cleaner
* Eco2Life Bath and Shower Cleaner
* Eco2Life Floor Cleaner
So basically a cleaner to cover pretty much every eventuality!
I really like the idea of the spray bottles being reusable, whilst I’m aware of the need to be more caring of our environment it’s not generally at the forefront of my mind. I recycle but mainly because my local council forces me to, I probably would be too lazy otherwise (shameful I know). So if nothing else the lack of packaging will take up less room in my already over full bins! Once you’ve made the initial purchase of the Eco2Life Starter Kit for £2.49 each (this is the spray bottle and cleaning fluid) you just reuse the spray bottles and buy “Small Wonders Refills” which are just tiny 50ml bottles and cost £1.49 each – this is considerably cheaper than most of my usual products even when they are on offer!
The products are really easy to make up – basically just pour the cleaning fluid into the bottle, top up with water and give it a good shake. No drama there! I like the spray bottles having nozzles which can be turned on and off, they are easy to spray and release a good amount of product with each spritz. The fragrance is the same across the range of products which I liked as it meant you wouldn’t have competing fragrances around the home. Its a really nice clean, fresh smell which lasts. If’ I’m honest I probably prefer the scent of my usual cleaning product but that’s just me being fussy.
Eco2Life Multi-Surface Cleaner
I generally stick to one multi-surface cleaner for most of my jobs – cleaning the kitchen surfaces, the cupboards, the sink, the dining room table, the bathroom . . . (of course the list goes on).
I wasn’t disappointed by this cleaner, it did the job. I didn’t have to scrub at anything just sprayed it on, wiped it off and the surfaces were clean and no smears either!
Eco2Life Glass Cleaner
I hate cleaning windows. They always seem to look worse when I’ve finished than they did when I started! I was pretty impressed with the glass cleaner – the array of sticky finger prints on my living room window wiped off with minimal effort and it was pretty streak free!
Eco2Life Bath & Shower Cleaner
Our bathroom is mainly tiled so there’s plenty of wiping down to do in here! Again I was pleasantly surprised by how well the product cleaned the bath, sink and tiles without too much effort on my part. No scrubbing required!
Eco2Life Floor Cleaner
With two small children and a dog our laminate flooring takes quite a hammering. It really doesn’t matter how much I hoover and mop it never stays clean for more than a few minutes so I get through floor cleaner like nobody’s business. I like a spray cleaner (as opposed to a diluted liquid in a bucket job) and thought this was really effective. My floor looked great (till I let Thomas back in!).
Over all I’m pretty impressed with this range and as they are cheaper than my usual products I have to say I’m inclined to keep using them!
