Ecover Sunny Day Laundry Detergent Review


As a mother of 2 small children, I needed a change in laundry detergent. The “commercial” products are filled with harmful chemicals that can seep into your skin through your clothing. So, I took www.naturallysavvy.com's offer to review Ecover Sunny Day Laundry Detergent
This laundry detergent is amazing! Most commercial brands claim to wash Large loads of laundry as well as MANY MANY loads. They come with HUGE cups attached to the tops, so we aren’t actually using it the way it’s stated. They WANT you to use more, so you have to buy MORE. Not with Ecover. They have a tiny little lid that keeps you from overusing.
I was hesitant that such a small bit of this liquid will clean my kids messy clothes. They are always playing in dirt or spilling food on themselves. When I pulled the very first load out, I took a look at them AND was surprised. It cleaned them BETTER than a commercial brand would. WITHOUT all the harmful chemicals. AMAZING! Right?
The laundry detergent bottle that I reviewed was a 51 ounce bottle. The liquid is 2.5x concentrated, so I am using less than commercial products and saving my children and myself from being harmed. I love this. The bottle is also made from 100% plantplastic. So- the bottle is also able for recycling. GREAT company!!
This bottle is easy to store, easy to hold, easy to open, and holds the right amount for about a month (OR MORE) of clothes washing. I WASHED loads and loads of laundry and still have some of this left. I am truly amazed.
Also- I love that my clothes come out of the wash smelling absolutely incredible. AND they aren’t even using chemically induced fragrances to get this smell. It DOES smell like a warm sunny day.
This keeps my colored clothes bright- no fading, no stains still on clothes. The ingredients are mineral and plant based, which no mom could ever pass up for the health of their children as well as our state of mind.
It MAY seem expensive when buying this- I am a deal buyer. I try and try to buy things that I have a coupon for or that is on sale. This laundry liquid can be bought on Amazon.com 9.80 a bottle. BUT this small bottle washes 50+ loads of laundry. When you divide it up- it is basically only $.19 per load.
This Ecover laundry detergent did work just as well or even better than Tide did. It’s septic tank safe, so I don’t have to worry about chemicals inside the tank. It’s better overall for my children health as well as Adam and I. I was very impressed with this.
