Although we are a Charlie’s Soap loving household; they are hard to come by. We usually have to order it online. So when we run out and need a laundry detergent; we turn to Ecover’s Ecological Delicate Wash Laundry Wash. It’s gentle on the planet but tough on cleaning. We even wash our cloth diapers in Ecover (with Bac-Out by Biokleen). LIke Seventh Generation, Ecover is a well known Environmentally friendly company that stands on its brand reputation. What we love about Ecover is that its relatively affordable for a family on a budget (like us) and its wide availability. It used to be available in the Natural and Organic section at our local grocer. Since our move to South Florida; we do have to trek to Whole Foods, but it’s worth it. We like to browse the bulk aisle while we are there.
Reasons to Love Ecover Delicate Wash
- It’s good on fragile materials like silk and wool. Great to wash wool covers with.
- No petrochemical ingredients. Only plant based ingredients which reduces our dependence on petroleum
- No phosphates or brighteners (Not necessary to get clothes clean; I can assure you)
- Cruelty Free
- Ecover is a trusted brand for green and natural products. (No Greenwashing here)
Should I mention how good it smells. Very fresh but not overpowering. I really dig it. Ecover delicate wash is suitable for both top and front loading machines.
