EcoStore USA Detergent Review & $25 GC Giveaway (2/21)

Natural high performance laundry powder from Ecostore USA


As you may recall from my review of their Dish Powder, EcoStore USA has the slogan “No Nasty Chemicals” which both catches my interest and assures me that they only use what is best for my family’s health. I had the opportunity to review their Front Loader Laundry Powder (also available in regular Laundry Powder) which comes in a recyclable cardboard container.  Each box averages about 32 regular HE loads of laundry, however, would be 64-128 loads of cloth diapers depending on whether you use ½ or a ¼ of the amount of detergent with your cloth diapers (or the ratio you find to work best with your machine and type of water for this particular brand of detergent).

This detergent is based mainly on plant-derived ingredients and also contains sodium percarbonate, an oxygen producing whitener that also has disinfecting properties commonly found in cloth diaper specific detergents. The ingredients of this detergent are like a cross between some popular non-plant derived cloth diaper detergents and soaps like Charlie Soap that are plant-derived but do NOT include disinfectants like sodium percarbonate. I prefer having a disinfectant in my cloth diaper detergent, so this is a great choice for those of you who want a natural plant-based detergent you can use on your regular or cloth diaper laundry.

I used this with both my regular laundry and cloth diaper laundry, but had a harder time figuring out the right ratio of detergent for my cloth diapers compared to other detergents I have used. It took a bit of trial and error to make sure they were adequately rinsed clean, but this may be due to the fact that we have moderately hard water. I have more recently been using detergents specially formulated for hard water, so I may benefit from using water softeners with this detergent. Also note that all of their products are super concentrated, cutting down on costs for you and in shipping etc. So when experimenting I recommend testing less detergent before trying more.

Ingredients

  • Palm and coconut based non-ionic and anionic surfactants
  • Silicates and carbonates (simple mineral salts)
  • Citrates (from citrus)
  • Cellulose (plant based)
  • Sodium percarbonate (oxygen producing whitener)
  • Natural Lemon Verbena Oil
I’m eager to try their Pure Oxygen Cleaner as I am always looking for gentle, natural brighteners as well as their other cleaning and hygiene products such as their shampoos. Have a pet? They’ve got them covered with their pet care products too.
