Review & Giveaway : Ecover's eco-friendly All Purpose Cleaner (Lemon Fragrance)


It seems like my household has been using (and loving) Ecover's dish washing liquid for years, so I was excited when Ecover offered me a chance to sample their improved formula All Purpose Cleaner (lemon fragrance). I have a hard time with fragrances and tend to dislike most of them, so I always opt for products that have more "natural" scents like citrus, mint, lavender or unscented products. I really like the lemon scent this product has: it's subtle and lemony but slightly sweet smelling, almost like a lemon-lime soda or sparkling lemon drink. The scent also isn't overpowering, isn't too lingering, and (most importantly) doesn't smell like chemicals, so scent-wise it's very innocuous.

The product works really well to clean off dirt and grime and it's concentrated so you get more bang for your buck! You need only 1-2 capfuls of the cleaner per 1.5 gallons of water and you can also use it undiluted for tough stains. The formula is also not too harsh, so you don't have to worry too much about the residues being a potential health hazard. The formulation is made to work on any washable surface so it really is an "all purpose" product.

Here's some additional highlights of the product (from the Ecover website):
  • Made without animal ingredients (vegan friendly) and without animal testing
  • Fast & Complete biodegradability
  • Ecover has an awesome environmental policy!
This product gets my personal seal of approval and with a retail price of around $5, it's green and affordable. If you're considering an all purpose cleaner, I highly recommend Ecover!
