Another of my valued sponsors is Ecostore; they also sponsor the Down to Earth Forum. Ecostore produce a large range of environmentally-friendly products for personal hygiene and general household cleaning. Hanno and I both have sensitive skin and have to be very careful washing up and cleaning our hands. The Ecostore dish liquid does an excellent job on our dishes, you don't need to use much and it does no harm to our hands. We had a small amount of supermarket dish liquid in the cupboard that Hanno decided to use up and the next day he had itching rashes on his hands again. That convinced him to stay with the Ecostore product. We like the hand wash liquid for the same reasons. We order both these products in a 5 litre container, they last a long time and save on both packaging and postage. If you're interested in buying the larger sizes, look in the "size" section of the product description for the details.
As you know, we decided long ago to home produce as much as we can. I've made my own dish liquid, and made a very good liquid soap, but it took a couple of days to make and the batch yielded only about two litres. To make enough for our own needs I would have to make up a batch every month and I wasn't prepared to do that. I'm still making laundry liquid and soap that we use in the shower and as shampoo. I also make all the cleaners I use here. But I'm a practical woman and I want a back up system when I can't do what I want to do. When I can't make what I need, I use Ecostore because I trust the brand. I recommend them to you as well. Your skin is your body's largest organ; you must be able to trust what you use on your skin. So every day I use a mix of my home produced soap and cleaners, Ecostore hand wash and dish liquid. If I was sick or too busy to make my own, I know I can rely on the Ecostore products.
Ecostore is available is various supermarkets around Australia and New Zealand and there is an online North American store. Most of the shops stocking Ecostore don't take the entire range so for your convenience, that is listed at their new online store. They've just introduced a new fragrance - geranium and orange, but still have their fragrance-free products as well.
