Tried out a product I’ve been meaning to for ages and was so happy with it I wished I’d tried it sooner!
It’s the Eco-Me Scrub Cleanser and it’s part of the whole Eco-Me line, which is built around the idea that you mix essential oils with simple ingredients and, voilÃ , you have effective cleaning products for your home and yourself. For the Cleanser, Eco-Me provides the reusable jar,Â single use essential oil blend (tea tree, lavender, rosemary and lemongrassÂ — an antibacterial and antifungal combo), and microfibre cloth; you provide the baking soda, vinegar and water.
Mixing everything together is hugely fun. If you have kids, this is something you definitely want to do with them — it’s like a magic show/science experiment all rolled into one. Add water, vinegar and oil to the jar, then slowly, I repeat s-l-o-w-l-y, add some baking soda, and watch in amazement as the mixture foams up to the top of the jar in a spectacular fashion. The kids will be amazed and so will you! When everything has simmered down and you’ve stirred up the whole concoction, you’re left with a cleanser that’s ideal for your kitchen and bath.
I used it on my sink, counters and stovetop and it cleaned them all brilliantly and left my sink sparkling. I just had to be sure to rinse everything thoroughly.
Eco-Me sells a whole home kit that includes the scrub cleanser, all-purpose spray cleaner and wood polish spray cleaner. They also offer body- and baby-care products and items for your four-legged family friends, too.
