As with most mums I’d imagine, doing the laundry is definitely NOTamongst my favourite pastimes. In fact, I find it completely tedious.
I love the after effect and the beautifully fresh clothes, but the process of getting them there is one that I would happily give up.
As well as the monotony of doing the laundry, in this household we are also tasked with the rather serious job of ensuring our toddlers clothes are washed using Non-Bio, sensitive detergent, as he suffers from quite severe Eczema. Even the slightest whiff of ordinary perfumed detergent and he breaks out in the ugliest of rashes and is scratching for weeks.
As you can imagine, we’ve tried several different detergents and have luckily found a couple that don’t irritate his delicate skin, but we are yet to find one that is efficient in getting rid of stains at a lower temperature.
This is why I wanted to try out Ecover. Not only is it “dermatologically tested” but it promises to deliver “spotless clean results, even on a cold wash”. And as if that wasn’t appealing enough, it also comes with my all time favourite scent – Lavender!!! What’s not to love?
But does it deliver real results???
The answer is a great big YES!
It worked wonders for my boys Chocolate and milk stained clothes… even delivering at the aforementioned low temperature!
As well as this, the gentle scent was mild enough that my boys skin was left protected and unscathed.
I am delighted.
Not only has it converted me to liquid detergents, which I never gave the time of day until now, but I know, beyond doubt, that it is both effective and gentle enough for my beautiful… grubby boy!
