Ecover Power Clean vs Cillit Bang degreaser
Browse main article categories
When I first began my ‘green journey’ it was challenging at times.
There were few products and services that were truly green and actually worked.
I put up with second rate cleaning because I believed in the ethics of my lifestyle choices, but sometimes I gave in to powerful toxic cleaners just to get the job done.
Environmentally friendly cleaning
Things have changed a lot since then and nearly every supermarket carries a line of environmentally friendly cleaning products.
Ecover is one of the leading eco friendly brands and for the past seven years, their scientists have been developing an eco surfactant ingredient which has been released in their new hard surface cleaning range.
Ecover believe that their products are as good as some of the leading conventional brands and reckon their ecological products are as effective as the petrochemical alternatives.
That’s some claim!
Eco friendly vs petrochemical
Not one to shy away from a challenge myself, I tested Cillit Bang degreaser against Ecover’s Power Cleaner. I gave it a tough test! Our kitchen, dining room and conservatory are open plan. In the dining room is a wood burner which runs constantly from October to March. The top of my kitchen cupboards take a beating from all the dust (you have to run a woodburner to even begin to imagine what I am talking about!) and when we cook we end up with greasy dust sticking to the top surface.
It’s not good and I must admit to adopting an ‘out of sight out of mind’ approach. but every once in a while I feel the need to clean up my little palace properly.
