That Zen Feeling with #EcoverLaundry @Britmums @EcoverUK

Doing the laundry is a big part of my daily routine as Mother and Wife. After spending the last four years dealing with cloth nappies and all the associated wet clothing, my youngest child has finally potty trained and the load has lessened – mostly. We still have a few “accidents” while she is learning bladder control. It is easy to forget what a challenge our bodies face when we are growing. Finding the right laundry detergent is a big challenge when there are so many aspects to consider: is it suitable for sensitive skin? Does it smell nice and fresh? Is is environmentally friendly?

Now it seems I have the answer. I was very excited to receive a new bottle of Non-Bio Concentrated Laundry Detergent from Ecover in the post last week. They have developed a new fragrance, Lavender and Sandalwood, and I love it! This morning I put our bed covers in the wash, and now my kitchen smells like an aromatherapy sanctuary. So the detergent had a dual purpose – it washed my clothes, and it makes everything smell beautiful. Bonus!

So far I have tried my new detergent on the school uniform, and it seems to be working well. My elder daughter developed a little rash around her neck early last week, possibly a result of wearing her polo shirts and cardigans every day. It seems to have calmed down now, and I think it was assisted by the change in detergent, which left her school clothes feeling soft, smelling pretty, and evidently, not rubbing her sensitive skin.

Ecover is a favoured brand for me and my husband because of its mission to work with Nature as much as possible. We prefer to use environmentally friendly household products wherever we can, and this sweet-smelling detergent could be the answer to our laundry quest. Now, I wonder if I may get some sheets on the washing line before it rains again…
