Ecoforce products put to the test!*Ad*

I am on a mission to make cleaning more green. I have to admit cleaning has never been my favourite activity. However, these days I’m so happy to find good eco alternatives that I’m enjoying it more.

So you can imagine my excitement when Ecoforce sent me some of their range to review.  The range includes recycled dusters, multipurpose cloths, a clothes line, scourers,  sponges, ‘dishmatic’, clothes pegs and a peg basket.    

Ecoforce product review


Dishmatic – this is  a washing up sponge that dispenses washing up liquid through the handle.  I’m sure I’ve used less washing up liquid than I normally would using this brush. It was nice to know there is an eco-friendly alternative to the non-recycled  washing up brushes I usually use.  Two types of replacement heads are available for Dishmatic. A heavy duty and non-scratch. So far I have been very happy with the heavy duty one it came with. Replacing the heads means that the handle part can be reused again and again, which is great.   


Dusters and multi-purpose cleaning cloths. The dusters looked thin and flimsy and didn’t say they were able to be washed.  I gave one a tug and it wasn’t as flimsy as it looked.  Not sure how long they would last though.  The cleaning cloths on the other hand look more luxurious and can be washed at 40C. Recycled and re-usuable. Great!

Clothes line , clothes pegs and peg basket. More environmentally friendly and will save you money if you hang your clothes out to dry.  Add to that these products use recycled materials and you will definitely feel you are doing your bit for the environment! The spring system in the pegs won the Design Council Millennium Products Award as they are made from a single piece of plastic.  Ecoforce claim the pegs ‘are extremely tough and almost impossible to break’, so I had to have a go. The peg did break but I can see that they would unlikely to break during usual use.


ScourersI tested one of the heavy duty scourers out on a filthy oven tray. The scourer survived to scrub another tray and seems to have plenty of life left in it yet! They also do non-scratch scourers similar to the replacement non-scratch  Dishmatic heads, which are for use on delicate surfaces and non-stick pans.  Probably best to try them out on an inconspicuous area first when using them on a new surface.  I found they were excellent for cleaning the grout in between my tiles in my shower.

Overall I thought the most of the products were of a good quality at a reasonable price.  I would definitely buy most of the products over similar less eco-friendly versions. Especially dishmatic, the peg basket, washing line, pegs, scourers and the multipurpose cloths.  Areas to improve include making the dusters washable and making the labelling on the non-scratch scourers more specific about the types of surfaces they can be used on.

Have you tried Ecoforce products?  I would love to hear your experiences with them and what you thought.
