EcoForce Review and Giveaway

cleaning, environmentally friendly, recycled materials
Green Cleaning


EcoForce is range of practical and effective household products made from recycled materials, that are greener, more eco-friendly and more sustainable than any other alternatives on the market.
The range includes recycled sponges, scourers, cloths and dusters for all green cleaning requirements, recycled pegs,  pegbasket and clothes line for eco-friendly laundry drying and recycled food bag grips for storing left overs.  EcoForce's award winning products do not  compromise on quality or price and offer an ethical choice when it comes to buying household goods.   All products are made from at least 90% recycled  waste here in the UK.  We all need to clean so why not do it the green way and use recycled products that are just as good, if not better, than counterparts made from virgin materials yet don't harm the environment!
There's also Dishmatic - a clever little device that comprises a hollow handle and sponge scourer head.  Simply fill the handle with washing up  liquid and it dispenses as you clean.   Dishmatic is made from recycled components and helps reduce dishwasher usage.  It's great for cleaning pots and pans, and washing up a few things when you don't want to use the dishwasher. At only £1.33 Dishmatic is good value and lasts for years. When the head is worn down simply replace with a new one.
EcoForce and Dishmatic are widely available in most supermarkets as well as Oxfam, Homebase, B & Q and on line.


Review


I was sent a selection of the EcoForce and Dishmatic products to try out.

EcoForce, Dishmatic, green cleaning

The range is really extensive and it is great to see so many environmentally friendly products made using recycled materials.  The Pegs are made from 93% recycled plastic and are moulded in one piece.  They are hurricane safe and very tough and come in a useful peg basket!  The Recycled Washing Line can be used to air dry your laundry.  It is the greenest way to dry your clothes, using no electricity and it costs nothing!  (All you need is some good weather!)


EcoForce


The Bag Grips are brilliant for keeping food fresh.  Made from 93% recycled plastic they are strong, freezer safe and washable.  They are really useful for bagging up left over food ensuring no waste!


The Dishmatic is a really novel washing up tool that means your Dishwasher may become redundant.  You simply fill up the handle with washing-up liquid and use it to clean pans and dishes.  Interchangeable heads can be used for heavy duty cleaning jobs.  It is easy to use, efficient and makes short work of the dishes.  


washing up


The other scourers, sponges, cloths and dusters are all made using recycled materials.  Each product is made to be perfect for its task and work really well.  There is no compromising on quality just because they are made from recycled products, so you can have a clean house...and a clean conscience!

    I always line dry or use the maiden in the house. I think the recycled material for making the pegs is a great idea and no metal to rust on my washing.

  21. I have to tumble dry because I live in a flat with no garden and electric heaters which aren't very good at drying clothes. I would use a line if I had one though, I think the clothes end up smelling a lot better and having less creases.

  61. Hilda Hazel Wright16 July 2012 at 08:42

    I'd always prefer to dry on the line and we study the weather forecast to plan wash days! I like the softness of clothes that have been tumble dried, but I like the smug satisfaction of free drying thats better for the environment and hanging washing out is something I find quite a nice thing to do...its like time out!

    ReplyDelete
  82. I prefer to tumble dry only because of the ease and you don't have to worry about the weather.

    ReplyDelete
  83. I dry my clothes inside, on a clothes horse. I'd hang them outside but I'd need to run down three flights of stairs and then up again (I know good exercise!) - not very practical in the changeable British climate.... Mind in this weather, there'd be no dry time for hanging outside any way!

    ReplyDelete

    ReplyDelete
  100. We've never tumble dried our clothes so when we got a new washing machine we didn't bother getting a dryer

    ReplyDelete
  101. Line dry, something satisfying about seeing your washing hanging out to dry

    @littleboo_21

    ReplyDelete
  102. I get great satisfaction putting the clothes on the line. Less energy wasted and it also means that the sun is out!

    ReplyDelete
  103. Line dry. I love to see it blowing merrily in the wind - it gives me a sense of satisfaction. Plus it smells fresher and is more economical and environmentally firendly

    ReplyDelete
  104. has to be line dried, you just dont get the same smell when it's tumbled!

    ReplyDelete
  105. Line dry, tumble dry messes up my clothes

    ReplyDelete
  106. Both really, in summer I line dry to save energy and because I love the fresh smell, but if it's got to be quick then I tumble dry.

    ReplyDelete
  107. Never used a tumble dryer before. Either it's outside if the weather's fine or on the clothes horse if it's not

    ReplyDelete
  108. Line dry gives me a great feeling of satisfaction watching it all fluttering in the wind @Bobbity666

  110. Cherryl Thomas29 July 2012 at 11:08

    Definitely line dry - it's ego friendly and the washing smells so fresh and lovely, and for eco reasons I don't even own a tumble dryer!

    ReplyDelete
  111. I do a combination of both. Line dry till dry then soften with a little time in the tumble dryer so I don't have to iron :)

    ReplyDelete
  112. I don't own a tumble drier so do have to line dry, which on the whole I would prefer. Whilst a tumble drier is handy in bad weather or in an emergency, I have found in the past that you can only dry certain items because some clothes can be ruined. Also clothes tend to get more creased, whereas on the line they are blown out

    ReplyDelete
  113. ALWAYS HANG ON THE LINE -

    ReplyDelete
  114. I like to line dry unless I need it urgently or weather is awful

    ReplyDelete
  115. I prefer line drying, it's better for the environment and cheaper.

    ReplyDelete
  116. Depends on so many things! Tshirts have to be line or radiator dried because they shrink in the tumbler, but it's a nightmare in the summer rain, too warm for radiators! The rest, I love to see it all blowing on the line, and it smells fab too!

    ReplyDelete
  117. I have always had a tumbledryer, but haven't used it for years now.
    It's just too expensive to run nowadays.

  146. definitely prefer to line dry it, but this year it's been great fun hanging it out for 5 minutes, taking it in, hanging it out, taking it in, it's a bit like the hokey cokey in, out, in, out, shake it all about :-)
