Earth Friendly Products Safeguard Your Home

Made from replenishable sources, never tested on animals, non-toxic, phosphate and paraben-free Earth Friendly Products offer a variety of items for household and personal use.  You know you have seen the orange and lemon circular logo.  But did you know that all the products in the Earth Friendly Product line are formulated using the Freedom Code?  That means that in addition to the products being free from the nasty items listed above, Earth Friendly Products are also petroleum, bleach, ammonia, formaldehyde and 1,4-dioxane free. 

I tried a few of the products in the Earth Friendly Products family including the Parsley All-Purpose Kleener, Duo-Dish soap and the Fruit & Vegetable wash. 

The Parsley All-Purpose Kleener ($4.49, 22 oz*) is a plant based cleaner that uses the essential oils from parsley.  The first thing I noticed was the scent. It is a clean, fresh scent that is all parsley.  I liked how it wiped clean, leaving no residue and even eliminated dried yogurt, sauces and more from my kitchen table and counters.  The scent, while strong and striking, disipates quickly and leaves a bright, clean surface.  My  husband however, did not like the scent.  He thought it was too strong.  It's great for bathrooms because it is streak free but my favorite use for it is my microwave.  It not only cleans with ease, cutting through grease and it takes away any lingering odor from past nuked meals and dishes.  Fabulous! 

The DuoDish detergent was named the best 'New Vegetarian Product of 2010'.  You can use it in both the sink and the dishwasher which is impressive.  You can save yourself a bit of cash buying just this product instead of a detergent for the sink dishes and the ones that are cleaned in the dishwasher which is always nice.  This product (25 oz, price not available) actually put me off a bit at first as it looks cloudy in the bottle and seemed to move in a chunky, goopy sort of way through the bottle. However, once it is actually used it works.  It doesn't lather like traditional foamy dish soap but that is because it is chemical free. It still cleans and has very little scent. It cuts through grease and cleans well too.  In the dishwasher it does exactly the same thing and I was quite surprised.  It's an innovative, money-saving product that I really enjoyed using and the texture was fine when in use. 

Tasteless and that's a good thing. That's the Fruit & Vegetable Wash ($4.99, 22 oz) from Earth Friendly Products.  All you need to do is spray and wipe and your fruit and veggies come clean.  No strange taste is left behind and all the chemicals and pesticides are gone too.  I like to use this product per serving and over the sink to catch any additional spray.  It's not something I would normally buy but as a review it was interesting to try out.  Since you can't taste the bad stuff on your food it is hard to say how well this product works. 

In addition to these products Earth Friendly has an entire pet care line, paper products, laundry care and bathroom items.  I hope that soon I will be able to find EcoBreeze in my area as well.  I have been searching for a natural fabric refresher for quite some time and this might be worth trying.  Earth Friendly Products are available online at Amazon, and in discount stores, grocery stores and many other stores nationwide.
