How many loads of washing do you do in a week?
I did 8 loads today! All from our 7-day holiday in New York. There were just my two daughters and I and yet we accumulated 8 whole loads of multi-coloured washing.
At home I usually do a load a day because I enjoy the fulfilment of reaching the bottom of the basket, sad I know. But when you give up a highly driven life as a career woman in the media to become a working/stay-at-home mum then it’s the small achievements that float your boat.
I like to be armed with a good kit at home too to get my chores done quickly and efficiently.
And I’m fussy with laundry detergent because I have to wear the after product. Plus our normal basket contains my husband’s chef whites, lots of my gym gear as well as the girls’ mucky dresses.
I thought this week was a good opportunity to road test Ecover as I like the fact that it’s plant-based. I’m also trying to go plant-based in my diet so it seemed fitting.
I was however sceptical because of the tiny amount the label suggested you use in the wash, whereas normally I dump tons of detergent in.
But I was pleasantly surprised by how nice my washing smelt although sadly it got a second wash from some torrential rain.
But nonetheless Ecover did the job I needed – it has cleaned a good load of my clothes as well as some of my daughters’ Hershey-chocolate-covered dresses.
So I’d definitely use it again as I love the fact it’s “inspired by nature.”
