Ecover Rinse Aid
Ecover Leaves Dishes Ecological and Sparkling Clean
Our home is full of seasonal allergies and chemical sensitivities. So, why would I mention that in a review of a rinse aid dishwasher product? Well, Ive recently read that the air in your home is dirtier than the air outside! This means if you have asthma or any other type of inhalant allergies in your home, reducing the amount of inside pollution is a good strategy for reducing the amount of irritants affecting your family members.
Now, most of us leave cleaning the air in our homes to air purifiers and air filters, but apparently, one of the most significant sources of air pollution in your home is your dishwasher! Every time you open your dishwasher, you release hot water vapour into your home especially if you (and you know who you are) open it during the washing or rinsing cycle to add one more dish. Dishwasher vapour is full of the various chemicals in the rinse aid used to clean your dishes.
Given our chemical allergies and sensitivities, and also given that our son has seasonal allergies (and doesnt need another nasal or bronchial irritant during the allergy season), I started to look around for alternatives to conventional dishwasher detergent powders and rinse aids. Im still on the hunt for a good dishwasher detergent, but Ive certainly found the rinse aid of my dreams.
Ecover dishwasher rinse aid is a brand that specializes in various ecologically-friendly cleaning products. Their rinse aid has a short list of ingredients, and it doesnt include any of the harsh chemicals that might be found in other dishwasher rinse aids. Furthermore, the product does exactly what it claims to do! Every time Ive used it, Ecover produces lovely clean dishes. Better still, we havent had any problems with calcium deposits, despite using this product for several months now. Another bonus is that this product contains absolutely no petrochemical ingredients.
Ecover dishwashing rinse aid claims to leave no chemical residue. Given the fact that we often leave the dishes to air dry - Id heartily agree. In addition the dishes are left with no traces of funky dishwasher smell, and theres no funny taste to a glass of water when the glasses are left to air dry.
Ecover dishwashing rinse aid is environmentally friendly too! The package says that the product is safe for all river and marine life (so its perfect to use at the cottage), theres no animal testing performed on it, and its safe to use with septic tank systems. The package also states that Ecover dishwashing rinse aid actually biodegrades faster than government legislative requirements demand.
Most of all Ecover works! So, if you want less chemicals hanging in the air around your home, and you still want clean and clear dishes, try Ecover Ecological Rinse Aid in your dishwasher.
