Ecover are marvelous, and I really, really like them. We already use their washing up liquid and laundry stuff (when we can afford to - like most ethical things, it's a bit more pricey than supermarket own brand, and as much as I love the environment and our beautiful planet, I'm not prepared to starve for it!), and they're all superb - a particular favourite is the Grapefruit and Green Tea washing up liquid. The new Zero range contains all the usual ethical wonderful-ness, but has been designed specifically for people with allergies, and is completely fragrance free. As a sufferer of extremely sensitive skin, and the mother to a child prone to eczema, I thought it sounded right up our street.
The pack I received contained non-bio laundry liquid and fabric conditioner, washing up liquid, a dishcloth, tea towel and a handy little tote bag, perfect for taking to the market on fruit and veg day. Lovely!
The cleaning was superb. I gave the laundry liquid and conditioner a rigorous testing on a white load which contained, amongst other things, my dressing gown (robe? What do people even call these things these days?) which was covered in baby sick (erk), toddler breakfast and make up. Mornings are a messy business in our house. Also in there was a tea towel, and a baby-gro. Both suitably mucky. They came out gleaming.

Head over to the Ecover website for more information, products and much more.
(Note: Although I received the cleaning products for free, I wasn't paid for this post and all opinions are my own. If I'd thought it was pants, I would have said so!)
