Noise with Muck on…coping with cleaning boys clothes and eczema

I have commented that Mini is known in this house as “noise with muck on”.  He stays clean for all of 5 minutes and his clothes take the brunt of his lifestyle.  I expected this as a mum of boys, however, I also have to contend with Eczema which for me rules out using harsh chemicals when cleaning the boys clothes.

Maxi is my main suffer  but both boys have periods of really sore and itchy skin, so I was delighted to be able to try out the new Ecover Zero products.

Ecover Zero Non-Bio Washing Powder contains an Oxygen-based bleaching agent.  It is fragrance free and uses plant-based ingredients.  It is approved by Allergy UK it is gentle to your skin.

  • For Sensitive Skin
  • Tough on stains, even at 30°C
  • New formulation for brilliant results on whites and colourfast laundry
  • GHI Approved
  • Dermatologically tested
  • Approved by Allergy UK
  • Suitable for septic tanks

We have been using this for the last month and I am delighted with the results.  Both the washing powder and the softer are brilliant.  Yes, there have been some stains which have been hard to remove, but I use Ecover Stain remover (which I have had for the last six months and only just run out of) and can say that I am more than happy with my laundry regime.

The Ecover Zero Fabric Conditioner leave your clothes fragrance free and luxuriously soft again is approved by Allergy UK and dermatologically for sensitive skin.

  • For Sensitive Skin
  • For Luxuriously Soft Clothes
  • Dermatologically tested
  • Approved by Allergy UK
  • Suitable for septic tanks

I have to admit that I missed a gentle scent and took to adding a could of drops of lavender oil to the wash.

I am so impressed with the Ecover products that I have placed an order for bulk products from Ecover Direct, as I can not buy them locally.

The weather here is very harsh in the winter and my kids always get really dry skin so I’ve been having to use “skin-friendly” detergent for years. I too, miss a nice smell to it, and never thought of adding anything like that. Thanks for the tip!

Maybe have also a look at Method
Admitetly a fair bit more expensive than Ecover, but in terms of ingredients possibly even better – Crade to Cradle, and supposedly edible/drinkable (not sure about tasty, though).
