    Afternoon

    I have been noticing a theme on here with everyone talking about ecover
    I have a couple of questions
    What is so good about it
    And why mixing it with flash etc
    Not being funny just I have used fairy since day 1 and if it makes a difference I will try it

    I find it's best to have a play with different soaps/mix at least that way you can find out what works best for you.

    With the cost of washingup liquid being so cheap, coupled with the fact that if you don't like it on the windows, you can just use it for its intended use after, theres no reason not to just try a load of different ones. Personally I chuck vinegar in to the mix and its great, the only reason I wont try the flash is because I like the fact that Eco+Vin is all biodegradable, and that I don't cover my hands in chemicals every day.

    I started using ecover for a few months but am now firmly back in the fairy camp, the main reason being that ecover infused water does evaporate faster than fairy water....as cnc mentioned previously.
