Thanks to Debra from Debra’s Random Rambles for hosting this awesome ePantry giveaway. To read up on ePantry and Debra’s thoughts, please continue to read below.
I have to say, after reading her review of ePantry and the products they carry, I’m intrigued. I had never heard of their site before today, but as a busy mom whose schedule is hectic at best, and wants to use products that are not only better for the environment, but her family as well, this site and what they offer seems like the perfect solution.
(Also, though I have never tried Meyer’s Candles, I have burned soy candles before and they are easily my favorite.)
Now onto the review and giveaway. Good luck and happy cleaning!
I was offered the opportunity to review products from ePantry. With as big a family as we have, I jumped at the chance to review cleaning products and anything that is better for the environment and my kids. All of the opinions are my own and my review is my honest opinion.
This is what the generous people at ePantry sent me to review! The tissues are not pictured. The kids opened that because they all have a cold and we were short on tissues at the time!
Out of the all the products I was sent, I love the candle the most! I didn’t have to burn it for very long to get the smell to fill my home. I live in a cottage style home that resembles a gingerbread house, so it is on the smaller size. I had it lit for about 2 hours and then snuffed it because I had to run errands. When I got back home a few hours later, I could still smell the scent in the air! I love that! Its soy with a 35 hour burn time.
My second favorite, would be the Mrs. Meyer’s Clean Day Countertop spray. I didnt just use it on the counter top tho. I also cleaned the cupboards, the wall, quick spray cleaned the dining room floor and the stove top. The Honeysuckle smell was not overpowering. The kids came in from school and asked “Whats that smell?” When I told them, the recurring comment was “Thank God you didn’t use the other smelly stuff!”
I was sent the following products as well:
Body Wash: Olive Leaf by Method (Pure Naked) Not an over powering scent and my skin feels so good after I shower!
Facial Tissues: Green Forest. Kids liked them! They were not rough on their noses and withstood the blowing of the noses! No ripped tissues to report. I like them as well since we only needed to use one at a time instead of 3-4.
Gel Hand Wash: Clementine by Method. Awesome smell and a little bit will do you!
Dish Soap in a pump: Sea Minerals by Method. Good smelling. Works good on dishes that are not too greasy. If you have a greasy dish, you may want to stick with a more potent dish soap or use a scouring pad with this soap.
Glass + Surface Cleaner: Mint by Method. I left my windows sparkly and streak free! I like it a lot better than the vinegar and water solution I have been using! And the light minty smell didn’t bother me a bit.
Automatic Dishwasher Packs:
Basil Scented by Mrs. Meyer’s. Since I do not have a dishwasher I asked my very good friend Karen to review them. She has an older model of dishwasher that has an issue with dissolving the packs. Here is what she had to say. “I was asked to do a product review on this. I was quite impressed with my old dishwasher. Worked great no nasty residue, sparkling dishes even with me missing a rinse agent. Its all natural easy on environment, and smelled great! I always hesitate on bubble packs as they usually don’t work well in my old machine. I was happy to see it fully dissolved! ” ~Karen~
