This post is brought to you by Electrolux.
When you make a large purchase, like a new appliance, it can be nerve-wracking. A big concern for many (myself included) is the upkeep of the piece. Sure it may look great on the show-room floor, but is it going to be awful to clean? Are you going to be able to use earth friendly products to clean it? These are important things to consider when making a purchase!
I was recently informed that Electrolux sells a line of green kitchen cleaning products. Many of you know that I have been trying to take more steps to be more green and have recently made the switch to some more green products. It's not always easy, however, to find cleaning products that offer the same cleaning power as the harsher chemicals that I used to clean with.
In trying out the ecosential by Smart Choice that Electrolux offers, I have really found some winners! First, I love that they have a Stainless Steel Cleaner.
Confession: I hate cleaning stainless steel.
The smudges that accumulate from my little ones putting their hands all over build up and make it look gross. It can be difficult to completely get rid of fingerprints and dirt that knows just where to hide. The ecosential cleaner takes care of them, no problem!
There is also a 'Smooth Cooktop Cleaner." If you have ever had the cooktop type of stove, you know how frustrating it can be to not only get it clean, but to get rid of all the streaks that a lot of cleaners leave behind. The ecosential cleaner let me get rid of grease splatters, spilled pancake batter, and build up, leaving it really looking nice.
The one product that everyone can use, regardless of the type of kitchen appliances you have is the kitchen surface and oven cleaner.
Confession: I hate cleaning my oven.
It's true, it's one chore that I tend to forget about until my oven is sending out smoke from all the build up inside. Not a great way to start your day! The overpowering chemical scent from a typical oven cleaner is absolutely horrendous! Luckily, ecosential cleaners are unscented! The one thing I wish this cleaner had though, was a disinfectant. I like knowing that my counters have been cleared of bacteria, and while this cleans well, it doesn't kill germs.
All of these products are made to chemically biodegradable, so they won't leach chemicals into the earth and - drumroll please! - they are made in the U.S.A.! You all know how much I love a made-in-the-U.S.A. product!
