I just ran out of my regular Palmolive dish detergent — not to be confused with dishwasher detergent; I’m talking about the liquid suds you keep by the kitchen sink for hand-cleaning all those Waterford crystal champagne flutes … Yeah yeah, I’m broke, but fancy stemware is a non-negotiable indulgence at my place.
Anyway, because I’m trying to get as much variety as possible with all these eco-products, I thought I’d invest in something a little different, maybe a Canadian brand like Nature Clean or Citra-Dish. But the Ecover detergent just looked so much prettier than the others, with its translucent packaging and modern typeface. Plus I’ve already had major success with this company’s laundry wash and glass cleaner, and it’s owned by this Belgian dude named Jørgen Philip Sørensen, and when you have two slashed letter o’s in your name, you’re officially cool.
So I just went ahead and bought their dish detergent. Of course, I love it. Smells light and fresh, isn’t too gooey and does the job perfectly.
And no, I swear I don’t work for Ecover, nor are they slipping me free swag under the table (psst, Ecover, feel free to do this anytime — I’m at 300-1450 Don Mills Rd, Toronto, ON, M3B 3R5).
