How Often Do You Clean Your House?

A Year's Supply of Ecover on a 4x4 Table

I’ll admit, I thought I was pretty clean. I do the dishes every day or two, the bathroom every week or two, the floors every month or two.

But it turns out the people at Ecover have other ideas about how much I could be cleaning. Behold the year’s supply of cleaning products I received as a finalist in Ecover’s 30 under 30 contest. I didn’t win the big prize, that went to the very deserving Ryan Arnold.

But, each of us finalists got an extremely generous year’s supply of cleaning products, including products I’ve never heard of:

Cream Scrub!

I brought a stash to a dinner party to share, and over a glass of wine, we pondered important questions like, ‘What is Limescale Remover?’ In the Bay Area, we don’t get a lot of mineral deposits, and without you, dear Ecover, my friends would still be in the dark.

Thank you for educating me on all the things I should be cleaning, and how remiss I’ve been about how frequently I clean them.

Just kidding, of course. You rock, and all my lucky friends think so too.
