Review and Giveaway: Ecostore's green cleaners have No Nasty Chemicals

3/11/10 UPDATE: Winner is...Luke Swantek! Congrats Luke and thank you everyone for entering.

________________________________________

I got rid of my cleaning lady almost 3 years ago. I miss her terribly but I just couldn't justify the cost anymore. And, while part of me LOVED the fresh chemical smell and neat, orderly home I had once every two weeks...the feeling only lasted about 5 minutes until the Twofer started trashing the place again.

So, I started cleaning myself.

There are tons of products out there that make cleaning easier but...

The one area I dreaded the most was the bathroom.

Ew.

So I loaded up on long-handled brushes and scrubbers and potent cleaners that promised "no scrubbing" so that I wouldn't have to work as hard or get as close to the germy germs. Yet, even with that distance the chemicals were burning my nose.

It's not until YOU do the cleaning YOURSELF that you really start to think about what you are using!

Here's how my neurotic brain works....I would wash the Twofer's bathtub and rinse and rinse and rinse and not really want them to sit in the tub because I just wasn't sure I had rinsed all the chemicals out. And I didn't want them sitting in a tub full of harsh chemical with their private parts all exposed becase who knows what that stuff will do to a girl's reproductive organs and I would like them to have kids one day so I can have grandkids thankyouverymuch (deep breath in) so just how long do you think I need to rinse this tub before I can safely fill it with bath water for them and know they aren't taking a chemical bath that will one day leave them barren????

That was when I started looking into green cleaners.

Ecostore products have No Nasty Chemicals

I tried the cream cleanser on my stainless steel fridge, kitchen sink, and the Twofer's bathtub. I also used the toilet cleaner on two of our toilets. I have to say both cleaners have a nice fresh but definitely not harsh smell. The cream cleanser got rid of the tub scum with little scrubbing effort from me and rinsed off nicely. Plus, I'm not worried about rinsing it 1000 times because it's made of chalk, plant based products, xanthum gum, and lemon verbena oil...natural goodness.

The toilet cleaner was thicker than the other chemical brand I buy. I let it sit for a few minutes in the bowl and it worked really well with a few strokes of the toilet brush. Plus, it's clear, not blue and contains NO phosphates, bleach, nitrates, ammonia, chlorine, etc. Who knew a mixture of glucocides, citric acid, pine oil, and other natural elements could clean a toilet bowl so well!

And check out the note that comes with the product shipment:

Giveaway: $25 SUBWAY Gift Cards for Fresh Fit Footlongs

UPDATE - Winners of the $25 gift cards are Sarah and Ashley! Congratulations! ___________________________________________________________

Question: Do you consider SUBWAY fast food?

For me, they have done a really good job of branding themselves as a much healthier alternative to what I consider 'standard' fastfood like McDonald's, Burger King, even Chick-Fil-A.

On our regular trips up the NJTPKE (New Jersey Turnpike for you West Coasties) we SEEK out signs and exits with SUBWAY because we know we eat better there, we make better choices, and we feel better for the rest of the trip.

How did SUBWAY get me to think differently about them?

First, they offer fresh veggies, wheat bread, and they make the food right in front of you.

Then I got to interview Jared Fogle and Laila Ali at a SUBWAY event that showed kids things they can do to stay active and a program they developed for schools and rec centers to spread the word about making healthy choices.

Other Fresh Fit moves by SUBWAY

Did you know...

SUBWAY Fresh Fit is on Twitter?

SUBWAY has a very active Fan page on Facebook?

SUBWAY teamed with Biggest Loser to create a mix of workout music?

SUBWAY has a very cool Fresh Fit meal builder on their website?

Win a $25 SUBWAY gift card to try out their Fresh Fit meals!

TwoferMom has TWO $25 gift cards to giveaway to 2 of my fabulous readers to help you with your 2010 fitness goals. If you HAVE to eat 'fast food' this gift card will make it easy for you to stick to healthy choices...even if it's a footlong! Here's how to enter, each one is an entry and you must leave a comment with a link when possible to verify.

1. Leave me a comment which Fresh Fit sub you want to try

2. Become a fan of SUBWAY on Facebook (http://www.facebook.com/subway) and post something like this on your wall "I entered to win a $25 gift card to @Subway on http://TwoferMom.com"

Giveaway: Online Poster Prints Turn Your Images into Art

So this looks like the coolest thing yet!

You can take a photo and have a digital photo enlargement done to make it poster-sized and ready to hang on your wall!

NOTE: this is a giveaway only - I have not tried this yet but am going through old photos to see just which one I want to use. I'm wondering if I should scan in some of the Twofer's artwork from preschool, or enlarge a photo of my dad holding them as infants (he passed away a week later), or simply have a poster made of our annual family photo at the beach.

Win one from TwoferMom

One winner will receive a 18x24 Poster Print on high gloss or semi gloss paper. Turnaround is about one business day and shipping will be FREE (UPS Ground).

Here's how to enter:

1. Leave a comment telling me what type of photo you would have made into a poster...one of your child, an artistic photo your took, or maybe a logo for your business?

2. Subscribe to TwoferMom via email.

That's it! Contest is open to US residents 18 years or older. Contest ends Tuesday, February 23 at 11:00pm ET. Winner will be notified via email and will have 48 hours to respond before I choose another winner.

For more information on having digital photos on posters visit onlineposterprinting.com.

Good luck!
