Budget Home: Dishmate and ECOS by Earth Friendly Products

Recently I had the opportunity to test out two products from Earth Friendly Products, namely Ultra Dishmate Natural Grapefruit Liquid Dishwashing Cleaner and ECOS Magnolia & Lily All Natural Laundry Detergent. Like most people, I try to be aware of the chemicals I'm using in my home and on my body, but at the end of the day, I just want something effective and affordable. So I'm thrilled to tell you that yes! Both products work wonderfully and they're a great value. More details after the jump.
