EnviroHome for Happier, Cleaner and Healthier Home

As my husband has to work hard outside to bring home the bacon, being a SAHM, my daily life is unquestionably bound to cleaning the house, preparing the food, taking care of Naomi, doing laundry, tending my garden and feeding our pet fish, to name a few. Ensuring that my house, including what we eat and wear, is clean is my priority because clean house and body equal to happy and healthy family. I mean how can we promote a happy and healthy live if we lead an unhygienic life?

As such, when EnviroHome asked me to test their natural home cleaning products, I am more than happy to do so. If you are new to EnviroHome, it is actually an eco-friendly home and personal care brand which provides 100% natural ingredients, chemical-free, bubble free and unscented products. Their products are not produced with preservatives, antiseptic, surfactant and other chemical substances that are poisonous to us so their products are very safe for our entire family use.

EnviroHome products for me to test.

EnviroHome Food Wash

The first product that I want to review here is EnviroHome Food Wash. To be honest, I think Fruit and Vegetable Wash is not a novel product and it has been around in the market for a while now. I have seen such products every now and then but never tried any before. Before EnviroHome sent me a bottle of their Food Wash, I only used lots and lots of tap water to thoroughly wash vegetables and fruits before cooking or serving them to my family.

After I used EnviroHome's Food Wash that is non-toxic, unscented and derived from natural ingredients, I realized that it's actually better to wash our vegetables and fruits with a solution like the above mentioned to break down pesticides, wax, insecticides, bacteria and preservatives in vegetables and fruits before consuming them, especially if you don't purchase organic fresh produce.

How to use EnviroHome's Food Wash to clean your vegetables and fruits before cooking or eating them raw?
  1. Add 1-2 pumps of EnviroHome Food Wash into a large bowl or basin of water.
  2. Soak the vegetables and fruits into the solution for 2-3 minutes. Make sure that you put enough water in the bowl or basin to cover all fruits and vegetables.
  3. Rub the vegetables and fruits gently.
  4. Drain the dirty water.
  5. Rinse the vegetables and fruits with running or tap water 2-3 times before cooking or consuming them.
From what I understood, EnviroHome products are supposed to be bubble-free so when I noticed that the Food Wash created a bit of bubbles on the water that I used to soak my vegetables and fruits for the first time, I thought I pumped too much of the solution to the water. However, seemingly the product does create a bit of bubbles when used to wash fresh produce because I tried it to wash my green leaf vegetables with it and small amount of bubbles came out again.

Anyhow, I found out that it is normal for the bubbles to appear when the Food Wash solution is in contact with running/tap water or when we stir the water in the basin with our hands. These bubbles don't mean anything as neither the colour nor the taste of the vegetables and fruits washed with the solution is affected and they disappear almost immediately. The main point here to remove harmful substances from the vegetables and fruits before putting them into our mouth. Just make certain that you rinse your vegetables and fruits again with running water for a couple of times after soaking your fresh produce with the water that is mixed with this Food Wash - and they are good to go!

 I turned the above vegetables into this. Yum!

Food Wash to clean vegetables and fruits is rather mainstream, isn't it? But what about Food Wash that breaks the bacteria and fishy smells from seafood and raw meat? EnviroHome Food Wash is ideal to clean seafood and raw meat too. To me, this is quite a revolutionary and amazing concept as I hate eating meat or seafood that has very strong fishy smell after being cooked.

EnviroHome Food Wash does raw meat too.

Try washing your seafood and raw meat with EnviroHome Food Wash because not only it kills all the bacteria and annoying smells from the meat but it also preserves the freshness of the meat so it stays fresh after you keep it frozen for days.

EnviroHome Laundry Detergent

I think I am a bit OCD when it comes to wearing clean clothes. I dislike wearing smelly shirts or stained clothes and because of this, I have the feeling that the amount of dirty laundry in our house is slightly higher compared to other small households'. In addition, Naomi's diaper sometimes leaks overnight and she tends to pee on her pants when throwing tantrums so these wet pants and urine-soiled bed sheets add up to the number of dirty laundry that my washing machine has to deal with.

The second product that EnviroHome sent me to try was perfect to meet my need in providing my family with clean and fresh clothes day in day out. It's the 1kg unscented chemical-free liquid detergent that contains marine extract and botanical formula. Prior to this, I was a bit sceptical about using fragrance-free detergent as our clothes drying area is not under direct sunlight. That's why I usually only buy super fragrant detergent and occasionally pour some fabric softener into the washing machine as well to avoid my laundry having terrible smell after being hung dry indoor.

Although EnviroHome laundry detergent is fragrant free, to my surprise, it does not produce any odour problem on my washed laundry after I hang them dry indoor. The detergent cleans brilliantly and my laundry still feels clean and smells fresh like usual, just minus the strong fragrant smell.

It's safe to be used to wash kid's clothes.

The product's use direction mentions that it is enough to pour 50ml or a full cap of the liquid detergent into our washing machine but I pour two full caps of EnviroHome laundry detergent to my washing machine because my washing machine's capacity is 15kg and I always wash full load of dirty laundry into my washer to save electricity and water.

Mommy's laundry duty is always ON.

Speaking of electricity and water, EnviroHome Laundry Detergent will help us save our utility bills and protect environment too because it contains anti-foaming agent. Washing foam-free means using less water to rinse your clothes. See below pictures as a comparison of hand washing your clothes using EnviroHome Laundry Detergent versus Chemical Laundry Detergent. Notice the foam difference both products produce when mixed with water.

Hand washing your laundry or baby clothes with foam-free EnviroHome detergent is obviously less painful and utilizes less water because you don't have to rinse the clothes over and over again with gallons of water to clear all the foams.

To conclude, I think EnviroHome products are something that you should think of buying if you are looking for effective, all-natural and eco-friendly household cleaning products. I must admit that their products are somewhat pricey. But then again, in general we need to pay extra to get anything that is made of all-natural ingredients in the market because natural products offer much safer and healthier benefits to us and environment. Having said this, if you have the budget and intention to create a 'greener' and healthier home, do consider switching your home cleaning products to EnviroHome's.
