Not sure if this is the right place for it but anyway...

Is anyone here a member, if so which sort? I'm going to join as I like the products of theirs I've tried so far. I'm just not sure whether to become a full member or not.

If you're a full member, how hard was it to find people to sell the stuff to or do you buy enough just for your family's use to make it worth it?

Crying baby, may be back with more ?s later.

I use some of Trinature.

Some of it isn't that great, make sure you thoroughly check ingredients!! Some of it is great though.

Basically, it's more environmentally friendly products for those that still like to use 'chemicals' for cleaning with. They have no phosphates, nitrates or animal by products and use renewable resources in the manufacture of them. They are mostly concentrates so you need to use far less to get the same result as other products.

The other thing I like is that they work out as cheap or cheaper than the brands I was using anyway.

Kylie - which products are the ones which are no good. I'm just new to this whole reducing environmental impact thing and still need lots of help with knowing what is actually good and what just seems to be.

They still use Sodium Lauryl Ether Sulphate which isn't that great if you're after gentler ingredients.

I like things that are natural as well as good for the environment, I guess it just depends what you want for your family.

I have found Envirocare to be suitable for my needs.

I use the washing powder, i think it's great i use 1/4 of the very small scoop that comes with it for nappies. and they come up very good clean and smell fresh! i also use the general cleaner supre, basically spray and wipe without the breath gasping stench! it is a concentrate and i find it works well. i trialled their socker but didn't like it, it ate away at a zip on DH jacket as i forgot about it and it got left too long, would napisan do the same? hard to say...

Kylie - thank you. I had read somewhere on their site that some of their products do still contain that, but in much lower levels so the product is still effective. They are working on getting rid of it entirely. Looks like Envirocare is no good for me as there's no suppliers anywhere near me.

Banksia - was it a metal zip or plastic? It says on napisan instructions that items with metal fastenings shouldn't be soaked.

cheekymonkey it was a metal zip, so yes napisan could have dissovled it too, but i have been known to leave jeans soaking too long in napisan and they have been ok, oh well  tongue.gif
