What is Your Favorite EcoSense Product?
According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention every day in the United States two children die and over 300 children are treated in an emergency room as a result of poisoning. The accidental poisonings are caused not only by chemicals clearly marked as poisonous, but also by ordinary household cleaners and medicines.
We know that inhaling, ingesting, or absorbing a toxic substance through the skin can cause an immediate threat to life or health, but less is known about how small daily exposures to chemicals found in everyday products or combinations of chemicals might affect us.
The Melaleuca Wellness Guide tells us that different diseases and conditions linked to chemical exposure are usually the result of long-term exposure. Just as one cigarette is not likely to give you cancer, one non-acute exposure to chemicals in cleaners probably won't harm you either. But we are talking about cumulative exposure to many different products, and what might happen when different chemicals mix within our bodies. We do know that chemical combinations can be deadly. For example, drinking alcohol while using certain drugs can be a deadly combination. Could other chemicals mix in our bodies in a similar way? Scientists are finding that some chemicals in everyday products are very harmful.
The World Health Organization warns many synthetic chemicals found in household products are endocrine (hormone) disrupters and may be causing cancers, birth defects, and other developmental disorders.
A Safer Alternative
The EcoSense lines of household cleaners do not depend on harsh alkaline chemical reactions. Instead soil is dissolved and rinsed away by the use of natural enzymes, solvents, and surfactants. They do not contain surface damaging abrasives, bleach, ammonia, phosphates, or glycol ethers. And they do not contain the endocrine disrupting chemicals BPA or phthalates.
One Last Note
Potentially harmful chemicals are everywhere and hard to avoid, yet we can reduce our exposure by making safer choices whenever possible. Making nutritious food choices and maintaining a healthy gut microbiome with additional probiotics, such as Florify, may also help protect us from chemical pollutants. A very recent study on the relationship between the microbiome in the gut and Parkinson's disease notes: "Another function of the microbiome is to help the body rid itself of xenobiotics -- chemicals not naturally found in the body often arising from environmental pollutants"

EcoSense gave my little girl her health back. I can't choose one product because it was the change of all the laundry, and cleaning products from toxic to non-toxic, in other words, from store brand to Melaleuca. It helped my little girl get off her breathing treatments and her allergy medicines that she was on for her first three years of life. If I must choose one to highlight it would be Sol-U-Guard Botanical because a child with a weak immune system catches every bug. What better way to kill the germs and NOT replace the germs with toxins than to use the 100% Botanical disinfectant, Sol-U-Guard Botanical.
My favorite EcoSense product is Sol-U-Mel hands down! I put this product in my first order and it is a staple in my house! I clean my microfiber couches with it, add it to my Bissell rug cleaner; I spray it on the carpet when my dog has "accidents". We take it on vacations to spray the hotel beds and rooms, or when my son has accidents in the car driving through the mountains! I add it to my extra stinky laundry and I spray it in my dishwasher between washes. It's everything and more and I can't say enough about it!! Thank you Sol-U-Mel and thank you Melaleuca!!
My favorite EcoSense product is MelaPower! For years, 20 years and more, before we were married, my husband suffered a horrible rash in places I won't mention. Let's just say anywhere he could sweat, the rash would be there, worse in the hot summer months. Sometimes it would be so bad the rashes would become raw and bleed, scarring his skin. Thinking it might be the laundry soap, for 7 years of our marriage I tried all I knew, extra rinses with vinegar in the wash, changing wash soap, even the dermatologist didn't help with prescription creams. I was at my wits end. I was so sad for his suffering. Then one day in 2014 I decided to become a Melaleuca customer. Not thinking anything about the laundry soap. I just wanted a healthier clean for our household, without chemicals. As soon as my first order arrived, I was so excited; I washed "all" of our clothes. Again, not giving it much thought, I noticed about two weeks later, my husband wasn't complaining of his rashes. It was in the hottest part of the summer. I asked him about it, and he said, "huh yeah I noticed it's gone ... I'm not burning, itching, or anything!" I cried, Thank You God for leading me to Melaleuca! My husband is allergic to store bought laundry soap, body wash and deodorant. We don't have a doctor's diagnosis, but the proof is in the pudding. That was 3 years ago and my husband doesn't suffer the rashes anymore, after switching to MelaPower.
I used to say Sol-U-Mel, hands down, because I can do almost anything with Sol-U-Mel. It sanitizes it cleans, takes out stains, relieves pain when you add to a hot bath and more. But then Melaleuca came out with a product called Safe & Mighty Toilet Bowl Cleaner. I just love how easy it is now to clean the toilets in our house. I just squirt Safe & Mighty around the rim of the bowl, set the bottle on the toilet and come back in 5 minutes and swish and the toilet is clean. Then I go to the other one and do the same thing. Toilets clean and sanitized and job is DONE!
I have been using the EcoSense products for 10 years now and I love all of the products. The EcoSense dishwasher detergent is so much better than any others on the market. My dishes don't have a film on them and are sparkly clean. I also don't have the undissolved fillers left behind on my clean dishes like store brands did. Also other brands left a film on the inside of my dishwasher that we would have to deep clean by hand. With EcoSense I never have to worry about that!
I have been using all of the EcoSense products a very long time and love them all. But my favorite would have to be the PreSpot. When my oldest daughter was engaged, I promised to sew for her the "dress of her dreams". Money was tight because her Daddy had passed away 5 years before. But I succeeded in sewing her wedding gown to her heart's content. It was beautiful! On her wedding day she spilled something on the bodice. I took it to the dry cleaners, showed them the spot and asked to have it removed, wrapped in blue to retain the color so it could be used again. Eight years later my second daughter was engaged! We took the box out of storage and found the spot a deep shade of brown! There was NO POSSIBILITY of covering or doing anything with it. I had no money and no time to create another one so I asked God to help me. He brought PreSpot to mind. With a wet wash cloth, an old clean toothbrush and PreSpot I went to work. I sprayed the PreSpot on, brushed toward the center with the brush and WIPED THE WHOLE SPOT OFF COMPLETELY with the wet cloth. Praise The Lord!
Tough & Tender is my favorite EcoSense product! The spray bottle is next to the kitchen faucet. I save water and time when I grab it for so many clean-ups on the counter, stovetop, table, cabinets, floor and even as a quick hand cleaner. My husband sprays fresh fruit before rinsing for a fresher, cleaner taste. When the glass and crystal need to shine, a dampened cloth with a Tough & Tender spray dissolves the mineral deposits. Mixed with a little Lemon Brite cleans my kitchen floor beautifully, even the light gray grout stays cleaner. It amazed me when the little brown ants stopped dead in their tracks as I sprayed them with Tough & Tender. The entry points were sprayed, and the ants didn't trail in after their "friends." On vacation to the cabin I always take my EcoSense products knowing that I can have the cleanliness of home as well as protect the environment from toxic cleaning chemicals. I truly feel safe from cleanser poisons when I use Tough & Tender. I feel one with nature using Melaleuca EcoSense products!
It was 1995 when I became a Melaleuca Customer. Because my main reason for doing so was of its environmental impact, at first I bought only the EcoSense products; however, when I saw how much less I was paying, I decided to try the nutritional products. The Vitality Pack made a difference to my health immediately! I had developed arthritis as a result of minor injuries, so when Replenex was available in Canada I decided to give it a try for a month. The result was amazing! The day after I took the first tablet I realized I could wash my back without any problem! I had no trouble with elbow pain or stiffness; for the first time in years I could bounce out of bed with no discomfort! Now we have the Peak Performance products, and at 83 years old I can still get out of bed and go to work with no hesitation! It has been a mainstay ever since! Melaleuca is the best company anywhere!
I love the $99 EcoSense Pack! It has everything! Laundry, kitchen, bath and more! All the mixing bottles, too! When I am enrolling a new customer I always mention this because most new customers want to get the toxics out of their home! The EcoSense Pack saves time and money and voila! A toxic free home!
