Available as:

960g packet (Carton/box is made of 95 % recycled cardboard)

The Verdict

The box contains 32 tablets which are packaged into 16 plastic wrapped packets, each packet contains 2 of the Ecover bio tablets.

The tablets are put into the dispenser drawer of the washing machine, we have found that it works best if you crush them first (we do this inside the plastic packet before we open it) before using them, otherwise there was residue left in the drawer – this may just be something to do with our washing machine.  You can get Ecover Bio Washing Powder, the reason we chose the tablets was due to the box being smaller and easy to store plus there isn’t the hassle of measuring the power out and the mess it can create.

We use the bio tablets for washing towels and tea towels and also to prevent the build up of sludge in the washing machine caused by using non biological washing liquid at low temperatures.  The towels always smell pleasantly fresh (especially when used with Ecover Fabric Softener) but only have a very faint fragrance which isn’t strongly perfumed or overpowering.

Our family members all have sensitive skin and some have allergies, these Ecover Bio Washing Tablets have never irritated our skin or allergies.

We really like this product, we purchased it primarily because of the plant and mineral based ingredients (for our sensitive skin and allergies) but it still makes you feel good to know that you are using something that is also kind to the environment.
