Natural Eco Baby – Eat Cleaner Review {Green Resolutions Spotlight}

by Mama Chocolate on January 15, 2012

As everyone becomes more educated as to why buying organic produce is important, it can become increasingly discouraging to the mom feeding her family on a tight budget.

It is easy to find information online about The Dirty Dozen and the Clean Fifteen, which helps narrow down for you which fruits and vegetables are most important to buy organic, and which ones are safer to opt for a more affordable option.

We still can’t always afford buying those “dirty dozen” items only organic, and it narrows the variety on your table significantly, if you are trying to avoid pesticides or other nasty chemicals in your food. (Did you know apples, lettuce & carrots are in that “dirty dozen?” These are staples for us!)

We wash our produce, but water alone is not usually enough to get it truly clean and free of harmful pesticides, waxes or contaminants.

A vegetable wash is significantly more effective at removing nasties from your food, yet more affordable than purchasing all your produce organic. In our area, at least, organic food is 1.5-2x the price of non-organic.

Vegetable Wash

 

Natural Eco Baby carries dozens of green kitchen products, (and they have more coming!) and they sent me a three-pack of their Eat Cleaner 8-ounce fruit & vegetable wash spray bottles to review.

Before this, I had never used any kind of vegetable/fruit wash and hadn’t even done much research on them, but since discovering the Eat Cleaner brand, I am amazed at it’s affordability.

For only $13.47, you get three of these easy-to-use 8-ounce spray bottles!

The spray form is especially useful for cleaning your leafy greens, (many of which are in that nasty dirty dozen!) herbs, and delicate fruits.

Simply spray it on, let it sit for about 2 minutes and then rinse as usual. It is tasteless and odorless and check out the simple, safe ingredients:

* Water, citric acid, sodium citrate (naturally derived from citrus fruit), sea salt, vegetable glycerin, natural vegetable based cleanser, calcium ascorbate(antioxidant).

I am excited to have such a simple and affordable solution to the organic produce vs. grocery budget constraints issue!

 

For sturdier fruits and vegetables, (apples, carrots, bell peppers, etc,) and for on-the-go cleaning, Natural Eco Baby sells the handy Eat Cleaner Fruit & Vegetable Wipes!

These come in a convenient canister with 210 wipes for $22.59.

The wipes are a quick and easy, no-mess solution to cleaning your fruits and vegetables, and you can even use them to quickly sanitize counters, utensils and your hands!

The wipes include the same safe, all-natural ingredients as the spray, and are easy to use!

Katie likes to have an apple for a snack sometimes, and these wipes make it simple for me to make her food safer with no fuss.

 

 

I found the dispensing part of the canister to be a little stiff and difficult to pull the wipes out from, but I haven’t had ripping problems, and I’m sure the design helps to keep the wipes moist and effective.

Easy as can be!

It’s SO important to clean all those fruits and veggies that you spend your money on! These look slightly pricey to me, but a great product nonetheless.

I try to follow the dirty dozen list. Only organic apples, carrots, celery, strawberries, grapes, potatoes, and salad come in our house… I’m a little neurotic about it. The only thing we buy non organic that is on that list is kale (because our store doesn’t carry it), and it kills me every time. It would make me feel better if I could wash it with this!

These wipes would REALLY come in handy for me & the kids when we are out, and I didn’t even know they had something like this.

Thanks!

I’ve seen the produce cleaners at the grocery store, but I keep telling myself I’ll look at it next time. I’ve never even heard of the wipes, seems like a great idea for road trips. Thanks for sharing!
