EcoSprout Review and Giveaway

EcoSprout is a new cloth diaper friendly laundry detergent.  I received two different scents, warm vanilla sugar and sandalwood vanilla.  I had such a hard time picking out which one I was going to try.  I ended up choosing the warm vanilla sugar....okay, I lie....my husband had to choose for me.

I loved this detergent.  It works VERY well.  I was able to use the whole sample size (2 oz) before I wrote this review and I'm telling ya, no stink issues here!  The diapers are ALWAYS smelling fresh!  Also, it just smells SO yummy!!!!


This detergent got out even the toughest poop marks, diarrhea from being sick.  I'm telling you, for real, I am IN LOVE with this product!

I also did a soak with this detergent.  Well, two soaks (because I have that many diapers lol)...and boy was that nasty!  The water was so brown and yuckie...ew...that's the only way I know how to describe it.  But, I loved it so much that I had to buy another batch of it.  I have to admit that this is the very first time I have ever committed to a laundry detergent.  It is the first full size bag I have ever bought, no joke.  I have been living off of samples that I purchased and stuff in hopes of finding one that I liked.  Well, I have been searching since August (when I realized how much I really didn't like Rockin' Green) and I have finally FINALLY found one!!!  So happy about this!!!

Because this is a new company, I am going to write all their background information also.  Please remember that these are not my own words, these are the words from the VERY talented maker, Jared (btw, amazing that a daddy is getting into this!  very exciting!):

"The company was started by myself, a WAHM.  I was looking for a cloth diaper detergent that was great for not just diapers, but for my entire family's laundry.  It was important to me that the detergent I used was non-toxic, natural, eco-friendly, and sensitive for my baby's bottom.  After experimenting for several months and doing a ton of research, Eco Sprout was born.

"I am still very small and manufacture the detergent myself.  The detergent is free from perfumes, dyes, brighteners, enzymes, phosphates, & is 100% biodegradable.  It is safe for cloth diapers, and they not only come out of the wash smelling clean, but so far, we have noticed zero to very little ammonia smell both when my son pees and even in the diaper pail 2 days later!

"We offer the following sents: Lavender Chamomile, Warm Vanilla Sugar, Fresh Linen, Vanilla Sandalwood, In The Buff, which is our Unscented version, and our seasonal scent which is currently Cinnamon Sticks.  The scents will wash out, so they are just for your enjoyment.

"Here is the pricing information:
Lrg. bags (48 oz) which will do 48-96 loads. Cost: $13.98
Sm. bags (24 oz) which will do 24-48 loads. Cost: $7.98
Sample bags (2 oz) which will do 2-4 loads. Cost: $1.75
Shipping is a flat rate $4.95 for 1 bag, and $9.95 for 2 bags
Shipping for a sample back is $0.80"

  33. I seldom leave comments, but i did a few searching and
    wound up here "EcoSprout Review and Giveaway". And I do have 2 questions
    for you if you do not mind. Is it just me or does it give the impression like some of the
    remarks appear like left by brain dead visitors?
    :-P And, if you are posting at additional sites, I'd like to keep up with everything fresh you have to post. Could you list of the complete urls of your public sites like your twitter feed, Facebook page or linkedin profile?
