Ridge Organics - Product Review and Giveaway

I'll admit it I'm the kind of girl who is a surface cleaner. That means I'll wipe all the bench tops clean and make it look presentable and neat and tidy at a glance, but just don't go checking under the couch or fridge because those dust bunnies can be scary!

So when Ridge Organics offered to send me some cleaning products to try I was a little hesitant because that would mean I'd actually have to tackle those dust bunnies after all. Then I remembered I have Mr P and I's family of 30 arriving on the doorstop on Christmas Day, who will no doubt want to look around at all our recent renovations which includes where those dust bunnies are lurking.

It's time to give the house a good going over and make it spick and span!

Ridge Organics is an online company founded 3 years ago and run by husband and wife duo Jo and Nick. Jo, being a registered nurse was big on environmental issues and the health benefits of using natural products. Thus all their products are natural, certified organic, fair traded, and are good for our bodies and the environment. They stock everything from cleaning, to bath and body, to baby products.

I tried cleaning products from the Ecover range - I used the washing powder and after tearing open the box I realised the pourer was built into the side of the box and I probably didn't need to open the box lid at all. I couldn't find a scoop, so used one that I had. I used it for whites, darks and colours and all came out fresh and clean without smelling overpowering.

I also used the stain remover which got out the dirt and grease stains on Mr P's work shirts. I really liked the brush on the top of the remover so you could work in the product with the brush. I found it heaps easier than using a spray style stain remover that you have to rub in with your hands. This was my favourite product of the ones I received for that very reason!

Even though I have my awesome new dishwasher I still need to hand wash the pots and pans and some of my delicate items like my hand painted wine glasses. The washing up detergent had a lovely fresh lemony smell and left the glasses clean and streak free. It also fit in nicely in my cleaning caddy under the sink.

The multi purpose cleaner I used by filling up a bowl with warm water and adding half a cap full - I used it on all my granite bench tops in the kitchen, I cleaned the bathroom cabinet, the wall tiles and the glass basins, and even the laundry trough and toilet. You can use it on floors as well so I'm going to try it on my jarrah floorboards next. It's definitely a multi use product and would save you from having 5 different cleaners when essentially this can do them all in one.

I really liked using these products they did the job well and made everything smell fresh and clean. I would recommend these to people who like to use natural products that are safe for them and the environment.

  1. By having a cleaning routine and involving the whole family :)

  2. I try to stay on top of the housework as much as possible, and I try and involve my family

  3. Delegating and dividing duties amongst all household members.
    Benjamin T.

  4. I try and do all my housework on one set I stay up to date. The children help with jobs they are able to do as well. I keep all my cleaning products in a caddy for each different cleaning job so it saves me time & keeps cleaning organised abit more.

  5. Do a little cleaning every day - 15 minutes or so - so I don't have to spend hours on the weekend doing it :)

  6. Make it fun - Pump the music and get the kids involved. I also have something we're working towards to motivate them. "After we clean up the lounge room together then we can go across the road to the park."

  7. Save up and pay a cleaner to deep clean every 6 months. No arguments about who needs to clean the loo.

  8. I cook in large quantities and freeze in portions, saves heaps of time and is good because I don't like cooking

  9. I remind myself that the cleanliness of my house is not what I'll be remembered for on my headstone... so I ease off the gas a little when housework pressure mounts.

  10. I have a cleaning schedule on my fridge, which lists daily, weekly and monthly cleaning tasks for each day!
