This thread is for the 250 MNers trying out the new Ecover Multi-Action wipes

Please add your feedback below - all comments welcome. Everyone who was part of the test and who adds their feedback will be entered into a prize draw where one winner will get a £150 JL voucher as a thank you.

1. What were your thoughts and feelings about Ecover prior to trying them? Had you used any Ecover products before?
2. Do you currently use wipes as part of your cleaning regime? Is it because they are convenient, value for money or for other reasons?
3. Ecover Multi-Action Wipes can be used throughout your home - from toilet seats to highchairs - where did you test your wipes? Did they do the job?
4. How important is it that the wipes are Anti-bacterial and kill 99.9% of bacteria? Do you use any Anti-bacterial products for cleaning or hygiene?
5. Thinking about the wipes, did you find the packaging easy to use and carry all the information you needed? Did you like the fragrance? Did the wipes retain enough moisture to get the job done?
6. The wipes are FSC sourced and biodegradable - how did you dispose of your wipes once used? Would you pop them on the compost heap or perhaps with food waste? They are not flushable, is this problem?
7. Would you buy the products in the future? If it came up in conversation do you think you'd recommend to a friend? Why? If not why?
8. Having now tried Ecover Multi-Action Wipes has it changed your perception of the brand? If so, how?
9. Finally, using a 5-star rating with 5 being excellent and 1 being poor? what would you give Ecover Multi-Action Wipes?

thanks and good luck

1. I like the idea of a "green" brand because I want to limit the amount of chemicals that my children come into contact with in the home. I have used Ecover washing up liquid before and liked the fragrance, although found it not quite as effective as other brands. I am a huge fan of Ecover stain remover for laundry. It's the only thing that reliably gets stains out of baby clothes.
2. I use anti-bacterial wipes on the toilet, door handles, bins, high chairs and other places where there are lots of germs. I like the fact that you wipe and then throw away so the germs are not lingering in the house.
3. The toilet, door handles, bins, high chairs and other places where there are lots of germs. They were a bit too wet and left annoying streaks on the bin.
4. Very important. I only use wipes for cleaning or hygiene.
5. The packaging did not appear to be different from other brands. It was easy to use and carried all the information I needed. I liked the fragrance but the wipes were too wet.
6. I put them in the bin. I didn't consider putting them on the compost heap. Food waste goes in the wormery and I'm not sure the wipes would be suitable for worms. I never flush wipes so not being flushable is not a problem.
7. No because they were much too wet and left streaks on surfaces. I wouldn't recommend them to a friend because I was disappointed with them.
8. Slightly disappointed because I have been pleasantly surprised by the effectiveness of other Ecover products.
9. 3 stars for the green credential and the fragrance.

1. I had never used them before, eager to try them.
2.Yes I often use wipes. mostly for convenience and for quick clean ups between big cleaning sessions!
3. Tested them all over the place! found them better for small areas eg childs little table as wipes not very big and found that i was useing more than one to clean big surfaces.
4. very important when wiping toys, tables for children etc.
5. packaging fine for purpose, fragrance nice, very moist but i dont mind that. wouldnt class them as large though so thats a bit misleading.
6. they went on the compost heap!
7. would buy if on offer as when i have seen them before they have been relatively expensive compared to other brands.
8.would be more tempted to try it if i saw products in future
9.4 as they are good but not outstanding.

1. What were your thoughts and feelings about Ecover prior to trying them? Had you used any Ecover products before?

I thought they were expensive and wouldn't be as effective as regular brands.

2. Do you currently use wipes as part of your cleaning regime? Is it because they are convenient, value for money or for other reasons?

No, I prefer to use washable and reusable cleaning cloths as they are more economical.

3. Ecover Multi-Action Wipes can be used throughout your home - from toilet seats to highchairs - where did you test your wipes? Did they do the job?

I used them on worktops, sinks & basins, stove top, spills on hard surfaces and the floor.

4. How important is it that the wipes are Anti-bacterial and kill 99.9% of bacteria? Do you use any Anti-bacterial products for cleaning or hygiene?

All cleaning products are anti-bacterial confused even soap.

5. Thinking about the wipes, did you find the packaging easy to use and carry all the information you needed? Did you like the fragrance? Did the wipes retain enough moisture to get the job done?

Packaging was easy to use but I don't think it would stand up to infrequent use as I'd be concerned the wipes would dry out. The fragrance was pleasant but unimportant to me. The wipes seemed moist enough but not sure how long that would last.

6. The wipes are FSC sourced and biodegradable - how did you dispose of your wipes once used? Would you pop them on the compost heap or perhaps with food waste? They are not flushable, is this problem?

Binned with household rubbish. Would like them to be flushable if that didn't affect it's cleaning properties.

7. Would you buy the products in the future? If it came up in conversation do you think you'd recommend to a friend? Why? If not why?

Possibly not unless they were on offer as I don't think I'd have enough use for them.

8. Having now tried Ecover Multi-Action Wipes has it changed your perception of the brand? If so, how?

They wipes were effective so yes they have changed my opinion.

9. Finally, using a 5-star rating with 5 being excellent and 1 being poor? what would you give Ecover Multi-Action Wipes?

1- have used some washing stuff before. Like the idea of Eco products
2 - I don't buy cleaning wipes but occasionally use baby wipes for convenience!!
3 - I used the wipes in the kitchen, mainly on the table & work top. I liked them..
4 - I really liked that they were anti bacterial, don't often buy products that are so having them in a wipe form is really convenient.
5 - packaging was easy. Liked the smell. Thought the moisture came off the product quite quickly though.
6 - I put them in the bin. Didn't realise I could put them in the food recycling bin, would have don't if I'd known. Like the idea of flushable wipes, if I was cleaning the bathroom.
7 - yes, depending on price. I liked them, would buy & would recommend.
8 - no
9 - 4*. Thought moisture came off to quickly so wipe didn't last long.
