How would you like to start off the new year by winning a $50 gift certificate to Ava Anderson Non-Toxic? Wouldn't that be awesome?
Well, here's your chance to try. But first, kindly read my review and then enter in the Rafflecopter below.
As I stated in my previous review of Ava Anderson Non-Toxic products (mascara, liquid hand soap and eye cream), I was sent a wonderful lot of products to try. While I already told you how much I loved the mascara, there is another product I love even more -- the dishwasher pods. Oh.my.goodness. This is seriously the best dishwasher detergent I have ever tried! My glasses and dishes look brand new!
However, that wasn't my first reaction to using it. I even sent Nancy Brown, the gracious consultant who sent me the products, and told her I didn't like the dishwasher detergent at all. I didn't know what to do because she'd been so kind to send me all these products and I hated writing a negative review. But my reviews are my honest opinions of products, so I certainly couldn't lie. Nancy was surprised by my reaction, as everyone else seemed to be raving about the detergent. She even contacted the home office and they said they hadn't had a single complaint. "Give it a couple more tries," she advised. And so I did. By the 3rd load, I was in love. I guarantee that you will be, too, if you give the pods a try. I use one pod per load with vinegar in the rinse dispenser. My glasses are shiny!!
I also have been using the laundry pods, which I like as well. I find them comparable to the other natural laundry products I've been using for the last couple of years. The clothing has a delightfully fresh scent coming out of the washer and that's a perk, as the other products I use do not have any kind of scent.
In addition to the pods for laundry and dishes, Nancy also sent me the dishwashing liquid. As with most natural dishwashing liquids, it does not produce many suds, but it works well to clean my Green Pans, which I don't put in the dishwasher. It does seem to 'glop' out in larger amounts than needed, since you really only need a small amount to get the job done. It is a thick liquid with a pleasant scent.
From my experience with the products I tried, I am convinced that Ava Anderson Non-Toxic is a company I proudly stand behind. They know what they're doing when they put out a product. If I could choose only 2 items, there is no question it would be the dishwasher pods and the mascara. Both products rate higher than a 10 on my own personal 1 - 10 scale.
So check out the website and see the products for yourself. Even if you win the $50 gift certificate, you can still order some products ahead of time because you'll find lots more to buy once you win!
Feel free to email Nancy if you have any questions.
The giveaway runs from today through Dec. 31st. Winner will be announced on New Year's Day!
