So, you can imagine my giddiness when my order of Laundry Soap from Under the Willow came with a sample of Carrie’s newest creation: Cottage & Castle, an all-purpose cleanser.
Regular readers may remember – if you’re not forgetful like I am – that I’ve raved about Under the Willow’s products, in particular her Laundry Soap, which come in a range of scents.
Anyway, I’m always game for trying new cleansers, especially earth-friendly ones. So I used Cottage & Castle on my bathroom sinks, bathtub, and Corian kitchen sink.
Cottage & Castle comes in a powder form. The directions are simple: sprinkle, then scrub with a wet washing cloth, rinse. Carrie also sells microfiber cloth; I used a sponge and that worked great too.
I don’t have granite bathroom sinks and my tub is just fiberglass, but Castle & Cottage did a fantastic job on all those surfaces. It also made the tap and spigot shine, shine, shine! And a little bit went a long way.
The ultimate test was on my Corian sink. The instructions that came with the Corian countertops said to use only non-abrasive scrubbers and Bon-Ami cleanser. Well, guess what? Cottage & Castle worked at least as well as Bon-Ami, plus, it has an incredible scent!
I’ve mentioned this before, but I’m a scent gal. Scents calm me, make me smile, or transport me to a far-away time or place. So having that lovely, but not overpowering, scent in Cottage & Castle definitely did it for me. I don't normally smile while I'm cleaning, but Cottage & Castle put a smile on my face.
In honor of Small Business Saturday, I’m offering one of my readers a chance to win a package of Cottage & Castle. You can see for yourself what a great product this is!
If Laundry Soap is more your style, you may choose to get a package of that instead, if you win.
