I recently received a new American-made product called Washdrops that is designed to be a more environmentally friendly way to wash your car at home.  It arrived right around Earth Day and it got me thinking about how many wonderful American-made products our family uses to help us be a little more green. I decided to try making my first vlog, or video blog post, so I could show you first-hand some of the USA-made things we love because they help us care for the Earth.

Some of the products I shared in the video we have written about, such as SplashTags, Goodbyns *Goodbyns are no longer made in the USA* and Neat-os in the kitchen. Bonus points for those with eagle eyes to spot other made in USA products around the house such as Fiestaware, a KitchenAid Mixer, and an Eraselet.  Outside, I shared our compost bin, our drip irrigation system, our fuel-efficient Winnebago/Itasca motorhome, and then finally, I showed how easy it is to use Washdrops, even on a chilly windy day.

Washdrops Review

I really enjoyed reviewing this product because I usually put off washing the cars or the motorhome until it is a perfect day – and then I don't feel like doing the work on a perfect day!  But I absolutely had to film this vlog on a certain afternoon and it was not a very nice one.  I filled up the bucket with some warm water (for the benefit of my hands, not the vehicle).  I went around the motorhome, panel by panel, slathering on the solution made from 1 oz of washdrops for each gallon. (I'd use one gallon for a car, 3-4 for a motorhome.) Then I polished it clean with a microfiber towel. Up high, I just used an extendable brush and then threw the towel over the brush to dry.  It was easy. It was fast. It didn't get me all wet and cold on a windy spring day. And it was oh so satisfying to see how shiny it made the RV.  If a car was really muddy or dirty, I might spray it off well first, but for regular washing and polishing, it worked just like it was supposed to and I stayed dry.  It clearly used a fraction of the water that washing usually does, which could be especially important for drought areas.  I was also glad to know that Washdrops are biodegradeable, solvent-free, butyl-free, phosphaste-free, amonia-free, and safe to pour out on a lawn or flowerbed.

I have added Washdrops to the USA Love List Shop or you can order directly on Amazon and through the Washdrops website.  [Disclosure: USA Love List received this product for review purposes and was compensated for this post.
