If you’re a Target shopper, you’ve probably seen the displays for the retailer’s new household products line called Everspring.
Everspring includes 70+ items like laundry detergent, all-purpose cleaner and paper towels.
“Developed by Target’s internal design team as a down-to-earth solution that is up to Earth’s standards, Everspring products include ingredients and components that are derived from plants or use other renewable materials, as well as post-consumer recycled paper.”
What makes Everspring different compared to other “clean” brands like Mrs. Meyers, Seventh Generation and Method? The price, according to Target.
The retailer says Everspring products cost 20% less than comparable items.
I used a gift card that I earned through Fetch Rewards, my favorite cash back app, to purchase seven items from the new Everspring collection.
Should you give them a try? Read my product reviews to help you decide…
1. Everspring Free & Clear Liquid Laundry Detergent – 100 fl oz
I was skeptical about trying Everspring’s laundry detergent because I’ve never bought unscented laundry detergent before. To put it to the test, I washed dirty towels and a dog bed. The laundry detergent did a great job of removing the bad odors with both loads. Priced at $11.99 for a 100 fluid ounce container, it’s far from the cheapest laundry detergent at the store. However, it seems to be priced about the same as other eco-friendly brands. I’m not sure if I’ll purchase this item in the future.
2. Everspring 100% Recycled Paper Towels
I bought a two-pack of Everspring’s 100% recycled paper towels for $2.99 and started cleaning the house to see how the product compares to my preferred brands: Bounty, Kirkland Signature (Costco) and Presto (Amazon). My general rule is to wait for sales and buy high-quality paper towels when they’re around $1 a roll. I don’t like the cheap paper towels that are sold at dollar stores. Everspring’s paper towels felt a little rougher than my preferred brands, but they did a good job of cleaning up household messes. If I could find them on sale for closer to $1 a roll, I would definitely purchase them again.
3. Everspring Geranium & Herbs Liquid Dish Soap – 18 fl oz
An 18-ounce bottle of Everspring’s dish soap cost me $2.79, about $1 more than Palmolive. I thought Everspring’s product smelled nice and did a decent job of cleaning my dishes, but the soap is thin and doesn’t create as many bubbles as competitors like Palmolive and Dawn. I appreciate that Everspring uses a biodegradable formula and the product isn’t tested on animals. However, this was my least favorite item from the test.
4. Everspring Mandarin & Ginger Liquid Hand Soap – 12 fl oz
Next up is Everspring’s foaming hand soap, also priced at $2.79. The mandarin and ginger scent surprised me in a good way. I did find that the soap dried out my hands, so I had to apply lotion after using this soap. I’m a big fan of Mrs. Meyer’s hand soap (basil scent) and don’t think I’ll be switching to Target’s brand. Still, I enjoyed trying out this product.
5. Everspring Lemon & Mint Glass Cleaner – 28 fl oz
Move over, Windex! When I first sprayed Everspring’s glass cleaner on my bathroom mirror, I was hooked on the smell. I purchased the lemon and mint variety. The scent isn’t overpowering at all. As for the product performance, Everspring’s glass cleaner left surfaces with a streak-free shine. Priced at $2.99 for a 28 fluid ounce bottle, it’s slightly less expensive than Seventh Generation’s glass cleaner. I would definitely buy it again.
6. Everspring Lemon & Mint All Purpose Cleaner – 28 fl oz
Everspring’s all-purpose cleaner for $2.99 also has several fragrances to choose from, including lemon and mint. I used this product in the kitchen and bathroom, with good results. No film was left behind. If I had to choose a favorite item that I tested, this would be it — because of the smell. Target says the cleaner is “naturally fragranced” with plant extracts and essential oils. This one is a keeper!
7. Everspring Lavender & Bergamot Multi-Surface Cleaning Wipes
Everspring’s multi-surface cleaning wipes are designed to clean surfaces without ammonia or harsh fumes. I paid $2.89 for 35 lavender and bergamot-scented wipes. The scent of these wipes is subtle and pleasant. My issue was with using the product. The wipes were too thin, so I had to use multiple wipes for simple tasks. I typically only use cleaning wipes in my car, so this isn’t a product that I would buy on a regular basis.
If you purchase items from brands like Mrs. Meyers, Seventh Generation and Method, you’ll welcome the new choices from Target’s Everspring household products line.
Overall, I thought the products were high-quality and cost slightly less than other “clean” brands.
