Seventh Generation Healthy Home Starter Kit Giveaway!
“In our every deliberation, we must consider the impact of our decisions on the next seven generations.” –from the Great Law of the Iroquois Confederacy
Seventh Generation was created to help the environment while still allowing you to clean and maintain your home in a convenient manner. The Seventh Generation line includes everything from household cleaners to diapers and paper towels. They donate 10% of their profits to organizations that work for positive change. Seventh Generation is a company taking social responsibility. The never test on animals and use plant based agents to help keep your home clean. Lots of the cleaners are also biodegradable.
I have been using Seventh Generation cleaning products since I got pregnant and realized that I needed and wanted to be careful about what kind of products I had around my then unborn child and myself. I was getting particularly sick of the bleach smell in my dishwasher detergent, and then I changed to Seventh Generation Automatic Dishwasher Gel and never turned back! Though I cannot recommend this particular use to everyone, I also used the Natural Dish Liquid to get diaper rash balm out of my curious daughter’s hair. I will say it left her hair nice and shiny!
When I read that they had come out with a new disinfecting line, I contacted them right away to know more. Because Seventh Generation is such an amazing company they sent me a bag of their most wonderful cleaning items (including the new disinfecting line) to try out for myself. Good news readers! One lucky Product Mommy reader will also receive a bag of these same items listed and reviewed below! Here is my review of each of these wonderful products:
Natural Toilet Bowl Cleaner has an Emerald Cypress & Fir Scent . It cleans the toughest toilet stains and but without an offensive chemical smell.
Tub & Tile Cleaner has the same Emerald Cypress & Fir Scent. I had stains on my tub from too many bubble baths that I could never seem to get off. I admit, I did not really even know they were there, until I used this cleaner and saw how white my tub could actually be!
The Natural Shower Cleaner is a Green Mandarin & Leaf scent and smells so fresh and clean. We use this to spray down our shower after every other use, to keep it clean, free of mold and smelling fresh.
The new Disinfecting Bathroom Cleaner has a Lemongrass & Thyme Scent. It kills 99.99% of germs botanically (including Influenza A and H1N1). I was looking for a safer disinfecting cleaners for the bathroom counters and toilet, and this is it! It smells more of thyme than lemongrass to me. I will say, you must like the scent of thyme (which I love). This cleans so well, and I was able to do my whole bathroom (counter first, then toilet) with two paper towels.
The Natural Glass & Surface is Free & Clear (unscented). This does wonders to eliminate little hand prints and streaks from your glass surfaces. We also use it to clean the outside of our oven as it shines it up so nicely. A home with Chrome cannot live with this cleaner!
The Free& Clear Natural All Purpose Cleaner is great for the kitchen and for the non-porous surfaces in your living areas. I do not like scented products in my kitchen because I feel like they interfere with lovely food smells. It cleans beautifully!
The Disinfecting Multi-Surface Cleaner is great to use to really disinfect your home in any area that may need it. It has the same Lemongrass & Thyme scent of the other Disinfecting products from Seventh Generation. I like this after we have any meat or egg products on our counter-tops to kill the harmful germs that come from raw meat.
The Disinfecting Wipes are great for a quick clean, and one cloth goes very far. I used one of these cloths to clean my entire bathroom to test it out. I am obsessed with these as I am a total anti-germ warrior.
The 100% Recycled Paper Towels are perfect to use with any of the cleaners mentioned above. They are not bleached or dyed and are more absorbent than my old paper towels.
One lucky reader with get a full-sized bottle of all of the cleaners mentioned above, including the paper towels, all in a lovely Seventh Generation reusable bag. If you would like to win this Healthy Home Starter Kit, please enter below. Good Luck!
