Seventh Generation Really Cleans Up!

3:22 PM


We've used their products on and off for awhile now, but we were recently reintroduced to some newer disinfecting products by Seventh Generation! Here are some of the things that we've been using around the house to get "Spring Clean!"

Bathroom cleaner - I love that this product works well on stinky surfaces (we do have 4 boys in the house) and doesn't overpower me with a chemical smell.

Wipes - The wipes are probably my favorite! They make wiping up the bathroom sink (toothpaste and yuckies) a breeze, and I feel OK about my daughter using them to help around the house.

These products have worked well to disinfect my grungiest areas, and have gone a long way towards helping me rid my home of not just germs --- but also toxic cleaners that could endanger my family!


Wanna Win? To be entered to receive a Cleaning Kit from Seventh Generation (includes products, a cleaning caddy made from recycled plastic, some paper towels, and a copy of the book Conscious Kitchen), just comment on this post with one thing you're doing to make your home cleaner and safer this year! You have until April 20th at 11:59 am CST to get your entries in, and you can enter every day! (Just comment as directed for your first entry, and for each entry after that, type "Today's Entry!")


Giveaways are subject to complete site rules. Open to persons 18+ U.S. only, please. (Be sure to give us a way to reach you if you win, and remember that we will never use your email or contact info for anything other than to send your prize.) Good luck, and be sure to check out all of our other giveaways!


*Seventh Generation provided me with free product, information, and a gift pack prize through MyBlogSpark.

  1. We are cleaning out clutter - that is our main goal. We are also starting to baby proof our home. He's only five months now... but time will fly and we'll be glad we started early! This win would be great considering I've been wanting to start using safe cleaners in our home exclusively. This would give me that jump start I need!

    Thanks.
