Seventh Generation Review and Giveaway!

Before I had my baby I wasn't too concerned with using naturally safe products. I guess I just never really thought about it. Since then I have become much more aware of what I am using around my family. At first I began small and just used naturally safe products on her toys because they were always going in her mouth. But lets face it, she's crawling now so she's all over the place! I knew it was time to change my cleaning products to things that I feel are safe.

I contacted Seventh Generation in the hopes of reviewing one of their many products. They allowed to choose an entire kit! I chose the "Free and Clear Kit" that comes with a great variety of products. I got to try wipes, sprays, dish detergent, laundry detergent and more!


So I went to town cleaning. I was really happy with all of the products. I love that the products don't have strong fumes. The All Purpose Cleaner is a dream because I can just float from room to room and clean the surfaces I need to. I even used it on our sliding glass door and it didn't leave any streaks. I also love the disinfecting wipes! You know me and wipes.

And what I was really excited about was the laundry detergent and fabric softener. I only use free and clear detergent, so that was great. But as a child I was allergic to fabric softener, so I don't use it for myself or my daughter. Now I can! This fabric softener is hypo-allergenic and non-irritable. Yay!

(* Please note: This kit comes with some disinfectant sprays and wipes. The Disinfectants have Thymol scent (from Thyme oil). These are NOT considered free & clear, but they are great for immune-depressed households or those with small children. The scent dissipates quickly)

Free and Clear Kit Includes:
Disinfecting Multi-Surface
Disinfecting Bathroom
Disinfecting Wipes - 35 ct.
Laundry Detergent – F&C 32 oz
Liquid Fabric Softener – F&C 40 oz
Dish liquid
All- Purpose Cleaner
Auto-Dish Pacs
Glass Cleaner
Natural Paper Towels
Seventh Gen Recycled Bag

GIVEAWAY: One lucky reader will receive the same kit I did!

I've been a fan of Seventh Generation for a few years now (mostly their paper products and dish and laundry detergens) but haven't come even close to trying everything! I'm interested in the natural all surface cleaner, because my cat likes to drop her food on the kitchen floor and lick it from there. I don't want anything toxic on the floor, but I do want it clean!

Hi!

Of all of the 7th Generation products, I'd love to try their laundry detergent! I've swayed this way and that with products for my little one, even the standard baking soda!

This is actually one product that I have yet to try out yet :)
