Seventh Generation Cleaning Goodies Giveaway

Seventh Generation Cleaning Goodies Giveaway

As we speak, I am simultaneously potty training a two year-old and a four year-old. Littlest is ready, I think. She has been removing her own clothes and telling me she needs to go for a few weeks. Biggest… well Biggest is another story. His ASD means that we have been struggling with this for a two years and counting. We are making a last-ditch attempt before school. So far, things are going as well as we might have hoped. When you are being double-teamed by two novice potty-users, you better make sure you have a lot of cleaning products to hand and a washer and dryer poised to be in constant action. When Seventh Generation offered to send us a hamper of their brilliant, eco-friendly and all natural cleaning products to try, it seemed like pretty excellent timing.

Seventh Generation are a brand from the USA who have been making safe, plant-based products that really work for more than 25 years. That is great news for the planet and for those who are worried about using harsh products, particularly parents and those with sensitive skin. They sent me a huge hamper of goodies and FIVE lucky readers can win the same. Just check out the Rafflecopter at the end of this post.

Seventh Generation – The Products

We tried out Seventh Generation laundry detergent, Natural 4 x concentrated laundry detergent, toilet cleaner, all-purpose cleaner, washing up liquid (dish soap or liquid in the USA!) and glass and surface cleaner. One of the great things about these products is that many come in Free & Clear options.  This means that they are strong enough to get the job done but they contain no harsh fumes or fragrances.

My washing machine has done approximately twenty loads of laundry since we started potty-training four days ago. This means we have had ample opportunity to try both the Blue Eucalyptus and Lavender and the Free & Clear laundry detergent. I was pretty impressed with both. They coped well in my usual washing temperatures and lifted stains as well as coping with all our potty mishaps. I think this is something most people worry about when choosing less harsh, all natural cleaning products. Will it actually do a good enough job?

With Seventh Generation, I think the answer is yes.

Biggest contemplating her potty mishaps and how Seventh Generation can help

The cleaning spray has been great at cleaning up floor-based accidents and general toddler mess. The fact that it genuinely has no smell but still cleans is a huge plus for me. I am really sensitive to smells. I particularly dislike the synthetic, floral or citrus-type fragrances that cleaning products usually have. This means I sneeze a lot when cleaning. I also hate it when the smell lingers on my hands when washing up. The cleaning spray and washing-up liquid are genuinely odourless and I really appreciated that.

Overall, I think Seventh Generation products are the perfect choice for those who are environmentally conscious or those who are reluctant to use harsh smells and chemicals when looking after their family.

    It has to be an important factor in choosing cleaning products that they don’t dirty up and pollute the earth after they’ve been used…it’s really common sense or what is the point I guess?

    I know it is important for the environment. But it’s very rare I buy them because they are usually more expensive, and the ones that I have tried are not as good

  42. Kelly Hirst

    it is important but is a fine balance between cost and worth

  45. 22nd June 2017 / 5:08 am

    I try to buy environmentally products of all kinds when I can, but for cleaning, the results are an important consideration and many eco-products underperform so badly that they do more harm than good. So I’d be very interested in trying these.

  46. Jayne Townson

    I like to buy natural and eco-friendly cleaning products whenever I can, however money is tight and I often find these products very expensive and can’t always afford to pay extra.

  47. Alison Johnson
    22nd June 2017 / 7:37 pm

    It would be nice & I would buy them if the cost wasn’t too great.

    I like to buy eco friendly products, but my partner is rather fond of her Mr Muscle, there’s no getting round it.
