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

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.

  31. Jo Carroll
    16th June 2017 / 1:44 pm

    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?

  32. jo liddement
    16th June 2017 / 4:30 pm

    It is very important to use only eco friendly cleaning products in my house and have been doing so for years now.

  33. Sheena Batey

  42. Diane Carey
    20th June 2017 / 5:07 pm

    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

  43. Kelly Hirst

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

  46. 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.

  47. Jayne Townson
    22nd June 2017 / 10:06 am

    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.

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

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

  49. Judith Allen

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

  64. Emma Walton

  67. Diane Wareing
    3rd July 2017 / 11:03 pm

    It is something I find important. However, I can’t say I always stick to buying it because being on a budget I often find \i have to get whatever is affordable that week.

  68. Aaron Broad
    5th July 2017 / 10:42 am

  72. lila taylor

    It is extremely important to me as the world is sadly already being poisoned with chemicals, including us humans and animals. The more natural the better in my book.

  73. Jordan Jarmain
    7th July 2017 / 10:54 pm

    I always buy eco friendly products for washing my little girls clothes with as I like to protect her skin. We also use eco friendly products to clean the benches and floors x

  74. Kim Styles
    8th July 2017 / 12:29 pm

    its so important to buy organic and eco friendly products we use far too many chemical and artificial products on the land and ourselves- endangering ourselves and the planet

  75. Carol Thomas
    8th July 2017 / 6:03 pm

    I try and make my own cleaning products where possible with natural ingredients already in the home, such as lemon juice, vinegar, bicarb and son on. Where I can’t I buy natural products and I am always looking out for natural ways to clean. Where I have to buy such as washing powder I buy professional size boxes online to say on packaging and transportation as when you buy bigger it lasts longer

    Quiet important, but at the same time a bit too expensive :/

  104. 14th July 2017 / 11:53 am

    I switched to natural products for cleaning when my youngest was born due to eczema. Chemicals makes it worse. I also have contact dermatitis as does 2 of my children. So switching was obvious and has helped our skin since

    15th July 2017 / 6:16 am

    I have to be honest and say that actually I have only been more thoughtful about it over the last couple of years. Head in the Sand syndrome – I just hope more people start to appreciate the damage unfriendly products do and try their bit too – better late than never

  110. Laura Asplin
    15th July 2017 / 7:28 am

    I love the fact that we are getting more choice on environmental products. Hopefully the support for these products will be there so they can carry on icreasing their ranges.

    I much prefer eco friendly products but I still have one or two mainstream brands that I haven’t managed to wean out of my routine yet. My pet peeve with big non eco brands is normally the synthetic scents they use which can be quite overpowering.

  113. Samantha R
    21st July 2017 / 10:39 am

    At the moment it isn’t essential for me to be honest – a good price would probably win. I think I need to be educated a bit more about the available brands and benefits.

  114. john prendergast
    22nd July 2017 / 12:50 pm

    I buy them when there on offer as they are more expensive than mainstream brands

  115. Nicki simpson
    23rd July 2017 / 8:37 am

    I generally buy whatever brand is on special offer (just being honest) but I believe if I knew enough about the benefits of eco friendly then I’m sure I could be converted

  116. Heather brannan
    23rd July 2017 / 2:19 pm

    I want eco friendly products for my home and my family. I also want what’s best for the environment.

  119. Laura Farnworth
    24th July 2017 / 11:28 pm

    Very important, I like to choose eco friendly products and not tested on animals but cost is a factor too.

  120. Sadiyya Maryam
    25th July 2017 / 9:57 am

    I do try to buy natural products that are free from chemicals both to help the environment and also because my daughter has really sensitive skin with her eczema. Only wish they were more reasonably priced.

  121. Janet Ashenden
    25th July 2017 / 11:41 am

    I buy natural products whenever I can, though they aren’t always available locally

  122. Susan B
    25th July 2017 / 3:53 pm

    As every years passes, it becomes more important to me to play a more active role in choosing the best green household products.

  123. James Harris
    26th July 2017 / 1:42 pm

    I tend to be more concerned with the quality of what they do, rather than if they are natural or eco-friendly. Still I would like to give these a try.

  124. Amanda Gregory
    26th July 2017 / 4:47 pm

    It is difficult for me. I manage holiday cottages and provide the cleaners for them all. We have to ensure that we are careful about using anything that might aggravate allergies but also need to ensure things are sparkling clean. These products might be the answer.

  125. jackie grout
    26th July 2017 / 5:23 pm

    Its very important as I have Asthma and most cleaning products irritate me & I believe its better for my granddaughters I don’t want them ingesting harmful chemicals.

  126. Melanie Pennie
    26th July 2017 / 7:14 pm

    It’s important for me to buy natural and eco-friendly cleaning products as I have eczema and really sensitive skin. Some products we’ve used in the past have aggravated my condition. Just wish that they could be slightly cheaper so more people would use them.

  127. hannah wood

  130. Adrian Bold

    Its extremly important in our house. Both my daughter and I have a lot of allergies and at 6 due to issues she puts everything in her mouth plus it teaches them that they can get rid of dirt and grime without the need for harmful chemicals.

    It’s important to me to try to use eco friendly products where I can, so long as they do the job and I don’t have to use large quantities to get results.

    It’s important to me as my son has eczema and I don’t like the thought of all the chemicals that are released into the water system each time we do some washing.
