Seventh Generation Cleaning Goodies Giveaway

Seventh Generation Giveaway Feature

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.

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.

  1. Me and my husband both have sensitive skin and, at the moment, use Ecover products. I’d love to give these products a try! x

  2. It’s all impotant to me to use eco friendly cleaning and beauty products. I’ve tried the 4x concentrated laundry liquid and I agree it’s fab.

  3. i try my hardest to do my part for the planet, there are enough people out there ruining it, so i like to think even the little things I do are a big help.

  4. It’s very important to me that the cleaning products I use don’t contain harsh chemicals that could harm the environment.

    1. I think it’s super important to try and buy eco friendly and sustainable products in order to make the planet healthier for the future generation!

  9. I prefer to use eco friendly products where I can but it’s something I’ve only just recently starting thinking about

  10. 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.

  11. 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.

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

  13. It’s very important as I don’t want to damage the environment or my my family’s health with chemicals!

  14. Very important, on a personal level I am very aware of the environment we live in but we also have to take a wider view to ensure we leave a safe planet for future generations

  15. It’s very important, especially as I have a lot of small furries in the house and therefore need to make sure I am not poisoning them!

  16. 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.

  21. 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

  22. 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

  23. It is important but sometimes finances dictate that I buy non eco friendly products. I do wish they were cheaper!

  29. I am expecting my first baby in a few weeks so for me it’s very important as I want him to only have gentle natural products near him

  30. I could do with these, moving out of my current abode and I’ll be seeking vegan-friendly products for the new one.

  31. 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

  32. 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.

  33. 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.

  34. 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.

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

  38. 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.
