Seventh Generation Review and Giveaway!

This review and giveaway is LOOOOOOONG overdue! But, better late than never, right? ;-)

It seems that with having little ones around, there never ceases to be tons of house cleaning to be done. It's even more important to keep up with house cleaning and disinfecting with the kiddos, to keep germs from spreading and keep them healthy, most of all. I came across Seventh Generation's products, and learned they are a Vermont company! I contacted them immediately, and asked if I could do a review of some of their products, and Meghan got back to me quickly, and told me to go ahead and pick out a kit of my choice. I chose the Free and Clear Start Kit, which came with these items:

Disinfecting multi surface cleaner
Disinfecting bathroom cleaner
Disinfecting wipes
Laundry detergent
Liquid fabric softener
Dish liquid
All purpose cleaner
Auto dish pacs
Glass cleaner
Natural paper towels
Seventh Generation recycled bag

I received the kit within a few short days, and immediately got to use with everything. Some of the products contained a Thyme scent, which took a little getting used to, but it goes away fast, and most importantly, the products CLEAN and sanitize WELL, which is the very important point.

The bathroom cleaner made out tub and shower shine, and the glass cleaner worked great on our windows. I loved the laundry detergent and fabric softener, and it made our clothes oh so soft and cuddly, and with no harsh scents or chemicals, which is a huge bonus!

With two messy toddlers, there are many various surfaces to clean all day, every day, and the multi purpose cleaner and disinfecting wipes worked great for this, and all of the products lasted for a long time, since I only needed to use a small amount to get the jobs done, unlike some other products on the market today.

All in all, I am VERY happy with Seventh Generation products, and will continue using them for my disinfecting and cleaning needs in the future. They are a great company to work with on reviews such as this, as well. Service is friendly and fast, always a plus. ;-)

Now, for the good stuff...

I'd be interested in trying out the Seventh Generation dish soap. I like to use all natural products, and dish soap is especially important because it goes all over our dishes that we'll be eating from!
