Holiday Clean Up is a Breeze with Seventh Generation {Review and Giveaway}

Seventh Generation has been a staple in my home for quite awhile! I am attached to a greener approach to cleaning, and have been for years. The thought of my house being filled with harmful chemicals is enough to make me…well you know. I have used other green cleaning products, but nothing cuts through the boys’ dirt and grime like Seventh Generation. So when I was given the opportunity to review an amazing kit of new products from Seventh Generation, of course I was delighted!

The Seventh Generation Holiday Cleaning Kit includes:

  • Natural Dish Liquid
  • Automatic Dishwasher Pacs
  • Natural Laundry Detergent Packs
  • Wood Cleaner
  • Natural Hand Wash
I try to put dishes in the dishwasher whenever possible because I’m lazy I would rather be spending time with my boys than cleaning the dishes. But for those extra messy pots and pans or my crock pot dish, usually a good scrub is in order. The Natural Dish Liquid is great at cutting through the grease of last nights’ meatloaf pan, but was gentle enough to leave my hands feeling soft and clean.
These little Dishwasher Pacs are amazing! The first time I used them, I popped one in, turned on the dishwasher and let it do it’s thing! My dishes came out squeaky clean. No marks, no food residue, no stains. Not one dish was left “unclean”. I was surprised considering the dishwasher tabs I had previously used took TWO tabs for my dishes to come out “semi-clean” and I was always washing dishes after the dishwasher was done!
 I was most excited to try the Laundry Packs, because I just love doing laundry {insert eye rolling}. No, really on a serious note, all of the boys, including Brian, have sensitive skin, so I have always used a chemical and dye free detergent to wash laundry. But I love the convenience of popping one of these bad boys into the washer instead of pouring, measuring and then pouring again, plus a drips on the floor or getting detergent on my hands. It’s also safe for HE washers too, so it worked perfectly in my Samsung front load HE washer, and the clothes came out clean and fresh!
 The wood cleaner worked wonders on my all my wood furniture. It didn’t leave an oily film like most wood cleaners do, and it seemed to bring back the original luster to my bedroom suite. I have solid wood dark cherry furniture in my master bedroom, it’s only about two years old and seems to lack the shine and beauty it once held. So naturally I started there, using the wood cleaner on the a night stand, and then a dresser, and soon I had a Master Bedroom full of “new” furniture! Surely this will be a key part of your bedroom solutions.
I will admit I am not fond of lavender scented anything. The smell just seems so over powering and brings a tingle to my nose. So when I opened my box of Seventh Generation goodies to find this Lavender scented hand soap (and the dish washing liquid which is also Lavender scented)…I thought oh no, Lavender {insert sad face}. But I was pleasantly surprised when I tried this hand soap! The scent is magnificent not too strong, and it leaves my hands feeling clean and soft. I (and the boys) use this hands soap everyday. I (we) absolutely love it!
