Seventh Generation Cleans Up Nicely

Last week I ran out of bathroom cleaner. Really bad timing, as I had been putting off the whole cleaning of the bathroom for a while. Then I decided that maybe I'd clean up the various spills that had accumulated in the kitchen and discovered that we were out of paper towels. Miraculously though, the mail came and I received a nice package of cleaning supplies from Seventh Generation through MyBlogSpark.

I've been wanting to try out these products ever since I heard about the the diapers and how well they work. While I still haven't tried them, I can tell you that I'm pleased with the cleaning supplies. I always felt kinda bad about using toxic cleaning supplies, not only because of my toddler but because of the environment as well. Seventh Generation products are environmentally friendly, and their new line of botanical disinfectant cleaners work like a charm! They contain thymol, a component of the herb thyme which smells really good.

So I set to work. I cleaned up the spills with the 100% recycled, unbleached paper towels and used the bathroom cleaner. The wipes smell especially good and made cleaning hard surfaces a breeze. My toddler even got in the action and "helped" wipe things up. I'm also enjoying reading through The Conscious Kitchen book that they sent, which discusses what’s good for your health, what’s good for the planet and what tastes great. Thanks to Seventh Generation, we were able to do a "naturally" good job cleaning up!

WANT TO WIN? One winner will receive a Seventh Generation "Disinfecting Cleaning Kit." It includes a disinfecting multi-surface cleaner, bathroom cleaner, wipes , a copy of The Conscious Kitchen, a cleaning caddy made from recycled plastic, and two rolls of 100% recycled, unbleached paper towels.
