Seventh Generation Review & GIVEAWAY





It's time to start Spring Cleaning. What does that mean? Well it means a LOT of harsh chemicals. You need one cleaner for windows, one for counters, one for dusting (pledge for instance), one for cleaning the carpet, one one one... There's about 8 different types of cleaners in my cabinet. Bathroom, windows, floors, carpet, multi surface. Yada Yada. When most people spring clean they do it with the windows open, but all those chemicals still get into our system and our lungs. Who knows what all those chemicals would do to us over the course of 10 years, 25 years or even 50 years. 

So that's where Seventh Generation comes in handy. Seventh Generation was kind enough to send a Free and Clear Home Starter Kit to us for Review. 



All but the Disinfecting products are free and clear so there's not harsh smells, dyes, or chemicals. She included the 3 disinfecting products because she said they were also all natural and she wanted to me try them. They smell so light and gentle I like the disinfecting ones!

I don't care for the smell of the Free and Clear cleaners. The detergent and softener have ABSOLUTELY no smell, but somehow the cleaners do and it's kind of stinky. But once you clean something it doesn't hold in the smell so it goes away in just a few minutes. Just a minor complaint! Other than that I absolutely love all these products.
So far I've used the Multi Surface cleaner for the counters, dishwasher, inside the fridge, and Avery's placemat. They've all cleaned up so nicely with this product.

Price: Each item is about $5-$8. The entire Free and Clear Kit like I received minus the Disinfecting products and paper towels is $30!! That's a good price for 6 cleaners and a reusable bag. WOW!

Overall: **** Very pleased. These are environmentally friendly. No harsh chemicals OR dyes and they are very cost effective. 

 *Disclaimer* I received these products directly from the Company for Review. I was not paid to try out these products!*

Interesting that running a fully loaded dishwasher uses less water than washing by hand. Never would have guessed!

I learned that if you fill a dishpan with water and only run the water to rinse dishes after you have washed all of them, then you can be more water and energy efficient than a dishwasher.

Kale is the vegetable most likely to be relegated to garnish status. That's too bad because this king of all superfoods is hyper-dense with antioxidants, anti-cancer phytochemicals, detoxifying compounds, vitamins, minerals, iron, protein, and fiber. Chop and mix it with chopped toasted almonds, dried cranberries, matchstick carrots, lots of olive oil, and a sprinkling of coarse-ground sea salt for a tasty salad.


sksweeps said...

I learned that Dishwashers vent about six liters of air into your home per minute during certain cycles, and the very hot water they use can turn as much as 100% of a detergent's chlorine into a vapor that's released as they work.


kmorghan said...

Seventh Generation compares their product's performance to the performance of the leading conventional brands and they make sure their products work as well, if not better, than those brands.


Meaghan F. said...

I learned front-loading washers use 36% less water, which is pretty amazing because we have one and I had no idea!

THE GIVE 10 PERCENT OF PROFITS BACK TO COMMUNITY


Ms. Autumn said...

The average water consumption of a conventional dishwasher is 6 gallons per cycle, while an energy efficient dishwasher uses 4 gallons per cycle. Assuming households are running their dishwasher 215 times a year, conventional dishwashers use 1,290 gallons of water and 368 kWh of electricity per year. Energy efficient dishwashers use 860 gallons of water and 294 kWh of electricity (assuming electric water heating). If your water is heated by gas instead of electricity, your impact is much lower: conventional dishwashers use 167 kWh of electricity and energy efficient models use 134 kWh of electricity with gas water heating. [Based on U.S. DOE calculations from all qualified models in December 2008].
