Seventh Generation Giveaway

As a family of five consisting of three children and two rather messy adults, it’s safe to say that our house needs cleaning. A lot. Grubby hands,never ending laundry baskets, sticky fingerprints on the windows and dirty plates piled high by the sink are a daily occurance so when the lovely folk at Seventh Generation offered to send me a hamper full of cleaning goodies, I’m not going to lie I was over the moon.

The big selling point of Seventh Generation is their ethos. Did you know that retailers by law don’t have t disclose what is in cleaning products? Seventh Generation are an American based company who use all natural products meaning that their products are plant based, so are super gentle on the skin. This  is music to my ears as my girls both have quite sensitive skin that can flare up unexpectedly, so I was really excited to test out their range of products which are available to buy in Tesco.

Seventh Generation

We refurbished our bathroom at the end of March and replaced everything. It is still my absolute pride and joy but I struggle to find cleaners that are gentle enough for the marble. I tried out the all purpose cleaner as it doesn’t contain bleach. I tested a small area just underneath the bath as recommended and I am thrilled to say there was no corrosion so I have finally found a spray to help me clean the bathroom and make sure it remains spotless.

seventh generationI was drawn to the natural laundry detergent which comes in a cardboard outer packaging. If you know me, or ever speak to my husband he can vouch for what a recycling fiend I am so it pleases me greatly that I can also recycle the packaging after use. The laundry detergent is designed for sensitive skin; despite this I am always sceptical when trying new washing detergents due to the girls skin but I am pleased to report after putting it through its paces for over a week, there have been no changes to their skin so I will be continuing to use it. It is also fragrance, dye and artificial brightener free. All of the ingredients are listed on the back of all the products so you know just what you are using in and around the home. We are lucky that we don’t have any respiratory illnesses but it’s reassuring to know that I’m not spraying any harsh chemicals around the house that my children are breathing in.

    Use washing powder as a general cleaner. It really cuts through dirt, grime and grease, very good on shower trays, baths and sinks…put some down the loo and watch the stains disappear, no need for other high priced cleaners.

    It’s one I learnt early….always put your small washing items like socks in a net bag to keep them all together so it’s easier to find them all and put them back together after taking them out of the machine.
