Cleaning the House with Seventh Generation

We have recently moved to a bigger house which has many perks but one huge downside too.  More space to play means more space to clean too.  Keeping the house clean has been even more challenging whilst we have been surrounded by boxes (and we still are in some rooms).  When we moved we cleared out the old cleaning cupboard, discarding products we never really used, no longer have a need for and the bottles that have probably been sat there since we moved in.  Seventh Generation sent us a hamper with some of their cleaning range to try out and I have been using them around the house since we moved in.


We had already switched to the Seventh Generation washing liquid which comes in completely recyclable cardboard packaging.  The bottle has 66 doses in and has no fragrances, dyes or optical brighteners.  It tackles the everyday mess that the children completely cover their clothes in and is hypoallergenic and not irritating to our skin.  Full of plant based power, we love the fact that this has a much smaller environmental impact that the washing liquid we were using and we are pretty converted.


I have been trying a few of the other products thanks to the hamper and I am really impressed with the streak free window cleaner.  We have big glass doors at the back of the new house which are a magnet for small sticky fingers it seems so this is definitely getting a lot of use! It is plant based and has no harsh fumes.


I have been looking for a biodegradable toilet cleaner too and we are really impressed with the Seventh Generation cleaner which has no harsh fumes and is scented with essential oils. It is easy to use and is a product we will continue to use.


All seventh generation products are not tested on animals, are derived from renewable plant based ingredients (which are completely disclosed on the packaging) and are designed with the next seven generations in mind and the world that they will inherit.  They are available to buy in select Tesco stores.

I have collaborated with Seventh Generation to offer a hamper of their cleaning products including three three mentioned above, their all purpose cleaning spray and their biobased natural wasing up liquid.  Entry is via the rafflecopter form below.

  81. does ironing count as cleaning. I find it sooo relazing

    ReplyDelete
  82. I am disabled so find all cleaning difficult. However, my faourite cleaning job is, believe it or not, cleaning the bathroom. The rest of my family seem to be oblivious to the state it can get in (except my eldest daughter who is away at uni most of the time). However, we have a relatively small bathroom and I can just about manage to clean it in one go and then every time I use it for a few days I can see that it has been cleaned. Anywhere else in our house and it seems just as bad as soon as it has been cleaned - the problem with having 4 children, 2 dogs and 8 cats I suppose!

    ReplyDelete
