GIVEAWAY!! {Seventh Generation}

YAY!! it's a review...and a giveaway. of some GREAT products from Seventh Generation...

a few weeks ago i contacted them to see if i could review some products. they're SO willing to do so. i picked the Free & Clear Starter Kit from them to review, it included these products::
Disinfecting Multi-Surface
Disinfecting Bathroom
Disinfecting Wipes - 35 ct.
Please note: The Disinfectants have Thymol sent (from Thyme oil). These are NOT considered free & clear, but they are great for immune-depressed households or those with small children, hence why I’ve included them here. The scent dissipates quickly. ((this is very true, and it's a good smell.))
Laundry Detergent – F&C 32 oz
Liquid Fabric Softener – F&C 40 oz
Dish liquid
All- Purpose Cleaner
Auto-Dish Pacs
Glass Cleaner
Natural Paper Towels
Seventh Gen Recycled Bag

the box all the stuff came in was over flowing with prodcuts. FULL sized products. i LOVED that! of course i had to use the stuff right away.

i'll admit the natural paper towels seemed...well thin and 'cheap'. but because i had to review them, i went with it...and am glad i did. even though they're a 'thinner' paper towel, they hold up SO well and work great. i was for sure surprised by that. in fact we went through the roll pretty fast and i bought some at a local store. i'm going to have to do some price checking though to see if i can get it cheaper someplace else. because it was like 2 bucks for one roll...and when you have kids...they spill...and you use a lot of paper toweling then. :0)

i absolutely loved the auto-dish packs. it cleaned our dishes great. and we weren't left with the yucky food particles that can sometimes be left on dishes. ((i'm lazy and hardly ever rinse the dishes before we put them in...seriously though..that's the POINT of the dishwasher, why should i wash before i put them in?))

on a side note, something i didn't get as part of the review, but have because i LOVE it. is the seventh generation rinse aid. NO water spots. love it. ((just so you know. lol))

the laundry detergent and softener worked great too. and i'm going to have to search out where i can buy more, because it's almost gone. i love using liquid softener because i'm pretty bad at remembering to through in a dryer sheet. so it's nice to have some liquid to use. the detergent is also formulated for an HE machine, which i think most brands now a days are...but just so you know.

the disinfecting items also worked great. and the smell of the products was nice. and not all chemically smelly. when i'm pregnant i can not stand most smells of cleaning products. they give me headaches and it's awful. so it's so nice to have products without all the yucky chemicals. and made naturally. and that actually CLEAN the stuff you want to clean.

i liked the 'regular' dish washing liquid too. i soaked something that couldn't be put in the dishwasher, with hot water and a bit of the liquid. and it all washed off great. i like not having to scrub and scrub and caked on gunk.

overall, i'm super happy with all the seventh generation products i've used. plus it's nice to know that the products don't contain harmful chemicals and yuck. i can actually clean without getting a headache. ((i haven't decided if that's good or bad...because shaun used to do it when i was pregnant and couldn't handle it. lol))

so i'm sure you want some to try now don't you?!? i'm sure. i also forgot to mention that it comes with the re-useable bag. ((except if you're like me, you have them in your van, but they never make it in the store with you. lol))

so here's what you get! the same products i did part of the Free and Clear Starter Kit::
Disinfecting Multi-Surface
Disinfecting Bathroom
Disinfecting Wipes - 35 ct.
Laundry Detergent – F&C 32 oz
Liquid Fabric Softener – F&C 40 oz
Dish liquid
All- Purpose Cleaner
Auto-Dish Pacs
Glass Cleaner
Natural Paper Towels
Seventh Gen Recycled Bag

You might be interested in cloth 'paper' towels (aka table towels) if you go thru a lot of them. We have them and I love them. Never have to buy paper towels!
