Giveaway: Seventh Generation Disinfecting Kit – CLOSED

by Marcy on April 7, 2010 · 251 comments

Recently I was given the opportunity to review a variety of cleaning products from Seventh Generation. As a parent of a young child (and a soon to be newborn) I have an interest in reducing the amount of chemicals that I expose them to in our home. One thing I will say about all of the natural cleaners that I have tried in the past is that I am never sure how much they are actually disinfecting. That’s why I was exited to learn that Seventh Generation recently introduced a new line of EPA registered products that kill germs naturally.

The new line of botanical disinfectant cleaners includes a multi-surface cleaning spray, a bathroom cleaning spray and wipes. These products contain thymol, a component of the herb thyme, and can be used on hard surfaces including counter tops, plastic cutting boards, highchair trays as well as children’s toys. Best of all, they kill over 99.99% of germs naturally, and are effective against the Influenza A Virus, including H1N1.

I have used the wipes and multi-surface cleaner so far and I absolutely love them! (And I hate to clean, just for the record!) I like that they have a pleasant scent, and they clean really well. Of all of the cleaning products I have tested (both natural and not), I feel that these encompass the qualities that I like in both conventional and natural cleaning products. I feel as though I am killing germs without wiping harmful chemicals all over my house. This was also my first time using recycled, unbleached paper towels and I have been pleasantly surprised with those as well.

(Be sure to check out information about a current $5 rebate offer on Seventh Generation products, and how you can score a great deal on them at Target in my post here.)

With spring cleaning right around the corner, I am excited to announce that I have 1 Seventh Generation Disinfecting Cleaning Kit to share with one of you!

What am I giving away?

1 reader will win a Disinfecting Cleaning Kit that includes Seventh Generation’s Disinfecting Multi-Surface Cleaner, Bathroom Cleaner, Wipes , a copy of The Conscious Kitchen, a cleaning caddy made from recycled plastic, and two rolls of Seventh Generation 100% recycled, unbleached paper towels.

I don’t allow non-green cleaners in my house. And not greenwashed “green” stuff, I mean the real kind. And Seventh Generation also happens to make the only green dishwasher detergent that actually – gasp! – cleans the dishes.

I wish I had the money to be able to afford more green products. I have bought them a few times.

8 megan April 7, 2010 at 11:31 AM

I started buying a lot more ‘green-cleaners’ and they seem to be wonderful, but would love the chance to try some other brands such as this!

9 Jackie Bentley April 7, 2010 at 11:32 AM

I am using a lot more vinegar and baking soda to clean with.

10 C.S.R. April 7, 2010 at 11:34 AM

a cheap alternative way to do things is to use baking soda and vinegar if you can’t afford to buy products like Seventh Generation all the time.

i have been trying to purchase more “green” products however they are still a little pricey! I follow your page every day and watch for deals to replace the products i currently have. as a mom of 3 small children i too have concerns about the products that we have in our home and am doing what i can to replace them when i can! thank you so much for all you do!!

15 Alex April 7, 2010 at 11:38 AM

We use vinegar, baking soda, and lemon juice to do most of our cleaning in order to reduce the amount of chemical cleaners in our home. But I would love to try Seventh Generation replacements for those few pesky chemical cleaners that I’ve still had to keep around.

16 Blessed Mom April 7, 2010 at 11:40 AM

I’m so glad to hear that you like Seventh Generation products. I’ve tried other green cleaners, but I’m always afraid that I’m not really getting things clean. I have two small children and one on the way and really want to eliminate as many chemicals from the house as possible. I’ve used vinegar a bit, but have never really committed to using it full time.

Well, first of all, I subscribed to your blog!
Secondly, I use a lot of vinegar and baking soda. I also use hot water with tea to clean my hardwood floors, I also make my own laundry detergent and add a few drops of essential oils to make it smell extra nice.
I do use store-bought fabric softner, but put it in a bucket and add a bottle of water and use reuseable sponges soaked in mixture as a dryer sheet.
I am slowly going “green”….

26 Jessica April 7, 2010 at 11:50 AM

I have pretty severe allergies, so all chemicals are bothersome. Even the smell of bleach has me reaching for my inhaler. I have 3 dogs that love to make messes of the house, so I always need a good disinfecting cleaner that won’t affect my lungs or skin. I like seventh generation and am interested in this disinfecting line…

I recently began looking into what companies are taking steps into protecting the environment and not exploiting their workers. Seventh Generation is one of those companies! The step I’m trying to take is support and use brands that take of the enviroment and their workers.

I have definitely tried to reduce the chemicals in our house since my son was born a year ago. The biggest change I made was trying to make my own cleaners whenever I can. But I also like the convenience of the cloths and spray cleaners, so I try to by natural ones.

50 Kenzi Harris April 7, 2010 at 12:35 PM

I am a big believer in using products that are good for you and as good as possible for our planet ( which is also good for us). I have made my own laundry detergent (a fun endeavor) and use things like vinegar and baking soda for cleaning many things. If you break the mindset of “needing chemicals to get it really clean” you discover that they really aren’t needed and you’re much better off. I also reuse and recycle everything possible and either use my canvas bags when shopping, or simply ask them to skip the bag.

62 Allison April 7, 2010 at 1:10 PM

I got 4 free bottles of the 7th Gen disinfecting cleaner and 5 free bottles of 7th Gen dish soap using my Recyclebank points-awesome coupons! I am still using up the last bit of Lysol so I haven’t tried them yet. I’m not particularly worried about going green, I’m more worried about not going into the red! So I get whatever products I can for free or super cheap. I did notice on the Disinfecting Multi-Surface Cleaner, the directions state that for disinfecting, to spray it on the surface, leave for 10 minutes, and allow to air dry. Did you do that? I have potty-training accidents and such on the floor…having to let it set and air-dry sounds a little inconvenient, to be honest.

Other than that I use baking soda, vinegar, lemon juice, salt, etc…

And I have eliminated bleach!

75 Emily April 7, 2010 at 1:21 PM

I haven’t really tried to reduce the use of chemical cleaners in my home, mainly because of the expense of “natural” cleaners. I am definitely going to try Seventh Generation products with the rebate deal and Target coupon, but it would also be great to win some! Thanks for the giveaway and the chance to win.

We also make our own cleaner using water and vinegar. It does the trick and I know it’s safe for our kids to touch and breath! Thanks for helping to spread the word!

We have always been careful to avoid chemicals in our household (the natural result of being raised by former hippies as parents!). We have experimented with the disposable & chemical-filled cleaning products and find that they just don’t measure up to the all-natural options (and those that do just aren’t worth the added who-knows-what in chemicals in our home). We use a lot of the natural cleaners described in the above comments.

we’ve done away with all chemical cleaning products in our household for the last couple of years. we’ve been simply using these items to clean almost everything in our home: water, vinegar, baking soda and hydrogen peroxide.

We have been using “safe” cleaning products like seventh generation. I haven’t tried their bathroom cleaner yet so I am looking forward to trying it. I can’t seem to find one that is safe and works well. I’ve also been making my own laundry soap.

I have been replacing my cleaners with green cleaners. I also use a vinegar and water solution to clean the stains left on my carpets by my toddler.

It’s gotten easier for me to change to nontoxic, green, natural products with the number of kids increasing in our home!

I do not clean as much as I should–I do know that! But I do enjoy using healthier cleaners like baking soda, vinegar and lemon juice which are all cheap and non toxic! I also switched over to a natural cat litter (Feline Pine Scoop) about a year ago because I hated the toxic cloud in the air after I poured the Fresh Step into the litter box. But the natural litters do pose a tracking problem with all our carpet, so I am looking for one that does not cling to my cat’s paws as much currently.

I generally use baking soda and vinegar for cleaning, and “green” brands such as Seventh Generation for other stuff (laundry detergent, etc.). Thanks for the chance to win!
