Seventh Generation Giveaway – A Clean Kitchen Is A Happy Kitchen


There is nothing more scary to me than the use of chemicals within the home. It’s amazing if you look at your cleaning products and see what is actually in that little bottle of cleaner you use daily. When the mainstream push of green/organic cleaners came around I decided to make the switch. I love the idea of a cleaner that is made from natural products and natural scents.  Running a food blog it is important for my kitchen to remain clean. If you have ever watched “Kitchen Nightmares” you know how important a clean kitchen can be. I don’t need Gordon showing up at my door screaming “I ate here! Are you trying to kill me?”  Not that that would actually happen but it’s important to remember that a spotless kitchen is just as important in the home as it is in a public kitchen. Unfortunately residues from cleaning products can last on surfaces for longer than we’d like to know and travel to areas that we sometimes don’t intend them to. Don’t contaminate your food by prepping it on a surface that may contain harsh chemical residues. Also according to Women and Environment “chemicals in cleaning products have been linked to serious health problems like asthma and reproductive harm.” Why would you risk this in your house? I know I won’t! I’m going to make sure I keep a clean kitchen in the healthiest way possible. This is where the great the people at My Blog Spark and Seventh Generation step in. They offered to let me try their line of Natural Disinfectant cleaners and share my opinions with you, my loyal readers. Honestly, I loved the products. They had a nice natural smell and cleaned just as well as any other chemical laden product I have used in the past. Another thing I loved is that Seventh Generation products contain only natural ingredients and they voluntarily disclose all their ingredients where as other cleaning products are not even required to list the ingredients in their products. Seventh Generation is also EPA registered.

So do you want to know how you can get your hands on some of these great products? Well lucky you I’m doing a giveaway! The generous folks who run and Seventh Generation want you to start going green too 🙂 To enter the giveaway just do the following:

    We’ve been introducing more eco-friendly products into our household over the past year. In fact, I just started using the 7th Generation laundry detergent. It’s inexpensive (compared to the BIG name brands), and it really does the job as expected! A big change to our area is mandatory usage of bio-friendly trashbags…pricey, but if it helps our environment, then it’s well worth it!

    i have stopped using dryer sheets when i wash my clothes. instead, i add plain old white vinegar to my washing machine cycle. it eliminates the waxy build up that happens from chemical dryer sheets on my clothes. and for the most part, combats static too. (i had one delicate load of wool sweaters that came out with static, but it’s fine with jeans and t shirts)

    white vinegar also works well in automatic dishwashers as a replacement for “jet dry.”

    My family is working to go green. We are teaching the kids to turn off the water when brushing their teeth. They know what products go in the recycle bin. We also use cold water to wash the laundry (tide makes cold water laundry detergent). We use the special light bulbs and turn them off when not in the room (thats a hard one for the kids to remember). But we try 🙂

    I try very hard to watch what I buy by reading labels. Very informative. I also use cold water whenever possible, vinegar for lots of cleaning….

    We use a lot of vinegar to clean and use a lot of 7th Generation products. We also have a lot of house plants to help remove chemicals from our home.

    What a great giveaway. Even if I don’t win, I am glad you are doing this. I actually just recently purchased a bottle of their All Purpose cleaner for my home. They had a coupon for it out at the grocery store, so I figured why not? I am an avid Lysol disinfectant user(don’t like bacteria) but as I have done some research, I am convinced many of these things are not safe for my family. So while not making huge strides I am trying to make little changes here and there where/when I can.

    I try to use natural products like baking soda and vinegar in as much of my cleaning as possible. We also use the same spray bottles over and over to eliminate more waste.

    I have been switching over to as many natural products as possible. I use lemon and salt or vinegar to clean my wooden cutting board.

    My husband and I started composting all of our kitchen waste a year or so ago – its been great having all of that soil to use in our garden. We also use CFLs and reusable shopping bags and print double-sided whenever possible.

    We’re trying to be more ‘green’ by throwing out less trash and not letting our water run.
