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.
