This giveaway is now closed. Thanks for stopping by. The winner is Kate. Congrats!
Yes…it’s true. Our Spring Cleaning Event has ended. April Fools! I have a few more cleaning/organization posts for products that were added in at the last moment. So, on Rockin’ Mama we’ll have one more week of encore posts and giveaways before the big event that is coming up very soon (more deets to come soon!). Right now, there are giveaways open for entries and winners will be chosen by the weekend (I have to tally all of your extra credit entries and verify with Tanya and Amanda).
I couldn’t very well end this event without sharing with you one of my favorite companies that will help you get your entire home clean naturally. I have had the pleasure of working with Seventh Generation in the past, but even before we started working together, I was using their products. That is because, first and foremost, I identify with their philosophy:
Seventh Generation is committed to becoming the world’s most trusted brand of authentic, safe, and environmentally-responsible products for a healthy home. The company derives its name from the Great Law of the Iroquois that states, “In our every deliberation, we must consider the impact of our decisions on the next seven generations.”
One of the core characteristics of Seventh Generation is it’s transparency. The company is committed to helping consumers like you and I, make informed choices. If you have a question, you can expect to find the answer on the bottle or package, on their site, in their 7Gen News, or in their printed material. They don’t use words like “natural” or “hypoallergenic” without backing those statements with fact. They go so far as to list their Material Safety Data Sheets on their website. How is that for transparency?
Evey product that I’ve used from the company has been effective and safe for both my family and the environment. You may recall that I blogged about how I came across Seventh Generation when my son was suffering from horrible diaper rashes. Seventh Generation was my last resort before going to cloth diapers (which there is nothing wrong with but doesn’t fit with our lifestyle). Within about a week his diaper rashes were getting better and better until they just went away. But I’m not here to talk to you about diapers am I?
I had the pleasure of reviewing the company’s entire line of cleaning products in their Living Home Starter Kit including the following:
- Natural Glass and Surface cleaner
- Natural All Purpose Cleaner
- Toilet Bowl Cleaner
- Shower Cleaner
- Tub & Tile Cleaner
- Kitchen Cleaner
- (2) Natural Paper Towels – 120 Count
- Seventh Generation Reusable Tote Bag
The products are amazing. They’re safe and effective and I love that I can clean with my son in the same room. I love that I don’t have to sacrifice effectiveness for safety. I love that I don’t have to ventilate, wear a mask, don gloves, or otherwise suit up for a cleaning venture. The cleaning agents are plant-derived, non-toxic, and biodegradable. Many are also hypoallergenic. If you’re looking for a “natural clean,” I highly recommend Seventh Generation. I feel good about using products that were created by a company who strives to save natural resources, reduce pollution, and overall make the world (and our homes) a safer place. If you would like specific information on how any of the above products work, just leave me a comment and I’ll answer your questions! Maybe you want to know which is best for soap scum or mold or windows…I’d love to share my thoughts and experiences with you.
Win It! One of you very very lucky readers is going to win a Seventh Generation Living Home Starter Kit which includes each of the products listed above.

If you comment here that you’ve placed the button, it won’t count…this is for my sanity!). Here is the code since it’s not working from the other post:
