Eco-Friendly Cleaning with Seventh Generation | Review & Giveaway ♥

*This is a collaborative post.

I'm going to be totally honest here, there's always a form of cleaning going on in our house at any given time. 

Whether it be the washing machine going with another load of dirty clothes (I swear the washing basket just breeds when I'm not looking at it), cleaning the food splattered tiles in the kitchen from where the baby has thrown his dinner on the floor, to disinfecting the floors so the boys can play in a clean and safe environment, cleaning seems to be the theme of our house and as it's something always having to be done, I look for products that not only work great, but are safe for me to use on a daily basis too.

When our Seventh Generation hamper arrived there was genuine excitement from my other half and the four year old - who was delighted at the prospect of having a new laundry detergent to use... I'm not even joking.

I have to admit, I was pleased to see the products too, after all, when you're using cleaning products day in and day out it's quite, dare I say exciting, to be able to try out new ones. Anyone else get like that?!

Seventh Generation is an eco-friendly brand and that is a big plus for me. Being a family of outdoor lovers we always try and do our bit for the environment and using eco-friendly products is always something I strive to do.

Seventh Generation have spent years making their products more environmentally friendly by using plant-based ingredients, biodegradable formulas and avoiding dyes, artificial brighteners and synthetic fragrances. The product packaging is also made from 100% recycled materials too. Another big positive for the brand is that they do not test on animals.

Our hamper included:

Seventh Generation Natural Laundry Detergent with Lavender and Blue Eucalyptus
Seventh Generation Free and Clear Concentrated Natural Laundry Detergent for Sensitive Skin
Seventh Generation Glass and Surface Natural Cleaner
Seventh Generation Toilet Bowl Natural Cleaner
Seventh Generation Natural Dish Liquid
Seventh Generation All-Purpose Natural Cleaner

I also have a hamper containing all of these products up for grabs for one lucky winner, so make sure to enter the giveaway below.

I've since used all the products and I can safely say that they work just as well as any other brand I have used, only with Seventh Generation I feel like I'm cleaning my home and our clothes much more wholesomely and safely and it's nice to have those feelings attached to products I'm using everyday.

My favourite product from the range is the Natural Laundry Detergent with Lavender and Blue Eucalyptus. This helps to fight stains really well and the sent is just gorgeous. Hanging out the washing on the line on a warm summers day really helped to bring this scent out in the clothes and it is just divine.

The Seventh Generation Glass and Surface Natural Cleaner also leaves my windows gleaming after use, I was really impressed with it. There's no nasty chemical smells off the products and they work really well in keeping our house spick and span.

Our home and clothes are now gleaming clean thanks to Seventh Generation and I love that all of these products are not only safe for the environment, but also good for us as a family too.

The Seventh Generation range is now available to purchase in Tesco stores across the UK - I'm hoping they'll be available in Ireland very soon too.

To be in with a chance of winning your very own hamper of Seventh Generation cleaning products, simply enter via the Gleam widget below. The giveaway is open to residents of the UK only and will end on August 31st. A winner will then be picked at random via the Gleam widget. The prize is being supplied by Seventh Generation directly.

  2. The tip that works for me is to set the alarm 5-10 mins early during the week, so as to do a bit of housework before going to work. It energises me for the day ahead and prevents the chores building up for the much needed for pleasure - weekend and evenings

  22. I think Baking soda, white vinegar and lemon are my top 3 best friends. Lemon juice in hot water revives your whites. baking soda, vinegar, foil and hot water cleans your silverware. Vinegar cleans mirrors and windows. Vinegar and baking soda makes a good descaler, just boil in the kettle and when you're done either use it to clean the toilet or kill the weeds.
