Review & Giveaway : Win a Seventh Generation Free & Clear Kit (10 products + Tote Bag!)



Seventh Generation produces some of my favorite "non-toxic" household cleaning items and I'm so thrilled to be sharing their products with you here on the blog today. Having been a long time fan of their laundry detergent, I contacted them about possibly featuring some of their products on the blog they very kindly set me the Free & Clear Starter Kit pictured above! I was wowed at the large selection of products they provided which included:
The Free & Clear line is notable for being free of added scents & dyes... and when Seventh Generation says scent free- they clearly mean it! The cleaning products I sampled left clothes and surfaces nice, clean and refreshed but also scent free. I have some sensitivity to scents (particularly strong ones like perfumes and fabric softeners), so I'm known to get a little bit sneezy at times. I didn't have this problem at all with the Seventh Generation products I sampled as everything removed unpleasant scents but didn't leave a strong "masking" scent behind. These products are wonderful not only for my scent sensitivities, but because they perform wonderfully as well!

In addition to the Free & Clear products the kit contained some lemongrass & thyme products. Megan from Seventh Generation says about these products: "[They have] Thymol scent (from Thyme oil). These are not considered free & clear, but they are great for immune-depressed households or those with small children, hence why I’ve included them here. The scent is essential oil – not synthetic - and dissipates quickly." I found this to be quite true as the lemongrass & thyme scents weren't at all irritating to my nose and seemed to have a slightly aromatherapeutic effect. The scents were very natural and herbal, without any lingering chemical or synthetic smells, basically, they smell like thyme!

I am having a wonderful experience using these products in my household. Having already been a fan of a few Seventh Generation products in the past, the new products I tested certainly lived up to my expectations. Seventh Generation does not test on animals and avoids certain ingredients found in conventional products, they also donate 10% of their profits to non-profit community, environmental, health, and responsible business organizations working for positive change. Seventh Generation also discloses all their ingredients online (please note that not all products may be vegan safe).
