I have to admit that Spring is the time that my house gets its best cleaning. (Hey, I have four kids so cut me some slack!)
This year Seventh Generation got me motivated me with a free sample kit - by way of My Blog Spark's wonderful people - containing their enviromentally friendly Lemongrass and Thyme scented cleaning products; including the Multi-Surface Cleaner, Bathroom Cleaning, and Disinfecting Wipes. Plus I also received their 100% Recycled Paper Towels.
This is where my second confession comes in....
Only recently have I started making efforts to "Go Green." While I don't believe in Global Warming, I do believe that we should be kinder to our World and eliminate as much waste as possible.
So what better way to add to my efforts that also going green with my spring cleaning?
Not only did I find products that are naturally safe, but they clean JUST AS WELL AS the harsh chemical-based ones.
The disinfectants contain thymol, a component of the herb thyme, and can be used on hard surfaces including counter tops, plastic cutting boards, highchair trays as well as children´s toys. Best of all, they kill over 99.99 percent of germs naturally and are effective against the Influenza A Virus, including H1N1. Okay, so you're sold on the "green" aspect, right? But what about the price, you ask.
That's the best part...Seventh Generation products are competitive in price to other cleaning supplies. And you can always find a variety of money-saving coupons at the Seventh Generation website!
