It's almost official. Our house is about to be on the market. The realtor came over yesterday to measure and take pictures. She made a joke about needing to wear a face mask and for me to spray Lysol everywhere before she came over. I cringed at the thought of spraying Lysol, but then thought she did have a point about us needing to kill the lingering germs. Luckily, we were prepared for our illness and had tons of products to help us- if you haven't been able to tell from the theme of this week. We were just sent the new Seventh Generation products and I'm really excited to share them with you!
Seventh Generation just released their new line which includes Disinfecting Bathroom Cleaner, Disinfecting Multi-Surface Cleaner, and Disinfecting Wipes. These are the first ever EPA- registered disinfecting products that KILL germs NATURALLY! Seventh Generation teamed up with one of my favorite sanitizer company's, Clean Well, to create these amazing disinfectants. Clean Well discovered how to use thymol, a component of thyme oil, into a cleaning solution that kills 99.9% of household germs- including the flu and H1N1. They also have the lowest EPA toxicity rating available! These are amazing, safe, and effective cleaners that leave your house smelling great! I love the citrus scent. :)
My favorite of the 3 products is the Disinfecting Wipes. These were fantastic while cleaning Ella's toys!! She played with pretty much everything while she was sick, and the thought of spraying and wiping down every toy wasn't something I was looking forward to. But the wipes made the task so much easier! And I feel confident in letting her friends come over to play without catching whatever we had. These are great for the slack cleaner like me! To be even more eco-friendly, I have rinsed the wipes and reused them with the other cleaners. You can get 3-4 cleanings out of them!
I have loved using the spray disinfectants in our kitchen and bathrooms. They are designed to especially kill: Inﬂuenza A, H1N1, Staphylococcus aureus, Salmonella enterica, Pseudomonas aeruginosa and Escherichia coli. So if you drop raw kitchen on the counter, spray a little of the Multi-Surface Disinfectant and the counter is safe enough to eat off of. Both sprays are streak, smear and spot free. I hope they start using these in childcare centers instead of bleach. This is such a break through for disinfectants!!
You can find the disinfectant line online, at Whole Foods, at participating natural food stores, grocers, Babies R Us, Target and more! You can check availability online at Seventh Generation.
What I love about Seventh Generation is they don't hide what's in their products. They list every ingredient plus the Material Safety Data Sheets! Seventh Generation is dedicated in protecting your family and the environment from toxic chemicals. There is still time to join the Seventh Generation Million Baby Crawl in their fight against toxic chemicals in the household.
