Seventh Generation Disinfecting Cleaning Kit Giveaway!

{Congratulations to #268} Using Greener and more Organic products has become a major mission for me. I'm not perfect, but I am making progress. I've posted a few times about how I clean my home without many chemicals.

For the most part, I use just water. But not in my dishwasher, washing machine, or for cleaning bathrooms. In all of those areas, I'm sticking with my conventional products until they run out. Then it's green-up time.

As luck would have it, I got an email asking if I wanted to review Seventh Generation's line of green cleaners just as I ran out of bathroom cleaner!

Wahoo! Talk about awesome timing! Take a look at the picture below to see what they sent me (and what you can win!)

The Seventh Generation “Disinfecting Cleaning Kit” includes a disinfecting multi-surface cleaner, bathroom cleaner, wipes , a copy of The Conscious Kitchen, a cleaning caddy made from recycled plastic, and two rolls of 100% recycled, unbleached paper towels.


I also took a coupon from the Sunday paper and bought Seventh Generation's toilet bowl cleaner for less than the cost of any other brand (after coupon.) It's so much easier to explain my green ambitions to my husband when the price is comparable or even beats the conventional brands. Thank you for sending out coupons, Seventh Generation!

When I received these products, the first thing I did was read all the ingredients. I had read about them before (in my planning for future purchases) and liked what I saw. The ingredients are made form botanically pure plant extracts. The disinfecting power actually comes from the herb, Thyme. Love that stuff. :) According to Seventh Generation, it kills 99.9% of germs and naturally protects against viruses like Influenza A and H1N1.

So what was it like to use? Almost exactly like all other cleaners I have ever used. I used it on the toilets; the toilets sparkled. I used it on the sink;the sink was beautiful. I washed the door knobs and light switches; they came clean with no leftover residue.

I said "almost exactly" because the smell was very different. I could tell by the smell that it was a "cleaner" but it didn't have the burn your eyes and sinuses kind of smell that most cleaners have. I wouldn't say that I'd like to sit around smelling it, but it wasn't overpowering and it didn't smell bad. It smelled like a mild cleaner. But it worked just as well as the intense smelling conventional cleaners.

I liked it. And I was glad to be using something that would be less harmful to our environment. And as if the Universe needs a hint, I'm down to one bottle of laundry detergent. lol

If you'd like to win the Seventh Generation Disinfecting Kit seen above, you're in luck! Seventh Generation and My Blog Spark have generously offered to send one out to a Suburban Jungle Reader.

  62. Tip #1 -- use as little chemicals as you can when cleaning --- I mostly use water to clean. For example, wiping the bathroom counters, mirrors, etc... Some areas you clean there is no choice --- like the toilet and shower. However, use only what is necessary to keep your home free of chemicals and when you buy cleaning products buy safer ones such as the seventh generation products:)

    ReplyDelete
  63. Tip #2 --- don't use windex (or other harsh chemicals) on mirrors in your home. There are great cloths out there to purchase that you can use water and only that cloth to get a streak free clean mirror. Look at the grocery store next time :)

  173. One of my Favourite Green cleaning tips is to use vinegar and a little bit of water to clean the mirrors and windows in the house! Just as good as Windex and not as harmful to the environment! :)

  176. I loved finding this: it's more efficient to wash dishes in an energy star dishwasher than to wash dishes by hand (I hate hand washing dishes) :)

  179. I learned that if every household in the US replaced just one roll of virgin fiber paper towels with their recycled ones that we could save 1,000,000 trees. Thanks for the opportunity. I love seventh generation but can't always afford it. bowtiesnbutterflies@live.com

  180. I learned that there ARE companies out there who care about the planet and my child's future!! I didn't realize 7th Gen had been around for 20 years. I have just recently began using a few of their products as I am trying to make the switch to green cleaning products as well! Thanks for the giveaway!

  185. My best green cleaning tip is baking soda! I use it a lot in the kitchen and bath. Just sprinkle and scrub with a sponge (or microfiber cloth), then rinse with water. I use a little lemon juice with it sometimes for a lemony fresh smell.

Figuring out What's Wrong with Your Berry Plants by Leaf Analysis

I've been growing berries all my life. First raspberries and over the last 9 years blueberries and strawberries. Over that time, I have encountered an endless stream of problems and have figured out how to fix many of them. So I thought I'd put that knowledge online so people can easily figure out what might be going on with their berry plants and have a place to start to search for information. Most plants give signs of trouble with their leaves. In general, most plants (and especially berries) should have deep green leaves. Any other variation means trouble. Sometimes it's major. Sometimes it's an easy fix. Raspberries If your leaves have a purple tinge: It may mean the weather has been cold, they are just forming, or they are deficient in Potassium . To fix - apply light fertilizer (tomato fertilizer is a good choice, since it is higher in potassium which results in more flowers and more fruit - or buy Organic potassium source .) If your leaves are yellowing

Are Siberian Cats Hypoallergenic? The Truth about Siberian Cats!

Our Siberian kitten at 12 weeks old I thought we would never own a cat. My husband is allergic. And my son is allergic. So we put pet ownership out of our heads until some how we came across the Siberian cat breed. My husband spent all sorts of time researching Fel-D1 levels and everything he could about cats and allergies. He was convinced we could do it. So we began our search. First of all, you should know that there aren't very many Siberian cat breeders. At least on in our area. We called and emailed a few but they all had super long waiting lists and were hours away from our home. Then we found two that were close to home. They also had long waiting lists, but were close enough that we could go visit. We visited two separate breeders. We found them both to be very loving homes filled with cats. Soft, lovey, playful cats. But my both my husband and son had severe reactions after visiting the homes. Click here to see results of our first breeder visit . Even sti

9 Months Wearing Thinx - What I REALLY think and What you should know if you decide to use them!!

It's been 9 months since I bought my first pair of Thinx underwear. Since that time, I have transitioned to 90% reusable period products . I've figured out how to wash them, get them to stop being stinky , and when to use them.  I first heard of Thinx when a friend of mine showed me an article on Facebook.The article was an obvious paid to endorsement. I was disappointed that my friend couldn't see through the propaganda, but it did motivate me to dig deeper into reusable menstrual products. So I bought my first pair - I used a $10 off coupon and first time customers got free shipping. ( This link will give you $10 off if you decide to give them a go.) The first thing I did when they arrived was try them on. They fit well and looked really good. Fancy even? Well, maybe not for most people but they had lace and that is fancy in my world. I then tested them with a syringe of water to be sure that they could actually hold the liquid they claimed. They passed. I bo

How to Make Raw Almond Butter using a Blender (Vitamix)

You CAN make your own almond butter (peanut, cashew, sunflower, or ANY nut butter.) It's fast and easy - and you can do it in a blender! If you love almond butter, then I'd highly recommend learning how to make it yourself. I buy raw almonds   for about $3 a pound, so the savings aren't  huge , but knowing what goes into my almond butter is priceless.  What goes in? Nothing but almonds . You can certainly add salt, cocoa powder, sugar, honey, or whatever floats your boat - but the truth is - you don't have to!  You can roast the almonds and have a rich nutty flavored almond butter or you can make it raw (which to me - tastes more like cookie dough mixed with peanut butter, yums.) Here's the deal: you don't need to add oils or anything else. A vitamix blender (or other similarly powerful blender) can handle it.   Here's a video of me making raw almond butter. I used about 3 cups (measured by a 5 year old - so about  3 cups is fine). 

Can you fix broken plants with tape? - yes you can!

Can you fix broken plants with tape? YESSSSSS! Read on to hear how I have done it many times and how you can fix your plants too. A snapped Blueberry plant repaired with electrical tape and twine I take care of a lot of plants. And when I run out of plants, I take care of my neighbors' . Every once-in-a-while, I learn something that's worth sharing. This is one of those things. I found out that you CAN save plants by using tape. This winter, someone stepped on the main stem of one of my blueberry bushes and snapped it in half. I noticed it as soon as the snow melted and was devastated. It takes 3 years for a blueberry bush to "be ready" and it was year three. And the main stem was snapped clean off. So I did what anybody would do in an emergency like this. I hit the garage for whatever tape I could find. My husband had recently taught me that electrical tape sticks to nothing - but itself. And it sticks to itself well. I grabbed the electrical tape  from t
