It's no secret that I like Seventh Generation products. I've tried their dish detergent, toilet bowl cleaners, bathroom and multi surface cleaners, baby wipes and diapers, and even their laundry detergent. I like them because they list their ingredients, use less toxic chemicals, and they really work.
So when My Blog Spark asked me to take a look at their laundry detergents, I gladly accepted. They asked me to take a look that their detergent versus my "usual" detergent to show that Seventh Generation does not use optical brighteners in their detergent.
So what's the big deal? I'm not really sure but optical brighteners are just one extra chemical (toxic or not?) that I'd rather not put into my clothing, my body, or our environment.
Take a look at these "black light" results. It's clear that Seventh Generation doesn't use optical brighteners, and as I've said before, they are one of the few companies that actually lists the ingredients in their cleaners.
But of course, the fun doesn't stop there. Seventh Generation and My Blog Spark would like to give you the opportunity to try their "Optical Brightener Discovery Kit" for yourself. You will receive 1 bottle of Seventh Generation detergent, 1 bottle of Seventh Generation liquid fabric softener, 2 organic cotton t-shirts, 1 box of fabric softener sheets, and a black light.
