(Pardon my photographing skills, they're not the best!)
Hubby was very excited to try the cleaners, we've been trying to find something free of chemicals that actually works. Well, he was very pleasantly surprised! I can't believe I'm about to post these, but here we go. Hubby made dinner and voluteered to clean up since I hate cleaning up after him (he's the sloppiest chef I've ever seen, honestly)
(Seventh Generation Multi-Surface Cleaner)
(Seventh Generation Natural Paper Towels)
As you can see, it did an amazing job! We like the smell too, it's made with Thymol (a component of thyme oil) so it smells nice and clean, no strong nasty chemical smells that make you choke. It's made to kill over 99.99% of household germs, which I think is amazing since we've had a bout of colds passing through lately. It kills Inﬂuenza A, H1N1, Staphylococcus aureus, Salmonella enterica, Pseudomonas aeruginosa and Escherichia coli when sprayed onto hard, non-porous surfaces. Pretty awesome, especially because it's done naturally! No bleach, no burning nose. We could clean with the kids sitting up at the breakfast bar and not worry about them inhaling the who-knows-what that's in chemically based cleaners. The paper towels are pretty amazing too, for us they do a better job than the ones we normally get. They're lasting a LOT longer than the other brands do because they don't fall apart.
We loved all the products we were sent, they all work amazingly well. I doubt you all have the patience to read through lengthy reviews on all of them, but they're all great. I do want to talk about the diapers and wipes, however. Now, I hadn't tried the Seventh Generation diapers simply because they're not easily accessible out here in BFE ;) They're available at Babies R Us, but that's at least a 45 minute trip and we don't make it very often. Since we normally use cloth anyway, I never really gave it much thought and would just grab a package of diapers as needed. (We typically use disposables at night, and I have a hard enough time getting those on him sometimes, haha.)
(Don't mind the deer in the headlights look..he does that because of the red-eye light)
The first thing I noticed about the Seventh Generation diapers was the lack of smell. You know, that diaper smell that hits you when you first open the package or walk down the diaper aisle at the store? Yeah, no smell! Which I think is pretty awesome, because what do you think MAKES that smell? Yeah, chemicals, ick. The second thing is the awesome unbleached brown of the diaper. Sometimes Tiny Man has redness after wearing disposables so I'm not a huge fan of them. He doesn't get a rash, but his little bum looks a bit red for my liking. There was no redness with these! I was surprised, to be honest! And I wasn't sure how well they would hold up to his, you know, explosiveness that comes from time to time. It didn't take long at all to find out! Just a few minutes after putting the first diaper on. And it HELD UP! There were NO leaks. I thought for sure there would be when I got ready to change him, boy was I pleasantly surprised! And the wipes? Yeah, I'm a wipe snob. I only really like the Huggies ones. I figured these wouldn't be comparable (since I've yet to find anything comparable). I was wrong! They aren't super thick, but they do the job just as well. Add to that, they're also chlorine free (like the diapers) so they're much better for his little behind!
