Seventh Generation Spring Cleaning Review and Giveaway

Seventh Generation Spring Cleaning Kit

It's that time of the year. It's time for spring cleaning and time for college students to return home again. That means you maybe using harsh cleaning products to tidy up the house. However, thanks to Seventh Generation, there are nice cleaner options available. "Seventh Generation tapped into the disinfecting power of the common garden herb thyme, to provide a disinfecting cleaner that kills germs* naturally."


Thanks again to MyBlogSpark, I was able to receive a Seventh Generation “Disinfecting Cleaning Kit” (pictured above). I used this kit to clean the bathroom when I returned home from college (my mom doesn't really have the time to clean much and my dad can't).

Here is a before picture of our bathroom sink! Doesn't it look really gross?! Eek! That's why I knew I had to clean it!

Dirty Sink

Now, the sink after I used the cleaner and some paper towels.


Clean Bathroom

Wow! What a difference! The sink is cleaner and there's no harsh smell! I really like these Seventh Generation cleaners! They are really nice. The cleaning caddy is pretty handy, too! I also enjoyed the handy book included in the kit. It provided many simple and useful tips for the kitchen!
