Natural Kitchen Cleaning Products that are also Free & Clear

The one place that I am extra picky about cleanliness is the kitchen. This is the hub of my house where kids play, people gather, and of course where dinner is prepared. I want to know that my kitchen is clean and safe for everyone. I want to know that my counters are not clinging on to the harmful toxic chemicals leftover from cleaning products when my kids grab a snack on the counter. With Seventh Generation Natural cleaning products, I know my kitchen is clean and safe.

The Natural Multi-Surface Concentrated Cleaner ($4.99) is non-toxic, biodegradable, and hypoallergenic. This product doesn’t irritate my hands when I use it.  This is a good thing because I hardly ever use gloves when cleaning. It really does a nice job cleaning up the counters, stove top, and even the sink. This products is one of those products that can clean up messes on just about any surface. The solution is concentrated so you don’t need to use much.

The Free & Clear Natural Dish Liquid ($3.99) works great on even greasy dishes. I primarily use my dishwasher but for large items or super messy dishes, I have to hand wash. I liked that this product has no scent and was gentle on my hands. Some other products have left my hands feeling like I was washing in bleach. The natural Cornstarch-derived Water Softener actually softens hard water which is good for us with well water, it is safe for septic systems too.

The Automatic Dishwasher Detergent Pacs ($4.99) are convenient pre-measured pacs that you just pop in the dishwasher. They are Chlorine and Phosphate Free and the box is made up 100% recycle materials. I love the idea of these single use pacs, however my dishwasher is very old and it do not work well with this type of product. I’ve tried several other brands as well. However, I gave this to my mother-in-law to try and she said they work very well and deliver a spot free, clean load of dishes everytime.

Natural Laundry Detergent and Natural  Fabric Softener

Being a red-head, I have sensitive skin. My son also has very sensitive skin. We’ve even had issues with products labeled Free & Clear and develop rashes. I started by just washing 1 load of clothes with the Seventh Generation Free & Clear Natural 2X Concentrated Laundry Detergent ($6.99) and Natural  Fabric Softener ($5.99). When there was no reaction, I continued.

We’ve use these products for 3 weeks now and love it. It is absolutely free of any dyes or fragrances, hypoallergenic, biodegradable, and free of phosphates & optical brighteners. The bottles look rather small at 32 and 40 oz, however I’ve been using these products for 3 weeks and still have about 1/2 of the product left. I also like that it is for both HE and Standard washers.

I also have had good success with the Natural Fabric Softener Sheets ($4.99) which also contain no scent with the Free & Clear product. Not only do the sheet provide a static free and softened clothes but after use, the sheets are recyclable or compostable. Remember, if you do enjoy a scent, Seventh Generation does provide products that are not Free & Clear as well.

Natural Bathroom Cleaners

The second most important room that I want to ensure is clean is my bathroom.  If you are a mom, you know that bathrooms are not just for cleaning up but to kids, bathrooms is another playroom when it comes to bathtime!

The Natural Disinfecting Bathroom Cleaner ($6.99) naturally kills over 99.99% of household germs, including Influenza A, H1N1, Staphylococcus aureus, Salmonella enterica, Pseudomonas aeruginosa and Escherichia coli on hard, nonporous surfaces. It has a mild, earthy scent of Lemongrass & Thyme which is like a breath of fresh air in the bathroom compared to harsh chemical smells normally associated with a clean bathroom. The  Disinfecting Wipes ($5.75) also kill 99.99% of household germs in an easy, convenient form. I like to use these daily just to touch up the bathroom, especially the toilet flush handle.

Seventh Generation has natural cleaning products for the entire home

The following products are great for the entire house.

The Free & Clear Natural Glass & Surface Cleaner ($4.99) really impressed me. I normally like only Windex for cleaning my glass surfaces but this product really delivers a streak-free shine. The Plant-derived Cleaning Agent gives great results without harmful smelling fumes.

The Natural All Purpose Cleaner ($4.99) is worth stocking up on as it can be used practically everywhere inside and outside the home.  It delivers a clean surface without fumes. The products is non-toxic,  biodegradable, and hypo-allergenic.

Also stock up on the 100% Recycled Paper Towels ($2.29) that are made of 100% recycled paper which saves a ton of trees from being cut down. These paper towels work well for cleaning and wiping up spills.
