My Family’s Fall Clean-Up with Seventh Generation Disinfecting Cleaners – #Review and #Giveaway~ CAN 11/23

| October 30, 2014 | 66 Comments

Now that autumn is in full swing, this signals the start of my family’s Big Fall Clean-Up around my home. We do a huge cleaning inside and outside of our home. This year, we can even enlist our younger kids to help us get all of our chores on our Fall Clean-Up To-Do List as they are both big enough to walk and pick up things they were not able to last year. This was also the perfect time for my family to test out the new Seventh Generation Disinfecting Cleaners around our home!

My family received three products within the Seventh Generation Disinfecting Cleaners team to review. They are:

• Disinfecting Multi-Surface Cleaner
• Disinfecting Bathroom Cleaner
• Disinfecting Wipes


This line of cleaners is great for what we needed to do around our home. They would help us clean up our home quickly as we do not have to go over the area we just cleaned by wiping the spot we just cleaned with water to remove the cleaner. This is because the cleaners are made from botanically pure extracts, so they are not harmful if they get on the skin. The CleanWell Inside™, a patented technology used in these products, kills 99.99 % of germs on hard, non-porous surfaces.  They also fight viruses and bacteria such as Influenza A (the common flu), salmonella choleraesuis, staphylococcus aureus and escherichia (E) coli.

The Disinfecting Multi-Surface Cleaner was great to clean up our kitchen and windows! When it came out of the spray nozzle, it was bubbly, but not overly foamy. It got right to work on the grease and grime that was left from our breakfast that morning, and it also left a streak-fee shine to our windows. We also used this cleaner on our other non-porous surfaces such as the faucet at our kitchen sink to disinfect it during our cleaning spree.

The Disinfecting Bathroom Cleaner is great to use in the bathroom. It was especially great to use if you are short on time and you are expecting company soon like I was that day. I was able to clean up my sink, toilet and tub quickly, and it was great knowing that everything I cleaned was disinfected as well, so I did not have to go over everything again. I was able to tidy up in our bathroom and then gussy myself up a bit before the doorbell rang! Since these cleaners also have a clean lemongrass citrus scent to them, I did not smell like cleaning supplies.

The Disinfecting Wipes are great to use all around the house for a quick cleaning of little messes. I use them after baking with my kids on the counter tops and to get rid of smudges little fingers left in our bathroom after playtime outside. These wipes are also great to disinfect our door knobs and light switches, remote controls and even drawer handles! It feels great knowing that I can just pull out a Seventh Generation Disinfecting wipe to clean and disinfect an area without much effort or worry to my kids will be harmed by harmful cleaners.

Our big Fall Clean-Up was not limited to just the inside of our home. We also started getting our yard ready for winter. Here are some of the tips from a post from a Seventh Generation blog post we used to help get our yard in shape for the season to come.

Compost Your Leaves
Instead of bagging up and throwing away your lawn clippings and leaves, you can turn them into fertilizer. Here are our little helpers accomplish this tip.



Use “People Power” When Cleaning the Yard
According to Seventh Generation’s post, using garden equipment engines make up 5 % of the nation’s air pollution. To cut down on the amount of pollution being emitted, use equipment where we become the engines that run these items. My other half used an axe to chop up the wood we had instead of a chainsaw. The kids are helping out by picking up the smaller pieces and loading them into their wagon to move them out of our yard.


Get Your Lawn Ready for Winter

When cutting your lawn for the last time this year, cut it a little shorter than usual to discourage matted grass and snow mold. Also spread a thin layer of compost over your lawn to keep your lawn healthy over the winter.

Spruce the House Up
Check around the outside of your home to see if any repairs (leaks or cracks) need to be made before winter is upon us. This could save you some money over the winter and keep you home warmer, too.

Clean Up Your Garden
Pick the rest of the fruits and veggies in your garden, and transplant any plants you want to enjoy over the winter indoors.

My family really enjoyed using Seventh Generation’s line of Disinfecting Cleaners. They helped us get through our big seasonal clean-up quickly and they worked on most of the surfaces we have in our home. It was also a relief knowing that these products are safe to use around our kids. So if you were looking for a clean team to help you clean your home quickly and safely, then you should try Seventh Generation’s Disinfecting Cleaners.
