The Meditation of Cleaning plus WIN a hamper with Seventh Generation


I'm first to admit I'm not the cleanest person, you'll probably never see me doing a speed cleaning video (yep thats really a thing!). Recently however I've been cleaning a lot more because we have been having house viewings and family over and dare I say it I've been appreciating the moments completing a task like this, almost like a mediation or process of cleaning the mind.

When you have small kids getting anything accomplished can feel like a mammoth task. There are days when you feel like you have literally not got anything done so doing something simple like washing up can actually give you a sense of satisfaction (an insight into how exciting my life is??).

I'm working with Seventh Generation a company that sells green cleaning products in this post. I'll be  sharing what we thought of their products but also give five of you the chance to win a hamper including all the products pictured below!

Before having children I was quite clued up on using more eco type products. I've always been conscious to not use things tested on animals or ones including heavily performed scents but when I became a mum I became even more aware. There is something about having a newborn with that new fresh skin that feels even more important to not use harsh chemicals on. Most people think of this in terms of washing detergent (which is obviously important) but I feel like its just as important with what you wash your dishes with.

I really love the washing liquid as it feels like a little will go a really long way and it becomes really frothy.


I don't usually go all out and wash the windows that often but since we've been doing to with the viewings its been quite a nice routine to get into. Mabli will often help me and have her own little cloth and wash the french doors at her height, so cute!


Is it weird that I really like doing laundry? There is something about having clean clothes all sorted out and folded into their piles that feels so satisfying. I love that these are unscented and clean really well, especially with the state the kids clothes get into.



We've now been using all the products pictured for about two weeks and are big fans. The brand has been going strong in the US for 28 years but are new to the UK. You can find them at Tesco and they currently have 15% off if you buy online using the code GRXN7Y before the 17th of July.

Five winners will be chosen using the random generator and the winners will be announced on this blog post in two weeks time. Good luck!
Have you tried this brand before? Let me know what you think.

I've never tried this brand before but I've been looking at them for a few weeks now because I need to change laundry detergent due to fragrance allergies, so I'd love to try these products! I know a lot of people in the US like the brand so it's great to see its made its way over here, finally we're getting more choice in eco friendly brands!

I'm a new reader of the blog so hello! I'm really pleased to have found you and your little corner of the internet :)
