I am an active mom of three, I like to think that our family does a lot of healthy activities. We also use and partner with brands that align to our needs and ideals as parents. We are happy to partner with Seventh Generation® as a brand ambassador. As always all opinions are our own.When I think abut fall I think about all of our favorite things to do. It’s been raining here in California and while we greatly appreciate all the rain we can get it really does make it feel like fall. So more than ever we want to spend time outdoors. After a long and extremely hot summer it’s nice to just get outside and play.
We are more ready than ever to hit the pumpkin patch and pick out pumpkins too. Our youngest has sensitive skin and so it’s important that while she plays outside we also try to keep her mess free. Having sensitive skin means that we also have to make sure that products that we use with her. Seventh Generation Free & Clear laundry detergent is a product that we use because it is tough on stains, but gentle on even the most sensitive skin.
Seventh Generation Free & Clear laundry detergent also received the EPA Safer Choice Seal, which means it includes ingredients that not only perform well, but are safer for the health of your family and the environment. Also that means here in California we can feel good about keeping our beaches and waterways clean and safe because it is made from 97 percent renewable biological (plant-based) sources.
It’s the perfect product for moms looking for a detergent that’s safe for washing onesies, blankets, crib sheets, towels and other items that come into close contact with your baby’s sensitive skin. It’s also tough on stains and does the job at getting your clothes clean. For our family we use it on all of Mia’s clothing and personal items, in fact since I have such sensitive skin it’s the only detergent we use in our home. Seventh Generation Free & Clear laundry detergent does not include any dyes, synthetic fragrances or artificial brighteners. What I want you to know about artificial (or optical) brighteners is that they are present in most other detergents – even those also called Free & Clear!
Optical brighteners are synthetic chemicals that make fabrics appear to glow in the presence of ultraviolet light. They don’t have anything to do with getting things clean –they’re only added to detergents to make us think our laundry is brighter and whiter. I find that to be such an interesting fact and I had no idea what all those whiteners and brighteners actually meant until now.
You can find these and other Seventh Generation Free & Clear laundry detergent products at your local retailers or online. Be sure to stay social with @SeventhGen on Twitter, Instagram, Pinterest and Facebook.
I’d love to know how do you know your clothes are actually clean?
