Seventh Generation Laundry Products Giveaway


How often do you think about what is next to your skin? Personally I haven’t thought that much about it, the only time it really crosses my mind is when I grab a sweater this time of year and then the first thought is great I’m going to be itchy all day. Then I received information from Seventh Generation through MyBlogSpark that got me thinking a little more about our laundry.

You see, some conventional laundry detergent manufacturers add what is called an optical brightener to their products. What does this do for you? It creates the illusion that your clothes are cleaner and brighter.  That’s all and good except according to scientific research, these can cause allergic reactions, and are toxic to small fish and other aquatic life.

Seventh Generation doesn’t use optical brighteners in their products and they´re also non-toxic. In addition, because Seventh Generationliquid laundry detergents are both hypo-allergenic and biodegradable they are a good choice for your family and the environment.

At their suggestion I did a little home experiment. I washed identical shirts using my conventional laundry soap and Seventh Generation laundry soap, then I placed them under a black light to check if they glowed. (The glow is caused by the optical brightener) See the picture below.

When washed in a conventional laundry detergent that contains optical brighteners, clothes appear to glow under a black light. When you use Seventh Generation liquid laundry products, you won´t see the same glow on your clothing. 

MyBlogSpark and Seventh Generation are giving away to one of our lucky reader a set of their laundry products.

    I protect my family and the environment by keeping driving to a minimum. We typically take care of our errands and outings locally and combine them for fewer trips which reduces our carbon footprint and saved on the gas bill.

    The Free & Clear Chlorine-Free Bleach has not been tested for its antimicrobial properties so they don’t recommend it as a disinfectant or sanitizer.
