What you talking about, Germs?

You know I'm the farthest thing from a germafob. With my first born though we really did attempt to make an honest effort as far as making sure his pacifiers were always spotless and his bottles disinfected between each use. Now I find myself going from the five second rule on things hitting the floor to the 30 seconds to "um.. it looks clean". Actually I belive to an extent that over shielding your children from regular old germs actually hurts them over helps them.

With all that said I do obviously disinfect all of our eating surfaces and bathroom. There is a huge difference between some dust bunnies on the floor and not properly cleaning up after cooking. Though my biggest gripe about the whole cleaning situation is most disinfectant products are way too harsh. I really hate to use them around my newborn and seeing as he is always fussy its rare that I get to put him down. So not only am I pressed for time but the products I use have to be baby safe. Seventh Generation has been one of our favorite sources for cleaning products for some time now due to the fact that they do not use harsh chemicals and still do the job as well as the ones that do!

Seventh Generation has a brand new line of disenfectant products including a disenfectant wipes, which by the way even my mom got excited about. The new disenfecant line includes an ingredient made from Thyme called thymol which kills 99% of germs and is safe to use on even children's toys and high chairs. Now that really is something to get excited about. My mom is a paper towel junkie to the point that we actually argue about how she is killing way too many trees. Seventh Generation also has a line of recycled paper towels which may not still be an excuse for my mom to go crazy but at least I feel a little better about her "paper towel habit". Seventh Generation and My Blog Spark sent us a great package that included some of the new Seventh Generation disinfectant cleaners, recycled paper towels, and a book called the The Conscious Kitchen which has great tips on how to effectively go green in your kitchen. I know it's sometimes really challenging knowing even where to start but we just started by switching our every day all purpose cleaner to a more eco friendly version and slowly have moved up from there one product and one step at a time. Now I'd say about 80% of the products we use in our home are ecofriendly. The biggest and hardest step for us was going from using paper towels to using washable rags. I only keep paper towels on hand now for covering food in the microwave and quick emergency cleanups. We even attempt to use fabric napkins now instead of paper ones when possible.

We absolutely adore Seventh Generation products and especially love the Disinfectant Multipurpose cleaner. One thing I really love about Seventh Generation products is how they seem to continue to keep things smelling great well after I've finished cleaning without leaving a chemical smell. I use the disinfectant cleaners in my diaper bins and they really seem to cut the odor left inside the trash cans really well.
