Seventh Generation Review and Giveaway

Summer is over, and for many of us that means back to school time is near.I am sending my 2 boys to public school for the first time ever this year and I am terrified.Why? I hate germs,especially germs from strangers.I try to never let my kids use public fountains or restrooms unless it cannot be avoided.I carry sanitizer in my purse and avoid crowded public places at peak times.To put it mildly,I am paranoid.With nearly 22 million school days lost every year due to the common cold and flu (CDC) and as many as 2.7 million bacterial found per square inch on common school surfaces,it's no wonder I worry about germs!
Seventh Generation is a company made for people like me.Seventh Generation has decided to make our lives a little easier with their "Back-to-School" kit. The kit includes a Seventh Generation backpack, two canisters of Seventh Generation disinfecting wipes (one for home and one to donate to your child´s classroom), disinfecting multi-surface spray cleaner, facial tissue and paper towels.This is my kit when it arrived.
These items are fabulous! The first one I tried were the paper towels.I love that they are made from 100% recycled paper,hypoallergenic and unbleached.The towels are brown,which is a change from my pretty prints,but the quality was great.I was able to clean counters,tables and more without them ripping or falling apart.

I also loved the disenfecting wipes.I tried these in the kids bathroom.Not only do they prevent germs,but they clean wonderfully  too.I cleaned the sink and bathtub and didn't even have to add cleaner.I did not expect that from a wipe.The scent is very strong and makes you feel you are getting a good clean surface."Sixty percent of teachers surveyed said that they request that parents donate disinfecting wipes to the classroom. Seventh Generation´s disinfecting wipes kill 99.99% of germs* naturally using the active ingredient thyme, a component of thyme oil which is derived from the herb thyme"

I have a surprise! Thanks to Seventh Generation one of you can win your own "Back To School" kit just like the one I reviewed.

I was thinking about buying one of those automatic soap dispensers for my daughter's pre-k restroom. That way no one is spreading gross restroom germs back and forth.
