When I got the Natural Baby Starter Kit I was so excited, in it was:
- 1 package of chlorine free diapers (we got the size 1)
- Tub Chlorine-Free Baby Wipes
- Chlorine-Free Baby Wipes Refill
- Natural Baby Laundry Detergent
- Instead of the Reusable Tote that was supose to come (don't know why we didn't get it though), we got natural all purpose cleaner and 100% recycled paper towels
The next thing was the baby wipes, I liked those, they didn't have a smell, and they cleaned poop up pretty well, just like I'd expect a wipe to do lol. They were the pop-up kind so when you pulled one wipe out, another would be right behind it so it was easy to grab wipe after wipe. The refil pack had one of those resealable tabs on the top so you could use the wipes straight out of there or tear it open and put them in the tub when you ran out.
This is the 1st time I've ever used all natural laundry detergent, so I was especially curious about it. I have to say, I'm in LOVE with it! I have to tell you this story, I know if you come to my blog often you see Jaylin carrying her "baby" (the puffalump duck) and she was about to start school and I had to wash the dirty little thing because she carries it EVERYWHERE and I hardly ever get a chance to wash it (trust me, the whole time I was washing it, she was crying for it!) I put it in a pillowcase and threw it in the washer with some of the Seventh Generation All Natural Baby Laundry Detergent and boy when I got it out, I hadn't seen it THAT clean since it was new (Christmas of 2007 I think lol) No harsh smell, no harsh chemicals or anything, and it come out looking better than when I wash it with regular detergent! Another funny story about the detergent...DON'T put it on your dryer, Jeff put it there for some odd reason (seriously, we have a shelf above the washer and dryer for that stuff!) and the dryer was on, we had just layed in bed when we heard a "THUMP" I layed there knowing something fell off the dryer but wasn't sure what...when I got up it was the Seventh Generation detergent and it was sitting on the floor...on its TOP, well what used to be the top. When it fell, it fell on the top, so the lid and all broke and went INSIDE the bottle and it was just sitting on the floor upside down. I picked it up and only a small puddle of the detergent had gotten out...but we were never able to get the lid out to be able to properly measure detergent again lol.
As for the paper towels and all purpose cleaner...I was also impressed with those! The recycled paper towels seemed to absorb a lot better than regular paper towels and the all purpose cleaner got up all of the kids messes on the kitchen table and counter as if it was nothing!
With the exception of the diapers, I'm really happy with the Seventh Generation products I got to try. But Seventh Generation makes a lot more than just baby products, they have regular laundry detergent (liquid and powder), different cleaners (surface, glass, etc), feminine care, dishwashing, and a lot more!
