Cold and flu season is something most parents dread. We REALLY dread it since LA was diagnosed with viral-induced asthma at nine months old. His condition makes the simple, common cold anything but simple so we must avoid germs any way possible. Seventh Generation has once again come to my rescue with their amazing, SAFE products to help when disinfecting our home.
The first thing that is so important is keeping our hands clean. Seventh Generation makes this easy and even pleasant with their scented hand soaps! The soap is gentle and 97% plant-based ingredients foam into a rich lather that leaves your hands clean and free of germs! Not only that, but the bottle is made of recycled materials! The soap leaves my hands noticeably soft and it is available in both mandarin and lavender scents. My absolute favorite is the mandarin! I love citrus scented soaps though! 😉
Seventh Generation’s facial tissues are made from 100% recycled paper and believe it or not, they are NOT rough on the nose! My husband was convinced these would not be soft and gentle, but he was soon admitting he was wrong! These are perfect for this time of year when allergies and colds are way too common. Our children see their fair share and more of these tissues!
Speaking of tissues, take a look at this awesome video showing you how to do a DIY Box Monster – super fun project with the kids!
How cool is that? The kids will have fun and they will love it, too!
Outside of handsoap and tissues, more must-have items for cold and flu season are safe disinfectants for cleaning and wiping away germs around the house! We all know that kids touch way too many things and put their hands in their mouths right after so we have to keep wiping everything down and washing whatever we can to keep germs at bay.
Seventh Generation has our answer to this problem as well! With their disinfecting wipes and multi-surface cleaner we are able to easily keep the counter tops, bathroom, table and more clean and free of harsh chemicals since of course the little ones will be touching these things soon after I clean them…for sure. It never fails! Both of these items kill over 99.99% of household germs, speciﬁcally: Influenza A viruses including H1N1, Rhinoviru and more! They are definitely the items to have on hand during cold and flu season!
Finally, the Free & Clean All Purpose Cleaner is another great product to keep around! This cleaner effectively removes grease, grime and dirt without creating harsh fumes. It is non-toxic, VOC-free formula works great on marble, granite, stainless steel and many other surfaces. We love this in our kitchen!
