I’ve definitely changed since becoming a parent. I pay far more attention to what is in things like household cleaners, whereas before I just grabbed whatever was on sale. It’s still hard for me to know which companies to trust since all of a sudden everything seems to claim that they are “green”.
Seventh Generation makes it easy to make the right choice; all of their ingredients are listed on their packages and online and they even explain the purpose of some of the less-natural sounding ingredients. As a member of Mom Central, I was happy to learn that I would be receiving coupons from Seventh Generation so that I could try out a variety of their products.
The products I was most looking forward to trying were their Free & Clear diapers and baby wipes. We primarily cloth diaper, but overnight or if we’re on the road (or just behind on laundry) we’ll use disposables. The first thing that I thought when I opened the package was “wow, these would be perfect for photo shoots”. A neutral tan colour, there aren’t any busy logos or characters all over these diapers. I was concerned that I didn’t see the size of the diaper printed on it (nothing worse than a few orphan diapers you find in the diaper bag and you can’t tell which size they are!), but when I put the first one on Rowan I found that the size was printed inside the left tab.
The Free & Clear Diapers are softer than other brands of disposables that we have used, which was surprising to me because they’re made with chlorine free wood pulp fluff, which doesn’t exactly sound cozy. They fit Rowan perfectly and have passed the overnight and potential-pooplosion tests with flying colours. I’m a convert!
The Free & Clear wipes are another winner. They have a fabric-like feel and a pleasant scent even though they contain no alcohol, synthetic cleaners, dyes or fragrances. I wonder if the scent is due to the aloe and vitamin E that they contain? These will live in my diaper bag since I’m comfortable using them on hands and faces as well as tushies.
I feel so much better knowing that I’m using environmentally friendly laundry detergent for my girls, especially since we do so much laundry, and the dish detergent does a better job than the giant yellow bottle sitting underneath my sink.
