5 Fast Tips for a Cleaner Spring from Seventh Generation

Because a big part of Earth Day (and Earth Month) is about getting out and enjoying all that our lovely planet has to offer, we’re sharing some quick time-saving spring cleaning tips that’ll help you get to the things you really love to do. These tips come to us from Seventh Generation, whose botanical-based cleaning solutions — sprays, surface wipes, laundry detergents, dish soaps and more — are powered by plants and rooted in results. Bonus: Save on a variety of Seventh Generation cleaning solutions through May 1*.
 
  1. Clean as you go.
    Spend a few minutes wiping down the sink after you brush your teeth, and give kitchen surfaces a quick once-over with cleaning spray after cooking meals. Tip: Try Seventh Generation All Purpose Natural Cleaner to wipe up grease, grime and dirt without harsh fumes.
  2. Don’t let clutter happen. 
    When you bring something in the door, find a place for it immediately. Don’t leave a mess you’ll have to tidy later.
  3. Multitask. 
    Wash prep dishes as meals cook, or start a load of laundry before bedtime stories. Tip: Try Seventh Generation Dish Liquid to limit environmental impact.
  4. Take stock. 
    Every time you reach into your pantry, fridge or freezer, do a quick scan for expired or old food to compost or toss. Before throwing away, be sure to check and see if the container can be recycled.
  5. Hit the hot spots. 
    Make a game out of wiping these down every day: faucets, appliance handles, doorknobs, phones, cabinet knobs, remote controls, toilet handles. Try Seventh Generation Disinfecting Multi-Surface Cleaner to clean with botanical ingredients, including thyme oil.
