Going Natural

There are lots of natural product lines on the market now, so it can be a little overwhelming to choose the one that fits your preferences.  I’ve tried a few different brands over the last couple of years, but I recently had the chance to try out a few items from the Logic Products line!

As you can see they offer a broad line of products that benefit the home, kids, and even pets!  To give you an idea as to what sets this line apart from other brands, here are a few facts about their products (via logicproducts.com):

  • Plant and Mineral Derived Formulas
  • Vegan
  • Cruelty Free
  • Pthlalate Free
  • PEG Free
  • TEA Free
  • No Synthetic Dyes
  • No Noxious Fumes
  • No Methylisothiazolinone
  • No Benzisothiazolinone
  • No Petrochemicals
  • No Synthetic fragrances
  • No Phosphates
  • Chlorine Free
  • Bleach Free
  • Recyclable Packaging
  • Made In U.S.A.
  • And more!

Wow, reading this list makes we want to check the labels on some of my other leading brand household products under the sink. Overall, it seems that the goal of Logic Products is too keep the ingredients in their products simple and pure.  I slowly began switching to natural cleaning products when I started having kids.  I worried about them inhaling/absorbing harsh chemicals and of course I didn’t want them ingesting any dangerous cleaning solutions.  But depending on where you live, natural products can be in limited supply and pricing can be a little higher compared to average products.

I found that Logic Products are pretty comparable to other natural brands.  They usually have a good selection of sale products and they offer free shipping for orders over $49!  They also offer a quality guarantee…but this part was a little confusing – You can return “new, unopened items sold and fulfilled by Logic Product Group within 15 days of delivery for a full refund.” But, “new and unopened” would mean that you didn’t get to try out the product so how would you know if you liked it or not? Maybe this applies if you ordered more than product, tried one and wanted to return the rest?  Hmmm…

Anywho, here is what I thought about the products I tried!

Barklogic Wipes ($12.00):  I liked the tangerine smell,  but I don’t think my pets really liked being wiped down. 😉

Totlogic Sunscreen ($16.95): This didn’t really stand out to me compared to other natural sunscreens.

Licelogic Prevention Spray ($16.95): I liked the smell and the concept of this product (especially with little kids), I just had a hard time remembering to take the extra step and actually applying it to my kids’ hair.

Homelogic Dish Soap ($7.95): Loved the scent and it left my hands feeling soft while getting the job done on the dishes.

And my favorite item from this set?!

Homelogic Hand Soap ($5.95): I really enjoyed the light and refreshing scent!  And the kids loved that it was a foam so they thought it was fun to wash their hands!

I would really like to try more of their products from the Homelogic line, like the Odor Eliminating Spray and the All Purpose Cleaner.  I also would be interested in the shampoo, conditioner, and bubble bath from the Totlogic line.

You can purchase any of their products directly from the website.  You can find the Barklogic products either online or in PetCo stores nationwide.  And you can also Contact Logic Products directly to find the nearest store where their products are sold!

What do you think?  Have you made the switch to natural products yet?!

E-Cloth = A-mazing!

My latest review is for a product called E-cloth!  E-cloth is a microfiber cloth that is designed to clean surfaces with water alone.  Their slogan is “Chemical Free Cleaning” and they claim that these cloths will kill 99% of bacteria by “collecting bacteria rather than “killing bacteria”.  They offer different cloths for each part of the house and I chose the one that cleans the kitchen!

I was a little skeptical about this product at first just because I didn’t believe that a cloth could clean and kill bacteria without the use of some type of cleaner.  So I avoided cleaning some areas in my kitchen for a couple of days so I could really see this thing in action.  I started with the stovetop…

Before!

And after about 45 seconds of scrubbing…Voila!

I was really surprised at how well it cleaned the stove with no assistance from any other cleaners in less than a minute.  I did have to use a little spray to get the rest of the spots, but that’s always a really difficult area to clean.

Next, I cleaned out a cup…

I also found this task pretty simple with using the e-cloth rather than using a scrub brush.  I was pretty much able to clean out each cup with just one swipe!

Then, I tried out the e-cloth on the sink!  Here is the before…

Like I said, I didn’t clean it for a few days….And here is the after!

img_0379img_0380

Bam! Look at that.  Like a brand new sink!  Beautiful!  And all done in less than a minute with just the e-cloth and water!

Then, I popped it in the washer!

And there you go…refreshed and ready to get back to work!

I really wasn’t expecting much from this product, but was surprised to see how well it did around the kitchen.  I also like using chemical free products around the house since the kids touch everything.  I don’t know if it’s a mental thing, but for certain spills and areas I feel like I would still use some type of cleaner to help with the germs.  But overall, I really liked this product and I am excited to try out the other cloths for other parts of the house!

5 Tips for Hosting a Healthy Baby Home Party

One of the perks of being in the  Generation Good community through Seventh Generation is the opportunity to host a Healthy Baby Home Party!  This is your chance to share the benefits of utilizing Seventh Generation home and baby products!  If you are selected to host a party, you will receive a free kit with everything you need for your gathering.

The kit contains lots of goodies from Healthy Child Healthy World, Bobble, Annie’s, Stonyfield, and of course  Seventh Generation.  So here are a few tips to get you started with your party!

  • Go to your Generation Good dashboard and look over everything that will be expected of you throughout the campaign.  This includes emailing out invitations, taking pictures, and posting on social media.

 

  • Decide on a location and time…then get your invitation list started.  It’s up to you if you would like kids to be present or not.  Some hosts will hold their parties at home, restaurants, community centers, etc.  I did mine at a park during the day so that kids could come, too.

 

  •  Open your kit and sort out the materials.  You will have enough samples, coupons and handouts for up to 12 people.  There will also be an agenda and a link to a video for your attendees to watch.  You will also be provided with a bingo game and some products to give out as prizes for the winners.
  • Assemble your bags and decide which prize you would like to keep for yourself.  I decided to keep the dish detergent! Also look over the materials and watch the video in case anyone has any questions.

  • Share info and play bingo! My kit came with a box of crackers to give as a prize, but instead I brought cupcake liners and shared them with the whole group.  You could also use them as bingo markers!

But most importantly…have fun!  It’s an exciting way for you and your attendees to learn healthier ways to incorporate cleaner products into your home!  I enjoyed learning about the healthy home facts through the bingo game and I really loved passing out all of the SWAG! 😉

What do you think?  Would you host a Healthy Baby Home Party?!
