Ever since I gave birth to my 2nd child two things seem to never end: laundry and dishes. They are always there; a permanent fixture in the house. It’s funny, when I think back to my own childhood, I remember my Mother constantly doing laundry and dishes too. I would stare at her back when she was at the sink waiting for her to be done or jump in and out of the basket in the living room. (What is it about newly folded laundry that makes kid’s want to pounce on it?) If I had money to burn I would hire someone to stay on top of Mt. Saint Laundry and The District of Dishes that is my kitchen sink. It’s not that I mind the actual act of washing and folding, it can be quite therapeutic at times say when you’re taking a break from zooming toy trains across a hard wooden floor (No honey, I’ll clean. You go play with the kids. Really.) What I do mind is the amount of time it takes to get it done. Like, if I have 15 minutes with two free hands do I want to be scrubbing pots and pans? No. I want to scrub pots and pans for 2 of the 15 minutes, poor a cup of coffee, check my Instagram feed, go pee, and call my Mom. (To tell her how much I appreciated how much she did for us, presumably.) You know what? Ever since I’ve been using Seventh Generation dish soap, I’ve been able to do just that. And I actually timed myself to see how long it would take, check out the results!
Clean up time using Seventh Generation dish soap = 10 seconds

Seventh Generation saves you time as it powers through tough food like anything the kids “eat” (aka push around and ultimately leave on their plates to dry.) It’s available in Lavender Floral & Mint, Lemongrass & Clementine Zest, or Fresh Citrus & Ginger *personal favorite* and uses the power of plants *not chemicals* to cut through grease and leave your dishes clean. It’s a non-toxic formula with no dyes or synthetic fragrances.
Look, your kids are eating food off these dishes.
Make sure that’s really all their ingesting…
