Seventh Generation Natural Dish Liquid Review & Giveaway

For the record, I hate doing dishes.  Like seriously hate it.  There are several things about being in the kitchen that I enjoy.  Cooking, for example, I enjoy.  Baking, I enjoy that as well.  Eating? Clearly from the size of my *ss one can I gather that I enjoy that probably a little too much.  I'm a big fan of using fun new gadgets, white dinnerware, and getting new stuff to try out.  But the final step in the kitchen -the cleanup, dish scrubbing, soaking, dishwasher loading/unloading process, etc. I don't care for at all.

However, like many duties that go along with running a household doing dishes is an unavoidable chore that all of us must face at least once a day.  So I was happy when MyBlogSpark contacted me to try out some Seventh Generation Natural Dish Liquid to feature on my blog.  In addition to 4 bottles of dish soap in 4 great scents, they also sent me some great items to help that whole "doing the dishes" thing go a bit smoother. And if you are a good chicken and keep reading, maybe you'll be my lucky winner and get a prize pack filled with goodies for your dish-doing delight...


Seventh Generation dish liquid is available in 4 varieties: Free & Clear, Lavender Floral & Mint, Fresh Citrus & Ginger, and (my personal favorite) Lemongrass & Clementine Zest.  Aside from smelling great, working well on my dishes, and not drying out my hands, the scents all come from authentic ingredients grown in real fields!  No factory-made synthetic stuff here. 

Learn more and enter the “Nature Makes Perfect Scents” sweepstakes at seventhgeneration.com/scents  You and a guest can have the chance to take a trip to visit one of the sourcing sites of Seventh Generation natural dish liquid fragrance ingredients. Visit seventhgeneration.com/scents to learn more about each scent’s origin.

Finally, for the super-dooper exciting part.... the GIVEAWAY. (super-dooper is Joey's favorite phrase these days and it's really growing on me so you'll probably see it a lot... that's the glory of reading mom-blogs... they're filled with totally awesome 4-year old vocabulary highlights.)  Anyway, here's the deal:

One lucky winner chosen at random will receive a prize pack for their very own, courtesy of MyBlogSpark and Seventh Generation.  This will include:
  • (4) bottles of Seventh Generation natural dish liquid varieties in Free & Clear, Lavender Floral & Mint, Fresh Citrus & Ginger, and Lemongrass & Clementine Zest scents.
  • Premium 3 Qt. 12” x 9” Baking Dish from Le Creuset©
  • (2) Twist© loofah sponges and (2) Twist© scour pads made from 100% post-recycled materials.
  • Set of 3 organic cotton dish towels.

This is a pretty awesome prize pack in my opinion... aside from the 4 bottles of dish soap, the baking dish is of an amazing quality and I can't wait to use it. -I haven't done ANY cooking this week... I'm sick with Strep and an ear infection so my kids have been living off of junk food.  However, when I am cooking again I can't wait to use this dish. I have used the scour pads for scrubbing a couple of left-on-the-stove-all-night mac & cheese pans with stuck on processed cheese product, and they truly worked great. (with the help of Seventh Generation dish liquid, obviously)  And who doesn't need some new dish towels?  Awesome, right?  We sure did... many of ours are from before we got married in 2004, so new ones are very exciting.

Anyway, you probably know the drill with my giveaways, but I'll post the rules here anyway:

There is never anything special you have to do for the first entry.  Just leave me a comment and tell me why you'd like this prize pack.  You can go a few extra steps out of your way to earn up to 10 extra entries though, and you do that by doing some or all of the following:
  • Become a follower of Thou Shall Not Whine (3 extra entries!) *Just click the little "follow" button on the right-hand sidebar, then leave me 3 additional comments stating, "follower #1, follower #2, etc."
  • Follow my blog on Facebook (2 extra entries) *click on the networked blog button on the right-hand sidebar, then leave 2 additional comments stating that you did!*
  • Grab my button and display it on your blog (2 extra entries!)
  • Mention this giveaway on your blog with a link back to it. (2 extra entries!)
  • Leave a comment on a non-giveaway post. (leave an additional comment here to count as your entry!)
This giveaway starts now and will conclude on Friday, November 18th, at 11:59pm EST. Winner will be selected via Random.org and contacted via email. Winner will have 48 hours to respond before another winner will be chosen.
*Disclosure:* The Seventh Generation Natural Dish Liquid prize pack, product and information have been provided by Seventh Generation through MyBlogSpark.  All opinions expressed are my own.

I'd like to win for two reasons. First, and most important, I'm moving our home to being more green, especially when it concerns cleaners - Seventh Generation and Twist products would be a huge help! Second, and more shallow...I like Le Creuset! asthenight at gmail dot com
