Summer is the ideal time to hit the open road in search of new discoveries—and new destinations. But being on the go doesn’t mean you have to leave your most trusted household products behind. Packaged for on-the-go convenience and made with ingredients that help nurture people and planet, our products let you bring the feel of home, and your commitment to a healthier world, wherever you go. 

If you’re planning a trip this season, we’ll show you how to build a travel cleaning kit that meets your family’s needs. 


The Essentials

Multi-Surface Wipes: From popsicle drips to sunscreen smears, traveling can get a little messy. That’s why our Lemon Zest Multi-Surface Wipes are an essential addition to your cleaning kit. Our versatile, convenient wipes work wonders wherever you need them, from kitchen counters to dirty dashboards, and get the job done with Safer Choice Certified ingredients that are safe for your loved ones. Kiss those everyday messes—and unneeded stresses—goodbye.

Laundry Packs: Any stay longer than a few nights means you’re likely going to do some laundry. And who wants to pack a heavy bottle of liquid laundry detergent when you’re only doing a few loads? Our super-convenient Free & Clear Laundry Detergent Packs fight your toughest everyday stains and are made for your family’s sensitive skin all in one. Made without the use of dyes, fragrances, or artificial brighteners—they’re easy to love, and so easy to pack. Perfect for rentals or road trips!


The Good to Haves

Dish Soap: If your travel unit doesn’t come with a dishwasher, or you prefer washing by hand, why not add a bottle of Seventh Generation Dish Soap to your cleaning kit? Our hardworking dishwashing liquid is a USDA Certified Biobased Product 95% made with renewable, plant-based ingredients. And it comes in a range of refreshing scents like Clementine Zest & Lemongrass and Fresh Lime & Ginger, all made from 100% essential oils and botanical ingredients.

Auto Dish Packs: Any extended-stay veteran knows that dishes pile up quick on vacation. Luckily, most rental units come with a dishwasher you can load throughout the day and run when it’s convenient. Our Dishwasher Detergent Packs give you a grease-fighting clean made with biobased enzymes that stand up to dried, stuck-on food. And like our Laundry Packs, they’re travel-friendly—and Safer Choice Certified for your healthy family

Paper Towels and Toilet Paper: Whether you’re road tripping, house sitting, or Airbnb-ing, Seventh Generation 100% recycled paper products work like you expect and help you consider your impact on the planet.


Wherever your adventures take you this summer (and beyond!), we hope these tips help you travel with ease and arrive prepared so you can soak up every moment and make memories to last a lifetime.
