Hello all, I hope you had a wonderful Thanksgiving! We certainly did. Jem's all worn out and cranky, adjusting to our humdrum life back at home after a weekend at Grandma's house. Thankfully Monday is just one day!
You may remember my glowing review of The Laundry Tarts cloth diaper detergent. Sadly, I'm almost out of my first bag and having some trouble getting my hands on another one (shipping for a 4 lb bag from Canada isn't cheap), but I've had the pleasure recently of trying a product from the Tarts' partner company, Monkey Doodlez.
Monkey Doodlez WipeCubes are a great alternative! One of these tiny little cubes mixed with water makes a whole bottle full of solution. Jem has had no problem with them, even though they are scented (lavender and tea tree). They smell great and clean beautifully! Just mix one cube in 2 cups of warm water and either fill a spray bottle or pour over your cloth wipes in a container. (I personally prefer the spray bottle method...just makes it easier!)
My one caution, for those who prefer to use an oil based solution, is that these wipes are meant to be mixed with water, not oil. With the right wipes, however, you can still get a good glide! I find that microfleece wipes work great with these cubes. Monkey Doodlez does not recommend using oil-based products with cloth diapers.
The ingredients are as follows: Ingredients: 100% Vegetable Base Glycerine (Aqua, Glycerin, Sodium Stearate and Sodium Oleate, Sorbitol, Stearic Acid, Lauric Acid, Sodium Laurate, Sodium Myristate, Pentasodium Penteate, Tetrasodium Etidronate), 100% Pure Aloe Vera Gel, Steam Distilled Lavender Essential Oil, Tea Tree Oil. CONTAINS NO SURFACTANTS OR PROPYLENE GLYLCOL, SODIUM LAURYL SULPHATE OR SODIUM LAURETH SULPHATE.
The best part is that MonkeyDoodlez is offering my readers 15% off any size container of Wipe Cubes for the next seven days with the code JEMS15. So if you're disappointed that Cyber Monday sales are about to end, you can make the savings last just a little longer! :-) Also, Kelly at Monkey Doodlez has told me that their shopping cart is quoting some strange prices for shipping, so just disregard those prices and they'll be properly adjusted on your final invoice.
Happy Holidays to all of you!
