Pickles The Pig DIY Diaper Wipe Kit: Review and GIVEAWAY

Wednesday, June 16, 2010


 GIVEAWAY IS NOW CLOSED: SEE WINNERS CIRCLE TAB AT THE TOP IF YOU WON!

I was really intrigued and excited when Pickles contacted me about their new product The Do It Yourself Diaper Wipe Kit.
Since I cloth diaper most of the time it only made sense to have a DIY wipe kit, right?!
People, once you have this kit you will NEVER go back to buying wipes.
The kit consists of a custom wipes container, starter roll of wipes & wipe solution(which is soap).
The nice thing about this is that I can use whatever ingredients I like.
I used Live Clean Baby Bubble Bath( free of a parabens, SLS/Sulfate free & organic), for a soothing oil I used my precious liquid gold(no I don't mean breast milk) but Calendula Oil from Weleda.  Great to soothe a fiery teething derriere and it protects the delicate skin.
What's the ingredients in your brand name/no name brand?  Go take a look.
How economical is this wiping system?  Well once you buy the kit or if your lucky you may win this kit the dollars will add up in savings.  It also feels good to be making your own wipes, very eco and smart.  No laundry needed, just toss the wipes in the garbage or flush; if you buy ones like Kushies. You can also personalise the moisture level of the wipe for a toddler poop (needs more moisture) or a newborn poop, which you will remember, needs more grabbing power than a super wet wipe.
The directions are super easy.  Warm up a cup of water add your soap and oil, pour it into the wipes container with  the wipes in it.  Once the cardboard roll(like a paper towel roll) is soggy remove it. Voila you have your own wipes, remove the center and begin once it's at room temperature.  All you need to maintain the kit is good quality paper towel.  I even used Kushies cloth diaper flushable liner since it looks like a heavy duty toilet paper roll and it's great!  Mine stays great for a about a week and a half and then I'm done and it's time for a new roll to make.  It is a godsend, yes strong words for a DIY wipe kit but why bother with anything else?  Seriously my lovely readers it's that great and very frugal too.
What do you think?  Wanna try it?  Here's the giveaway!

Can't wait until the giveaway ends to try this FANTASTIC kit?  If you go to Pickles the Pig Website you can purchase this kit for an amazing price of $8 CDN,  it retails for $16 in the stores and they do ship to the States as well.  Just email info@picklesthepig.ca and tell them you saw it on Everything Mom and Baby and you want it for $8!
