Softy Sanitizing Wipes for Hands and Surfaces Review



These have got to be one of my favorite things that I’ve received as a blogger to review. I’m a HUGE fan of the Lysol or Clorox type wipes. I know, I know, they aren’t the most environmentally friendly option, however I feel an insane amount of accomplishment when using them to clean because they work on many different surface types and they remove all sorts of nastyness with just one swipe. In general, they get the job done and don’t leave me wondering what kind of gunk or bacteria I’ve left behind. Fast forward to last month when I was given the opportunity to try the Softy wipes… woohoo, I’m in love.

First, here’s a few words from the Amazon product page that the company has provided about the product:

  • 150 ct. EXTRA LARGE 7″ x 8″ wipes. Use fewer wipes to get the job done.
  • Anti-bacterial formula kills 99.9% of germs in less than 5 seconds.
  • Use on hands, body, and surfaces. Alcohol-free. Vitamin E + Aloe. Feels fabulous on your hands.
  • Soft & thick quilted fabric for a plush, pillowy feel. Strong enough to hold a 12-kg kettlebell.
  • Citrus Fresh Scent that smells amazing! Made in the USA.
  • The world is a big, gross place. Thankfully, we created a sanitizing wipe with the stopping power of an elephant gun to keep the nastiness at bay. Germaphobes, rejoice, for we are your new protectors. Give us your children’s grubby fingers, your subway handrails, even your disgusting hotel TV remotes. Softy wipes will accept any challenge, anywhere; killing 99.9% of every germ in their path. We like those odds. We think you will, too. Let’s keep it clean.

    – Alcohol free antimicrobial solution that kills 99.9% of germs within 5 seconds.
    – Unlike gels, our wipes help not only to sanitize but remove dirt as well. Cleaning made easy when soap and water is not available.

    – Softy Wipes are manufactured in the USA at an EPA registered and FDA approved facility.
    – On Sale. Buy Now!

My first impressions: First of all, the container and wipes are HUGE. They are at least 1.5 times larger than a normal Clorox or Lysol container, and the wipes themselves are larger too. Second, their texture truly lives up to their name. ‘Softy’ wipes are soft and absorbent, reminding me a bit of the texture of quality baby wipes instead of the roughness of bleach wipes. But don’t let their softness fool you, they don’t rip or fall apart like paper towels, and they can scrub like a champ. Perhaps my favorite feature of these wipes is that they DON’T STINK LIKE BLEACH. While they smell clean, they lack the harsh bleach smell of their more mainstream counterparts.

Other bonuses include: the ability to use them on your hands. I would never (ok, I have before in emergency type situations) use Lysol or Clorox wipes on my hands. But Softy wipes are infused with Aloe and Vitamin E to keep your hands moisturized and will not leave them feeling dry or sticky like my previous favorite wipes. Also, they stay moist down to the last wipe or your money back. With a guarantee like that, you really can’t go wrong.

In addition, they are made in the United States at a FDA and EPA regulated facility. Sometimes I forget how important this is, but it’s always nice to know that they are created on the same continent by able bodied adults using government regulated standards.

Overall, I am insanely impressed by these wipes. Not only do they work amazing, but they qualify for Amazon Prime 2 day shipping, which means you don’t have to trudge down to the store next time you realize you’re out of your favorite wipes. Give these a shot, I promise you won’t be disappointed!

Baby Gender Reveal Kit Review




This is a fun one. Almost everyone wants to know the gender of their baby as soon as possible, myself included. There are many ‘wives tales’ about pimple break outs, how high you are carrying, heart rate, how much you are glowing, the amount of morning sickness, etc. The list goes on and on. However doctors cannot officially check for gender until at least 14 weeks when baby’s sex organs are developed enough to be able to differentiate on an ultrasound. This fun kit claims to be able to tell you whether you are having a boy or girl as early as 6 weeks pregnant by using a similar method to the pregnancy test that you took when you first found out you were pregnant.

First, a few notable words from the Amazon product page:

  • Gender Reveal Test Kit is perfect for discovering the sex of your baby and for your Reveal Party
  • SIMPLE TO USE urine test can be performed as early as 6 weeks of pregnancy. Provides Clear Results! Designed for easy home use by curious expectant mothers.
  • Proven to be 100% ACCURATE about half the time. 😉 It’s quick, easy to use, and easy to understand. The clear test tube makes it as easy to read as a baby monitor display. The color chart indicates boy or girl requiring no subjective interpretation. It’s natural – no drugs or invasive devices and procedures.
  • COMPREHENSIVE and PERSONAL. The most advanced way of testing and the safest non-invasive method that detects gender indicators.
  • GUARANTEED ACCURATE or MONEY BACK! Order yours and find out if your baby is a boy or girl. Click ADD TO CART!

Just to be clear, I want to point out a few things before I get into my experience with the product. As stated above, it is proven to be “100% accurate about half the time”. So this means it is only about 50% accurate, which are the same odds as if someone were to walk up to you and take a guess. That being said, they also offer a money back guarantee where if you are not happy with the product, they’ll refund your purchase.

Obviously this gender reveal test was not intended as a replacement for a doctor’s sonogram. It’s made for fun, or a gift for an excited mom who just found out that she’s expecting. I didn’t take it seriously like some of the other people who have written negative reviews about it, mainly because it clearly states on both the product page and the box that it is not 100% accurate and they recommend that you “wait to paint the nursery or make any financial or emotional decisions”.

Ok, now on to the fun part. Here’s my experience using the product:

  • Unfortunately it did not come in the box as displayed on the Amazon product page. Instead it came in a brown cardboard box. However, there were two kits included so you can either double test, or have two gifts.
  • The instructions are very clear. Pee into a cup, use the syringe to put a few drops into the test tube, then shake. The tube will either turn green for a boy or purple for a girl.
  • My results: I used both kits just to give it a fair shot. Both tubes turned green indicating that I’m having a boy. Considering I’m 7 months pregnant and have had 4 ultrasounds indicating that it’s a girl, I’m going to side with the doctors on this one.

Long story short, this gender reveal kit is for entertainment purposes only. As long as you understand that, you’ll think it’s great.

Soothie Suckers Herbal Ice Pops Review and Giveaway



What little kid doesn’t just LOVE popsicles? But have you ever read the list of ingredients? Oh.My.Gosh. Prepare to be disgusted. Pretty much, when your wee ones eat an ice pop they are eating straight up frozen corn syrup mixed with some nasty food dye. I’m not exactly the first person to claim to be the most health conscious, but I try to minimize the things that I know are the worst, and replace them with healthier alternatives. I was very excited to try out Soothie Sucker’s Herbal Ice Pops, and so was my son.

Here are a few fabulous facts about the ice pops:

  • Available in two flavors: Orange for Immune Support and Grape for Nasal Support
  • Can be eaten frozen or chilled as a liquid
  • Pre measured into 1 oz. pouches so you can take them with you on the go
  • Contains certified organic or wild-crafted herbal extracts
  • No artificial flavors, high fructose corn syrup or alcohol


Admittedly, my son isn’t the pickiest of eaters. He’ll try just about anything once (he seems to trust my judgement… for now). So after popping one of each flavor into the freezer overnight, we were ready to try them! They are conveniently packaged, with just the right amount inside. Sometimes it seems that ice pops are so HUGE that by the time a kid is only a quarter way through it, it has already melted everywhere. But this is not the case with these Soothie Suckers.

We tried the grape first. Not what I expected. Usually grape flavoring (other than actual grapes) is totally not my favorite, and it always drives me nuts that it tastes nothing like real grapes. But this was different… in a good way. The flavor was less artificial tasting, and more like what I’d expect from something that claims to be ‘grape’. Little man didn’t mind the flavor… until he tried the orange. Once he got some orange in his mouth, he was no longer interested in the grape and I was lucky to snatch it away for just a moment to try it for myself. I must say, I understand why he liked it so much. The orange is DELICIOUS!

In terms of health benefits, it’s hard for me to say. Our household is rarely ill, and during the course of testing these we have not had any issues with sniffles, colds or flu. Perhaps we have the immune boost from the popsicles to thank for that!?

Overall, this is a great product made with kid and adult friendly ingredients. I always say, control what you can, and don’t worry about what you can’t. But what your kid puts into his/her mouth is something you can definitely attempt to control!
