As a mom, I use a lot of detergent, dish soap and cleaning supplies.. I’m always looking for new options as far as brands go. Yes, I always prefer to make my own, however if I run out of something, it’s nice to be able to reach for a bottle I trust to use around my kids.
The wonderful people over at Dapple sent me a few products to try just for that reason. They believe that products should be made with children in mind, and the messes that they make. For instance, using regular dish soap on bottles and sippy cups, they realized it was leaving a film and scent on all the bottles that they didn’t want. The lingering floral scent from the soap was not a safe mesh with the milk that was put in it.
They decided to make plant based products without any harmful chemicals or fragrances/perfumes, that was designed to clean up all the messes that children can make!
I love their message, because when I buy anything anymore, I turn the bottle over and read the ingredients. If there is one thing in the product that has me concerned to use around my daughters… I put it back. With cleaning products, it’s really easy to pollute your home, I do my best not to do so.
Dapple has some pretty awesome products. I encourage you to head over to their website and check them out!
Remember the dish soap I was talking about?
I really liked this. My kids…. well my 18 month old is an expert at hiding things, especially her sippy cup. So, when I see a hidden sippy cup, my stomach instantly turns. I’m praying it’s no more than a day old and it’s just water. However, that’s never the case.. It’s always a 2 or 3 day old sippy cup of almond milk. I can see the dreaded thick milk film on the side of the cup and consider just throwing the whole cup away!
This soap though is good! Cuts right through it with no problem! Big thing I like is that it is fragrance free. So, you don’t have the gagging smell of old almond milk and flowers. That happened once, never again!
Check out those ingredients! I love their humor too. Notice the difference though, most warning labels consist of “if consumed, contact poison control”. Not dapple, theirs say “drink water to dilute”. It’s all plant based and natural products. It can give moms that breathe easy feeling when it comes to cleaning products.
Next, Cleaning Spray!
Babies have blowouts. It happens A LOT! I’ve gotten pretty smart and stopped changing diapers on those pretty little changing table pillow cases. We have ruined more of those than I know. However, now that we’re changing on easy to clean surfaces, the last thing I want to do is spray some chemical filled spray where they will be laying on it again, an hour later. Just doesn’t seem right to me. Plus, most cleaners have bleach or stinky chemicals to where their room now smells.
Dapple has an awesome lemon scented spray that cuts through any disgusting mess and leaves a clean smell after. It’s their nursery cleaner and I love it. I don’t only just use it in the nursery, but also for wiping down highchairs and their food trays.
I want you to go find the cleaner you are using now. Read the warning label. I bet most don’t say just drink a glass of water if ingested.. Once again… it’s safe! They even have a little tip which I know a lot of people don’t consider when they are buying a “natural” product. You have to read your ingredients..Some can still have allergens and toxic by products.
I really love this brand!
What every kitchen needs….Cleaning Wipes!
After our kids are done eating or while we are cleaning the kitchen, most people reach for a tub of cleaning wipes. If this is you, I encourage you to read the ingredients. Most of us know that cleaning wipes consist of bleach. Not exactly kid friendly.
Dapple cleaning wipes really cut through the grit and grime and clean! I was pretty impressed when I used it on my stove. I am an incredibly messy person when it comes to cooking. Things overflow and get cooked onto my stove top. I have sauces and oils all over the counter and my oldest never fails to say “mommy, you made a mess!”
I love how durable the wipes are and the messes it can easily clean. They can scrub and not crumble and tear, but they are so gentle when needed.
Once again, look at the ingredients. Cleaners made from vegetables, sugar and apples! Hard to believe considering how well these wipes clean! Great to have in the car too. I’ve spilled my coffee in the console and didn’t have the time to clean it up right away. What a sticky mess. Used a wipe and bam it was gone and no sticky residue.
Last, but definitely not least…. Laundry Soap!
Now, this may not pertain to all moms, but I like to cloth diaper. It was always such a pain though to find a safe detergent that I could use that was compatible with my inserts and covers. Plus, my youngest breaks out with eczema here and there, so a natural soap is important. Finding something that fit both of these categories and actually cleaned was difficult.
Dapple cut through the poopy diapers, cleaned the clothes, and didn’t make Remy’s eczema act up.
All of the cleaning agents are derived from vegetables, glucose and coconuts. Love it!
Overall, dapple is pretty awesome. I was so excited to see that when they say it’s safe for babies and children….they mean it! It’s just not a labeling scheme to get you to buy. They taking quality ingredients and make something great for families.
I’d recommend Dapple 100%!
