Clever Relish WipesWraps Review


What kinds of things have you done to try and hide those plain old wipies tubs? I hate having this plain ole tub just sitting around, no style no color just boom there are the wipes! Well guess what? Clever Relish has discovered a neat way to hide those unsightly tubs!



Each wrap is made up a very soft and stretchy material. WipesWrapsTM were designed to best fit the leading brand baby wipe tubs. A perfectly snug fit is not guaranteed with all baby wipe tubs, but WipesWrapsTM fit the most popular brand like a glove. Proudly Made in the USA. Hand-wash cold.

I have found that each wrap seems to fit Huggies, Pampers and the Walmart brand containers. These specific containers are all made the same with almost the same size.

So you have your plain ole wipes box



You take this neat cloth wipes cover and stretch it over the top of the wipes box


The lid cover is attached to the rest in all one piece which is great so you don't lose an extra piece.

Close the lid and perfecto!


There are tons of different designs great for every room of the house! You do not have to only use for the baby room!

A lot of people now leave a box of wipes in the bathroom for when the toilet paper just isn't enough. Or another great use is in an office. They have elegant designs which would be perfect in that home office. Wipes are not just for babies anymore!

Clever Wraps has really done a great job. Each one of these is put together quite nicely. There are no holes in the stitching or sewing malfunctions. We stretched and pulled on the material and it seemed to all go right back to it's original shape when we let go.

Clever Relish has cute packaging for these wraps:


Each wrap costs $14.95 and is well worth every penny!

We love Clever Relish Wraps!


Some friends of ours with older children came over one night and commented on the cute box. When I opened the box and showed them it was wipes they made the comment that they wished these had of been around when their kids were little.

I would love to see these in Babies R Us or Buy Buy Baby someday!



Where it all began
CleverRelish was founded in by Jill Carreiro, an engineer, salesperson, lifelong tinkerer and thankful momma to three little ones ranging from 3 to 6 years old. That's nearly SIX straight years of diaper changing! Six years of looking at the same ugly plastic baby wipes tub at every diaper change.

Then one day she had an "aha" moment: Why don't we just make it a part of the decor!


These would make great baby shower gifts! Forget giving just a pack of wipes, why not Wrap it?! Every mom would love to one these, in my opinion! Great to add to all d├ęcor! These would even make a great house warming gift!

Chew Beads Review








The idea for Chewbeads began in 2009 shortly after the birth of my son. Like most babies, he loved to put everything in his mouth and my necklaces were a favorite. Like most moms, I didn't feel comfortable letting him chew on them, with concern that they might break or have unwanted chemicals. As a veteran of the fashion industry, I had an amazing collection of necklaces and bracelets, so with those as my inspiration, I set out to create soft, non-toxic jewelry, which was colorful, chic and, above all else safe. Hence, Chewbeads!

Beads are made with 100% silicone (similar to pacifiers & nipples)
Soft on babies gums and emerging teeth
Easily cleaned with dish soap & water, also dishwasher safe!
No BPA, PVC, Phthalates, Cadmium, or Lead
Necklaces have a breakaway clasp for added safety
Necklaces are a great sensory tool to help your baby focus while nursing
Bracelets are a colorful reminder of which side you've just nursed


I have to say that Chew Beads are a great invention. I have 6 kids and would have loved to have had these with the other kids. With my older kids my necklaces, bracelets and earings were constantly being licked on and chewed on. The baby loves this pretty necklace so much that she even knows how to wear it herself. She is almost 10 months and just cut her first 2 teeth. Chew Beads were such a teething blessing as she suffered a lot with getting hers. Each bead is a solid but chewy ball of silicone. The baby actually wore these to our last trip to Sams club and the cashier thought as so cute that she had some beads. I know these are meant for the mommy to wear but she takes them away from me and puts them on herself. They are quite long so I would not recommend doing this with out supervision.

I love how easy to wash these are. I can run them under water with a little soap and lay out to dry. The string takes a little bit to dry off but if you put them in the freezer for just a bit that is also a great help on their teeth. The Chew Beads are great for dressing down, in just a pair of jeans and tshirt or even to dress up for church. There are so many colors to choose from that you can't go wrong. Buy 1 to match a bunch or buy 1 for each outfit! These cost $29.50 each.

Chew Beads carries bracelets and necklaces for the teething little ones.

Each bead has a knot tied between them. The only issue I had with this was that the beads can move over the knots pretty easy so I had to keep putting them back in the correct spot. The clasp is perfect. If your child pulls too hard they are not going to break the necklace it will just pull apart and then you can put back together.


I look forward to possibly getting a bracelet from Chew Beads in the future. If I do I will definitely let you all know how that goes!

I received this one necklace to test and post my honest review.

Borax a Purex laundry solution


Does your laundry detergent not quite cut it sometimes? 20 Mule Team Borax increases your detergents cleaning power and controls odors to give you fresh, clean laundry!


My house has sporty children and a couple fishers. We constantly have some stinky smells that radiate in our laundry room. Between football, cheerleading and that nasty fish smell we loved the Borax boost.

One of my favorite smells is the laundry isle at the super market. But we can only use Purex and Era in our house because of my sons sensitive skin. We tried all detergents and landed on Purex because of its gentle scent but great laundry cleaning qualities!

Borax was not only great for the laundry boost but was great for animal and child spills. With a dog, 2 cats, 6 kids and a guinea pig our carpets take a beating also. It was great to mix with a little water and scrub on the spots and bye bye stain!

I definitely recommend 20 Mule Team Borax! It takes the hard work our of my daily Mommy choirs!

(great for furniture touch ups also)

•Where can I get Borax?
Almost all super markets carry Borax. Our Walmart had it, which makes for easy buying!

This will be having a giveaway with 3 winners very soon! Keep watching!

I am a Purex Insider and received 1 box of Borax to test and post my honest review.

Woolzies dryer Balls Review






These dryer balls are a neat invention. It is definately a money saver. Each box of WOOLZIES contains 6 handmade woolen dryer balls. The cost per box is $34.95 with FREE SHIPPING anywhere in the USA including Alaska and Hawaii. These are $34.95 for 1000 dries or more. A box of dryer sheets usually have around 45 sheets a box which costs around $5-7 a box. So if you do that math boxes of dryer sheets for a 1000 dries would cost around $133. Do you see the savings?? With a family of 8 at this moment this is a great savings. Great for the enviroment also. So if you are doing things green this is the way to go.

Woolzies are pure handmade New Zealand wool dryer balls that soften your laundry naturally without any of the chemicals of conventional fabric softeners. Unlike the plastic dryer balls, they are PVC free and won't fall apart or melt on you. Woolzies save time and energy by cutting down on drying time by an average of 25% per load. They also help reduce static and wrinkles.

Use Woolzies to snuggle up with naturally downy soft laundry that's completely free of harmful chemicals. Woolzies are also hypo-allergenic and totally safe for people with wool sensitivities as they will not shed onto your laundry.

Unlike even natural dryer sheets and liquid fabric softeners, Woolzies last for 1,000 loads and are therefore extremely eco friendly. So why risk your health and waste your money with regular fabric softeners when you can save time, energy and money with all natural pure Woolzies!


Soft By Nature, Inc. is a small family owned company nestled in the picturesque Hudson Valley region of Southern New York State. Our mission is straight-forward; we intend to pass down this earth to our children in the same beautiful condition that we received it from our parents. We accomplish this by developing all natural eco friendly products and sharing them with our fellow citizens.

In this spirit, we are very proud to present WOOLZIES®, The All Natural Dryer Ball Set. This set of six handmade pure wool dryer balls are special in several ways. They deliver the same benefits for laundry as conventional fabric softeners WITHOUT all the nasty chemicals. They save everyone a lot of money by eliminating the need to continuously spend on fabric softener liquid and sheets. They cut down on the time it takes to dry a typical load by at least 25% thereby saving everyone even more money and cutting down on fossil fuel usage. Finally, being as that they are handmade in the democratic republic of Nepal, they provide a steady source of income to the desperately needy women of that developing nation.

So smile when you purchase a set of WOOLZIES®, because you know you're helping to make the world a more pleasant place for yourself, your family and future generations!

Awesome Wexy Bags Review







We used these bags to even hold Mayo for my oldest sons sandwich. They are nice and heavy duty bags. No leaking! These are BPA free and biodegradable. There are 4 monster designs in each box of 28. They are also made right here in the USA so that is a plus also.

Inspired by kids and created by moms, WEXY snack bags are the perfect way to change the very image of "healthy" food for your kids. Motivated by their desire to restore natural childhood fun to snack time, Carie and Tracey created WEXY monsters with their own children driving their vision. They want to help our earth, too. That's why WEXY snack bags are as good to the globe (eco-friendly) as they are to your child's body. With their commitment to organic foods and practices, Tracey and Carie believe that sustaining our health means sustaining the earth as well. WEXY bags are biodegradable, BPA Free, disposable, recyclable, and reusable.


My kids are not the "awe it's so cute and soft" type kids, so these designs were fun for them! Sammy and Dusty the ocean and surf ones are so fuzzy. The colors of the monsters are also definately kid friendly.

We take sandwiches and snacks with us every time we go anywhere, to save on money. With 6 kids in the house it adds up. We only have 4 washable sandwich bags so the rest of the stuff usually gets packed in baggies. I don't really like that as it makes more trash and also it doesn't break down easy. Yesterday we went on a field trip and we got to try out these baggies. My kids all picked their own design that they liked so they knew which items were theirs. My little girlie girl picked this one. Bailey the bubble maker.
