Recently I have been exploring the world of chemical-free cleaning in search of products that will be safer for my family and better for the environment. I was very pleased when I learned about e-cloth, and I was even more pleased when I saw their line of Baby Care products! I was quick to select the 13Pc chemical-free and reusable Hand & Face Cleaning Kit. The kit comes with ten hand & face cloth wipes, one carry bag, one water spray bottle and one laundry bag.
These soft, hand & face cloth wipes are my new top choice for cleaning sticky hands and faces using just water after snack-time, mealtime, park play, play dates, preschool, shopping and more! My littles really gave these chemical-free cleaning cloths a workout by stockpiling food residue on their hands and faces, the high chair, table and island countertop! With wet paper towels (my former go-to method in the kitchen), it seems like the mess is just displaced until you swoop it up just right after multiple passes over the same area.
My main example of a mess I clean? When I let my 14 month old feed himself his peanut butter sandwich bites, he ends up with PB all over his face, hands, high chair, plate and sippy cup. Cleaning peanut butter off of those surfaces requires more elbow grease than I prefer after a full morning of activities and lunch, so by the end of that meal I’m ready to whisk my babes up the stairs for story time so we can unwind. The last thing I want to do is take twice as long to clean up, so I’m thrilled to have the grippy but smooth Hand & Face Cloth Wipes now! I can swipe up the peanut buttery mess in one fell swoop and move on with our day! Don’t believe me? Just watch this video below to see my first dry-run in this scenario. Or should I say peanut buttery run?
Aside from putting these cloth wipes to the test as shown in the second video above, so far we have had these companion cloths along with us at a couple outdoor malls, on a Target run, at the kids’ shoe store, in the kids’ center at the fitness facility and more. But I’m sure you don’t want to sit here all day watching videos of my kiddos use the e-cloth Hand & Face Cleaning Kit, so I spared you those extra stills and frames. 😉
The kits’ carry bag is a convenient and stylish pouch that contains the ten reusable cloth wipes, the drawstring mesh laundry bag and the water spray bottle. The carry bag comes with three different patterns to choose from making it more likely to suit one’s style! Further, I love that the carry bag has an easy-grab opening that operates kind of like pulling tissues out of a tissue box. Also, there is a magnetic flap at the top so you can add your fresh hand & face cloth wipes after washing them or retrieve them from the top for use.
Conveniently, the water spray bottle slides out of a mesh side pouch for quick-on-the-draw action. Then when you are ready to put your dirty cloth wipes away, you can drop the wipes in the drawstring mesh laundry bag and slip that bag back in the wide compartment on the back of the bag. With a little loop for carrying, theHand & Face Cleaning Kit is really perfect for on-the-go!
Chemical-Free & Environmentally Friendly
Needless to say, now that we are using fewer paper towels we are making our home more environmentally friendly! Of course, I thought the hardest person to convince would be my questioning husband who prefers to use paper towels mostly for the single-use factor. But I was shocked when he tested a Hand & Face Cloth Wipe for the first time and said “they really DO work!” with surprise in his voice. That only took him one use to arrive at that conclusion! 😉 He’s quite the skeptic about everything–very much a see-it-to-believe-it type–and yet he sees the power behind these little lightweight cloths! Yes, my husband has seen that there is no need to pull out a chemical-laden wipe to sterilize the surfaces our kids touch and eat on every day, all day.
Our littles are getting so big, but we still get to protect them for awhile as their parents. Thankfully, a chemical-free e-cloth cleaning with just water protects our sweet things. According to the Children’s Environmental Health Network, reducing our use of harmful chemicals around our offspring can help us prevent them from getting illnesses, developmental disorders and even some forms of cancer. How shocking! Now there’s a new go-to cleaning choice in this house–and it’s chemical-free! For more info from the Baby Care by e-cloth Research Center, click here.
How Do They Work?
Want to know how these products work so well? I’ll leave it to e-cloth to tell you: “e-cloths clean with just water. They neither contain chemicals nor use them–it is the 3.1 million fibers per sq. inch that do the work. By combining e-cloth’s unique fiber technology with water, they break up and hold grime and bacteria, which normal cloths and wipes leave behind.” e-cloths are proven to remove over 99% of bacteria, including E. coli and Listeria, from hard surfaces using only water.
While disposable wet wipes are convenient, so are e-cloth Hand & Face Cloth Wipes. The durable cloth wipes come with a 100 wash guarantee, so that’s a lot of uses! And with the e-cloth products, I know I’m not spreading germs to other surfaces or exposing my children to high and low levels of chemicals in my life space. What about your life space, you ask?
According to the World Health Organization:
“Acute and chronic, high and low-level exposures to chemicals in the environment of children may cause functional and organic damage.”
If you’re interested in reducing you and your family’s exposure to harmful chemicals, I encourage you look into e-cloth’s product line at http://www.ecloth.com and to sign up for e-cloth’s e-mail list.
