E-Cloth = A-mazing!

My latest review is for a product called E-cloth!  E-cloth is a microfiber cloth that is designed to clean surfaces with water alone.  Their slogan is “Chemical Free Cleaning” and they claim that these cloths will kill 99% of bacteria by “collecting bacteria rather than “killing bacteria”.  They offer different cloths for each part of the house and I chose the one that cleans the kitchen!

I was a little skeptical about this product at first just because I didn’t believe that a cloth could clean and kill bacteria without the use of some type of cleaner.  So I avoided cleaning some areas in my kitchen for a couple of days so I could really see this thing in action.  I started with the stovetop…

Before!

And after about 45 seconds of scrubbing…Voila!

I was really surprised at how well it cleaned the stove with no assistance from any other cleaners in less than a minute.  I did have to use a little spray to get the rest of the spots, but that’s always a really difficult area to clean.

Next, I cleaned out a cup…

I also found this task pretty simple with using the e-cloth rather than using a scrub brush.  I was pretty much able to clean out each cup with just one swipe!

Then, I tried out the e-cloth on the sink!  Here is the before…

Like I said, I didn’t clean it for a few days….And here is the after!

Bam! Look at that.  Like a brand new sink!  Beautiful!  And all done in less than a minute with just the e-cloth and water!

Then, I popped it in the washer!

And there you go…refreshed and ready to get back to work!

I really wasn’t expecting much from this product, but was surprised to see how well it did around the kitchen.  I also like using chemical free products around the house since the kids touch everything.  I don’t know if it’s a mental thing, but for certain spills and areas I feel like I would still use some type of cleaner to help with the germs.  But overall, I really liked this product and I am excited to try out the other cloths for other parts of the house!

MegaFood Review

The latest product I had the opportunity to review through the Moms Meet Blogger program is MegaFood children’s supplements!  These are vitamins in a powder form that contain no coloring, flavorings or sweeteners.  There are a few different varieties, but I tried the Kids Daily Multi, Kids Daily Immune and Kids Daily B-Centered.

I also received a tote bag and a few recipe cards or as they cleverly called them: “Vitamin Hiders”.  I like simple stuff and my kids are at a picky age so I didn’t delve too much into the recipes they suggested.

So this is interesting…you can actually log onto Megafood.com/livecams and checkout out their facility.  This is all part of their Big T Transparency initiative and it does give me a little peace of mind knowing that I can see a lot of stuff that goes on behind the scenes.

Well, let’s crack ’em open! 🙂

They basically look, feel and smell like someone took a bunch of rocks and threw them in a food processor.  These are definitely not a gimmicky, sugar-coated type of children’s vitamin.  I first added the Kids Daily B-Centered to my daughter’s juice and she said it tasted like a weird blueberry flavor and wasn’t real thrilled.

So I had to think a little bit more creatively on how to hide these supplements.  Here a couple of the ways I hid them:

Surprisingly, despite the grainy texture of the vitamins, there were no complaints and she didn’t seem to notice that I had added some extra nutrition to her snacks! I even snuck it into one of her treats!

There are actually many foods where you could hide these: applesauce, pudding, yogurt, oatmeal, etc. Note: The serving size for each of these vitamins is one scoop for children ages five and up.  Since my daughter is almost four, I only did about three-quarters of a scoop.  Overall, I really enjoyed this type of vitamin for my kids.  The chewable and liquid form of vitamins haven’t worked too well for us and I never liked all of the added and artificial ingredients to make it more appealing.  I would definitely purchase this product again for my little picky eaters!  What do you think?  How do you get your little ones to take their vitamins?

***I received this product for free from Moms Meet (momsmeet.com), May Media Group LLC, who received it directly from the manufacturer. As a Moms Meet blogger, I agree to use this product and post my honest opinion on my blog. The opinions posted are my own.
