A Merry Fluffy Christmas Giveaway

Merry Fluffy Christmas Giveaway #3, Cuties with Cloth Booties Congo – Kickin’ Creations, KK Designs & Jaebugs and Khlobears (CLOSED 12/5)


cloth diaper giveaways

The third of my five Merry Fluffy Christmas Event giveaways is courtesy of one of my favorite Hyenacart groups, the Cuties with Cloth Booties Congo.  A congo is a conglomeration of WAHMs, and CWCB is made up of more than two dozen talented ladies.  The cuties congo stocks on the 15th of every month, and they often have a collaboration where several sellers get together to make up a package of items that work together!

First up is a full size package of Kickin’ Creations Stink be Gone All Purpose Pail Deodorizer.  In September, I reviewed Kickin’ Creations detergent, pail powder and baby leggings and I’ll tell you, the powder is fantastic!!  It smells great, and knocks out diaper stink without just making dirty diapers smell like flowery dirty diapers.

You can use the pail powder in your diaper pail, garbage can, sprinkled on the carpet, or in a cute dish as an air freshener.  The winner of this package will receive an approximately 10 ounce package of Apple Cinnamon Scent deodorizing powder.

Next is a KK Designs shirt with a gender neutral monkey design.  It’s a white, short sleeved shirt in size 18 months, but even if you don’t have a little monkey in this size, this would make a great gift!
slipper shoes
Lastly, these cute Jaebugs and Khlobears slipper shoes in a size large (5 1/2 inch outer sole) that match the shirt wonderfully! 
I haven’t had the pleasure of trying JB&KB slipper shoes myself, but they are adorable!  They are lined with a brown minky inner for softness and warmth, they feature elastic in the heels for a secure fit, and corduroy soles for durability.
The retail value of this package is $25.50.

Baby Legs Deodorizers Detergents Giveaway Made in the USA Review WAHM made

Kickin’ Creations Review & Giveaway (CLOSED 9/21)


kickin creations
I originally contacted Mandy of Kickin’ Creations to buy some wool dryer balls.  As it turned out, she was not happy with the new method she was trying (at the time) for making them, and didn’t want to sell any to me until she was pleased with how they ended up.
We got to chatting and I agreed to review her cloth diaper safe laundry detergent, deodorizer powder (pail powder) and baby legs.  (She also sells sugar scrubs, burp cloths and more!)

Kickin’ Creations items are normally shipped in nice, heat-sealed bags.  Since mine were samples, they were shipped in regular baggies.

I received the detergent and pail powder, both in Wild Cherry Blossom scent.  Other scent options include: Sweet Pea & Jasmine, Lavender Essential Oil, Apple Cinnamon, Fresh Linen and Unscented.
cloth diapers
I’ve had such a hard time with detergent, that I was really surprised and impressed by Kickin’ Creations.  Like the other scented detergents I’ve used, the scent was very strong.  I could smell it as soon as I opened my mailbox!  I’m a little more sensitive to smells than others, so I put the detergent and pail powder in an OXO container for storage.  Like that, it made my laundry room smell great!
cloth diaper safe products
Each bag of detergent contains up to 70 wash loads, and sells for $15.00 plus $4.95 shipping.  A half-batch sample pack sells for $8.00 plus shipping.  The instructions are to use 1-2 tablespoons (3 to soak, less per load for an HE machine.) 
kickin creations
The first time I used it, I used a little more than I needed to.  After that, I used a little bit less, and while the laundry room smelled great while washing, the diapers rinsed clean.  When they were finished, they had a faint scent, but just smelled clean.  I used the whole bag (it lasted at least a week, I should have kept track!) and it worked wonderfully.
I use a Planet Wise large hanging wet bag as a pail, and don’t have a lot of stink issues.  However, since I’ve started washing every other day, things get a little…eh…”gamey” by wash day.  The Stink Be Gone All Purpose Deodorizer Powder is available in the same scents as the detergent, and a 10 ounce package sells for $5.00 plus shipping. 
If you used it in a shaker bottle (relabeled for safety!) like an empty baby powder or spice container, it would be very easy to sprinkle a bit in your diaper pail or trash can. I just shook a little bit out of the bag onto the diapers as I added them to the pail & noticed some stink.  It really did a good job of neutralizing the odor.  My laundry room (where I keep my pail!) smelled fresh, not like flowery dirty diapers, hee hee.
baby legs
Last up are the baby legs.  You really have to cut me some slack on my pictures.  Lately, trying to photograph my son feels like trying to photograph a squirrel on redbull.

baby legs

The pair I received are navy blue, and like other WAHM baby legs, they are made from knee socks.

Mandy also makes a “Tiny Legs” version of baby legs for 0-3 month olds.  They sell for about $5.00 plus shipping.

I am looking forward to using these when the weather gets cooler and he gets that chilly gap between socks and pants!
