Ultimate Toilet Training Pack GIVEAWAY

If any of my readers are about to commence on the big wide world of toilet training, have I got something exciting for you today.  Baby U and Bosisto's have teamed up to put together this amazing prize pack worth $85 for one lucky Mum and toddler who are entering the scary world of TT.

My sons are now 4 and 5, so we are just past the toilet training stage (although, believe me, accidents still do happen for us), but the long hard road is still very fresh in my mind.  I have to admit I'm pretty envious of whoever wins this pack, because in the past I have bought each of the products in this great pack.  So I can say to you with confidence this is a prize that will be very well used!

One Mum will win a pack containing:

• Baby U Waterproof Sheet Protector
• Baby U Cushie Tushie
• Baby U Potette Plus
• Baby U Potette Liners 10pk
• Bosisto’s Eucalyptus Spray 200g
• Information booklets

PLUS 3 runners up will win a can of Bosisto's spray valued at $8.

Hot Cross Buns & Chocolate

I'm guilty of succumbing to commercialism.  Yes, Easter Eggs and Hot Cross Buns have been in the shops for a while now, even though Easter is not for another 2 months.  But I have to admit to a very naughty liking of Hot Cross Buns and Cream Eggs.  *Sigh* I guess I won't be going on a diet anytime soon.

And I just had to share with you a very cute poem I just came across.. Sums it up perfectly I think!

Bunnies are brown
Bunnies are white
Bunnies are always
An Easter delight.

Bunnies are cuddly
The large and the small.
But I like chocolate ones
The best of them all. (Anon)

Plus don't forget to check out my tutorial on how to make Easter Hats if you have an Easter Parade coming up, or you just want to do a fun Easter craft with your kids.

EucoFresh Laundry Powder Review & Giveaway

For those of you who don't know, I live in a house with 3 males (husband + 2 sons) plus a boxer dog (yes those are the ones that slobber - a LOT).  We also have a property maintenance/lawn mowing business.  So, as you can imagine, I do massive amounts of washing of very dirty/grass & mud encrusted/slobbery/paint covered/smelly clothing.  Plus loads of dirty greasy rags and towels from our business.  Plus washing from those 'little accidents' (and I'm talking about both ends here).  On the other hand, my sons are still young enough that I prefer something gentle enough that I don't have to worry about it irritating their skin.

I am also (probably according to my husband) a pain when it comes to buying laundry powder.  I really hate the smell of most washing powders, they are just so strong and synthetic.  I also never use fabric softener for the reason (apart from believing they really don't do anything and are just a waste of money) that they have such a strong unnatural scent.

So, to give you a quick run-down on some of the positives of the Bosisto's EucoFresh Laundry Powder:
  • NO FILLERS.  I had to put this point first.  Most brands contain insoluble fillers which remain in the fibres of your garments, meaning they can become a skin and bronchial irritant to allergy sufferers or those with sensitive skin.  No fillers also means you need to use less.
  • The only smell is that of 100% pure Bosisto's Eucalyptus Oil.  So it cleans soils from clothes without being harsh.  Heaven.
  • Grey water / septic system / garden friendly
  • Low foam so you can use it in front or top loaders, and in hot or cold water. 
  • Australian made!
So, this product pretty much ticks all the boxes for me (which is a big thing to say isn't it?).  I have been using only one scoop per wash (and you will be surprised how small the scoop is).  Even my husband's work clothes are coming out fantastically clean.

Right, enough of me.  What about you guys?  Would you like to try out the Eucofresh Laundry Powder? (However - be warned, you won't be able to go back to another brand).

I have 6 (yes that's right - 6) packs of a full-size 1.5kg box of Eucofresh laundry powder & towel valued at $30 to giveaway.  And this giveaway is one that will be used to the last drop... not put in the cupboard and forgotten because you didn't really want it anyway.

And if you can't wait and would like to try it straight away you can find it in your local Woolies store at around $8.99.  For more information about the product feel free to telephone 1800 655 841 or visit the makers at www.fgb.com.au
