I have to admit that I have not known about Messy Bessy brand of household cleaning products until I talked to Jane Ang-Tanpinco, owner of Little Bundles Baby Shoppe–an online shop based in Bacolod City. She is the former classmate of my husband and I am helping promote her shop.
Looking at the Messy Bessy products, I thought of trying out the Messy Baby Liquid Laundry Detergent and the Messy Baby Toy and Surface Cleaner. Here’s my experience.
Messy Baby Liquid Laundry Detergent
I had been using cloth diapers on my youngest daughter for a couple of months now. While I do not really find it very tedious to maintain using cloth diapers because I just soak them and rinse, the rinsing part has been getting to me. With the powdered detergent that I use, I have to rinse six times just to remove the suds.
Yet even after the sixth, I still feel that there is still some residue left. But I am so tired to rinse some more. I feel that my fingers have become larger because of the wringing and well, I kinda feel bad with the amount of water that I use every day just for the cloth diapers.
To try out the Messy Baby Liquid Laundry Detergent, I used about 1 3/4 caps (as in the bottle cap) of the liquid diluted in water. I soaked four sets of cloth diapers (shells + inserts) for about three hours. I believe the soaking time can be shorter but since I had something else to do, it took me three hours to rinse it.
When I first soaked the items, I thought that it wasn’t so sudsy. But I did not add any more detergent. I just let it be because I just followed instructions. But I was surprised when I rinsed the diapers that they felt, looked, and smelled clean even if I used only so little soap. And the best thing is, after two rounds of rinsing, they were already good to hang to dry. However, just make sure, I gave it another rinse. The diapers smelled good and there was no soapy residue.
I love it! I finished much faster this time than when I used to rinse so many times! And I wasn’t so tired and frustrated afterwards and had more time for my baby as well as cleaning other baby items. I like the fact that it is so safe yet so strong! A highly recommended!
Note: For best results, rinse your soiled cloth diapers in water once before soaking.
Messy Baby Toy and Surface Cleaner
At first, I was not convinced with this product. I thought, I could just use alcohol when cleaning. But when I saw that it could be used on stuffed toys, I was convinced. I sprayed on my kids’ stuffed toys and pillows and air dried them after. When dry, the items smelled so fresh. Not to mention that the room smelled good, too.
