Product Review: JAWS Cleaners

JAWS Just Add Water System

Just Add Water System

Just Add Water System

We recently received a JAWS – Just Add Water System Complete Home Cleaning Kit to review. JAWS uses reusable spray bottles and little cartridges of highly concentrated cleaning ingredients. You just fill the spray bottles with water and all you need to buy after investing in your first set is the cartridges of cleaning solution.

We tried all four — Shower, Hardwood, Kitchen and Glass. In terms of efficacy, these products are good. My favorite was the glass cleaner. I looked online at other reviews and I am not alone. The stuff really works. It’s way better and more effective than Windex or its generic equivalents. My mirrors are all streak-free and I hardly used any of the cleaner.

Boob Nursing Wear

Nurse in Comfort

Nurse in Comfort

We have always been big supporters of breastfeeding, for so many reasons, and every breastfeeding Mama knows that the right support makes all the difference.  Whether it be your family, workplace,  local lactation consultant, or the new Mamava Lactation Station at the airport, every little bit of encouragement counts.

A little physical support doesn’t hurt either, especially when it comes to nursing bras.  Boob Fast Food T Shirt Bras are comfortable enough to sleep in.  And like all the Boob maternity and nursing apparel, they are made with sustainable materials like organic cotton, fleece made from recycled bottles.  And they only work with factories that adhere to their strict code of conduct to ensure their workers receive a decent pay.

Well, that’s great for Mimi, but what about the rest of you?  You confessed to harboring everything from bleach to scrubbing bubbles under your kitchen sinks.  It’s time to head on over to a hazardous waste facility and drop the offenders off where they can be quietly and safely dispatched.  But now you’re left with no household cleaners and your oven’s a mess.  You could do what I do, which is nothing.  Or you could whip up a little homemade oven cleaner for just a few cents.  I got this recipe from the Mrs. Clean website
