Finally, a way to get those nasty bottles clean!

All of the moms out there or anyone who has had to clean bottles has experienced bottle funk at one time or another. Those blasted bottles just never seem to get clean, no matter how much you scrub, soak, and run them through the dishwasher. The worst part is when you've washed them, run them through the dishwasher, and then washed them again and though they LOOK clean they still smell like old socks.

Finally there is a product that is made to solve just that problem! Dapple is the first dish washing detergent formulated just for stinky icky baby messes, and the coolest part is its all natural! You know I was actually pretty skeptical about how Dapple would work. Though I have been using all natural dish washing detergents for some time, I've rarely found anything that really gets my bottles and sippy cups clean, past either boiling them and reboiling them, or using the dreaded bleach method which has always made me incredibly nervous. I have done it in the past, but only in severely icky, smelly, or mold circumstances.

Dapple on the other hand has been my new knight in shining armor when it comes to bottle and sippy cup odors. I almost hate to admit this to you guys, but I am the ultimate in lazy mommies! I do not like to boil our bottles or sippies as it just takes too much time. What little free time I have I don't really enjoy spending standing over a boiling pot of bottles. heh. Dapple seems to do as good of a job as boiling the bottles and all I have to do is wash my baby items the same way I always would, in the dishwasher.

Dapple is pretty neato as not only is it made with natural enzymes, yes I know I mentioned that earlier, but it's designed specifically to attack the common proteins in baby foods. Especially the milk proteins, the usual culprit in those icky odors. Dapple comes in a dish washing detergent powder and a dish soap great for those who still use that medieval form of washing, ie hand washing. heh. Ok, I'm not that lazy as I do actually hand wash stuff too.

The only drawback to Dapple is, unless your lucky enough to live close to one of the stores that stocks it, you normally have to order it online to get some for yourself. Though truthfully its nice not to have to drive to the grocery store anyways, as honestly I try to avoid driving anywhere I don't have to with the cost of gas lately!

You can buy Dapple directly from their website or use the store locater to find a store near you. Diapers.com carries Dapple as well!

I have two Dapple gift packs to give away to two lucky winners! Included will be one bottle of the dish washing liquid and a box of the dish washing detergent!

well i like that they don't use the harsh chemicals but am not a believer that they will clean those icky sippy cups. I hand wash, not by choice and I'll tell you trying to get the bottom of those cups after a little juice film ends up in there is no easy task.
