Arm & Hammer Fruit and Vegetable Wash: Review

This is a sponsored post. Opinions, as always, are my own.

Is it just me or does it feel like “not enough” when you wash your vegetables?  I typically let water run on them, make sure that I check for any places where any dirt can hide, let them dry, pat them dry, cook them thoroughly to make sure that I didn’t miss anything.

But if the past year taught us anything is that we can’t be too careful when it comes to washing surfaces, which many times includes food.  A few years ago, I worked with someone who was extremely sick from eating vegetables without properly washing them.  He was in the hospital for a few days until the doctors could figure out what was wrong with him.  It turns out, he got sick from bacteria which, they thought, could have come from not properly washing food.

This was a few years ago, long before the age of Covid, and this situation helped me realize how important it is to keep our fruits and veggies clean.  I wash even those packages that claim “pre-washed” or “ready to eat.”  The issue here is not the washing, but what do we wash with?  I would typically just use water, as I said before, let the water run and do what it’s supposed to do.  But is this enough?

Enter Arm & Hammer Fruit and Vegetable Wash:  This is how your vegetables and fruits get washed properly.  I would not use anything but water on my food as I do not want to contaminate my food with harmful chemicals.  The Arm & Hammer Fruit and Vegetable Wash contains natural products that help eliminate pesticides, wax, and the pesky dirt that lives in your vegetables.

With this product, you can see the difference as soon as you wash your fruits and vegetables.  It is really that simple.  What about the taste?  You may ask.  I can assure you there is no taste residue.  Your fruits and vegetables will taste perfectly fine, better even, once you are done cleaning them with the Arm & Hammer Fruit & Vegetable Wash.

If you are looking to upgrade your washing technique when it comes to your produce, then you have to try this product.  It will put your mind at ease, making sure that you and your family, especially your little ones, are safe from unwanted pesticides and other chemicals.

Happy Washing!

Messy laundry? Try Biz and Kids ‘N Pets!

This post is part of the Biz Kids ‘N Pets sponsored program. I received compensation as a thank you for my participation. This post reflects my personal opinion about the product provided by the sponsors.

You probably know that in my life as a special needs consultant I constantly get questions about many different aspects of parenting and especially regarding special needs parenting. Some of those questions can be quite complex but some of them are actually quite mundane, so to speak.

One of the issues that we normally talk about is how to teach children independent skills and keep them clean, or the house clean, or their clothes clean, at the same time! I’m sure that most of you already know the answer to that: Trying to do both at the same time is nearly impossible. So what do I recommend as a specialist? Let your child experiment with independent tasks and find a good way to clean the mess. There is just no other way around it!

Of course, I try to find ways to minimize the mess, using adaptive utensils, wearing a smock, or even trying to find cleaning products that will help parents deal with the mess so that I can get to the business of promoting children’s independence. I typically recommend products and use different tips that I have learned along the way to help parents clean the mess that we leave behind.

Enter Biz and Kids ‘N Pets. I jumped at the opportunity to be able to try them myself. Like many other people, at the pandemic’s outset, we adopted a puppy from a local shelter. He is a very active Australian cattle dog that needs a lot of activity and attention. He is also prone to messes! For months (since he was adopted basically, in March), we had been looking for a product that would help us get rid of some of the stains that still remained even after the constant washing.

My beloved puppy Ozzie.

See those blankets? We are constantly washing them, but we are not always successful removing the stains. We used Biz to treat the stains, and here are the results (before and after pictures below).

What a difference! My husband also tried the Kids ‘N Pets to pretreat other stains, with similar results. These products are designed with the enzymes that are needed to remove a wide variety of stains. As they say, they don’t cut any corners with their products. These products are quality products!

So now, I have a new recommendation for the parents I work with: You can trust the effectiveness of Biz and Kids ‘N Pets. I am happy that I found this product and will continue to use it whenever needed (which is pretty often!).

Happy Washing!
