Dapple Surface & Toy Cleaner Review & Giveaway

What two words go together better than mess and baby? The words mess and baby friendly surface cleaner! When you're at the supermarket, what household cleaner do you typically reach for? Did you know that most cleaners aren't baby friendly? Seems like a no brainer right? Well, what if you're actually wiping down your babies toys, high chairs, and other things they constantly touch with a product that may not be good for your child? Before I discovered Dapple, I was cleaning everything with Clorex wipes and Windex Multi Surface. Dapple has changed the way I clean Baby A's belongings, so let me tell you all about it so you can change the way you clean your little ones things too.

Dapple is a company that focuses on baby safe cleaning products so that moms like you and I can feel better about what our little ones touch, use, and play with. Dapple was created by using the input of Chemists who are experts in green technology and pediatricians with our little ones best interest at heart. Dapple supplies us with baby safe surface cleaners, dishwasher soap, laundry detergent, pacifier wipes, and other things that make our life a little bit simpler! Dapple is USA made and does not test their products on animals!

I was lucky enough to have the opportunity to test out Dapple's Surface Cleaner for Highchairs, Toys & More. Esthetically, Dapple is adorable, if a household cleaner can be such a thing. It comes in a clear bottle with a brightly colored label that reminds me of a something that would be in the baby section. Dapple, kudos to creating such a cute cleaning product!

Upon receiving the product to test out I will admit that I was a little nervous! I'm so set in my ways of Clorex wipes and Windex that I left it sitting on my kitchen counter for a couple of days, letting it taunt me into trying something new. Finally, I gathered my courage after a particularly sticky baby food mess compliments of Baby A and decided to dive head first. I sprayed the high chair a couple of times and wiped it clean. I was amazed at how clean the high chair was! It wasn't left sticky, there wasn't a residue, and it pretty much sparkled.

After having such a sparkly high chair, I was hooked and needed to clean more! I moved on to Baby A's Mickey Mouse Clubhouse Car that he had gotten cake on at his Birthday Photo Shoot. This time, I tested the surface cleaner by spraying it on the paper towel first. I then cleaned Baby A's Mickey Car and it wiped the cake off perfectly! It didn't sparkle, but I take it it was just because of the type of plastic on the car!

Did wonders right? I have used this surface cleaner even on ordinary household things such as counter tops and door knobs and it has worked great!!
Overall: I am very pleased with the Dapple Surface Cleaner and will continue to use it on a daily basis! It cleaned to a shine and it got rid of stickiness and didn't leave a residue. I feel great about it being baby safe and I love that I don't have to worry about it being harmful if I clean Baby A's toys with it. A downfall for me (which may be an absolute plus for some people) is that the scent of this surface cleaner is lavender. I, unlike many of the worlds population, am not a fan of lavender and can only handle it in small doses. Thankfully, it in the form of a household cleaner does not bother me however I would love if Dapple would make an alternate scent!
