WAHM Day 3 – Wee Essentials

Welcome to day 3 of our 10 day long spotlight on all our great WAHM’s. Here at Top to Bottom Baby Boutique we pride ourselves on working with WAHM’s and helping them to spread the love for their products. What better way to spread the love than to give something away! We’re also going to have a 5% discount on each of our WAHM products through October 10th. (no code necessary)
Meet our third WAHM run business:
image 
The Mom Behind it All: Candice Mangum

Tell us about yourself: “I actually got started in this business quite by accident.  I was making soap to sell at craft fairs and at the same time, I had just started cloth diapering my first son, who was 2.  I had some extra soap left over after pouring it in the molds, and threw the extra in an empty container.  I realized I could cut them in bits for wipe solution cubes, and when they didn't sell at the craft fairs, I put them on
etsy just to fill up my shop.  My first sale on Etsy was those soap bits! 
Since then, I've also designed my own cloth menstrual pad line, incorporating what I thought was the best of all the n851935787_972862_9215other lines I've purchased in the past, and then several  other lines of washable, reusable items. My biggest seller is my soap bit line, but I also sell many other lines dedicated to all things cloth - cloth wipes, wet bags, wool wash bars, lanolin, cloth menstrual pads and my popular Ultrathin panty liners, cloth nursing pads, and more!  It's fun, and the variety keeps things interesting!

As a business, I know my primary goal should be to make money, and that's certainly one of my goals. ;)  But more than anything, I'd like to share my products with others because I know they have raised my quality of life while saving money.  Reusable products, like my menstrual pads, are more comfortable, while being free of chemicals I have found have had negative side effects on my body and my children's bodies.  If I can convince someone to switch to a cloth, reusable product rather than use a disposable product - even if they go somewhere else to buy it - I have met my goal!”

I store my wipes in an old disposable wipe box and keep water in a pump pot

Marissa said...

I like to use a spray bottle with wipe solution in it, and spray the wipes before wiping my little one's bum. So far I have been mixing water with a bit of baby soap, but I am about to go and try out the wee cubes I got as a sample with the diapers I ordered. I am very excited to try the cubes out!

Kari Lou said...

I am not using cloth wipes right now. But I think thats only because I have a few packs of regular disposable wipes that need to get used. I will have to try cloth wipes when I use them all up!

I've never used cloth diaper before. I think because I had 3 in diapers and now that I'm done to 2 in diapers and one of them is currently training, I'm ready to make a change!

russshan2005@yahoo.com

N. said...

I love my cloth wipes. I have both regular washcloths and wipes I made out of old baby blankets. I keep a wipes warmer on the change table so that they're always moist and ready to go. I refil every other day so that they don't get gross. I tried homemade wipes solution, but it gave my little bub a rash. Hoping to try something new!

I actually use washcloths for my cloth wipes and usually just use a spray bottle of water. Occasionally I will feel not lazy and mix some baby soap and a little oil in there then right in the pail they go!

I use cloth wipes for diaper changes and keep them in a wipes warmer with solution.
I also have another set of wipes that I keep in the kitchen for easy cleanup of sticky/messy little hands and faces.
