We’ve been asked a lot about cloth nappies by parents and parents-to-be who are curious, fascinated and sometimes amazed that cloth nappies even exist in their current modern form. Yes they do, and they are a million miles away from the old terry squares steeping in a bucket! These days, thanks to modern technology, reusable cloth nappies go on just like disposables, keep your baby dry and protected, they wash and dry really well and look far cuter than their disposable counterparts.
There is a growing population of parents who have done their research and are choosing to use cloth nappies for lots of different reasons – environmental concerns about the amount of disposables they use, financial reasons as cloth nappies are a lot cheaper in the long run, and for general health reasons as cloth nappies don’t contain any chemicals or toxins. It’s a win-win for your pocket and the environment.
Once you start your research you may feel a little overwhelmed with the amount of choice out there and with all of the terminology – it’s like learning a new language! To make it a little easier to get through the jargon, there are some basic things you need to know – there are a few different styles and sizes you can use and there are a few different materials too. After that its just a matter of how many and what colours!!

Sonett are an amazing range of cleaning products that we are delighted to be stocking at Earthmother.
We love the delicate fragrances as well as the powerful cleaning ability - but the most amazing part is that they have worked out a way to renaturise the waste water so that it isn’t harmful to the environment. A total win win for everyone!
So in a nutshell here is why we think you should use Sonett products:
They genuinely care about the impact of their products on the environment and have spent years researching and formulating 100% biodegradable ingredients that also work exceptionally well.
They use organic and/or biodynamic ingredients in most of their products and everything is vegan and plant based.
They have great social initiatives including a foundation and working with local special needs communities to label and package their products.
Every product we have tested works brilliantly and smells amazing (unless its fragrance free)
We have found a little goes a long way so your Sonett products will last longer than you think.

I read somewhere that the biggest winners of the pandemic so far are the Amazons of the world, so the super rich are getting richer off the back of a pandemic - that has really upset me a lot.
With local, small, independent and family businesses badly affected by the impact of restrictions, we asked our followers for some recommendations so we could compile an easy list of links to where you can shop locally for quality toys to keep small businesses alive and thriving. Thanks to all of our followers for sharing their tips below:

Why is there a problem with shampoo bars and hard water?
When traditional natural soap comes into contact with the minerals in hard water it causes a chemical reaction that changes the sodium salt component in soaps into their calcium and magnesium salt counterparts, thus resulting in an insoluble white-grey residue.
