Happy Birthday to me

Posted in 'General' on December 1, 2008, 12:11 am

Well today marks Twinkle Lily's anniversary of being open 1 year! Can't believe I've made it, it's certainly been a really good year and 2009 will be even better with lots more planned.

I have a special planned for each week of December, week 1 is 15% off all items.

Little Innoscents organic baby skincare range has also gone live, I've had a smell of everything and they are just devine! You can check them out at http://www.twinklelily.com/index.php?mod=Shop&file=Index&cat=4

Coming soon are our Organic Side Snapping Wool Covers, not sure on release date as they are in testing phase. 

They are divine to the touch, I've never felt wool so soft and beautiful.

Caring for your nappies

Posted in 'General' on December 4, 2008, 12:14 am

Caring for your cloth nappies

I always assume washing modern cloth nappies will come easy to people but I have been doing the modern cloth nappy thing for over 3 years now and it's become second nature for me.

I'd say a good 90% of people still don't know or haven't heard about modern cloth nappies and would see it as hard and/or extra work with soaking and bleaching.

You will be surprised that today's modern cloth nappies ( I call them new generation nappies) do not need to be soaked, definitely do not need to be bleached and in fact uses 1/2 to 1/4 scoop of your normal detergent (much less than a normal load).

The method used is called "dry pail". To put simply once cloth nappy is soiled (solid matter roll/scrape into toilet) and place in a bucket or pail.

Once you are have a reasonable amount of cloth nappies that need washing, just place into your washing machine, add the specified amount of detergent (1/2-1/4 scoop of your normal full load) and turn the machine on!

To keep your nappies lasting/looking newer it is always best to line dry, however in our current Melbourne (and other countries/states) climate it isn't always possible to have them dry in time. You will find you can do the occasional tumble dry on a very low-medium heat setting. Unfortunately I am known for my love of my tumble dryer and have used my dryer consistently in winter weather without any issues.

For more information you can visit my wash and care page on my site Wash and Care Instructions

A handy tip: Always try and wash no later than 2 days, especially when you have teething babies. Around teething, urine can become slightly more acidic than normal and if left to soak into the nappy booster may "eat" into it. 

To eliminate odours try Pail Powders

Lookey Here - GWTF!

Posted in 'New Products' on December 5, 2008, 12:15 am

I am just bursting with excitement!

I have come across these fabulous reusable cloth menstrual pads in the US. These reusable menstrual pads popped up here and there around some forums and although I thought they looked superb, I didn't think of even trying to retail a different brand other than my own.

But you know, ClothPadShop is the one stop shop for menstrual pads and I personally would like to see the store retail/manufacture the most cloth pads in the world on the one site.

GWTF padsgwtf

And I'll be the only retailer in Australia!!!

Anne who runs Go with the Flo is absolutely fabulous to deal with and I look forward to sharing these wonderful professionally made reusable cloth pads with you!

Christmas Closeure

Posted in 'General' on December 20, 2008, 12:19 am

It's that time of the year where we should be having holidays, but are we?

Twinkle Lily will be taking a break from Monday 22nd December until Monday January 5th. Orders are still able to be placed through website, however it is only for remaining stock and will not get processed until Monday 5th January 2009.

So until then pads have been reduced, and 15% off all other items.

That said, I will still be hard at work! My new cloth nappies are coming out some time in January and I hope to make it on the day we re-open.

These are stunning nappies, all overlocked with maxilock swirls in a gorgeous array of prints.

They are fitted in 3 different sizes, S, M and L.

Our original design is still with us and not going anywhere, the only changes there are we are adding a 3 different size system ie, S, M and L and the hard work of sewing will be contracted out to a local seamstress.

Plus our pads are having a facelift! We've gotten some excellent feedback on our new smallsies and biggsies, they have a slightly longer wingspan so giving you a slightly wider crotch offering more protection.

Merry Christmas to everyone and a Very Happy New Year

Warmest wishes

Katerina
