The Secret to My Modern Parenthood
Not too long ago, I blogged about ‘The 3 Most Tiring Parts of Being a Stay At Home Mom’. I mentioned house chores as the most tiring and included the picture below:
I recently got myself a whole bunch of new products from KAO along with their guidebook titled “The Secret to My Modern Parenthood”, which contains 12 chapters covering topics and home care tips from Japan ranging from understanding babies, knowing the importance of fatherhood, family budgeting, environmental hygiene, methods to cleaning household items to testimonials from doctors, parents, and experts, plus much more.
After going through that guidebook, I came to realise that I am constantly exhausted because I am doing things the old fashion way and not delegating the household chores to others. I am single handedly trying to keep the house in order and it is taking a toll on me. I need to learn to delegate house chores and get every member of the family involved.
These products is the solution for a busy mom like me.
One of the products that caught my eyes is the Magiclean WIPER that claims to wipe and mop effortlessly and efficiently.
I quickly took it out and assembled it. Assembling it is as easy as A,B,C as all I needed to do was connect them together.
The Magiclean WIPER can be used with dry and wet sheet. I tested the dry sheet first. I wiped the floor in the music room and to my delight; its ultra-slim head easily cleans the narrow space between the piano and the floor.
It is very light and traps dust efficiently that I can clean with just one hand! The soft cushion head makes it so much easier to trap dust. I just need to tap the wiper on the dust and it’s done!
I proceeded to wipe the bedroom and oh my, look at the amount of hair it traps!
I just swept and mopped the room the old-fashioned way yesterday but look how dirty it is now! Yet this is only a small part of the room. I have not even wiped the entire floor!
Old fashion way of sweeping with broom only helps to ‘transfer’ dirt from one place to another with lots of fly-away dust and hair along the way. Wiping with this dry sheet traps dust and hair effectively, locking them securely onto the sheet ensuring a more thorough cleaning.
I was anxious to try the wet wipes so I switched to the wet sheet and proceeded to the kitchen. My diaper boy was eager to help.
Oh my goodness! Can you see the difference? My kitchen floor has been THAT dirty? This wet sheet works wonders and the best part is the floor does not even feel sticky after mopping
By the way, Ayden is wearing the super soft and comfortable Merries diaper in the picture above.
I complained about diaper rash not too long ago and the nice people from KAO presented Ayden with Merries Super Premium Tape diapers, the No.1 diaper brand in Japan hoping that he’ll no longer suffer from diaper rash and discomfort. He has been wearing this for some time now and is loving it very much as he no longer suffers from red bottom.
All Merries diapers come with a comprehensive ventilation layer.
The tiny holes on the surface are big enough to allow gases such as water vapour to be discharged, yet tiny enough to prevent liquids like pee to seep through hence reducing the moisture level in the diaper interior. Superb stuff!
Back to house chores, I am learning to delegate tasks so the first thing after Ethan returned from school, I told him to soak his uniform.
Ethan poured some Attack Liquid Detergent Plus Softener onto the sweat stain on his collar before soaking his white uniform. The detergent penetrates deeply into the fabric making cleaning the stubborn stains on his collar so much easier.
You know how important it is to have good conditioner to keep our hair soft, smooth and manageable? It is exactly the same with our clothes. This Attack Liquid Detergent is formulated with fabric softener hence our clothes are clean, soft and smooth after each which helps greatly when ironing. Ironing clothes has never been easier!
Attack detergent is also available in powder form.
I am lucky to be petite :) It gives me a solid excuse not to clean the aircond or anything above 5 feet. The Daddy reluctantly helps but always ends up sneezing as he has sensitive nose.
I found this Handy Duster amongst the items given by KAO.
This Handy Duster is extendable up to 95cm so it can clean near and low places up to hard to reach and high places. The high absorption fibres catch dust effectively ensuring no fly away dust while cleaning.
Without the Handy Duster, the Daddy always covers himself while cleaning to protect against fly away dust. With his new Magiclean Wiper, he can confidently clean without fearing it will affect his sensitive nose.
Since the handle is extendable and the head is bendable for better flexibility, I can use it to clean the aircond and other high places myself too.
Look at the pile of dust collected from my aircond! :O The good thing is the dust is trapped nicely within the high absorption fibres ensuring no fly away dust.
KAO has been very generous to me and my family.
Now, you too can be part of their generosity as they are holding a home makeover contest titled “Parenthood Home Makeover”.
You stand to win a home makeover and KAO products worth up to RM30,000! All you need to do to join is purchase RM38 worth of Magiclean/Attack products and minimum 1 pack Merries diaper and head on to their website to participate: http://www.kao.com/my/my-modern-parenthood/
Contest runs from 2 May to 31 July 2016 so hurry!
Life is much easier when everyone plays their part and not rely solely on me to keep the house in order. Having the correct tools that transforms the way I clean helps tremendously too.
The Daddy now happily helps with the house chores and the kids. He prepares and tucks the kids to bed every night giving me ample of me time after a chaotic day tending to the kids.
It is heartwarming to see the father and sons bonding before bedtime.
A happy mom makes a happy family
