  • Vinegar and bicarb for cleaning the house. Might take a bit more elbow grease but my children’s eczema has improved since I’ve stopped using chemicals in the house, even using a small amount of vinegar instead of fabric softener and it works brilliantly.


  • The Chux dishwand has made cleaning the dishes & cutlery before placing in the dishwasher & is perfect for getting into my nespresso milk frother!


  • Drunk elephant syrum and la la retro cream!
    It was the only thing that worked on my skin when I was pregnant. I had super dry and flaky skin on my face, I was embarrassed to go out because I’d be flaking all over my face even when I’d applied a tonne of moisturiser in the morning.
    Thank goodness the chick at mecca recommended it to me otherwise I’d have stayed home forever.


  • vinegar – for cooking, cleaning, washing etc


  • Aquaphor – I use it as an occlusive and it keeps my skin looking supple and dewy. Its also great to use on abrasions


  • I agree with the comment below about paw paw ointment. It is so affordable and so effective.


  • waxed floss tape! Makes flossing so much easier, and less painful than the standard skinny floss, which can feel like piano wire on sore gums. But the tape is also handy as an emergency tie/shoe lace. I also have used an empty floss container instead of scissors when travelling (back pre covid) on planes, to cut thread and yarn when sewing and crocheting.


  • Love to dream baby swaddles. I’m terrible at swaddling babies, so being able to zip them up in something in the middle of the night when I’m sleep deprived is amazing. Plus my boys both seemed to prefer the arms up swaddles so they gave us a better sleep.


  • I love, love liquid smoke. It just makes my chilli taste better and it is great in marinades and it smells divine. If you like the smokey goodness of smoked paprika, you’ll love liquid smoke!


  • Georgimane hair mask….hands down best hair product i have ever bought and i have bought many


  • Marcalan as a lip moisturiser. And McLintocks Vanilla Spray.


  • Anything from Lush. They’re beautiful products and always feel like a luxury, but the price tag isn’t insane. Just a little high.


  • Unscented baby wipes. I travel everywhere with them for the kids and myself and they are the best product to grab if you spill something on your clothes. Fibres don’t breakup when you wipe and in most cases stains are lifted if you use them straightaway.


  • Bega peanut butter haha hands down the best


  • I love my paw paw ointment, it is so versatile and good for my lips.
