Product Review: Tiny Buds Bottle & Utensil Wash

As a mom, I constantly look for new baby and mommy products to try. And one of them is Bottle/Nipple/Breast Pump Cleanser. I have used three brands of bottle cleaners since I started pumping and Y started bottle feeding.
I initially bought Cradle Bottle and Nipple Cleanser. It's made from natural and edible ingredients so it's very safe for babies. I bought the bottle with pump and just buy the refill pack when I used it up. It can also be used to wash fruits and veggies. I also have tried Pigeon Bottle Nipple and Vegetable Liquid Cleanser, I love this too! It's just more expensive than the Cradle. Just two to three pumps of Cradle or Pigeon on a liter or two of water, a few bottles, feeding utensils, breast pump, and you're good to go! Both are not 'mabula' but it cleans effectively! I like that it only has a mild scent.
The one I'm using now is Tiny Buds. I chanced upon this product from the last Expo Mom. I wanted to try another brand of bottle cleanser so when I saw this I bought it. It costs 250 pesos for 500ml. The lady selling the product told me that Tiny Buds Bottle Cleanser is a great product (sales talking me), it's more 'mabula' so one pump would be enough and it cleans more effectively. She said that their product will be available in Rustan's soon. They also have Rice Powder and Hand Sanitizer but I opted to buy this first to try out. It also has an apple scent like Cradle.
Twice the bubbles for deeper clean. Uhm, no it's not!

So when my yaya told me that the Cradle bottle is empty, I asked her to use the new Tiny Buds. I specifically told her to use one pump only as it is mabula daw. I never really checked the cleaned bottles before til the other day. While I was making breakfast, I notice my breast pump was blurry (malabo), some of the bottles were blurry and has a bit of milk residue. I thought my yaya was slacking off and not cleaning properly, so I told her about it. She said that she did what I told her to use one pump only, so I told her to make it two pumps. Now we're using three or four five pumps of Tiny Buds and it's still the same! It doesn't clean my bottles or pumps! "Hindi maganda yung bagong panlinis" she said. Sayang, I have high expectations pa naman from this product.
See those residue? Ugh.. 
I'm really really really disappointed! So, we're going back to Cradle. I just told her to finish the Tiny Buds bottle. 
Fellow mommies, what bottle cleanser do you use?

  3. Where can I buy Plantex?
    From what I can remember, Cradle is Paraben-free. SLS-free not so sure. I'll check later. From my research and reading before sa mga forums, it's always Cradle. I should do more research!
