Recently I had a chance to review a new product from trust worthy brand Dettol "Dettol Multi-use wipes" . Today, I am going to share my opinion about the product.

Dettol Multi-Use Wipes pack comes with 30 wet wipes, which cost Rs 115/-.Though the wipes are really wet, the opening of the pack is re-sealable type, it prevents the wipes to drying out. It is convinient, easy to use and portable too.

5. For hygenic and sanitation.

How am I using this new Dettol Multi-Use wipes:

2. I carry this wipes in my hand bag to clean my oily skin then and there. Since the PH value is neutral, I dont feel any irritation or rashes of using this.

3. My little one watches rhymes in my laptop while she is eating. She makes a big mess in the laptop with her food hand. Once it dried out, its so difficult to clean up the mess she made. But, with these wipes.. My laptop got back its new look.. It removed all the dirt and spots.. I feel so easy to clean up these now.

Energy in a Jar

Use funnel or fold paper like funnel shape. Keep the funnel in mouth of the jar and start layering the ingredients as listed order.

Step 2: Add label and instruction



I used online editing tool www.picmonkey.com for making these tags.

I created two types of label. One for Name label and other for energy bite recipe label. Recipe Tag is very important because that will provide instructions on how to prepare energy bites.

Take print out of these two labels and trim it carefully using Scissor and punch a hole in recipe label and insert thread on the hole. Recipe tag and name tag is ready.

Stick the Name tag on the Mason jar lid using Glue.
Close the lid carefully. Tie the recipe tag on neck of the jar.

I uploaded the recipe tag image. you can use that. In case you are designing your own labels, here is the instruction for Energy bites.

* Take jar ingredients in a bowl, add 2 to 3 tbsp of peanut butter. Mix well and roll them into 1 inch ball. Freeze it for an hour.

(Note : If you are allergic to peanut butter, add almond butter)

You are done!
