You want your kids to grow, play and learn in clean, safe spaces – so it makes sense to be informed about the products used in them. Below you’ll find the questions our customers most often ask us, but if you have any further questions please drop us a line at hello@nimblebabies.com.

Milk Buster

What is Nimble Milk Baster made of?

It is made of the safest cleaning ingredients derived from sugar, amino acids, and coconuts. Its pH is balanced to be very close to that of water and it also has plant-derived ingredients to remove water hardness. 

Is it safe to use?

Yes, it’s been clinically tested and has been proven to be as mild as water.

How long does a bottle last?

One bottle can last up to 2 months of regular use. Great value for money, isn’t it?

Is it different from regular washing-up liquids?

It is sulfate-free just like your baby shampoo or bath liquid and is specially developed to detach milk fat and proteins, unlike regular washing-up liquids that are developed for food grease. It also contains a special odour-absorbing ingredient that gets rid of milk odour, not just masking it with fragrances. 

Can I wash the bottles with water alone?

If only you could - then we’d recommend it! But unfortunately, water alone isn’t enough to clean your baby bottles. You need a cleaning product like Nimble Milk Buster to detach the milk fat & proteins from the plastic so the bottles will be free from unwanted milk residues.  

Is sterilising not enough?

We’re afraid to say that sterilising alone isn’t enough to clean your baby bottles. Sterilising only kills the bugs and germs - they can grow back fast when milk residues are still around. You will need a cleaning product like Nimble Milk Buster to get rid of the bacteria-causing milk residues.

How do you wash baby bottles

It is best to wash the bottles straight after your baby finishes drinking from it. But we know this isn’t always possible! Simply use Nimble Milk Buster to get rid of milk residues. Just add a little warm water into the bottle, spray Nimble Milk Buster twice, brush and rinse thoroughly.  

Will it work on breast milk and formula milk?

Yes, Nimble Milk Buster works on all types of milk. You can also use it on other things like your baby’s dishes and utensils.

Why does Milk Buster have a strange smell?

Unlike your regular washing-up liquids smothered with fragrances,Nimble Milk Buster does not contain any chemical fragrances. So what you smell is the natural aroma of its plant-based cleaning ingredients.

Sticky Stopper

What is Nimble Sticky Stopper made of?

It is powered by plant-based cleaning ingredients derived from coconuts and a natural disinfectant called lactic acid.

What is lactic acid?

It is a natural disinfectant derived from fermenting sugar. It kills 99.9% of bacteria without having to use nasty chemicals like bleach.

How is it different to other surface cleaners?

Glad you asked! Sticky Stopper can clean and disinfect at the same time using plant-derived ingredients. Half of surface cleaners are actually not antibacterial but they make you think they are! And the other half are antibacterial but use harsh chemicals like bleach, triclosan, or what they call BIT (benzisothiazolinone) or MIT (bethylisothiazolinone).

Can I use it to clean and disinfect my baby's dummies?

Definitely! But to be extra sure that there are no residues left, we recommend that you rinse it off with clean running water before handing it back to your little one.

Laundry Lover

What is Nimble Cuddle Lover made of?

It’s powered by 88% naturally derived ingredients derived from coconuts and vegetables.

How is Nimble Laundry Lover different from other laundry products?

Our Laundry Lover is proven to show that it removes stains as good as the leading brand, but it’s as gentle as eco brands for the skin and fabrics. You basically get the best of both worlds.

How long will a bottle last?

One bottle lasts up to 25 washes. Our regular customers tell us that a bottle usually lasts 3-4 weeks with regular use.

How much liquid do I put in one wash?

We recommend that you put 1 cap full of liquid for one full load. You can put it either in the drum or the drawer of your washing machine. You can check out the more detailed instructions below to get the best results.

Can I still use my favourite fabric softener together with Laundry Lover?

Yes of course,the only thing to watch out for is to be sure that the fabric softener is also suitable for sensitive skin if you or your child are prone to skin irritation.

What is the remaining 12% made of?

We’re on a constant lookout to replace to get 100% of our ingredients be derived from plants. It’s a shame that we can’t do it yet because it will make the product cost 3X more. We didn’t want price to be a factor to discourage customers turned off from doing small things that will help improve the planet.

Is Laundry Lover suitable for wool washing?

Yes it is! But please remember to use a low temperature (no higher than 30 degrees) and the gentlest setting (usually the hand wash setting) of your washing machine. Also,if you’re only washing a few items,we would recommend reducing the dosage of Laundry Lover to 20ml.

Cuddle Lover

What is Nimble Cuddle Lover made of?

It is powered by plant-based ingredients derived from rapeseed.

How is Nimble Cuddle Lover different from other fabric softeners?

So happy you asked! We avoid using ingredients derived from animal fats or silicones that many leading fabric softeners use to soften the cloth,instead we harnessed the natural power of rapeseed to get the job done. It’s also fragrance-free,making it extra kind to sensitive skin.

How long will a bottle last?

One bottle lasts up to 70 washes.

How much liquid do I put in one wash?

We recommend that you use 20ml for one normal load. Simply pour into the appropriate drawer of your washing machine.

Can I still use my favourite laundry detergent together with Nimble Cuddle Lover?

Yes of course! The only thing to watch out for is to be sure that the laundry detergent is also suitable for sensitive skin if you or your child are prone to skin irritation. Have a look at our Laundry Lover if you are trying to find a suitable one.

Nappy Lover

What is Nimble Nappy Lover made of?

It is powered by plant-based ingredients derived from coconut and sugarcane.

How is Nimble Nappy Lover different from other laundry detergents?

As cloth-loving parents will know,reusable nappies can be tricky to wash. Nappy Lover has cleverly combined the cleaning power of powder detergent with the gentle and kinder to skin benefits of liquid detergent. Our non-bio powder effectively targets stinky stains without the need for extra boosters. We have also made sure that is completely dissolves in the wash to ensure no residues are left behind that could irritate skin or damage cloth fibres.

How long will a bottle last?

One bottle lasts up to 40 washes.

How much powder do I put in one wash?

We recommend that you use 40ml for one normal load and adding it to your drum instead of the drawer.

Why do you recommend using so much less powder than other brands?

Good question! Our formula is more concentrated than normal powders to achieve a better clean which is why we wouldn’t recommend using any more than 100ml per load as it will make a lot of foam which isn’t good for your machine.

Why do you recommend washing at 60 degree instead of 40 degrees like other brands?

We recommend 60 degree washing because the higher heat will help activate our oxygen-based disinfectant. Some products recommend 40 degrees because they have put in another ingredient (TAED), rather than heat, to activate the disinfectant. But we think that TAED could be quite harmful, so we decided to stay away from it.
