What they say:

“Over time baby bottles can become cloudy and smelly and become a breeding ground for bacteria, because of milk residues that get left behind, even after washing up.

“Unlike regular washing-up liquids, Nimble Babies Milk Buster detaches milk fat and proteins from plastic, so they don't cling on to the bottles, leaving you with bottles that are safer for your baby, which look & smell cleaner for longer.

“It is made from plant-based ingredients and does not contain harmful chemicals like SLES, dyes, or fragrances.

“Independent laboratory test shows that Nimble Babies Milk Buster is more effective than regular washing up liquids in removing milk residues.

“It works well on both formula and breast milk. And it is also suitable to use for sippy cups and other baby utensils.”

Would you recommend Nimble Babies Milk Buster to other mums?

I would definitely recommend this product to other mums. I think it is brilliant. The product does exactly what it says it will do and is easy to use. I was very impressed with the results and will continue to use this in the future. The travel size is ideal, the design is great and makes my life easier.

How did this product make your life easier?

I was so impressed at how clean this got my plastic bottle. I used it on the bottles that I am currently using with great results but I also tried it on some older bottles which I was considering throwing away. Nimble Babies Milk Buster managed to get them clean and they look like new. I also used it on a pair of nipple shields that I was struggling to get properly clean but Nimble got those clean removing all the milk stains that had made them go cloudy.

Now that I have used this product I will definitely be using it again in future. I was so impressed with the results that I have seen. I like the travel size it fits in my changing bag without taking up to much room. I think it is great value for money.

What changes would you make to this product?

To be honest I thought this product was great. If I had to pick one thing to change (I am struggling to think of anything) it would be the font on the bottle. The logo is good but the I am not keen on the other fonts used but that wouldn't stop me buying the product!

Would you recommend this to other mums?

The travel-sized bottle fits in any toiletry bag and is ideal for taking to the grandparents’ house on overnight stays. It is incredibly easy to use and a little goes a long way. The fresh scent of the product really transfers to the bottles and they were noticeably less cloudy after just one use. The bottle is attractive and well designed with clear instructions for use.

How did this product make your life easier?

The quick spray into each bottle takes seconds and the product dispensed really goes a long way, the bottles are much cleaner and fresher and the plastic much clearer after use compared to when using just ordinary washing up liquid. This was especailly reassuring when staying at grandparents’ house as I usually use a dishwasher which deeps cleans the bottles and after the products use the bottles came out just as clear.

It offers great value for money as a little goes such a long way. I would not travel wothout this product now! It does exactly what it says it will on the packaging without being over complicated and is one of those items you dont realise you NEED until you’ve tried it. Then once you’ve tried it you cant be without it.

Tested by mum Kate White for the M&B Awards 2017:

Would you recommend this to other mums?

I would recommend this product to anyone bottle feeding; either formula or expressed milk. It is quick and easy to use and gets rid of milk smells and residue. It’s a great size for a travel product so it fits perfectly in my changing bag. I like the fact that it’s baby friendly with no dyes, fragrances or SLEs. It lasts too as you only need a couple of squirts per bottle. It’s also good for cleaning sippy cups and cereal bowls. Great value for money!

How did this product make your life easier?

This product is very handy to have when you are out and about. Sometimes if you leave a used bottle in your changing bag it can start to smell and it’s much harder to clean the longer you leave it. It’s great to have the option of cleaning them while you are on the go. It’s also useful if you are going on holiday abroad. The bottle is only 60ml so you can take it in your hand luggage as it doesn't exceed the 100ml limit!

Would you choose this product to win?

It’s definitely a great product! It’s not something I would have thought of buying but now that I have tried it I quite like it. It’s very useful to have in your changing bag. What makes it stand out above normal washing up liquid is that it claims to be safer. It’s made from plant-based ingredients and has no nasties in it. I'd recommend this to someone going on holiday abroad or maybe going camping as it’s safe, small and light weight.

What changes would you make to this product?

The top is clear plastic and because it is so small it’s not easy to spot. Making it a darker colour would make it more obvious to the user to remind them to put it back on.
