“Cleaning your house while your kids are still growing up is like shoveling the walk before it stops snowing.” –– Phyllis Diller
Most people wouldn’t say they enjoy spending almost 10% of their days scrubbing, vacuuming, washing and shoveling up piles of clutter. Consumers are always on the lookout for a simpler, effective way to help make cleaning a snap. Featured on MSNBC, the Lay-n-Go is the must-have time-saving device for households with small children.
One of the greatest challenges new parents face is integrating baby into their active lives. Some of the gear that is supposed to make going out with baby easy, is bulky, heavy and inconvenient.

QuickSmart meets the world’s strictest safety standards with all the features today’s busy parents need, and nothing they don’t.
In a life with kids it follows that there are plenty of bumps and scrapes. The motto of the me4kidz team is “fix it, clean it, back to play,” that aptly describes how their line of first aid kits and products specially designed for the younger set works.

To cope with these problems, the family-owned company devised the medi-products so that first aid can be given as soon as it’s needed.
Homemakers, especially those with children, grandchildren, and other little relations afoot, are diligent about keeping things clean. The urge to sanitize merges with a concern for eco-friendly products that are gentle on people and the planet. Pollutants in the home may not be as obvious as clouds of smoke and smog in the sky, but since there are chemical toxins in homes that impact air supply, it’s smart to use organic products for household cleaning. Educate your customers and become a resource to find these brands that are both organically clean and get the dirty work done: Fields Organics, MomSpit, Grandma’s Secret Spot Remover and Poo-Pourri.
Paula Roeske considered herself a very organized person when she had her first child. She went so far as stack all of his baby food jars by type in her pantry. She did not realize how easily these jars could topple and fall until her 6-month-old son began standing and holding on to her leg.

The need for a safe baby food organizer led to the creation of PRK Products, Inc. and the Universal Baby Food Jar Storage & Organizer.
