I’m at the end of my annual MightyFix subscription! A year ago, I used a coupon code I found on another blog to sign up on the MightyNest website, and since then, I’ve been receiving sustainable, eco-friendly alternatives to common home and wellness products every month. (My first review was shared last September, second review last December, and third review in March.) The MightyFix by MightyNest is an excellent way to be introduced to new products and slowly transition to a greener, healthier lifestyle. (I’m still very much a work-in-progress when it comes to my lower waste goals.)
The subscription increased in price to $11 per month (formerly $10 per month) in order to cover the cost of using eco-friendly shipping materials—$132 annually if not prepaid. I paid $99 with the coupon code, making it $8.25 per month. As a member, you also get discounts on most products, and if you want to buy anything from the site, it ships free with your Fix. After much deliberation, I decided to renew my annual subscription, which is offered for a reduced price of $114 if it’s prepaid. That makes each fix $9.50, an increase of $1.25 each over my first annual subscription. The majority of the products I received this past year would still be well worth the price at $9.50 each. I’m excited to see what I receive over the next year! (I won’t be writing any more formal review posts, though. If I receive any amazing products I’ll likely mention them in general round-up type posts!)
I can invite three people per month to receive a free month of the MightyFix monthly subscription, so let me know via email if you’d like an invite (cottoncashmerecathair (at) gmail (dot) com)! If you email me in June, let me know which of the three products below is your favorite and I’ll select that item for you to receive. Note that MightyNest did not pay me or ask me to write this post, and I paid for the subscription myself.
All Good Goop Healing Balm (March 2019)
This all-purpose balm is perfect to use on minor cuts and scrapes, dry skin, and other skin irritations like bug bites and sunburn. It features an organic formula of essential oils and medicinal plants that is free of petroleum, parabens, GMOs, gluten, and synthetic ingredients. The 2 ounce size is perfect for travel.
I first used this balm on a couple of cat scratches (such is my life) but didn’t notice much of any change. Now that I think about it, I probably didn’t use it enough days in a row! This product is very highly-rated, especially for use on diaper rash and dry skin. After reading some of the reviews, I’m going to try it on body acne to see if it helps that at all! (My skin has been freaking out a little bit since getting my IUD a couple of years ago.)
Regular price: $13.99 / Member price: $12.59 / I paid: $8.25
Cose Nuove Swedish Dishcloths (April 2019)
These Swedish dishcloths are made of cellulose and cotton fabric, are incredibly absorbent (up to 15x their weight), and claim to leave no streaks on surfaces. They’re a natural alternative to disposable sponges and paper towels. They can be machine washed (and air dried) and will last for 9-12 months if cared for properly. At the end of their life, they are compostable and biodegradable.
I already own a set of “unpaper” towels, which are basically just reusable towels, and received a set of Tidy dish cloths in a previous Fix, and those have already dramatically reduced my dependency on paper towels. I’m thrilled to have another option, though! You can never have too many towel or sponge alternatives. I love that they are compostable since we have curbside compost pickup here. The designs are super cute, too. ;) (I received blue circles and green leaves.)
Regular price (each): $5.99 / Member price (each): $5.59 / I paid (for two): $8.25
These stainless steel straws are made from high-quality, medical-grade stainless steel. I received a set of bent straws, but they straight straws are also available (that are slightly wider for thicker drinks). They are dishwasher safe! It is suggested to rinse the straws out first before putting them in the dishwasher. The straw cleaner was also included as part of my Fix, which was a nice touch.
I was thrilled to receive this Fix! I’ve been wanting to get some reusable straws, and these are a great starting place. (I’m also curious about glass straws.) The only thing that makes me nervous is cleaning them! I appreciate that these can go in the dishwasher, but I want to make sure they won’t fall through any holes…haha. I also need to remember to bring them with me in order to actually use them when out and about. That always seems to be a big hurdle for me.
Regular price: $10.99 (+ $1.99 for the cleaner) / Member price: $9.89 / I paid: $8.25
