The Isle of Man is nestled between England, Ireland, Scotland and Wales, in the Irish Sea. We have lived here since 2018 and have been reviewing various places since we arrived.

This page lists all reviews we have written from the Isle of Man (as well as some non-location based reviews) to make it easier to differentiate them from any UK reviews. I have also added the reviews to a map so that you can choose somewhere close to home or something further afield.

Review of Reusable Wipes

Well, my very good friend was telling me that she uses reusable nappies and reusable wipes with her newborn. Ever since this conversation, I’ve felt guilty that I’m not doing more for the ‘war on plastic’. I use reusable bags, reusable straws, reusable take away coffee cups and felt maybe
