Contigo® No-Spill Mug Giveaway

Green TrekkerGreen TrekkerBlue TrekkerBlue Trekker

I’ve had my share of horrendous spills in my life as a mom of four young boys.  Just this week it was a 1/2 a box of cereal and four cups of milk, which splashed all over my counters, cabinets, and floors, when a football landed in the middle of it.  You know that “No Ball in the House” Rule”? They just might be on to something there…

And as for the “Don’t Cry Over Spilt Milk” Rule, clearly that guy didn’t have kids when he wrote that one.

However, I would MUCH rather clean up cabinets, floors, counter tops over spills in the van.  There’s really not much worse on earth than scrubbing down car seats and upholstery in hopes of not having the residue spoil in the hot van. {Can I get an “AMEN”?} 

That’s why I’m soooooooo thankful for these No-Spill kids mugs I’ve found through my friends at Contigo®. They sent me four to try out and I was over the moon.  No leaks, no mess, no drips, no worries. They are ideal for on the go, and I’m thinking they’ll be perfect for school lunches. {Hold me – the “school” word makes me hyperventilate lately.}

Unlike sippy cups or straw cups, there are no valves, straws, or other random parts to keep track of – and they are easy for little hands to operate. The AUTOSEAL automatically seals the lid between sips with an easy press-to-sip, release-to-seal button making it 100 percent spill and leak-proof. Other things I love?  They are top-rack dishwasher safe,  BPA free, the design is super fun, and surprisingly very affordable at $5.99 suggested retail. {There’s a Set of 2 Kids Cups currently on Amazon for under $10!}

    The largest spill i ever cleaned up was when my twins learned that there was a hole in their rice pack which we’d use on one of their legs for growing pains – the spread the rice all over their room – then dumped it into the sink – thinking they were gonna get in trouble they tried washing it down… i spent 2 hours cleaning soggy rice out of the drain and their room.

    Right after the quaddles were all home I was up making bottles in the middle of the night. We were using premixed Neosure. I was so tired after I broke the seal on the top I forgot to tighten the lid before I started to shake it up, lol. The lid flew off and I threw formula all over my kitchen- the windows, the cabinets, the ceiling, the stove, the countertops, the fridge, the floor and myself and mother in-law. I was SO upset I cried. Mom was laughing at me and told me to go to bed that she would take care of the babies and the cleanup. It was the worst mess EVER and SO STICKY!!! I can laugh about it now, but I did not think it was even a little funny then 🙂

    The biggest spill I’ve ever cleaned up as a parent would probably be the day I tripped over the baby gate bring my twin daughters each a full plate of food for lunch! You would be surprised how far 2 plates of food goes when it is on your floor!!

    This spill was before I was a parent, but it was by far the worst. My mother-in-law used my car to buy groceries and forgot that she bought a gallon of milk and left it in my trunk. It was there for a week before I discovered it and it was horrendous! My car smelled like rotten milk for months. Nothing could get the smell out. I pray nothing like that ever happens again, ha!

    My son recently spilled an entire glass of Dr. Pepper all over himself and the couch. It was just after he’d had a bath, and I had told him NOT to get a drink because it was too late to be drinking a soft drink. He disobeyed, got all wet and sticky, and the couch will never be the same! Needless to say, the wet/sticky part was punishment enough for both of us! 🙂

    when my daughter found a straw cup and flipped up the straw lid allowing the fermented juice inside to EXPLODE all the way to the other side of the room, on the walls, curtians, ceiling, ceiling fan, rugs, freshly folded and sorted laundry

    The biggest mess had to be when the kids got in the pantry and pulled chocolate, sprinkles, marshmallows and ice cream up stairs to their room. It was a huge sticky mess.

    I have a 3 week old, so I’m dealing with my clumbsiness at 3am when I spilled my precious milk that I’d just spent a half hour pumping.

    Worst spill, a full, glass bottle of Franks Hot Sauce in my pantry. I had two boys under two at the time, I just closed the pantry door and waited for my husband to get home before even tried to clean it up. What a mess! I LOVE Contigo products, I just picked up some of their stainless steel waterbottles at Costco for my kiddos and they LOVE them!

    Dropping a whole pitcher of orange juice in front of the open refrigerator door was a sticky mess all over the floor, cabinets AND every shelf and drawer of the fridge. Yuck!

    I would love to try these cups for my 3 little ones!

    My son just spilled most of a bottle of root beer in the van over the weekend. It just happened to be on top of everything (the kids’ toys, blankets, etc) that were on the floor as we traveled. What a sticky mess!

    The worst spill I’ve had was when my kids spilled a whole gallon of milk all over my kitchen table, floor and onto my carpet. It was horrible to clean up.

    wow, guess i’m fortunate enough not to really remember a specific big spill although we’ve had plenty .. my guess would be a glass full of milk all over – so grateful we don’t have carpet!! ;D

    There have been so many spills over the years. Where do I begin? I, too, have had the classic milk spilled all over the kitchen table, down through the cracks and dripping onto floor. What mother of boys wouldn’t have the ocassional popsicle left unwanted somewhere, to melt, drip all over, and get everything sticky? But, my most recent spill came all on my own. I was entering the kitchen, via the garage, while holding a can of Mt Dew in one hand and about eight bottles of fingernail polish in another hand. All of a sudden, my flip flop caught on the bottom step, and I went tumbling down. I couldn’t catch myself, so my left knee to the weight of my fall – and, after four kids, that’s a lot of weight (unfortunately). Bottles of fingernail polish went flying; luckily, they didn’t break. However, the Mt. Dew was a different story…all over me, all over the floor, all over the cabinets, countertops, etc. What a sticky mess!!!!

    My biggest and most expensive spill happened when my oldest was just a few months old. He was a preemie and drank high calorie formula that had to be mixed a certain way (like a science experiment). I had just finished mixing a pitcher of formula and turned to answer the phone and knocked over the pitcher. I cried.

    Worst spill that I can think of today was not actually a spill but a baby oil fight between two of my triplets. Yep! Baby oil all over the walls of the bathroom, play loft & their bedroom & the carpet! The second “spill” was the Vicks Vapor Rub they rubbed on each other & the carpet & walls again of the play loft.

    Oh gosh…what haven’t I had to clean up? I think any spill in a carseat! It always soaks through the cover and drips onto the seat of the car…and then into the crevice between the cushions…such a pain to get rid of!

    Gatorade on the (not cheap) throw rug or a dominoes effect of a crockpot and slew of glasses falling off of a counter top to the tile floor.
