About Me

My photo
My name is Kaye and I am 58 years old. Unbelievably to me, at my age, I have now just embarked upon my third career - as a History Education Consultant! I love to cross stitch and quilt, especially with my kittens, Furio and Milo "helping" me. I also love to read, I have a passion for history and I have been cooking since I was about 12 - move over Junior Masterchef! So, this blog, which started out as a cross stitch blog sometimes morphs into a reading journal or a history lesson (sorry, I used to be a secondary teacher before I became a publisher and now a consultant) or a post about my cooking mojo. Whatever it is, this blog is alway about me, my family and my life here in Eaglemont, Victoria. I have been happily married for over 30 years to the most wonderful man and we are blessed with three beautiful grown up children.

Udderly smooth

Hello lovely bloggers,

When I was blog browsing the other night, I saw a post on Daffycat's blog where she mentioned liniment amongst her latest stash purchases and was complaining about its scent.

This made me think about a cream which I used to use when I was stitching many years ago called udder cream.  This is a great hand cream for stitchers as it is totally absorbed into the skin and then you can stitch straight away and it smells nice.  So, I did a google search to see if it still exist and imagine my excitement when I found that it is made by an Australian company called MooGoo and that my local health store stocks it.  This company has an online website and there are stockists in Hong Kong, Ireland, U.S. and New Zealand.

Now it is exactly what it sounds like - it is actually udder cream - it is used to stop teat cracks and keep udders supple!  Here are the directions on the back of the tube of cream which I bought:

"Wash udder and teat parts thoroughly before each milking to avoid contamination of milk. Apply udder cream to the udder after each milking , massaging into the skin.
For teat cracks, apply sufficient quantity to fill crack and surrounding area. As an aid in softening swollen udders during calving, apply liberally twice daily with gentle massage. May be used for dry or chafed skin and as an aid in keeping skin soft and supple." 

I can thoroughly recommend it as a hand cream for stitchers.

Have a good evening everyone, 

Hugs, Kaye xoxox

Udder Cream is the best, I live in Minnesota and the winters get very cold which chaps your hand, if you use Udder Cream this keeps your hands soft and almost free from crafts, I use it before I stitch it is almost grease free, I do wipe the palms of my hands just to make sure I leave no residue on my stitching.

I've got a couple of tubes of Udder Cream, but I don't use it often. It is great though.
