As a Mom I prefer to have my childrens clothes looking clean and stain free, unfortunately I have messy eaters , My children seem to think that their clothes are napkins or I get peanut butter and jelly hugs and end up with it on my pants or shirts. We also eat a lot of sauce based foods and with that red sauce ends up on the lightest colored clothes that we own,It is some conspiracy with in the food world that staining foods end up on light clothes. Well If you are anything like me as soon as your family removes those articles of clothing one or two things happen, I pre- treat it with Oxi Clean Laundry Stain Remover and let it soak and then my attention gets directed elsewhere or it immediately wash it , Usually it just sits and soaks. Now when it comes time to wash it I put in a scoop of Oxi Clean Powder with my usual laundry detergent, There are so many steps to get my childrens clothes clean and Hubby is no exception to stains and spilling who knows what on his clothes. Well I have been recently introduced to Oxi Clean Laundry Detergent which saves me from adding this and that, I still pre-treat just to make sure but I use two products instead of 3 or 4 and that makes it much easier and time saving. I’m not one who likes to spend my weekends checking clothes for surprise stains due to the fact that I have kids that forget to tell me that they have spilled something on their clothes for the umpteenth time, Now that I have begin using Oxi-clean laundry detergent in place of what I have been using, I have confidence in knowing that my families clothes with come out clean and nice looking until the next time . Saving time and money is always a good thing.

Now with the Holidays approaching you want to bring out your most beautiful table cloth and even though you know that stains are probable to happen, You know that cleaning with the Oxi-Clean Laundry detergent will get those sought after stains out and who needs any more added stress during the Holidays , But then you look over and see the mass amount of dishes and you want to spend time with your family , watch the parade and games to follow , ah you have a dishwasher yay time saver , So go ahead use it and while you are at it useOxi Clean Extreme Dishwasher Detergent with power crystals with confidence knowing that your dishes will come out clean.and with no residue and you get sparkling clean plates, glasses and flatware.

Neater Feeder Review & Giveaway *Ends 10/24*

Neater Feeder Review & Giveaway *Ends 10/24*

We all know that feeling of walking into the kitchen with socks on and getting them wet, due to your pet spilling their water or that crunch sound when you have stepped on some of their kibble, I have experienced both first hand, and it can ruin your whole day especially if your running late grabbing coffee and trying to put your shoes on as you head out the door. But now you need to either live with a wet sock or go in and grab another pair. I do the latter and in a haste mood grab another pair of socks and a rag to clean up the split water and I honestly think that the cat and dog are laughing at me , Only because they know that they have done it, or they look at the kids as to blame them for not watching where they are going and trip or kick the water and food dishes. Well I have found a solution for just that problem. The NEATER FEEDER, What is the Neater Feeder you ask, Well let me tell you it is an innovative product that holds both the food and water dishes in a handy dandy tray with a unique filter that allows the spilled water to drain into the lower portion of the tray, and best of all it is skid resistant. Ariel my Chihuahua loves to play in her water she slops it all over the place or her tags get in and drips tiny droplets on the floor, or she picks through her food and finds her favorite tasty morsel and discards the rest until she chooses to eat them, Well no more of that nonsense , With the filter being at the bottom of the tray any mess she makes stays on top while the water drips into the holes and stays there until I lift of the bowls and discard the water in the sink.Even if one of the kids walks by and accidentally bumps into the water does not go on the floor. So not having to deal with getting my socks wet or stepping on crunchy food pleases me and saves aggravation before the day gets on its way . So if you have a cat or a dog their is a size that can accommodate your needs for your pet as you can see HERE This has out done its self and saved my sanity and my peace of mind.

Frugal Halloween Wreath

Frugal Halloween Wreath

I had the wire coat hanger, and the screen mesh on hand , All I had to purchase was the orange plastic table cloth for $1.00 at the Dollar Store . and Boom ‪#‎HalloweenWreath‬
You will need 1 wire coat hanger, 1 54″ plastic table cloth and a few squares of screen mesh, 
Take the coat hanger and un-twist and form your desired shape, I did a circle and taped the ends together, cut table cloth into 3 inch by 3inch strips and loop around the coat hanger and tie into a knot and continue this and as you add strips push each one down until the circle is completely filled in between tie strips of screen mesh, this took me about 2 1/2 hours to complete.

BarKeepers Friend Cleanser Review

BarKeepers Friend Cleanser Review

I first became aware of Bar Keepers Friend Cleanser when I worked for a Professional Cleaning Service, We had tough jobs to tackle ,tubs that seemed like they have not been cleaned for many months and white appliances that seemed as though they have been through a dust and grime storm, We tried other scouring/gel cleaners and nothing seemed to cut through it and no matter how much “elbow grease” we used it still was not good enough. We consulted other professional cleaning companies and each one of them told us to use Barkeepers Friend. My goodness after one use we were amazed it truly was the almighty cleanser, It comes in 5 very powerful forms , I personally love the Powdered Form of the Cleanser and Polish , over the Liquid only because I use less and in my opinion the powered form is easier to control the amount to be used, where the liquid needs to be shaken before use and it pours out a little too fast for me. My days of being a Professional Residential/Commercial cleaning are over , But to this day I still use Bar Keepers Friend in cleaning my own house. I have kids and they can dirty a tub/shower and with in one use of Bar Keepers Friend my tub and sink look nice and shiny until the next time. Please take a moment to check out their full line of products to see which one will fit your cleaning needs.BarKeepersFriend Products Since 1882 Bar Keepers Friend has been cleaning Households across The United States and other Countries.

How many times do you walk in a home and wonder to yourself what that funky smell is? Lets face it, this happens! its life, and every home goes nose blind to their homes own smells! Here we have a combo of baby, dogs, weird smelling vegan food…well you get the idea. The issue here is that we dont notice these smells!

Yeah they are cute…but they dont always smell great! Lets face it, spit up and wet dog isnt everyone’s idea of a “Homey” smell!

A Mountain of Clothes deserves Purex Crystals Mountain Breeze

A Mountain of Clothes deserves Purex Crystals Mountain Breeze

With kids comes clothes and with that comes laundry and I have at least a ” Mountain” of laundry come the end of the week, With one child that wears uniforms and then she comes home and puts on play clothes, but like with most kids it’s just not going out side oh no they seem to be attracted to sand, leaves , dirt etc.. My son will find away to get his clothes dirty and with that comes odors , funky smells and all around teenage boy smell. My girls are no exception my youngest has a habit of spilling what she eats on her clothes and mostly it is Milk and at the end of the day it has one of those smells and then there is the teenage daughter that prefers to lather or bathe her self in perfume and what not, So when it comes to Laundry day which is usually the entire weekend those “smells” are not so great and then there is the bedding ie.. blankets, sheets pillow case for all us and they of course trap in smells from body odor, dog odor . Into the washer they go now normally I would use liquid fabric softener but alas there is a newer concept out that involves a “crystal” like that gets added to the wash that dissolves while washing laundry and then when dried the scent is carried out , Does it last after being dried you ask ? Why yes ,Yes it does I used Purex Crystal Mountain Breeze on last weeks load of laundry and I could still detect it through out the week,It is a simple concept really, Just add your desired amount with the pre-lined cap that is provided and add to the wash as the water in running to fill up your machine and that is it.DSC01639Purex Mountain Breeze crystalsDSC01641
