I cleaned my own carpets last week and my dear husband is ever so grateful I’m done. I felt like a 5th grade science experiment with 5’x5′ patches of wet carpet around the TV room figuring out which one worked the best. Between the […]
There’s just something about having men in the house that makes it smell more… musty and I’m not talking about just the bathroom or bedroom. The mustiness spreads to the whole house and is there to welcome you when you get back from the grocery store; it’s a problem. I find the […]
To be perfectly honest, my oven was not that bad. It had enough grease that I considered cleaning it when I finally had enough time. Saturday I decided I had enough time because I saw a homemade soft scrub on Pinterest; my motivation to do really cool projects, sometimes. Deviating from the […]
I’ve been seeing ideas around Pinterest for a diy soft scrub and it reminded me of using the real soft scrub a long time ago. The one thing I remember about it was that it worked really well. So I thought to myself, “my oven is really gross, I should probably […]

I’m excited. I love my all purpose vinegar cleaner but sometimes it burns my nose. I love that it cuts through messes super easy (like last night when I spilled fresh berry juice everywhere) and leaves my table nice and shiny. But the smell of pickles lingers for a while. I like pickles but not […]
For those of you who have kids with retainers or if you have one, this post is for you. If not, check out the before and after picture anyways, ’tis a great transformation. After the orthodontist removed the braces and handed you the retainer, do any of you remember getting instructions […]
Have you ever actually read the warning label to see what is dangerous the chemical you’re using?
