A Clean Kitchen is a Happy Kitchen


I'm happy to team up with Dawn and Double Duty Divas to share this content. All opinions are my own. A clean kitchen is a happy kitchen! In the evenings when I'm making dinner I often find that the food in my frying pan doesn't just stay in my frying pan. Often times, when the food gets hot enough grease, fat, little food particles and more start flying out of the pan. Sometimes when I'm making sauces or boiling water things great really crazy and spill over. These messes are such a pain … [Read more...]

Steps to Cleaning your Carpet


Disclosure: Rug Doctor sent me a product to facilitate my review. All experiences and opinions are my own. Yours may differ. When we bought our house it was a foreclosure. A really nice foreclosure. All we needed to do was have the carpets cleaned and move in. There were little holes in the walls from all the TVs they had in almost every room, but besides that this place was perfect! We have now lived here for almost 3 years and my carpet is beginning to wonder if it will ever be clean … [Read more...]

Cleaning with Steam

My shower doors became clearer and my faucets beautifully shiny.  Cleaning … [Read more...]

Sponsored Video: Liquid-Plumr Hair Clog Eliminator

Disclosure: This post has been sponsored by Liquid-Plumr, but concerns my own opinion. I have a very thick head of hair. I also have a shedding problem. After I had my baby over a year ago I knew the hair shedding would begin and it is still going on. This means that even though we have a drain cover and I can catch a lot of my hair in the shower, some still sneaks down the drain. This is an even bigger problem in my sink and we do have a water flow problem there. I'm very excited to have … [Read more...]

Vacuuming Made Easy with the Shark Rocket Ultra-Light Upright Vacuum


Disclosure: I received a free produce sample for review purposes. All experiences and opinions are my own. Yours may differ.     Recently our vacuum bit the dust. It's always sad when that happens because I think it is hard to find a replacement vacuum. There are so many to choose from and so many different price points that it can get stressful. Since I have a good relationship with Shark I emailed them asking if they had anything I could review. To my delight, they said yes! … [Read more...]

Sponsored Video: Making Trash Clean Up Fun with Glad Black Bag

This is a sponsored post by Glad. My husband and I are always looking for ways to make cleaning up more fun.

Our trash day is Wednesday, so Tuesday nights we make a game of gathering all the trash and … [Read more...]
