Purex Triple Action Liquid Laundry Detergent Review

purex

Purex Triple Action Liquid Laundry Detergent I will admit that I used to be kind of a "Tide" snob when it came to laundry detergent.  I guess it's because that's what I grew up around.  My Grama (who raised me) never used anything but Tide.  Being a Purex Insider has really opened my eyes, though.  So far everything I have tried from Purex I love. Purex just released their new Triple Action … [Read more...]

Happy 75th Birthday Windex!

windex

Windex is no stranger around here.  I have always used it to clean windows.  In fact, I grew up washing windows with my Grandma who would always use Windex.  I don't think I ever saw her use another brand.  Being that she is a complete neat freak, that says something! Over their 75 years in business, Windex has made quite a name for themselves as America's No. 1 Glass Cleaner.  Ask any American … [Read more...]

Review ~ Primo Water Portable Dispenser

900131-lowres-silo

Primo Water Portable Dispenser We are huge water drinkers in this house.  Especially myself!  Ever since I was diagnosed with kidney stones in my teens, I have to drink water nonstop to avoid issues.  I am also kind of snobby in the water department.  :/  I like my bottled water!  Our tap water is okay to drink, but the bottled stuff just tastes so much better to me. We currently have a big … [Read more...]

Review ~ Design with Vinyl Wall Decals

tree with two birds

Cats - Wall Decal and Tree with 2 birds I was born into a family of artists and lack all of their abilities.  It literally skipped me.  My mom is an amazing painter, drawer, sculptor, seamstress, etc.  My son is also freakishly good with art.  Then there is me.  I would say I have an "eye" for it, but really cannot produce anything myself. These adhesive wall decals are perfect for me!  They are … [Read more...]

Beat SAD with a Verilux HappyLight 6000 Energy Lamp

HappyLight Single.tif

Verilux HappyLight 6000 Energy Lamp I truly believe that I am solar-powered.  I thrive in sunlight and become depressed and useless without it.  As soon as the seasons change and the daylight hours shorten, I struggle with daily tasks and obligations.  I jokingly say that I should have been a bear.  I kick into hibernation mode as soon as it drops below 70 degrees.  I have seen lamps to fight … [Read more...]

Farberware Coffee and Tea Maker

coffee maker

Farberware 12-Cup Programmable Coffee and Tea Maker Life without coffee would be impossible for me.  I don't usually have more than 2 cups a day, but still, without those couple cups, I just don't know what I would do with myself.  And, because I load my coffee with cream and sugar and therefore calories...

55-2-20110831123831-oreck

For the last year or so, cleaning my house has been really unrewarding.  Which, is just depressing if you think about it... I mean, why bother?  But, that is not the right attitude to have either... The problem for me was, I had disgusting carpeting.  It had been tainted by pets so many times that all my vacuuming and steam-cleaning efforts were truly moot.  I just couldn't get rid of that … [Read more...]

Review ~ Tropical Traditions Powdered Laundry Detergent

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

Household Traditions Powdered Laundry Detergent - 5 lb. Up until about a year ago I thought I would never even try a powdered laundry detergent.  I have a faint memory of some sort of laundry disaster from my childhood.  My Grandmother had used a powder and it ended up crusted to all of the clothes.  Gram is the laundry queen, so this was quite devastating.  Well, the powdered versions of … [Read more...]

Keep Chips Fresh with THE GRIPSTIC
