Being an “Arizona girl” (so to speak) I’m not all that big on carpet.  Carpet is for bedrooms…period.  But once you move somewhere, um, colder and realize that tile floors would be absolutely freezing in the winter, carpet is definitely where it’s at!   One downside of carpet are stains – with kids, pets, and clumsy […]

I participated in a campaign on behalf of Mom Central Consulting for Cascade. I received a product sample to facilitate my review and a promotional item as a thank you for participating. One item I’ve never been able to find that is ‘natural’ is dishwashing detergent.  I’ve tried every single one available to me, and typically to […]

It’s hard to believe that we’ve been living in Washington for four months – that’s 1/3 of a year!  Thankfully, our home no longer looks like this – but we do still have a few boxes hanging around in closets and storage areas.  If you’re a long-time reader, then you know that in 2012. we […]

      Our last house in Phoenix had a brilliant white sink with white countertops, and before moving in, I didn’t give it a second thought.  Fast forward two weeks and I remember telling my husband that I never, ever wanted another white sink!  They are so difficult to clean with natural products and […]

Toothbrushes.  So terribly necessary for good oral health, yet so woefully disposable.  If you use them for too long, they lose their effectiveness and must be thrown away.  Or is there another way? First, though, let’s talk about different options when you head to the store to purchase a toothbrush.  Did you know that there’s […]

Recently, a very sweet representative from Celadon Road contacted me about doing a review of a couple of their all natural, toxin free household products.   The first product I recieved was the allergy-friendly laundry soap in the lavender scent. It might seem like a small amount to review, but really, it was more than […]

Have I been busy! Not sure if you’ve noticed, but I haven’t posted for awhile, and I do apologize. Our family moved into a new (to us) home, so we’ve been packing, unpacking, moving, rearranging, etc. And guess what else we’ve been doing a lot of? CLEANING! Thankfully, I recieved Tropical Traditions All Purpose cleaner […]

A lot of people I know buy the small bottles of liquid dish soap, then replace them as they empty.  I find that not only expensive, but a little wasteful – plus you have to pick up the bottle and squirt some (usually too much) out to wash whatever you’re washing.  I have found a […]

Tropical Traditions is such an awesome company to work with, so when I had the chance to review another one of their products, I jumped on it.  I received the 6lb Tropical Traditions Oxygen Bleach to review. It’s HUGE!  I’ve used this for so many things – the most simple being that you can just […]
