Have you ever had anyone give a little sniff and ask you, “What’s that smell?”. And you have no idea, because you can’t smell it? If you’ve found yourself in this situation, you may be suffering from noseblindness!

Cure Noseblindness with Febreze! #Noseblind #DDDivas

What, exactly, is noseblindness? Well, over time, we all become accustom to the odors around us. Odors from various activities – like baking, for example – can stay airborne or cling to soft surfaces. When the odors stick around, they start to blend in, leaving you “nasally challenged” to your own environment. Continue reading »

I’m working with Tilex® on a paid basis, but my opinions are my own.

Cleaning the bathroom is not most people’s favorite tasks. With these bathroom cleaning tips, though, hopefully the task will be a bit easier and go a bit faster!

5 Easy Bathroom Cleaning Tips #Tilex

Toss the Junk

Before you can get things really clean, you’ll want to declutter as much as possible. It’s easy for samples, bottles of nail polish, and the like to pile up. Be as ruthless as possible; if you haven’t used it in a month or two, it’s probably time for it to go (most cosmetics and bathroom products have a shelf-life, anyway). Continue reading »

This post on laundry tips has been sponsored by Global Influence. All words and opinions are my own.

When I was in middle school it always seemed like the one thing I wanted to wear was in the wash.  Being a hormonal preteen, I couldn’t understand what the big deal was about just doing the laundry already.  That is, until I was married and had a houseful of laundry of my own to stay on top of.

Laundry Tips and Time Savers

There are days I feel like some of that laundry could march itself into the washing machine unassisted.  My husband’s outdoors-work clothes, Bubbles’ did-you-eat-the-mac-and-cheese-or-bath-in-it clothes, even Austin’s workout clothes (if you thought teenage boys’ clothes smell bad, try them after two hours of lifting weights at the gym).  They also carry their own particular funk and cleaning challenge.

This review and giveaway was made possible by Double Duty Divas and Mr. Clean. I was provided the featured product free along with a gift card to facilitate my review, but all opinions are 100% mine.

Not everyone loves cleaning.  I know, who would have guessed, right?  Even for myself, as much as I love organizing, there are some places I’d rather pass off the cleaning to someone else if at all possible.

Floors, for example.  I think it’s because it was one of my chores when I was a kid.  I also don’t really jump for joy when it’s time to clean the bathroom, either.

New Mr. Clean Liquid Muscle #CleanFreeWeekend

So when I recently heard about Mr. Clean Liquid Muscle, I knew I wanted to learn more.  It has 2.5 times more power in every drop, which means it a deeper clean, lifting away more dirt with less effort.  Now weekends mean less scrubbing time, which means more free time to play outside with Bubbles or make trips to the mall.

The reviewer has been compensated in the form of a Best Buy Gift Card and/or received the product/service at a reduced price or for free. All thoughts and words are my own.

As much as I love to organize and clean, there have always been a few tasks that were on my short list of “would rather not”.  Some people hate dusting and laundry; I actually like those tasks.  But vacuuming, while not an inherently hard task, has never been my favorite.

To start with, I’m short.  Most vacuums I’ve owned have come up well past my waist, which makes them awkward to handle.  And then I have to drag the thing around, trying to not knock stuff over, stopping to haul things out of the way so I can get under every surface and behind every nook.

New Dyson DC59 Available at Best Buy #DysonatBestBuy #BestBuyWOLF

But now – now I seriously love vacuuming.  Like, I’ve vacuumed “just for fun” a couple of times, when it didn’t really even need it.  And it’s all because of the new Dyson DC59 available at Best Buy. Continue reading »
