This box is very durable and I imagine it will last for quite awhile. I’m currently using it store my recent knitting projects. I like that the inner contents are kept protected from busy little ones and those un-wanted unraveling accidents that have happened before!

InstaNatural Lemon & Peppermint Essential Oils Review

lemnppmint

As of last year, I was introduced to essential oils for the first time. I’ve been learning about all the benefits overtime and have been pleased with my findings. To benefit completely, one  will need to do a bit of testing and experimentation to find which and what works best for them.  Two oils I believe that are best to start out with are Peppermint and Lemon. These two oils can be used for household cleaning,  aroma therapy, skin care,  stress relief, immune system boosting, and much more!

Premium Delicates Laundry Bags {Review}

2015-01-18

Life is full of mundane tasks and there’s no ignoring them. These things must be done in the home to maintain order. Doing the laundry, is totally in the the top ten lists of mundane tasks. Everyone needs clean clothes and making the laundry routine manageable is totally high priority whether you have a family or are living on your own. In, creating an easy to follow through system, one has the ability to create a more serene atmosphere in their home and in their life.

A useful accessory I found beneficial to maintaining an acceptable routine are laundry bags. Out of all I’ve used in my eight years of washing and drying for my family are The Premium Delicates Laundry Bags by InsideSmarts. This set is my definite favorite and my most highly recommended.

The bags come in a set of four. There are two medium bags (12″x15″) and two large bags (16″x19″). Three of the bags are white and one is black. The black bag is one of the large bag options which holds a generous amount. The colors makes sorting fast and prevents washing my delicates in the wrong color load by accident.

What I noticed right away about these bags is the tight mesh. The mesh allows for protection of my delicate attire and doesn’t sacrifice cleaning power . Each of the bags feature a durable plastic zipper. The fact the zipper is plastic eases my mind of thinking rust or any other discoloring may damage my clothes compared to other bags I’ve used in the past.

There’s an elastic band on these bags where when the zipper is closed and slid underneath, it prevents the inner contents to tumble out into the wash. I’ve no longer had to dig through a wet load to untangle bra straps or to repair socks. These bags have really extended the life of certain garments.

Aside from socks and intimate apparel, I’ve used these bags for washing my yarn collection! In doing this, my yarn comes out odor free and feeling softer. In washing beforehand, it makes the yarn more manageable when knitting or crocheting. I feared doing this because I’ve had bags come open and leave a huge tangled mess but with these bags I’ve had zero problems! I’m so happy!

These bags have many appealing features and I feel they will last for a good long while. The price at $17.95 for the quality you are receiving is very reasonable. These are also made in the USA!

AmazonBasics Microfiber Cleaning Cloths {Review}

microfiber

The Amazon Basics Microfiber Cleaning Clothes are a great price! The fact also that this combination comes in three different colors makes designating them to certain task a cinch. For instance, I use the blue ones for dusting everything from the tables in the living room to my tablet and computer screens, the yellow ones for the kitchen for polishing pots and cleaning the counter tops, and the white for the bathroom for the mirrors and surface areas.

These cloths are super soft and are really excellent in picking up dirt and absorbing water (8x times its own weight!). I found them to leave whatever I had been cleaning streak and lint free everything single time! And they worked good alone but also well with chemicals though not really needed, in my opinion. These cloths also came out looking good as new in the wash. Just be sure not to throw them in dryer! Line drying is 100% recommended.

Other great uses for these cloths would be using them to wipe, clean, and polish you car, motorbike, or other types of vehicles. I also have a few cloths tucked away to clean camera lenses and screens. You name it, these cloths can get the job done! An all purpose product that is certainly. I like to that they are shipped in certified frustration-free packing too. I highly recommend these cloths to get any cleaning job big or small done effectively and efficiently.

Buy it: The AmazonBasics Microfiber Cleaning Cloth, (Pack of 24) can be purchased on Amazon.com for $16.99 & eligible for FREE Super Saver Shipping on orders over $25. Do note there are other size bundles of these you can choose to purchase.

oxomscup

Every last bit truly is used and not wasted when using the OXO Good Grips adjustable measuring cup in the kitchen. It’s also handy in measuring something out very precisely leaving no room for a miscalculation. Having a little too much or not enough can be crucial in some recipes! I have wanted a solution to removing or inserting every bit without scraping, mushing & squishing things down and I’ve now happily got it!

How this adjustable measuring cup is designed all you easily have to do is first locate your desired measurement of the various volumes markings on either the dry or solids or to the liquid fill side. Second you’ll then twist the turning knob which is the entire outside cup to the left until the inner part is aligned with that mark. Third load this gadget with your desired ingredients dry, solid, or sticky…all work great! And fourth, pour or twist the inner base to the right to dispense! Seriously it’s just that simple to use!

Cleaning this measuring cup is easily done. Both parts easily twist free from each other with little effort. The entire thing is also dishwasher top rack safe. It has comes out looking good as new every time it’s been clean. No fading or wear to be seen!The inner part of the cup (the plunger) I found to easily glide either up or down twisting left or right. The inner part has a silicone disk which acts like a squeegee which get every little bit the cup is distributing. So wonderful to feel as if I am not wasting any bit and everything goes into my cooking and baking!

Overall I would highly recommend this products. It’s saved me space, the need for different sized measuring cups, it’s easy to clean, and I especially love using it for sticky ingredients like peanut butter, shortening, and honey! It’s also a really great price! OXO has wowed me again with a genuinely innovative product that’s as durable as it is handy!

OXO Good Grips Silicone Steamer {Review}

oxo2

The OXO Good Grips Silicone Steamer is the perfect new addition to my kitchen. The bright green color totally pops and gives my kitchen quite the kick with it’s fresh appealing look, feel, and design. I am a huge fan of OXO Good Grips products and this BPA free steamer does not disappoint in the least.

The steamer’s with it’s genius pleated design size fits pots that have 7″ diameter or greater. The generous size also ensures it would be perfect for 4-8 quart sized pots though not limited to, you can also use it in your microwave. Also that fact that it’s made of silicone,ensures there’s no fear of scratching any of my non-stick pans or glass bowls.

It’s high walls keeps the inner contents away from the boiling water while the upper handles stay cool for when you are done. No need at all to use a pair of tongs to lift out or a hot pad and no worry of burning yourself. The handles can fold inward not obstructing any pot lid so no need to worry about sizing issues. I really like the handles too because when not in use, you can use them to secure the steamer rolled up for saving space during storage.

Clean up is a cinch since this silicone steamer is dishwasher safe! I’ve used other steamers and actually ended up cutting myself. No fear of that here. It’s also heat resistant up to 600 degrees Fahrenheit it.

This steamer is totally ideal for my family of four. I’ve used it almost everyday for steaming all sorts of vegetables, fish, Asian appetizers, and more! It’s also great to reheat leftover meats and other things that could get over done heating in another way. I highly recommend this steamer and am totally thinking about getting a second one soon!  There’s nothing I don’t like!

Want one too? You can purchase the OXO Good Grips Silicone Steamer in Green for  $16.99 & eligible for FREE Super Saver Shipping on orders over $25 at Amazon.com.
