Bathroom Trick

As some of you already know I am not crazy about all the cleaners out t here on the market.  For one they are full of things that I would rather not have in my home. They most always smell bad. And they always cost more than I would like to spend.

So I have been making my own bathroom cleaner for quite some time now. It cleans better than anything I had ever used (and I had used them all). It does not have the harsh chemical smell to it. And it uses 2 ingredients that I always have on the shelf anyway.  So to say the cost is low.......well lets say it is real low!!

Let me share the recipe with you and let you try it for yourself.

Bathroom Cleaner

1/2  cup dawn dish liquid (original blue)
white vinegar

 In a 32  oz. recycled spray bottle place the dawn and fill remaining bottle with white vinegar (do not shake!) Just gently turn bottle upside down a few times to mix.

Now use this to clean all the bathroom surfaces. Tubs, sinks, toilets bowls, chrome and even those hard to clean shower doors. You will be so surprised at how clean the shower doors are and how shiny the chrome becomes.

Well this week  I took this up a notch!! I placed the mixture in this:

 It makes it easier to just pick up and clean a spot or an area and not have to clean the whole room. Who knows, it might be so easy that I might get someone else to give it a try!! Now I really am not holding my breathe! I will remind you to store this upright, as it might leak from the sponge if you lay it down.

Just hang it from the ledge in the shower!

How about you, do you have any neat little cleaning tricks you would like to share? I love comments and I read every one of them.

Election Day 2012

Let me start out this post by saying that if you came to see alot of pictures then you are in the wrong place. I just came here today to talk to you about something that some folks will not talk about with their BFF. I came to talk to you about voting.

I look at voting as a priviledge or even a duty as an American citizen. But either way you look at it it surely is an HONOR. It is one of those things that I would walk miles to do if I had to. (even in the rain or snow!!!) (even barefoot!!) Okay, I think I made my point.

Now some people say they don't have time or that it doesn't matter if they vote or not, after all it is just one vote and that does not make a difference. Other say they don't like either candidate and don't want either one. And still others suggest that they have not heard the news stations say anything to make them want to vote or that they did not have time to watch the debates. 

Well I must be a bit different than your average "Joe" or "Jane" because I do not cast a vote depending on what the news stations or reporters have to say about them. I can look at the big picture and see that we are dealing with human beings and non of us are perfect. So I believe it is safe to say that , there are no perfect candidates, just human ones! I don't pick a candidate on the clothes he or she wears. Or where they might live. I do not decide based on whether or not they are a Democrat or a Republican.

As a Christian, I make my choices based on God's word. Things that factor in my decision are things like where they stand on abortion and gay marriage. How they look at dealing with the national debt or how they feel about the use of the welfare system. I do not even care what the newspaper or CNN or Fox News have to say.

One thing I know for sure is that even if you don't vote we will still have an election and there will still be a winner. So I guess I have to say that I hope you cared more about this election than who wins "Survivor" or American  Idol".
