Today I have a lot of catching up to do, seen as I haven't posted in a while. Just to let you know, (other than giveaways I have planned for before then, I have an excellent company lined up known as Belly Charms, who are going to host a giveaway with me, and I'm SO excited about that one. (This will be around the middle of Febuary)
A lot has gone on this week, Haiti, Haiti relief funds, my first giveaway ... well - maybe I shouldn't put my news next to something so catostrophic, there's almost no words for the sorrow the people of Haiti must be feeling.
I've seen alot of other blogger posting great links for fund donation and thought that was great.
So let's hear it! - any names you like, any names you know, any names you wish you could have been called - all of them, I want them! I'll then pass them along to her, and IF she does pick one of your names (and if there's one or more comment for the same name, I will include everyone that posted) I'll be sending you a small 'thank you' gift , (for which I'll need your shipping info.)
Now back to other things, I have a "cleaning" tip, for everyone out there who suffers from this problem (and if you live in Utah area, then you're one of them):
How do you get rid of HARD WATER stains in the bathroom/laundry room etc. ??
The answer isn't Lime Away, which I personally dislike as it is. The smell makes my eyes burn, as well as my nostril hairs. That, to me, indicates that it's not "good", just "deadly". So here it is, now and then I work with a friend of mine or her mother, both of whom own seperate cleaning business'. They get to do some really high-end homes - absolutely beautifully decorated, all that jazz. (One home had maps placed at strategic locations, so you would know where you were and how to get where you wanted too. MAPS!!) Well, yesterday I went and helped my friend clean a beautiful home, and it had horrendous hard water stains. The fantastic acid she buys - nada. The soft scrub (a personal fav.) zip. She then tells me four words that changed my life.
"USE THE MAGIC MARKER"
That's right ladies (& gentlemen), the magic marker soaked in a bucket of warm water with cleaner in it. Wipes it right off! You can also use this bad boy on shelves in your pantry, walls, porcelin, anywhere it tells you it's safe to use a Magic Marker - you can use it on that.
I know, you're very welcome, ;) if you have any tips you want to share, feel free to add them here.
Another side note - I'll be posting an upcoming review/giveaway for some Country Bob's Sauce in the very near future - and I tell you what, you WILL become a believer after tasting that sauce, lol. It's that good!
