Let’s face it, life’s messy. Kids, pets, busy lives… husbands. 🤣

I’ve found something that makes it very simpler to keep it all clean. CleanSmart. Period. Spray it on. Walk away. That simple. How?! This cleaner is made with natural Hypochlorus Acid and made with 100% natural ingredients. It dissolves to saline solution and leaves no chemical residue. And no fumes!

This cleaner can be used on anything, door knobs and appliances to countertops, highchairs, toys, and switches. It’s even safe for use on baby’s pacifier, and safe to spray around food and pets.

Plus, CleanSmart kills 99.9% of germs, including Coronavirus, cold, flu, strep, RSV, staph, MRSA, E. Coli, salmonella, and listeria, to name a few! The EPA has approved CleanSmart to kill a while list of germs!

I even throw the mini bottle in my diaper bag to spray down items as we go (think shopping cart handles!)

So what I’m saying is, get some! Seriously. CleanSmart will change your house cleaning game. How much more simple can it get than spraying and done?! I’m so pumped that not only is it easy, but effective and safe for my whole family and the Earth. 😉

It’s now available on Amazon Prime too!!

Let me know what you think!

Rain Lamp

January 13, 2009 at 9:42 am (Projects) (, , , , , , , , , , , , , , , )

After some research I quickly learned that the lamp I recieved from my grandparents (posted the other day) is called a Rain Lamp. The lamp uses mineral oil and was invented by Darrell H. Johnson. Once I figured out what exactly the lamp did, how to clean it, and what to put in it, I started in on the daunting task of cleaning the mess.

The lamp had sat for years and years in my grandparents’ garage. They got sick of it in their house, but couldn’t completely part with it. Being sticky with oil, the lamp collected a thick layer of dirt and grass being in a garage for so long. So…

I started by wiping the entire lamp off with a wet cloth. It cleaned the dirt, but nothing really removed the grease. I used a small amount of soap next. I also used both wet and dry Q-tips to reach the statue indside. Overall, the cleaning alone took a few hours.

But, after putting some elbow grease into the project, it was ready to hang!  We finished hanging the lamp last night.  The lamp looks good in the space, but everything else in that area is starting to look a bit cluttered.  I will have to do some moving there.  But, check out the lamp!




If you have any suggestions on rearranging so it isn’t so cluttered over there, just let me know!

eHow To The Rescue

January 8, 2009 at 10:14 am (Projects) (, , , , , , , , , , , , , , , )

My grandmother gave me a tiny cast iron skillet the other day.  I know that these pans are much sought after, but have never owned one.  Although this one is just a baby she said you could use it for an egg or just to hang on the wall.  So, I was going to do both.  But, the skillet has some rust problems.  I know that you can removed rust from other metals using steel wool, but how to remove it from cast iron?  I looked it up on eHow.  I haven’t tried it yet, but they do have instrucitons for rust removal:

1. Depending on the pan’s size, pour 2 to 4 tbsp. salt into the middle of the pan. Add an equal amount of vegetable oil.
2. Scrub the pan vigorously with a folded paper towel, concentrating on the rusted spots but covering all surfaces with the oil and salt mixture. Add more salt or oil as needed.
3. For more serious rust spots, scrub with fine steel wool.
4. Wash the pan with dishwashing liquid and rinse well with hot water. Dry completely.
This seems easy enough.  I will give it a try.  eHow also had instructions for “seasoning”  a cast iron skillet.  This will keep it rust-free and non-stick.  Who knew?  I will have to do this too:
1. A well-seasoned cast-iron pan will resist rust and create a virtually nonstick surface for cooking. To season it, brush vegetable oil lightly over all its surfaces.
2. Heat the pan in an oven at 250 degF (120 degC) for 1 hour, recoating it with more oil after 30 minutes.
3.Wipe the pan well with paper towels and let it cool completely before using it.
4. To preserve this natural, protective coating, do not use soap when cleaning a seasoned pan. Instead, scrub it with salt and oil, rinse it with hot water, then dry it completely over low heat before storing it.
The full link is here:  Thanks eHow!  I will post before and after pictures of how this process works.  Here is the tiny little skillet:
