New fave scent!

Bath & Body Works Sweet Pea has been a long-time favorite mine, but i'm always looking for something new to switch things up a bit. Enter B&BWs Holiday Collection - in Pink Sugarplum. Mmmm.. it is such a yummy fragrance! It has a real candy-like scent to it. You can smell the sugared plums, but also a tinge of tangerine. I love B&BWs Triple Moisture Body Creams, so i picked up that, the reg. shower gel, and their foaming anti-bacterial soap (another favorite product!).  If you're not a big fan of the floral fragrances and are more into the fruity stuff, give this one a try! Looks like the cream is sold out on their website, but try in store for after holiday stock, or ebay if you don't mind purchasing on there. Isn't the packaging just too cute?!

Scrubbing Bubbles Toilet Bowl Cleaner

LOVE this product! It really does help keep the bowl fresh and clean! It comes with a disposable dispenser, which houses a gel that you just press into the inside of the toilet bowl (see in the pic below). It's kinda like making a spritz cookie! Then whenever you flush, the water goes over the gel, activating the cleaning product. It's really great when you have company coming short notice, to not feel like - ack, i gotta freshen up the toilet! With this product, it already is. I do clean the seat and all in between, but the gel lasts about a week. Then i do a regular clean with a toilet brush and put a new "dot" of gel in :)

What do you use to clean your toilet?

Laundry Stain Removers

Hi there! Thanks for taking the time to stop by my blog!  What's the best way to learn about new products? Usually from your friends and/or family, right? So I thought I would share some faves, and i plan to throw in a little "real life" stuff along the way too :)  (Please note: I am not paid to promote these products)

I want to start off with both an old and a new favorite of mine. I've been using the Spray and Wash Stain Stick for nearly 20 years - ever since I still lived at home with my parents. My Mom used it, so that was how i got started. And let me tell you - there was NEVER a stain that thing couldn't get out! From ketchup to even pen marks, it always did the trick. It has recently been changed and while it still works the same, i just cannot get over the fact that it looks like a stick of deodorant now!
I haven't noticed much difference in the newer product, which is good - don't you just hate when they change an old favorite? It's never as good! Another great thing about this product is that you can treat it and leave it for a good week. I normally never wait that long - i tend to stain treat and do the load that day - but i have waited a few days and it still worked like a charm. The only thing about the stain stick is that it is a little more time consuming if you have a particularly messy clothing item - you have to cover every surface with the stuff.

Which leads me to my new fave, that i use on the more soiled items. Three words - I. Have. BOYS. :)

My new favorite laundry stain remover is the Clorox Laundry Stain Remover with Foaming Action. This stuff is pretty fun (about as fun as stain removing can get!) - it totally does foam up, so a little can go a long way. It is safe on all colors. You just spray away, pop the items in the laundry and poof - stains are gone! I haven't found a stain this little spray can't tackle either. There is nothing more frustrating than pulling an item from the washer, only to find that all of your pre-treating efforts have been thwarted!
So if you're looking for a good stain removal product, give one (or both) of these a try. You won't be disappointed.

Do you have a different laundry stain remover that you like? If so, please share in the comments section. Thanks :)
