Borax!! And a GIVEAWAY!!!



Hey guys!!
Here is another awesome opportunity for you to WIN!! I love being able to share fabulous products with my readers and I appreciate that you are still my readers!

With that being said, I have another GIVEAWAY and an an opportunity for you to WIN cash and prizes!

So, Borax...I'm sure you have all heard of it in some kind of way. A friend of mine visited me recently and saw the box sitting on the table and asked "Isn't this the stuff to kill rats?" In another form yes! Borax has many terrific uses around the house. Below is a list of uses that I have gathered from various sources just so you know how MAGICAL this stuff is! These are in addition to being a natural laundry detergent booster! Borax softens hard water and allows your detergent to work at it's full capacity. I know awesome!
Have you ever used Borax? If so, I would love to know the ways that you have used it!

Cleaning Window and Mirrors: Dissolve 2 T. Borax in 3 C. water. Dip sponge in solution to clean windows and mirrors. You’ll be delighted by the streak free shine.
Toilet Bowl Cleaner: Pour 1 C. Borax in toilet bowl and let stand overnight (lid down to keep out pets). Use brush to wipe away grime the next day. Works great on hard water and rust stains.
Sanitize Garbage Disposals: Pour 3 tablespoons of Borax down the drain and let it sit for an hour. Turn on the disposal, flush with hot tap water. Repeat once/month.
Rug Stains: Dampen area, rub in Borax. Let dry and vacuum. Remember to test a small inconspicuous area of your rug first for color fastness.
Fresh Smelling Rugs/Carpets: Spray a fine mist of water onto your rug, sprinkle on Borax. Vacuum when dry. This method will also kill fleas on your rug.
Urine odor and stains: Same as rug stains, great for pet areas and toddler mattresses.
Fabric: Soak a sponge in a solution of ½ C. Borax dissolved in 2 C. hot water. Rub solution into affected area. Let soak until stain disappears (several hours), rinse well.  For clothing, soak garment in solution of 2 C. Borax to 2 quarts water.
Fine China: Add ½ C. Borax to your dish water for clean and sparkling China.
Weeds: Sprinkle Borax into the cracks of your sidewalk to prevent weeds. Be careful not to get any on your desirable plants, it will eliminate them too.
Dishwasher: Add a tablespoon of Borax to your detergent cup to eliminate water spots on your dishes/glasses.
Pots and Pans: Borax and water will clean your aluminum pots & pans.
Pest Control: A small amount of Borax mixed with powdered sugar will act as pest control. Ants, cockroaches and other creepy crawlers who eat the substance will die as a result. (Apparently, this is not because it’s a toxic substance but rather because Borax is very sharp to an insect and will damage their exoskeleton.)
Drain Cleaner: Mix Borax with boiling water to pour down a blocked drain. Grease melts away.
Cat Litter: Borax mixed in your cat’s litter box will control odor.
Scouring Powder Solution: ¼ C. Borax, ¼ C. Baking Soda, ! ½ C. hot Water. Stir until mixed for a perfect Tub, Toilet and Sink Cleaner.
Stainless Steel/Porcelain Sinks: Combine ¼ C. Lemon juice with 1 C. Borax to form a paste that will remove stains

Dial Vitamin Boost Giveaway

Howdy folks! Dial sent me a bottle of their new Vitamin Boost Body Wash to test out. They even sent me a few coupons to give away to you guys! Don't they ROCK?! Yeah they do, and so does this new body wash! I got the product a few weeks ago, but as is with most things that come to my house, it just sat in the living room unopened. Not because I didn't want to open it...but I've been a little short on time. Even with several snow days it seems like I just don't have enough hours in a day. Does that mean I don't wash? NOOOO. It means that this body wash just made it upstairs with me this morning! LOL I'm always skeptical about "moisturizing" body washes. I have extremely sensitive, eczema prone skin. So I really have to be careful. Even some washes that claim to be triple moisturizing dry me out and leave me wishing I had one of those cat towers to rub up against. So I finally got to test the waters with this one. Here are what this product c

Dial Baby & Kids (Giveaway)

Let me start by saying that the toddler years are fun...and a true test of faith and patience LOL! I love my little tot with everything I have in me. But every day she tests my limits in way I didn't even know were possible. I mostly laugh. She is a very spirited little girl who LOVES to be outside. I mean she will cry to go outside and sometimes all she wants to do is climb in a chair and sit on the porch and watch the cars go by. On this particular day though...(Jesus be a fence) she wanted to chase lizards, pop bubbles, shred leaves, kick her ball in the sticker bushes and throw a flower pot off the deck to see how far she could get it to go. Maybe softball is in her future, who knows LOL. That said ball ended up bursting from being repeatedly kicked in the sticker bushes... After our world wind backyard excursion, we go inside to have a snack and settle down a bit. Luckily she likes to wash her hands. I mean, she almost had that lizard! She really enjoys Dial W

Baby Magic is Here! My Birth Story

Princesses get their way. And true to form, my little princess decided that she, and only she would be in control of when she arrived. Forget about me or the doctors trying to schedule ANYTHING! **This is a long post that goes into detail. Read at your own risk.** On Sunday, July 21st...no scratch that. On Saturday, July 20th, I was having cramps. They weren't too painful and were coming only about once every hour. Honestly, I thought I had gas. I had a good bit of visitors that day and told everybody that I felt like I was going to have the baby soon. I was already on bed rest and wasn't doing much. Thanks to some awesome friends, I had enough food that all I had to do was warm it and eat it. After all of the company left, I really just wanted to lie down. So I went to bed. I was awakened maybe 3 times during the night with these "cramps." The next morning I got out of bed about 10:30am (late for me) and took a shower, hoping that the heat would soothe me.
