But the most exciting thing is today is Earth Day and that means my first Earth Day Blog Hop!!!!!
*** Please note: If you want the full Hop experience, you need to start at A Home Made by Kiki, trust me, it's worth it! ***If this is your first time visiting, we'd like to welcome you to Domestic Deadline (by we, I mean my various personalities)! Please feel free to check out my little piece of blogland and leave nice comments if you find something you like ;) If you're a regular, well, you're welcome too (you can also look around and leave nice comments)!
So, what's this blog hop all about, you ask? Well... good things for the environment of course... keep reading and you can win some of those good things for the environment... and a little dirty talk...
Did that get your attention? All right, get your head out of the toilet, I didn't mean that kind of dirty talk! I meant this kind of dirty talk:
Yup, I let it go for a few weeks just for this blog hop. Why? Traditionally, if I let the toilet get this bad I'd have to give in to a toilet bowl cleaner with bleach in it and still scrub with all my might. But a few weeks back I found out about Shaklee which offers non-toxic and natural cleaning products that are safe, powerful, Earth friendly and just plain SMART!
I put two drops of Basic H2 into the bowl and swirled it around, let it sit for a few minutes (I would have done that with bleach based products too) and much to my surprise, not much muscle power was needed to get that nasty ring off.
But I couldn't just stop there. I wiped down the rest of the toilet with one Basic H2 wipe. When cleaning wipes first entered the market, I jumped on the band-wagon, they made cleaning that much faster. It didn't take too long for me to realize how many were ending up in a land fill and returned to a spray and washable cleaning rags. The wipes made it so much easier for me to get the girls to help with bathroom cleaning, but there was one for the mirror, a different one (or three when the girls clean) for the counter and another one or two for the toilet. The Basic H2 wipes have solved this dilemma in our house, currently reffered to as magic wipes by the girls. They were so relieved to be able to use wipes again, and surprised to find they could start with the mirror, move to the counter and finish with the toilet all with one wipe (that's why they are magic).
See, now the whole toilet is nice and clean and no harmful chemicals were used in the process, that make me happy.
