Favorite Things:

A post on a few of my favorite things



1. Okay, now I know that Fabuloso isn't a "green" product, but it's my FAVORITE cleaning product. Why? Because it WORKS and it's CHEAP. You can buy a HUGE bottle for like $2 and it lasts me about 3 months. You dilute it with water so it can be used as a spray cleaner and you can use it to mop floors with. Also: Fabuloso + Value Brand Magic Eraser will get rid of soap scum you didn't even know you had. I had a stain on the rim of the bathtub where Ya-Ya had put a sticker. When we finally got the sticker off it was very white where the sticker had been, but very scummy every where else. I tried EVERYTHING to get rid of the scummy part, but could never get it all the way cleaned off and it drove me crazy because the white part where the sticker had been was a constant reminder that the tub wasn't clean. But seriously, fabuloso sprayed on and left on for about oh... 15 seconds and then scrubbed with an el cheapo magic eraser took it off like no body's business. Which brings me to...

2. Magic Erasers.

I couldn't find a picture of the cheap brand, but seriously, save yourself the extra money because the wal-mart brand works just as well as the Mr. Clean and it's A)Cheaper, and B) You get 4 as opposed to only 2 in the box of Mr. Clean. I use them for everything.

3. This Website Not Hannah linked to it in her post for a recipe for Homemade Poptarts and I lost about 4 hours of my life over there. I want to print all the recipes. I want to make my own canned goods and corn husk wreaths and chicken bacon ranch french bread pizza. (oh yeah and on homemade bread no less). In short: I want to BE this woman. *sigh* It's now bookmarked and I keep going over there just to read and dream.

Hrm... I don't know. I know the sell it at wal-mart. I had never heard of it either buy my sister-in-law's ex's mother (did you catch that? LOL) uses it for her business which is cleaning condos in florida. I was introduced to it by Angela (my sister in law). You can find it at most dollar stores too

I had to go look it up. I love that one scent is called, "Passion of Fruits." I usually don't shop at Walmart but I love this bottle. Well, it might have to be just a Passionate Fantasy since all I use generally is vinegar and baking soda. But I imagine that it smells amazing.

Your post makes me buy Fabuloso :). By the way I like your blog, the colors. As being synesthete I live a life in colors. Synesthesia means that I see colors when I see words and numbers.
I transform this in paintings of names and birthdays.
