Cleaning Children’s Toys

Children = dirt and germs.  Just ask any parent.  But when cleaning do you want to use chemicals or a cleaning solution that has been around ‘forever’?

You have probably heard of running vinegar through your coffee machine to clean it out.  You don’t want soap stuck in the tubing and ending up with soapy coffee, LOL!  What do you do with that hot vinegar-water?

I use it to clean!

Hot vinegar water does a wonderful job on any tough job, and it is pet/child safe.  Grab a pair of rubber gloves and off we go!  Here are before and after shots of Ms. Diva’s favorite noisy toy.







Much better!

  1. You were too sweet to comment on my tearfully written post about missing my family. I never considered family could be a stumbling block until a mentor told me about being on mission in Australia as his grandfather passed. It broke my heart, but clicked on the 'duh' moment.
    I too have moments of wanting to tell God, hey wait a second, can't I grow up before we all go to heaven? It makes me trust in Him even more. Phew.
    Thanks for sharing! It really means a lot! :) And on a side note, my mom, and maybe dad, are visiting me on Wednesday! yay!

  2. I am a huge vinagar user - I even used it to rinse my hair - cheaper and no chemicals and it works the same. RV living is more cleaning and I just put a sprayer on my vinagar bottle and go to town. It works for getting rid of bad smells too...
    Great article and listen people because she knows what she is talking about!!

While blog hopping recently, I came across this fantastic tip listed on Be Our Best.  Jill has compiled her Top 10 Blogging Tips in one place to help others out there in blogland.  Most of them I had heard of before.  But she had one on her list that I have only seen a couple times in practice, and have not heard a how-to do it before.Number 6: Add a clickable signature to your comments.If you add the following text to the bottom of the comments you leave for other bloggers, whatever text you insert for “Your Text Here” will be clickable.  You have to switch out “{“ and “}” with “<” and “>” then it will work.  Remember to also change the “Your Blog Address” part, LOL! {a href= }YOUR TEXT HERE {/a}Bonus Tip ~ I use Notepad to store all the html codes I use on a regular basis {the direct link code for my signature image, color codes, etc.}.  I added the above code to my Notepad page, edited it with my information, and saved it.  Now all I have to do …

Christmas is coming...

Working through some Christmas items to list on, my Etsy store. I will be taking custom orders through Dec. 1st.  Also, getting back into the swing of things by participating in two craft fairs this holiday season. 

Planner Tabs and Dashboard

Post-it's tabs are super easy to add and move if you need to change where there are placed. I find that after placing them, I may find it easier to see them further over or on the other side of the page. 

Seeing so many different ways to use tabs on the top, sides, and bottoms of their planner has given me ideas. And when you find one way doesn't work great, switch the location until you do find the perfect location for the way you use them. 

After this layout, I moved stuff around....

Now the tabs for project lists, H's B-day, next Christmas are on the bottom of the pages. Nothing blocks the,  since the above layout I also switched the monthly layouts to behind the DISFish weekly pages I use.  The teal/blue month tabs are on the first page of the DISFish which includes that month's information.  The monthly tabs on the side are for the two-page monthly sprees by Daytimer that came with this binder. Helps to see the month laid out in that way when on the phone making appo…
