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! 

What do you use hot vinegar water to clean?


  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!!

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…

Planner Sections

Order in my Palmer (right now) goes like this...Dashboard, wrapped in two verses printed on card stock, Food tracker, 2016 DIYFish yearly calendar for melds tracking,  Weekly (DIYFish Weekly Project) Monthly two-page layouts, Financial Freedom pages, Fitness pages, Project pages (special event planning pages), Church Team pages. 

I have a steno pad in the back pocket for the ongoing, never ending to-do list and what purchases are needed for those tasks. 
A second stern pad is tucked into the front pocket for me brain dump as I think of things during the day.
