How to Erase Chalk Markers Easily

How to Erase Chalk Markers Easily

Have you joined the chalkboard craze?  It seems like everywhere you look you see chalkboard labels, framed chalkboards, even entire walls painted with chalkboard paint. When I first started seeing the labels a few years ago, I could hardly believe people would want to label anything with chalk.  Without revealing too much about my age, I remember loving when it was my turn to clap erasers for my teachers.  Do you remember the clouds of dust?  I do!  I certainly didn’t want all that chalk dust in my house. But happily, chalk markers were invented!  Labeling bins and baskets with […]

Fish Foam Window Cleaner Giveaway

Fish Foam Window Cleaner Giveaway on Organizing Homelife

I can probably bet what you’re thinking by the title of this post.  Fish what?  That’s pretty much what I thought when the folks from Fish Window Cleaning contacted me about reviewing their product, Fish Foam. Of course the name grabbed my attention, but after looking at the product, I decided it might be worth a review.  One thing I don’t like about the window cleaner I have used for years is that it drips down the glass and runs all over the frame.  It’s especially frustrating when cleaning picture frames or mirrors.  Fish Foam sprays as a foam that […]

Use Office Products to Organize Bathroom Cleaning Supplies

Mail sorter to organize

How many times have you gone to wipe down your toilet and wondered about the last time you cleaned.  Did you use the green sponge for the toilet and the blue one for the sink, or vice versa?  Or was it the pink? I use a toilet brush to clean the bowl and a sponge to wipe all around the outside, seat and top.  After wiping that down, I definitely want to use a different sponge to clean the sink! It doesn’t seem like it should be a big deal to remember, in fact it seems a little OCD to […]

My Favorites Friday #7 ~ Cleaning Tips

Rubber Glove Protector

Welcome to My Favorites Friday!  This week I am highlighting some of my favorite cleaning tips.  I hope you are inspired and your spring cleaning is made a bit easier! The first seven tips are courtesy of Real Simple.  I just love Real Simple – they offer tips that are so aptly reflective of the company name. One of my most favorite smells is the fresh scent of sheets that are right out of the dryer (or just off the clothesline if you are really an amazing mama)!  But they sure do get that “stale” closet smell after they’ve been […]
