My blogging friend Mrs. 4444 from Half Past Kissing Time has come up with another idea for a carnival. It's called My Favorite Things and she will periodically have different editions. This week's edition is all about the bathroom.
I have a lot of favorite things all over the house, so I'm excited to be a part of this. She has stated that the things we talk about must be items that we have not received compensation for from a sponsor. Since I have never been sponsored, I think I'm pretty much free to talk about anything :)
Magic Erasers - Oh my goodness, I love my MEs. We are so close that I've been able to shorten his name to ME. I do not use any knock offs, I use the original Mr. Clean MEs. I do however, like the extra power MEs as they seem to last a bit longer and I can scrub a bit more vigorously and get the job done in moments.
MEs can clean a tub in a minute. That bathtub ring can be wiped right off with hardly any pressure. If you know me, you know that I tell everyone about a cleaning product that works. I can hardly talk about a bathroom without talking about cleaning products :)
The Absorber - a sponge like cloth that is like no other. I love love love it. I wipe down my shower/tub area with the absorber after each shower. I don't spray my shower down with any chemicals, I don't ever scrub it and I certainly don't spend more than a minute cleaning my bathroom shower area each time.
Before I turn off the water I get my absorber wet and ring it out. I turn off the water and wipe down the walls quickly, wringing the absorber out a few times. The shower is now dry, no streaks and no water spots. Once a week (or two) I bring a Magic Eraser into the shower and wipe down the tub before I turn off the shower. My shower never gets cleaned when I am fully dressed :) What's the point when I'm in there so often each week!
Ion Dandruff Solutions Clear-T Dual Action Anti-Dandruff Shampoo - My sisters told me about this product and it has completely made the flakes I get from psoriasis go away. For a long time I only used the shampoo once a week or so, but once I started using it each time I shampooed I haven't had flakes. Honestly, I never really had flakes, I had snowstorms. The storms have gone somewhere else because they aren't here! I am now a true blue believer in this ion shampoo. You can find it at Sally Beauty Supply.
I mentioned the other day that I bought a new shower curtain - I love it, too. It's a new love, but a love nonetheless.
Oh, I could go on with all the things that I find to be favorites in the bathroom, like my turby twists, but I'll end now. I could go on for a few days.
Thanks Mrs. 4444 for coming up with another great idea and I've always wanted to have a Julie Andrews blog carnival button!
Have a great week!
