Using Vinegar in the Laundry: How to Whiten Whites

This post has been sponsored by Four Monks. All thoughts and opinions are my own. If anyone would have told me years ago what a struggle it would be to keep white laundry, white. . .I wouldn’t have believed them. Growing up, my mom would soak socks in bleach before washing them in a hot water wash. We did laundry on Mondays and Thursdays, and I’m pretty sure our family had some of the whitest socks on the planet. I {Read More}

How to Remove Pet Smells From Blankets

A big thank you to for sponsoring this post.  Aww. . .our furry family members. What would we do without these cuties? In return for their unconditional love we tend to their every need, we baby them, we talk to them in high pitched voices (because we think they like it) and we let them get away with some things even our children aren’t allowed to do. Are you with me? I’m guilty as charged. Meet Belle. Belle came {Read More}

It seems as if today, everyone is trying to make better choices – eating healthier, exercising more often and using “natural” cleaning products. {Read More}

Electric Eels

With school back in full swing, the excitement around learning has escalated in our house! My son started kindergarten this year and so far he’s LOVING it. The first week, he came home thrilled about some of the experiments they were doing in science class. I was ecstatic he was already doing projects like this the first week in! Truth of the matter is, this excitement around learning shouldn’t just revolve around what kids are doing at school, it should {Read More}

Spooky Expanding Ghost

Spooky ghost. Who am I kidding? This Spooky Expanding Ghost experiment isn’t really spooky at all! It’s cute, hilarious and so much fun! My almost 6-year-old is into science anything. . . and everything right now. He LOVES experiments. In fact, he received two science experiment sets for Christmas and they were his favorite gifts. . .EVER. So, he didn’t believe me when I told him we were going to inflate that limp ghost balloon hanging from the top of his {Read More}

Salt & Vinegar Potato Chips

Do you prefer salty or sweet? It depends on what kind of mood I’m in, but I’ll normally choose salty. And for gosh sakes, please don’t mix salty and sweet together! It really has to be one or the other for me.  In my opinion there should be no such thing as a sweet and sour pickle. This combo just shouldn’t exist. That’s obviously just my opinion and I’m sure many of you are throwing eggs at the screen right now, but {Read More}
