A Blog Buddy Megan that I read posted some really great questions:
Do you like Glass Plus or Windex better?
I use the cheapo depot for most of my "cleaning products" However I do use Mr. Clean Multipurpose Antibacterial Solution for many many things. I usually buy it and dilute it in a spray bottle for my bathrooms and kitchen. It is pretty cheap and lasts a long time when you dilute it! I have been toying with the idea of going natural. www.thesimpledollar.com has some great homemade cleaning ideas that are natural.
Do you prefer powder detergent or liquid?
I use liquid. I actually buy in bulk at Sams my Tide with Bleach. I like the bottle that it comes in from Sams because it has a spout and I can just store above my washer and push the button.
Which detergent do you think keeps colors and whites brightest?
I was born and raised on Tide with Bleach. It may be a little more expensive but I never use bleach or hardly any other stain remover and my clothes always come out clean.
What stain remover do you think works best?
I use Shout.
Is there a hair dryer or brush out there that really minimizes frizz or saves you time?
I bought a hair dryer that really saves me quite a bit of time. It is much more powerful than my old one and it cut a few minutes off drying my hair (it's super thick!). It is from Wal-Mart I can't think of the name right now. I also bought a large rolling brush that seems to let air flow through it well. Again not sure of the name right now.
What air purifier do you have and or like or don't like?
I have an air purifier than doubles as a fan in our bedroom. It is from Lowes and it has washable filters. This was very important to me so that I don't have to keep buying new filters.
Do you keep all your DVDs in their case?
Yes. They go in drawers in our buffet tv stand. We are a bit weird, they are in alphabetical order by type. For example all movies are together, all tv series are together, home movies, Wii games, and x-box games.
Do you wear shoes in your house or do you take them off at the door?
Shoes are unfortunately permitted in our house. The men in my life all have a tendency to stomp mud and grass through my house and it makes me so mad! I have been toying with the idea of getting two benches with cubbies to have at the front and back door and having a no shoes allowed house. Our hardwood floors are constantly dirty! I have to sweep nearly every day! I am just not sure how you enforce that in the beginning? Any ideas?
What do you think helps prevent freezer burn the best?
I don't know, but I would love to know! For our chicken breasts we buy steroid free, free range and so it comes in a meat package all together. I take each breast and wrap it in plastic wrap then store in a vacuum seal ziploc bag (which I reuse since no raw chicken ever touches). I like the convenience of having them individually frozen.
Do you drink bottled water or do you have a purifier on your faucet?
I am anti-plastic bottles! I recently went to the city land fill for the first time and it was an eye opener. Since then we recycle recycle recycle! We have always had a purifier on our faucet it makes life easier.
Do you use an address book or have an address book program on your computer?
No address book. I just bought a new day planner and I am trying to get addresses into it. I am always texting people and asking them for their address!
Any other household tips you have would be greatly appreciated!
