Affresh to the rescue






Recently I was able to try out some new appliance cleaners through the #Affreshcrowd by being a member of Crowdtap. We use the affresh cleaner for our Coffee Maker first. We live where there is lime and hard water so having a product that can keep our Coffee Makers clean and running is very important to the coffee drinkers in our family. Just add a tablet and water and run through your coffee maker. Yes this works on single serve makers as well. 

Then it was onto the dishwasher tablet cleaner which I gave to my daughter since we don't currently have a dishwasher. To my knowledge it was the first time they cleaned their dishwasher. There dishwasher already looked clean but now it is super clean and they were able to run it through when they did a regular load so they didn't have to waste water, electricity, or time. 

Last but not least was the garbage disposal tablet. We don't have one but we put this in our sink drain because we just moved and one of the first things I like to do is clean the drains. Every time we went into the kitchen you could smell something funky. The smell was coming from the drain. Now that we have put one of these tablets our sink doesn't give off that unpleasant odor.

When you spend good money on an appliance you want to make sure to take good care of your investment by referring to your owners manual for care. Keeping your appliances clean will go a long way into keeping them running for years to come.

What I love about these products most is that they are super easy to use and I can find them at my favorite online store Amazon.

Making slime with foam balls


OK so I am sure if you have children you have either been making slime or your child has been watching how to make slime. We have made slime for a long time starting with our now 27 year old son. Then all of his siblings and child care children after him. 

One of our simple recipes are below. For this fall the girls wanted to try some colorful slime with colorful styro foam balls, and since this set also had a package of white I thought we would also make a winter themed crunchy slime too. 

We have just moved so our arts and craft supplies are not all here yet but once they we are going to get back into making crafts on a regular basis again. You can find affiliate links for the foam balls and the ingredients for the below slime towards the bottom of this post. 




You will need a bowl, spoon, 1/4 measuring cup, Elmers Glue (although you could use any white school glue),  Liquid Starch (we buy Sta-Flow because it is the only brand I know of, but if you have another liquid starch available I am sure that would work just fine too), and some tap water. Food Coloring if you want to make different colors.

1. Put a 1/4 cup of glue in the bowl.
2. Then a 1/4 cup of water.
3. Now add your food coloring if using. 
    To make lavender we used 2 drops of red and 3 drops of blue.
4. Then Stir until combined.
5. Next add 1/4 cup of the Liquid Starch.



This is what it looks like hanging from a serving spoon.
