And really, don't we need all the help we can get, in the cleaning department? Well, most of us.
Lately, I have been in a cleaning mood, which is odd, because I'm not usually in a cleaning mood. And I really don't enjoy cleaning very much, much to my husband's surprise. He told me about a month ago that he "thought I enjoyed cleaning." Yes, yes, this man of mine, after 8 years of marriage, thought that I only cleaned because I ENJOYED it. Not because, it's, you know, necessary.
I have recently discovered a few products that I love so much, that I thought it was my duty to share these products with you. Three of these have one thing in common - they smell amazing. One does not smell amazing and only one was given free to me to review on my blog. so there.
So, let's start off with product number one, shall we?
The All Purpose Cleaner - by Method, found at Target.
Just call me Johnny Come Lately when it comes to Method, but I don't care, better late than never. This product is amazing, I purchased it in lavender and loved the scent. It's gentle, yet there. And the cleaning power?
I give it ten stars, ten bright, shiny, lavender scented stars.
But wait, this product gets better, it's ECO-FRIENDLY and kid friendly. Everything Method makes is safe and non-toxic. I do believe the Method brand was featured on Oprah. Consider me a Method Convert.

And he smells amazing.
Like almonds, while you clean. Can you think of anything more sensational than that fantastic almond smell while you dust? I don't think I could be more excited to get rid of Pledge.
PLUS, now when my kids play on the surfaces in which I just cleaned, I can be rest assured that their play area is chemical free.
A Nice Big Sigh of Relief. (and the smell, oh the smell!)
Which leads me to product number three -
Now this product was sent to me to review on this here blog, and it's dish washing liquid.
Dawn and Simple Pleasures have combined forces in this product, I am a huge fan of Simple Pleasure fabric softeners, so I really couldn't pass on trying out this product.
I'm delighted to say that the Dawn and Simple Pleasure union is a wise one. I love the smell of this dish soap. Maybe even a little too much. The scent I have is Water Lily and Jasmine, it's a beautiful scent. HOWEVER, the air freshener in the bottom of the bottle? Is just too strong, which for some may be a good thing, but for me, it's so overwhelming that I would find myself covering the air freshener holes with tape. Then again, I'm particular like that.
I do hope Dawn decides to come out with just the Simple Pleasures Dawn sans air freshener (maybe they do, what do I know?), but if they don't? I will still buy the soap. It's that yummy.
And finally, product number four -
Unlike the others, this product does not smell good and it's probably pretty toxic, but it cleans like you would not believe. Comet Spray Gel. I grew up using the Comet Powder for my kitchen sink. Even after I got married I used the powder because it could make my stainless steel sink shine so bright that even Brian would notice when I cleaned the sink. (which says a lot, considering he doesn't even notice when I rearrange living room furniture) But the Comet Powder was such a mess and it always made my hands stink.
I was hopeful when I saw the Comet commercial on TV, hopeful, yet skeptical. But then, I sprayed the spray gel all over my sink, I let it sit for about five minutes, I sprayed it clean and would you believe? The Shine! The Shine! It was there! It cleaned the sink while I mopped, it's like having a maid!
Oh, I was a happy woman.
So, there you have it. I hope you find this post to be fulfilling, rewarding, beneficial and well, not boring, because that would make me sad, and I aim to please.
So, go forth and rid of that mess!
