Scrubbing Bubbles Action Scrubber

February 4th, 2008 by wisemama

I have been in a cleaning mood lately, and the Scrubbing Bubbles Action Scrubber has made cleaning my bathtub and shower so much easier. I have always been a fan of the Scrubbing Bubbles line of cleaners by S.C. Johnson, and I was delighted to find this new product that they have come out with on the market. If there is one thing I hate, it’s soap scum on my shower and tub walls and doors, and Scrubbing Bubbles has been the only product I have found to get rid of the dreaded stuff without the need for much, if any, elbow grease. This particular product, the Action Scrubber, eliminates the need for spray cans and extra sponges and allows you to quickly and easily get rid of dirt and soap scum with barely getting your hands wet.

The Action Scrubber basically consists of the water-repellent flexible grip handle and disposable cleaning pads that attach to the handle via two Velcro strips. The design of the Action Scrubber is great, in that the handle is very easy to grip, allows your wrist to be in a natural position when cleaning, and is flexible enough to get in corners and around curves.Scrubbing Bubbles Action Scrubber The cleaning pad contains the powerful Scrubbing Bubbles cleanser which activates with a little water and is then disposed of after using it on your whole shower and tub. I also use it to give my sink and toilet bowl a good shine before all is said and done, as there is plenty of cleaner in one disposable pad. Afterwards, there is no messy rinsing and squeezing of a sponge, and no stinky, moldy sponge to be reused later! Also, it is easy to avoid getting the cleaner on your hands since you are holding just the handle, and you don’t have to come into contact with the pad while cleaning. The best part is that it takes very little scrubbing to get the tub or shower spotless in about half the time it would take to use any other product. Anything which cuts down on my cleaning time at home gets a big thumbs up from me!

Swiffer Sweeper Vac

January 22nd, 2008 by mamawise

Swiffer Sweeper VacIf you have hardwood, tile, or vinyl floors in your home, the Swiffer Sweeper Vac is for you. I received my Swiffer Sweeper Vac complements of The Mom Blogs. So, a hearty thank you goes out to them, because I absolutely love this cleaning tool! I have tile flooring in my kitchen, foyer, and bathrooms, and thanks to my kids there are always crumbs and such all over. Originally I would sweep the floor with a broom or handheld brush, but it just seemed to spread things around more than anything – plus it was so time consuming. The Swiffer Sweeper Vac made it so easy to clean up crumbs, cherrios, hair, dust bunnies, etc. in less than a couple minutes! So much so, that it has now officially replaced my broom and dustpan.

The Swiffer Sweeper Vac is a light weight long-handled bagless vacuum that also has a swiffer dry cloth that picks up all of the fine debris on the floor, like dust and hair. The head swivels which makes it easy to clean around and under furniture. The vacuum is pretty powerful at 10.5 Amps and runs on a rechargeable battery, so it’s cordless. Basically, you keep the vac plugged in and it is ready to go whenever you need it. The battery lasts about 12 minutes before you need to recharge it, so it is most suited for smaller quick jobs.

I never gave a second thought to the everyday products I used to clean my house prior to having children. However, after my son was born I started to realize that it was practically impossible to keep my son from coming into contact with the toxic chemicals in these cleaners. Babyganics Cleaning KitSo, it was with great excitement and relief when I heard about cleaning products that are non-toxic, organic, and 100% safe to use around children, namely Babyganics.

Currently, my 8 month old is teething and has the need to chew on everything – toys, furniture, remote controls, you name it and he’s chewed on it. So, my dilemma was how to clean my house and the items with which he comes into contact, without exposing him to harmful ingredients in the standard brand-name cleaners that we use. Plus, everytime I washed my floor, I had to make sure to rinse it several times in order to try and get rid of any residue left by the standard household floor cleaner, which certainly took quite a long time to do. When I first used Babyganics, I noticed that my cleaning time was cut in half – no more need to rinse and rinse and rinse. Best of all, the Babyganics line of cleaners worked even better than the brand-name cleaners I had been using! The shine on my oven and microwave was streakless and perfect! My son even helped me test out the All-Purpose Household Cleaner when he delightfully took a crayon to my countertop. The crayon just wiped right off – no scrubbing, just Babyganics and a plain old rag. This line of cleaning products is truly fantastic and it is 100% safe!

Babyganics has four different cleaners available for all types of cleaning jobs: Tub & Tile, All-Purpose Household, Floor, and Glass & Surface. Babyganics products are available nationwide in retailers such as Babies “R” Us and in select Wal-Marts and Target stores, or you can purchase them directly from the Babyganics Website and use coupon code “hbb10″ for 10% off your entire order and free shipping on orders $30.

Babyganics is also available for purchase through Amazon.

I highly recommend Babyganics cleaners to everyone so that we can keep our children safe and healthy, and so that we can do our part in helping to reduce toxins in the environment.
