Pin-spired Link Up!


Pinspired Thursday





Today I'm linking up with the ever-so-sweet Kodi over at A Brighter Yellow for Pin-spired! 


My latest obsession with Pinterest is natural cleaners! 


This is what started it all:






Instructions from The Nest:

Vanilla Extract

Clean the microwave and leave it smelling sweet with this household trick! Mix 2 cups of water and 1 teaspoon of vanilla extract in a microwave-safe container, and zap it on high for five minutes. When it's done, remove the container and wipe down the interior of the oven. Any gunk should slide right off.
Guess what? It worked! Like a charm! And for the rest of the day my house smelled like warm vanilla! YUM! 

Proof? 


Sadly, I don't have a before picture but I PROMISE it was NAS-TY!!! Ick. I'm grossed out just thinking about it! 

Meet my new arsenal of products: 

LOTS more posts on these guys headed at you! And not just for cleaning! 

My new favorite trick - I scrub my hands with a smidge of baking soda & water (I make a paste with it) after I use my sunlabs self tanner - and viola! No more discolored palms!! It doesn't dry out my hands either!

As much as you love green cleaning, I think you would really like Shaklee products. I'm in love with them!

I totally just tweeted you but I'm trying to get better at actually commenting on BLOGS, instead of just on twitter! LOL! Love this post and I am soooo copying your microwave cleaning trick!

What? I tired this and...nothing. I was so annoyed. I was expecting my whole house to smell delish. I think im going to have to try it again. Maybe I missed something??

I love these too! I want to try the laundry detergent so bad, if it saves me money and gets Mr's work clothes clean I will be all over it!
