If you've read my Blog for any length of time you have seen me post about many Purex products in the past.   I've been a BIG  fan of Purex Natural Elements because it's been a great way to go green and not have to compromise on how clean my laundry gets.

Works with all washing machines, including High-Efficiency. It  has made an appearance in my house at the MOST PERFECT TIME.

@FullCircleHome is making #Springcleaning fun & it's #earth-friendly too! #tryazon #productreview

Spring is finally here, and you know what that means... time for a good house cleaning! EVERYONE'S FAVORITE!!! (BAZINGA

It can be a much more enjoyable task if you are equip with the right you take much thought into the cleaning tools you use?

  •  What is the make-up of your cleaning solutions?
  •  How long have you used the same duster?
  •  What are your sponge and dishcloths made of?
  •  Are your brushes doing the job well?

Thankfully, at  Full Circle an innovative and eco-friendly  brand has thought in detail about these questions. Every product is made by using safe, plant-based materials, and by paying close attention to every detail of the cleaning task at hand. Their cleaning products will make you fall in love with cleaning.

I was invited to try out some of these great products with family & friends through Tryazon - great site to apply to host parties trying out the latest products and sharing your opinion about them.

Before we even started cleaning we looked through the product catalog and wrote out a wish list. Their contents is beyond cleaning they carry items to stay hydrated, organizers, and composting-they have an odor-free kitchen compost collector that was at the top of my list.

Although they all are spectacular products I was able to try. Two pieces stood out  a little more to me-  The replaceable glass cleaner and the microfiber duster.

Glass Cleaner:
  • nice long handle for tall glasses
  • cellulose sponge 
  • stands on end for quick dry
  • replacement head

Microfiber Duster:

  • microfiber head is like a magnet collecting dust
  • flexible head
  • replacable head that can be machine washed!

Now on to cleaning-to get started we had to mix up a few of the recipes Full Circle came up with to fight grease and grime with some pretty common household ingredients.



1 cup vinegar
1 cup water
juice of 1/2  Lemon

6 tablespoons of baking soda
3 tablespoons of warm water
1 tablespoon castile soap

1/4 cup water
1/2 tablespoon castile soap
5 drops sweet orange oil
3 drops cedarwood oil
3 drops lemon oil

Now Bring on the dust & dirt -WE ARE READY!


When the main cleaning party was done -the dirt still shows up  and it's great to have my Full Circle products to attack!

When the cook is a little sloppy in the kitchen!

When the Soccer stars forget to take off their cleats.

I'm loving these stylish tools designed to make clean-up easy and contribute to a healthier planet also.

My Dirty Laundry

If you overhear this  A LOT you need to check out mu review and giveaway for Purex  Plus Clorox2  

Raining in a new fashion accessory for Spring/Summer 2016 @ShedRain1947

In our neck of the woods we say it's "May or May NOT RAIN" 

We don't let a few drops of rain put a damper on our style. Dressing chic on a rainy day is not much of a  challenge anymore, thanks to a ton of super cute waterproof wardrobe options. But, we cannot forget about making a statement and topping off our look with an equally fashionable umbrella!

 ShedRain will have you covered in rain. They also keep you in the shade during a Sun Shiny Day.  Their designers have set the bar high for a fashionable season. Their innovative designs and fashion forward style, includes abstract prints, floral, dots, geometric patterns, and colors to compliment every style.  One of my  "clear" winners is the Bubble Auto Open Umbrella you can see out, but rain can't get in this is great for walks or kids soccer games.

I love the easy auto open button on the umbrella. These are easy to carry. They stay close with the nice snap and polyurethane leather handle is comfortable to grip. You look every bit the fashionista with the umbrella closed as you do with it open.
