Happiness = Getting rid of SOAP SCUM!

17 Nov

I don’t think I’ve ever been this happy!! Being the Soapmaker that I am I’m always using lots of Soap.

What comes with SOAP?

SOAP SCUM, SOAP SCUM, SOAP SCUM and more Soap Scum!

That dreaded chalk like substance that you just can’t get off of the tile, shower doors or the shower floor. It’s awful well I thought it was awful until I found Fabulessly Frugal.com and their fantastic tutorial about removing Soap Scum with 3 ingredients. I have to say I was skeptical but I figured it was all of 3 ingredients and a bit of my time. So, I tried it and guess what? It Works it really works! I’m  so excited I just have to tell everyone!

If I would have known how well it would work I would have taken before & after pics. Even the hubby noticed how clean and let me say Shinny the shower floor was. And the best part is you spray and walk away for about a half an hour, then come back and wipe it down. That’s it!

So you ask, what’s the recipe?

You can click here to see the original blog post  from Fabulessly Frugal.com  or keep reading and I share their recipe!

Simple:

1 cup of Vinegar mixed w/ 1 tbsp of cornstarch heated in the microwave for approximately 1.5 to 2 minutes.

Add 2 tbsp of liquid dish soap to a sprayer bottle.

Then pour the vinegar-cornstarch solution to the sprayer bottle. Shake. Now you’re ready to spray and get rid of that dreaded SCUM!

Don’t forget to tell everyone even your cleaning person!

Happy November 1st!

I just can not believe how time fly’s!

FLY

I’ve been extremely busy with the soap business and my personal life. And I just realized at this very moment (well, probably  ten minutes ago) that it’s November 1st! It’s November 1st and I haven’t written a post in like forever.

So I started thinking what could I share with you that would be a wealth of information.  AND Boom I remembered reading this awesome blog post about *ORGANIC and what that means written by The Sirona Springs Blog. You can read the post here. You need to go and read this post! Ruth Esteves really tells you everything you need to know when it comes to ORGANIC and soap products! She is the owner of Sirona Springs onlne and the co-owner of The Nova studio where she gets to teach what she loves to do.

Anyway, I hope you do go and read her post about what ORGANIC really means!
