Cleaning My New Home With Mean Green Cleaners! #MeanGreen

Disclosure: I am a Mean Green Cleaner Ambassador. All thoughts and opinions are my own. Please see my disclosure policy) 

My family and I recently moved into a new home in August. I don’t have to tell you that moving definitely requires a lot of quality cleaning especially in the nooks and crannies of certain areas of the home that have been left uncleaned for long periods of time. Enter Mean Green Cleaners! I personally love all of the Mean Green cleaners that I have tried, but the one that I turn to again and again is the Mean Green Super Strength Cleaner & Degreaser. This product does it all! It is a powerful, multi-purpose cleaner and degreaser that can get grease out and eliminate grime from most surfaces. In fact, it even works on fabric and concrete! No wonder it has been a trusted brand for over 20 years! This is my go-to product as it can be used to clean just about everything, inside and outside the home! 

The Bathroom– Using Mean Green Super Strength Cleaner & Degreaser in the bathroom is key! Since I have a house full of boys, I don’t have to tell you that they can be quite messy when it comes to the bathroom. Because this is a multi-purpose product, it allows me to have clean toilets and sinks without putting much or little elbow grease into it. This product also works great for the shower and tub. I have found that if you spray the product on and let it set for a couple of minutes, the grime will literally wipe away! I also love the pleasant fragrance; it makes everything smell so fresh in a room that can be quite stinky!

The Kitchen– When we moved into our home, the kitchen was the room that needed the most help. Mean Green Super Strength Cleaner & Degreaser definitely lived up to its name. I was able to clean the oven, counters, sink and even floors all with this one product! The grease that had built up on the oven and stovetop was gone within just a few sprays and wipes! Once again, this product works best on grease if you spray it on then let it set for a few minutes. When you wipe it off, it will literally glide off. Cleaning has never been easier! I love how one product has many uses, yet is so powerful and effective! 

The Laundry Room– Mean Green Super Strength Cleaner & Degreaser can even be used to aid in soiled laundry and to pre-treat tough stains. You can even add add ¼ cup directly to your wash. As with any product, I would suggest that you test for colorfastness before use. How many cleaners and degreasers can you use as a pre-treater as well? This is one awesome product! 

The best part about Mean Green Cleaners? Their affordability! Mean Green Cleaners can be found at stores like your local Walmart and the Mean GreenSuper Strength Cleaner & Degreaser is priced under $3! What a deal for a product that does so many things!

Want to check out all of the Mean Green Cleaner products? They have an a product for everything! GO HERE to see the products available. Many products are available to purchase at your local retail stores, so be on the lookout the next time that you are shopping.

Review of Watermelon Ball Jr. from PlaSmart

Disclosure: I received product from PlaSmart to facilitate this post. All thoughts and opinions are my own. Please see my disclosure policy)

Even though summer may officially be over, the heat wave continues in many parts of the country. Here in Florida, the temperatures are still in the 90’s! With temps like this, our weekends are still packed full of fun at the beaches and our local pool.

The folks at PlaSmart sent my family and I their Watermelon Ball Jr. to review, and the boys have had quite the time with it! The Watermelon Ball Jr. is designed to look, feel, and behave like a watermelon in water! Real watermelons are nearly neutrally buoyant: first sinking to the bottom then slowly rising to the top, making them ideal for all kinds of water games. The Watermelon Ball Jr. lets players dribble, kick, bounce, pass, and intercept under water. This fun ball allows you to combine components of football, basketball, and rugby right in the water!

How does the Watermelon Ball Jr. work? You simply fill the ball with water and get your game on! The extremely durable vinyl membrane stands up to intense action, features that are sorely missing from real watermelons. As you can see from the photo above, my son Drew has had so much fun dribbling the Watermelon Ball Jr. in the pool! I personally love the vibrant and bright colors that allow you to see the ball under water easily. 

There is still time to enjoy a Watermelon Ball Jr. with your family! I would love to hear your experience and how much fun that you have with this fun toy if you purchase one. You can buy your very own Watermelon Ball Jr. HERE. Forget the standard beach ball at your next pool party. Wouldn’t this be a great addition instead? With this ball, you are sure to be a rockstar at your kid’s party!

Productivity Tips That Help You To Make The Most of Your Work From Home Life

(All posts may contain affiliate links or sponsored content. Please see my disclosure policy)

Most of the people are opting to work from home for many reasons. In fact, freelancing is not freedom from work, but, freedom to work. All like a clean and cozy space to work. They need it as a comfortable one as well as a convenient one that helps to enhance their creativity and productivity. One can make a cozy and stylish office space at a little budget and an affordable price to make an elegant and sophisticated space to work from your home.

Changing the room layout with a bit of greenery

Transformation of room layout is a good idea to enhance the beauty of your office space at home with zero budgets. One can change the room layout and furniture and install outdoor plants and trees on teapots or work tables to make the home office more sophisticated. Placing the sofa near the longest wall of your living space offers more room for your home office. It may be a desk or a cabin, arrangement of furniture makes the room look more spacious. Arranging the artificial outdoor topiary plants provides the room an eco-friendly and ambient look if you cannot afford a space or time to grow plants in your office cabin or desk space at home. Placement of large artificial plants in the living room makes a room beautiful at your small budget even if you reside in a rental home and you cannot alter the room permanently.

These steps make your room look ventilated if you can make these simple moves which cost you a few bucks.

The convenient setting for sitting or standing space

Research says that sitting continuously for one hour is equal to smoking 5 cigars a day. Sitting sedentarily causes many health issues, and we may feel bored at sitting for hours to work. Arranging or modifying furniture that allows you to sit or stand and work is a good idea to avoid sedentary hours at the maximum. If you feel exhausted standing all the time, you can fold the extended bar of your chair to sit and work.

Elegant Desk Space from a closet

You can turn your old-school closet into a work desk and place plastic ivy leaves as decors to make your closet desk more beautiful. Even the idea looks simple, it works well if you need a less space at home to get through your work. You can change the closet into work cabin and use the doors like small office doors to make your business more hassle-free. The closets are useful to make space for books, computer, and stationary. You can paint the closets with bright colors like orange and green to give your cabin a gorgeous look.

Room Partitions or curtains

Use room partitions or curtains to provide more space for office space at home. You can change your living room into a home office by using curtains as room dividers. These are affordable moves if you cannot make solid changes and if you rent the place for a limited period. Bright colored curtains in the living room give a sophisticated separation between the home and office in your living room.

Floating wall unit

A floating wall unit can be installed in your home to part the home space and office space and make your room more spacious to work. Installing large artificial trees near the floating walls make the place a more enchanting one to reside in and work. Some floating wall units are movable, and you can move them according to your wish if necessary.

If you need a family office at home

If you need to install a family office at your home, you can change it accordingly by small changes in the organization of the furniture. Use of L-shaped desks and organizers make your task easy. If you can afford for modern furniture, it will be a more encouraging and comfortable move as you can alter the modern furniture according to your convenience. This idea will be adored by the younger members of the family as well. On the other hand, modern furniture is recyclable and don’t harm the environment as synthetic plastic is recycled to prevent pollution. It is the idea to promote plant more trees and save the existing ones by manufacturing eco-friendly furniture from recycled wood or boards or synthetic plastic.

If you have a tiny house

If you have a tiny house and you have less storage space, you can change your home office a more spacious one with sticky organizers and storage shelves. This idea goes well if you hail at a rented space. This is a cost-saving idea and helps you to save time and money as you have to just stick the shelves or fold them according to your needs. Hanging organizers are also available in the market to save the storage space. You can change the decors like hanging organizers as these are available in a variety of designs.

Bedroom turned into office

Most people like to work in their bedroom at the comfort at the need of the hour. By coloring a wall of the room according to your taste or installing decorative wall panels and organizers or hanging shelves, your bedroom gives you a cozy office space if you have less space in the living room. You can wake up to a coffee and work from your bedroom and enjoy the tranquility of the morning and enhance your creativity.

Wall Mount Furniture

Use of wall-mount furniture is a good idea to save the living space if you have a lesser room for the office space at home. Wall-mounted furniture helps you a lot to save the room space and make the furniture as a good room décor indeed.

Furniture that occupies a lesser space

You can opt for furniture that occupies less space or foldable ones to save room space and avoid the congested look of your living room.

The above tips are helpful in giving your home office a spacious and elegant look at an affordable budget as well as providing an eco-friendly look.

    Hip Hip Hooray! The kids are finally back in school and we are adjusting to our new schedule! I don’t know about you, but those first few weeks of school are tiring! It can be challenging getting everyone up early, packing lunches, making sure homework is done, etc… Thanks to the folks at Entertainment One for supplying my son Brady with some PJ Masks goodies, so that I could brighten his mood with cupcakes, a t-shirt, backpack and other goodies when he arrived home from school!
