Simplify Your Life – My Green Fills Laundry Soap – The Last Jug You'll Ever Own!

When it comes to doing laundry you have a plastic jug that holds your choice of liquid, powder or pods.  When it’s empty you buy another jug, then another, etc.  All of those plastic jugs adding to the landfill.  Not good!  So not good!  I’ve recently been introduced to a company that has not only a powerful laundry cleaner but they also have created refills in rice paper pouches.  One jug and done!  And… it can be delivered right to your door!  It’s Selestial’s My Green Fills – The Last Jug You Will Ever Own.

My Green Fills

 

Effectiveness of the product is the first thing I look for then I go for the price.  I feel My Green Fills is a great deal – it works and the price is right.  To begin, you purchase the jug (the last jug you will ever own!) and the soap to clean 50 loads of laundry.  The initial cost is $12.00.  When time comes for more product the refill costs $5.00 – $8.00 (with the convenient auto-ship option) or $9.00 for individual pouches.  There’s no shipping & handling charge either!  And I’m not adding another plastic jug to the landfill!

My Green Fills 5

Selestial was founded by Ruth Smith – “I was living the ‘green life’ before green was cool.”  She created the My Green Fills product line because some of her children suffered from severe skin allergies. “The only ‘green washed’ off-the-shelf options were expensive and ineffective, so I made my own.”  My Green Fills are 100% naturally non-toxic and hypoallergenic.  Check out the ingredient list:  Sodium Carbonate, Sodium Bi-Carbonate, Sodium Chloride, Tetra Sodium Salt, Sodium Citrate, and LOTS OF LOVE!

5 Tips To Rid Mosquitoes In Your Yard

 

5 Tips To Rid Mosquitoes In Your Yard - AnnAgainandagainReviews.com

Ah yes, the rain clouds have passed and the sunshine has hung around for a couple of days.  Time for yard work then enjoying the natural beauty of the yard.  But *smack* these darn *smack* mosquitoes are driving me crazy!  (I’m allergic to them so that makes it even worse.)  After researching natural ways to rid these highly annoying pests here are some tips I’ve found the most useful:

  • Plant Marigolds – The bright marigold not only add nice splashes of color to your garden borders or potted plants, it also gives of a scent which repels mosquitoes.  Marigolds contain Pyrethrum, a compound used in many insect repellents.
  • Dump Standing Water – mosquito larvae can exist in as little as 2 tablespoons of standing water. Children’s toys are the #1 culprits (here’s looking at you sand pails and water tables!)  These pests can develop in any size puddle that has been around for 4 days.  I know it’s convenient to keep a pail of water near your plants for quicker watering, but know that this also enables the creation and housing for the nasty mosquito.
  • Eliminate Decaying Foliage From Ground – Not only is removing fallen leaves from the yard better for your grass, it will eliminate a breeding ground for mosquitoes.   Fallen leaves, over time, create mold and/or fungus and mosquitoes love that stuff!  Mold/fungus is sought after meal for the mosquito so it’s best to remove leaves, branches, any plant from your yard that isn’t living.
  • Fill Your Pond With Mosquito Eating Fish – Stock any ornamental ponds with guppies, koi, or goldfish (most healthy, hungry fish will eliminate the majority of mosquito larvae from ponds).
  • Remove Debris (a.k.a. Tires) From Yard– The used tire has become the most important domestic mosquito producer in this country.  If you’ve done a little automotive repair, and have kept “Take tire to recycling center” on your To-Do List too long, now’s the time to take it away and check it off your list.

 

These are a few tips that I hope will help you rid your yard of the highly annoying mosquito so that you can enjoy your time in the comfort and beauty of your own backyard.

Protecting Your Home from a Flood

Even a little bit of water can cause extensive damage to your home and your possessions. If you live in an area prone to flooding, you know all too well how devastating a flood can be. There are ways that you can protect your home and your belongings and make it less likely that you will suffer from the effects of a flood.

Elevate Your Home

Many homeowners protect their home by elevating their homes about flood level. National rescue agencies offer base flood elevation maps that will show you at which level your home is likely to flood. Relocate your belongings to a higher floor in your home and level the ground level vacant. This will ensure that even if your home does flood, you will not lose valuable possessions.

Protect Your Utilities from Flood Damage

Most people have their hot water heater, furnace and cooling system on the lowest level of their home. This means that in a flood, these utilities will be rendered useless and can even pose a danger to your family. If you know a flood is imminent, shut off the electricity in your home. If your appliances become submerged, consult an electrician before attempting to restart them.

Invest in Flood-Proof Storage

If you live in a flood plain, store your belongings in waterproof containers. Tools and other implements can easily be destroyed in a garage in a flood. Invest in metal side boxes and toolboxes that will protect your equipment. Rubber totes will keep your clothing and other textiles from being damaged. Reinforce walls to keep them from sustaining water damage.

Purchase Flood Insurance

The time to find out if you have flood insurance is before, not after a flood. Many people think that their homeowner’s insurance policy covers flooding. Unless your policy specifically says that it covers floods, assume that it doesn’t. In some cases, you may be required to carry flood insurance if you live in certain areas. Flood insurance is not limited to traditional floods. It may also cover you in the case of a burst pipe or water main break that causes water damage to your home.

When it comes to protecting your home in the event of a flood, it helps to prepare in advance and be ready for whatever may come your way. From buying waterproof toolboxes for your garage to purchasing flood insurance, you can never be too prepared.

How to Finance a New Home

Image courtesy of FreeDigitalPhotos.net

A very happy change is coming to a member of my family.  The purchase of a new home!  Not only will there be a new year to welcome, a new address and neighborhood is coming into the mix.  Have you been looking for a new place to call your own?  If you are considering buying a new home, you have several different options for getting a home loan. With a little research you can find the perfect loan for you. Some of the most common home loans are:

Federal Housing Administration (FHA) Loan

The FHA will insure certain home loans in the event that the borrower cannot repay it. For this type of loan, you’ll give a lower down payment than for a traditional bank mortgage. Your down payment may be only 3.5 percent, which is great compared to the usual 20 percent. Along with this benefit, it is also easier to qualify for an FHA loan than for another type of loan. You can also use an FHA loan for refinancing even if you don’t have a stellar credit rating.

Conventional Home Loans

There are two types of conventional mortgages including the fixed-rate and the variable-rate. Each of these options has advantages and disadvantages, and a loan advisor can tell you which the best is for you.

A fixed-rate loan has a fixed rate of interest that does not change even if interest rates for other loans change. This means, if the interest rate goes up, you still pay your lower fixed-rate. You have a predictable payment every month. This is the best option if the loan can be secured at a low interest rate and if you plan to keep your home for more than five years. It is also possible to get refinancing to change a variable-rate loan to a fixed-rate loan if interest rates are lower than when you secured your fixed-rate loan.

The interest rate for a variable-rate loan will go up and down as interest rates change. Also called adjustable-rate mortgages (ARM), they usually start at a low interest rate, often lower than a fixed-rate loan. As the interest rates chance, your monthly payment will also change. This may be a good option of you plan to sell your house within the next five years or expect interest rates to significantly drop.

Loans for Veterans

The Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) gives home loans to veterans with no down payment. They are easy to qualify for and are usually quickly approved. They can also be fixed-rate or ARM loans.

There are several options that make buying a home easier than ever. You can discuss your financial situation with an expert on loans and find the right one for you.  And soon you could hear – Welcome Home! :->

Recently I came across a new site DECDECALS that showcases an easy way to add flair to your walls.  DECDECALS designs vinyl gave me an idea on how to spruce up my kitchen walls quickly with no painting.  Yay!  (See what the designs offerings here.) Vinyl wall art stickers are the latest idea in home decorating that are easy to buy, easy to ship, easy to use and, if you change your mind on the design, easy to remove. Currently they are the most popular trend for modern home improvement giving you easy access to beautiful designs and encouraging affirmations with wall quotes. (See here.) You can choose from many different designs and styles, and they also allow you to create your own quote any way you like.  Nice.

Nowadays, I feel more and more people are pursuing a quality of life that brings them comfort and nourishes their spirit. They are paying much more attention to the ingredients in their food,  the materials which our clothes are made, and where they’re made, along with daily choices that improve their living environment.  With inspiring DIY projects all over social media, and in print, more efforts are put forth in decorating our homes to become our oasis from the world.  Any steps that can be made to make decorating easier is always welcome in my book and I feel that’s the reason easy to use wall stickers are so popular these days.

The place where savory dishes are made and delicious desserts are created, the kitchen is a good place to add some creative touches to your walls.  I’ve always wanted a window over my kitchen sink but that wouldn’t work for the current design of our house because I’d be looking into the bathroom.  No thank you!  With wall decals you can have just about any view you like, no construction required :-> Visit www.DecDecals.com and get inspired.

Gift Idea For Mother's Day – Caldrea Essential Collection At Target

 photo 1fe36047-3962-4133-ba5c-c979a710aae0_zpsbcb8c6f9.jpg

One of my favorite gifts to give and receive is a lovely, scented candle.  I have been drawn to candles for most of my life and find them to be welcoming, comforting and add a touch of elegance in a home.  Finding a wonderful glow isn’t that difficult but, finding the right scent can be.  Scent is a touchy thing, there’s the sense memory aspect (“This reminds me of some nasty perfume my grandma wore!”) and some scents are too much for some and can bring on a head ache.  Nobody wants that.  There’s a product line, sold exclusively at Target, that has some of the most wonderful scents I’ve found and I think they would make for a great Mother’s Day Gift, Caldrea Essential Collection and their latest scent Blackcurrant Mint.

Ann Again... and again Reviews Caldrea for Mother's Day
Caldrea Blackcurrant Mint Glass Candle and my lovely Irises

I love Caldrea’s fragrances:  Green Tea Verbena, Citron Ginger, Vanilla Lemon.  Those have been my top three and now I’m going to add Blackcurrant Mint to the list.  I have found their fragrances to be full, soft and very rich.  Blackcurrant Mint smells plummy with a touch of mint that doesn’t overpower, it blends so perfectly.  My husband Rob likes the scent too!  (That’s rare to find a scent that doesn’t overwhelm him.)

Caldrea Essential Collection’s latest fragrance Blackcurrant Mint is now available in their full line of products for the home;  dish soap, counter top cleaner, hand soap, hand lotion.  Also available in their scent diffuser and candles.  All Caldrea’s products are biodegradable   They use the finest plant-derived ingredients and essential oils to create great fragrances and cleaning potency.  Not only does my kitchen get clean, it smells yummy too!

You can find Caldrea Essential Collection at Target or online at Target.com.

Stocking Stuffer Ideas From Mrs. Meyer's Clean Day

As the holiday shopping days get fewer and fewer, you might be scrambling for ideas for those that just seem to “have everything”.  Here’s a cute stocking stuffer that is sure to please someone who loves scent and favors products that are earth-friendly.

Recently I discovered the product line Mrs. Meyer’s Clean Day.  These products are hardworking, using naturally occurring ingredients and essential oils that are tough on dirt, yet gentle on your home and earth.  (Their detergent is the best!  I don’t need to use Oxi Clean any more, just sayin’.)  A delightful addition to their cleaning products are Holiday Tins that would be a sweet, little gift or stocking stuffer.

ORANGE CLOVE SCENTED SOY TIN CANDLE

Fill the home with holiday cheer with a Mrs. Meyer’s Clean Day Orange Clove Scented Soy Candle. Whole oranges, embellished with cloves, give off a warm and spicy citrus scent.

 

IOWA PINE SCENTED SOY TIN CANDLE

Crisp Iowa Pine, with a touch of clove and cedar, give this soy-based candle a scent that’s as fresh as a just-cut Christmas tree.

Both candles come in a reusable tin — perfect for cleaning and organizing.  The price is around $2.99 for each tin.  You can find these candles at Target, Whole Foods, Kroger stores and online at www.mrsmeyers.com.
