Every once in a while, I come across a product that completely revolutionizes the way things get done in our house. I am not one to invest in the latest and greatest, but some products are just life changers.
With everyone gearing up for spring and the cleaning of every nook and cranny, I thought it might be fun to exchange reviews on some of the products that have made our lives easier, better, or more organized!
There are two products I find myself using on a regular basis, ones which I loathe to live without. They are extremely efficient and wonderfully inexpensive!
Our family is a fan of real wood. Most of our furniture has at least some detail of carving incorporated. Cleaning and conditioning used to be a challenge. Either you buy wood oils and risk ruining any fabric attached or you end up using a product that doesn’t efficiently maintain your furniture.
Murphy’s Wood Oil Soap completely changed all that! Not only is this soap powerful enough to clean the grimiest of wood, but it is gentle enough to leave your hands feeling absolutely wonderful. It smells awesome and won’t harm your fabrics either.
We use Murphy’s several days a week, cleaning everything from the wood in our home to the tile floors. Murphy’s is so versatile, we even use it to clean our cars.
Both my husband and I enjoy cooking. We use our pots and pans for every meal of the day, with snacks in between. With the multitude of ingredients being tossed in different dishes and all the various oils used in cooking, our pans can get a bit tarnished looking.
For years we tried using various products to keep them looking like new. (Being OCD this is an area of struggle for me.) I used Comet, Ajax, and a few others. Nothing seemed to bring back that lovely shine and polish of a new stainless steel piece of cookware.
Recently, I have started using BarKeeper’s Friend. Oh, my goodness! This stuff is the greatest cleaner on earth for anything in the kitchen or bathroom. Now all our stainless steel is sparkling like new!
I use BarKeeper’s Friend to scrub our sinks, toilets, tubs, grout, and anything else which needs that little extra spit and polish. My husband said he even used it to wash his hands after doing some heavy-duty yard work.
If there is one kitchen gadget we can’t seem to get enough of, it is Pampered Chef’s Apple Peeler, Corer, Slicer. The kids like the curly cue spirals that come out and I like the speed in which I can work. This makes cooking just a little more fun!
While out doing my weekly grocery shopping today, a vendor passed out free kitchen tools. This got my mind whirling on all the products which have altered the way we handle life.
They might not be important in the grand scheme of things, but they are changing the way we live and function in our home.
Which product has been a life changer for you?
