Finally, a way to get those pesky smells out of your house and car without looking like an evergreen or smelling like flowers on a hot day. The Chikuno Cube is made from ultra fine powder of bamboo charcoal and clay materials, creating an odor absorbing smart box.  Its only 2 inches big but packs a mean punch because of its honeycomb design.  Plus, it can be re-used for up to 1 year, just give it some sun beams for 6 hours a month.  This is so popular, it sold out with a few days, but will be back in stock in a few days.

Now that January is almost over, its time to finally de-clutter your closet and you may be surprised what you may find in the back!   Along with getting rid of all those clothes that you don’t wear, or can’t fit into, take a look in your jewelry box.  Most of us have jewelry we never wear, or have only worn once with that one outfit, that oh look, you are now giving away!  Before donating all of your goods, take a look to see if anything can be used as something else.  Have a few bangle bracelets or watches?  Try wrapping them around napkins for a unique look or wrap around cords to keep them looking neat.

Shine, shine on


Now that stainless steel is popping up everywhere, from sinks to appliances to countertops, it is important to be cleaning it with the proper product(s).   To get regular kitchen grime (yes, we all have it, no matter how clean you think you are!) it really is quite simple.

The best method to use is to take hot soapy water  (regular dishwashing liquid soap works just fine) and a nonabrasive sponge and clean over the surface, going with and against the grain (but be careful not to get stuck in the “wax on wax off” motion!)  Simply this will get most surfaces clean, however if you notice its a little duller then normal, its working.  All that shine is grease!

For additional grime, Sheila Shine, works to fight against everything.  And I mean everything.  Even those pesky fingerprints that always show up right after you cleaned!
