A Few of My Favorite Things

These are some of my favorite "household" items.

1. ZOUT stain remover
When I worked at ZCMI (a long time ago) in the lingerie department, women would buy this by the gallon, and we were always out of it! I had forgotten about until I saw it recently at Wal-mart! It takes out every stain I've tried! Works great on blood, ketchup and those types of stains. Last time I needed more my Wal-mart didn't have it. I found it at Walgreens though.

2. Finish Dishwasher Tablets
My dishwasher isn't that great and I have super hard water and every other kinds of regular dishwasher powder or liquid leaves my dishes kinda "filmy." These work so much better and gosh dang it they are so much more expensive too! Every once in awhile I buy another thing and try it out and I am always disappointed!
3. Lime A Way
I love to clean my glass shower door with this. It kinda fizzes or something on the hard water and soap scum!

4. Kirby Vacuum
I love my Kirby! It was expensive but worth it! After listening to a few 2 hour plus demos (this was when I was nicer and didn't pretend to be gone when the salesmen come to the door) I really wanted one, but they were selling for like $1200 or something ridiculous. So, we found a new one on e-bay for way less money!

Whoa! I better stop before people think that I have a really clean house or something! Do you have any favorites in your closet?

Lookin Good

One of Bruce's brothers got married this weekend and I couldn't stop taking pictures of my cute boys in their matching ties I made for Father's Day!

I used this tutorial and my limited sewing skills!
What more American than cornflakes?
The fourth of July and Uncle Sam?
