Tub Shroom Review

Tub Shroom sent me this handy little do-dad. It catches hair and doesn't allow it to go down the drain.
 With 2 girls in the house and lots of long hair, we are constantly dealing with clogged drains. The drain covers we have tried go over the drain and collects the hair around it.


TubShroom fits inside the tub drain, collecting hair around it. It is made of flexible silicone. All you have to do is pull it out along with all they hair. When you clean the TubShroom, you can rinse it, wipe it and its clean.  It fits any standard tub (not shower) drain and is guaranteed to catch every hair every time!
This is a great tool if you have tons of long hair in the house.

TubShroom comes in Clean White, Marine Blue, Neutral Gray, Organic Green, and Autumn Orange

Crystal Wash Laundry Alternative Review

I have tried many natural products over the years. We have used homemade detergents, store bought detergents, soap nuts, crystals and pretty much anything we can try to get rid of chemicals in our wash. Normally the clothes end up smelling a bit off and not super clean (especially work out clothes). There are a couple brands that I like, but in an effort to find a product that is more cost effective, I am trying these Crystal wash Balls. Also, if you have small kids in the house, you want products that aren't harmful to them. This is that product.

Each set is about $49 on amazon and lasts 1,000 washes. While the cost seems a bit high at first, the breakdown is about 4 CENTS per load of laundry. Many pods cost up to 23 cents per load.

Every 30 cycles you need to set these in the sun to recharge for a day and you are back in business. If you do one load of laundry a day Crystal wash will last you almost 3 years! That is a HUGE Savings even at full price! Imagine, never running out of laundry soap again!

Simply throw the set of two balls into the washer, add clothes, and wash as normal.


There is also an app that you can use to track your usage of your Crystal Wash balls! You simply hold your finger on the washer and it keeps track of every wash. I accidentally reset mine to zero while messing around with the app. We have done about 15 loads of laundry so far. There is absolutely ZERO smell from anything we have washed. That pleases my nose!

There are statistics, label decoder, stain guide and so much more on this app.

Crystal Wash started from a desire to change the way clothes are washed. This naturally cleans your clothes, saves a ton of money,  increases the longevity of our clothes, and rids our clothes of chemicals, dyes, or perfumes that touch our skin. HECK YES! I'm all over that.

Crystal Wash uses the power of Bio Ceramics from the earth. Naturally cleaning your clothes is better for your skin, health, the environment and more gentle on your wash. Bio Ceramics use various minerals with very effective antibacterial and anti-oxidant properties.

As Crystal Wash moves around in your laundry, it changes the chemistry and raises the pH balance of the water. The higher Alkaline water from the laundry balls created enables dirt and soils to be soaked free naturally. This process creates a natural Hydrogen Peroxide type effect, which disinfects your clothes... killing bacteria and odors. I can attest to this. Many products I have tried do not get rid of workout stench... this does!

I try to come up with one feature that could be improved on products that I review, but could not think of anything for this.

Squatty Potty and Unicorn Gold Review

 Squatty Potty sent me two samples of their Unicorn Gold in Fruity Booty, and Tropical Dropsies. You can get them in time for Christmas if you order on amazon. Just click the drop down and select your scent! These are the 2oz bottles and are PERFECT for a purse or diaper bag.

Their marketing is BRILLIANT! With Unicorn Gold you can "slay your poo stink with the golden fart of a mystic unicorn".  I have seen other products but I really like that this product uses essential oils an more natural products. One spray seems to do the job regardless of the person. I'm reading that you can get up to 48 sprays per 2oz bottle. If you use this sparingly that's at least a month of stench free living.

This stuff REALLY works! Unicorn Gold fights odor both above and below the splash line. However, in my experience with Complementary health and alternative wellness... if you are extremely stinky you might want to check your diet......just saying.

They use Colloidal gold to address sulfur compounds that cause poop to stink and gets rid of the nasty molecules mid-air.

Unicorn Gold's "Potty Lock technology" seals the waterline to trap odors beneath and releasing the scent of essentials oils.

We try to eliminate (see what I did there?) use of chemicals and this seems to be a great product so far.

Colloidal Gold is suspended in each spritz of Unicorn Gold. Colloidal Gold reacts with sulfur to destroy odor and it truly works!

I thought I laughed hard at the stool video........OH MY GOSH!

Squatty Potty previously sent me their stool to review. Check out the review here of the stool.

Hickies Review and giveaway

Hickeys sent me a selection of their shoe lacing system.

These have been great to reduce the amount of time in the morning. If you are like me, you choose your battles wisely. Make every pair of shoes a slip on instead of hassling with tying your childs shoes or waiting for them to tie them.

They have a bunch of color combinations to customize your shoes and make them easy to get on. These work well for those who have lost the dexterity in their hands as well.

This is the back of the laces. They bulb side simply pops into the opening and instantly your shoes are made into slip ons.

These have transformed my mornings and saves me endless amounts of tears and rushing. Plus they make my daughters shoes stand out and she enjoys them because she can change the lace colors out whenever she wants.

I'm giving a pair away! Enter now
