Replenishing Cleaning Supplies

I have almost finished my laundry liquid supply, so it was time to make some more. And while I was at it, I made some more handwash! I had read a tip about some extra ingredients to add to the handwash, so I wanted to give that a try.

Scarf organisation

It’s been a bit quiet around here, sorry about that. I have no excuses!

Today I have a very quick and easy way to organise your scarves. Most likely you all do this already, and I am only just catching up…

I wasn’t always a scarf wearer. I really dislike things around my neck. I never wear a polo neck top for that reason. I also don’t even like a high round-neck top.

But after a few winters of walking to and from school, watching soccer training and weekly games, and sitting beside the outdoor swimming pool, I couldn’t take being cold any longer. So I joined the ranks of scarf wearers!

The back of my bedroom door very conveniently has a couple of hooks on which I hang my coat, my dressing gown, and the main scarves I wear regularly. They sit there all year behind the door, out of the way.

When you drop one of these bombs in your toilet, they start fizzing which means they are cleaning and deodorising your toilet bowl. And once your children see this, they will want to ‘clean’ the toilet regularly! Continue reading
