It’s been a little while since I’ve given away anything from my blog! So, before I tell you what I did…er, melted yesterday, I have to tell you about my dirty bathroom mirror. I don’t have pictures of the “before” because I really didn’t expect anything to produce an “after;” so, I’m going to paint a gross little word picture for you.
When I bought this trailer, it came with everything it had in it. And by “everything,” I mean “dirt”. Actually, my sweet servant example parents bagged up six large trash bags before they even let me in to see the place. So, I can only imagine how gross it was before. But I guess I probably wouldn’t be living here now if they hadn’t done that. The fixer-up phase is on “pause” at the moment. It’s hard to know how much you want to do to a home that cost less than your last car (and I don’t spend much on my cars). Besides, Jesus is still working on my addition to His Father’s House, and I’m no longer very interested in those remodels that won’t survive fire. Cleaning, though, I am very interested in, which is why I almost tossed all of the existing mirrors. There was one, though, that was especially bad.
You’ve probably seen one…maybe in a truck stop bathroom. It looks like it used to be a mirror–or maybe something like a mirror. Now, though, it belongs in a fun house, possibly–the trash, probably. What you see when you look in it is more like a shadowy, distorted version of your mirrored self. I don’t know what the film was. I don’t know if someone had tried to clean it with garbage?!? Anyhoo, though…it was grimy.
I tried Windex, of course. Straight vinegar. Rubbing alcohol. Nothing worked. But then, my good friend Connie sent me some Shaklee products, and I thought it was worth one last try.
(Drum roll please….)
It (specifically the candy-smelling Scour Off Paste) worked!!
I told Connie about my love of Shaklee, and she said I could give away some Basic H2 samples from my blog! Don’t let “sample” fool you–this is Shaklee we’re talking about! Each sample contains enough solution for 2 bottles of cleaner, all purpose and window! I’ve been using Basic H2, with a few drops of lavender oil, on everything in my house! It works as well as any chemical cleaner I’ve ever tried (and better than my homemade ones, have). I don’t have to worry about the kids using it, and I don’t have to worry about them overusing it because this stuff is seriously going to last forever.
For a chance at scoring your own Basic H2 sample–to have the privilege of cleaning well without nasty chemicals and fakey smells–just click on over to Connie’s blog (she’s only giving away 10, so hurry!!). Comment on any post and tell her I sent you!
Also, if you purchase a Get Clean Starter Kit ($99), Connie will send you a FREE Scour Off Heavy Duty Paste (the miracle paste that cleaned my filthy mirror).
