Roto-Rooter Gel Clog Remover

We live in an older home, and as a result, we’ve been no stranger to plumbing problems!  When we first moved in to our home, we attempted to cut off many problems at the pass by converting the plumbing from a septic system to a city sewer system.  Unfortunately we still experienced a lot of problems with clogging in our sinks and bathtub, as well as leaky pipes.  My husband has had to work on these several times, but last year things got so bad that we  had to call out the guys at Roto-Rooter.  They did a great job of replacing some old copper pipes, which has prevented us from having anymore major clogging issues.  But like anyone, we still experience the occasional clogs, and for that all you need is Roto-Rooter Gel Clog Remover®.

Roto-Rooter has been a trusted name in plumbing for 80 years.  Now they have a line of sewer and septic products for home and professional use with more active ingredients than other brands.  The Roto-Rooter line of products includes their Gel Clog Remover, Hair Clog Remover, and Septic Treatment.

Friday Favorites – Week 321 – With Natural DIY Solutions

Hello everyone.  Happy Friday!  Today’s party celebrates a theme that has become near and dear to my heart over the past couple of years: Natural DIY Solutions.

I can’t say that I’m a completely all-natural kind of a girl.  I still have a number of chemical cleaners that I use, and I certainly have my share of health and beauty products that contain chemicals.  But I have started using essential oils in a number of areas in my life.  I have a diffuser on my desk.  And I especially love using cleaners made from essential oils.

Today I’m featuring posts, which teach how to make your own laundry and dish soap, as well as a post on how to make your own lavender oil!

Fighting Stains with BIZ

As a wife and mom, I am always washing clothes.  It’s one chore that I definitely don’t mind doing on my own, because I like to make sure that everyone’s clothes look perfect!  I’m particular about how things get sorted; I’m particular about the cycles our clothes get washed with, and of course, I’m particular about what products get used to clean our clothes!  Most recently I’ve started using BIZ® as our stain fighter.  Biz was the first enzyme based pre-soak and color-safe bleach

I deal with a variety of stains.  As you know, my husband is basically a professional Mr. Fix-It, so he’s always out working on something, whether it’s a car, a lawn mower, or an appliance, so he’s always coming in with dirt, oil, and grease on his clothes. [Read more…]

Yet, most people don’t go nearly deep enough in their spring cleans.

If you are like most people, you have not cleaned or organized your garage since you moved in. This spring, you can finally wrest control of this space, so you can maximize your storage and minimize your waste and clutter. [Read more…]
