Carpet Cleaning with Biz

carpet-cleaning-with-biz

This year I’ve been discussing how Biz has become my partner in crime against tough stains.  Whether there’s dirt and grease on a pair of work pants, ink on a favorite shirt, or hot sauce on a new pair of khaki shorts, Biz is the ultimate non-bleach stain fighter!  But did you know that Biz can also be used to clean items other than laundry?  The Biz website has great tips and suggestions on how you can use Biz Stain Fighter to clean multiple hard surfaces!  I’m talking tubs and showers, counter tops, and even patio furniture!  Today I’m “thinking outside the laundry the room” and showing you how I used Biz to clean up carpet stains!

What’s your least favorite household chore?  Previously I’ve discussed how much I dislike doing the dishes, but if I had to pick something that I like even less than dishes, it would be cleaning the bathroom!  But guess what?  It has to be done!  This year as part of my quest for a more simplified life, I’ve been coming up with ways to make housekeeping easier for myself.  Today I will share my latest and greatest cleaning weapon in my bathroom cleaning arsenal, the New Scotch-Brite® Disposable Toilet Scrubber (and Disposable Scrubber Refills), and I’ll share some simple tips and strategies for maintaining a clean bathroom (with a printable checklist included).

Tips and a Printable Checklist for Clean Kitchen

One of my goals for this year has been to change how I clean house.  There have been times in the past, where I’ve walked around my house and literally felt sick, looking around at the mess and all the work that had to be done.  Sometimes things were in a mess, because I’d been too busy with blog and shop work to clean; other times things were in a mess, because I’d been taking on extra big projects around the house (things like decluttering, garage sales, and DIY projects), and still other times things would be in a mess from a lack of cleaning due to migraine or other illnesses.

But as I said, one of my goals for this year has been to change I clean house, and after doing a little research on the topic and putting some new habits in to place, I think I’ve finally found a good formula that works for me.  Today I’m going to discuss one of the most difficult rooms to keep clean: the kitchen.  I’m going to give you some of my tips and a checklist to keep your kitchen clean.  And we’re going to talk about a few products from Scotch-Brite® that will help you maintain a clean kitchen.

Making Tough Jobs a Breeze with Mean Green

Biz: My New Secret Weapon for Fighting Stains

Biz Secret Weapon

I’ve been using Biz now for two months, and I have to say, it is definitely a clothes saver! Previously I posted about BIZ, explaining how it works and why it’s effective.  And today I’ve got a couple of examples of the product in action!

But first, let’s quickly review how you use Biz.  Biz is a stain fighter that works to boost the power of your detergent by 80%.  There are two methods for using the product.  You can use it as a pre-treater: Just apply it to the stain, rub it gently, and then wait 5-10 minutes before washing.  And the second method is to use it as laundry additive: Just pour a cap in with your laundry.

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

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…]
