I have come across a few products in the last month that have made my life a little bit easier... in a little way. And in my crazy busy life, every LITTLE bit helps:)
The first product is called "Awesome." Awesome is an all-purpose cleaner and de-greaser. My sister in law told me about it because she uses it as a stain remover for clothing. She said it gets her son's clothes really clean and even gets dry-erase marker out of clothes... Awesome! When I went to my local Family Dollar to pick some up, the ladies at the store told me it was great to remove grease and great as a carpet cleaner. I used it in my Hoover steam cleaner to clean my carpets and it did a fantastic job. I have been using it to clean my bathrooms, kitchen, etc.
But the best thing for me, has been my grout! I have tried several things I have found on Pinterest and none of them have worked very well. I simply spray the awesome on the grout, wait 5 minutes or so, brush lightly with a toothbrush and it comes clean! I then use a mop bucket and rag with just water to mop up any left-over awesome! As you can see in this before and after picture, my tile looks awesome! And the great part is that it's super cheap! It's $1 for a spray bottle and $3 for a half gallon at the Family Dollar. I've also seen it at Walmart.(here's my disclaimer... I have read bad reviews on other blogs. I haven't had any problems with it falling off the dryer or ruining my clothes... I've had it for about 2 months and it's been great for me. It is kind of expensive... I think I paid $7 for a 4 month refill, but it's been worth it to me.)
