Happy spooky Halloween!
I finally ordered a few items from CSN Stores to review. If you recall, I mentioned a couple weeks ago about CSN offering me a chance to review something from their website. Did you know I’m one of their Preferred Bloggers? Pretty cool, huh?
Anyway, I was able to order three items: two kitchen items – I’ll let you know what they are when I do the actual reviews of each – and one thing for YS2. Look for those reviews soon.
Awhile ago, I won a sample of Maggie’s soap nuts from Kelli. I’ve been curious about these for so long but never broke down and bought any. I waited to win some and my patience paid off. And hey, these are pretty cool. Just put five little soap nuts in the cotton bag provided and toss in the wash and let it do its thing. Clothes were clean and soft. Lasts about five washes but depending on how you wash they can last a little longer. For us, about six washes but might be able to push it to seven. Very cool that these grow on trees. What they are is the dried fruit of the soapberry tree and contain saponin, a natural detergent or cleaner. So, very eco-friendly. Thanks again to Kelli and Maggie’s.
