How to Clean Granite Countertops

Before I start talking about how to safely clean granite,  I want to ask …

How was your Thanksgiving??  Any stories to share about your day? 🙂

All-Purpose Cleaner DIY

Who here is in the middle of preparing for the holidays?  Shopping?  Cooking?  Cleaning?  Show of hands!  (Maybe the question should be, “Who’s not?”)Photo - All-Purpose Cleaner DIY - NHF

Whether you are hosting friends and family at home, or bringing a dish to pot-luck, cleaning is in high gear at this time of year.  Especially in the kitchen.

I used to worry about how safe my household cleaners were.  The more I learned about their ingredients, the more concerned I was about what was spraying all over the house.  And what residue was left behind whenever I “cleaned”.

This non-toxic, all-purpose cleaner is simple to make.  Plus, it kills bacteria and viruses, molds and microbes!  It’s perfect for  just about every job in the house.

Lemon Essential Oil • Not Just for the Fridge!

The more I learn about essential oils, the more I love to use them!

I use a variety of essential oils on a daily basis for various things.  Now that I’ve spent about two years poking and prodding to see if they really work (they do!), I wouldn’t consider managing my day without them. Actually, I’ve been playing with oils (tea tree oil, patchouli, jasmine, sandalwood) off and on for two decades with little understanding of what power I’ve had in my hands!

Earlier this week, I wrote about a resolution involving lemon essential oil and an odd odor in the refrigerator (Freshen the Fridge in a Flash).

Lemon essential oil is almost always on my counter since I use it for so many things. At this very moment, I am sitting next to a glass of water with 1 drop of lemon essential oil*  for both taste and health benefits. I also add a couple of slices of cucumber because I like how these two refreshing tones boost each other. The flavor lasts all day even as I refill my glass, time and time again, to stay hydrated.

But wait!  There’s more!

Here’s a list of common challenges that Lemon Essential Oil can conquer!

Freshen the Fridge in a Flash

The other day, I “discovered” an easy way to freshen the fridge in a flash.

(Sorry, folks.  Sometimes alliteration is just too tempting.)

Just not right.  Like biting into a Granny Smith apple expecting a spurt of deliciously sour juice and instead tasting grilled rib-eye steak. Great taste, wrong situation.

Time to clean out the fridge.  (sigh)   Continue reading “Freshen the Fridge in a Flash”
