I’ve been trying to clean my stand up shower.

My guess is that it’s as old as our home, so about 20 years old.

It gets that orange gunk on it that builds up in all the corners and no matter how hard I work to get it out, I can’t seem to get it all. I’ve even taken a tooth brush to it with little luck! The hard part about a stand up shower is all the little corners that are hard to get to when the door is open and impossible when the door is closed.

I recently asked in one of my mom groups what other moms do to clean their shower and I got some great responses. My favorite was this nifty tool:

You guys, this thing is amazing! It worked easily with the drill we already own and did an insane job of cleaning our shower. Much better than even the toothbrush did! The link above is the exact set I bought (please note it does NOT come with the drill), but I wish I would have searched around a bit for a better deal. I looked on Amazon and came up with a similar set for a few dollars less.

I also used Barkeepers Friend (BKF) to clean. An acidic toilet bowl cleaner was recommended to me, but a friend told me she used toilet bowl cleaner to clean the shower as a child and it took the finish off and essentially ruined the shower. So… I’m not recommending that one. But I do find good success with BKF! There is a powder and liquid form of BKF, but I’ve had the best success with the powder version. I also use it on my kitchen sink to keep it white!

Powdered BKF

I wish I would have taken before and after pictures, but you can see that the orange gunk is gone! I was even able to get up in the corners and under the door well with the smallest piece. I used the extension piece the whole time (you can see it on the drill) because it seemed to make it easier, especially in the back corner behind the door. And the powdered residue you see in the pic is the Barkeepers Friend that I haven’t scrubbed up or rinsed out yet.

I did get a humorous text exchange when I asked my husband where our drill was… 😃 

I still need to figure out how to get the orange out of the caulking around the door and shower, but I’m not sure that’s possible. It seems ingrained in the caulking now. Any ideas welcome!

Product Review Wednesday – Windmill Watermelon Slicer

We had a lot of fun trying out this week’s product! I have seen these Windmill Watermelon Slicers EVERYWHERE lately, so we had to try it out for ourselves! Seriously, it was the easiest thing I’ve ever used to cut a watermelon. Super quick and super easy. After I sliced the watermelon, I used the Windmill Watermelon Slicer to cut it into squares in a matter of minutes! And that’s about all I’ve got to say! Haha!

Product Review Wednesday – Makeup Remover Towels

While I enjoy putting on makeup – well, maybe not the actual putting on, but I like the end result – I really don’t like taking it off! Random fact: I usually only take 5 minutes on my makeup in the morning! I want it to look nice, but not take significant time out of my day. (Please don’t tell me that you could tell… 🤪). On the flip side, I HATE scrubbing at my face to get my makeup off! It’s the worst! I’d been hearing about makeup remover cloths and finally decided to try some when I found a good deal on Amazon!

Recently I tried these. Always Off Makeup Remover Cloths.

At first I wasn’t sure if I liked them or not. Lately, I’m annoyed if I don’t have one clean to use! They’ve become a great part of my facial care routine!

S & T Always Off Makeup Remover Cloths

Although I wash my face with soap twice a day, I hate using other makeup removers on my face. I’m not sure why – I think because of the additional expense (eye makeup remover + cotton swabs for example), the additional time, and not finding a natural eye-makeup remover I liked. I’m all for the most natural, least expensive, and least time intensive route when it comes to daily care routines. Before getting these cloths I usually got *most* of the eye makeup off at night and just let it smear a little, and then when I washed my face in the morning I’d get the rest off. 

I saw these microfiber makeup remover cloths for the first time a while ago on Amazon. They looked like a fun idea, and useful if they would remove eye makeup without an additional product, but I didn’t want to spend $10 unless I knew I was going to use them. Well, one day I noticed this pack of Reusable Microfiber Makeup Remover Cloths for a lot less than $5! I felt like I could spend that for a trial run! I added them to my cart. 

I honestly wasn’t expecting to really like them. I wasn’t sure if they would remove my mascara with just water… it seemed too much to ask. However, I’ve had GREAT success with them! I use one to clean off the mascara as good as possible with water, and then when I wash my face the rest just comes off. They do remove my makeup with just water, too, but I still have to use soap because that’s me 😂. My face tends to break out more if I don’t wash my face twice a day… so I just stick with that. 

I am impressed with the pack of cloths I originally got. The 3 pack is almost enough for me. I think a few more would be nice. I throw them in with my regular laundry and usually have a clean one available. I have noticed that the edges are already starting to fray/come apart a little at the seam. So once they need replaced I think I will get the nicer pack to see if they’ll last a little longer. A friend also told me that the MakeUp Eraser cloths have two sides – a softer side and a side meant more for scrubbing. I think that’s a cool feature! They’re a little more pricey, but she said they’re worth it!

For the rest of my facial routine I use doTERRA Essential Oils and products and really love them! Feel free to ask if you’d like to know what I use. (And yes, I know a lot of oil users use coconut oil to wash their face, but it just didn’t work well for me… so I use a doTERRA or Neutrogena facial cleanser because that’s what I’ve found works). 

So, there you go! That’s a little about my daily facial regimen. Have you tried the Reusable Microfiber Makeup Remover Towels? Tell me how you like them!

Product Review Wednesday – Step 2 Kid’s Art Easel

Some of my favorite gifts for the twins have been things we never asked for! Last year for the twins’ 2nd birthday their Aunt Khaki (Aunt Kathy) got them this Step 2 Easel and some additional dry erase markers. It has been wonderful!

The boys love to color on both the chalkboard side and the white board side. And they really enjoy playing with the magnets as well! It’s super fun! I was really impressed the other day when B told me he wrote his letters and sure enough I looked over and the kid had written his name with no prompting, and pretty will for being barely 3 years old! 

I’m really proud of this! 😀

The boys are really into spelling right now. They usually ask, “What is his/her letters?” pretty much about everyone! They can spell Mimi, Papa, Mom, Dad, their own names, their babysitter, and they’re always working on a new word or name! We use the easel to practice writing a lot!

Since the boys are only 3, and are super curious, we have had a couple issues with chalk and marker turning up where it shouldn’t be. The chalk is definitely easier to get off things, just an FYI haha. I didn’t give them the markers for a while and we had a bit of a learning curve, but they’re sticking to the white board better now. So far our only casualties have been a chair I recovered last year and the wall. 

If you need a travel easel we have had great success with these little wooden boxes! They’re pretty much the same thing, only smaller! We use them for quiet time (I only give them magnets, not markers or chalk if I’m not supervising), in the car, church, or any time we need some sort of quiet play! These would also make a great gift for a little in your life.

Product Review Wednesday – Toothbrush Holders

Full Disclosure: Links in this post may be affiliate links. I use these to help keep my blog up and going! I appreciate when you use my links to purchase products (and I know you appreciate knowing it doesn’t cost you any extra!), and I also appreciate you hanging out and reading my blog!

It’s actually kinda funny how much I love the little men in the picture below. I didn’t realize you could become so attached to toothbrush holders 😂😂. I got these for our twins’ bathroom… which is also the guest bathroom. I was tired of toothbrush holders that collect gunk in the bottom of them, or rust out quickly, or don’t have enough room for the fun electric toothbrushes we’ve been getting the boys to make toothbrushing more fun. So, on a whim, I bought these. They are so much fun! I think they’re cute, they’re easy to clean, and they work just like I wanted them to.

When we first got them I was only going to put 2 up for the twins’ toothbrushes, but they immediately opened the other 2 up and stuck them on the mirror as well. They like to move them around and switch the color they’re using. One tip we learned was to put a little water on the back of the suction cup to keep them suctioned longer.

I thought that the little arms would be moveable but they’re stationary… just FYI. The best part is that when we went out of town last weekend I just threw them in our travel bag and took them with us! They worked so well for all our toothbrushes, I plan to take them with us wherever we go!

We only needed 4, but I also found a set of 6 with more colors (the 2 extra are hooks to hang washrags on, etc, not toothbrush holders) available here. Or if you need 8 (2 of each color), you can find them here.
