Lemons And Lavender by Billee Sharp Review

Lemons And Lavender by Billee Sharp Review

Lemons And Lavender by Billee Sharp. Lemons and Lavender: The Eco Guide to Better Homekeeping has a lot of great ideas and information in it. It is easy to read too.

One of the things she talks about first is knowing where you want to go…what you want to do. She thinks it is incredibly sad that many people don’t even try to do what they really want to do because they think they don’t have enough money.

She says the real problem for most people is that they haven’t actaully sat down and REALLY looked at their budget. Most people (including me) spend money on a lot of things they don’t need.

If it really came down to the wire…what could you do without? I don’t really need cable tv…and I could actaully live without coffee…and many of the snack items we have in our house too.

The author says that most people could have more money for what they really want if they stop wasting it on things they don’t really need.  The book also has a lot of suggestions on cheap ways to clean house,  simple eco friendly cleaners that don’t cost much, easy recipes, and lots of advice.

I learned a few things. It is a good book.

Natural House Probiotic Cleaning Products Giveaway

Natural House Cleaning Products are natural. They use non-toxic, probiotic cleaning agents that are strong enough for commercial clean-up, but safe for all members of the household.

Natural House products use  eco-friendly probiotics that create an odor eating ecosystem that naturally drives out and digests odors at their source.

The ingredients are plant-based so they are biodegradable and non-toxic. They contain good probiotics that continue to clean and consume odors until your next weekly treatment.

The probiotics in the natural household cleaners produce enzymes which break down odors, dirt, fats, oil, grease, food scraps, waste and toilet paper products on a continuous basis.

I received a 30 day supply to try for myself. I really liked Trashy! We sprayed our trash can and let it dry and that took care of the smell from there! It has not started to smell again yet either.  Which means that bottle might actually last more than a month.

My kitchen sink drain was also having an odor problem(this is the reason I wanted to try this product). I used Sinky on it and it did remove the odor. I can’t say whether it works on clogs or not since mine didn’t have a problem. Since it removed whatever was causing the smell it probably would help keep the drain working.

Their Flushy product is for the toilet. It cleans and also helps keep  the pipes and septic system working well. My toilet didn’t have any hard water deposits to remove so I can’t say how well it would do on those. It did work well on regular cleaning. I didn’t really need to use the brush at all.

I like these products. So far they seem to work as well as regular cleaners. The cost seems comparable. And they are non-toxic which is a big plus!

You can buy the products on the Natural House website or on Amazon.com. You can also follow them on Facebook and Twitter.
