Secure Cabinets, Toilet Seats, & More #MommyTLC.






 


These are just what I've been looking for.
by MommyTLC 
Not only are these great for child proofing but
for pet proofing too! 
                             
I've been looking for a way to secure my under
the sink cabinet from my nosy trash getting dog.
~ The culprit ~
Don't let that smile fool you!
I've tried a multitude of things to keep her out
 (rubber bands, rope, other kid locks, a chair, a tall trash
can that she just knocks over, etc.) I hate coming home to what looks like a trash heap after she's dragged it all out.
We currently keep our trash bag in the sink, yeh,
not the most convenient or sanitary place.
I'm excited to say, so far so good!!
No trash drug out, yippee!!

Built in adhesive makes installation
and removal easy, no tools needed.
 
Be sure to thoroughly clean the area
 and let dry thoroughly,
 so you can get the best adhesion possible.
I'm keeping the other one for my granddaughter
for when she gets older and mobile.
I plan on purchasing more.
These work on cabinets, drawers, appliances,
 even corner cabinets, fridge
and toilet seat with their bendable strap.

 
They have a simple flip and click technology that 
opens on either end for your convenience.
Easy operation for adults but not for children. 
Multi Purpose Safety Latches are
available on Amazon.
 I received one or more of the products mentioned above for free or a
discounted  price from Mommy TLC . 
Regardless, I only recommend products or services I use personally
 and believe will be good for my readers.

Beautiful Teardrop Aromatherapy Diffuser Locket #TeardropNecklace



by Cornucopia Brands
First I must say I love the antique teardrop design necklace.
Very feminine.
I love filigree so this was right up my alley.
The locket acts as a regular locket,
open it, place an absorbent diffuser ball inside,
then add a few drops of your favorite essential oils or blends.
Several diffuser balls are included in different colors so you can wear different oils without mixing up the fragrances!
Such a great idea!

An attractive way to wear your healing and
fragrances of essential oils anywhere you go.
It's even charming as is, without any oils.

I only added a few drops of Lavender Essential Oil to try it out
and was pleasantly surprised at how long the fragrance lasted.
The diffuser ball soaked the oil right in, very absorbent.


This kit comes with pipettes for your essential oils
in case your bottles do not have droppers. 
The chain is high quality and very attractive.
It doesn't kink as some lesser quality ones do.
It's slinky on your skin and conforms easily to your contours.
The  Teardrop Aromatherapy Diffuser Locket kit
comes with:
 1 complete aromatherapy diffuser necklace,
chain, 
4 pipettes,  
4 extra diffuser locket balls,
(as to allow for the option for a different interior color, while also adding different oils without unintentional mixing.)   
  
Teardrop Aromatherapy Diffuser Locket kit is
available on Amazon. 
 


    I received one or more of the products mentioned above for free or a discounted  price from Cornucopia Brands. 
Regardless, I only recommend products or services I use personally
 and believe will be good for my readers.

8 Laundry Hacks to Make Life Easier

If there’s one task in this world that everyone loves to hate, it’s laundry. There’s simply no escaping it. Or is there? Check out these 8 easy ways to put an end to the never-ending cycle of, well, never-ending cycles.
 
1. Presort by Color and Material - Why dig through dirty hampers to find like colors when you can just do the work right from the get-go? Buy an extra hamper or two for easy sorting and save those few precious minutes for something more enjoyable.



 2. Wash Items Faster – If you’ve ever wondered what the
Quick Wash setting on your washer was for, you’re overthinking it. It does exactly what it sounds like. Assuming your clothes aren’t caked in dirt, try the Quick Wash option and you can cut your time by as much as half.

3. Dry Items Faster – Turns out there’s a trick for this one as well. Next time you throw a load in the dryer, add in a nice, dry,
fluffy towel and watch it do what a towel does best.


 
4. Eliminate Lint Balls – Is your sweater suffering from a lint-festation? No worries. Just use a
pumice stone to rub them loose, then let a lint roller pick ‘em right up. 



 5. Work out the Wrinkles – You know what makes a great iron? A dryer. Just throw in a small, wet towel with your dry, wrinkled item and it should be wrinkle-free in no more than a few minutes.

6. Ironing Pleats – Have some nice, pleated slacks that are not-so-nice to iron? Try using
bobby pins to hold the pleats in place. Talk about simplicity!

7. Un-shrink Clothes – It may sound like magic, but we assure you this one’s for real. Just fill up a sink of lukewarm water, pour in a capful of baby shampoo and let the garment soak it in for about five minutes. After removing, squeeze out the excess water but do NOT rinse it. Next, lay out the garment on a dry beach towel and roll it up inside to soak up even more. Then, on a new towel, lay the garment out once again, but this time, stretch the loose fibers until they’re officially back to their
original size and shape.



8. Comforter Cleaning – Most comforters are WAY too big to fit in your washer or dryer. Fortunately, you can always head to a Laundromat, the dry cleaner, or simply air it out on a clothing line.
 

  While none of these tips will get you completely out of laundry duty, they sure can come in handy. Give ‘em a try this week and start freeing up time to enjoy the better things in life – like just about anything else.
