Woolite everyday usage

Got to try the latest Woolite everyday use product and I have to say I am very proud to be a Woolite tester. As a kid all I remember that Woolite had was the delicate stuff that I used to handwash my "unmentionables" now they make a product for my darks (which I love to use on my jeans and I really do think it helps the color stay in longer) and now the latest is to use everyday. I want a product that keeps my clothes looking newer longer because frankly I do not have money to buy new clothes all the time? Anyone with me on that one!?

Soft Scrub 4-in-1 toilet care

Dry Idea

I have to tell you I don't usually brag about toilet cleaner but I am totally SOLD on Soft Scrub's new product. I am not sure why the picture is blurry. It is called the 4 in one because it cleans, prevents buildup, fights toilet ring and freshens for up to four weeks. The even better news is it costs less than two dollars! My own personal toilet cleaner and I don't even have to pay that much. Now I have to tell you I got to get really close to this product. I came down with the flu the week that I put this in the toilet. So as I was hanging out in the bathroom with a very upset stomach, I got to see that in fact this product was doing it's job. It is tough to keep a toilet clean in the Nordgren household. I got a four year old boy who likes to look everywhere but where he is aiming when he goes to the bathroom and sometimes I just get really busy and don't get the toilets cleaned as often as they need to be. I was very impressed with the sparkle. I can not wait to get another one of these and put it down in the kids' bathroom- not sure what it is about a 6 and a 4 year old but they can't remember to flush so their toilet always looks awful. This product also comes with bleach if you want that. I also think it has a good smell and the first several days when ever I was in the bathroom I kept wondering what smelled so good! I thought Kjell had changed deodorants or something! To enter today please just let me know what you are most looking forward to with Spring maybe here?? I write this as there is snow on the ground but hopefully the last one of the season. Make sure to also enter on the link I have posted to win $1000! I would love to have someone I know win this that would be AWESOME!

Soft Scrub gave me a free product to try and review- all of the statements here are my own.

Old Navy Ts

I was lucky enough to get some coupons for Old Navy T's from Crowdtap and awesome company who asks opinions on several brands. This coupon was for two free t shirts for a friend and me. So I had my first outing without Javan- and yes I talked about him the whole time and I feel like it was like that date who only talks about their ex with how much I talked about him and worried! lol But we had a great time shopping and trying on shirts and eating at Olive Garden. I was really impressed with the styles they had and the many many different colors. I really wanted to get more than two that day, but we found out at checkout that this week they have a special buy one get one free deal. And the full price of one shirt is only $8 or $8.50 so very reasonable. I will be getting more of these as they are a bit more dressy than just a "normal tshirt" but at such a great price I can afford to get several of them! I didn't buy the orange one that is one I am going to have to go back and get. The other picture is my friend Jennifer- we got the cami's she is holding for 3.50 WOW that was also a great deal!

Combat ant/roach killing bait strips

So I am to try this product but I don't have any ants YET. I always wonder when we move into a new house (since there have been several of them) I was thinking of setting some food out on the kids' table outside and seeing if I could drive some ants here to see how well these work. But I didn't think I should kill ants that were minding their own business. I think this product looks like it would be very easy to keep in a discreet location and take care of those pesky summer friends that sometimes sneak into the house. I have a feeling we will get some this year since our sliding glass door is right next to our dining room table and the kids aren't exactly clean :) and if you just love to watch you tube videos click on here to see the official combat youtube page. This giveaway is a little different there will only be one winner and instead of me sending you a coupon I will send your name to the company who sends me this stuff and they will send it straight to you. To enter just post roach or ant depending on what product you would like to receive. You can also try to win $1000 by entering here
Good Luck
Combat provided me with a  sample of Combat Killing Bait Strips in exchange for this review.

Dial Kids body+hair wash

YAY! something fun for the kids- well if you kids like to take baths as much as my kiddos do. I am so proud of Dial for adding a kids line into their mix of products. I was raised on Dial soap the bright orange bar soap was really the only soap I knew existed as a kid! So I am glad to see them branching out. They worked with pediatric dermatologists on the special formula and designed two products one for kids ages 2-5 the scent is Peachy clean and one for kids ages 6-10 (this one comes inwatery melon or berry cool we tried the melon one) They are two-in-ones so shampoo and body wash in the same product which helps save some time AND some space around the tub! I enjoyed the product because I like a little scent on my kids after they bathe and this seemed to have it. The kids liked the design of the bottles a lot as well.

So I was thinking how to make this one fun and I have decided I want to know  your kids' nicknames- all of our kids have nicknames although I don't use the one Kjell has for Justus so I don't remember what it is his is the least frequently used. Kiah we sometimes call Kicks and Karis is often known as baby or baby beluga, and Javan is Javan bojangles. so to enter let me know your kid (s) grandkids godkids whatever nickname you can enter more than once for this I will count every child's nickname as one entry however you can only WIN once- but this will give some people more chances! Also if you click on the picture below you can WIN 1000 SOMEDAY either me or someone who follows my blog better win one of these. Good luck!
the dial brand provided me with a sample of these two products however all opinions are mine.

Purex Natural Elements Tropical Splash Detergent

Ok not fooling around there is a new Purex in town and I really like it! The new product is Purex Natural Elements Tropical Splash Detergent I like this product because it is hypoallergenic and dye free which is great for my kiddos but it has scent, and I don't know about you but I LOVE scent in my laundry detergent. To me the scent is like a nice cup of coconut and tropical fruits and I really enjoy washing my clothes in it. I am glad also I don't have to worry about separating out Javan's clothes because of it gentle enough for his sensitive skin. I don't know if everyone has been able to find the products in the store so to make sure you can check out the store locator . To enter this giveaway please just post on here or on facebook what tropical island you would most like to visit. I will draw three winners of free product coupons on Saturday. Good luck
Once again I was sent a free product in exchange for my review and all the opinions stated here are my own.

Purex Glitter

Purex has outdone themselves this time! I was surprised to find a new bottle at my door and this one is the most fun one yet. It is called Purex glitter. And I kid you not it adds glitter to your clothes! So I will announce a warning that you may not want to get your husband's underwear in the load! The girls have been having a blast picking clothing items to put in to add a touch of glitter we have done dresses, pjs you name it the girls want their clothes to sparkle. I will attach a picture of one of the items we have tried. The cool thing about the product is when you are done with the glitter just wash it with a different detergent and it is gone. I only have one coupon for this product and since it's so super special sign up today ONLY. Just leave me a comment about what clothing item you would like to see sparkle either on here or on facebook! Good luck!
