I have picked up cleaning tips:

I started doing this and will never stop! My tub shower are always spotless-so simple. Simple shower and tub cleaner: fill wand half and half. Wet surface and scrub. wow! leave in shower wash while you are already in there.

I have picked up new recipes:

Seriously, Philly Cheese Steak Sloppy Joes!!! You gotta try these!!!

So, now I’m tackling this:

Because I loved those disks and can’t find them anywhere, anymore. 😦

 

So, round 1 attempt: baking soda, water and Vick’s Vapo Rub (because I didn’t have the oils and I was doing it to help my husband who is dealing with a rotten cough).

Pros: could smell the Vick’s and it cleared MY sinuses up, didn’t fizz or burn the eyes the way the tablets did

Cons: dissolved too quickly, left the shower a bit waxy

So, I’m going to try to stop by a GNC tomorrow and see if I can get the oils, then try this again using her original recipe of leaving them out for 12-18 hours instead of baking them.

Wish me luck!
