Gaffer Tape #Review and #Giveaway #GafferTape

I am always on the lookout for tape I can use around the house. Clear tape does not always seem to do the trick, and I do not like the sticky residue left behind by duct tape.

One of the claims of Gaffer Tape is that it does not leave behind sticky residue. I had to try this out for myself on various surfaces around my house. My family gave me crazy looks as I cut pieces of the tape and placed the tape on different surfaces in my house. I left the tape there for several days. It did not leave behind any residue. I love this! Most times, tapes leave behind that residue so you have to spend extra time cleaning the surface trying to remove it. I no longer have to worry about that with this tape.

My husband used the tape in the garage. I really don’t know what he used it for because I rarely enter his “man cave,” but he said he liked it.

Gaffer Tape sticks well to surfaces. I put some of it around a vitamin bottle and ran water over it for at least 30 seconds. The tape did not come off until I removed it; no water was underneath the tape.

#GafferTape review and giveaway on http://FinallyStayAtHomeMomma.com

We just finished using some tape to hold together a music stand so my daughter could practice her instrument for band. We had no idea the stand was broken, and the nearest place to get a stand is 30 minutes away. We will wait until this weekend to get a new one. For now, the tape is doing the job!

Soap Nuts Liquid Laundry Detergent #Review #GVP

Soap Nuts Liquid for HE washers and regular top loading washers

Soap Nuts Liquid for HE washers and regular top loading washers

I have heard of soap nuts.  They are from an Asian soapberry tree, and the nuts are harvested.  The nuts are then dried and saponin is extracted from them.  Saponin is a natural detergent and is non-toxic.

Green Virgin Products sells soap nuts and soap nut liquid.  I received the Soap Nuts Liquid in an 8-ounce bottle.  I was skeptical as it claims to last 120 loads in a high-efficiency washer.  I became even more skeptical when it says it contains the detergent and the fabric softener.  How can this little bottle clean my laundry and soften it at the same time using two pumps from the dispenser?

Tink decided she wanted to do laundry first.  She never volunteers for laundry but loves trying new products.  She started a load of laundry, and I asked her if she put in the Soap Nuts Liquid.  She said she did but added some of the other laundry detergent “just in case.”  Ummmmmm…I told her we needed to do laundry without the regular detergent so we could actually review it.  She laughed.

Tink did more laundry and only used Soap Nuts Liquid.  Martha did some laundry, and I did as well.  We liked how the clothes smelled clean without having any scent added to it.  The clothes were also soft and clean.  We were hoping it passed hubby’s test.  Hubby has sensitive skin and new detergents and fabric softeners can cause him to itch.  It passed hubby’s test.  We didn’t even tell him we switched.

We have been using Soap Nuts Liquid for three weeks.  It only takes two pumps from the dispenser to do a normal load of laundry.  I still have quite a bit of detergent left in the bottle.  I will continue to use it.

You can purchase Soap Nuts Liquid and Soap Nuts on Green Virgin’s website.  Green Virgin offers other eco-friendly and non-toxic products for yourself and your home.  Green Virgin offers an option to add a pre-spotter to the detergent.  I did not have the pre-spotter but if my children were younger, I would add it.

I am very impressed with this detergent and fabric softener.  My clothes have never felt so clean and soft.  I love knowing I am not adding things not needed to my laundry.  I love having a non-toxic laundry detergent.

Check out Green Virgin’s website.  You will be impressed!

Rainbow Bandz Loom Kit Review #loomkit #review

I did not understand the rainbow band craze.  I mean, how much “fun” could be had making a bracelet from rubber bands?  Clearly I forgot the fun I had creating things when I was a tween.

Tink wanted a rainbow loom for Christmas.  It was a last-minute decision, so I did not research choices.  I picked up the first one i found.  She had fun creating with it, but the hook that was included with her kit did not hold up to the pressure needed to hook the bands together.  I was disappointed because I did not research and see if it would last.  I bought her a crochet needle and she resumed the looming.

The opportunity came along for me to review the Rainbow Bandz Loom Kit.  I decided it would be fun for Tink to try.  Tink fell in love with this from the moment she opened it.  She loves that you can hook multiple looms together to create wider and longer designs.  The hook is sturdier than what she has had in the past and has endured making many bracelets.  The rubber bands are latex-free so she can make designs for Dad without worrying about him having a reaction to the latex.

Tink was having so much fun designing that Martha had to jump on the loom train as well.  Martha is learning how to make different bracelets and is using the manual that came with the kit.

I would buy the Rainbow Bands Loom Kit for family members and friends of my daughters.  It will last a long time and the possibilities are endless as to what can be created.  If you want to buy the Rainbow Bands Loom Kit, you can find it at Amazon.

Adovia Mineral Lift #Serum #Review

I am falling in love with Advoia’s skin care line.  I have reviewed several things from this company, and I have not been disappointed.  I jumped at the chance to review the Mineral Lift Serum.

After turning 40, I realized I need to start doing something to my skin.  I am not a makeup wearer and have been able to skip a lot of beauty things that others have not.  I have started noticing dry patches on my skin and fine lines are starting to appear.  Of course I had no idea on where to start with beauty products so I was happy when this opportunity came.

Adovia Mineral Lift Serum review

I love this product.  It absorbs quickly into my skin without leaving it feeling oily or greasy.  It is water-based and has a light, fresh fragrance.  It gives my skin the right amount of moisture.  I use this daily.  I have not noticed whether it “lifts” my skin or not, but I do like it as a moisturizer.

You can purchase this product on Amazon.

Bamboo Cutting Boards–Three Piece Set Review

Disclosure: I got this product as part of an advertorial.

Cutting boards are an important part of a kitchen tool set. Eventually something will need to be cut whether it be meats, vegetables, fruits, cheeses, or breads. I have tried various types of cutting boards.

Before this review, I had the mat-type cutting boards. I liked them because they did not take up a lot of space in the dishwasher. As time went on, they were no longer straight so they did not lay flat on the counter. Also, they could possibly slide on the counter which is a safety issue.

I was happy to receive the bamboo cutting boards to review. One of the things I like is how there are three sizes. You can cut meat and vegetables for a meal without having to worry about cross-contamination since there is more than one bamboo cutting board. The knives slide easily on the board giving you the cut you want. After using them, I wash them in hot, soapy water and let them dry. I have not tried putting them in the dishwasher because I am afraid that after prolonged exposure to the high heat they may warp.

You can purchase these eco-friendly bamboo cutting boards on Amazon for a great price.  You can click on the picture to take you directly to the Amazon page, or you can click this link.
