OHMYGRANNY. Do y'all love to smell yummy things like I do? Nothing makes me love my home more than when it smells all clean and fresh and pretty. I mean, I like it to BE clean and fresh, too, but OH how I love to walk through the door here at FriedOkra Manor and be met with a schnoz-full of loveliness.
Which is why when the lovely and talented Lora of Vita Familiae emailed to offer me some free samples of her wonderful line of natural cleaning products in delicious scents like lavender and cinnamon, I practically tripped over my keyboard trying to get back to her with an all-caps YES PLEASE followed by forty-leven exclamation points. And man, she shipped me some of the best smellin' stuff I've ever lain my nose upon, too. I got a 16 oz. bottle of lavender disinfecting spray and a 16 oz bottle of cinnamon All-Purpose Cleaner.
I immediately FORCED myself, after one levitation-inducing sniff of the All-Purpose Cleaner, to put it aside for y'all, and I laid claim to the lavender disinfecting spray. ALL FOR ME, people. Sorry! I hotfooted it upstairs to my STANKY master bathroom, which Al denies is stanky but my pregnant nose finds grody-to-the-total- max just hours after I last cleaned it, and I sprayed down every surface with my lavender disinfectant and wiped it all with a clean cloth. Then I sprayed the towels and rugs. Then I marched myself out of the bathroom and into the master bedroom and I stripped the sheets and blankets off in a mad frenzy and I sprayed more lavender disinfecting spray on my mattress and headed downstairs with my sheets and mattress pad, which I tossed into the washing machine on HOT and washed 'em to within and inch of their lives. When they were all clean and dry, I put them back on the bed and doused THEM with lavender spray, too. And DANG people, for the next 3 days when you walked into the master suite (I know -- La di dah!) it was like walking into a field of wild lavender, which is a vast improvement over the locker room/portapotty combo I had goin' on. I am HOOKED on this stuff.
I love that it's made with all natural ingredients - "safe for the tiniest feet" as the label reads (and the label also has the cutest picture of a sweet little baby footy that makes me get all squooshy inside when I look at it, even though right now BABY FEET? MY FRIENDS? NOTSOMUCH! Hello, solar plexus!)
I love it so much that I feel compelled to share with you all the fresh yummy natural cleanliness. It'd be a crime to keep it all to myself, and I, people, would make a lousy criminal. (I have an overactive guilt complex and the inability to ever do anything on the sly. Heck, I'd like to plan a surprise party for Al's 45th birthday this year except WHOOPS! See what I mean? GEEZ!)
So I'm ready to give away the bottle of cinnamon All-Purpose cleaner to one lucky commenter, this coming Tuesday morning.
Y'all go check out the barefoot home essentials online catalog and come back and tell me in the comments of this post which of their products looks like it'd make YOUR nose the happiest and home the naturally cleanest. That's all you have to do to be entered for a free 16 oz. bottle of All-Purpose Cleaner. Make sure there's a way to contact you online included in your comment PLEASE!
