Mr. Clean Magic Eraser

November 5, 2006

I’d like to know what they put in these sponges because they really are magical. I refused to buy them at first because they were a little pricey but I gave in when my kids wrote on the playroom walls with crayons and pens and nothing was working to get the stains off. I tried 409, diluted Fairy, and Windex. Mr. Clean Magic Erasers took everything off in one easy swipe. No elbow grease involved. I used them again the other day when my son wrote on his furniture with magic marker. Worked like a charm.

The only problem I have with the product is that it disintegrates quickly so it doesn’t last long. Considering that I only use it for really difficult stains that don’t come off with any other product, it’s not a big problem.

If you have children who are a little on the artistic side and have a problem with keeping all magic markers and crayons being out of reach when you’re not looking – this product is a must-have.


Kitchen Basics

June 13, 2006

I've been using liquid stock by Kitchen Basics for a few months now. This stuff is AWESOME. Let me explain why.

Years ago, I became obsessed with reading food labels. I was shocked to find so many additives in what I thought would be simple food. What was even more shocking was that I found ingredients like MSG and trans-fats in bouillon cubes and liquid stock. Kitchen Basics has no MSG and no trans-fats. It's made with all-natural ingredients and is gluten free. 

The stock comes in tetra-paks so it's easy to store in your cupboard or pantry. Once opened, you place it in the fridge.

The stock doesn't need to be diluted so you open and pour, that's it. I can't tell you how much better liquid stock tastes over stock made with bouillon cubes. Kitchen Basics stock is delicious in everything I've used it in including rice pilaf, pasta sauces, and soups.

I can't recommend this product enough.
