Are You Dealing with Stubborn Gas Stove Top Grease and Grime?

Baking soda and a bit of Pure Care dish soap is the way to go! First, remove the grates and generously sprinkle baking soda all over the stove top. Next, spray with a combination of water and a few drops of Pure Care dish soap. Let the mixture sit for a minute or two, then scrub with a sponge and wipe off the baking soda mixture with a damp cloth.

Pass the Pumpkins

This fun Halloween game is similar to the musical chairs game, but with a Halloween twist.

Anyone who is playing stands or sits in a circle. Next, turn on the music and have the player’s start passing a mini pumpkin. If there are several players, you can have the player’s pass multiple pumpkins at a time. The pumpkin (s) will travel around the circle until suddenly, the music stops. Once the music stops, whoever is holding the pumpkin is counted out and leaves the circle. As the player leaves the game, give them a pumpkin and send them to a specified area to decorate it using markers or paint. The best part is that if you have enough pumpkins, everybody wins.

Materials you’ll need:

Mini Pumpkins
Lively Music
Markers and/or Paint

Have fun!

 
 

Keep Your Kitchen Clean

Did you know that your kitchen sink is actually dirtier than bathroom bacteria-wise? Kind of gross when you think about it. It makes sense, though. The kitchen sink gets a lot of use, including rinsing dirty dishes, tossing bits and pieces of food down the garbage disposal and the continual rinsing out germ infused, dirty sponges, cleansers, etc. Still, you would think that our bathrooms, where we take care of our very “personal” business, especially the toilet bowl, would be a bacteria magnet. The truth is that several studies have been conducted over the years, some of them by household cleaning product manufacturers that have confirmed that the bacteria levels in bathrooms aren’t as high as other areas of the home. Tests have also shown that the toilet bowl is actually cleaner than the kitchen sink. You may have heard clever comments online or on TV stating that you’d be better off washing your dishes in the toilet than the kitchen sink when it comes to bacteria – but who is going to do that? Instead, just keep your kitchen sink clean and use a good, non-toxic household cleaner. It just doesn’t make sense to add toxins to the mix.
