Yup…it’s a miscellany kind of day, where I have multiple small things to tell you about.
1. The Woolbuddy Giveaway
The felting kit giveaway closes tonight at midnight EST.
EMAIL SUBSCRIBERS! Sadly, I have no way to track entries that are emailed to me.
So, you have to click here and leave a comment to be entered in the giveaway.
2. What I’m reading in 2015
This year, I decided to make a page on the blog to chronicle the books I read this year.
Since I know at least some of you are interested in what I read, I plan to keep it updated each month with 2-4 sentence quick reviews of the books I finish that month.
I added a little “What I’m reading in 2015″ graphic over in the sidebar so you can easily find the page when you wonder what I’ve been reading lately.
(I kind of want to read 52 books this year, which works out to one per week. I thought that might be a high goal for me, but somehow, I’ve read five books so far this month. So, I’m thinkin’ there might actually be 52 books on that page by the end of the year.)
3. I made homemade Soft Scrub!
And it actually seems to work really well.
I mainly use Soft Scrub clean my shower floor and glass shower doors, and I’m pleased to say that the homemade stuff did a good job of cleaning off the cloudiness that’s always plaguing my glass doors.
Since Castile soap is pretty expensive (I got mine at Target. Is somewhere else better??), this only works out to be slightly cheaper than commercial Soft Scrub.
However, since the homemade stuff is more natural than the commercial stuff, I think it’s going to be a win.
I put my extra soft scrub in a wonton soup takeout container, and I’m curious to see how it works after being stored.
I found this recipe in the soon-to-be-released DIY ebook bundle…speaking of which:
4. a DIY ebook bundle is coming on Wednesday!
Since my ebook is in this bundle, I got an early access copy of the bundle and I’ve been working my way through the bundled books this week (thus the soft scrub making!).
I’m not supposed to talk about specific books in the bundle right now, but once the sale launches on Wednesday, I’ll tell you which ones are my favorites and share my opinions on the bonus offers.
For now, you can read a little more about the bundle right here.
I’m off to check out the toilet cleaner recipe now, since toilet bowl cleaner is the last not-natural man standing in my bathroom-cleaning bucket.
(I use Shaklee sprays for surface cleaning and mirrors, and now I have homemade soft scrub for the shower).
Do you guys have any natural toilet-bowl-cleaning ideas? I’d also welcome ideas for the best place to buy castile soap.
