Purex Natural Elements Review and Giveaway

The weekend is here again which can only mean one thing.....nope it is not time to party those days are behind us. It is time to catch up on laundry *sigh*. If you are like me you swear time and time again that you aren't going to let your laundry get away from you, let those stains and smells collect all over your laundry pile. Luckily Purex has just the detergent I needed to make this weekend just a little more tropical.
Recently in the mail I received a bottle of Purex Natural Elements as part of the Purex Insiders program. When I opened it to start my first load of laundry this weekend I couldn't believe how good it smelled! I have mentioned before that I love to smell laundry soap.lol Yeah you know you do it to don't judge ;) The new Purex Natural Elements is a scent that I hadn't smelled before in a laundry detergent. I am going to say it is kind of a pineapple coconut mix. Anyways enough about the smell :) This laundry soap is perfect for my middle son who has severe skin condition! It is dye free and made with natural products where possible. Like most laundry soaps it was really easy to use, simply add a capful to the wash and off you go! It cleaned really well with the new dirt lift technology. When I threw it in the dryer was the biggest surprise. I was outside pulling weeds and I could smell the tropical smell coming from the dryer vent. Mmmmm...........The people at Purex want to share this experience with you. I have 3 product coupons to give away to one lucky winner! Just enter on the rafflecopter below for a chance to win!

Homemade Fly Traps

We all love summer but as the weather gets warmer the flies get worse and worse. We have a bush out front of our house that I swear just attracts every fly in town! I wanted to get rid of them but I didn't want to kill all the wonderful butterflies it also attracts. So I went about finding a new way to kill them all. I had some empty Tazo tea bottles I simply poked a pen sized whole in the top, added 1/2 cup of water, 1 tablespoon of sugar, 1 tablespoon of dish soap, and 1 tablespoon of syrup.Now I do find that these work better if you place them in the sun :O) If you want to use a bigger container simply multiply the ingredients. Make sure your hole is only about the size of a pen cap! Then they can't seem to get back out.lol

Jello Hard Candy

Most hard candies call for corn syrup, but since I was out and I have 3 children home I decided to experiment and make something fun! Here is what you need:
2 Cups of Sugar
2 Cups of Water
1 Package Sugar Free Jello
A candy Thermometer

Making candy is a pretty tricky process and trust me I messed up a batch or two getting this to work right.lol Put the sugar and water into the pot and turn on medium whisking well till the sugar is dissolved. Stirring pretty regularly to help the sugar from burning. As the sugar begin to boil turn the heat up to high. Watch your thermometer when the candy reaches 230 pour in the jello continuing to mix. Pour this mixture immediately into a cake pan that is lined with parchment paper of you can rub a little veggie oil in it. The candy will continue to cook as it melts anything over 230 you will be left with a burnt candy that tastes like licorice.lol After you candy is cooled completely turn it out onto a cookie sheet and break apart :O) I like to dust mine …

Killing Ants Safely

LOL okay I know the title seems a bit silly. Here is West Texas ants are a BIG problem. Not only do they bite, but well they are really annoying! They sneak into every crack in your house no matter how hard you try. With pets though you are very limited to the products you can safely use to kill ants. As time goes on more and more I am concerned about the products I keep in this house and the effect they have on not only me and my children, but my pets. When looking for ways to rid myself of these pests I found a simple, cheap, and effective means to do so. CORNMEAL! Yep it is very simple, for about $2 a bag I can treat weekly for an entire year! While it doesn't kill them all it has certainly brought down the population so that now it isn't even noticeable. All you do it sprinkle it on top of their mounds and watch the greedy little ants drag it all inside! When eaten it expands and POOF! ;O) You get the picture.
