Better than Bleach

Many of you have asked me what I use to get my whites clean. I use Tilex Mold and Mildew remover. This baby can get out any stain and is way better than bleach! Just spray the cleaner directly onto the clothes and toss them in the washing machine. ONLY use on whites and do not let them soak in the cleaner for too long - spray them and then wash them asap.
A big thanks to my sisters-in-law Marie and Shawna for this laundry tip!
The best part is now they sell Tilex Mold and Mildew Remover at Costco!!

Scrub Free + Mr. Clean = Clean Shower

A while ago Leesa and I were talking about cleaning and what products we use to get the best results. She asked me what I used to clean the bathtub/shower. I told her I used Scrub Free and a Mr. Clean Magic Eraser and that it worked like magic.
She later told me that she called her Mom and told her she had just cleaned her tub and it was like one of those commercials where the cleaned part just glows white.
My sister Krysta gets the credit for this - I don't know how she figured out to combine these two products, but I'm glad she did. Beware: First you will be disgusted, and then amazed!

Spray your tub with this cleaner - let sit for 3-5 minutes and then scrub using the Mr. Clean Magic Eraser. (May need to be repeated 2 or 3 times the first time you clean your tub.)

P.S. If anyone knows how to get dry-erase marker out of clothes please share. My kids have ruined too many things with those darn markers!
