What's that Smell? #Clean it up with @NaturalHousePro! {#Giveaway}

Do you ever get the feeling (or smelling, as it were) that maybe your home might have an odor? Certainly, there are odor hot spots that can make us cringe; the bathroom, the sink, the trash can. Can you relate? We certainly can and recently our big outdoor trash can had taken on a monstrous odor. So much so that everyone dreaded actually having to open the lid. Yes, it was that powerful.

Luckily for us, Natural House had asked us if we'd like to try out their revolutionary new natural household cleaning products that clean the parts of your home you'd rather forget about. The Natural House probiotic cleaners are named Trashy, Sinky and Flushy. Clever names we thought. Heck ya, we'd love to I said! Clean that monster trash can odor? Bring it on! Could this possibly work? We set out on a month-long mission to find out.

Trashy, Sinky and Flushy are non-toxic and safe for use in your home yet strong enough to use in a commercial setting. Here's some additional information right from Natural House:

  • Our products use an eco-friendly cleaning method of probiotics that create a beneficial, odor eating ecosystem to naturally drive out and digest odors at their source.
  • Natural House's plant-based ingredients are eco-friendly, non-toxic and biodegradable to naturally fight the toughest problems you face in your house. 
  • Our products, Sinky and Flushy even break down and digest fats, oil, grease, and solid waste to ensure your disposal, pipes, drain lines or septic tank run smoothly.
  • Our cleaners contain good probiotics which continue to scour, clean, consume odors, grime, grease, and germs, and they continue to do so until your next weekly treatment! 
  • We earned the coveted Retailers’ Choice Award” at the 2011 National Hardware Show!
  • The surfaces in your house are like a garden. If you don’t seed with good plants, weeds will grow. You have the same choice with your household surfaces: sanitize for a moment with harsh chemicals leaving your surface open to recontamination or seed with probiotics to continuously weed out the bad micro-organisms.
  • Traditional cleaners “clean” a surface for a moment in time; the second the rag is finished wiping the surface, that surface is almost instantly polluted once again with ambient dust, dirt, and micro-organisms.
  • Natural House probiotics creates mini-ecosystem on a microbial level that produces enzymes which break down odors, dirt, fats, oil, grease, food scraps, waste and toilet paper products on a continuous basis between applications. This creates a natural, clean, balanced environment that is safe for even the most sensitive members of your natural house.
  • The action is in the foam! The foam releases the cleaning agents.
  • The short and skinny of it is this... our natural probiotic cleaners keep on cleaning long after you've stopped!

Now onto the tests...

We were more than eager to get the test underway for Trashy. Each of the products comes packaged as a four week supply. Trashy is a convenient little spray bottle with enough for 30 days, you just use 1/4 of the bottle for each application. So into the big stinky trash can we sprayed the wintergreen scented probiotics and crossed our fingers. That first week, and even the second, we really did not notice a difference. On week three the can did indeed smell a little better. Was it a fluke? Week four and everyone opening the lid started to cringe and then looked puzzled. Someone even remarked that the odor was markedly better. Success!

Flushy is a nice fresh mint scent and works to clean not only your toilet bowl but also clean the drain and works as a septic treatment. Ya, I can't believe I put our toilet's photo on the internet either. Toilets are not usually a topic of conversation here at Artsy Chaos but we all have at least one I would hope! Our experience with Flushy was not as noticeable as Trashy but we're excited about the fact that it works to consume some of the gunk that might stay in the drains and pipes. I did notice that the cleaning power of Flushy is not as strong as the regular toilet bowl cleaner that I normally use and did have to supplement cleanings during the test weeks.

We were also excited to test out Sinky which is a disposal scrubber and drain maintenance probiotic cleaner. Sinky has a nice fresh citrus scent. We decided not to use it in the kitchen, but rather, in the bathroom. Our bathroom has double sinks and for some reason when you run the water the drain smells swampy or some other damp moldy type smell. Ya, gross. It's not strong but is not pleasant when you're brushing your teeth. Indeed, after just one use, Sinky helped with the swampy smell in the bathroom sinks. The probiotic power seems to have worked on this problem until the next weekly treatment was due and seemed to last longer progressively with each week of use. Success again!

These natural household cleaning products can be purchased directly from Natural House and also at Amazon. Trashy, Flushy and Sinky each retail for $4.99. Want more information? You can visit the Natural House website and also connect with them on Facebook and Twitter.

Definitely the trash can!

The restroom trash cans smell awful! The smell is just so strongly penetrated into the plastic cans that it seems nothing will ever work to make it go away.

Sit-upon Tutorial By Rachel Beyer

As a former Girl Scout, I have lots of fun camp memories. I remember learning to tie knots, set up camp and to cook over the campfire. An essential Girl Scout tradition is making a sit-upon. A sit-upon is a homemade waterproof cushion. They are easy to make and I remember using them every time we did any activity while sitting on the bare ground, which most often was damp or scattered with uncomfortable sticks and pebbles. A sit-upon is great for sitting around the campfire, your backyard, or even a sporting event. 
There are lots of ways to make a sit-upon. When I was a Brownie Girl Scout, we made ours from old vinyl tablecloths and foam. But in a pinch, you can use a plastic garbage bag and a stack of old newspapers for padding.
To revisit this simple craft project, I decided to use a roll of vintage vinyl wallpaper I found at a thrift store and some foam I bought at my local craft store.

Boring Cash No More!!

Ahhhh! I just learned how to turn money into a really cool work of art!! Seriously, this is really cute and fun too. Foldin' Money can help you turn plain old cash into a really fun crafty gift! It's kind of like paper crafts with a real monetary value. Ha!

Foldin' Money has design kits to help you make the perfect gift for anyone on your list this year. Both US and Canadian currency directions are included in these design kits. For review, we received the "red" kit which has templates and step-by-step directions for a cake, tree, heart, and tie. We found the instructions to be very, very easy to follow. Ladies, I think even your husbands could fold money into the perfect gift! Did that sound rude? Sorry Fellas!

What we found really fun was the endless ways that you could possibly use the Foldin' Money designs. I thought it would be really fun to put one of those little strands of battery operated lights onto the folded money tree! What a fun gift idea and you …

#Halloween Spaghetti & Eyeballs for Sadie Hawkins {The Daily Chaos 10/14/2011}

This post must be written lightening fast because I must leave soon to pick up my daughter from the high school's Sadie Hawkins dance and ferry her and her date to their next destination. How's that for a long, stressful run-on sentence full of far too many prepositional phrases.

We had the distinct pain honor of hosting the dance dinner for 19 teenagers tonight. I don't know about you but I remember Sadie Hawkins as the dance where the guys always said no. Seriously, teenage boys can cut a teenage girl's confidence to shreds. Oh who am I kidding, grown men still do that. So we had dinner in the backyard complete with Halloween lights and a cauldron full of bubbling homemade root beer. My husband loves the homemade root beer and is always the dry ice master chef of the brew. At one point, he came in from outside all dejected because apparently the ladle had fallen into the cauldron and the kids had been trying to fish it out with their hands.... he didn't feel like …
