Father’s Day Ideas for Dad + HM #187

One of my favorite things in the world it do is to travel! But we haven’t done too much of that since the twins were born – it’s a LOT of work to load up and travel with 2 toddlers, let me tell you! I’ve been getting the itch to try it, though, so I found some great ideas for me AND for you!

Automatic Soap Dispensers that Will Make Your Bathroom More Elegant

Years ago, when my hubby and I were doing our wedding registry, we saw this really cool automatic soap dispenser. I wanted SO BADLY to add it to our registry, but it seemed a bit frivolous to me, and I couldn’t bring myself to do it!

The funny thing was, when we were opening gifts from one of our showers, someone had actually bought us that dispenser even though we never registered for it! I was beside myself! And we LOVED that dispenser for quite a few years – until CoCo the Black Kitty knocked it off the kitchen sink onto the ceramic tile floor…and then the dispenser ceased to…dispense. It was such a sad day.

Fast-forward to present day and I’m juggling 21-month-old twins, a husband, a dog, and still CoCo the Black Kitty, and the automatic soap dispenser is sounding better and better! So when Amina from Today Best Reviews contacted me about a piece on automatic soap dispensers for the bathroom, I thought it was just perfect! Let’s see her recommendations!

Welcome to your new and elegant bathroom! Does this sound like a dream that seems impossible to come true? It did to me also. However, there are some ways to update your bathrooms even if you’re on a budget or lack the spare time you need to go shopping. Automatic soap dispensers are some of the most elegant and healthy choices you can make for your home.

Automatic soap dispensers are usually made for your bathroom. However, you can place them just about anywhere you or someone from the family needs hand washing – in an outdoor garden, in the kitchen or in the garage. They may seem like just an additional item to place in your bathroom. Yet, soap dispensers make up for the traditional soap holders that collect bacteria every time one touches them.

What to Look for in Automatic Soap Dispensers

Hand-washing works for two purposes which automatic soap dispensers should meet – hygiene and cleaning. According to Today Best Reviews, dispensers should be built to cover both requirements while compensating with modern design and features that ensure no spilling. Product reviews, which you should read more of before purchasing, also discuss about resistance and maintenance of such products.

Automatic soap dispensers stand out among manual options and you don’t need to touch them at all. Even though some are battery-powered, they usually come with low consumption mechanisms. These are the basic features that any automatic soap dispenser should have:

  • Touchless instant or dispensing under one second.
  • Silicone valves which ensure no spilling when the product is not in use.
  • Adjustable volume which can be set once for future dispensing requests.
  • Affordable and convenient prices.
  • Long-lasting materials which avoid fingerprints remaining on the products.

New Product Review: CLR!

If you’ve been around the blog at all, you know that I try to clean as naturally as possible in my home. With twins under the age of 2, natural cleaning products are especially important to me, since these girls can get into ANYTHING pretty quickly. VERY quickly, actually. 

But every once in a while, one of my natural cleaning concoctions just doesn’t cut it. Case in point:

CLR Review 2

This is the automatic ice/water dispenser on our refrigerator.

Now, we just TODAY celebrated our one-year anniversary of moving into this house. And I have now been trying to clean this up for an entire year! I gave it a lot of special attention just now during my Spring Cleaning checklist, and I STILL wasn’t happy with it!

New Product Review: CLR! #springcleaning #calciumlimerust Click To Tweet

The hard water here is to blame, and a water softener IS on our list of improvements, but for right now, this is what I had to work with. And my natural ideas just weren’t cutting it at all.

So when Kasie from CLR contacted me and asked if I was interested in review a couple of their products, I figured, why not! So she sent me over the original CLR concentrate, and the CLR Bath & Kitchen Foaming Action Cleaner.
