It is Halloween today, which means lots of cute kids, fun costumes, yummy candy, and of course, sticky fingerprints and melted chocolate! How are you going to get those stains out of your kid’s clothing?

With my powerful stain removers, of course! You can use Formula 1 or Formula 2 to remove tough stains from the bigger kids, or Bye Bye Baby for the wee ones. Do you have big plans tonight? Will you be passing out candy? Would love to hear from you!


The weather man told me cold weather was headed our way, so I thought it would be a great time to share my best cold weather tip with you! But first, you must go get all your cozy winter sweaters out of the boxes in the basement or attic.

Did you get them?

Do they smell a bit musty?

If they do, have no fear. Just toss them in the dryer with a fabric softener sheet or two and a damp wash cloth! Turn the dryer to the “air” or “no heat” setting and turn it on. Check the sweaters after a few minutes. They should smell much better! This tip is best for items that are dry clean only. If you have washable items, you might as well just toss them in the wash.

Stay warm this week!
