Spring cleaning. Ugh. It’s that time! It is so hard on my hands, even when I wear gloves. I say that because after about 10 minutes the gloves come off. I can’t clean effectively with gloves on, come on! Especially not the kind of clean that is worthy of being called Spring cleaning, and the cleaning chemicals are just ick.
Every once in awhile, I come across a how-to book that knocks my socks off. Mrs. Meyers Clean Home happens to be one of them! The real Mrs. Meyers dispenses extremely helpful advice that inspires you to really clean and make things shine without harmful chemicals. Believe it or not, ketchup is on her list of cleaning products, so is cream of tartar. Aren’t you curious now?
Since I’m literally “movin’ on up” this week to a bigger casa, it’s been the perfect opportunity to test out Mrs. Meyers sage wisdom as we clean for inspection. Everything in this place will be in tip-top shape and shine like never before, likely cleaner than when we moved in. Anything that you need to clean, there’s a how-to in this book!
When the Spring cleaning starts to cause wear and tear on your hands, reach for a hand cream like Yes To Tomatoes Tender Touch Hand Cream. It’s a vitamin rich formula and also uses lycopene from tomatoes as a powerful anti-oxidant to help stop the free radical attacks that are making your hands look more like they belong to a sea creature than a pageant Queen!
I love the soft scent that reminds me of baby powder and the non-greasy texture of this hand cream. Tender Touch contains 99.6% natural ingredients like watermelon extract, green pepper extract, and red tea which I find to be an intriguing combination and I’m curious to know how some great mind came up with that! I think it would also be super helpful if maybe 2 nights out of the week you put this on and slept with some light-weight cotton gloves on to have more of an impact. Then you’ll really look like a pageant Queen!
