This is one your granny use to rock all the time. It is a great deodorizer and cleanser and is a cheap alternative to other scrubs with tons of chemicals.
This one is the bomb for dissolving scum, stains and mineral deposits and makes your toilet bowl sparkle from just pouring a bit into it. Its super cheap and WORKS..
This eco-friendly form of bleach releases oxygen into clean clothes. It gets rid of dirt in a non-toxic way and brightens fabrics while disinfecting.
Like vinegar, lemon juice helps conquer soap scum and hard water spots.Add some baking soda for extra scrubby goodness.
Essential Oils: These oils are made from plants, fruits and flowers and have anti-fungal and antiseptic properties. Tea tree, lemon and eucalyptus oils work really well for cleaning. Blend a few drops with water in a spray bottle, shake well and get busy cleaning your home the healthy way.

With all the bad press Toyota has been getting, I looked to the positive side of things and remembered the Prius has some pretty good new styling for the 2011 year models and think this won will win new customers and a renewed interest in plug ins.
It's cold here in the D and today I picked up this broth to make some savory soup in the crock pot. Chicken soup hits the spot with a fresh loaf of Avalon organic farm bread.

I'm not a fan of roses or cut flowers in the winter. Trucking and flying all the buds in from all over the world isn't that earth friendly so I keep a stock of different types of bulbs under the kitchen sink and when a holiday or birthday is coming up I start growing some on the kitchen table. Check out your local nursery for sale bulbs and buy some vintage planters at your favorite resale shop and get to work. It is much cooler getting a groovy vintage planter filled with paper whites than some over priced gross red roses on Valentines day.
Valentines day is coming FAST kids and of course I had to try something new in the organic chocolate trade this year. Sweet Earth truffles are the bomb, I ordered one box for my sweetie and ate one box a watching reruns of the Brady Bunch the other night. That Marsha was a mess. www.sweetearthchocolate.com

I didnt find ANYTHING good at the beauty show on the west coast but I saw a ton of overpriced bamboo towels and robes and a certain orange county housewives weird makeup line.
