Cleaning for Your Health

We all know that we should keep our homes clean for the sake of our health. We can't avoid all germs, bacteria, and mold. But can we do a better job? And with natural cleaners like vinegar, salt, lemon juice, and more? I'm on a quest to find out. I cannot stand the smell of vinegar, but there are so many claims that it cleans so well. I'll have to admit that I was more than impressed when my husband used it to clean the hard water build up under the rim of our toilets a couple of weekends ago. I use Lime Away from time to time, but there was still a gross buildup of hard water stains under the rim. After a bit of scrubbing with  my Lime Away, my husband poured vinegar into the toilet bowl and the fill gage in the tank. So much more of that gunk came out from under that rim when he did that. And the flush is so much more powerful now. There's a nice swirl when we flush. So, from now on, once a week, I'll do a Lime Away and vinegar treatment in the toilet bowl. No more once in a while. 

So, that got me to thinking of all the natural cleaning uses that so many of our household items have. I have collected many of these natural cleaning books, etc. over the years. So, I'm going to start putting those to the test so we'll know which ones work well. Vinegar will be our first testing agent starting next Monday. These are definitely cheaper than the cleaning products on the market. And if they get rid of unwanted odors in the kitchen, bathrooms, and carpet as well as remove grease, stains, and more, why not at least give them a try?

Love Never Fails

 After Saul (Paul) was converted from Judaism, in which he was a trained priest, to Christianity on the road to Damascus, he spent a few years learning how to be a better person for God's new work in Christ. After God prepared him, Paul started preaching the Good News to people in different cities. One of those cities was Corinth in Greece. When Paul needed to correct - or praise - some teachings of the churches that were established in these cities but couldn't get back to them right away, he would write them letters. One of these letters (often called epistles) is called I Corinthians in the Holy Bible.  The message I want to bring to your attention today is what Paul was telling this church about love. He told them in verse 16:14 to, " Do everything with love. " (NLT) The NKJV read as, " Let all that you do be done with love. " What a difference we could make in the world if we could all follow this beautiful advice.  In the same Book of I Corinthians 13:

New Elderly Tips

I have added some elderly tips  to my Senior Care Memoirs website. We all have a senior in our family, such as a parent or grandparent. Or we see elderly people while we're shopping. They deserve to feel respected and independent. So, I have added these new tips as some helpful advice. Watch for posts to be added to the Senior Care Memoirs site more frequently as new stages evolve in my senior family members' lives.  I hope you enjoy these tips and other upcoming posts. Together, we can figure this out. We're going to fill our blank canvas with helpful information. I won't be posting any future updates to the other site here, so you will want to bookmark it if you're interested in reading this type of information. Thanks for stopping by today.
