Kanye West got emotional as he addressed ‘losing his family’ at his album listening party, in front of estranged wife Kim Kardashian. The 44-year-old rapper…
From CB: Last week I got this corner shower caddy for my walk in shower. I can’t believe I have one of those now but it didn’t have enough storage before. My toiletries look organized now! It was easy to put together, looks nice and seems sturdy. I also ordered another one of these excellent cell phone holders from Lamicall, this time for my son’s car. I’ve been planning to deep clean my house and so I have more products for that this week. Here are some more things Hecate and I are looking at on Amazon.
A trusted lime and rust remover to clean coffee pots, washing machines and more
From CB: I’ve been thinking about buying cleaning tablets for my washing machine as my dark clothes are getting white stains on them. I looked through reviews for those and one person recommended CLR instead. This multipurpose cleaner is so affordable at under $5 for 28 ounces. I’ve ordered it and am excited to get my washing machine working well again. This has 4.6 stars, almost 7,000 ratings and a B on Fakespot. Reviewers say it cleans rust and calcium stains really well. “It immediately made my calcium scum dishwasher 90% cleaner. My clothes washer repairman was the one who told me about it.” “I use this about every 6 weeks to clean out my washer. ONE empty load with CLR and the rust was gone!” “It works like magic and clean my hot water pot in exactly 2 mins.”
Patches to reduce fine lines and wrinkling
From CB: I’ve noticed in photos that I have these deep lines between my eyebrows. I don’t want to get Botox yet as I’m afraid it will make me look too different. I was looking at patches called Frownies designed to reduce the depth of those lines, called glabella lines. You pull your skin tight and apply them for several hours or overnight. However I opted for these patches by Blumbody which can treat more areas of the face. Last night I used them for the first time and I really did notice a difference in the morning! Plus I barely noticed them on my face and was able to sleep as usual. People say that they’re astonished with the results. These have over 3,000 ratings, 3.7 stars and a B on Fakespot, which is similar to Frownies. You get 165 patches for $17. Reviewers write “I’ve been using these patches 5 days a week for a month and the difference gets more noticeable every week! I had tried Frownies and they were horrible compared to these and Smoothies are more expensive for less strips and less variety.” “I am 51 years old and people have asked me several times if I do Botox.” “A Botox alternative that‘s not only super cheap, but also delivers results over night?? ‘HAS to be too good to be true’ I thought when I ordered these.. but I stand corrected.” “I wore 1 patch over night (because that’s all I needed for my scowl lines), and they are completely gone. I may just be lucky, but I am 6 days out from wearing a single patch over ONE night, and the lines are only just now starting to reappear.”
A spin mop that’s better than O-Cedar and comes with three mop heads
From CB: I have a Shark steam cleaner but honestly I don’t use it enough and consider it a pain to clean the floors. I keep seeing YouTubers with the O-Cedar mop, but that has a lot of reviews calling it flimsy and small. This spin mop by Aootek comes with three mop heads and a bucket, similar to the O-Cedar model, that keeps the dirty water separate from the clean water. I’ve ordered it but haven’t tried it yet. It’s competitively priced and has over 8,700 reviews, 4.4 stars and a B on Fakespot. Reviewers say that it’s lightweight and makes mopping easier and faster. “I usually use a steam cleaner, however this is just as good when you use hot water and so much easier.” “I have been amazed how great this Spin Mop is. I have tried other floor cleaners and this one is the best. Others left streaks, were too wet, and hard to move. This Spin Mop is not too wet, easy to move and the floor looks clean and no streaks”
A cordless vacuum and mop all in one
From CB: I just found out that Shark has a vacuum and mop all in one! It’s called the Vacmop, it’s light and rechargeable and uses disposable pads which are currently .80 each if you buy a 30 pack. You can reuse the pads if you’re just doing light jobs and not cleaning your whole house or a large wet spill. This has over 15,000 ratings, 4.5 stars and a B on Fakespot. People say it’s easy to setup and use and that it both vacuums and mops well. “I like how it scrubs the floor while also picking up small debris. In the past I have used the Swiffer WetJet product and though it left a shine on the floor, it dragged dust and debris across the clean surfaces. Also I always had to buy refill cleaning fluid bottles with the Swiffer but what’s great about the Vacmop is you get to put whichever cleaning fluid you like.” “Absolutely love this product. Great suction power and pick up ability! My floors look awesome in half the time versus sweeping and mopping!” “I’ve now used this on my whole house and I LOVE it! The suction is awesome, all those little crevices that dirt always stick in comes clean with the suction power. The spray mop is awesome and the cleaner leaves your floor clean and shiny.”
Roll on essential oils for effortless self care
From Hecate: I use essential oils in my Saturday soak baths but I don’t think I use them effectively enough in my life. Ever since CB introduced me to the Migraine Stick that’s worked so well in my pain management, I’m completely sold on oil roll ons. I just bought this trio of oils for Stress, Balance and Sleep. Each roller uses a combination of oils to help the user relax. They smell so good. I only just got them and I’ve used the Balance and Stress so far. They instantly calm me down when I put them on. The only thing I’ve noticed is the scent doesn’t last long. I know I’m absorbing the oil but I’d like to be able to get whiffs when I lift my wrists. The trio cost about $13 but I used the 5% coupon Amazon is offering right now. The rollers received 4.5 stars from 935 reviews. Fakespot gave them a B. Commenters said both the oils and the price help with their stress, “For the price of $13, you get three roll-on essential oils that are really decently sized and smell AMAZING. As a stressed out college student during the pandemic, these have really helped me and I’m so grateful for them!” Another said the sleep roller really helped, “My favorite is the Sleep one. It have really helped to increase my sleeping hours.” I haven’t tried the Sleep yet because I’ve been having some Migraine issues so I’ve been leaning on the Migraine Stick at night. But I can’t wait to try it.
A clean/dirty dish magnet to reduce confusion in your house
From Hecate: I am very fortunate that my family is fairly good about putting dishes in the dishwasher (fairly, let’s not give out any awards). However, there’s always a question of whether the dishes in the machine are clean or not. And guessing usually leads to the clean dishes getting dirty and having to be rewashed. So now we rely heavily on our clean/dirty magnet. Ours was a gift my son’s friend made, a beautiful piece of two-tone glass. But I love how sleek this one from Amazon is. Plus it’s stainless steel so it would match nicely if you have a stainless finish to your appliances. The little slide would make it so easy. It’s normally $13 but right now it’s on sale for $9. It earned 4.9 stars from over 7,000 reviews and Fakespot gave it an A. Some reviewers said it stays put, “I love how it’s hard to take off so if there are children running around they cannot take it off the dishwasher, it’s designed great.” And kids can’t play dumb anymore, “it’s something so simple but my little ocd heart loves seeing it and knowing the kids now have no excuse to unload/load the dishwasher with the common line of “I don’t know if it’s clean or dirty.”
A tie dye kit makes a fun craft project
From Hecate: I know tie dying is really easy but somehow I always seem to mess it up. I love kits like this because it comes with all the accessories and a user guide for inspiration. There’s something about summer that gets me excited about tie dye. It’s such a great summer activity. I tend to overdo it and soon I have socks, headwraps and bras that embarrass my kids. The kits come in six different color combos and they’re usually $20 a kit but this week they’re on sale ranging from $8-$17. But you can make several items from one kit so that’s a pretty good deal. Over 5,700 reviewers gave these 4.8 stars and Fakespot gave them a B. Reviewers say the products hold up well, “Easy to use. Have held up well to multiple washes,” and “Great product! Easy to use and the colors set nicely! It also had a great pamphlet with dying techniques that was very helpful!” Maybe I’ll make some pet collars or harnesses. Pets don’t get embarrassed!
