CFA is Chick Fil-a. I have been craving their cole slaw this entire pregnancy. And there isn't one to be found in this state or a nearby state. :sigh

Off to work on some stuff, I'll post after I get some things DONE.

charla
12-30-2008, 09:55 AM
switched laundry
cleaned one bathroom except for the floor
started on the other bathroom

I ran out of toilet bowl cleaner so had to take a break to find a recipe for homemade cleaner. I found one I'm going to try. I keep thinking I'll run out of all of these commercial cleaners sooner or later with all of the cleaning I'm doing, but they seem to be a bottomless pit. I hoping to switch over to natural homemade products as they run out (I'm too frugal to throw them out).

charla - I use baking soda & vinegar to clean my toilets. It works well & vinegar is a natural disinfectant. And cheap to boot! And I can have my kids help w/o worries. :)

Thanks, Kimberly. That's the recipe that I researched and tried. It's great!!! Gotta love that foaming action. :yes I've also been using your miracle carpet cleaner and it works really well, too. In fact, I'm going to have to make more soon.

Okay so I spent my lunchtime researching natural cleaners.

Off to check laundry...
