Kid Proof – The Fabric Protectant Every Parent Should Own

Kid proof

Need to Kid-Proof some things around your house? Perhaps we can’t keep glass from breaking or tools from going missing, but Kid Proof Resistant spray can keep your fabric a bit safer from spills and stains. What I love about Kid Proof is that it is not to clean up the messes, but to be used proactively to treat fabrics incase of spills.

Fabric protectant

This means you can go Kid Proof happy around your house with this nano technology fabric protectant spray bottle then have a bit more peace of mind going through your days. This is because when you spray those surfaces you want protected as I did with my dining chairs, you only need to wait about 24 hours so that product can set itself up into protection mode for you. When you protect your surfaces with Kid Proof it will do its job for about 15 washes before you need to retreat.

treat fabric

Kid Proof is non-toxic and safe for kids and pets. See liquid and spills roll right off the treated fabric. Use it on your car upholstery, kids clothing, favorite blankets and stuffies, pet toys…you name it. If it has fabric and is a favorite, spray it down with Kid Proof. It does not stain.

My Three Backyard Entertaining Must have Items for Summer

Backyard Entertaining

We all have plenty of time on our hands and I am not sure about everyone else, but I am starting some home projects and getting the yard ready for summer. The patio is pressure washed, the patio furniture is out and wiped down and we have begun using the smoker and grill already on nice spring days. This summer we have a new addition to my “outdoor wall” of summer backyard essentials – the NewAir 15” Built-in 90 Can Outdoor Beverage Fridge in Weatherproof Stainless Steel.

Outdoor fridge

This NewAir fridge was build to be outside and will stand up to some of the toughest outdoor weather conditions. We expect our friend to finish extending our patio when work resumes after quarantine and then we’ll have even more surface to cook on while backyard entertaining. As we improve our backyard it makes having a fridge outside more and more handy.

No more lugging coolers and filling with ice to keep drinks cold. This is what I used to do for a couple of reasons. The first reason I work to keep beverages outside when entertaining is to keep the slider from being opened so many times and our A/C appreciates that. The other reason is keeping insects and dirt out of the house. I have always been complimented on having this small beverage fridge available for guests.

Peek inside the Sluka backyard fridge….

From Gatorade to beer and waters everyone is welcome around the fridge and it also comes in handy as a little extra table top space when I really get cooking.

What are My Three Backyard Essentials when Entertaining in Summer?

Grill: Simply the best way to cook meats especially so many at once. Having a grill with a shelf like I do also allows me to keep the cooked meats warm so guests can grab fresh meat anytime they are ready.

Smoker: I don’t know why I did not buy one sooner. Have you ever had homemade smoked mac n cheese with grilled steak and an ice cold beer? The perfect summer meal! You can experiment with different pellet/chip woods, and you throw your meat on in the morning and leave it alone until done in the afternoon in time to feed your guests. It allows you more room in ovens and the grill when the meats are in the smoker and sides on the grill/oven or vice versa.

Outdoor Fridge: As I mentioned earlier it keeps the door to your home closed more often in the summer and brings you a ton of compliments of convenience from your friends and family. Make sure you go for a top-rated outdoor fridge that can weather any conditions outside such as the NewAir 15” Built-in 90 Can Outdoor Beverage Fridge in Weatherproof Stainless Steel. See my full review of all features of this unit – HERE!

NewAir outdoor

I personally don’t like my beverages displayed on the outside like many beverage coolers do, but you may and NewAir has other fridge options for inside your home or dorms with different designs. It’s the stainless steel on my fridge that helps it weather the outdoors. This one can be built-in or freestanding. Simply the best addition to your home or yard is a quality fridge from NewAir.
