FaceSecret Pillowcases are so easy to change so you sleep clean every night

FaceSecret Pillowcases are so easy to change so you sleep clean every night

You probably don’t give much thought to your pillow dander when you fall asleep each night. If you were to be told that you really should change your pillowcase every night for improved skin health and to reduce allergens, you might say ‘fat chance’. Changing pillowcases are a pain! I have some I have to work at getting my pillows into and then those with a tail that hangs off that I awkwardly fold up or bunch up out of sight and call it good enough! Let me tell you about FaceSecret Pillowcases.

FaceSecret Pillowcases are so easy to change so you sleep clean every night. This is because they are designed to fit right over pillows and they will fit no matter the fluff or flatness of your small to king size sleeping pillow. It literally takes seconds to put on. The best part is you can even take it on trips so you can sleep on your FaceSecret rather than a hotel pillow. It includes a carry travel bag.

Appropriately named, FaceSecret pillowcases come in 2 different materials – Satin-Polyester (available in pink, grey and white) and Jersey Cotton (available in grey and white). I have the satin pink and grey for myself and my husband. The quarter inch woven elastic won’t snap  – and has its elastic pull-tie drawstring to ensure that great fit. I thought about older parents and grandparents who may have a hard time shoving pillows into pillowcases and how great this would be for them.

I also learned in my research about FaceSecret pillowcases and their purpose that Satin-Polyester is proven to be essential for the healthy skin and helps with anti-aging (keeps skin smooth on pillowcase and protects delicate areas around face) and to prevent bead head (allows hair to glide rather than tug and damage hair). FaceSecret actually helps the health of your skin and hair as well as become a great barrier to allergens.

If it makes you feel better to make a change to eliminate the haven for dust mites, bed bugs, fungus, dirt, oil, bacteria and more from your standard pillow case habits, FaceSecret is the easiest change you can make. Washing it is easy and it makes a great gift for Mom this Mother’s Day. It is a small business and made in America. Visit FaceSecret to order yours today.

Noot is the secret sauce that keeps my plants alive and thriving

Noot is the secret sauce that keeps my plants alive and thriving.

This front garden bed of mine, ugh! It has been a chore getting it to be what I want. I am not the most plant knowledgable, but the way the builders left this hodgepodge of a bed when we bought the house was too unorganized. My front bed lacks color and I have tried to ‘guess’ my way into the right set up, but then I am left with a mess or just brown and dark green 3 of the 4 seasons. I am finally soliciting my sister to help me design the garden as she has come to love gardening so she can now help me.

Noot mix

She gave me some tasks to do before we shop. I am moving some plants around and even transplanting a boxwood we feel won’t work here in the end, but I love the health of it so I want to keep it. I am adding a few English Daisies for some spring color as I wait for summer plants to be available to buy and plant. To do this, I am using the trusty Noot, where every watering offers no-fuss organic fertilizing that fuels long lasting, natural growth. Noot keeps my plants alive and thriving.

Noot food

Whether planting or transplanting, the nutrients you give your plants to root and thrive in their new locations matters the most. I have old soil on top of clay/rocks, so I have had to add more layers of better soil and really make sure I am giving them the best feed.

plant food

Noot nourishes plants with 18 powerful organic ingredients combined with beneficial bacteria. Noot makes caring for plants easy with monthly delivery and comes in 3 varieties – Noot Mix (standard for all plants), Husky Mix (for root health) and Rescue Mix (for damaged/strained plants). To use, just pour it on the soil and Noot converts ordinary water into a complex nutritional and microbial solution that every plant craves.

feeding plants

With the Noot plan 7 gallons of feeding fits within 2 glass tubes for under $20. Choose how much you need delivered from 3.5 gallons to 300 gallons worth of plant food. Noot Works with most houseplants: tropicals, succulents, ferns, palms, cactus, bonsai, calathea, orchids, anthuriums, monsteras, aroids, and even kitchen herbs. Simply, mix 1 tsp of Noot every 1/2 gallon of water. No PH-ing needed. Learn more at Grow with Noot!

Arm & Hammer Essentials Disinfecting Wipes for a Cleaner Home

Thank you to Arm & Hammer for providing these wipes to me. I am proud to be an Ambassador to this brand.

Arm & Hammer Essentials Disinfecting Wipes for a Cleaner Home

I am cleaning and disinfecting more this year than in previous years and it is important that the cleaning products I use are safe for my pets and family. I do not like using harsh chemicals, it really is unnecessary when so many natural products are proven to clean as effectively, if not better! I quickly went from shopping any ‘ole cleaner that was on sale, to making sure I choose pure ingredients only so I don’t leave extra harm behind after I clean. Arm & Hammer Essentials Disinfecting Wipes are what I am using right now.

Arm & Hammer Essentials Disinfecting Wipes

Arm & Hammer Essentials Disinfecting Wipes do not contain harsh chemicals such as bleach, ammonia or Quats! This is because they use Citrus Based Disinfection – it is pure and simple and cleans effectively. These wipes are safe on any spaces near pets and kids such as food surfaces (although wiping down food surfaces with purified water to finish is always recommended no matter the cleaning products used).

I can even ring the excess moisture form a wipe and use it on electronics. Remotes, phones and screens get touched the most in my home and by the dirtiest of hands, so using a cleaning wipe that kills 99.9% of Viruses1 & Bacteria on these products is fantastic!

Arm & Hammer

I have used these wipes in my bathroom, kitchen, home gym equipment and electronics and I am never left with any residue. It dries quickly so you can just wipe and move on. They smell great and come in these tall, narrow containers for easy storage.

Look for these Arm & Hammer Essentials Disinfecting Wipes at most major retailers. Make sure that when you clean, you find pure and simple ingredients and no-mess options to save you time.
