Review: e-cloth Stainless Steel Pack + Giveaway

If you own ANYTHING that is stainless steel, you know how much of a pain in the ass it is to clean.  Seriously, I cannot tell you how many times I have tried different sprays, powders, lotions and potions to get my mom’s refrigerator and other kitchen appliances not only CLEAN, but streak-free.  That is the biggest issue.  The streaks. 

Although they are very sleek and modern looking, stainless steel appliances collect grime and fingerprints super easily.  My mom’s refrigerator always looked so grungy and I could never keep it looking nice until I got to try out the Stainless Steel Pack from e-cloth. 

BEFORE

The Stainless Steel Pack comes with two different cloths.  The Stainless Steel cloth has a scrubby texture that is perfect for getting your appliances clean and free of all of the grime.  The best part is that you don’t have to use any kind of chemicals or cleaners with the cloth.  WATER ONLY!!  The Finishing Cloth is used dry after cleaning off the appliance to remove fingerprints, water spots and other smudges.  I could not believe how easy it was to get these items clean and without the use of the pile of cleaners that I was convinced were necessary!

Why You Should Attend the GFAF Expo

(…aside from because it’s fun and exciting.)

The Gluten-Free and Allergen-Friendly Exposition (GFAF Expo for short) is like a fair for anyone and everyone—even those who are neither gluten-intolerant nor require allergy-friendly products—who wants to learn about gluten-free and/or allergen-friendly living. In other words, if you’re a teacher, have friends/family following or requiring the lifestyle, and/or interested in the lifestyle as a whole—just in case something happens in the future—you should attend.

Food Allergen Identity Crisis: Identifying Peanuts

One of the most unfortunate aspects of having food allergies is that allergens may not always be listed as clearly on the ingredients list.

I’m starting a series that lists the alternate identities of various allergens, starting with peanuts, to potentially aide in the identifying allergens for those with allergies, families of those with allergies, and people in general. […]

What does anaphylaxis feel like?

In 2011, I ate peanut butter sandwiches every day for about two weeks, simply because they were the easiest to make on a whim, and also because I was burnt out on Hot Pockets, pizza, and other frozen dinners. On the day of the third week, after eating a peanut butter sandwich, I experienced what I thought at the time was just an asthma attack. […]

Can You Handle An Emergency?

Last week, we had a very scary incident in our home.  I was making dinner and three of my boys were playing in the bathroom.  They often have to “help” each other wash hands or go down the dark hallway, so this is pretty typical.  I knew something was wrong when I heard a different kind of scream come from my youngest, Charlie.

Gluten & Allergen Free Expo Mini Reviews Part 1

I had a lot of people ask me what my allergens were at the expo.  The truth is, I don’t have any.  I recently discovered, via elimination diet, that I am lactose intolerant, but I have never been formally diagnosed with any food allergies.  So why in the world was I at this Expo, you wonder?! […]

Day two of the Gluten Free Allergen Free Expo was JUST as amazing as day one!!  I started off my day wearing my totally rad Omission Beer shirt.  We slept in a little since we were up SO late blogging and instagramming about the day and didn’t get to the Expo until about 11:00 am on Sunday. […]
