The Ultimate Cloth Review + Free Offer Available

I've mentioned before that I care deeply about the environment.  I probably have also mentioned that I'm a terrible housewife.  I hate cleaning, cooking, etc ~ all the typical things you associate with a stay at home mom.  With that said, I'm always on the look out for a product that will make my life easier + doesn't harm the environment or my kids {of course!}. 

Thanks to Mama Buzz, I have found a new product to add to my cleaning arsenal ~ The Ultimate Cloth.

The Ultimate Cloth is eco-friendly solution for homes as well as a money and time saver. The Ultimate Cloth is a brand new technology – in fact, it is the only cloth to receive a new patent in the last 25 years.  The Ultimate Cloth is a simple, green and effective one-step cleaning process.  The Ultimate Cloth cleans any hard surface – glass, wood, granite, stainless steel and many more – with just water!  No longer do you have to use harsh chemicals in your home, nor do you need spend hundreds of dollars per year buying them.  The Ultimate Cloth has been lab tested to remove 96% of bacteria, without the use of chemicals.  And, can cut 50% off your cleaning time.  The Ultimate Cloth is truly the ultimate in green cleaning.  

When I received my ultimate cloth, I couldn't wait to try it out.  It is pretty thin, but a nice size.  I love the idea that you can clean with no cleaners.  Makes my life so much easier, plus no yucky smells.  The first thing I cleaned was my bathroom mirrors. I don't know  what my girls do, but they get so dirty.  I just used a bit of water & rubbed them clean.  It was pretty cool how easy it was.  Then I tried the windows with the same results.  I'm impressed.  I haven't tried anything yet, so we will see how it holds up.  If you fold it into quarters and use flat, you actually get 8 sides to use.  This will clean a lot of stuff in your house!

  • Clean and Polish windows, mirrors, windshields, glass - all hard surfaces - & many soft surfaces such as leather and vinyl.
  • Leaves a streak free, spot free, lint & dust free finish using NO chemicals or paper towels.
  • One step process cuts cleaning time in half - verified by professionals!!
  • Household - Besides your windows, glass &'s great for shower doors, bathroom tile, countertops, appliances - including stainless steel, corian, granite, marble, glass-topped appliances. Computer screens, TV screens, framed artwork, glass Patio Tables, Sporting Equipment and much much more.
  • Autos - bumper to bumper - inside & out - it will sparkle!!.
  • , Boats and RV's - Safe for Lexan, pain, chrome...Convenient as it travels with you - just dampen & clean wherever you are.
The Ultimate Cloth comes in 2 sizes ~ The standard (13.5 x 15.5) that I reviewed and the Bad Boy (45% bigger)

You can purchase them here.   Pricing starts at just $6 for the standard.

Something for my readers ~
All of you can receive a FREE Ultimate Cloth! 

All they need to do is follow Ultimate Cloth America on Twitter or become a fan on facebook:

They will reveal how to get the free Ultimate Cloths via Twitter and facebook. 

P.S. On twitter, I had a link to purchase the Ultimate Cloth for $2.99 shipping.  I loved my original cloth so much I took advantage of this!  I plan on using it on my swiffer :)

Pillsbury Ready to Bake Thanksgiving Shape sugar cookies

Can you believe Thanksgiving is only 1 week away?  I have to be honest, Thanksgiving is not one of my favorite holidays.  My kids seem to enjoy it though, so I try really hard to do fun things around this time.  Plus sneak in some being thankful lessons :)

One thing I do enjoy about Thanksgiving though is that we are one step closer to Christmas.  Before the stores got all crazy and started putting out Christmas stuff months and months early, Thanksgiving seemed to mark the official Christmas season.

In keeping with that feeling, why not start you cookie baking early with Pillsbury?  They have the cutest cookies out right now that are shaped like Turkeys.  How adorable is that?  Just place the sugar cookies on your baking sheet, pop them into the oven, and within minutes you´ll have delicious home-baked treats to share with your kids. 

These fun Thanksgiving themed cookies are only available a short time, so pick them up while you can!  MyBlogSpark and Pillsbury sent me a cute little Thanksgiving Fun Pack.  Great news though, they have the same gift pack for one my readers! 

Since Thanksgiving is rapidly approaching, this will be a quick contest.  Entering is super easy ~ 

Just leave a comment sharing with me how you make Thanksgiving fun.  If you take Thanksgiving more seriously, then tell me what Thanksgiving means to you or what you enjoy about the holiday.  I'm looking for ideas though, so please share.  I'm actually working the Lions game, so I need to leave some stuff for the kids to do while I'm gone.  Don't want them driving hubby and grandparents too crazy, lol.

Bed Bouquet Review & Giveaway

 There is nothing better then getting into bed with fresh washed sheets.  That freshness sadly only lasts a few days.  What to do in the mean time?  Bed Bouquet to the rescue! 

From the website ~

The general concept surrounding the creation of Bed Bouquet was to develop an apparatus that would be physically unnoticeable to the sleeper, yet, emit a soft fragrance throughout the bed sheets for weeks in order to eliminate the need for daily application.

It was also important to ensure that the unit be designed to avoid all chemical-to-skin contact that could lead to irritation. The results, a specially designed fragrance pad with a pliable housing and adhesive backing that when placed on the mattress contours with the sleeper’s body position, thus, going undetected.
The top openings of the apparatus allow a mild and tantalizing scent to permeate throughout the sheets giving consumers daily enjoyment of their selected fragrance. Bed Bouquet uses only the finest oils to capture the essence of the fragrance and all oils are certified by the International Fragrance Association.
My thoughts ~ I think it is a great product.  It is very small and easily slips under your bed.  I do suffer from bad headaches, so the scent was a bit strong when it was near my head.  I love the scent, unfortunately my head did not.   I ended up moving the packet near my feet and it was a perfect solution for me. 

The scent is gentle and refreshing, yet not overpowering.  If you like a lot of scent just place it near the top of your bed, under your pillow area. If you want a little less you can [lace about midway in the bed or even near the feet like I did.   The Bed Bouquet lasts about 30 days.  Plus it really does stick and stay in place.  That was one doubt I had, and the Bed Bouquet came through!

Plus with every online order of Bed Bouquet product purchased they provide a free Bed Care eBook.  This book is jam packed with information including bed bugs, how to get a good nice sleep and how to wash your sheets and pillows, etc. 

Giveaway Alert ~ Bed Bouquet is offering two of my readers a 2 pack of Bed Bouquets!

To enter ~ Visit Bed Bouquet and check out all of their great products. Then, come back here and tell me which is your favorite scent.

Curse of the Spider King by Wayne Thomas Batson and Christopher Hopper

The Curse of the Spider King: Book 1 in the Berinfell Prophecies

By: Wayne Thomas Batson and Christopher Hopper

Ages: 12 - 17

Curse of the Spider King is the first in a fantasy trilogy for middle grade readers.  It's co-written by Wayne Thomas Batson and Christopher Hopper, both individual writers as well.  This brand new series is about seven 13-year olds from various parts of Earth who find each other in a mysterious way. They are gathered together to grasp their destiny. They're really elves who were brought here as infants to protect them from the Spider King when he ransacked the elven kingdom, Allyra. Now that they're teens their powers are revealed and the Spider King has rediscovered their whereabouts. To quash them will eliminate the hope of the elf remnant in Allyra, but those who've been watching over the growing children are determined to see their charges safely home.

I enjoyed this book quite a bit.  One thing I like about reading teen fantasy is they are usually clean.  When you start getting into adult fantasy novels, they usually end up being geared around certain activities vs the story.  This story can get to be a bit much since there are 7 main characters.  I think if you have an on level reader or above reader, they will enjoy this story.   My 12 year still has a few years I  believe.  She doesn't like reading, so I haven't set this book out for her yet.  I think she might get into it more when she hits 13.

Description: Fantasy. Mystery. Action. Humor. Parents, teachers, and librarians will no longer have to push kids to read-The Berinfell Prophesies will engage intermediate readers and leave them clamoring for more.
The Seven succeeding Elven Lords of Allyra were dead, lost in the Siege of Berinfell as babes.  At least that's what everyone thought until tremors from a distant world known as Earth, revealed strange signs that Elven blood lived among its peoples. With a glimmer of hope in their hearts, sentinels are sent to see if the signs are true. But theirs is not a lone errand. The ruling warlord of Allyra, the Spider King, has sent his own scouts to hunt down the Seven and finish the job they failed to complete many ages ago.

Now 13-year-olds on the brink of the Age of Reckoning when their Elven gifts will be manifest, discover the unthinkable truth that their adoptive families are not their only kin. With mysterious Sentinels revealing breathtaking secrets of the past, and dark strangers haunting their every move, will the young Elf Lords find the way back to the home of their birth? Worlds and races collide as the forces of good and evil battle.  Will anyone escape the Curse of the Spider King?

Put out by: Thomas Nelson

Price: $14.99

You can purchase at Amazon as well ~ Curse of the Spider King: The Berinfell Prophecies Series - Book One

Disclosure: Thomas Nelson provided complimentary copies to Mama Buzz reviewers for the purposes of this blog tour.
