TriNova - Natural Pet Stain & Odor Remover Eliminator – With Advanced Enzyme Cleaner Formula – Remove Old & New Pet Stains from Both Dogs & Cats – All-Surface Safe – 32 OZ

Amazon link: https://www.amazon.com/Natural-Stain-Odor-Remover-Eliminator/dp/B018R5F6BM/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1484431083&sr=8-1&keywords=trinova+pet+stain+and+odor+remover

You can't live with three standard poodles who sleep on your bed and a white couch without a stain or an accident happening at some point. It's inevitable. Like kids they track in dirt, get sick (sometimes from both ends) and we have one with spay incontinence that still leaks a bit even with medication. Since I take enormous pride in the look and smell of my home, I need a pet stain and odor remover that really works. Recently I tried TriNova's formulated spray and I could not have been happier with the end result.

First of all, these standard poodles ARE my kids. I shop for items that are safe for both them and us.The fact that this product is all natural and safe to use around them was a big factor in my decision to try it. It has exactly 5 ingredients - all of which I can pronounce and know exactly what they are and do.

Enzymatic cleaners are pretty much the best you can buy for pet messes. In another lifetime I was a biochemistry major in college. One simple lesson you learn early on is that an enzyme is a catalyst which generally speeds up a specific chemical reaction without itself being changed by the chemical reaction. Enzymatic cleaners, therefore, initiate the work to destroy organic stains and odor immediately upon contact. The longer you allow it to sit, the longer it works. So for a small stain it may only need to sit for a short time before it's job is complete, for a more intense stain it may need longer, but because the enzyme itself is not changed during the chemical reaction as the cleaner eliminates the stain and odor, it just keeps on working until the job is done. Science lesson over. What you really want to know is how it worked for me.

When you receive your cleaner it will come sealed in a bag with the sprayer attachment inside. The bottle itself is also sealed under the top. Once you screw on the sprayer, you are ready to go. Test a small area before spraying your stain to make sure it is color safe. Once you determine it is, just spray and allow to sit for a moment. For a light stain, like the one in the photos below, I let the cleaner sit for 30 seconds then blotted up with a clean dry cloth. The dirt was gone completely and the only thing left behind was a pleasant minty odor. It was quick, easy and the results were exactly what I wanted without any damage to my fabric.

Onlyyou Blackout Curtain Drape Panel Window Grommet Thermal for Bedroom, 1 Panel , 52 x 63 Inch, Blue

Amazon link:https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B01GHCWA4I/ref=oh_aui_detailpage_o06_s00?ie=UTF8&psc=1

My husband and I just moved into our new (to us) home in Florida and we’ve had to start from scratch on window treatments. Florida is known for it’s hot and sunny days and we wanted window treatments that not only looked pretty and complimented our decor, but that would do a good job at helping us keep our home cool and comfortable when the morning and afternoon sun shines in. Blackout curtains were an absolute must for us to help minimize heating and cooling costs, as well as to help protect our new furniture from color fading/changes caused by the sun. These curtains do an exceptional job at keeping our room dark and cool when we want it, and without the old-fashioned white thermal lining you still see on the back of less modern blackout curtains.

The curtains themselves are soft to the touch, which I like. It is also a nice weight so the curtains hang nicely. When they came out of the package, I simply threw them for a few minutes in the dryer with a wet washcloth to steam out and wrinkles and hung them up. The hanging process was very easy as the grommets are a good size for just about any rod to slide through easily. I chose to use a double rod so that I could also hang a white sheer with them and together I think they look great. Two 52"x63"panels were enough cover our 4’x4’ spare bedroom windows. The sewing is exceptionally well done on these curtains as well. All in all - they were a great find for the money and I will be ordering more of them for other rooms in my home.

Left this comment on the blog, but thought it was worth repeating here on the You Tube video. I was so happy to find and subscribe to your You Tube Channel since I love the healthy combination of ingredients you put together. I am a huge fan of VeeV Vodka based cocktails and I am always experimenting with new and different recipes! I just received a cocktail muddler for a gift and I was looking for the perfect first recipe to try it out and I think this is it. As a massage therapist I believe in a balance for the body and I am excited to learn about Suja juice, since I also like low sugar ingredients when and where possible. I’d never heard of it before reading about it here, so I am officially on the hunt to find and try it now. Fingers crossed I can win some of this to share with friends and family soon. Thanks for the great drink recipe!

It's hard to find good fashions when you are over 40. Most things are pretty, but look better on someone younger. I like this company.

I've been seeing more and more from Little Cesar's lately as far as advertising. I think it's good since I love their food! Hadn't seen your favorite video before now, though.
I've been a big fan of Little Caesars pizza for as long as I can remember. I honestly don't know which I am more addicted to their pizza or breadsticks. I like to pair up their $5 Lunch Combo along with an order of breadsticks and it's a perfect meal for my lunch for two days!

New York Biology - Cellulite Cream & Deep Muscle Relaxation Cream – Huge 8.8 oz - 100% Natural Ingredients – Anti Cellulite Treatment Skin Toning & Firming Cream – Muscle Cream, Muscle Relaxer, Hot Cream

Amazon Link: https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B01MA62V42/ref=oh_aui_detailpage_o04_s00?ie=UTF8&psc=1

I was intrigued by this thermogenic hot gel since it claimed to help fight unwanted fat cells in the thighs, hips, buttocks, & abdomen areas, while also acting as an effective joint and muscle pain relief cream. The ingredients certainly caught me eye, since the gel is composed of naturals oils such as peppermint, eucalyptus and chamomile as well as other ingredients that are 100% natural & 87% organic. As a 15 year veteran massage therapist and former massage school owner/director, I have been AR State approved to teach continuing education to massage therapists since 2003. A big part of what I taught was the healing and therapeutic properties of essential oils for the body, so this product seemed to be right up my alley.

Organic aloe leaf juice is the number 1 base ingredient for this gel, allowing it to be quickly absorbed into the skin. However, for me, when rubbed into the skin, I only experienced a cooling effect, rather than a thermal effect. The scent is quite a powerful peppermint, so those around you will know that you are using the gel. It's not unpleasant, but it is strong. Because of this, I have chosen to use this product a bit differently than advertised.

I spend a great deal of time at the beach in the Florida sun. Both the sun and the ocean can be very drying and damaging to the skin. Aloe is a natural ingredient used to soothe and heal burned skin, while peppermint actually cools the skin, helping to alleviate the heat emanating from over exposed skin. In my opinion, this cream actually works better for me as a nightly re hydration and healing product for my skin after a day in the sun. It has no greasy feel once rubbed in.

New York Biology - 100% Natural Arabica Coffee Body Scrub 12 oz with Organic Ingredients – Best for Stretch Marks , Acne , Anti Cellulite & Spider Vein Therapy for Varicose Veins

Amazon link: https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B01LZDS706/ref=oh_aui_detailpage_o08_s00?ie=UTF8&psc=1

As a retired massage therapist and massage school owner/director, I've probably given and taught other therapists to give thousands of body scrubs over the years. I've used many different salt, sugar and nut/seed scrubs, but I've never until now used a coffee scrub. I must say, that I really liked the scent, texture and performance of this particular scrub by New York Biology.

When you get the scrub, you will find it is well sealed so that it arrives in optimal shape. The entire jar will be sealed with a clear plastic, which is fairly rugged but easy to remove. I just snipped an edge with a scissors and then peeled the rest of the plastic off of the jar. There is also another safety seal under the lid you will need to peel off before using the product.

Once you get into the jar the sweet smell of coffee fills your nostrils. This is due to the first ingredients of this organic scrub being Kona coffee, which is blended with Dead Sea Salts, arabica seed oil and Cacao extract. All of this goodness is mixed with a base of organic olive, sweet almond and grape seed oils, all very skin loving ingredients.

The main benefit of any body scrub is to give the skin a deep exfoliation and hydrated glow. To use this product, you simply scoop a marble sized ball out of the jar and apply to the body with your fingers in circular motions. A little bit of scrub will exfoliate a large area, so you won't need a lot of this product to get the job done. I've always taught my students to work from the feet up, making sure to cover the entire body in small circular motions taking your time, with special attention at the knees and elbows.

I found this scrub very easy to work with while in the shower. The medium fine granules were exfoliating but did not tear up my skin. The oils helped rejuvenate my dry skin from exposure to the Florida sun and ocean. You will want to make sure to wipe the excess oil off the bottom of your feet before stepping out of the shower and you may need to wash down your shower floor after using to make sure there are no left over slippery spots. The scent is truly delightful and worth the extra time and effort to make your skin look and feel wonderful.

Hi Jordan, I've been popping in every few days to see if you've chosen  your three winners to win a case of Suja Juice + VEEV Vodka, mason jars & bracelets. I've also been reading the blog and watching your other You Tube Videos while I wait (the suspense is killing me!) Any updates on this? Inquiring minds want to know! :-)

I've had these straight and they taste very good. Either that or I'd mix mine in pomegranate juice.
My husband has used 5-hour ENERGY® for as long as I can remember when he's had long shifts at work several days of the week to help give him a little boost to get through the day. I've personally never had them before now. I figured if I was going to be writing about them it was about time I ...
