About Me

My photo
I am a 29-ish yr old married mother of 8. My family is my life and I wouldn't have it any other way. My darling husband is my very best friend and together we are raising 8 of the best kids in the world! They are Rose(12) Sarah(12) Ammon(10) Malachi(8) Gabriel(7) Hannah(5) Maggie(4) and Abbie(3) We currently own 2 dogs, 1 bird, 5 chinchillas, 1,000,000 rabbits, 1 cat, 4.5 horses, and one ferret. We just purchased a home that is definately a "fixer-upper", with land and room for the kids to roam. Our goal is to run a mostly self sustaining farm and live in peace as we grow as a strong family unit. We have seen our fair share of hardships, but we are thankful for the many blessings the Lord gives us on a regular basis!

Okay ladies....
shhh! Don't tell any one... but I have a NASTY shower! I'd show pics but I'm too embarrassed! (and I don't want to give any one nightmares!) I've tried every thing! Strait bleach, Lime away, Magic Erasers, Mr Clean (two kinds), just plain Clorox Clean Up, CLR... My cleaning closet is full of cleaners that aren't working!
Do any of you have some secret cleaner that I don't know about?

What exactly is the problem? Hard water, mildew, soap scum? When we moved into our house we had a nasty shower and I just couldn't get the hard water stains off the door. I think it's etched and not possible to get off.

That said, my favorite cleaning product for the bathroom is just Comet or Ajax (the kind with bleach). You need to use tons of it, with not too much water, to make a paste, and then scrub, scrub, scrub!

Hey it's lexi from buckeye. Try a bounce dryer sheet. Get it wet and scrub away. Sometimes if the bottom is really bad I will put about an inch of water on the bottom and add the dryer sheet and let it sit for about 15 minutes then scrub away. HTH!

The problem is the non-slip part of my shower is almost black. I've tried commet. But the truth is that I think I've just let it go too long! With my busy schedule I'm constantly doing a lick and a promise. I always think I'll do it when I have more time (ha ha ha)

Lexi- Hi, how are you? I will try that today!

Thanks girls!

Hey, It's Sommer. I recently found Scrubbing bubbles pads that come with a green foam handle with velcro on the bottom(to hold the pad in place). They work like magic! I don't know if I will ever use anything else ever again. How ya doin?

I have used the OXY Clean prespot spray on my shower to get the grossness out and it works AWESOME!!! So... I'm guessing that Kaboom stuff will do the same since it's the same company???
