reader question…


“…I did have a couple of questions for you. I noticed that you like great smelling things. I am in search for a great laundry detergent that has a great smell. Do you have any suggestions? Also, in search for a great body wash/soap.

I also would be interested in your cost for your blog designs. I am starting a business shortly with headbands, accessories, and little childrens clothing. I think that would be a great marketing technique.

Thanks for your help. Have a great day!

Kristin, i do love good scents around me constantly!

i loooove my clothes, sheets, towels, EVERYTHING to smell delicious…

my current {and long-time} laundry recipe is as follows:

tide He, powder* form only. {here}

*I DO NOT RECOMMEND LIQUID SOAP, IF YOU ARE HAVING ANY CHALLENGES WITH A WEIRD/NASTY ODOR IN YOUR WASHING MACHINE…GOOD CHANCE IT’S BECA– USE OF THE LIQUID SOAP SITTING-ROTTING IN THE PLUMBING PIPES/TUBES!!! AND, IF YOU HAVE A FRONT LOADING WASHING MACHINE, FRONT LOADERS ARE GOING TO WORSEN THE ODOR!!!

suavitel fabric softener {here} this is a latin product i discovered in Mexico about six years ago! i purchase it at wal*mart. if you want your entire house to smell fresh like this, pour some in a water bottle, mixed half & half with water, and spritz it around your home or in your closets! be careful with allergies.

and, bounce dryer sheets {here}

the combination of these three is heaven!

also, i never put bedding & towels in the dryer. i always hang dry them over my stairway banisters…yes, it’s a temporary eyesore. but, it makes my house smell good to have them drying, it saves energy, and it retains the good smell from washing them. at times, the dryer sucks the yummy scents out of the fabric.

after the bedding & towels air dry, i fluff them in the dryer on a wrinkle-free setting for about five minutes. it’s long enough to soften them, but the scent is still fresh.

i, of course, have other laundry-stain removing sprays/products but none of those affect the good smells of our laundry.

and…

my favorite body wash in the whole world, is this.
{and, it’s on sale right now!!! buy 2, get 2 free, that is an awesome deal!}

if you can splurge, have a little spa in your shower at home by purchasing this. your body will love you forever. i recommend using the body scrub, then shaving…your legs will be the most moisturized, silkiest they have ever been! and, your shower/bathroom will smell good alllllll day after using it!

lastly, if you are interested in any graphic design work, check out my etsy shop here, send me a convo. via my etsy shop… tell me what you are looking for,
and i will send you a price quote!!!

{thanks kristin for the email, i hope some these answers help!!!}
