Do It Yourself Soap Scum Killer!! Only 3 Ingredients!

You are going to love this DIY home remedy.  I can’t tell you how many products I have tried that advertised they would “Kill” my soap scum on contact and for a couple seconds while they were still wet I believed they were going to work.  I’m going to show you how to make your own soap scum killer with three simple and natural ingredients and you may have them all in your home right now!

WARNING: You will be exposed to my disgusting bathroom tile, but really I did it for you.

IMG_8499_edited-1

Here’s what you’re going to need:

  • Baking Soda
  • Lemon
  • Vinegar
  • Microfiber Cloth

Step 1: Stare at your soap scum in disbelief.  Ponder who you can blame for letting it get this bad.

IMG_8500

Step 2: Cover the offending area in baking soda.

IMG_8503

Step 3: Use a lemon cut in half as a scrubber. Gently rub it over the baking soda to make a paste.

IMG_8507Once the entire area is covered, let it sit for at least 20 minutes.

IMG_8510

Step 4: Soak a microfiber cloth in vinegar and use it to remove the dried paste.

IMG_8511_edited-1

Step 5: Rinse the vinegar off and let dry.

If you still see spots, you will need to repeat the process. But hopefully, you’ll end up with tiles that look like this…

YAY!!!!!!!  Now I no longer need to live my life in shame.  I hope this little homemade soap scum killer works for you as well as it worked for me.  Thanks for reading! Please remember to like, share, tweet, and pin this post.

DIY Two Second Fix for Stinky Shoes!

It a new year, we are working out to get into shape So, it’s no surprise that our shoes are going to get stinky. It doesn’t matter how hard you try (you can use super absorbent socks, foot sprays, powders, and even slick deodorant on the bottom of your feet) your shoes are just going to get smelly! Of course you can toss your shoes in the washing machine for a quick fix but as you know, the clean smell doesn’t last long. To top it off, the washing machine used too often, can cause your shoes to start breaking down. So, that’s not an option for regular upkeep. Instead of dealing with stinky shoes all year, I’m going to show you a two second fix for keeping your shoes (and other things) fresh!

Two second fix

 

Did you catch the secret?

It’s already in the picture. Take another look. What do you see?

NEWSPAPER!!!

That’s right, all you need to help remove odors is a piece of crumpled up newspaper! Who would have thunk it?!

I started doing this a few days ago and its unbelievable how placing a few pieces of newspaper into your shoes overnight can completely remove any funky odors!

Newspapers can also be used as odor absorbers in your fridge. Did you buy fish for dinner? Wrap it in a piece of newspaper before you place it in the fridge and it won’t smell! If you already have some funky odors in there, just crumple up your left over newspaper and place it in an inconspicuous area to get some extra fridge freshness!!

You can also use newspaper in and around your home to get rid of any phantom odors! Stick some crumpled paper in your kitchen cabinets, stick it in a food container that smells like the food it held, or stick some in your bedroom drawers and let the newspaper work it’s odor removing magic!

Once the newspaper stops doing it’s job, simply remove it, toss it into your recycle bin, and start over with a new piece!!

Tell me this isn’t the EASIEST thing you’ve ever heard! Once you try it, tell me this isn’t the easiest thing you’ve ever done that WORKS!!

I know this DIY was short and sweet but hey, there’s nothing to it!

I hope this little tidbit helps you out the next time you’re looking for a way to get rid of a nasty smell!

Love With Food: Good for You, Good for Others Too!

If you’ve been following us here at Discount Queens, I’m sure you’ve discovered that we are having a love affair with those fantastic boxes full of goodies that come to your door every month. Why? Because it’s a great way to treat yourself to something fun without breaking the bank. This month, I was lucky enough to get my hands on a box from Love with Food.

Let me start by saying, OH-EM-GEE!! Ok, I’m a foodie at heart. I love to try new things but as life would have it, new things just don’t come easy for me. I live in the country with a bunch of cows so “new” just isn’t attainable…that is until Love with Food showed up at my door. I hate to admit this but the minute I opened the box, I let out a little squeal of excitement. Ok, it might not have been too little because my better half heard me and made his way over to see what I had. His eyes widened as he saw, and started rummaging through, everything the box contained. I put an end to it by removing his hand, closing the box, and telling him, “I’m reviewing it, you can’t touch it”. Shame on me, I know! But, you come first my friends! So, let’s dig in!lovefood

 

Can you believe all these yummies?! We have an organic candy bar, Lindt Chocolate, Allergen Free Peppermints, Marshmallow Toppers to add to drinks like the All Natural Powdered Drinking Chocolate that came in the box, we have Chocolate Dipped Madeline Cookies, Natural Crackers, Molasses Cookies, and a Spinach Dip that I cannot wait to make! Yup, it’s a party in a box!

Here’s a little something that’s going to make Love with Food a little bit more appealing too; not only are you treating yourself to something nice but a hungry child gets a meal for every box that gets sent out. How awesome is that? Something good for you and something good for someone else. That’s what I call, a win-win!

Discount Queens, Love with Food is a must-try! Really, for $10 a month you just can’t go wrong!

Now that I’ve shared my Love with Food Box with you, I’m going to call my hubby back in and let him taste everything too.

Nerium: The New Wrinkle Eraser!

Capture

I’m so glad Christmas is over! I love it at the moment but find myself needing a break when it’s over (sounds like any other vacation, right?). Now that I’ve had a day to relax, my mind has turned to resolutions for the New Year. Of course I have many of the same ones you do; eat healthier, loose a few pounds, get more sleep, spend more time with the family, and so on. But, I think there might be one thing on my list that is a bit different than the norm; look younger.

What I’m going to tell you about is going to sound like the stuff of fairy tales but you have my word, it’s true. Before I go on though, let me clarify a few things. I am NOT a seller and I was not paid for what you’re about to read. These are my real experiences and opinions on a product that was given to me by a new friend.

The amazing product I’m talking about is called Nerium. It’s this amazing little lotion that over time, erases fine lines, wrinkles (even deep ones), and tightens the skin. When I first learned about the product, I found myself in disbelief. I couldn’t believe that there was something other than plastic surgery that could give the results that I saw. I really thought the results pictures I was seeing were manipulated by some fancy software. To be honest, it wasn’t until I saw results of my own that I started to believe Nerium could do what it claimed. Here’s my proof:Nerium

Hard to believe, huh? Here’s the topper, my results happened in less than 30 days.

My pictures were taken with my iPhone and were not edited. As you can see, I still have lines, they’re just slowly disappearing. YAY!

Here’s the interesting part  about Nerium, it has a patented extract called NAE8. It is a super charged antioxidant that kills free radicals, saves cellular life, and saves collagen. So, not only are you “erasing” your lines, but you’re also slowing further signs of aging.

This product really is amazing and it’s totally worth checking out. After using it myself, I can say with all honesty, Nerium did what it said it would do. So, if you’ve been looking for something that works then you need to take a look at Nerium.

Here’s a little bonus for you too:

Santa Will Write Review and Discount Offer!

CaptureWe’ve all heard that a picture is worth a thousand words and that couldn’t be more true for this…

IMG_9649

Beautiful, isn’t it?

This is what happened after my sister-in-law read the letter Santa and Rudolph sent her son.

Let me fill you in a bit:

Last month one of Santa’s elves sent me an email and let me know that Santa is sending out letters to good boys and girls to let them know they’ve been put on the nice list. Lucky for me, my nephew made top honors and got his letter a little early!

My nephew’s letter showed up in a bright shiny red envelope addressed directly from Santa himself!

IMG_9622Of course, he’s a little too young to read the letter all by himself so his mom read the letter that Santa and Rudolph wrote. He couldn’t believe that Santa told him he was working on getting him exactly what he wanted (for him, it was an iPad, games, and money)! Just look at his face..

IMG_9633His “uninterested brother” in the background was sure excited to point out that Rudolph left his hoof print on the letter too!

After the letter was finished, Seth was given his official Nice List certificate.

IMG_9638I’m not sure I’ve ever seen him more proud.

Here’s where we come full circle. All this Christmas magic sent Seth right into his mother’s embrace. Somehow, Santa’s letter meant so much to Seth, that he crawled on his mother’s lap and stayed there for a while. I was just lucky enough to capture the moment in a picture.

As you can see, this little gift from Santa made the Christmas holiday a lot more magical for Seth and now you can do the same for your child!

Santa’s elves let me know that Santa Will Write letters for good boys and girls and they want to give you the same opportunity that they gave us; to share in a little extra Christmas magic. So, they’re giving us something special to share with you!

All of our Discount Queens family is getting a special 25% off discount on a Santa Will Write order. Santa will send the same shiny red envelope, a letter from his desk and maybe one from Rudolph too, as well as an official nice list certificate!

All you have to do to get your discount is enter the code dqueens25 at checkout!

You’ll have to hurry though. Christmas is on it’s way and this offer is only going to last through December 17th!

Parents, I can promise that your child will love their personalized letter from Santa and Rudolph. It’s definitely an experience they, and you, will never forget.

Pear Tree Greeting Review and Giveaway Too!

CaptureLast year, I got to review Pear Tree Greetings which was awesome! I ordered these super cute personalized stickers to place on all the baked goods I made for friends and family. This year, they gave me another opportunity to review them. So, I spent some time checking out Pear Tree’s holiday collection and created some fantastic holiday cards! Just look at how cute they came out…Card 1Of course, my picture doesn’t do these cards justice. Their cards are beautiful!

CaptureSee, I told you!

Anyway, if you have any fear of designing the cards on your own, don’t. You don’t have to be a computer whiz to personalize them.  I loved that I never felt pressured. I know that’s a weird word to use but you know what it’s like, sometimes certain sites are so complicated to use that you feel stressed out about screwing something up. This wasn’t the case with Pear Tree. Personalizing the card was a cinch!

Now, if you need a little extra motivation to use Pear Tree Greetings this year, then how about this; if you share Pear Tree with a friend, you’ll earn $20 and they’ll earn $20! Cool, huh? Here’s another bonus, you two won’t be the only ones benefiting from all this sharing. CaringBridge, the nonprofit communications hub used for families in crisis, will also get $20! Love this! You get something, your friend gets something, and a nonprofit gets a much needed something too!

Pear Tree is in the holiday spirit, Discount Queens! They are giving us something to give to one of you! How does a $40 Pear Tree Greeting credit sound?! It sounds good, doesn’t it?

If you want to win, you have to be our next fan of the week!  All you have to do is follow us on Facebook and like, share, and comments on our posts (especially this one)! Don’t forget to drop by Pear Tree Greeting’s Facebook page and give them a like too!

Good luck!

Boost Mobile: Save Money with Shrinking Payments!

This is a Sponsored post written by me on behalf of Boost Mobile’s Shrinking Payments for SocialSpark. All opinions are 100% mine.

Whether it’s on food, clothing, products, or services, those of us here at Discount Queens want to help you save. As you know, the more you save, the more money stays in your pocket; that’s couponing 101. Well, the same is true when it comes to your cell phone plan: When your cell phone plan gets smaller, your wallet gets bigger with Shrinking Payments.

You’re probably wondering how to make your phone plan get smaller without having to get rid of your favorite features, right? It’s actually pretty easy to do with Boost Mobile. For every six on-time payments you make on your Boost Mobile’s Monthly Unlimited plan, your payment will decrease by $5. If you keep at it long enough, you could shrink your payments to $40 a month for unlimited nationwide talk and text! You don’t have to get rid of anything! Crazy huh?!

Want to know a little more?

Check this out:

Here’s the cool part. Boost understands that life happens and sometimes a late payment is going to happen (this just happened to me thanks to following my better half to his guard duty assignment in another state). If it does, you don’t have to worry about starting over. Your on-time payments will still be credited towards your next savings milestone. YAY!

Head over to Boost Mobile and Get Shrinking Payments!! They have several different plans to choose from too! Who knows, they may just help you save a little extra dough. I don’t know about you but I wouldn’t mind an extra white chocolate mocha coffee every month with the money I’d save! Leave a comment and let us know what you would do with your extra savings!

Everbuying: The New Place for Hot Products at Discount Prices!

EverbuyingBargain lovers rejoice! We have discovered a sight worth its weight in gold; Everbuying.com.

It’s this wonderful place where you can find almost anything your heart desires (phones, phone accessories, tablets, toys, and even clothes) for the lowest prices possible! With the holidays around the corner, I couldn’t be more excited about finding Everbuying. Now I don’t have to worry about dropping tons of cash for a nice gift!

Everbuying was nice enough to let me review this awesome Multi-purpose Land/Air Amphibious Missile Launching RC Helicopter Car and it was a HIT with my nephews! We spent hours outside playing with this toy. The only problem we had was that we only had one toy and three boys!  So, of course we had to play the “who’s turn is it, Aunt Tina?” game but we (yes, me included) couldn’t get enough of this thing!

The quality of the toy was great. It wasn’t one of those cheap plastic RC cars that have to stay connected to a cord that you’d expect to get for the price listed. The RC Helicopter Car had a nice weight, flew and moved seamlessly (even in the damp cold weather),  and had really fun flashing lights that the boys loved. Watching it fire missiles just put the toy (and the boys) over the top! See for yourself…

IMG_9591  1We had too much fun with this thing.

I was thoroughly impressed with Everbuying. The site is easy to navigate, the product list is huge, the prices are small, and the quality is great. Even the shipping was fast!

Everbuying.com is one of those sites you will be thankful for finding this holiday season. Thanks to them, you will be able to find an amazing gift for someone you care about without having to give up your entire month’s pay. I can tell you first hand, you will love Everbuying from the first click.

Here’s a fun little reason to head over to Everbuying.com right now too….we’re giving away a $30 store credit! They want you to have the same opportunity they gave me; to experience what they have to offer first hand!

If you want to win, you have to be our next Fan of the week! All you have to do is like and share our posts (especially this one) on Facebook! Be sure to drop by the Everbuying Facebook page and give them a like too!

This giveaway will start on Monday, November 11 and end on Sunday, November 17th!
