Being the mommy to an active four month old, working full-time, and blogging make keeping a clean home very challenging but just because I am busy does not mean I do not want a clean and beautiful home! However, it will come as no surprise when I tell you that busy living means we have less time to clean. Upon recently coming to this conclusion my husband and I agreed to hire a house cleaner. We are thrilled and extremely thankful to have her but unfortunately she only comes once a month. That means that I have to do “touch-up” cleaning throughout the month to get me by to her month to month visits. Thankfully, Pledge® and Windex® products help me clean my house more efficiently with less effort. Thanks to these products I can touch up my home in as little as 10 minutes for an InstaClean look!
Windex® and Pledge® help me feel more in charge of my home. I make sure to use both of these products in my weekly 10 minute cleaning spree by using the Pledge® on my hardwood surfaces such as my kitchen table, hardwood floors, and buffet. I use Pledge® Multi Surface cleaner on my shelves and household surfaces to remove smudges from wood, laminate, stainless steel, marble, granite, and plastic. This cleaner also removes dust and up to 90% of allergens found in dust! Finally, I use Windex® on my glass tables and mirrors. These simple tasks although quick and easy are important because they help me maintain a sense of order in my home and keep my home looking tidy for guests and my family. A clean home equals a happy wife and a happy wife equals a happy life!
It truly is amazing how a simple spray of Pledge® on your wood removes any spills and adds that extra layer of shine to keep surfaces clean!
All three of these products (Windex® Original Glass Cleaner, Pledge® Multi Surface and Pledge® Lemon Clean) can be purchased at Kroger. I purchased all three for under $15! Make sure to check out the Buy 4 Save 4 Mega Event going on at Kroger and Kroger Affiliate stores!
**Mega Event for Windex® is 11/3-11/15 and the event for Pledge® is 11/10-12/27)

Marie Cavanaugh spent hours in her South Dakota farmhouse each Christmas season making pecan rolls and homemade chocolates for holiday gifting.
"It started when my aunt sent her pecan-rolls recipe," Mrs. Cavanaugh recalled. "I gave the recipe my own touch and started making the yummy specialties. Then I began dipping chocolates. Our friends and neighbors loved these treats, encouraging me to start a candy business. Finally, I decided it might be a good idea.'"
Her husband George and children Carla, Lorraine, Calvin, Colene and Genise rallied, helping Mrs. Cavanaugh fill demands for her homemade sweets.
...In 1972, the family moved to Utah, leaving good friends and their beloved cattle ranch.
"It was a difficult decision, especially for George," Mrs. Cavanaugh said. "He was excited about making our new venture, which we chose to call Mrs. Cavanaugh's Candies, a great success. We felt Utah was blessed with good chocolates and that we would enjoy - and could compete with - those who pride themselves on making excellent chocolates."
Millions of pounds of chocolates later, Mrs. Cavanaugh's candies have earned a reputation for unquestionable excellence....
