Downy Wrinkle Releaser- Home and On the Go

Disclosure- we received the below in order to facilitate this review.  All opinions are our own and honest.  For more, see “I Disclose”.
downyDuring the summer (or any season really) life seems to speed up.  I often think it should be otherwise, it rarely works out that way. As such, your activities had to have priorities- whats more important? Catching on on some summer reading or ironing?  Personally I would say reading but ironing still needs to be done.  To the rescue Downy!

Downy have recently released a new spray called Downy Wrinkle Releaser.  This simple to use fabric fresher makes your day move a lot quicker as well as a day saver.  The way this works is, first hang up your garment, then spray it with the Release then tug to pull out the wrinkles.  That is all there is to it.  Simple and quick so not only would this be a time saver with ironing but also a savior when you find out that blouse that you planned on wearing to work today fell off the hanger and has been wrinkled.  The Wrinkle Releaser saves the day here too.  The odd thing about the releaser is the once you have it, around you definitely start using it more and more often.

Gain Laundromat Takeover

I participated in a campaign on behalf of Mom Central Consulting for Gain. I received a promotional item as a thank-you for participating.

Gain laundry detergent can do a wonderful job of cleaning your clothes and linens.  Personally we recently gave the new Gain Flings Moonlight Breeze a try.  With Oxi Boost and Febreze, this detergent is a winner.  We of course had high expectations and Gain exceeded those expectations with a wonderful scent and an even more powerful detergent which scrubbed all the clothes to sparkling clean.

Gain is also bringing a bit of culture and entertainment to some local laundromats.  They are doing this by bringing community created art displays to laundromats around the Bronx, Spanish Harlem, and Washington Heights.

The locations of these beautified laundromats are:

House Cleaning


Spring is upon us- or rather, should be upon us soon if these darn snow storms would stop already and mother nature would get the hint and take a break.  Anyway Spring is around the corner, and also around that corner is the first day you can crack open those windows and air out the house finally.  Get out the dust and the funk that has been building for months now.

As Spring comes, so does Spring cleaning and as such there are a 3 places people generally clean

1) The carpet – By either hiring a carpet cleaner or doing it yourself either way going green is in.  So if possible use Earth friendly carpet shampoo or hire a Green Choice Carpet Cleaning company.

2) The windows – inside and out all those wonderful windows used to let in a lot more light so be sure to hit both inside and out.  Inside is easy as long as you can reach them with your cleaner of choice and paper towels or fabric remnants.  Outside is a bit tricky, we tend to go with the garden hose attachment made specifically for outdoor window cleaning.  Just be sure all windows are closed tightly, trust me on this one.
