Natural House Review and Giveaway‏



"For those parents whose kids have ever dunked their toys or pacifier in the toilet or licked food off of the floors…For those who have had to roto-root your pipes or have a septic build up and waste invade your home…For those of us who cringe when we have to open the trash can indoors and out…And for all of us out there that want something powerful that works AND want the piece of mind that what you are buying is non-toxic and safe, Natural House is for you".


Any of that sounds familiar?  I can relate to pretty much all of it. 
Natural House probiotic cleaning products are a new revolutionary way of cleaning the most dirty areas of your home. They use non-toxic, probiotic cleaning agents, which makes them safe and gentle for all of the members of your home.  I have 4 little ones walking and crawling around, and I always worry that they might get in contact with products that are not safe for them.  Cleaning House solves that problem.


They use an odor eating ecosystem to naturally drive out and digest odors at their source.  With six people in our home, you know I like this aspect of Natural House products!


For all of us trying the live a "greener" life, Natural House cleaning products use plant-based ingredients, they are eco-friendly, non-toxic and biodegradable.  They are really natural household cleaning products.

One last amazing thing about their cleaners, they contain good probiotics which continue to scour, clean, consume odors, grime, grease, and germs, and they continue to do so until your next weekly treatment! How many products can you think of that do that?

I was lucky enough to get to try their three products, Trashy, Sinky and Flushy.  I love the names!  And I am very excited to review them, as I really enjoyed using them in our home.

Here's a picture to explain the way their products work:



The first one I tried was Sinky.
It breaks down grease and food scraps to help prevent clogs and slow drains. It's very easy to use, and actually kind of fun to watch. You just put in your drain, run hot water for a few seconds, turn on your disposal for a few seconds, and watch it work. It will start to foam on its own!
I love being able to see the product work, and it really seemed to help with odors too.






 
 
 
 
Next, I tried Trashy.  Can you guess what this one is used for.  You got it, that dreaded trash can.  You can use it in your indoor or outdoor trash cans to dissolve odors, grease and food scraps.  Again, very easy to use, just spray it in your trash can, or if you have one of those "stinky" diaper pails, spray it in that, and let air dry.  You can also wipe it down if you want.
For some reason, I feel so much better looking at my trash can now.  It definitely helped with smell, and the inside seems cleaner too!
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
Last, I tried Flushy.  Any idea what this one is for?  You guys are too smart!
Flushy is a toilet bowl cleaner and drain and septic treatment. It cuts through stains, hard water and calcium deposits in the bowl. If you have a septic tank, it continues to consume toilet paper and waste build up in the p-trap, drain and pipes, and maintains the health of your septic system.
The kids had fun watching this one work!  Just tosh the bag in your toilet bowl, and watch it foam. 


 
Overall, I really enjoyed using their products.  This is actually very strange for me to say, because I wouldn't imagine myself saying I enjoyed cleaning, but I did.  All the Natural House products, were really easy to use, they work great, and they shorten cleaning time.  I liked being able to see the produtcs work.
 
Buy Them:  Their products are very affordable, $4.99 each.  You can buy them Here. Or on Amazon Here.


Win Them: One Lucky Kids and Deals Reader will win a 30 day supply of all the products I reviewed!

Halloween Already....

Yes, some may think it's a little early, but I like having plenty of time to look for the perfect costume at the perfect price.

I have four costumes to buy this year, and everyone has a specific request, well, except for my little 5 months old, but I'm the picky one for her. 

Have you checked out JustKidsCostumes.com?  They have over 3,000 costumes and accessories to choose from including superheroes and Disney Princesses.

They have a fun feature on their site.  If you can't decide what would look cute on your little one, try the Dress-Up Room app. Just upload your child's photo to the app and see what they would look like dressed up in their favorite costume. You can even easily share their photos with your friends on Facebook!

Rock 'N Learn Sight Words Review & Giveaway

Rock N Learn Logo


Rock 'N Learn is at it again, and the kids love it! 
This time we got to try their latest release Sight Words.  I was excited to try another DVD from them, as the kids enjoy their phonics DVDs so much. 

Here is a little bit from Rock 'N Learn about Sight Words:

"Sight Words, a new DVD program from Rock ‘N Learn, helps kids learn to read. Using fun music and exciting characters, kids learn to read over 60 words. These are the most common words used in the English language and are words kids need to know automatically. This program is perfect for parents with very young kids who appear advanced and eager to learn, as well as older students with remedial needs. It’s effective at helping kids learn to read at all ages. A bonus section helps kids practice their spelling skills and focus on the shapes of words. The program engages kids to participate along with the fun characters. Approximately 50 minutes in length, it’s most effective when kids watch again and again. Before too long, they are reading the sight words with ease."

I love seeing the kids get so excited watching this DVD.  They love the music and characters, and sing along with them.  I have a 5 years old, a 4 years old, and a 2 years old, and they equally enjoy Sight Words.  I hear them repeat words, and sounds.  I like that the DVD has illustrations, and images that make the kids want to keep watching.  It seems to really help my oldest son who is learning to read right now.

The picture shows the kids sitting nicely to watch it, but most of the time they dance along with the DVD.

I would definitely recommend Rock 'N Learn Sight Words, it gets kids familiar with common words and sounds, as well as helping reading and recognizing the words.  Who doesn't want to learn while having fun!

BUY IT: Visit RockNLearn.com, and coupon code JQ7711 to get 25% off your purchase.

Don't forget to subscribe for their newsletter.

WIN IT: Rock 'N Learn has generously offered one of Kids and Deals readers to win their own CD or DVD of their choice!


Disclosure: I received a DVD to review, all opinions are mine, I did not receive any other forms of compensation.

Farm Rich Stuffed Pretzel Bites Review & Giveaway (3 winners)

 This review is going to make you hungry!

I've talked about Farm Rich before and I have yet to find a product anyone in our family does not like. 

We got to try their first new product of 2011, their Stuffed Pretzel Bites!  And yes, they are as yummy as they sound!

The Stuffed Pretzel Bites are miniature soft pretzel snacks stuffed with cheese.  You don't have to feel guilty eating them either, each serving size has just 110 calories, and contains only 3 grams of fat and 0 grams trans-fat.  Now, find a yummy frozen snack with those numbers, good luck!

They are so easy to prepare, either in the oven or microwave.  If you are starving go with the microwave option, and they will be ready in 45 seconds.  If you have a little patience, go with the oven option.  In the oven, they take 10 minutes to prepare, and they are so good.  The microwave option is good, but the oven is definitely best. 

The kids loved the Stuffed Pretzel Bites as a snack.   A nice this with these is that unlike some mozzarella products, where they might choke on the cheese sometimes, the cheese in the Stuffed Pretzel is not stringy at all.

Farm Rich has tons of other delicious products.  From Cheese Sticks, to Philly Cheese Steaks, and even Meatballs and Bacon Cheeseburgers!
I love that Farm Rich uses premium ingredients in all their products.  You will get 100% real cheeses, and white meat chicken.  Also, all their products have 0g trans fats per serving. If that wasn't enough, several of their products provide good sources of calcium and protein.

For quick easy foods, I love giving those to the kids, they love it, and I know they are getting quality ingredients.

BUY IT: Look in your grocery store freezer or try their store locator.

WIN IT:  Farm Rich has generously offered three Kids and Deals readers to each win a coupon good for one Free Farm Rich Product of their choice!

Paper Coterie Review and Giveaway (10 winners!)

Paper Coterie

It's no secret, I'm a huge fan of anything relating to kids, pictures, and memories!  I was so excited when I got the opportunity to try papercoterie.  They have some of the cutest photo projects out there.  What I love about their site, is that they offer things that you cannot find anywhere else.  They still have the traditional photo books and cards, but they also have very unique items like, personalized growth charts, memory boxes and more.  I would describe their style as stationary photo projects.

Papercoterie.com is very simple to use.  You upload your pictures, pick a project, choose where to put your pictures in your project and you're done.  Now, if you want to be more involved, and edit and change things, you can do that as well.


I decided to create a "10 Things I Love About You" 20 X 13 poster, and a Desktop Sentiments

10 Things - HarvestTheir posters are very unique.  They are durable, breathable fabric posters which are made with a special adhesive so they will stick and re-stick to virtually any surface. Plus they won't crumple, tear, or fade. I had never seen these available anywhere, and they are as great as they claim to be.  I love the fact that I don't have to worry about it getting hurt if I have to move it places.  The quality is beautiful, and it looks great on the wall.  I am so proud to show it off.

We chose the Grandma Desktop Sentiments.  They are cards that document memories with grandma.  They are printed on premium 100% recycled fiber paper, and made from 100% recycled materials. You can edit the text to make it more personal and add pictures.  They are beautiful, and have a high quality look to them.  They are great for gifts, and you can choose different themes too.  Again, I had never seen a product like that offered on any other site.

I love the uniqueness of Paper Coterie products.  They are definitely one of a kind, and the quality is amazing.

BUY IT: Visit Papercoterie, and make your creation.  Prices vary.  

Enjoy 40% off your order + free shipping. Just enter the code TELLYOURSTORY.

(CLOSED) WIN IT: Paper coterie and MomSelect have generously offered 10 Kids and Deals readers to each win a code to spend $40 at Paper Coterie with free shipping!  You heard right, 10 of you will win!
