Recipe of a Different Kind....



I thought that I will have plenty of time in my hand, during this 2 weeks school break, at least to carry out half of the gazillion things on my "to-do" lists but alas... nothing happened.

What I see ~ dirty window panes (my excuse is ~ it has been raining lately, we had so much rain in Spring...), spiders weaving their webs along the walkway under the gutters (again ...same excuse - blame it on the rain!!). I have a leaky shower that took months to get it fixed.
My cisterns are making lots of noises, my first thought was....I had some invinsible tenants who had a fixation on my cisterns!!! 
Its kind of eerie when you hear the noises in the dead quiet of the night.

Fingers crossed everything will be sorted out soon...


... but for this week
 I am sharing a different kind of recipe, its not for any of us to consume (unless you wish to spring clean your gutter!!! definitely not recommended at all).
I have tried Miracle Spray cleaner and will soon try the window cleaner.

Cath Armstrong (Cheapskate.com) Shower cleaner is the best...better than the commercial cleaner.

Imagine, you just moved into a new home, all spanking clean, glass shower screen was spotless! 
After a month of constant use, mornings and evenings, soap scum started to develop on the screen. I am paranoid BIG time over little things. 
Tried all the store bought chemical cleaners, spray the whole shower screen...fumes getting up my nostrils and caused dizziness for a couple of days,  the result ~ my shower glass wasn't sparkling clean...grrrr
until I was told by my other half (who happened to watch TV one evening...) about this ...

After the first use... I can tell you this ~ I will NOT trade this cleaner (shower cleaner) with any store bought commercial cleaner anymore!!! It's brilliant... 
little note: your bathroom will smell like fish and chip shop for a while...but hey!!! its better than the chemical fume, right?
