Tip Of The Day: Aluminum Foil

Aluminium Foil

  • Sharpen your scissors by cutting through 6-8 layers of foil.
  • Shine rusty chrome by scrubbing with a little water on a wadded up piece of aluminum foil.
  • Keep birds out of your fruit trees by hanging twisted strips of aluminum foil on them with fishing line.
  • Eliminate electromagnetic interference if your TV and DVD player are stacked on top of each other.  Place a sheet of aluminum foil between them.
  • Iron more effectively by putting a piece of aluminum foil under the ironing board cover.  The foil will reflect the heat from the iron so both sides get ironed at once.
  • Move furniture with ease by putting small pieces of foil under the legs, dull side down.
  • Clean starch buildup from your iron by running a hot iron over a piece of aluminum foil.

Freschetta Pizza

This is a Sponsored Post written by me on behalf of Freschetta. All opinions are 100% mine.

All pizzas are not created equal. I recently learned that when I tried the Freschetta FlatBread Pizza.  I’m so use to frozen pizza tasting — well, pretty bland.  Freschetta pizzas?  Not bland at all!  My family and I tried the Zesty Italian pizza and I’d give it two thumbs up!  This flatbread pizza has the thinnest crust I’ve ever seen.  Thin, but yummy though.  The Zesty Italian pizza has pepperoni, genoa salami, italian sausage, and mozzarella and asiago cheese.  What impressed me was that these are quality ingredients.  They use all-natural cheeses and a sauce made from real, ripe tomatoes.  The meat is in big chunks with a ton of flavor.  You see these kind of ingredients on fresh pizzas — not frozen ones!  Yet, Freschetta managed to do it and keep the taste!  There are other varieties you can try also:   Roasted Garlic and Spinach, Pepperoni, and Five Cheese.  (I’ve tried all except the Roasted Garlic and Spinach, and they were all yummy).

If this sounds like something you’d like to try (and you want to try this!), you can get $1 off coupon at the Freschetta site.  This pizza is definitely going to be on my shopping list from here on out.

Full Circle: Part 2

As promised, here are a few more of the Full Circle products you should check out:

The vegetable brush Full Circle offers is pretty cool looking. It is part bamboo handle and part natural and recycled bristles. The blend in tough enough to remove dirt. However, it won’t bruise your fruit or vegetables.  Not only is it pretty cute looking, but it also can double as a nail brush!

Another of my favorite Full Circle products has to be the loofah sponge.  It is a sponge on one side and a scrubber on the other.  It works on pretty much everything!  It expends to twice it’s size when it’s wet and is completely biodegradable.  The cellulose is naturally absorbent and resists bacteria too.
This arch shaped sponge will rock your kitchen. It dries super fast and will keep the nasty bacteria off your countertops.  It is naturally absorbent and is the perfect shape to scoop crumbs off your countertop of even your kitchen table.  It air dries naturally and is 100% biodegradable.  It also can be cleaned in the dishwasher (which I love!) or by boiling in water.

Ever try and reuse a paper towel?  We all know how well that usually turns out.  Instead, conserve natural resources and try out these cellulose clothes.  They can be used over and over and over again.  They are naturally absorbent and resists bacteria.  They are awesome.  They don’t rip when wet, and they work quite well (we did a through testing here).  You can freshen them in the dishwasher or by boiling in hot water.

Last but not least, you have the Full Circle dish towels. Can I tell you how much I love these? They are the softest dishtowels I’ve ever owned.  They are 70% bamboo (which makes these so soft and absorbent) and 30% cotton (which makes them durable and comfy).  They are super absorbent and quick drying too.  I’ve even used them to dry off our slide and swings outside after an evening rain.  Soaked everything right up, and the kids could have their fun.

I’ve grown to really like all of the Full Circle products.  I love that I’m helping keep garbage out of the landfills when I use their products.  I love that I’m making the world a better place for my kids.  I also love how useful and trendy their products are — you’ll happily leave them out on your counters!
