To fight mildew in the bathroom, soak a few cotton balls in bleach and place them in hard to reach places.  Leave them for a few hours and rinse with warm water.

  • Clean a toilet.  Drop in 2 Alka-Seltzer tablets, wait 20 minutes.  Brush and flush.
  • Attract fish.  Fill a tube jig with a piece of Alka-Seltzer and cast off.
  • Remove burned foods from cookware by filling it with warm water, dissolving six tablets, and let sit for an hour or so.
  • Soothe insect bites.  Dissolve two tablets in water, saturate a cloth or cotton ball, and place on the bite for 30 minutes (unless you are allergic to aspirin!)

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!
