Green Bags Keep It Fresh

The Debbie Meyer Green Bags were a toss  up for me- I really expected them not to work at ALL. They were a gift and, in fact, I didn’t use them for a really long time because I was convinced they wouldn’t work.

I got bored one day and put some of our fresh veggies in one of them and left the other vegetables in the fridge bin like usual.

The green bagged vegetables WAY outlasted the non-bagged ones. Granted, I wasn’t intending to do this blog when I did this experiment a year ago so I have no idea the actual amount of days they outlasted but I know it was more than 3 days that the green bagged veggies were good past the non-bagged ones.

Pretty amazing, huh? Especially for about $10 at your local grocery or home store!

The Sham Wow Review

When I first saw this product on tv I thought it was really dumb.

However, one of our cats is notorious for tipping cups over and spilling its contents all over the floor so the first time it happened after we had the sham wow (the real As Seen On TV product) my husband and I were absolutely amazed.

It got up every drop of water and all we did was wring out the sham wow ONCE.

IMPORTANT: You have to get the sham wow totally wet first, wring it out so it’s damp, then go over to the spot and either punch down on it or step on it a few times and it draws the liquid right out!

You can get them at Walgreens and lots of other places online for about $30 depending on how many you buy.

  • As Seen On TV. Holds 21 times its weight in liquid. Machine washable and bleachable
  • Cleans up spills fast
  • Lasts for years

The Shark Steam Mop Vs. The Smart Mop

Mopping the floor is a PAIN- always has been, always will be, but for germ-a-phobes like me it’s a little more difficult because I want to be sure that my floor is as clean as possible.

I have textured tile (you know, the kind with the slight bumps and ridges along each tile’s surface) so my first thought was to get the Shark Steam Mop.

You’ve all seen one- they have them at Target, Walmart, and even in the Sky Mall catalogs. They’re about $70-$80 (based on a quick Google shopping search)

Product specs from their website:

Make dirty floors a thing of the past. With triple-layer, steam-activated micro-fiber pads, the Shark® Steam Mop loosens, lifts, and locks in dirt. What’s more, its super-heated steam sanitizes floors, killing harmful germs and E. coli. And the Steam Mop does it all without the use of harmful chemicals – making it an ideal choice around pets and children. Think your current mop can do that?

With the Shark® Steam Mop, you’ll enjoy:

  • On-demand steam – natural mopping motion delivers super-heated steam in just 30 seconds, and dries almost immediately
  • 99.9% sanitization against germs and bacteria
  • 2 washable micro-fiber pads lift and lock in dirt – no more messy mops and heavy buckets
  • A soft-grip handle and comfortable design that make it easy to maneuver without physical strain
  • A quick-release cord – easily store and release the 20-foot power cord
  • Safe cleaning on hard-floor surfaces – especially hardwood floors

Included Accessories:

  • 2 Micro-Fiber Pads
  • Filling Flask & Funnel

I used it for a while but I HATED IT. The INSTANT I was done steam mopping (with a clean pad of course) I got on the floor and did my “paper towel test”- STILL DIRTY. UGH!

Then I saw the technology behind the Sham Wow’s. That will be a separate post so I won’t give it away but you’re smart so I’m sure you’ll figure out my verdict on it.

So I though, well, I’ll try the Smart Mop. $14.99 at Walgreens.

The mop with a twist!

This is the same mop you’ve seen on national TV; the same mop that miraculously makes spills disappear in seconds! That’s right! The mop quickly cleans up all kinds of spills, even sand and dirt, and still rinses clean in seconds. Features a heavy duty 3-piece pole construction, holds up to 10 times its weight in liquid and its easy wring action means no backbreaking bending over and no more wet hands. Plus, the unique cleaning fabric is super absorbent on all surfaces so cleaning time is cut dramatically. Throw away those ordinary sponges and rag mops that can shred, streak and scratch because the amazing Smart Mop makes everyday mopping obsolete!

  • Sturdy self wringer
  • Non-rust aluminum pole
  • Easy store handle
  • Huge 17″ super absorbent cleaning head
  • Replaceable mop head
  • 3 Smart Cloths included

You guys. IT IS AMAZING. No joke, this mop cleaned my textured tile floors and they passed my paper towel/white glove test. It is easy to use. It really does NOT drip, and it’s reusable. I have virtually no upper body strength but it really works without tough scrubbing, etc.

The Smart Mop wins HANDS DOWN. Save your money. Save yourself frustration. Buy a Smart Mop!
