Amazon Home Must Haves

1 | 2 | 3 | 4 | 5 | 6 | 7 | 8 | 9 | 10

#1. The Softest Sheets | These sheets are not only the softest and great quality, but they’re also extremely affordable, so you can stock up your linen closet! They come in a variety of colors, as well.

#2. Sanitizing Steam Mop | When Hudson was a baby and crawling all over the house, it put my mind at ease knowing I can sanitize the floors in just a few minutes. It’s still one of my favorite cleaning items. I bought these extra steam mop pads to go with it.

#3. The Ultimate Carpet/Upholstery Stain Remover | I often get asked, how do you have a white couch with a toddler!? This product is one of the main reasons we are able to! (I’ll do a post on the others soon.) There has been everything from mac and cheese, to markers on our white couch, and this removes literally anything and everything, and it’s non-toxic. I keep an arsenal of these in our cleaning cabinet, because you can use it in your carpet scrubber also!

#4. Fridge & Pantry Organizers | I use these throughout the fridge to keep yogurts, juice boxes, and fruit organized. I love using them throughout the cabinets (especially lazy suzan cabinets) to store carton foods, rice, quinoa, etc. I love this larger option also.

#5. Wool Dryer Balls |  Instead of using dryer sheets, I add essential oils to these dryer balls to cut down on drying time, and soften our clothes without synthetic fragrances and chemicals.

#6. Drawer Organizers | Micro-organizing makes life so much easier IMO. I use these in the bathroom drawers, and my desk drawers and it prevents them from becoming “junk drawers.”

#7. Stainless Steel Squeegee | This is an essential for glass shower doors. It keeps them streak-free in-between cleanings.

#8. Spinning Organizer | I have two corner cabinets in my kitchen, and this has been the ultimate solution for keeping them organized! I put all of our thermos style cups, and bottles in them and it keeps everything nice and neat. I also use them in our medicine cabinet and to organize spices.

#9. Microfiber Facial Washcloths | Literally the softest washcloths ever! I love using these to remove makeup, and wash and exfoliate my face at night.

#10. Dyson Pure Cool Link Wi-Fi Air Purifier | With us having allergies and asthma in our family, I feel so much better having an air purifier. It automatically removes 99.97% of allergens and pollutants, including pollen, dust, mold spores, bacteria and pet dander from your home.

 

Weekend DIY: Makeup Brush Cleaner

Makeup Brush Cleaner

I’ve purchased countless makeup brush cleaners from my favorite beauty stores and brands only to find that nothing was actually removing all of the residue. I came across a Pinterest recipe (& tweaked), and just had to share again because it’s still blowing my mind.

Ingredients:

  • 1 Cup Hot Water
  • 2 T Dish Soap
  • 2 T Distilled White Vinegar

Just swirl brush around in the cup with mixed ingredients. Rinse with hot, then cold water, pat dry excess water & let dry brush side up in a cup.

My makeup brushes look brand new in seconds, tell me you don’t love it!

Just swirl brush around in the cup with mixed ingredients. Rinse with hot, then cold water, pat dry excess water & let dry brush side up in a cup.
  2. Diptyque ‘Baies’ Scented Candle – This candle is so relaxing and refreshing! It just smells pretty. A new nightstand staple.
  3. ShoeMint Hillary Flats – Pointed toe & a bow are one of my favorite combinations right now! So cute.
