Kids love candy, that’s no surprise, so they’re sure to love finding these in their stockings this year! I usually put some candy in my kids’ stockings at Christmas. The 1lb candy bar would be reserved for my husband though as I don’t allow my kids to have too much candy.

I’m the type of person that enjoys hearing weird, random facts about pretty much anything. Lately I’ve really gotten into different laws that states have that are completely out there, but if you’re looking for the mother load of weird, random facts then you’ll want to turn to Ripley’s Believe It Or Not. Every page is jam packed with weird facts, stories, and pictures. When I first received the book I immediately started reading it and had to pull myself away otherwise I would’ve sat there and not accomplished anything I needed to do that day. Eventually the book will go to my son, but until I’m done with it he won’t have a chance to read it. Yes, I am a bit stingy that way.
Thought clothes pins were just for hanging laundry out to dry or crafts? Kelvin Mercado doesn’t think so! He holds the record for pinning the most clothes pins to his face, a total of 161 clothes pins! That’s only one of the fascinating stories you’ll find in the Ripley’s Believe It Or Not! Dare To Look! book. The book also has an extra feature, you can download their 3D interactive app, scan certain pictures in the book, and get bonus content like videos and interviews.
Dare To Look! has also been chosen as a 2013 Parent’s Choice Award Winner in the Fun Stuff category. I’m sure your children will agree that this book is worthy of that award.

Steam cleaning has become a big trend in cleaning homes. There’s a good reason for this of course, steam kills harmful bacteria without potentially harmful chemicals. Since I have children and pets in my home I’ve started to become more aware of the products I use in my home. I never really thought too much about the cleaning products I used simply because I thought that “everybody uses them and they seem to be okay”. My children have never been affected by any cleaning products that I’ve used as far as I can tell, but my oldest daughter does have super sensitive skin and last year my youngest daughter was diagnosed with MRSA. That seemed to be the changing point for me. I had to disinfect everything within my home and ensure that anything she came into contact with as sanitized afterward to reduce the risk of another outbreak. Despite all my disinfecting efforts she had another outbreak the following week.
As part of my effort to make my house as clean as possible to reduce MRSA outbreaks for my daughter I’ve also become very aware of the chemicals I’m using. As soon as I heard the diagnosis of MRSA and the doctor told me I needed to ensure that everything was disinfected to, not only reduce the risk of another outbreak on her, but also reduce the risk of transferring it to another family member I went on a cleaning frenzy and most surfaces got cleaned with straight bleach. I’m sure you can imagine the smell in my home and the burning of my eyes because of all the bleach I used. I soon realized that not only was all those fumes not good for me but they weren’t good for my kids either. So now I’m cleaning as many areas of my home with steam as I possibly can.
I’m super excited to have had the opportunity to review the HomeRight SteamMachine. It has various functions to clean many different areas of your home as well as the ability to remove wallpaper! I don’t have any wallpaper in my home thank goodness (I can’t stand wallpaper) so I won’t be using it for that unless I have a friend or family member who needs some removed. You can use it in your bathroom, kitchen, on your floors, and on your BBQ grill! Since we have hardwood floors in our entire home, except our bathroom that has linoleum, I’m able to use this on all our floors. You don’t want to use it on unsealed floors though since the water and steam can cause buckling.
The SteamMachine is extremely easy to use. You simply fill it up with water using the funnel that is included. Once it’s full you tighten the cap back on and plug it in. You have to wait for the steam to build up within the machine before you can get to cleaning but that takes only about 8 minutes. Now that you’re ready to get to cleaning you’ll have to pay attention to the little orange light on the unit, if that lights up then you’ll need to give the machine a few minutes to build up more steam to continue cleaning.
There are multiple attachments that are included with the SteamMachine so you can clean various surfaces with ease. One of the features that I love about the SteamMachine is that it has a little storage compartment for all the smaller attachments so they’re always within reach when you’re cleaning. There are a couple suggestions that I would make to HomeRight to make the SteamMachine even better; make some sort of pad to go on the handle, and make the cord longer. The SteamMachine comes with 2 extension wands but if you’re tall you may want to buy an extra. I’m only 5 foot 4 and it might be more comfortable to have a 3rd extension wand when I’m cleaning the floors. The handle is hard plastic and I’ve found that if there’s something sticky on my floor or that has dried on the floor I have to “scrub” a little bit and the handle will leave a blister. This may not be the case for everyone though because I get blisters on my hands when I rake leaves or mow the yard as well. The cord for the SteamMachine is 8 feet long which is perfect if you’re cleaning an oven or grill, but when you’re cleaning a floor it’s kind of a pain to have to unplug the machine to move to a different area. It would be nice to get more of my floors cleaned before I have to unplug it and move to a different area.
Other than those few points the SteamMachine is an excellent addition to my household cleaning routine! I highly recommend it to anyone looking to remove some of the chemicals they use in their house and switch to an all natural alternative.

Looking for a gum that won’t rot your kid’s teeth? Then PUR Gum is the gum you need! PUR gum is gluten, GMO, nut, and dairy free. It is vegan and diabetic friendly. My kids love chewing gum but traditional sugar-free gum kind of leaves a bad taste in your mouth so they shy away from sugar-free. Now I can give my kids a gum that is naturally sweet without added sweeteners or chemicals that can contribute to tooth decay.
I was sent 4 packs of PUR Gum to review and my kids loved it! The 4 packs I received didn’t last long as the kids asked for some every single day. They have great flavors like Spearmint, Peppermint, Wintergreen, and Pomegranate Mint. Did you know that chewing sugar-free gum, especially ones enhanced with Xylitol, after eating stimulates bacteria fighting saliva which in turn helps prevent cavities? That’s exactly what PUR Gum does. PUR Gum is also the #1 selling aspartame-free gum in North America!
Here are some other fun gum facts:
The world’s oldest piece of chewing gum is 9,000 years old. (Ewww)
Chewing gum for 1 hour burns 11 calories.
3.74 trillion pieces of chewing gum are sold each year.
The average person chews 300 pieces of gum each year.
Now that you know all the benefits to PUR Gum you can rest easy letting your kids chew it up! They may not have the novelty flavors that some gums offer but they do have the traditional flavors that everyone loves.
