#Giveaway: New Purex Plus Clorox 2 Conquers Stains Protects Colors - ends 5/16/16 US

With having such a large family, fighting stains in clothing was an ongoing war.  I was always trying something to get those rascally stains out of the clothes.  I finally ended up using hydrogen peroxide, baking soda, and dish washing soap.  What a bother it was treating item after item for the wash.  Now I have a new method to get out the horrible stains - Purex plus Clorox 2 detergent with Stain Fighting Enzymes.  Many thanks to the Social Insiders team for selecting me to review this brand new detergent from Purex!

What a vast difference New Purex with Clorox 2 has done to our laundry routine - so much more simpler!  Purex with Clorox 2 detergent has been specifically formulated to remove the toughest stains.  It will work hard in the wash water to remove 100 different types of stains, yet it is safe for colors, and is bleach free!

Kids are notorious mess makers.  Most of the times it's because they are having fun!  I still remember many a good outfit that I would put on my kids and come to find a stubborn stain that just would not come out - no matter how hard I tried or what I used.  Family's are so lucky to have new developments in stain treatment now.

To keep your family's clothes their cleanest, Purex plus that extra powering boost of Clorox 2 contains 3 stain-fighting enzymes to remove 100 stains:

  • Removes starchy stains like chocolate and tomato sauce
  • Removes protein-based stains like grass and blood
  • Removes food stains that use guar gum like ice cream and BBQ sauce.
Have a tough tough stain.  Just rub some Purext plus clorox 2 detergent into the fabric and letting it sit for 5 minutes before you wash.  That will take care of it!

Does it matter what kind of washing machine you have?  Not at all! Purex plus Clorox 2 detergent has been specially formulated to work in High Efficiency machines as well as standard top-loading washing machines.

There are two different scents that you can choose from.  I received Sunny Linen scent.  It's a sweet light scent that does not overpower your senses.  You also will also find that Purex plus Clorox 2 comes in their Original Fresh scent.

Totally Color Safe and contains no bleach!  To be on the safe side, you should check the labels on your clothing and follow the direction there.

I am very happy with the results from using Purex plus Clorox 2 in my wash.  I do see a difference in the level of clean!  For Purex, innovation is about formulating new products with quality ingredients at a smart value.  Check out the Purex website for yourself.  Here's you'll find where to buy New Purex plus Clorox 2.

#Sponsored Give Mom the Perfect Family Photo In a Unique Frame

Mother's Day is just around the corner, and it's time to get Mom something unforgettable.  As a mom, what do I like for a Mother's Day gift? I love getting framed photos of my children and grandchildren. In this age of digital photography most of the photos my children give me come from emails, but I want to see these photos displayed throughout my home in beautiful frames and not just on the computer.

My children know that mom doesn’t want just any ordinary plain frame. During my lifetime I have searched high and low for unique one-of-a-kind frames, and that’s what I expect when gifted with a new photo. My kids have said me, “Mom, I’ve been everywhere and all we can’t find those unique frames in the stores anymore.” I simply tell them that they are not looking in the right place. They need to go to

At Novica, there is a extensive selection of unique frames from around the world. These frames are uncommon to the selections that are found in department stores. You will find frames featuring mosaics, decoupage, carved wood, and more.  These frames are all unique and all handcrafted from around the world.  I've highlighted below just a few of the frames that I found at Novica that are my favorites.

Precious Memories

What could be more unique than a pair of frames from India that have been covered in a cloth sweetly embroidered and highlighted with beads.  This feminine pair of photo frames, Precious Memories, are one of my favorites.  With their delicate little embroidered flowers and ferns, and little glass beads that will catch and sparkle in the light.  This pair of frames where one features brown, blue and orange while the other is designed with earthy tones of mustard, blue and light green. is perfect to show off 3 x 5 photos.  These frames were designed and handcrafted by Seema in India.  Seema loves to play with fabrics and embroidery, and you see her beautiful craft highlighted perfectly in this pair of frames.

Snow Roses Frame

From Thailand's craftsman, Nikom, a beautiful trio of frames to be hung on the wall.  These delightful frames, Snow Roses, are perfect for your 5 x 7 photos.  These frames are covered in saa paper that have been crafted by hand and decorated with natural dried petals shaping flowers surrounded by leaves.  Saa paper is exclusive to Thailand as it is paper made from the bark of the mulberry tree that is native to north Thailand.  Saa paper is a very Eco-friendly choice of framing material as it is perfectly sustainable as this tree replaces itself faster than it can be used.  With the added dried flower petals, leaves, and accented with with rain tree wood beads, the frames are suspended from a saa cord.  What a darling display with my grandchildren's photos this would be on my wall!

Westerly Winds

From Mexico, a dashing glass mosaic frame from artisan Fabiola Martínez.  Winds play and dance in this fanciful  frame called Westerly Winds.  Each and every one of the beige, orange, brown, and blue shards of glass have been laid down by hand on a wood board, and then grouted.  To bring this frame to its picture perfect completeness, a fine purple border painted by hand is added.  This frame would absolutely be ideal for my little whirlwind of a granddaughter.

Lacquered Wood Frame

Wood frames have been used for years for portraits and pictures, but a wood frame that is as distinctive as the lacquered wood photo frame, Golden Bluebells, would set this mother's heart afire.   I guess out of all of Novica's exceptional line of frames, this one is truly my favorite.  From India's Nantana Sompamitre, she has produced this beautiful wood frame by adding golden details that illuminate a gleaming black lacquer. This elegant design uses traditional techniques on rain tree wood.  To set off this design from all others, Nan adds beautiful bluebells, delicately painted by hand.  In this frame, I can envision the family portrait we took on Christmas morning.

Giving mom or grandmother pictures of her treasured family is one great way to show her how much you care for her.  As a mom and grandmother myself, I love to gaze upon my family photos daily to remember and cherish our moments together.  I have quite a collection of frames that my children can choose from right in my wishlist here at Novica, and I made sure to share it with them.  Having these family photos in a unique beautiful photo frame that could only come from Novica would make my prized memories all the better.

Photo frames are just one of the unique gifts for mom that you can find at
