We have a good bit of company come through our house on a regular basis…and we have 4 dogs. While I try to keep my house relatively clean it is well lived-in and is rarely spotless. I like to joke that you can come see me anytime, but if you are coming to see my house you better make an appointment a year in advanced.
One trick that I LOVE to use when I get a call that someone is going to be here in minutes and there isn’t time to really clean things up is to use smell good products. Light a candle, spray air freshener, etc. A clean smell always makes an environment seem cleaner.
I received some of the new scents in the mail from Air Wick. Ohhhh, I can’t wait…they smelled FABULOUS and I hadn’t even opened the box!
Then I realized that one of the tops wasn’t on correctly and it had leaked. :0(
And let me tell you…if you ever need to remove the finish off of any furniture…they work great for that! I will be stripping my table and re-finishing it now from where it leaked on mine.
The Air Wick National Parks Collection is available in scented oils, scented candles, reed diffusers, and a freshmatic spray. Available in 6 scents:
Grand Canyon — be awestruck by the breathtaking majesty of the Grand Canyon then discover the subtle
floral notes of delicate cactus blossoms carried on the warm summer breeze.
Virgin Islands — find yourself in the idyllic paradise of Virgin Islands National Park and uncover the delightful
notes of tropical plumeria & sweet honeysuckle.
Gulf Islands — bask in the fragrant scents that take you to the Gulf Islands, rich in white sand beaches and
seashores that evoke sun-drenched sweet notes of a tropical paradise.
American Samoa — explore the lush paradise of American Samoa National Park to finally reach the sweet
refreshing notes of native coconut & island palms.
Denali — seek renewal in the sun-drenched valleys of Denali National Park while breathing in the clean notes
of pure cotton grass & fresh spring air.
Hawai’i — escape to a tropical island sunset in Hawai’i Kaloko – Honokohau National Historical Park and savor
the unspoiled notes of exotic papaya and hibiscus flower.
My personal favorite is the American Samoa! Ohhhhh my goodness, it smells heavenly. I also like the clean smell of Denali.
The limited edition collection was crafted by fragrance experts who spend countless hours creating the perfect harmony of fragrance notes representative of the natural elements found in these national parks and pays homage to the brand’s “The Craft of Fragrance” creative platform. “Air Wick is thrilled to partner with the National Park Foundation to preserve and celebrate the purity and beauty of America’s over 400 national parks,” said Domenick Tiziano, Senior Brand Manager, Reckitt Benckiser. “While not every consumer has visited a national park, these fragrances are a catalyst for the senses, transporting the consumer to some of the nation’s most amazing places.”
And that they do. At first whiff you just feel like you have been whisked away. And let me tell you…I needed that right now!
The full range of products, available in stores now, retails from $2.99 – $5.99
These babies are OhMyStinkinHeck DELICIOUS!! Seriously, I know they sounds a little weird, but give them a try, you are going to be amazed. I made them for our Memorial Day get-together and they were the first things to disappear. I didn’t make nearly enough to go around and heard about it for days.
You only need chicken wings, raspberry jelly, apple cider vinegar, soy sauce and garlic salt.
Mix up the sauce and pour it on.
Bake and enjoy!
3 pounds chicken wings
1 cup Raspberry jam ( I use the seedless kind)
1/2 cup apple cider vinegar
1/2 cup soy sauce
2 teaspoons red pepper flakes
Mix the raspberry jam, vinegar, soy sauce and red pepper flakes together in a large bowl. Place the chicken wings in the sauce, coating each one well. Place each wing on a foil lined baking sheet. Bake at 350 degrees for 45 minutes to 1 hour.Print This Post

We recently celebrated my son Tate’s 16th birthday. We cooked a boatload of food and the results of that was a boatload of dishes. The one thing that Tate asked for was sticky chicken. Now, as you can imagine by the name…it is sticky. Which makes for hard to clean dishes. Now, cook 20 pounds of that…and that folks is how you get a boatload of…
…some really hard to clean dishes.
Perfect for trying out the new Cascade Platinum Pacs
Normally, I almost wash my dishes before placing them in the dishwasher, but I didn’t with these. I simply rinsed the majority of the mess off and decided to try and see if they would really come clean or not.
I placed a Cascade Platinum pac in the compartment and said a little prayer. Why would I say a little prayer about my dishes? Well, because if this doesn’t really work that mess is REALLY going to be stuck on!
It actually WORKS!
Seriously, just look!!!
I am amazed, and thrilled!
