lightload towel 3 pack

World renowned Lightload Towels are the only beach towels that fit in your pocket. All our towels are survival tools. Use them for so much including a firestarter, face mask, insulation,diaper and more. The towels are soft against the skin and washable. Great for packing in small places and excellent for shedding weight.

Do you have an emergency kit or first aid kit? Lightload towels would make a great addition, or if traveling with little ones Lightload towels would be great (even for the big kids :) ). Keeping a pack in your glove box, diaper bag, or wherever for when you need them & they are always ready & waiting.lightload 4

I was discussing with my friends about what was in my emergency kit when I came across lightload towels & I thought they would make a great addition to any survival kit, emergency disaster supply kit or first aid kit & I am so happy to get to try these towels & to spread the word about them to my fans, family & friends. So friends pay attention because I think you might just want to get some of these towels.

The Only Towels That Are Survival Tools!
-Wickable Fabric so keeps you from freezing in Cold Activities!
-More Absorbent than Cotton and Microfiber!
-Waterproof Packaging so Always have a Clean Dry Cloth in the Outdoors!
-Ultralight-weight and superior for packing into small spaces!

I was sent the 3 pack of hand towels to try & do this review & giveaway for (12X24″30X60CM HAND SIZE), but Lightload makes varying sizes so check them all out. When the 3 pack arrived the towels were in small packs about the size of a 50 cent piece only kinda thicker, very conventional for storing & carrying easily, & I love the packaging is waterproof so no need to replace often. So we proceeded to open one so we could try it out. At first I had a bit of a time getting it unfolded but It took my teen daughter to tell me I was doing it wrong & wha la it was open & ready for use.

The world renowned Lightload Towels are the only towels that are survival tools. Use them as a towel, wash cloth fire starter, first aid supplement, diaper, insulator, static electricity insulator, mask and more. Each piece packs down to 1.5″ in diameter and 5.75″ in girth and .25″ in. width..They’re great for storing in tight spaces like suitcases and small pouches.
They weigh a mere .6oz so you’ll find them helpful where weight is a concern like in travel or backpacking.

Right away I noticed how lightweight the towels were, kinda like those thin paper towels like mechanics use might be the closest comparison without totally being like them. We found light load towels to be very absorbent & able to absorb more fluid & hold it that any ordinary paper towel ever could, all while being thin, lightweight, strong & durable. We even washed & dried it several times, I do not think it would last through to many washes but it is great for 1 or 2 uses & emergency use.

Waterproof packaging covers each piece. Because of this  you’ll always have a clean dry cloth  for good hygiene, personal care and first aid.
The material is 100 percent viscose and made from cellulose(not oil, like microfiber) acts as a sponge and absorbs up to nine times it’s weight in water. They are also very energy efficient needing little energy to carry, wash and dispose of. Add water to the towel or start wiping water off of you to soften and open easier. They’re very comfortable against the skin and are also great for indoor gyms and spas. In caring for the Lightloads hand washing is best.You can reuse them. They last until they don’t.

So I am very happy to tell you about these towels & I hope you will find them as interesting & as useful as I did, I wish I had these towels when my kids were younger, what a lifesaver they would have been so many times. I am also happy to now know about this company & to be able to spread the word, so many of my friends are looking for just this type of product.

This three pack is a great gift and is easily mailed. Colors of the towels are assorted.You golfers can freeze to make a cold towel.
Being great as a game piece too on rainy days,  you can use as a checkerboard piece or puck. Boy Scouts and kid campers love this feature.
Lightload Towels have been written about in many magazines including Climbing Magazine, Bike Magazine and Sailing Magazine.

Giveaway/Review: Belitae Organics FRESH-C Vitamin C serum

Disclosure: I got this product as part of an advertorial.

belitae organics

belitae

Belitae’s FRESH-C Vitamin C Serum with “STAY C-50

OK yea I have talked about vitamin C serum before on my blog & yes I love vitamin C serum & all it can do for my skin, something so simple to use that provides great results naturally. But I must really say this belitaebottle_150x300_trans1-120x300vitamin C serum by belitae organics moved to the top of my favorites list very fast. I have tried many brands & this one would be tied for my favorite. So yea it is amazing to say the least.

Some vitamin C serums though great & effective irritate the skin around my nose & on my neck, I love that the belitae did not do this, I had no bad reactions to it at all. Another down side to some vitamin C serums is they sometimes become less effective than they were when first using, so far this vitamin C serum has remained as effective & I have liked it more & more rather than less & less.

Fine lines & wrinkles become less noticeable or disappear, skin looks firmer & healthier, skin tone evens out & gets a healthy glow.

Make sure to enter to win your own amazing belitae vitamin C serum below

What makes Belitae FRESH-C Vitamin C serum so unique? It is formulated with STAY-C50!

STAY-C50 is proven to be a more stable and bioavailable form of Vitamin C…unlike any other serum! This Vitamin C serum bio-converts to L-ascorbic acid with the enzymes on the skin and so it is available when needed! And although STAY-C 50 is an extremely potent antioxidant, it does not oxidize in the bottle.

Cheree’s Favorites

Easy to use with great results:

Directions: Apply 2-3 drops to the face and neck twice daily after cleansing. Allow for absorption before applying moisturizer.

What I like to do is wash my face with either baking soda & water or borax & water, pat dry & apply the vitamin C serum, wait 5 to 10 minutes & apply raw coconut oil. This works like a charm, I usually only do this once a day though.

CitraSolv review: Citra Suds Laundry Detergent – Citra Dish Automatic Dishwasher Detergent

Clean your laundry & dishes naturally with CitraSolv.

CitraSolve logo
Spring Cleaning time!

Citra Suds Laundry Detergent 2X Concentrate Liquid Free & Clear - Citra Dish Automatic Dishwasher Detergent Valencia Orange -

CSQuotesHS

Today I want to tell you about 2 more awesome Citra Solv products, Citra Suds Laundry detergent & Citra Dish Dishwasher detergent, I already did a blog post on the Citra Dish soap & Citra Solve Multi-Purpose cleaner (here) Spring cleaning has continued at our house & these Citra Solv products have been a big part of the cleaning process. Let me remind you why I as a DIY cleaning person willingly used Citra Solv products so as to bring you my fans a review. Many are you looking for a company that makes great safe natural cleaners you can count on.  DIY cleaners great but just not everyone’s thing. So enter Citra Solv & my review. Citra Solv is a company that has been doing Citra Solvenatural right for over 25 years, a company you can trust. Yes we prefer DIY cleaners but I understand so many of my fans just do not have the time or resources to be making cleaners, but these same people want to know what is safe to use for their family. So I am happy to be telling you about 2 more great Citra Solv products.

Our philosophy has always been to offer people high-quality cleaning and personal care products without sacrificing performance or the environment. We specialize in the development of naturally derived products made from renewable resources that have a minimum impact on our world—right down to the environmentally conscious packaging they come in. 

In short, we want to feel good about the products we make. And we do, every day.

Let me tell you Citra Solv sending us the free & clear laundry detergent was perfect timing, since my not on board with DIY laundry soap husband was in the mood to pull out his summer clothes & get washing. We did have to get more creative with the Automatic dish washing detergent since our dishwasher bit it over a year ago so we wash all dishes by hand (we so need another dishwasher). But not to worry we figured out some good uses & still found a way to tell you how it works in a dishwasher too.

Our Customers are king. And that means you.

Everything we do is driven by our desire to exceed the expectations of our customers and every product is the result of our commitment to offer only the best. That’s why each of our products comes with a 100% Money Back Guarantee. We encourage you to email or write us with your thoughts on our family of products. 

Citra Suds Laundry Detergent 2X Concentrate Liquid Free & ClearAs I said my husband is not totally on board with DIY laundry soap & as my fans know his natural journey has been slow with him CitraSolv Laundrybaulking much of the time, but I am slowly winning him over naturally, it has only taken me 19 years to get him to this point :) He was happy to try the laundry detergent (Surprise, surprise) & for him he was even happier it said free & clear. He loved how fresh without perfumes his clothes smelled & how well the detergent worked even on his grimy work uniforms. So I am happy to say this Citra Solv Detergent is “Husband Approved”  

My husband is not the only one who liked the Citra Solv Laundry detergent, my teen who is queen of the laundry also loved this product, she liked using it best for stains (pre treated) rubbing it in mixed with the Dishwasher detergent with a toothbrush & washing after an hour or so. So yes this also gets the “Teen Approved” stamp. I also got to use it on a few loads so that I could see for myself & it worked very well & as a plus none of my sensitive skinned family had any rashes or breakouts from this laundry detergent.

FROM OUR HOME TO YOURS™

Refreshing cleaners that work…. naturally. 

 Citra Dish Automatic Dishwasher Detergent Valencia OrangeAs I said above our dishwasher does not work, yes it sits here in our home a non working appliance mocking us as we wash a never ending supply of dishes in tiny trailer sinks. So then how can I review dishwasher detergent you might ask? Simple I had one of my friends try it for several loads of dishes & they loved it so much they asked me for more. My CitraSolv dishwasher detfriends words: The orange scent was amazing & might have been my favorite part of using this powder in my dishwasher, but the powder also works amazing at cleaning & shinning my dishes, no complaints from me, I would use it again & recommend it.

Other uses we found for this Dishwasher detergent by Citra Solv, as I mentioned above it worked great mixed with the laundry detergent as a spot & stain remover, we also found it great for adding to very hot water and soaking burned on pains long enough to be able to remove the built up burned spots off & to soak other dishes that needed a more through cleaning (spring cleaning after all). We also found this dishwasher detergent great at getting lime scale out of the toilet bowl, we added some to hot water mixed till dissolved added to toilet bowl let sit a few minutes & used a toilet brush. It also worked great pre soaking any dingy clothes it hot water with several tbsp of the dishwasher powder (we only did this with whites).

 I am happy to recommend these 2 Citra Solv Products, and they both for sure are on my “Cheree’s Favorites” list

All of our products are green. Even the orange ones.

Review: North Coast Organics – All Natural Deodorants- Organic, Vegan

Disclosure: I got this product as part of an advertorial.

Let me tell you about 3 totally amazing deodorants from North Coast Organics.

Death By Lavender - naked Revolver

NCO_Header_Logo

Organic Certified, Vegan Certified All Natural Deodorants.

You just have no idea how happy I am to tell you about these 3 deodorants. Yes I use DIY deodorant & yes I love my DIY deodorant, but I have so many fans who are looking for great natural deodorants & that DIY is not their thing at all. And trust me I know there are like a zillion natural deodorants you can buy that just do not cut it. But trust me it was worth trying a zillion & 1 of them to find these 3 amazing deodorants by North Coast Organics & to be able to tell you about them.

Let me first say this to you, if you have teen girls with body odor issues these are by far the best deodorants ever, I have 3 teen girls so I know, we put them to the test on some hot days doing hard jobs & more. Not only did they work every time without fail but my teens loved them My oldest has now declared I must get her more of the Death by Lavender though she liked them so well she said she would even use the Revolver because she liked all 3. So yes these deodorants are by far “Teen Approved” & my teens are telling everyone they know they love them so much.

Certs_Banner
I used the naked & I love it, it is unscented but thats fine with me. Yes I had to let go of my trusty DIY deodorant to give this deodorant a fair chance, yes I even had to stop myself from adding baking soda with it just in case. And guess what, this deodorant worked with nothing else ever needed, I did not even need to reapply throughout the day even on our hot days. This might sound like a very strange conversation to be having with your teen daughters, but hey we are kinda nutty that way, but we were discussing how amazing these deodorants were & smelling each other saying, you smell great, no body odor at all. I was sent the 3 Pack of Travel Size Deodorants & I must say we want more full size & trial sizes. So just because they are little is no clue they wont last, we have been using these trial sizes just over 2 weeks & they are still going. The trial size is also perfect for carrying on the go, for taking on vacation, for giving to a friend or house guest. We did not have any melting issues other than somehow mine got up under my laptop & got really hot & soft, but after letting it sit it was fine, so my only warning is, do not keep your deodorant under your laptop :)

186843621

I was going to have my husband try the Revolver until I realized were needed to be greedy & keep it for us, yes the scent seems a bit more manly but it is not at all a turnoff for my teen girls even, they had no problem using it, so yea we did not share it.

It is rare that I say you need to buy these, but yea you do. We will keep them around to use when my kids stay overnight with friends, for on the go, whatever, so yea they are on my “Family Wishlist” & “Cheree’s Favorites” Plus they earn the right to be on my “Toxic Free posts list”

Yes I am going to rave again about how much I love Tropical Traditions & all their high quality products, as you all know I totally love their Gold label virgin coconut oil & as my fans know to this point I still have not meet a Tropical Traditions product I do not love. And yes you guessed it I do love the Coconut flour too, such a great addition to cooking & baking healthy & as a plus for those with gluten issues this is a great healthy alternative for you as well. I really liked using it to make things like waffles, gravy etc, but I think I liked it paired with Einkorn flour the best, the 2 flours together made an amazing taste that was super yummy.

 How To Use Coconut FlourCoconut flour is the fiber from the coconut meat after almost all the oil has been extracted to make coconut oil. Being gluten free makes coconut flour a suitable wheat flour substitute for those with gluten and wheat allergies. It is also high in protein and fiber, containing more fiber than gluten-based grains. That said, coconut flour can be a very finicky product to work with. When adapting a recipe to coconut flour there are a few important things to keep in mind (info here)

Gravy:  I start with saved stock/drippings in a pan over medium heat, add about 1/4 cup organic powdered/dry milk & 1/4 cup coconut flour for every cup or 2 of liquid, keep whisking & you also add 1 tsp of coconut oil (optional) & 1 teaspoon natural unrefined salt & black pepper.Add other spices of choice, keep whisking, you may need to turn heat down, cook until desired thickness & bubbling, you can add more liquid like water to thin if needed, we love to make sausage gravy, bacon gravy or even gravy from chicken & beef etc with this recipe. As a plus we like to also add just a but of finely cut up meat to the gravy.

Waffles: 1 cup einkorn flour, 1 cup coconut flour, 3 teaspoons baking powder, 1/2 teaspoon natural salt, 1/8 cup whole unbleached organic sugar, 3/4 cup milk of choice, 3/4 cup water, 3 egg yolks, 1 tbsp organic vanilla extract, 1/2 cup melted butter or coconut oil or palm shortening, 3 Egg Whites.

Whisk together the flours, baking powder, salt, & sugar in a mixing bowl. In another mixing bowl, whisk together milk, water, 3 egg yolks, & vanilla. Now pour wet mixture over your dry mixture stir until mostly mixed. Add the melted butter & continue mixing. In another mixing bowl beat the egg whites with a whisk or hand mixer until stiff. Slowly fold them into your batter until mixed (do not over mix) Now add to your waffle iron & cook & enjoy.

As I said we love baking & cooking & prefer to cook healthier, so this great coconut flour fits into our life really well. I read of many who like adding this flour to their smoothies, I have to try that too.
