Six Ways to Use Shelf Liner When Living With Kids

This post brought to you by Duck Brand. All opinions are 100% mine. Sometimes I pretend that I'm an adult. Wait no--I AM an adult.

So the other day we discover my 3-year-old has been trying to clean the bathroom mirror with Lysol.  And then we found out he had sprayed it directly in his mouth.  Such an awful moment for everyone!  Ever since then, my husband and I have been feeling a lot more inclined to buying the more natural ingredient cleansers.  We've never been pro or against them before, I just wanted to buy a cleanser that worked.  After the Lysol thing, I was ready … [Read more...]
