Shaklee Saturday--Basic H2 Can do WHAT???

If you've been here before, you know I love Basic H2:

However, I recently had an experience that showed me what an amazing combination of POWER and GENTLENESS this cleaner is.

I've been staining our newest project--a headboard. 

Well, like a good girl, I wore rubber gloves to stain.  What I didn't count on was that one of the gloves would break, and that my lovely poly AND stain mixture would get all over my cute new Shellac manicure! 

I ran into the house to start washing my hands, but the stain just glommed on to my nails and fingers and resisted any sort of washing efforts.  I did have paint thinner in my paint cabinet, which I knew would probably work, but I hated the thought of rubbing that noxious stuff on my hands.  The fumes alone give me an awful headache.  This is why I was wearing gloves in the first place! 

Then, I remembered that I had my H2 under the sink.  Thinking I had nothing to lose, I put a tiny drop of straight H2 onto a small paper towel and rubbed at my nails.  Not only did the poly/stain mixture come right off, but the finish on my manicure stayed intact and my skin wasn't irritated in the slightest. Not to mention, no fumes or smell whatsoever.  I was floored!

I regret that I didn't have the foresight to get my camera out before trying my little experiment, so that I might have a stunning before and after for you.  I hope you'll take my word for it.  This is truly amazing stuff.

Whirwind tour, as told by Instagram

We took a couple of days out of our Easter break for a mini-getaway.
We took in an A's game on Thursday (the girls' first!), and then continued over to Monterey for some good food, ocean exploring, and the aquarium!

First ride on BART!

Gotta have a dog at the game. :)

Exploring tide pools.

At Bubba Gump's for some fish and chips.

Aquarium and beach photos coming soon!

FREE Shaklee Membership--Green Your Home for Earth Day!

Let's Make 50,000 Homes Healthier!

For the Shaklee Family, every day is Earth Day. But this is a great time of year to tell our environmental story, and to teach how easy - and thrifty - it can be to make a difference for yourself, for your family, and for the planet. One healthier home at a time.

Consider this: one family deciding to convert to our non-toxic biodegradable Basic-H2® household cleaner keeps the equivalent of 5,000 bottles of conventional "ready-to-use" glass cleaner out of landfills. What would it mean if 50,000 families did the same? A great big thanks from the planet, and from people all over the world who share this wonderful home we call Earth.

In honor of Earth Day, over the next 7 weeks, Shaklee will be offering everyone a world of savings, some great ways to make an impact for the planet, and a nice way to make a healthy living too!

Visit my Shaklee site HERE to take advantage of this amazing deal!

We had twin conversations, too!

Long before these two went viral, there were these two:
