Cornucopia Brands: Pack of 2 Clear Glass Bottles, with Sprayers and Labels #Review #CBClearGlassBottles

DSC_0217 (2)

I have always made my own mixtures when it comes to cleaning products, to stain removers, and even weed killers. The one thing that always fails me is not the mixes I create, but the bottles themselves. I have had bottles that constantly drip because the sprayers are cheap. They drip even when not in use to the point they empty and have even damaged a shelf in the garage.  This not only wastes product but also creates another mess I need to clean up. My last bottle had a sprayer that was so cheaply made, that if you filled the bottle to it’s highest level, the sprayer would pop off because the weight was too much. Infuriating!! I love also when companies label them “pro” as in professional and heavy-duty when they could not even spray simple water out successfully.  Most even clog or half-spray after a few uses.

In comes CB (Cornucopia Brands) with a duo pack of crystal clear glass bottles. They also include labels and each bottle comes with a sprayer advertised as heavy duty and with a stream or spray pattern option when used.

Verdict:

I was already familiar with Cornucopia’s Brand of the cobalt blue bottle with sprayer, and I rank it as my number one favorite sprayer from anything I have tried in the past. I have purchased spray bottles from Industrial stores to hardware stores and none are as good in performance and long lasting as the Cornucopia Brands bottles. The clear glass makes it easy to identify what the bottles contain and if you have doubts, the easy stick on labels not only give the bottles an adorable look, but you can write what is in the sprayers, plus the label is large enough if you want to include contents of the mixes you made. These are great for anyone from people who just buy refill solutions, make their own, or just want to transfer contents from ready-made mixtures, but desire a better sprayer. I am 100% satisfied with everything from looks, spray and how they continuously spray without a hiccup. I used one bottle to make my own salt water spray to use for my hair and the other I mixed a weed killer solution of white vinegar, salt and a few squirts of soap. The bottles are clear, so it was easy to know when the mixture of salt had fully dissolved and I could begin spraying. I save money and at the same time get rid of those pesky weeds without harming the surroundings for the animals that visit us like the squirrels, raccoon and birds. It’s a win-win product in my book!

Cornucopia Brands: Refillable Cobalt Glass 16oz Spray Bottle with Heavy Duty Sprayer #Review #CBCobaltSprayBottle

I have always made my own mixtures when it comes to cleaning products, to stain removers, and even weed killers. The one thing that always fails me is not the potions I create, but the bottles. I have had bottles that constantly drip because the sprayers are cheap (in material not price tag). This not only wastes product but also creates another mess I need to clean up. My last bottle had a sprayer that was so cheaply made, that if you filled the bottle to it’s highest level, the sprayer would pop off because the weight was too much. Infuriating!! I love also when companies label them “pro” as in professional and heavy-duty when they could not even spray simple water out successfully.

In comes CB (Cornucopia Brands) with not only a gorgeous cobalt blue colored bottle, but with a sprayer advertised as heavy duty and with a stream or spray pattern option when used.

Retail Price Point: $8.99 and free shipping with Prime membership via Amazon

Verdict:

I did not know where to land when it came to my expectations. The bottles in the past and my experience with them tended to make me well, not trust I could find a bottle that worked effectively. The bottles from Cornucopia Brands are made of a heavy glass material with a dye within the glass (not just a coloring that rubs off on the surface).  The glass is thick but not ultra heavy in weight. They are sturdy! Visually, they look stunning and I will admit I like using and looking at the pretty blue color (it matches some of the blue in our granite). Okay, but in the end how it works is all that matters to me! The glass is UV resistant, so any chemicals or solutions you make will not lose their effectiveness if they are light sensitive. I add simple window cleaner that has a vinegar base, and fill the bottle to the top. I flip the bottle upside-down, no leaks or dribbles. I then start cleaning because I know if this bottle accidentally tips on the carpet, it’s not going to create puddles. I spray and the spray is fine but controlled. It distributes a spray pattern that has a nice circumference, meaning you don’t have a wild spray where you target one area and a few squirts always make it outside where you wanted to spray. I also notice that the bottle has a decent weight at all times and no time does the bottle fall forward when it starts to empty and stays with an even distribution in weight (no tipping). No needing to catch the 1/4 empty bottle that wobbles or falls every time you but something back in the cabinet. I really appreciate that and I have been using the bottle for now 3 weeks in a row, every day and love the sprayer more with time. Why? Because it works. It’s that simple because in the end I need this sprayer to work without funny quirks and this glass bottle does every single time!

BzzAgent: Glade® PlugIns Scented Oil Customizables™ and Glade® Wax Melts Refill Packs #Review

IMAG0426 (1)

Everybody sometimes gets a funky house. Sour trashcans, All-Fried Fridays, heaping plates of brussel sprouts (aka “stinkberries” as hubby calls them). All of this creates funk. The kind you wake up in the morning, and go “Ew” over.

The lovely folks at BzzAgents must’ve had a few of those morning too, since the offered me a Glade campaign that included coupons for melts and a plug-in. Huzzah and hooray, because man, all the cooking I do around here has the house fun-KAY.

I’ll start with the Glade Wax Melts. You’ll need something to melt them in, but one little square goes a loooong way. I mean the whole house smells amazing! I was shocked at how long it lasted, how great it smelled, and how all that funk just went away. You get 8 cubes to a pack for less than three bucks! Are you kidding me? I chose “Cashmere Woods”, because it was the tail end of winter and it just smelled dreamy in the package. If it tells you anything, I’ve already bought 4 more. Can you say “stockpile”?

DSCN4224

Next up is the plug-in, Glade Scented Oil Warmers Customizables. You get to pick 2 scents, or packs of pre-selected mixes, to fill your entire house with fragrance. The cute little plug-in alternates between fragrances so you never have a chance to GO ” Ug, spiced apples AGAIN?”. Did I mention it’s adorable? It’s adorable. Not the same-old same-old white, huge, honking “Look at me!” type, a delicate little flip up plug in that looks almost as nice as it smells. With a little doo-dad on the side to adjust the amount of fragrance it puts into the air (low, medium, and “I’ve been eatin’ raw onions”), you get to customize your experience even further. Sometimes, with other plug-ins, I’d get a headache from the amount of atomized oil that gets put into the air. Not here. This one, this one’s a keeper. And at $7.48 (starter kit) for up to 60 days of great smells, it’s a true value. Plus, coupons abound.

You’ll be doing yourself a huge favor picking up one or the other (or both! 😉 ), and then you can chop garlic, fry up bacon, or eat a plate of brussel sprouts until your little heart’s content!

Orgullosa Fiesta: P&G Party with Bounty Basic, Charmin Basic and Puffs Basic…plus Coupons

I love these parties and who doesn’t? You get to share items with friends and also money saving coupons. Today we all try to save and also get the best bang for our buck and you do not need to sacrifice quality all together. Procter and Gamble helps do just that with their Basic lines, so you can still purchase necessities without breaking the wallet.

DSCN4239

I was sent a healthy assortment of products to try, share and also had a raffle giveaway for the coupons that were for the free items. Everyone loves leaving with goodies to take home and give it a “real world” test!

My Orgullosa !Esta Quincena se Celebra! Kit Included:

  • Bounty Basic:

You still get the “picker-upper” power but for a more economical price-point. We found the sheets to be thinner but if you spilled a liquid, the Basic Bounty sheet did it’s job of absorbing every last drop. The only differences we noticed is that the product can’t be reused as much as the other Bounty lines, however it all depends on your needs. I use paper towels to clean and dispose with few times needing to squeeze a second life out of a sheet. We rarely clean spills so Bounty Basic fits my needs perfectly.  We usually clean a surface and then dispose of the sheet.  I also like that the Basic sheet does not let go lint all over my counters. Having a dark granite makes it easy to spot a paper-towel that may be leaving anything behind, but Bounty Basic did not dirty while cleaning :). We all enjoyed the lower price-point and you can catch Bounty Basic on sale, plus with the coupons (look in your Sunday paper or use my link below), you get to save more!

  • Charmin Basic:

A place where skimping on quality can go wrong, in comes Charmin Basic to save the day with a lower cost toilet paper that does not require you to waste more by using more. Charmin Basic is the only toilet paper we have found that for the price point, it gives you a satisfied clean, does not require you to dust the bathroom because of the “TP linty dust” left behind like with other brands. Charmin Basic is also easy on plumbing and I found that it rarely clogs or slows a toilet when flushing. We switched like many of my guests have, to a more economical toilet paper because no one likes to flush money down the drain. I have been satisfied with how long a roll lasts and overall performance, that if Charmin Basic remains like it is, I will not be changing brands anytime soon.

  • Puffs Basic:

Out of habit, I like many others purchased the facial tissue that my parents purchased. I went with the tissue that could keep up with my allergy needs and leave me with a “kleen” nose. As time went on, the prices kept increasing and the coupons when I found them……well, they were not much savings. Sometimes I felt I was wasting ink and paper for the sake of saving! I switched at my last Orgullosa party, when P&G sent just a travel size pack. I used the pack up and realized I did not miss my former brand. I started purchasing Puffs and then tried the Basic line. Found my perfect balance of savings without sacrificing quality. I still use 1 to 2 tissues like I did with my old brand but found I’m more allergic to wasting money than pollen 🙂

  • Gifts for Guests “Entre Nosotras”:

The wonderful Orgullosa/P&G group also included gifts for my guests. We received adorable notebooks with pens, bracelets and coupons. I raffled the “freebie coupons”, to the guest that could stack more on their Bounty Basic sheet before it broke. Think of a Jenga game but with Bounty!

  • The Meal:

Being that we were close to Valentine’s Day, I baked chocolate chip cookies and just added a heart sprinkle to each one for that Valentine’s Day touch. I served my guests Kabobs with a Mediterranean Wild Rice and Vegetable Medley. I usually go the Spanish route but wanted something different for my guests and barbecuing seemed fit on this beautiful California’s day. The sun was out and since Winter forgot about us this year, we made the most of it! Everyone enjoyed the festivities and you see how happy people get when they learn to save with the Basic Everyday lines from Procter & Gamble…..savings makes smiles 😀

You can save too and check out P&G On-line but also the sites of each brand, because sharing is caring <3:
