Spring Cleaning: Bathroom

Yes, it's me in my ALL pink bathroom.
This was when I was 6 months preggers! 

Fully equipped with pink tub, pink sink, pink toilet, pink floor tiles going up to mid-height on walls, and a big wide wall mirror. There used to be a glass shelf above the toilet but it fell down. The medicine cabinet does have the same glass shelves inside of it. If you've got a house in St. Louis made in the 1940s, 1950s, or 1960s, then most likely you have an original all pink, brown, blue, sea foam green, or yellow bathroom! The "Mamie pink" phenomenon did not escape the old school buildings either. All throughout middle school and high school I saw the exact same pink tiles in the restroom. The sink in middle school wasn't a regular sink though, it was more like a huge round group fountain with foot peddles to pump the water out.

Any ways, now that I've went down memory lane...
Here's a green bathroom cleaner:

Lemon Juice and Vinegar: Got stains, mildew or streaks? Douse porcelain and tiles with lemon juice and vinegar. Let sit a few minutes, then scrub with a stiff brush. As always, you can use kosher salt with added elbow grease on toughies!

Manly Monday

Check out this awesome post from Momof8! Where have all the men gone? I suppose these are the very things that made me start "Manly Monday" on my blog. I'm not saying none of these acts of manliness happen in my life ever. It is just great to know that such manly man do still exist. Nothing wrong with a woman having real expectations for the men in (and outside of) her life.
