Spring Cleaning with e-cloth

e-cloth

For the past few months I have been getting to know e-cloth and I have fallen in love!
I first learned about e-cloth at ABC Kids Expo last year and was immediately intrigued with the fact that you could clean your home using only water! e-cloth removes over 99% of bacteria without any added cleaners. Sounds amazing and it is!

e-cloth has a full range of cleaning products for all the rooms of your home, body care, pet care, auto care and baby care. Not only do they remove bacteria, but the design of the different cloths help clean without much scrubbing. Win, win!

Another thing I love about e-cloth is that it is completely reusable and eco-friendly! You just wash and use again. No more waste with disposable cleaning cloths and mops.

If you have been wanting to kick the chemicals to the curb and start spring cleaning toxin free, now is the perfect time!

I've tried e-cloth in every area of the home and it has made cleaning much simpler. To clean my home, I was using different mixes of baking soda, vinegar and essential oils, but with e-cloth all you need is the cloths and water.

There's a variety of cloths for the kitchen, including dish cloths, range and stove top. The dish washing cloths are light and great for washing dishes and wiping down kitchen surfaces.
It's so helpful each cloth has a tag on it that tells you what it's used for!

The range and stove top cloth has a smooth side for removing grease, oil and general cleaning, and  scrubbing stripes side to remove stuck on hardened messes without scratching surfaces.

The super absorbent bathroom cloth removes dirt, grime and bacteria from tubs, showers, sinks, vanities, faucets, tile, mirrors and windows.

It's kind of hard to get a picture of our bathroom floor tile grime, but the left is before and the right is after! The one great thing about grey marble tile is it hides blemishes well. lol!

e-cloth has more than just home cleaning products. They have products for auto care, pet carebody care and baby care. Baby Care by e-cloth includes hand and face cleaning cloths and luxury hooded towels!

The hooded towels are a game changer! They are super soft and quickly wicks away moisture from your little ones skin, so that they are drier faster. S and K love baths, but hate getting out because they get cold. I put these towels on them right away and they are happy campers! Plus they love how plush and comfy they are too.
I just wish they had adult sizes!

40 Day Juice Fast, Day 16

40 day juice fast

Day 16 of 40. My previous extended fast was 14 days, so this is the longest I have ever fasted for!
People seem to either love juice fasting for wellness and mental clarity or they think it's not so great. I obviously think it's amazing and this is my experience. I'm not a medical professional, so please do your own research before embarking on a fast of any kind and listen to your body!
If you have questions, please leave them below.

BBQ Lentil Sliders

bbq lentil sliders

One of S and K's favorite things to eat is lentils!
 They love these BBQ sliders as well as when I make peanut butter lentils over rice. I'll get the recipe for that up soon!
These are super easy to prepare. To make it even simpler, I make them in our rice cooker. You can also use a regular pot on stove top, crock pot or instant pot. It takes about 40 minutes in the rice cooker until the lentils are tender. Your cooking time will obviously vary if you use one of the other methods above.

BBQ Lentils
1c lentils
3c water
2tsp better than bouillon
1tbs molasses
4tbs ketchup
1tsp aminos or tamari
1/2tsp onion powder
1/2tsp sesame oil
1/2tsp smoked paprika
1 clove minced garlic
black pepper to taste

Rinse and drain lentils. Add to the pot with all other ingredients. Bring to a boil and then reduce to simmer and cover.

Cook covered until lentils are tender.

We enjoy these on slider buns!

Or as a quick snack with crackers.

They're also great over rice, over kale, in burritos. I haven't tried it yet, but I imagine they would be great on nachos!
