Isn’t There a Little ‘Freak’ in Us All?

dogAlright, alright, I’m really not thrilled with some of these early videos. Especially this one because it’s so incredibly ridiculous. Not sure why I thought it was a good idea to make it. But, I did and I’m owning it.

I’m trying to get my video content consistent with my blog, then I’ll be all set to move forward.

Anyway, there’s a saying that goes, “You know you’re an adult when…you get excited that there’s a new sponge in the sink”. In my opinion, there has never been a more true statement. This next vid is right in line with that mentality. Isn’t cleaning more fun when you’ve got a new product or tool up your sleeve? I certainly think so. Take a gander (if you dare) at this vid listing some handy tools and tips you must know to get your nerd on.

 

So now that you know how incredibly dorky I am, there’s no shame in letting me know what cleaning related items are floating your boat now-days. I’d love to hear about ’em.

Until next time, keep it real and stay true to yourselves. ūü§ď

How to Clean the Pants Off Your Artificial Plants

flowerYes. I know plants don’t actually wear pants. How would that even work?

One of the issues I encounter so often when cleaning other’s (and my own) home is that any artificial plants and/or¬†flowers on the scene get particularly dusty. There are a few ways to deal with this conundrum:

  1. Dunk ’em – The best way I’ve found to clean most of these buggers, unless they are extremely¬†fragile, is to just dunk ’em. Surprisingly, most of the little guys can take it.
  2. Artificial Flower Cleaning Spray – I purchased an aerosol can of this from my local floral shop (whoop, whoop Springfield Floral). I then took my artificial¬†bouquet¬†outside on my driveway and sprayed away. It works pretty well on any florals that can’t be submerged.
  3. Computer Duster – Using canned air or computer duster is also a great way to “blow off” delicate flowers. Again, the gold standard is dunking here, but if you’re short on time or just like playing with computer duster, hey, have at it.

Got dusty artificial flowers and/or plants on your hands? Have no fear, Peachy Clean is here…to show you how to get those flowers into tip-top shape.

If you’ve got any other plantastic¬†cleaning tips for me, I’d love to here about them!

Until then keep it real and stay true to yourself.

The ReLaunch

YT¬†Hello all my TwIsTeD pEaChEs! I have been working diligently this summer on the relaunch of my YouTube Channel. I have not posted a new vid since last April. I’ve been on hiatus trying to learn how to improve. I think I’ve learned quite a bit and it will definitely show once I start uploading vids again.

https://www.youtube.com/channel/UC_8buQkZKsbZ4zeZ6kXIgfA

Besides learning, I have been working my tail off on new content. I have 2 vids in the bag and a new channel trailer to boot. So here it is. I’m going to give you guys a sneak-peek of my new trailer. You will not see this anywhere else! ūüėÄ Well, not until September at least.

I’m so excited to relaunch my Channel! I’ve learned much Grasshopper, but I still have more to go.

If any of you have any questions about social media content (especially YouTube), hit me up. I’ve spent many working hours this summer listening to the classics – Darrel Eves, Tim Schmoyer, Roberto Blake, Nick Nimman, Brian G. Johnson, Brittany Bullen, and so much more.

Maybe I’ll know the answer to your question, maybe I won’t, but hey, let’s talk anyway. I really don’t bite (I’m more of a kicker). j/k.

Don’t touch that dial, because you all will be the first to know when my channel gets its facelift.

Okay Peaches, keep it real and stay true to yourself…I’m out.

Cut Loose

clear bubbles¬†Hello¬†to all my tWiStEd PeAcHeS! So sorry I have not updated you all on how my soap turned out. The real truth is…I’m not really sure. As you know, I tried a new lard soap recipe. And as usual, it looked great going into the mold, but 48 hours later, well…you be the judge:

IMG_1632

The texture of it is soooo soft. The only way that I can describe it is taking a tube of Chapstick, winding it all the way up and out of the tube, and squishing it between your fingers. Now I am an EXTREMELY green soap maker. So….is that right? That doesn’t seem right to me.

Now I know that it needs to cure for 6 to 8 weeks, so I cut it up and tucked it away. Guess I’ll just wait until mid-September for the final verdict. Any of you seasoned soap maker/fly-girls care to help me out?

See the recipe below:

Who knew that making soap was so very complicated? Darn, you science! You know I’ll keep you all informed as it progresses through the saponification process.

Until next time, keep it real and stay true to yourself!

Ding, Ding, Ding…Round 2.

Well, here I am again. Giving the soap-making another shot. For those of you who have not followed me thus far, my first attempt and cold-process soap-making was an epic fail. But, if at first, you don’t succeed…So to refresh¬†your memory, here’s a photo from my first attempt.¬†soap

Yeah, can’t get much worse right? That’s what I figured.

The new recipe that I tried uses lard, olive oil, and castor oil. Lard (rendered fat) is great for the skin.¬†¬†It won’t clog pores and it resembles the structure of human skin cells which are composed of saturated fats. Lard soap is closer to our skin than plant-based soaps. Ready for some pics?

So I’m letting set up now and will be ready for the cut soon. Let’s cross our fingers!

See you next time. Until then, be peachy!

I’m so Motivated to Clean my House…Said No One EVER!

Uh motivation…we could all use it from time to time – especially when it comes to tidying your house. In this video, we will talk about some of the barriers that can exist between you and a clean home. Focus, energy, distraction, and feeling overwhelmed are just some of the short-comings we all have. However, the joy that comes from a job well done, priceless! Check it out.

 

What types of things put pep in your step and motivate you to turn your home from drab to fab?

A Cleaner World? Let’s Make It Together.

cropped-peach-logo.jpg What do people all over the world have in common? We all deal with dirt, mess, and general dusty-ness. I have taken a trip to some very special places and learned some very special techniques to crazy-clean your home.

The first place we visit is the amazing land of Africa for a sweeping good lesson.

Then we’re off to Asia (China to be exact). Who knew about bamboo scrubbers? Not this girl!

Then it’s Mexico here we come – to¬†learn how to fend off ghosts (what?).

And our last stop is Mother Russia for the moral of the story.
