"Trap The Stink" Bathroom Spray



"Trap the Stink" Bathroom Spray

There really isn't a whole lot to talk about on this subject other than this spray is something that will just make your life a little better. 

No one likes to walk into a stinky bathroom or be the one to cause it especially if you are outside your home, but when nature calls you can be prepared to trap that stink. 



I have made sprays for each bathroom and made a smaller one to keep in my purse for those on the go moments.

Trap the Stink bathroom spray does exactly what it says. Spritz on the top of the water in the toilet BEFORE you go and the essential oils will make a thin layer on the top of the water and trap in the smell leaving the bathroom smelling better than before. 


Here are the items you will need. Just add the oils into the spray bottle and top off with Witch Hazel.

15 drops of Bergamot Essential Oil
15 drops of Grapefruit Essential Oil
15 drops of Lemongrass Essential Oil
Top off with Witch Hazel

That's it! So simple and so easy. Enjoy!

Crock Pot Beef and Broccoli

I love Chinese food and always have. I don't eat it very often but I do love to make it. Chinese food can be expensive so learning how to make it at home can save you a lot of money.

Spring Cleaning Naturally - Make your own products




Spring Clean Naturally



When was the last time you looked at the back of your cleaning supplies labels? You will be surprised  at what you find.

I honestly hadn't thought about it much but my kids school focuses on the environment and teaches them to use cleaner materials in our home. They came home asking why we don't use our oils for our cleaning supplies? Uhhhhhh, what do you say to that?  They are right. So we are making our own and moving forward.

Here are a few ideas for you to use for cleaning supplies in your home for your Spring cleaning. It is simple and easy. When using a sprayer you will want to use a class sprayer or a PET plastic spray bottle

Kid Approved Chicken Fingers - Gluten Free

Kid Approved Chicken Fingers 
Gluten Free


Since making the choice to go Gluten Free I have been so surprised how easy it has been to eat better and gone are the days of boring Gluten Free foods. There is so much available now in the grocery stores, whole food stores and Amazon. 

Because I am eating better my kids are getting the benefit of it as well. If I eat fast food they will too, bit eating Gluten Free has not been hard for then because most the time they don't even know they are eating it. 

I found these crackers that I talked about in my Diabetes post. They have been a life saver and they have many different flavors to chose from. My grocery store only has the Almond, Pecan and Cheddar. I LOVE THEM! So much you can use them food. Amazon has other flavors available as well  if you don't have them in your area.

Diabetes - My Life Changing Experience




Diabetes - My Life Changing Experience


I have thought a lot about what I was going to share in this post. It is difficult to put a life changing experience into words because it is so important for me that it comes across where it can help others that might be experiencing the same thing. I really hope that you will listen closely to what I am saying and make any personal changes that you feel you need to. I wish I had sooner than later. 

 I LOVE FOOD and always have. I just love to eat. I have always sworn that I have a bigger stomach than the average person and that is what makes me so hungry all the time. :)

Sunday Snapshot March 1st, 2015



Welcome to Riches to Rags by Dori Sunday Snapshots. Sunday is my favorite day to get outside, relax and take some pictures. I hope you enjoy these farm photos.  

We had a couple of inches of snow last night but it quickly melted. We had had unseasonably warm temperatures and now winter has decided to show up again. We could use the moisture. 

Stick around for more Sunday snapshots.
