Rubbermaid LunchBlox Sandwich Kit Review

Back to school is quickly approaching!  Gosh where did the summer go?!  Now it's time to think about  packing lunches again.  My kids pack their lunch everyday for school, well shall I say I pack their lunches.  Since I tend to use reusable containers rather than plastic baggies, these snack and sandwich containers fill up the lunchbox very quickly making it harder to keep all the food chilled.  And sometimes I just can't fit it all, but I think I found the answer in the LunchBlox Sandwich Kit, by Rubbermaid

photo courtesy of
  • Containers stack compactly to stay organized
  • Blue Ice™ keeps your lunch cool on the go
  • Secure lid seal
  • BPA-free
  • Microwave, Dishwasher, and Freezer Safe
  • Sandwich container holds regular and specialty bread
  • Sandwich Kit includes 2 Snack Containers, 1 Side Container, 1 Sandwich Container and 1 Medium Blue Ice

My opinion:

The sandwich kit is durable and most important, dishwasher safe.  The lids stays tightly closed, but easy to open so you know your little one won't have any problems getting into his/her lunch.  I love the idea how the containers stack and fit neatly on the Blue Ice, keeping your food cool and your lunchbox organized.  You even have the option of just using the Blue Ice alone with either of containers,  again keeping your lunchbox orderly. Also you have the option of buying individual containers so you can arrange the containers according to your lunch.  The sandwich kit will definitely get a lot of use here over the course of this school year!!

The Rubbermaid LunchBlox Sandwich Kit approximate retail is $12.99 and is sold at WalMart, Target, and Kmart to name a few.  To find a retailer near you click here

Frigidaire "Adventures in Clean"

Having a family is an absolute joy, but the adventures we embark can be messy too just like in the new upcoming Disney film, The Odd Life of Timothy Green Frigidaire, makers of the Frigidaire Affinity® front load washing machine delivers a better clean to help families spend less time in the  laundry room and more time for bigger adventures.

Our biggest adventures seem to be in the summer.  We are outside a lot more with barbequing, time at the pool or beach, road trips, and amusement parks.  And with all this fun and food, there will be a summer stain or two which can make doing laundry a little tough.  I definitely don't want to waste precious time in the laundry room so laundry expert Tara Aronson shares solutions for the five most common summer spills:

Smudges, drips, drops and smears – no matter what their source, the key to keeping them from ruining your favorite shorts or T-shirt is to take quick action – before it gets a chance to dry.

For most fabrics, this means blotting up the excess or rinsing the discolored area with cold water (hot can set a stain.) Don’t rub: this spreads the spot and grinds it deeper into the fabric.
Summer spills are especially tough. Here’s how to remove the five most common:

1. Crayon.
Scrape off as much of the colorful surface as possible using a plastic picnic knife. Apply laundry detergent directly on the stained area. Gently rub the detergent into the fabric then let sit several minutes. Launder using the hottest water the fabric can handle - or the Sanitize setting of your Frigidaire Affinity washer. Dry as usual.

2. Iced coffee.
Sponge the stained area with cold water. Apply a pretreater to the blight. Wash as usual and air dry.

3. Grass.
Prewash the garment in warm water in your washing machine –the Rinse & Spin cycle on your Affinity washer – and a laundry detergent containing enzymes. Launder as usual (normal setting) with detergent and chlorine bleach if safe for the fabric. If the garment’s care label instructions advise against it, use oxygen (color safe) bleach instead. Dry as usual.

4. Juice.
Soak for a minute or so in cold water. Remove excess water, and then apply a pretreater directly on the stained area. Wash with detergent as usual. Air dry. Do not place in the dryer until the blight is completely gone – otherwise the stain is likely to set.

5. Chocolate (or chocolate ice cream).
Prewash the garment in warm water with a laundry detergent that contains enzymes using the Affinity’s Rinse & spin setting. Launder as usual, using the washing machine’s Normal setting. Dry as usual.
And so you can spend more time doing the things you love, here are some tips on getting your clothes cleaner: 

Immediately rinse or blot away spills on your clothes with cool water to prevent stains from setting. 

 Before washing stained garments, pretreat or prewash the spot using the Affinity’s Rinse & Spin cycle. If at first you don’t succeed, wash, wash again.

 If your clothing is heavily soiled, your load large, or the water cold, add extra laundry detergent. Use the Affinity’s Heavy Duty cycle for sturdy but really dirty items like jeans and towels; choose the Sanitize setting to use the hottest water available to get rid of germs and grime as thoroughly as possible.

 Check wet garments for remaining stains, and re-treat as needed before drying. Heat will set stains.

Fold shirts and T-shirts to prevent wrinkling. If the shirt has buttons, button it at top, middle and bottom. Lay facedown. Fold both sides of the shirt so they meet in the back, with the sleeves aligned with the side folds. Fold the tail up to the cuffs, making a straight line at the bottom. Then fold in thirds crosswise. For T-shirts: a child’s T-shirt needs only one crosswise fold in half; an adult’s should be folded into thirds.

 Fold shorts and pants by aligning the inseams and outer seams of the legs and fold so that a crease forms at the front center of the legs. Fold in half or in thirds, depending on the size of the garment.

Visit and share your on personal "Adventure In Clean". Frigidaire will donate $1 to Save the Children, as part of its $750,000 commitment to the cause. It’s simple to share just upload a photo and the online app turns it into your very own movie poster!  Everyone who participates is also entering to win a new Frigidaire Affinity® washer and dryer featuring Ready Steam™.

Ecover Zero Automatic Dishwasher Tablets Review

When I clean even though it looks clean I worry about the residue of chemicals left behind.  Ecover, founded in 1980, make safe cleaning products for your household, laundry, and dishwashing.  The products contain only natural ingredients protecting your dishes, laundry, floors, and work surfaces from toxins while also keeping the world greener.

Ecover Zero Automatic Dishwashing Tablets are a fragrance free, phospate-free tablet leaving your dishes sparkling clean.

  • Cleans and degreases effectively, with no fragrance
  • Easy dosing
  • Plant-based and mineral ingredients
  • Not tested on animals
  • Suitable for septic tanks

My Opinion:

The box contains 25 individually wrapped tablets, remove the wrapper and place in the dispenser or cutlery basket.  I've been using Ecover Zero Automatic Dishwasher Tablets for 3 weeks and I must say I haven't been disappointed.   I have some dishwasher safe plastic cereal bowls that I put on the top rack.  Now my normal dishwasher detergent left them with spots and I always ended up rewashing because I felt they were just not clean enough.  Since using Ecover Zero I've noticed no spots and the rest of the dishes have a brilliant clean.  

For more information about Ecover Zero visit

To purchase Ecover visit for a store near you, or buy online at

**disclosure:  I received a full size sample from Ecover and for my honest review.  Opinions are my own and yours may differ.
