Word Press!

Once again, I am making changes to this blog. I have decided to switch over to WordPress, with my own domain name hosted on HostGator. I am completely unfamiliar with WordPress so this will be a transitional project for me. I will continue to have the blog here until I am ready to go live with the WP blog. Hopefully this isn't too difficult for me to do by myself and it runs smoothly. Thank you everyone! Hope to speed up the site a bit!

My new page will be available on my hosted website bmlts.com, from there you can access my WP blog which I am starting from scratch since I cannot transfer from blogger.

Purex Insiders- Purex UltraPacks plus Oxi

I recently received Purex Plus Oxi UltraPacks, these handy little laundry pods are great for HE machines and top loaders alike, I personally have an HE and knowing just how much detergent for each load can be a pain. These are single load, easy to use concentrated laundry pods that you can just toss and go! I have personally never used a detergent capsule before getting these to try so I am still on the fence, I have a load in the wash right now, which is a big test load. I accidentally washed new navy blue sheets with a white pillowcase--ack! I am hoping that my now baby-blue pillowcase will wash clean, it hasn't been dried yet, at least I caught it so hopefully the stain is not set in.

Since this pillowcase is now one big stain, I am hoping that these cute little laundry pods pack a punch! Unfortunately though when I went to switch loads out and put the load in the dryer, the pillowcase is still blue! Oh well, lesson learned! But--everything is clean as can be and I didn't have to mix anything at all. Smells wonderful and super fresh, and I popped one of my Purex Sweet Lavender Fabric Softener sheets this load is all set! Now I just need a laundry folding machine!
The Navy-blue sheets that went in with the white pillowcase!
This is supposed to be white!
So, I learned a tough lesson here: make sure there are no hidden whites in your dark loads, and also to make laundry time so much easier, use a pre-measured Purex UltraPack plus Oxi. I wish everything were as easy as doing laundry these days!
